Default San Diego

Here are a few in San Diego. I can only vouch for Fountains (pronounced fontanes), Aquatic Warehouse, and Pet Kingdom. Fontanes has some plants in decent shape but nothing special and a little pricey. Pet Kingdom usually has crap for plants and basically shoved them out of the way under some of their fauna tanks. Aquatic Warehouse is geared more toward salt water, but I take my excess plants in there for 1/3 cost store credit. Depends on who you get for how much credit you get. One guy has a clue, another one doesn't, and it's the difference of $1 per sag. subulata plantlet and $1 per three plantlets. For filter parts I go between AW and PK.

The rest of the stores I stole from the San Diego Tropical Fish Society web site. Guppy and I were at their last auction. I about broke even between the two plants I bought (ozelot sword and a ton of java moss) and the two I sold (A ton of dwarf sag. and 3 stems of b. japonica). It started at 7 and went late, but there were some definite deals there on fish and equipment (Some excellent discus went for really really cheap). Even saw a former PK employee there (Thought she was buying for the store but it turns out she quit gleefully and does computer work now).
