The store he's talking about is House of Tropics down on Rt. 50 in lower Price Hill. Good place, really big, although I've never bought fish from them. As some of you know, I stick with getting my fish things from Monfort Aquarium and Pets...family owned and operated for over thirty years like House of Tropics. I won't buy from Jack's or the chain stores, with the exception of the four otos we got recently (sale price plus my mom was doing a demo there so that was an addition % off I think.) So the only three that I -would- buy from are Monfort, House of Tropics, and if I ever win the lottery, Aquarium Adventure.

House of Tropics is ok with plants. Mostly low-light easy plants - swords, crypts, moss, a few stem plants. That's about all I remember them having.

Hello, Amingra
I am also new guy. I attended the last meeting at Matts house and everyone was great. I am in the process of converting a 58 gal reef setup into a freshwater planted tank. I have stuff coming in the mail right now and I still need to get up some cash to buy my co2 outfit. Been working on laying out my aquascape on paper so I have a plan and know what goes where when I finally am able setup.

When AA first opened around here they were just awesome. Beautiful tanks. People seemed to know their stuff. Lately, the tanks have gone to crap, there is not very much selection and they are waaaayyyyyy overpriced on everything. I have bought fish from there on 2 separate occasions. Both time they got ich and half died. I don't go 'round them parts no more. Hopefully the C-bus stores are a lot better.

They have their days. Most of the time they do well. They are alittle more expensive, but not much more so than anything else. there tanks are MUCH cleaner than anything else around here. I also know when the fish come in, so i can let them get them healthy and stablize them before i take the mhome

LOL, Well, I am a newbie. At least he did not say anything so blatantly rule of thumb (if you have a really huge thumb) like I have heard some folks say at some of the marts. But I get your point.

Colerain avenue. Just south of Northgate mall. Well, not just south. From 275 go south until you pass Galbraith rd. On the left hand side. Kroger is on the right.
