Cooper,
What days do you normally work there? Might want to turn on the lights for the plants. There wasn't any light for the last time I visited there about 2 weeks ago.

Dude...I was at Hacienda Aquatics yesterday per ShortFin's suggestion. Had I read this post earlier, I would have stopped by Cooper's store as well - it doesn't appear to be that much further (sheer 626 baby!!!). Maybe this weekend I'll swing by to pick up some hairgrass and microswords.

Guys, can we take the extras out of the LFS sticky thread? It's getting a bit crowded in here.

EDIT: Mt deleting finger has had a workout today

About the endler: I purchased my first "endler" there. I was really happy till and I got home and found out it wasn't an endler.
They have a new shipment of fish that look like endlers, but they are not. They seem to be hybrids.
EDIT: sorry for the extra posting. didn't mean to crowd out the thread even more.

The three times I've been to South Bay Tropical in Chula Vista they really didn't have that much selection for plants, it seems geared more towards saltwater. They also have reptile and bird stuff. Aquatic Warehouse and Fountain's Aquarium seem pretty decent but are too far of a drive for me. I wish there was a decent place in South San Diego so I wouldn't have to drive all the way to Pet Kingdom!

To update since the last post for San Diego residents and visitors: I have noticed lately that Aquatic Warehouse has increased their prices on a lot of fish and accessories. It may be because of the economy, but they priced an albino cory at $15 when you normally see them from $3-$5. I got mine for $2.00 through the forums. Anyway, Pet Kingdom seems to keep their prices lower than a bunch of stores in the area and I've had no problems with them. They also re-did their fish room. Looks a lot neater and roomier. As far as the LFS in Clairmont, Octopuss Garden and I forget the name of the other one (something with Goldfish in it);their selection was minimal and I saw some "painted fish" that made me not want to go into that store. Just my preference. As I am glad that there are LFS' in the area, it's disappointing that I have to buy them online instead of driving to the store and getting them right away.
