That's because most local fish store still don't know much about planted tank. It's slowly getting there with clubs around the US helping to educate them.
It was a rhetorical question. ;) It's still a shame that the stores have to be educated.

yup, it's a shame. Hanging around most store around me, I also think that it's their vendor too. But with ADG, AFA, seachem, and Florida Aquatic Nusery around. I think we are in the right direction. :yawinkle:

It's because the freshwater planted aquaria hobby has a strong foothold in Europe, maybe even moreso than reefs. Hence you naturally find more and more companies geared towards that specific area (ie. JBL, Dennerle, Tetra, Tropica, etc.) It's even safe to say Southeast Asia is ahead of us as well in that respect.

Here in the US, saltwater has a much larger following and it shows in conventions such as MACNA.
