I love this place--rows and rows of stacked aquaruims! Mostly tropicals but they did have a gf section so here's some pix.

Nice pics! I love the totally white common in the last pic. If I buy a new fish, it will be a black and white one. I just love them!

Okay everybody! Step away from the oranda! It's MINE! OMG! How gorgeous! I would wonder about the white stuff. Can that be "normal" in a wen? Really, I don't know. Could it be?

It is quite normal, as the wen grows they get opaque white spots which are points of new wen growth.

Very cool! I was just wondering, are pet stores ok with you taking pictures of the fish? I might be interested in taking pictures of fish at the store so my parents can ok a fish for their tank as a replacement for Ophie when I take her so they don't have to go.

Yeah, it's always best to ask permission to take pictures - after all the store is private property, most stores are very obliging but it's good manners to check first :)

Thats what I thought, though I often see people taking video and pictures of animals in pet stores. I wonder if it is a common thing? If I tell them why I am taking the pictures (to choose a fish) I hope they will let me. And maybe I can post some here if I find some beauties. ;)
