    We have a lot of stores. Most of them are bread and butter stores. What are you looking for? Not much in the way of different African Cichlids. Most of us that have them have gotten them elsewhere. We have quite a few breeders here in the area.

    This a reply I sent to someone asking about LFS. I did not include them all.
    This is just my opinion, I am not endorsing or slamming anyone.
    There are a lot of stores here in KC area. I haven't been to all
    of them myself.

    North of the river:

    An old established store. The last time I was there they had
    angel fish spawning and raising babies in the store. I
    bought some healthy loaches there at a very good price. Mostly
    common fish.

    understand the store has changed owners.

    Definitely worth the trip. It is a interesting store with all kinds of creatures. It is almost a zoo.
    They get in a lot of different fish.
    not many African cichlids the last time I was there.
    It was over 2 years ago and I spent $66 on fish. Mostly Cory cats.
    Blue Ridge Pets orders with them so a lot of the different fish are at Blue ridge pets

    Best of the box stores I have been too.
    They have different fish. They are a little pricey, but
    fish are well taken care of.
    They will buy from the hobbyist.

    Used to be a good store, but it is not worth the effort to
    go at this time. They are redoing their fish dept.

    One of the oldest stores in the KC area in a new location.
    Nice selection of fish. You will find some different fish
    from time to time. A little pricey. Especially hard
    goods.The fish are washed out because of the bare bottom tanks and
    light background. I enjoy going there
    I have found some bargains there. They have some unusual fish.
    I went there today I saw a lot of different fish.
    Uaru cichlids
    Vampire Tetras
    Orchid loaches
    Hifin sharks
    tank busters
    nice swordtails

    Fish World Llc

    Phone: 816-220-7766
    Small store
    Not much there, but knowledgeable. They have some of the
    best prices on hard goods. They will order what you want in hard goods.
    They are redoing their freshwater tanks.

    A couple more I went to today.

    Fish Shack and City pets.
    both had clean tanks and the fish looked good.
    Just nothing special.

    I added this store. It is one of my favorites. Jesse, the owner is very
    pleasant and helpful.
    Not a lot different fish, But very clean and has the best
    prices around on hard goods. He is not open until after 3pm
    American Aquarium
    22 NE Highway 52
    Clinton MO 64735-9398
    Phone: 660-885-2948

    I didn't add any of the box stores PetsMart and Petco's
    ect. Except for the 2 I listed. I don't usually recommend them
    as a lot of their fish come from questionable sources. Pond
    bred fish=hybrid fish. They do not buy from the hobbyist
    so I usually don't buy from them. I have bought from them
    when they had specials on common fish.
    I hope this helps. If you have any questions about any
    other stores let me know. I did not include all the stores or Salt Water.
    There is always Cabela's and Bass Pro
    You could post on our HAAS forum and maybe the people close to these stores could tell you more what they have.
    I have 70 aquariums. My tanks are getting crowded with babies . I am keeping cichlids and livebearers. Way too many fish.

    I haven't seen any for some time. When I have seen them they were multi's. Of course I have not been to very many of the stores lately. I used to see some at one store .but he doesn't seem to get any interesting fish anymore. I will look tomorrow when I am out. See if Kevin (loacheman) can get you any. I got some several years ago from one of his supplies through Todd Hancock. I don't have them anymore.
