IMHO, as far as "That Fish Place" goes, I wouldn't drive an hour and a half out of
my way to visit there.  I was in the area last year on a business trip so I stopped
by.  I was not overly impressed.  I guess if you like shopping in a "Sam's Club"
kind of atmosphere it was okay.  It's mostly just a big warehouse kind of set up
primarily devoted to hard goods.  Lots of fish and plants too, but again housed in a
"warehouse".  The tanks are not set up to display the livestock, just to keep it
alive and healthy for shipment.  I'm sure you can probably find some interesting
plants or fish in their tanks if you have a way to get them home.  ( Not much of a
problem for plants, little more trouble for fish.)  Weather you like it or not I
guess depends on what you expect to find.  Maybe I just expected too much.
