RE: SAEs in Baltimore-Washington


Thanks for the heads up, went up there and snagged four of those suckers.
They are very healthy and active.  Couple of minutes after putting them in
the tank, they went right to work on the bits of algae that was starting to
form in my tank.

It's a bit of a hike for me to go to Aquarium Center, but IMHO, it's the
best Aquarium shop in the Baltimore-Washington area.  BTW, if anyone knows
of a similar outfit closer to Bethesda, let me know.


Bethesda, MD.
