Welcome to Colorful (and dry) Colorado. Aren't all the shades of brown lovely?

One of the oldest fish clubs in Denver is the Colorado Aquarium Society 


There are other clubs but I'm not familiar with them. 
Chuck already mentioned Neptunes in south Denver. Up on the very far northwest 
end, Boulder actually, is Exotic Aquatics. We've been getting all our fish there 

Sherman Tank on north Federal Blvd is(was) good. They (used to?) get bulk 
shipments of fish and plants in and sold them cheap and quickly. Haven't been 
there for awhile. 

Aquaria on Colorado Blvd is good for marine fish, not so hot on freshwater (last 
time I was there). 

Nautilus in Longmont (hey, it's Colorado, get used to driving a long way to get 
what you want!) just moved to a new location. They are not that impressive (so 
far) but are willing to work with you to get what you want, which is impressive. 

The best store for plants, IMHO, is Denizen's of the Deep in Ft. Collins (an 
hour north of downtown Denver on I-25). If you head that way, drop me a note and 
stop by to see our tanks.
