I stopped by Albany Aquarium on San Pablo in Berkeley the other day and 
since it had been well over two years since I have been there, some things 
had changed.  Bay Area people will probably know this, but it was nice for 
me to see that at least one store within 100 miles has an emphasis on 
freshwater plants. [truncated]

Hi Roxanne,

Same owner (Guy, pronounced Gwee), though perhaps he's shifted his design 
aesthetics; the large 100+ gallon acrylic planted aquarium upstairs was 
designed (and currently maintained) by Jeff Kropp! Jeff's 227L tank is 
showcased at the AGA Aquascaping Contest, and with an interview @ 

Great store, and one of the first to bring in SAE's so long ago. Even if you 
don't find what you're looking for, you can spend a lot of time staring at 
the aquariums. For aquaplant emphasis, Ocean Aquarium in San Francisco (on 
Cedar & VanNess) is excellent as well. :-)
