Forego spending time fishing through Craigslist for used tanks, equipment and unwanted aquatic species, and instead go straight to Fish Aquariums and Stuff. For those with a thing for the fishies, it's a lifesaver in a sea of confusion for both freshwater and saltwater aquariums. The new location on Fairview--housed in an old auto garage--has plenty of room for its new and used aquatic gear. The back of the store is where the fish swim--one side for freshwater and the other side holds the saltwater species. It's a fun place to just go look in case you can't make a trip to snorkel in a tropical underwater paradise to look for starfish, crabs and puffer fish. And this way, you don't even have to hold your breath.
