Leaping lizards is great but Bruce and Sara at twin city reptiles are extremely knowledgable, very easy to deal with, and IMO have much cheaper prices and much more variety.

Twin Cities Reptile! They have an enormous amount of reptiles and the workers there seemed very helpful. However, dont go there if your looking for fish... That section of the store was very poor.
2.5 gal (betta, 2 mystery snails)
2.5 gal (ghost shrimp, plus tons of babies!)
8 gal (soon to be a shrimp tank)
20 gal (2 chocolate gouramis, 6 rasboras, 3 endler guppies, 1 albino pleco, plants)
55 gal (BRAND NEW, just began cycling, many new plants)

Question on these shops, do they carry any live plants? Looking for other options to go to other than nuseries/greenhouses for small-medium size plants.

There is little doubt that the best shops are ones with huge selections. My grandson kept a bearded dragon for years. I see this reptile and a few others in many fish stores such as TerreQuatics and Forest Lake Pets and have played with the stock at TQ. If a store has what I want in fish, I will drive there. If browsing is what I want then I like a store with a huge selection.
