The bankroll's low, the coin jar's empty, and your date's arriving in a few minutes; what to do? Escort your sweetie to Ocean Aquarium in the Tenderloin for some quality time among the cichlids, plecos, and goodeids. This friendly, hard-to-find hole in the wall carries a dazzling variety of tropical fish far more colorful and mollifying than your standard Hollywood shoot'em-up. Snowballs, green phantoms, rainbow fish, and bettas in lavender, gold, steel blue, and every color in between flare their tails and extend their fins in an ever-changing diorama of light, shade, and hue. The store's hundred tanks contain not only rare and unusual fish both wild and domestic, but also lush, thriving plants serving as handsome backdrop. Next stop: coffee and doughnuts!
