I found Fintastik on the web, and decided to drive to Antioch to check out this store on my day off. I dont know what compels people to leave bad reviews, but more often than not I find that these reviews are not all that reliable. Fintastik is not a large store, but they had a good selection of sponge filters, which is what I came for. Prices were what I expected, very comparable to my local stores. The store also had a good selection of live foods, tubifex worms as well as the California Black worm, but I didnt buy any as the day was very hot and I had a long drive in front of me. I spoke to the owner, Rick, for quite a while, and he was a very nice gentleman who obviously have a lot of experience with fishkeeping. If youre into Angel Fish, this store is definitely worth a visit. Rick breed these fish, and knows quite a bit about them. In fact, once I return from my vacation, Im going back to buy some Angel Fish from him. Before I left, I mentioned to Rick that I have some picky eaters, my Celestial Pearl Danios and a female Betta who wont take flake food. Rich suggested that I tried some freeze dried California Worms...this is a specialty item that I havent seen sold in any other stores, Rick labels them himself. Because its a freeze dried, the nutrition is very high...and my fish love it. Overall, if you dont live to far away, I highly recommend paying this store a visit; its also in a nice setting right next to the delta.
I absolutely adore Rick!!!! I purchased my buttakoferi tilapia from him and he is doing quite well.I plan to stop by this afternoon and pick up a Black ghost fish and an Arowana as soon as I get off of work.I will not purchase fish anywhere else aside from Ricks store.He is knowledgeable, friendly and if you come at the right time and have the chance to meet his daughter and her husband, you will really appreciate them too.His daughter has a huge discus tank.Really good people.
Rick who is the owner is knowledgeable and nice. He has helped me more than once, and because of this it seems that every time I come in just to look I end up walking out with a fish! If you need a fish that he doesnt have he will even do the extra step and order it for you!. Not only do His fish look great but the prices are reasonable as well. so you should stop on by, you wont be disappointed!!
I purchased 2 beautiful large Glolite fish and 6 cardinal tetras. The owner told me he doesnt waste a lot of time monitoring the water parameters, but ages his water instead. I was skeptical, since cardinal tetras are VERY sensitive. Guess what? All of these fish are thriving in my 55 gallon tank. Sometimes less really is more.
This is a very small store but full of products, interesting fish and aquarium plants. The owner is knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend a visit. (And check out the downtown area with a walk before purchasing. Its a beautiful area)
Rick knows discus front back and sideways..he is the Discus man. His knowledge shows in the class of discus that he breeds...And in his fish in the store..Ill be back for more
Great fish and Owner is very helpful. I bought 5 Discus that he breeds himself. Very health fish and going strong.
Very friendly owner with lots of knowledge. Prices are very reasonable. It was a very pleasurable experience.
Not a good store, owner lied and said open 7days a week..waisted my time..go to pet smart!
I go there all the time the owner is a great friendly guy! Great atnosphere
