After trying to stop in on 2 different occasions, only to find it closed during posted open hours, I decided to give this place another shot, and happened to drive by on a day when the front door was standing open. Prepare yourself- the space is tiny and cramped and you could barely see into any of the tanks due to severe green algae coating every pane of glass. Dont expect any kind of supplies or accessories or anything other than Freshwater species. When you first look in, it looks like a huge turn-off... BUT give this place a chance. You will be pleasantly surprised. Even though the murky tanks will look scary at first, all fish are healthy and active. I have never once been in a LFS before where I didnt spot at least 1 or more sickly or floating dead fish. Not a single ill, lingering specimen here! All fish are locally bred, so no chance of fish stressed out from shipping from the other side of the planet. Owner is extremely knowledgeable and a wealth of information. He will happily feed the fish in front of you, and all fish were active and eating like pigs. A healthy appetite is the sign of healthy fish, and most LFSs Ive shopped from dont offer to show you their stock feeding. So this is an LFS confident in the health and happiness of their fish. Great prices, and the owner is more than willing to dash them if you feel something is out of your range. He also readily offers up his personal cell number to anyone needing help. I went with a good friend and I purchased a paradise gourami, and she bought about 7 of varying species. One of hers died about a day after the purchase, but all others have been healthy for weeks now since purchase. My gourami is healthy, active, and a food hog. TL;DR .... Looks may be deceiving, but stock is healthy and well-priced and locally bred. Owner is insightful and helpful. If you are concerned about any of the stock spreading disease to your established tanks- you should be quarantining before adding them to your tanks, as you should be doing with ANY new livestock before you add it to your tanks.
Nice guy who really knows his fish and gives a ton of advice. He really cares/knows about the fish, which you dont get at any of the other chain (and even local) shops. He raises/breeds a lot of his own fish (just about every tank in the place is loaded with Fry (baby fish), which is the sign of a good healthy tank (fish dont breed in bad tanks), or gets them from customers and friends he services (so good locally produced fish, not farm/mill bred). Tiny place, but great to find plants and some really nice Tropical Fish, plus a ton of advice.
Give this fish store a chance. Its hard to find as its on the side of the car wash but the owner is incredibly knowledgeable and gives you a wealth of information about any questions you may have. His fish and plants are happy and healthy and he stands behind his sales. If you have a problem with anything you buy from him, just take it back and he will replace it, no questions asked. I highly recommend this store.
Ridiculous, called ahead of time tp check stock then drove across town with a baby in the heat, the sign says open owner said hed be there then arrive to find his word is about as worthless as they come, talked to a friend said most his stock is sickly and spreads desease to your tank, your much better off staying aqay from this place
