The shop is run by active hobbyists so they know their stuff. I was about to buy some live plants for my tank until they informed me that the fish I keep would just tear them up. I was about to purchase an exotic fish when they pointed out that it was sick and I shouldn't introduce it to my tank. They stock only the fish and reptiles they have experience with and can support. They're one of the few remaining places that sell hand picked crickets and the feeders look healthy.
