The most God-awful pet store I've ever been in, hands down. Rude employees, nasty fish tanks with dead fish and boy, they were sure proud o...

Spiller Pets Too 3/24/2006

This pet store has many items that you will find in other pet stores, but, I find they cannot compete with the prices of the newer pet stores that have opened. They are a little pricey, but they do have some higher quality items. They DO have more, in the way of cages however, so, if you need a good cage for your caged pet, this is a great place to go. They also have a huge selection of fish. They'll also carry pets like lizards, ferrets, snakes, etc. The people who own it, they are nice.They do seem to care for the animals, because before you leave with one they tell you what you need to do to care for it and what you may need to care for it. Other pet shops I have been to (feed mice or hamsters) just give you the "pet" and take your money. They aren't like that here. ***To update this review*** I came back to edit this review to add in more info. I had a good experience there recently. I went in to buy a hamster because I was having no luck with PetSuppliesPlus (wet tail...days after purchase). I asked the nice woman who is there if she had any males (*they're cleaner*). She said yes, and knew right where they were. That may not sound like a big deal, but, I have went to *another* pet store and the person helping me pick out one didn't even know how to sex them! I sexed (distinguished male from female) it myself. I asked her if I could possibly get one that is older because I was afraid of it getting wet tail. She had no issues with that, and explained how the hamsters get wet tail. The way she expressed it makes me believe that she is cautious of that and it rarely happens. (That, and I just *know* she cares about these animals.) She then found a male for me (and showed me to confirm approval), and then brought him to me to show me what a "healthy" dry tail should look like, on that hamster. (This kind of help isn't the norm for me in local pet stores, is why I am praising her here). After the hamster (whom we call Hopi) was boxed in his carrier, she gave me pointers. She asked what kind of food I give them. I told her, and she said , "Okay, that's what we give them." (Never ever had anyone, besides a breeder, selling pets expressed concern about a dramatic diet change for them, to me until now.) I had informed her that I just had one die of wet tail, and she asked me if I clean the cages. Yes, I do and told her so. She said "Good" (which is an expression of concern for this hamster to contract it) and then gave me a tip to clean it something like Clorox before putting him in (so it would kill the bacteria). As long as I can remember (for, this place was the only pet store in town once upon a time. Been there for many moons.) , this has always been the norm here. Be it the pets or their supplies, they are knowledgeable about the items they sell. You will only find that at this pet store in Tuscaloosa. more

Cheap fish! 8/16/2005

I know that most students at UA live in dorms and the only pets allowed are fish, so maybe you should go here and get some. They have other pets but I mainly buy fish here. Sometimes you have to look around to find what you need because there are a few dead fish here and there but mostly the shop is kept clean and not stinky like some pet shops and the owners are friendly. They have about the same prices on fish as the big stores, maybe slightly more expensive but come take a look for yourself. more

Great local pet store 8/11/2005

This store has been around for ever. They sell pets and pet supplies. They used to be in a tiny location in the mall, but now they have a great big store on 15th street. They have tons of stuff for fish, reptiles and birds, and your common cat and dog stuff too. Their prices are competitive also. more
