Davey Jones Locker is an incredible place for anyone who loves keeping fish, and right from the moment you walk in the door you know you've come to the right place. The first thing you see is a pair of enormous display tanks, fully decorated and stocked with big, healthy fish. Then the friendly and helpful staff are obviously interested in the hobby, not just in making a buck. These people love fish just as much as we do, and they clearly take well-deserved pride in their shop. They have dozens and dozens of large display tanks, all decorated and looking good enough to be in anyone's living room, and all the fish we saw were beautiful and healthy. The back room has several salt water tanks, and the amazing displays of living rock, corals, marine fish, and various reef creatures is worth the drive to see even if you're not considering a tank of your own. Especially favorites like the clown fish and lion fish. The store is kept up far better than the other small shops and chain stores we've been to, and the staff knows how to offer enough help without being pushy. They understand that first-time visitors need time to walk around and take it all in before they can even think about making any purchases. We went to shop for a 55 gallon tank to replace our 29 at home, and were expecting to have to compare prices and brands and put together the components ourselves, but instead they took us in the office, put together a very nice package with quality components at a terrific price and we're picking it up in 2 days! We couldn't have had a better experience, and we'll be recommending this shop to everyone! Visit their website at albanyfish dot com and see what we're talking about. Then take a drive and see for yourself!
Pros: Amazing effort into appearance/upkeep, great selection, helpful friendly staff
Cons: limited parking
