This is a great fish store, with a lot of promise. The selection of fresh and saltwater stock is huge for a store this size. They even carry some amphibians as well. The staff is helpful and friendly, with one exception . . . The "Fish keeper". This guy is very knowledgeable, but he prefers to spend his time with the fish, not people. He does a great job of keeping the tanks and livestock in good condition, but stay clear of him if you can! The other employees will be glad to help you with whatever you need. If there is a question they can't answer, they will steer you in the right direction to find it, rather than give you bad advice. You can expect to find a broad range of live, frozen, and dried foods. There is a small variety of aquatic plants, tank ornaments and books. The normal assortment of hardware, tanks, regular and specialty lights, all types of filters, gadgets and medications. Then there is the better than average variety of pond supplies, equipment, and pumps. They even have one indoor pond stocked with live Koi. They carry bulk quantities of such things as plain salt, (80lb bag) and sea salt in large quantities to save you money. After a full year, involving many trips to this store, I've found the prices to be better than average, or equal to other stores on most items. In all, this is a well rounded store that is worth a trip for the experienced aquarist looking for something a bit different. Just don't expect anyone to coddle you through every purchase. This is a busy place, better suited to people who already have a good basic knowledge of fish keeping. They'll help you when they have time, but don't expect to get personal attention on every sale. Do your homework before you go! more
