I used to support this business, but I can't any longer. I will see to it that everyone I know shops elsewhere or at least knows how bad this place has gotten. The owner has the same guy (my boyfriend) slaving away every single day. He works 930 to 7 Monday through Saturday, and 12 to 5 Sunday. He gets one day off a week that he has to ask for, and he might not even get it then. I'm keeping this strictly business related, even though I have personal issues with the owner and his wife. The animals are not well kept, which is nearly impossible with one guy doing it all. They have the caiman which is obviously in a small tank, and they know that. The place is filthy, and I dont think it's been cleaned thoroughly since they've been there. It's understandable for it to be messy, because its a pet shop. But it's disgusting in there. I Would go help if I knew it would change things. I've helped before, but nothing has changed. I hope they can get it clean, or just shut the whole place down.



I was in here recently and will NEVER step foot back in this store, The conditions of the animal cages were horrible and very few of the needs are actually being met for many of the reptiles. Also, the worst part is there is a caiman in a tank that's way too small for it to even turn around. And for them to claim it is a rescue is flat out appalling, I think it needs rescued again, It's basking spot isn't even big enough to get it's entire body out of the tank. Also, i didn't see a UVB lamb. The fish tanks were disgusting I would be afraid of buying any thing from this store, the poor rats were about over heated and there is a lack of ventilation in their cages it's just pitiful and a sorry excuse for a pet store, needs a complete overhaul or shut down


Aquarium & imports inc.

Clean healthy animals! Anyone saying different doesn't know much! Jim is a zoologist and marine biologist! He was a elephant trainer at ashvillees nature center. And is in the store 5 day's a week! Animals that are neglected and sick are always welcomed! Rats and mice are in every week, NEW! Reptiles and fish cleaned daily and have plenty of room. If you read differently, ask! They will give you the correct information and a reason why! Try going to the big box stores! GOTTA TELL YOU THAT THEY DON'T TREAT THERE ANIMALS! THEY DUMP AND KILL AND START OVER! !! SMALL BUSINESS OWNER FOR 20 YEARS! GOT TO MEAN SOMETHING! You can knock the store cosmetically. But for 1 man i am impressed!



Great store, Jim has a wealth of knowledge about everything to do with aquariums. Figured out my problem on the phone and was 100% correct. Tested my water for free and bartered for some items I needed. I would recommend this business to anyone. I will purchase his water for my tank no matter the cost. Thanks Jim for all your help! Customer for life, Paul


wonderful experience!

Cheaper then chain stores! Much more knowledge then anyone in the area! Everything from fish, reptiles, Bird's, feeders, Crickets, mice, everything! Best store around!

Someone is jealous

This store has the healthiest fish I have ever seen. Great selection. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff.


not wnc!

no longer wnc ! Aquarium & Imports Inc.! all association and bad reviews should be re considered! New look New management !



This is an awesome pet store...the best place to get a wide variety of pets and the supplies that you need. This is a professional setup and has a lot of knowledge he freely shares with the public. I do agree that the store is a bit dusty and is a bit smelling like a thousand pet live there! C'mon, where is reason? Of COURSE it will smell like pets and pet foods...I don't mind those smells at all. THIS is an AWESOME PET STORE!


Horrible animal conditions, fi...

Horrible animal conditions, fish that live in water with nitrate readings that are so high they aren't measurable and improper pH and salt levels. The place smells like it looks. Check the expiration dates on anything you buy, as you will see from the layer of filth on them, they have been there for years. When they do have fish they die in-store within days, or some unlucky person buys them and they die at home, and no return policy to speak of. By reptiles there very carefully, as they most all have mites, are starved, and kept in horrible conditions. Take a stroll into their small animal section and you will see mice eating each other, rabbits without food or water and feces all over the place. My advise is to take your hard earned money else where, and don't support this store what so ever. Oh and if you ever want to speak with the owner, Ha good luck he's never around and never gets back to you. If there is ever a store that needs to be shutdown, they are the poster child.

Shut down this place!!

I thought I would be sick when I saw the the Speckeled Caimen ( alligator) in a tank at the front door!! Owner claims to be an expert in building animal habitat's. Are you kidding!! This business needs to be closed! I only hope to find a way to get these animals a home they deserve. I would like to put the owner in a tank for 10 years as this animal has been!! There are other animals in this building as well shame on this business owner!!
