They have really nice adoption service for cats and dogs. First off it’s mostly boutique pet store. If you want sometime unique or fun and of high quality. It’s a great place. The staff was very nice and extremely knowledgeable about animals and how to keep them healthy.

Best selection, Chicago prices

Amazing selection of hard-to-find fish and corals. Of course, the price that goes with it will drop your jaw, but if you are well off then no worries. I'd check out Midwest Coral Farms if you like reef stuff. Its way cheaper and larger, not too far of a drive. Still a solid store, and one of the originals in the area too.

Good shop for fish supplies

Great staff - very clean and a nice variety of aquariums. It looks like they have a couple dozen tanks and the selection is top notch. I really like this shop for all the little things you need to take care of your tanks. Its not a huge store but they do a lot with a small space. Impressed at every turn
