I just got back into raising fish after a 25 year absence, so I wasn't up to speed on where the good stores were.
I found Best Pets and decided that the prior reviews looked favorable enough to give it a try.
I wasn't disappointed. I picked up 4 small Jack Dempsey's for $2.99 each that were all very healthy and active. The store's employees were very friendly and helpful, especially the blond girl that I had chasing particular fish around the tank for me.

So I decided to check this place out because I moved to the area a couple years ago. It's a good store. They got a general variety of animals, reptiles, fish ect. The staff was also friendly and knowledgeable. The guy with the tattoos aka Nate, really knows his stuff. So I find that a big plus. I got used to going to the big stores like petco, even meijer at times for fish ect. Finding out that the big stores filter there tanks with one system makes sense because when I would get ...view morea fish from these places, all my fish would soon die. One diseased fish spread through multiple tanks....ya no good. Happened to me twice. The smaller stores use individual filter systems. The blond girl at the desk, Tess was also very nice and quick to help. You may pay a couple bucks more than the big chains but, personally i would rather have someone who is passionate about their job, has a wide range of knowledge helping me, answering my questions, even making suggestions of ways to help certain issues. Hek the guy told me he could order me a certain fish I was looking for. Its nice to know good customer service still exists.view less
I bought a fish from this store and the fish has some disease it killed 4 of my angel fish and other fish I had...the smell in the store and what they told me after I bought the fish was that the water being cloudy was ok... well it wasn't the fish killed my fish.. I have had my tank almost 10 years and no problems from pet vender or greenwoods when I bought fish from them I saw something I wanted and they had it never again I am in the process of contacting the city about this store.....view more.view less
There is a big variety of products for animals, but isn't a big variety of fish (at least when I was there) When you walk in, it also has a weird smell--like fish food. I know they are a pet store, but you don't go in Petco and come out stinking.
Best Pets is one of the best pet stores out there, there satff is always friendly and very helpful. I have purchased several fish, fish supplies and reptiles suplies there. Would recommend this store to everyone
We have been shopping in this store for 14 years. Everyone working here is great. The animals, fish are treated well. This is the best pet store just like the name states. Honest, sincere, intelligent owner Mike and his staff. They answer every question about animals. Have never been rude and are sometimes very clever and funny! We love this store.
