This place is AWESOME!!! It is the cleanest fish store in San Antonio. All of the fish are kept in excellent conditions and the variety is pretty cool too. The large tessalata eel and the port jackson shark were my favorite. There coral tank was first class with the coolest LED lighting I have ever seen. All the people who work there are extremely knowledgeable and really care about helping you have a good experience. They take time to tell you what it is you need to know about setting up your saltwater tank and walk you through the process, They even have come out to make sure my tank was correct when I've had problems and did not charge me for the help when I had the set the filtration up wrong. All in all this is a great store with reasonable prices and is well stocked with everything I need.
I've been shopping local aquarium shops since 2005. I'll have to admit that Aquarium Designs is my favorite "go to" place. The product selection is great and ranges from entry level to advanced hobbyist. Large selection of livestock! Wide range of anything you would want for your tank. Mainly saltwater btw. Very organized and clean! Helpful and experienced staff. If you are interested in starting a saltwater aquarium, make this one of your stops!
Fintique offers some of the best deals on quality fish in the city. I have taken my kids into the store and have kept them under control and under my watch. If I wanted them to run, I will take them to a park. Parents shouldn't blame a store for expecting them to parent their kids. In the same token, Yellow Pages shouldn't allow a low rating to a store due only to their policy to not allow parents to not parent.
