I have been in the aquarium game for 25 yrs a least.I have even seen this shop change hands a few times and can say it is the best it has ever been. They Cater to the ethusiast freshwater, and marine hobbiest . If you want angel fish in a big box store, they might be more to your liking. Those of us that have a passion for the hobby thank god for a shop like this.

Selection is pretty basic, angelfish were my goal but they only sell common varieties and refuse to order any (even upon payment up front). They knew of a lady who bred them locally but refused to give me her name or order any fish for me.I then tried to order some plants, they told me they would call me 6 different times and each time they completely blew me off. No apologies, no offers to make it right, just a "deal with it or go else where" kinda mentality. I like to build a relation with my LFS but this store is not the place to do this.I will say they do have healthy fish, I did get some basic short fin angels to cycle my tank and none were sick. They even dose their tanks to prevent any sickness which is really cool.I wont be doing business with them anymore but if you don't want petsmart's "50% death rate" and don't mind paying an extra dollar or two a fish then they will work.
