Decent variety of both fresh and saltwater livestock, the staff is knowledgeable and polite. Prices for chemicals, media etc are of course a bit higher than online but very reasonable prices for natural decor and livestock. All the fish look very healthy and they keep their quarantine tanks right out front with signs stating why the fish are under quarantine and when they anticipate them to be available. My husband and I appreciate the store's transparency :)

This store is a godsend! Non chain store, owned by a guy who is real passionate! The knowledge he has is such a help, to both new and experienced hobbiests!

They have a insane amount of stock, able to get in nearly what ever you want, does deals, does trade in for fish too :)

Also can hook you up with custom pine tanks :)

Couldn’t recommend any more!
