LFS--Petown in Lake Forest (SoCal--Orange County)

I've been to Petown ~5 times now, and have bought several items from them (26-gallon acrylic aquarium, plants, assorted parts, Eco-Complete x 2, etc.) ... in my opinion:

-Very well-staffed with some knowledgable folks
-Owners (2 brothers) usually on-site
-Nice selection of healthy fish and some inverts (no Cherry Shrimp )
-Nice selection of "common" freshwater plants
-Will attempt to order more "exotic" freshwater plants if requested
-Petown keeps at least 2 planted tanks--not overly fancy, but nice to see
-Prices not out of line
-Great hours--open to 9 PM!

-Not much in the way of dry goods selection

I like Petown a lot, but I have been cursed with having had some people that are not good at catching fish. Also they have jerked me around with trade-ins before....so now I give my plants away free over the internet or aquabid them instead of taking them there.

Petown is great

I really like petown. Clean tanks, great freshwater selection, good prices, always well staffed.

They have really nice and cheap open stands, their tank prices are great, and they will try to special order fish. The best bet in orange county that i have found (and I looked).
