Aquatic wildlife manchester

I am about a half hour from aquatic wildlife in Manchester. Is it worth the ride up there?

Soemtimes they are. Great selection, and if you join their email list, they'll send out email deals.

Plants seemed reasonable prices when you compare with online plants plus shipping. Fish are over priced along with other dry goods.

Im in there at least once a week. Its true, they are over priced, however the store is awesome and they have alot of fish and products.

Also, they aren't as overpriced as Wet Pets in Vernon, which is just down the road a ways. Honestly, you can find some good deals there sometimes, and other times its like "this is wayyyyy too much money." For instance I got my API Master Test Kit there and it was $3 cheaper than Petco or Super Pet in East Hartford.

I like this store, but yes, it would be great if prices were cheaper...

Hey there guys. I was just talking to somebody in the store about this the other day. Our prices at AW are higher because we pay a little extra for healthier, better looking stock.
It is true that we get to know our regulars. I've only been there a couple months ( though I've shopped there for years), and already I have a couple folks who go to me when they come in.
