Animal House in Lexington

Just wanted to let you Lexington guys know that Animal House got in a big shipment of rainbows and other fish. They got in herbertaxlerodis, emeralds and Milleniums. They also got in a bunch of big emerald tetras, some killer looking German rams and some huge marble angels. I bought a dozen Milleniums (for several tanks) and am thinking about getting more.

Hey, is this a good store? I might be willing to drive half an hour for a really good shop!

I've recently started shopping there and have been very happy. I bought some stone there and most recently a school of White Clouds. I found the tanks to be clean and well maintained. The fish were all healthy and are doing well in my tank.

I recommend Animal House without any reservations.

I love Animal house! I live in Lex and WON'T buy livestock anywhere else. Never been sold a sick fish or given bad advice. The owners (who are not rich) have put me off of a sale for the betterment of my tank!. Now if that's not professional y'all I don't know what is. They get a bad rap on yelp, I think this is because they tend to hover around you while you are in there. They are not big box store PR specialists, They are hobbyists like you and me living the dream of owning a store. If you live in the area and haven't been do yourself a favor and check it out. (right next to Kroger on Richmond road has been for over 20 years). If you find the hovering uncomfortable strike up a conversation they really are a nice family. I know this sounds like a sales pitch guys and I may be rambling. I just love this store, Love the owners, and what to see this place grow.
