Today's Pet in Columbia

I figured I would mention this place. I have not seen anything recent on it.

They do not have the kind of selection house of tropics does, but then again this is an all around pet store.

I have to say though, the fish people were knowledgeable and they had a good selection of plants for a decent price.

I went there to check the place out because the petsmart/petco plant selection around me is bad. Today's Pet grows in their tanks and the plants all looked healthy.

They offered a lot of products as well but I did not have much time because my daughter kept chasing the house bunny around. So I focused on plants mainly.

Anyone else had a good/bad experience with this place?

This was the store that used to be in the columbia mall, with all of the puppies.

They still have the puppies. but a decent fish section.

I agree with you now. I must have been there after a shipment. I went in 2 weeks ago and the plant selection was not very good. Some looked just bad. Fish population was ok but plants were a letdown.

Their prices for equipment are very high, so no purchases like that from there either.

I wound up heading to house of tropicals for some spare driftwood/ludwigia red. Prices were comparable but overall less at HoT.

I still think it is a good store for people that can't make it to HoT.

The puppy thing, well this was a mall store in a past life. So I guess they stuck with that. I would never buy a puppy, all of mine have been pound pups....well dogs!

Yeah I go to HoT probably too much for my own good. A while back they had a huge selection of some really fantastic driftwood. Mopani and spiderwood and some of them were really large pieces. Over all I like HoT, although they have a lot of BBA in their tanks.

Well that's just like.........your opinion man.
