I frequent the place. Most notable for their saltwater exotic selection. I've seen them mentioned over and over on saltwater forums. They get some real oddball highly desirable salt stuff in.
The good and bad for the freshwater:
The owner has spoken of plants/plant orders for quite some time...initially he had around 10 tanks set to be plant tanks. This has been reduced to... 1? 2? I have seen one come in. very sickly plants, 0 variety. very quickly get COVERED in algae, and then it sits and rots.
Can not come even close to comparing with Tropical Isle in Framingham. Heck, cant compete with petco (at least petco has NICE javafern). Don't hold your breath for the plants guys. Though dont get me wrong, if they start stocking, I'll start coming more.
The 'used' stuff they sell is priced just silly. You can get it online brand new for less, including shipping. I'm not kidding, I actually checked.
They DO carry seachem ferts/products though. Its the only place around that does to my knowledge. They also have a great selection of frozen foods, and its nice high quality frozen food. They also have a great selection of canister repair/upgrades. Some for prices less then online! They do co2 exchanges, but airgas in auburn will fill while you wait for less.
ALSO! they will purchase healthy fish for store credit! Its a decent pricing, and you know your unwanted/to big/mean fishy has another chance coming. Decent fish selection...Tropical Isle wins on that front as well though...
All in all, great convenience store for supplies in freshwater planted tanks. Not for plants.
