They are spectacular. Have you had an opportunity to actually go there? It is utterly amazing. Whats more amazing is that this is in their backyard.

Lots of flake food choices too. My girlfriend found it a while ago, and likewise both of us have been nothing but pleased with their service.

I bought six Neolamprologus brevis juviniles from them and they are now big and healthy. I have two pairs, one actively breeding, three babies that grew up from good parental care. I use their prime flakes with both my brevis and angels. It encourages good color and growth, and is homemade.

They are helpful, clean, and their stock is highly impressive.

Thiers a bunch of petstores in the area.

Ocean and Seas: 10 1/2 mile rd. and Gratiot in Roseville. Salt and fresh water. Decent selection of fish with a few plants.

Greenwoods: 9 mile rd. between Gratiot and Schenier in Eastpoint. Not to many fish but a good place for equipment.

Tropical Treasurs: South of 15 mile rd on Gratiot in Clinton twp. Ok selection of fish with plants.

Aquatic Discoveries: Located in the shopping center at 15 mile rd. and Ryan. Equipment is over priced but good selection of everything.

Kees Aquarium: Shopping center at 23 mile rd and Van Dyke. Expensive equipment but good selection of fish and plants.

Anchorbay Aquarium: South of 23 mile rd just past Wet Thumb. You'll have to look it up in the phone book for directions. Great selection of fish and plants. One of my favorite pet shops. Clean and healthy facility.

The Aquarium Shop: Main st. just south of 11 mile rd in Royal Oak. Great selection of african cichlids.

The Pet Station: Telegraph Just north of I-94 in Dearborn. Great selection of fish.

Cichlid Store: Ford rd in Garden city. Huge selection of cichlids and some (SA dwarfs) and cool drift wood.
