Went yesterday after work, drove an hour and they were closed... Had a paper sign on the door saying they were out for an install until 6pm. I would think that they have at least one employee to keep the store open. So I suggest call before you make the journey all the way there. I might go back this weekend , the curiosity of an ADA store is too much for me to pass up

Is there any way I could order a 60-f from you? I'm not concerned with the glass quality (ADA vs Do!Aqua). I'm in NC and shipping from Ca is $50!

Just visited this store on Saturday. Very nice setup, and very friendly and helpful! They had plants that I was looking for at a very good price. I will definitely be heading back!

Does anyone who has been there think it is worth the trip from the philly area? I want to go but I do not want to wast money/time if it is not as great as it sounds.

I'm also in the Philly area in South Jersey. It would take a long time to get up there.

I was probably their first customer, even before they opened on september 1st. Nice little store, great friendly owner, I am excited to know that we finally have a ADA store in the neighborhood. I think they close on Sunday .

Hmmmm......that's a tough one. The store is small, but super nice. Not your typical fish store by any means. If you are looking for fish, they basically stock a few typical species, like guppies. The plant selection is good, just not sure it's good enough to warrant a drive that long. Don't get me wrong, I like the place and totally support the business. That hike, for me anyway, would have to have a huge store at the end of it that stocks 200 species of fish and plants.
