If you want a good selection of plants, you should check out Animal Ark. they are located in orem 33W. center str. they always tend to have new and interesting variety

My opinion on stores

For plants I really like Animal Ark in Orem like mentioned above. I also work at Petsmart and will never buy plants there again. And I am limited on what fish I want to get there just because we've had the same ones forever and I get bored with them.

I really like Fish-4-U because the owner is ridiculously intelligent and knowledgeable about almost everything. That's where I went first when I got started with my first planted tank last year.

I haven't been to The Aquarium but I might be going today. I want to see what they know about plants and what they have.

Animal Ark in American Fork sucks! The employee's barely know anything.

I'm not into Salt Water yet but Aquatica and Reef Runners are pretty awesome. I love going in there just to look around. I also get moss from Aquatica and my Reverse Osmosis water for my tanks.

That's my opinion on stores here. I haven't ever visited others.

Those

This needs an update. If you are going for Cichlids you definitely go to the Fishhub, Allred cichlids, TropicalFishWholesale and if you really want some good tanganyika Cichlids at wholesale price you go to Bob Allen in Salem if you know anything about Tanganyika fish. If you don't know Bob then you're probably out of the loop.

Keep your sleeves wet!

I guess its all in what you want. For fresh water I would recommend Bird world in Bountiful.
For salt it would be Aquatic Dreams in Clearfield!

The Fish Hub is awesome.

Animal Ark in Orem has an incredible plant and small fish selection.

Bob Allen in Salem has some hidden gems in his warehouse.

There was a fish store up here in Logan called Dan the Fish Man. Unfortunately, he closed up shop and moved to Tremonton. Any ideas where his store is? I never got an address and his facebook page hasn't been updated in forever.

Aquatica is gone, another store came and went in its place called Exotic Reef. Reef Runners is still here in Orem and has good marine selection. Animal Ark in Orem has good stuff. They also started carrying Fennix LED fixtures. The owner of Aquatica started a new shop on the west side of the freeway off of Center Street, called Aquarium Evolution, another marine shop. Those are the shops that I am aware of in the Orem area.

Just continuing to update this........Exotic Reef closed. Now in the Orem area the best place by far is Animal Ark, they carry the new Finnex Planted Plus. They always have a display tank that look awesome! I could spend a lot of money there.
To edit my previous post......the store just west of the freeway on Center Street is called Aquatic Evolution, not Aquarium...(sorry about that) but they are a marine only shop.

All the stores

I just started going to Fish-4-U and it is the most amazing fish store I have ever been to! I am joyed by their huge selection of fw fish and plants.

Mark's Ark is pretty run down and all, but it does have some fish for monster keepers.

The Petco on Redwood road and 72nd S is probably one of the best chain fish stores around.

The place with the pink dinosaur out front has a pretty dece selection.

Tropical Fish Wholesale has a huge warehouse full of fish and a new retail floor coming soon [but not soon enough].

it's buisness time!!!!
