Pullman here. The only quality place in the Palouse is Pets Are People Too in Moscow. I've been to the three selections looking at saltwater and fresh along with knowledgeable staff and supplies. This is just out of my 3 years of experience at the various shops.

Hello Sean151! Thanks for that info. Barnacle Bills is getting out of the fish business, so we do have a limited selection. I'm going to have to check out Aquarium Solutions in Spokane then!

In Spokane here....

Styxx, Aquarium Solutions up here in Spokane is worth checking out. Barbie has pretty good assortment of fish you don't see in the chain pet shops and also gets plant trimmings from a local hobbyist. If there is something you really wanted she would probably try to order it in (never have asked so don't take my word). Also in the area is NW seed and pet, The one on sprague has the better aquatics section of the two.

I am pretty heart broken about Barnacle bills leaving fish behind. I'm not a huge fan of pets are people because I feel like they're in between lfs and petco and they treat their fish as such. PLUS the fish guy I always run into is pretty pretentious.

I would love to do a Eastern Washington meet up

Oh man, that one guy with the long hair? I have a laundry list of BS he's tried to pedal on me, with my personal favorites being "Excel grows plants 60% better than (API CO2 Boost). Just Gluteraldehyde will actual grow brown algae", "You will need at least 4 T5HO bulbs on your tank to grow high light species (referring at the time to L. Cuba and Repens)", "Two T5HO is not enough to grow alternanthera", and my all time favorite, "I'm actually a world renown aquascaper" (his exact words, I kid you not).


A meetup would be pretty rocking.

EWU student here, living in Spokane.

Thanks so much for the names of Aquarium Solutions, and Guppy Tales. Honestly I've had trouble finding a fish store around here, Google has failed me and I've had to resort to using Petsmart twice.

I wonder what is wrong with Google's profiling software that these stores don't show up when you search for "pet store" "fish store" etc... I hope we can change that!

Yeah, Barbie is awesome, I refuse to buy fish anywhere else.

When I can no more stir my soul to move, and life is but the ashes of a fire
When I can but remember that my heart once used to live and love, long and aspire
Oh, be thou then the first, the one thou art, be thou the calling, before all answering love
And in me wake hope, fear, boundless desire.
