jester56 I went to Delta Pet and picked up a few things. Honestly, I didn't see much that lit my bulb. It seems to be an organized mess. And their prices leave a little to be desired... Never been to Pets Plus, but may have to make the drive.

Craw Chief On the Northshore, it's just tough. I'm from Slidell and have always appreciated the service at Pets Plus and Delta Pet. I can't speak for the stocking as I'm only interested in one type of creature.

But as far as southeast Louisiana goes, it seems like if you want a good selection of stock, you need to go south of the lake. You won't find good service in Baton Rouge, that's for sure.

jester56 FWIW, there is now a Catholic Church where Mr. Fish was. I wish there was a well stocked and equipped aquaria store in the Mandeville-Covington area. While Petsmart has bits and pieces, they fall far short on ferts and plants. I won't even mention livestock. I've travelled up to Albany and Hammond on the promise of well stocked stores. But no such luck. So there's Amazon...

Craw Chief Hey Cobra! Thanks! Yeah I couldn't believe when that place closed. My in-laws live in Mandeville, so I pass by the old building all the time and always reminisce.

DarkCobra Hey Craw Chief, I don't know what happened to Mr. Fish, but I just wanted to say hey and glad to see you here.

This is probably a shot in the dark because this thread is so old, but can you say why they closed? I loved going to that place as a kid....

black_dragon_i Mr. Fish is really just a toy to the owner which is why the stock is so light. I am not saying that he does not care about his store, as you have seen it is on a corporate worthy size scale and VERY clean. Its point though is not so much to make money as just to be able to make some people happy and generate enough flow to keep it open.

I have never seen much rare anything there because of it, but sometimes they do and also if you shop long enough may talk them into ordering if available. I used to buy most of my animals from there when I lived in Mandeville so I recommend it, I actually replicated their pond on a slightly smaller scale at my parents because I was so impressed with it.

Anthony Yep you just take Causeway south, there's a street that follow right alongside Causeway maybe 15" over, hard to explain. It's on that street not directly on Causeway but it is visible from Causeway on the righthand side. Yellow Causeway Pets sign, it's right next to a car lot. It is the best I've found so far. I have seen some other shops with decent selection, but they were all poorly maintained. Incomatible species(Discus and Goldfish???), even seen one store where in every tank the currents were so strong that the fish looked like they were trying to swim upstream, and had a lot of diseased and dead fish in all tanks. C. Pets is very well run and have yet to see a diseased tank there.

GulfCoastAquarian I just talked to a guy here at work that lived in Metarie for 20 years. He said it's really easy to find Causeway Pets. I posted directions in the Causeway Pets Thread
You basically take exit 228 off of the 610, head south for a mile on Causeway Blvd and it's on the right. He said you might need to take 48th st down to Frontage Rd since he wasn't sure if you would be able to get to the pet store right from the Causeway.
Anthony, does that sound about right?

CarlaB I also live in Gulfport, well North of there in Saucier. Would you please give directions to Causeway Pets coming from Slidell on I12? Have you found any places in New Orleans with a fair selection of plants/fresh water supplies? We certainly don't have any decent places here in MS and I find myself getting most of my plants etc off internet.
02-18-2005 01:37 PM
GulfCoastAquarian Argh, bummer they didn't have any shrimp. It is a nice store, but I also found it to be somewhat lightly stocked. I mean, it's nice that they can spread their livestock out over a greater area, but a bigger selection sure would be nice.

I've heard Causeway Pets is pretty nice. Never been, though. I'll have to see what our plans are. If we are going to stop by the fish store on the way to dinner in New Orleans, we'll probably come from Slidell. If it is on the way back, we'll probably take the Causeway. Think you could email me some quick directions from either side?

Anthony Sorry G. Coast, but no go on the shrimp. They didn't have any. I asked an employee and he said sometime they get some but he hasn't seen any on order for a long time. Very big store, but I though for that size it would have a better selection(hardly and plants). Which way are you taking to come down here, through Slidell or the Causeway? Causeway Pets is no more than 10 minutes from the bridge just over both overpasses, and past a couple of red lights on the right hand side(Yellow Sign) They usually get fish and plant shipments on Fridays. It's a nice little shop.
