For me, they are THE saltwater fish store in the GNO area. (I default to 50 Fathoms for freshwater and cichlids)

If you can make it here, it's SO worth it. Anything that's important we buy from either here or 50 Fathoms.
They are also very willing to special order fish for you.

Honky Magoo Nice. Im not usually in Kenner, but Ill swin by next time I am. Im always interested in checking out plant stock.. And a local source for some less carried items is always nice.

hewhorocks They have a sign "before you buy online, try us." I usually laugh at this sort of thing but figured "why not?" I mentioned a substrate that they didnt have in stock and gave the price that online offered it (I included shipping cost to be fair.) Took them about 10 min of calling and they matched the price. Cant complain about that! Great service, knowledgable staff, will special order stuff for you and very attractive plant selections. Too bad they make most of their money on the salties or no doubt theyd have an epic freshwater display tank for us to droll over.

bluecheese +1 on the Aquatic Specialties. The staff is knowlegable, helpful, and friendly. Their tanks are the cleanest I have seen in the area. Even if they are out of your way, it is worth it to drive there. I live in Metairie and go out of my way to get my plants and fish there instead of going to closer lfs or even the more convenient large chain pet stores.

Hi!

So tell me more about this place Aquatic Specialists are they still in business since Katrina any new places open or still operating? I'm wondering b/c being in Baton Rouge, there isn't that many options for hobbyists...

Anyone in the New Orleans area SHOULD stop at this great lfs. They had the best looking and upkept tanks I've seen. Plenty of plant and fish species. 3 things that caught my eye were that they had many plant species not seen in lfs around here, a good selection of beautiful discus, and they were the only place down here I've found that had both cherry, and amano shrimp. The price on them wasn't bad at 4.99 for cherries, and 2.99 for amanos. They had a couple of different shrimp species in other tanks but once I saw the cherries I had to get them into my tank. They are located on Williams 1 block past Esplanade Mall on the corner of Williams and 33rd street.
