New Store
Is anybody going to go to this new store that is opening in Timonium, Md. It is called CTE Aquatics and they are planning to open in early September. So far the progress is looking really good and it looks very well organized. They have a facebook page if you want to check it out. Finally another store after the closings of some of the best stores in this area. I can not wait! :bounce::icon_bigg

It will be nice to have some more competition for the other stores. They have a website up too but a lot of it is still under construction.

I'd thought they were just going to do saltwater, but I see on their facebook page that they will be doing freshwater as well. I can't wait for them to open!

let us know if it ends up being a decent store. Too far to drive unless its worth it.

Your closer than I am.

I've been waiting for this place to open. After Exotic Aquatics closed, I have been going to HOT when I have the extra time for a trip but it has been mostly petco and petsmart for for me. Timonium is much easier for me to get to than Glen Burnie.

Yeah Exotic Aquatics was my favorite store even though I had only been going there 4 or 5 months before they closed. It was a lot like one of my other favorite stores called Scales Tropical Fish Warehouse which closed down a few years ago. Maryland has always had better stores but now there are a lot less good stores making it hard to find decent fish.

Website said 9/14 for marine only freshwater fish will come in at the end of the month

I stoped by on Saturday to check this store out. Like they said only salt water now. It is a warehouse with tanks in it and not to much inventory or supplies. Kind of reminds me of that show Tanked when they go to the fish supply store and pick out the fish, just tanks and no gravel. I will have to go back next month when they get the fresh water in.
As for prices I don't know what salt water fish cost to compare , tanks were clean and the fish were very healthy.
I wish them well and hope they do good.

Can't wait to go when the freshwater is in.

It seems as if they stocked freshwater for a VERY short time, and then decided to discontinue it and stick with saltwater only. . . bummer.

We REALLY need a decent LFS *sigh*

The LFS scene in MD sucks now. In the mid 90's we had some of the best stores around but they have all now closed. CTE in timonuim is the rebirth of Exotic Aquatics. Best store left in baltimore area is

TFP is only about an hour drive from Baltimore -

I got an email the other day from them stating they will be exclusively saltwater now. In my opinion that's a bad move because now I have no reason to spend my money there and I suspect others know the same.

While looking for a new tank I checked out their website and stopped by the store. I found out they have just started to carry freshwater fish.
