Terre Quatics = Good

Aquatropics = Bad

Do not get these 2 confused.

Capsaicin_MFK 07-13-2011 07:20 PM

Every store has it's own unique set of inventory, but I prefer Forest Lake Pets and TerreQuatics over anything else.

Sea Level guys can get some rare piranhas and their selection of used tanks is nice.

Guess we all have different likes/dislikes but I have to completely disagree with this.
Aquatropics has probably 4x the amount of freshwater fish than Terre Quatics has and has a much larger floor space for tank sales and accessories. Much cleaner store also.
No reptiles like TQ but I'm not into that anyway.


Haven't been to all places on the list but here are my top picks.....
  1. Forest Lake Pets
  2. Aqualand
  3. World of Fish
  4. Pet Expo (Mankato)
  5. Aquatropics
Thanks for the great list of shops! :thumbsup:

Here is a link to a Google map with most of them mapped. I did not map the petcos and petsmarts because they are all over.

Another down vote for Aquatropics, the sales guys are jerks. When I first got into the hobby there were parts of the nitrogen cycle that baffled me. I went there and asked them about my high nitrates and they tried selling me a penguin biowheel filter. They claimed I didn't have a good bacteria colony in my filter. That did not sound right to me but they were pushy and derogatory, saying I didn't care about my fish. I left, did some research and found the only way to bring down nitrate levels was to do water changes. If they would not have been pushy and derogatory about my fish care I may have gone back.

Aqualand is my favorite. I haven't been there in a while but the owners are friendly. They have a good fish selection and unlike all the other places I have been they enjoy talking about the hobby, just talking about anything and everything, not selling.

World of fish, is okay, a lot of people really seam to like them, I suspect they are a better salt water shop then freshwater. An employee accidentally double charged my account which caused my checking account to bounce and the owner was ... an a-hole, only offered a sorry which wasn't even sympathetic. Because of the way he just shoved me off I suspect he is that way all the time so I don't do business there anymore.

Sea Level is a good shop, employes are nice and enjoy talking about their fish even if you don't plan on buying anything.

I'm giving 2 thumbs up for Wet World ...
Had many good experiences there and some very knowledgeable employees..

One the other hand Forest Lake Pets, great selection, but when several fish, not cheap ones I might add, became ill very shorty after purchase they were very defensive and a bit rude when discussing over the phone about what was possibly the problem...
End result won't buy from them again..

actual number is..

not that i care...lol
but your welcome..

Tropiquatics in North St. Paul. Great selection of FW fishes and RARE FW fishes. Consider it the mini version of Forest Lake Pets. Seng, the owner is a great guy to do business with. He specializes in Discus and everything else. I Highly recommend Tropiquatics. The fish room is identical to FLP!

Jarek Strzechowski 02-22-2013 10:09 PM

Tropiquatics in N St. Paul's staff isn't great but their selection is pretty impeccable. Any freshwater tropical fish you want they should pretty much have both male and female of or be willing to order. WOF by the airport is pretty good too. Their plants are kinda weedy though. I prefer petco's plants, they're surprisingly healthier. I'm going to be trading livestock at aquatropics in a few days because of compatibility issues, we'll see how they are. It looks promising from what I've heard.

REMEMBERING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TROPIQUATICS AND AQUATROPICS IS SO HARD!!!!

All Reef is no more. I'm good friends with the owner Peggy, she helped me set up my pico when it was saltwater. Her store was one of a kind goodness and as long as there weren't a other customers she would talk about the hobby for hours with you.

Is that GIF you? Tropiquatics= best shop in Twin cities
Highland Tropical pets apparently closed like 20 years ago, you probably want to take it off the list.

sandlaquatics 05-10-2013 03:55 AM

Please add my newly opened store to the list. As of right now I am home based but moving to a location soon. All visits are by appointment only until I get into my location. I will update with the location once I am there. I have a lot of rare quality fish in stock. Thanks Scott.

This is kind of random but just my opinion: Forest Lake Pets is my favorite fish store in mn (that I've been too). It's far away but they have a HUGE selection of fish andthey're all REALLY cheap! I highly recommend it.

jlor016 10-09-2013 04:46 AM

Best spot for inverts!
 
Whats the best spot for rare to common invert, specifically dwarf shrimps. I would like to get decent affordable shrimp stuff locally if I could. And don't say WOF, they have outrageous prices, not to my likes...
