It is the proverbial hole in the wall... they sparingly stock large species and consistently had the following...

o half the tanks in the store were empty and never cleaned after being drained. we're talking months inbetween visits to see the same dirty half plumbed tanks in the same condition.
o pair of fancy doves in a cage at the rear of the store, large tank of koi in the back.
o always a child sleeping in stroller parked immediately to the right of the front door.
o 2-3 staff usually either on the computer or watching tv.
o few shelves of meds and dry foods but nothing out of the ordinary.
o No plants.

Spoke to the owner a few times whom always offered to place "special" orders for anything of interest, while sheepishly admitting to having you buy in bulk quantities when pressed for details... it implied they had no intention of stocking the store to draw clients. IF i were to get anything live from there, it would be subject to no less than a 2 month quarantine.

Take this feedback with a grain of salt and check them out for yourself.

I have to agree 100%. I went to this store a handful of times a few years back and observed the same conditions as stated by Al. Only thing I ever bought from them were some discus breeding cones that they had at a bargain price, but got home and bleached them for a few days before even thinking of using them. What little livestock they had each time I went was never in good shape, and the dry goods shelves were always bare. That being said, I have not been there in.over 2 years, so I don't know what the store looks like now.

so guys I decided to pay a visit to this place today. All I have to honestly say is this is by far one of the most horrible, disgusting, nasty and I'm cleanleigh place I have ever visit it when it comes to a pet shop. This place has no more than three to four types of ciclids tired fish and a few goldfish here and there aquariums are extremely dirty or should I just say it's something that you never want to clean yourself. I'm not overly bashing this place but there is nothing that I can do or say to you that will justify why display should be closed down with all respect to the owner. There is a few ceramic bio balls kama a few filter bags here and there a whisper filter, and fuel crappy pieces of wood that are not really driftwood it's just really crappy looking. overall if I have scored out of 10 I would give it a point 1 out of 10 if you do not believe me you can always go check out the place.

sorry for the grammar I was actually using Google Voice to type of the things while I was driving. Something I would not want anyone to do a course.

I kid you not. I went to see if they might have test kits, moss and filter and maybe a nano tank or so.. Nothing!
