I am so jealous that you live relatively close to them. I order from them often and would love to check out the actual store.

I've been to both stores, and they are good for a lot of things. I'd rate That Fish Place as the far better store, especially for planted tank related items.

I'd say both fall a bit flat if you want very high end or exotic equipment.

I like the stores, but I also think there are several as good stores in the area, depending upon what I'm looking for.

For what it's worth: I've been to Nemo's many times, and Aquarium center in NJ once. I like the second more, but have probably given more business to Nemos. I'd say that aquarium center has better fish selection.

Have not been to that fish place but plan on checking it out sometime.

I will have to agree with DaveK. That Fish Place has a huge selection far beyond what others carry, but they do fall flat when it comes to exotic things for fish, plants, or regular pet items.
But to add some argument to that statement, i got my four piranhas from them. I also saw a bunch of Baracuda there one time as well! But that is just all random, its not like they keep them in stock lol.....So they occationaly / randomly get exotic fish in, but not often, and when they do, its not advertised on their website.

That fish place is fun. They just sent me some random coupons in the mail. Most of the fish are bread and butter fish but their salt water selection is very nice. I always get dry goods there because it's usually cheaper than buying online. They're literally a warehouse...
