Fish store near Alexandria VA?


Annandale super pets used to be my go to, even if they were pricy, but since they've moved and no longer have fish, and Pristine Aquariums has closed, I don't really know a fish store near me at all.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
James

You have maintenance companies like myself that sell to the public occasionally.

Thanks. I'll check you out. Does "maintenance companies" mean you design, install, and maintain aquarium showpieces for various clients?

OMG, I didn't know you could pay people to come in and take care of your fish.

It seems like either people would go into things having or plan, or would just go buy a bunch of whatever is small at the time, and you'd end up with a PITA as stuff started growing.

I guess you mostly do marine, though, as you could have big vats of water, and people don't know how to acclimate, so they accidentally kill their expensive fish.

Thanks for response, I'll hit you up sometime when I'm looking for something, or even just ideas.

I would suggest you check out the local clubs. Some hobbyists in this area have their own collections in the basements or extra bed rooms that have a TON of fish.
