I've been there once like 1-2 yrs ago, a small store actually not much in terms of livestock. If I remembered correctly, they have a tank of CBS. And this one I believe in the corner of Northern Blvd is for sale?? Closing down maybe??? I guess fish store is a tough business.

He had over 40 more tanks in his home, where he kept even more discus. I hope that is not the store that is closing down. Sad to see local fish stores closing.

Sounds like it's Blue Gold Aquarium. It's a shame since they had some cool oddball fish from time to time. I might just stop by on Friday if I'm not busy.

Edit: The original listing got taken down so here's the new one:

Anyways, I'll be going tomorrow. I'll be sure to report back here.

Yes, anybody going? Want to know if they have any circulation pump or canister filters on sale, looking for a Hydor nano 425gph pump.

the store hardly had anything good when it was running in good order. If they had a fire, chances are their livestock may have been compromised by extended periods of power outage or water damage when the fire department went in to take care of the fire. Hardware and sealed foods may be worth getting but look carefully at all else. Don't count on refunds

Just came out from there....you must bring a flashlight and gloves. Like the surgical ones, you're going to get dirty.

There's a lot of equipment and parts. I wasn't interested in tanks but they have all sizes and I saw people leaving with tanks.

They did have a lot of pumps...but nothing nano, and they were most used in the saltwater tanks
