Best Aquarium/Fish Shops in SC


Well nocrapman your right I just went and checked out Fintastic in Char. Nice place, their plants could take a little more care but they have alot more than most shops. $$$$$ are needed thou, they are high.
I am a regular visitor of FishyBusiness they are very helpful and take care of what they have, They lean more towards saltwater and less on the planted aquaria, most shops do these days. I would love to find that hole in the wall fish shop that is still old school and not try to rip you a new one. It baffels me everytime I walk into one and their trying to charge double for something you can get at Doc F&S and never leave the house.

If you're in Greenville, Petland on Woodruff road isn't too bad. They have a pretty good selection of fish, but not too many plants other than the usual swords. Fish prices are decent. Fish wise they have everything from goldfish to discus, they even have olive neritie snails and shrimp sometimes.

Petland has a nice selection but their quality isn't the best The place I've been going to is Scales and Tails in Easley. The guy who runs the place knows what hes talking about and is very nice and helpful. They'll special order anything they don't have in stock and take great care of their fish. Also have a good selection of live plants.

Animal Supply House in North Myrtle Beach is......OK. Their prices are a bit high. Sometimes their stocklist is better than others. I think the fish department would be in much better shape if their main fish guy had more control over it. It can't match some of the other stores mentioned here, but it might be worth checking out.

We don't shop in Myrtle Beach since they banned people who ride motorcycles.

I don't think the new rules applied to North Myrtle, but I could be wrong. I don't blame you anyway. You aren't missing out on anything.

You can order it for a lot less than that.

yeah i know, that's what i usually do. It's just a lot more convenient if it's the only thing i need to find somewhere local. I'm willing to pay a little more to have it instantly and not pay for shipping. Maybe i'll just by the 3 liter size next time, haha.

There is a new aquatic store recently opened in Southport, NC. It is freshwater only and has about 200 tanks of FW species. Very limited on plants at this time, but the owner is looking to add more as the store grows.

Fish World Aquarium & Gifts
8128 River Road
Southport, NC 28461
910-363-4091

Regards to all,

Petland in Greenville is having a inventory reduction sale this week. 25% off equipment and freshwater fish. They even had CPD's as of yesterday! Dude said they are getting a new shipment of fish Wednesday and the sale goes until Sunday.

i just got back from north Charleston where i attended the u.s.food show while i was there i stop by 2 aquarium stores; age of aquariums in Charleston and tideline aquatics.
age of aquariums was sub par i was disappointed. tideline aquatics was great! its what you wished your lfs could be knowledgeable and interested staff clean tanks and good selection good prices and i met a Hikari rep who gave me a free sample of their new shrimp cuisine. the shops in hanahan SC. about 15 min from n.Charleston if your ever in the area i would stop in a++

Default best Fish Shop in Myrtle Beach

You should try Sea Critters in North Myrtle Beach. It's all saltwater but it amazing. He had a large supply of corals and fish. Bruce is very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He'll pack the stuff really good if you have to travel with the items you purchased. Go by there everytime I'm at the beach. He maintains a large number of tanks at the beach including the one in the Bass Pro Shop. Great store, Great Stuff
