House of Fins

Is this place worth visiting? How is the selection of nano fish?

I like the guys there, they just remodeled the store and scaled down their freshwater selection. The idea was (as I understand it) to have less pedestrian fish and bolster their exotic stock - which I'm not sure has happened quite yet. Might give it a few more weeks? I'll probably head there tomorrow, last I checked they had a few scarlet badis if that works for you. Also might as well give Greenwich Aquaria a shot if you're in the area, they can be hit or miss as they scaled their freshwater down quite a bit last year, but have very cool fish in from time to time.

Feel free to PM me if you want to know anything else!

Staff is helpful, tanks and stock are awesome. Price is ridiculous. I mean get ready to pay double to triple. I go in there just to ask questions from knowledgeable staff, then buy a fish for compensating for their time. Then I go to other LFS and get what I need. Kind of like going to Best Buy to check out the product and then going home and purchasing on Amazon. Greenwich is full of rich people that don't ask questions about cost.

Went into the store in early Jan and it is almost completely stocked with salt water fish. The few fresh water fish in the tanks were somewhat exotic (and saw a few dead). Very nice store if you have a reef setup (not my thing). As pezrock mentioned, the area is rather wealthy, but there are plenty of areas with people without Butlers (me for example).
