Yea STL is struggling lately. No hardcore dedicated fish stores. At least for freshwater

There is Pets Plus off of 5th street in St.Charles. But they are mainly ponds now. Have the average fish, maybe a few randoms here and there. Nothing special.

What about the following?

Pet Market Place
8011 Watson Road, Saint Louis, MO 63119
(314) 962-2257

They were pretty good from what I could tell from my several visits there.

Pet Market Place had a great selection of freshwater fish. At least, they did back when I was still in STL last spring. :P

650g fish room. 15 30g tanks, 150g sump.

In addition to the ones mentioned, might I add Malawi Aquatics. Not sure about their plant selection but if you looking for African cichlids, Billy's is the place to go!! Quite an impressive set-up!! Personally, TWP and Pet Market Place are my two favorites, though for a city of this size, the lfs selection is quite poor!!

TWP will order you fish from time to time and they seem to take the best care of them aswell. I have purchased many fish from them. Actually this is where I aquired my first L183. I went back to them before I bought my newest ones but they said there was no way they could get them now.

The pet market place has some harder to find fish from time to time and I like their cory selection.

About Fish Stores in & around st. louis

Just wanted to let you all know, that Beldts fish store listed on Howdershell, is no longer there. It's a shame to. That used to be the best fish store around for anything aquatic, not just fish. I haven't been able to find anything else, other than Walmart or pet smart, for any aquatic pets or supply. Let me know if you find something. Thanks

Awesome thanks goalie, I guess you know how hard it is to Google good fish stores. Every time I do it seems they are shut down, that Hazelwood one is what I'm checking tomorrow. THANKS

Bump: Well apparently it's closed ��

The two Aqua Worlds and the Tropical World Pets were all open when I shopped at them last fall. I haven't been to any of the three recently but Aqua World on Gravois had a bunch of different plants and so did the Tropical World Pets on Watson. Aqua World has them placed in their tanks and they might not all be labeled. Depending on who is working, they may or may not be able to tell you the name and light requirements. Tropical World has several tanks in one area that are plant-only tanks and everything is very well labeled.
I would definitely call first to make sure they are open when you plan on going out there. I think Aqua World is closed on Sundays - at least they used to be.
If you really want to get a bunch of plants, look up the Missouri Aquarium Society auction coming up next weekend at the Crowne Plaza Hotel near the airport. If you've never been to one of their auctions you should definitely go! Lots of plants, fish, supplies. You never know what will show up. I think it is on Sunday. It can last several hours but it is immensely entertaining and you might meet some of the local plant/fish experts.

55 gal planted community tank, 46 gal Angel tank, 10 gal planted Cherry tank, 55 gal Angel tank, 20 gal Barb tank, 20 gal soon-to-be Cardinal tank
