Franksaquarium.com Long Island A+

I live on Long Island and so does Frank from Franksaquarium.com. My fist time visiting him was today.

Most of the fish he has I've never actually seen in any local fish stores in over 2 years.

I picked up 12 chili rasboras and 12 spotted rasboras. I am very happy!

Each tank he runs has its own canister filter. I saw no ich and no dead fish in any of his tanks. I can tell he cares about his fish.

Hes located on the south shore, in the middle of Long Island. Was willing to order fish for my girlfriend and also more for me as well. He seems like a nice guy and I think people from Long Island should take a run and visit him, or check out his website.

I've purchased fish from him in the past and had a great experience. Really nice guy, I was able to meet him in Bklyn to get my fish which was convenient for me. Haven't checked out his site in a while tho, I guess I'll go right now.

The grass isn't always greener in the other tank.

He sells out of his house. I'm waiting on a shipment of some Dario Dario from him. Qckwzrd if you ever need anything from him again let me know. My girlfriend is going to want to go canal street in a few weeks to stock her tank with cardinal tetras.

I totally agree with the OP. Frank is a great guy who truly cares about his fish! I also purchased the chili rasboras, a scarlet badis and zebra rasboras. They are all such amazing little fish that you will probably never find in a pet store. The best part is that he quarantines all his fish before he sells them

He sells them straight out of his garage but it's so cool to see a place with all these amazing rare fish. I'm eagerly awaiting for him to get some dwarf corys

He actually had 2 little guys left and gave them to me free of charge because he wanted them to have a good home. Very nice and knowledgeable guy!

Top notch fishes from frank. I got some chili rasboras from him way back and still have them.
Definitely a great guy to deal with.
