Awesome store in bountiful

Check out Bird World in Bountiful! They are kinda basic, selection wise, but they have an over abundance of Mystery Snails in many colors, including Blue, Ivory, and I even saw a few Purple ones! They have Mexican Dwarf Lobsters and freshwater Blue Lobsters. But the thing about them I found the most pleasing are their Oto Cats. When I say they are healthy, I mean it. Their Otos are the brightest and healthiest I've ever seen. No sores, bright colors, and they just mow over EVERYTHING. I was tempted to grab three myself, but i'm low on cash. The tanks are kinda run down, but all the fish look incredibly healthy. CHECK EM OUT.

Easy way to get to em from I-15 is to take the 2600 So. exit towards the mountains, then turn right at the first light. You should see em right past some auto dealerships.

Bump!!

So I visited again and these guys have alot of stuff in stock!
Some fish caught my eye:

German Blue Rams -- 11.99
Kuhli Loaches -- 2.99
CPOs -- 11.99
Tons of healthy Otocinculus -- 2.00 I think
Celestial Pearl Danios -- 7.99
And many many more.

They even get CRS and Ember Tetras in every once-in-a-while

and apparantly they aren't so basic as I thought.

I LOVE SCREEEEMPS!!!!!

@TheFlyingBear

What is their plant quality and selection? Petco's quality makes me worry. I'll probably be plant shopping soon.

48 gallon bowfront.
Nothing alive inside.
Cleaning in progress.
Anybody in utah have excess plants to try?

Selection is lacking, but changes from week to week. High quality plants though, they have Dark Red Ludwigia right now.

I was going to go here the other day but it seems they are closed now. Google shows them as permanently closed and the phone does not even ring before it end the call...

I was going to check what they had for plant before I ordered online since I would rather have bought local.

Drag to see them go. Other than Fish 4 U (great store) anyone know of other LFS in greater SLC area? I'm breeding thousands of Endler's and need places to sell them.
