No disrespect intended but that is one of the worst fish stores I've been to in my 40 years in the hobby all over the world. This post looks more like SPAM to me.Found a good store to purchase fish in Columbia SC --
Originally,bought fish from a big chain store and they all died. Our water tested fine. Not a great experience.
In fact I would bet money that is is in fact SPAM.No disrespect intended but that is one of the worst fish stores I've been to in my 40 years in the hobby all over the world. This post looks more like SPAM to me.
I would second that. I almost forgot about Lazy Creek. We moved to Columbia a few years ago but used to buy food for our American Bulldog and occasionally a few fish here and there.I like the lazy creek stores in Lexington and Leesville. My wife and I know most of the employees personally and they are all very honest about their stock. That, to me, is more important than having a big selection or a lot of stock. Plus, they are willing to price match and special order if they can.

New guy from Florence here! I've had an aquarium for years, and just decided to do a jump to planted. Unfortunately, we don't really have much in the way of LFS. I generally get my fish from PetSmart, and I've been getting my plants from Pet Lovers. Gregg at PL is awesome, and will gladly give you advice and guidance (even if it means sending you to another store to get something cheaper). I haven't had luck with their fish, though. I might try to find the place on Cashua tomorrow. I didn't realize they had moved, thought they closed.Any updates on Florence area stores; Pet Lovers/Pet World/PetSmart? I did visit PetSmart over the weekend; was as expected for a chain store, fish stocks were decent (FYI - new stocks arrive on Tuesdays). Plants limited to plastic tube assortments. Inverts; no shrimp, but red claw crabs...I bought the last 4 for my brack tank for $5 w/coupon Swap-n-Shop.
