Hi guys. Can any Houstonians recommend the best fish stores in town for me? I know which ones I liked the most but I've misplaced my list of stores and dont remember the names or addresses. Thanks.

I am for sure checking out the Fish Gallery!

Was hoping for at least 1 reply. I checked out City Pets, Aquarium World, The Fish Gallery, and another little shop I forgot the name of. City Pets is the best so far. Fish Gallery was a big disappointment to me. Not sure about their obsession with african cichlids. 80% of the display tanks were mainly africans with some mixed south american cichlids and barbs. Did see a cool aquatic turtle, though.

Was hoping to see some more nice ones but not sure if that'll happen.

Last time I was in Houston city pets and Aquarium world were the stores I went to. Those two stores are nice, but I'm sure as big as the city is there has to be more. I would like to visit them again but I'm in the military now and unable to.

Thanks! I tried to check out the ADG shop but they turned me away. That was the one I was most excited to see.

The guy I talked to on the phone said there was nothing to see because the store was empty and wasnt ready to visitors. I asked to talk to Frank as he was the one who told me to stop by when I was in town but didnt get a call.

Got to see City Pets, though! Lol

I've inquired at ADG a couple of times about various items. I have never once received a call back after leaving a message with someone.
