Notes: I have been here and I have to say the owner is amazing, friendly, and their prices are very reasonable. They have just started a freshwater area (as they are primarily Saltwater) which they plan to expand on. Lots of supplies.

Notes: Joanstone has already posted it but I wanted to add a few notes. Vance is a great guy and can order you almost anything (I mean anything hehe). I usually go there about once a month because it's only 20 minutes away. He does a lot of salt water, but has a decent selection of fish, sometimes exotic. Also he custom built a huge 1000 gallon or something show tank.

Hello all,

Wanted to offer an update on Easy Aquariums...the freshwater section is now fully stocked and takes up about fifty percent of the store. There is also a really cool pond/riparium in the back. Lots of angelfish, gourami, cichlid, and a decent selection of schooling fish...but I am sure the owner will order you anything. I just got a 29 gallon setup there, and he ordered all the parts I wanted for a very decent price, better than a kit in terms of quality and cheaper than buying the parts on my own. It is a great place...every employee is very knowledgeable and helpful. If you can check it out, I highly recommend it!

Anybody have any places they could recommend in the Bangor area? as much as I like Vance's in Bucksport it's hard to find the willingness or time to make the 50 minute drive.

It's in the Bangor area and I like it. Not a huge selection of equipment but decent for browsing livestock.
