Hi,

Worldwide fish & pets in New Haven CT.

Anyone purchasing angels or discus from them?
Any issues?

That shop is very close to where I live, though I haven't been there in the last year. They just started up their business again after being closed for several years. I'm not sure what their stock is like now, but they were helpful and willing to order unusual fish and trade for things which is getting to be a rare thing in pet stores nowadays. The owner was planning on getting a much larger store soon, so they would be a good shop to follow and go to if those plans are true.

The fish seemed ok when I was there last, and they tended towards the more unusual stuff compared with big chain stores.

Peter is the owner of the store. Very knowledgeable, loves to talk discus. The store is a little dark in the inside and for someone like me who gets on OCD mode at times, this store is not very well organized. He has discus in stock, honestly, the current stock is not the best quality if you know discus. Hes had nice discus in the past. Nice selection of fish, I recommend that you quarantine if you are adding fish to an existing discus tank.

I heard that they closed for good after a particularly bad winter a few years ago. The power went out and they lost all their salt water fish & corals and could not recover from the losses. A real shame. They were one of the best fish stores I've been to.

I was there the end of July 2015. He's planning on moving the store to other side of the plaza, same location just facing the front.
Said he was hoping to be moved in by mid September.

Huh, I was in a hurry so i didnt really look inside or anywhere in the plaza. All i know was that it was dark inside and the doors were locked. I will have to back another day to check it out.

I was just there a couple of days ago. It's a mess and he apologized saying they were moving into the new store soon. The tanks are clean and the fish look healthy. I'm looking forward to seeing the new store.

They just posted a bunch of pictures of their new fixtures, they look pretty nice. They said on their facebook to stay tuned for a grand opening of the new store.
