We had never been to this pet store before and went to investigate their aquarium products and fish selection. The staff was so nice and helpful. The tanks were clean, fish appeared comfortable and healthy. A small and very cool collection of freshwater, saltwater, and coral to select from. Lots of cool tanks and tank set ups as well as aquarium products.
The staff is very friendly. They groomed our dog very well. I like that there's a place for dogs to do their jobs right across from the entrance.
