Nicest Store in town
I just wanted to say after about 25 Phone-calls to other stores. Fishy Business had or got EVERYTHING that I needed to setup my Oceanic hex Tank. I would Recommend Fishy Business To anyone who needs supplies at a price that wont break your budget.
WORST PLACE EVER – This is the worst pet store I have ever been in. The guy working couldnt take his eyes off of the computer to talk to me. He was a horrible person and I hope that this business shuts down. They have like 10 tanks and 1 fish in each tank. Do not go there it will be the worst mistake you make. He told me he wouldnt sell me any fish because of what was in my tank. I have had tanks for over 10 years I think I know what I am doing!
He wanted to put a small pleco in his tank with 2 large Oscars that he told me killed and ate his last pleco, so he is correct I will not sell animal that has little or no chance of survival in it new home.
Great experience – I went there first when I was ready to try saltwater again. Barb did not try to sell me anything that I didn't need. Her energetic attitude for fish is contagious. You will leave this store excited about what you have just done. She has been very helpful and has not sent me down the wrong path. All additions to my tank have been sucessful. It is a busy little store and some times you must wait your turn, but, you will be helped. They have good pricing and most of all healthy stock. they have both been very helpful with my DIY projects. Even though they will make no money from it, they help anyway. They do seem to cater to people with smaller systems. Which is fine. i like to watch things start out small and experience the growth.
Pretty Decent – I have gone in here many times. Almost always had a good experience. I dont know thier names, but the owners seem nice enough. They remember what I have and my tank set up. They have a good (in my opinion) selection and I have never had the troubles that the other reviewer has mentioned. The prices seem consistent with what I have paid elswhere.
What I do like, is that they seem to stock more smaller coral frags that fit my tank better. The owners always seem to go out of thier way for my business (not that its much business). But I really like the fact that they have split frags for me and brought in smaller stuff for those of us with small tanks.
One thing I did notice that kind of detracted from my score, was there was a guy in while I was browsing that had a tank with (as he described) problems. He spoke of bad algae (could have been cyano) and a couple recent deaths. He was looking for something to restock and help the algae problem. They proceded to sell him just about everything he asked for (fish, crabs, and shrimp). Now perhaps they knew him and his tank was known to them, but it seemed to me that perhaps they should have addressed the tank conditions instead of selling all those specimen into torturous tank conditions. We have all had tank problems in the past.
Not the nicest fish in the ocean – I have been in this store several times and bought a quite few little items here and there. Overall they have a well stocked store, clean and much variety. The major drawn back is the Owner, Barb, She is very moody and vocally so. She changes prices on fish all the time. So items are for sale and then all the sudden not longer for sale. If there was consistancy and friendly service I would love this store. But 9 out of 10 times when I have gone in, I have either been completely ignored or had to wait while her and her husband agrue about prices. Her husband is very nice. He is consistent. Overall not a good shopping experiance. Great products awful service.
