Worst Firsh Shop – The tanks are dirty and not kept up and the staff know nothing about the species, habitat, eating or living requirements of the animals, much less the prices! The store is very dirty and run-down from the outside and inside.
It is very disgusting that they keep a large South-American turtle inside in a tank so small that it can hardly turn around.
They are the worst of all the shops near TwinCities.
Car Salesmen – I went down to Auqaland couple days ago to shop for some new saltwater fish. Once I step into the store, these guys turn in used car salesmen. Every answer I give they try to push some other gadget that I know I don't need. So I spend 20 min trying to look at their selection while the guy kept selling, selling and selling. I ended up walking out with a bad taste in my mouth.
Aside from their bad salesmen, their tank does not look good at all. Each and every tank is overstock, making their fish looking very stressed and unhealthy. They also keep a large turtle within a poorly made tank that barely fits him, and he looks sooooo miserable. I really feel sorry for him, these Aqualand guys clearly doens't care about their animals.
Terrible Store – I bought a tank from them last week thinking that it would be a good buy. The employee there sad that, up till the point of sale, it was being used by them as a freshwater tank, and that it was in good condition. COMPLETE LIE.
I had to clean it for 5 hours. That's how dirty it was. The tank could not possibly be in use, I found three spiders, yes SPIDERS. Also there were two LEAKS I had to fix, even though the worker a Auqaland assured me that there's absolutely not leaks. He said that the tank has been and was used as a functional tank up till the time of the sale. LIES!!!!
I called three times and explaining the problems, but they keep saying ALL SALES ARE FINAL, and wouldn't hear any of it.
So Let this be a lesson to me and YOU. Go some where else, like Wet World, Something Fishy, World of Fish, Saltwater Empire. They are all very close to Auqaland, most of them have better selection, and all of them have better service. Heck, even Petsmart and Petco are much much better.
Thank you for hearing my rant. For your own good, say away!!!
Awesome store!!!!!! – This store has a huge selection of fish and supplies...the best in the cities. It also has the biggest selection of tanks on hand in the cities. There is lots of room to move around in this store, and the staff is helpful.
Cool fish place IN the city!! – This store is just located in South Minneapolis and it is a pretty nice place! Lot's of large tanks for sale and friendly staff. Their selection of fish is great and seems to be getting larger and even better now! They have large tanks and small tanks. Good selection of cichlids and large predatory fishes like Arowanas. A saltwater section as well. This store along with Forest Lake Pets are my favorites!
mcg – This is the best store in the Twin Cities. They have a great selection of fish and tanks at all times.
