Add some color to your tank with this bright Platy! They are super hardy fish that are peaceful and not too fussy.

Great freshwater fish store. They carry all types including monster fish like arowana. The couple who owns the store are super friendly specially the Mama. Papa a little bit grumpy but that's no issue as long as the fish are healthy. Parking is just a little bit tough.

Clean fish tanks, healthy fish, and very good selection. I could tell it was a good spot the second I looked at how clean the tanks were. Good stock on aquarium equipment as well!

This place already has my business for life. I've ordered hundreds of live fish online from every of the top retailers, and while some are still very good, this place stands. I've had had HORRIBLE lucky finding a good-sized, good priced iridescent shark and have had 6 arrive at my house from other places with ich, diseases, fungus, and although I am a hell of a fish doctor I have only had one live. I got two two PRIMO specimens from Pet Zone today that I cannot be happier about. They shipped next day, not delay. I also got two narrow leaf Java Fern which I haven't seen in other stores and where in absolute in impeccable condition. You guys rock. -MM
