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.

I ordered a Flowerhorn (who shall be referred to as Mr. Wonderful from now on) and had it shipped to my home in Gulfport, MS. Mr. Wonderful shipped exactly when the shipping policy stated that he would. I received emails from Pet Zone when I placed the order and when Mr. Wonderful actually left the store along with the tracking number. Finally, when I received Mr. Wonderful he was packaged well (quadruple bagged with a heater pack in a small cooler) and in perfect condition. Mr. Wonderful is definitely the exact same fish that was advertised/photographed on the website. Pet Zone's photographs accurately depicted the size and color of Mr. Wonderful. Often, ordering livestock online can be a nerve-racking experience fraught with uncertainty. This was such an easy, flawless, and pleasant transaction. Without reservation I will order from Pet Zone again in the future and I recommend that everyone else give them try. If your experience is anywhere close to mine you will not be disappoin...
