    I just discovered this cool fish store right next to my local church which has everything you could possibly want, so I'm pretty chuffed about that :)

    I live in a small town, and have to travel about 30 kilometers or more to get to the nearest pet store, but it is a great place. Only thing is, I can't drive!

    I guess I'm lucky to have about 10 fish shops within a 20 minute drive, but my favorite is just 2 or 3 miles down the highway.

    I have a little test I like to give fish stores before I hand over any money...

    first I ask them about cycling a tank, then I chat to them about common diseases

    If I get the impression that they don't know what they're talking about, I don't visit them again

    Thats a good system Rob

    I stroll around the shop for about an hour or so depending on how big it is, and I listen about to what advice they give to their customers, the quality of their supplies, how many dead fish I see, and how many sick fish I see.

    :)

    i dont mind seeing dead fish in feeder fish tanks but in other tanks i dont like to see dead fish i like this one because they maintain a 125 gallon tank and i rarely ever see dead fish even in there feeder fish tanks and the GM is really nice and has helped me save money in various ways and i go there every week and i am trying to get to know them so when i am old enough i can work there no problem

    BE JEALOUS fish r friend i go there every day now to make you jealous ;D

    The fish store is just a few minutes away by car here -- so far it seems like a really nice shop..... though they do sell painted glassfish :-[

    I've also got the big name pet places around as well, all with in about 10 minutes.

    you guys are lucky, i live on the AF base and it's a 20 min drive to the city. and they only have ONE pet store with a very small selection of fish. and then there is wal mart...those are my two places for supplies, and they are very limited...And the nearest good pet store is 2 hours away.....it sucks...
