This place is a dump. They have no supplies that aren't full of dust, and even that is very little. I looked at some salt water products, 3 were expired, 1 from 2007. Maybe he should clean it up, add stuff that people can buy that won't harm their fish, or hang it up! Just because you like fish doesn't mean you can take care of a store. Very disappointed.

When i moved to joliet 5 yrs ago, I wanted to find a nice pet store to get my supplies from while helping the local economy & no the chain stores(or worse yet superstores). I stopped in one day just to check it out. There is soo much stuffed in that little store. We bought a few more fish(then a few more tanks) and are repeat customers now.

Definitely visit the store even if you are not thinking of buying any fish. Where as most pet store employee's are just required to be able to count, I know of 2 employee's there actually have written books on aquarium fish. That speaks alot about their knowledge base. When the wife and I were talking about getting into saltwater sometime the owner talked to us for about an hour even when we said we could not afford it then. He just wanted us to have some info.

The hours are weekdays 12-6 and about the same for weekends, but I think its because they all have other careers and the fish are their passion.
Cant find a fish anywhere, they can get it for you.

IIRC tuesday is new fish day.

They know their fish. :)
BTW say Hi to oreo (the store cat)

I have shopped at Hobbyland for almost twenty years. From the time they opened on Jefferson Street in Joliet to where they are now on Larkin. The owners and employees are very friendly and knowledgable and the prices are right. I like to shop at pet stores that are not a major corporation.
