I have been there many times. I like to go in and look around. He has a lot of neat reptiles, That is why I go. But they are very over priced. He has had a pied ball python in there for over 6 months now. I can get one for about 600 plus shipping (50$)... last time I was there it was 1200. His reptiles look very under fed. Then I was informed that he is scared of snakes...so it makes me wonder on their care. The cages always seem to be dirty with old sheds and gross looking water. I have gone in to get used tanks he has good deals sometimes. Currently He has a bearded dragon there that I want. But I am wary wondering if I get it will I be getting a healthy animal or something that will soon pass.

I have shopped at this store for years. Always a pleasant atmosphere. I have had good luck with all the fish I have purchased from here. If you want to have bad luck go to Walmart for the cheap sick fish.
Remember your aquarium, water, temperature, introduction to the new tank, the ride home and time all plays a big factor in how new fish adapt to your tank. I will continue to come here for fish for a long time. Look how many years this buisness has been doing well. Keep up the good work guys, you are doing something right. :)

i just picked up some nice australian corals... i buy here often.. pretty competetive pricing..come on people you have to buy the fish on fri day when shipment comes in.. as with all pet store when you add a lot of fish to a system it shocks both the fish and the systems water.. ive had all my corals from here with 100% survival rate but the fish is maybe around 60%..all in all, best shop around locally for coral, period....

I bought five fish from this store two weeks ago. I had read the bad reviews but thought I would give them a try anyway. Four of the five fish I purchased have died already, along with all of the other fish in my tank that had been thriving for over a year in my tank. I don't know what the new fish had but if you want to save your fish and your money DO NOT buy from this store!

Every time we are there, the corals he does carry look great. They are the more common, less colorful, lesser expensive corals, so I wish he carried more colorful items. He will order something, though. The fish are not so great. There are frequently fish who look stressed, their color(s) does not look great, and about one out of three visits there are dead fish in his little tanks. I am not sure if it's his supplier, if he's not feeding them right, or if the water's not up to specs. I don't want to pass judgment on why they don't look good, but what matters to customers is that they do not look good mostly. So in sum, it is a very small shop with nice, basic specimens of common corals, but a poor quality, limited selection of marine fish that I would never advise buying. Come here for basic corals! Also, don't talk fish stuff with them. He comes off as a little arrogant, a know it all type, and a lady who works there frequently insists fish and coral are species that they are not. Years of reef-keeping and a Biology degree give me a little more than a dunce cap when I enter marine shops.

i was a friend of an ex girlfriend of Greg's. He made her daughter go to his shop with him while she was at work without her knowledge. He was extremely lazy, and made this 9 year old girl work for him cleaning out tanks and picking out dead fish. I went to his shop and caught him by surprise, dipping out a very large amount of dead salt water fish. Most of the lovely fish i saw were stressing out in the corners of the tanks, and some of them even had ick and fin rot and nothing was done about it when i asked. He takes horrible care of his fish. He may know what he is doing, but i dont think he takes his own advice.

best shop around in a 50 mile radius of peoria. if you cant find a CERTAIN ITEM OR THING, ask Greg , as he more than likly can get it for you. the large pet shops ( petsmart and petco ) will not or do not order any special items. or parts. for example buy a 50.00 item and a certain 3.00 piece wears out or breaks they wont get the part ,but expect you to buy another new item. so you can throw it away and cost you an extra 47.00.
TRULY ONE OF THE BEST REAL PET SHOPS LEFT that are privately owned.
