Closed now - good riddance.
There is no surprise that they had to close. We gave them three chances to meet our needs. Each visit resulted in frustration with a lazy and incompetant staff; concern for the health and well-being of the animals in the store and horror at the lack of cleaning everywhere. The staff are more concerned with their tatoos and dred-lick hairstyles than helping customers. No idea who the owner is but with a top rated vet-school in the same town, surely you could have kept the animals in better health.
PS. We had 3 fish die within the '24 hour guarantee time' and the staff refused to replace them in spite of the guarantee because one of the staff claimed to be a necrotic examiner and after his assessment, he felt we had killed them with blunt force trauma. Guppies killed by blunt force trauma? How does one determine that with a cursory glance. IDIOTS!!

Crappy pet store. Lacks any type of structure or management. Staff sucks; they're lazy, don't wanna help you, & are down right RUDE! They don't know anything about the animals they sell either.. And they have a poor selection of supplies.

This place is run down with a very small selection. The staff are not helpful at all. Also, the grooming service is awful! Do not take your pet there.

This pet store left something to be desired. I realize that small town pet shops cannot have the selection provided by large chains, but I felt very limited by the one brand of food they carried for my different types of small critters. Also the employee seemed very bored and unhelpful. Some of the animals were set up in oversized rubbermaid-type bins, which can be acceptable housing if properly maintained, does nothing for the appearance of the already run-down looking facility. Also the reptiles appeared to be in need of some additional humidity in their tanks. I did enjoy the Amazon greeting people at the door.

Pet stores in the Golden Triangle area leave much to be desired, but Gone Fishin' is an exception to the rule. With exotic pets and pet supplies, anything that you need for your rat, cat, snake, or fish can be found in this store. Recently remodeled, they have individual areas that house both fresh and saltwater aquarium fish, lizards and snakes, birds including a variety of budgies and conures, and small furry critters such as hamsters and mice.
While their selection for the above listed animals is huge, they do not have as large of a variety of cat and dog items. However, their prices are still reasonable, and they have the most knowledgeable, pet-friendly staff in the area.
