Fins N Critters is a dump ! Always has been and always will be . I don't understand why anyone would want to go there . Not only do that place smell like dead rats , and the interior is in desperate need of some paint , but that place is infested with roaches . You can go in there on any given day and see roaches crawling everywhere and the nonchalant owner smashing them with his bare hands . Not only is he discusting but so is his store . Fins N Critters need to do the city of ABQ a favor and close its doors for good . If you can't get rid of the roaches , the odor , and that hideous green & black paint that's on the interior of the store , it's apparent that you don't deserve to be in business . Take my word for it people ! This is not the place you want to buy anything from or take your kids .

Bad Store. Avoid.\r

Yesterday I stopped by this store. They split their store between reptiles and aquatics... \r

In the aquatics section, I pointed out a Puffer that was being harassed by a Convict Cichlid, to the aquatics

My family has been checking out this pet store for years throughout all of the changing owners. In the past, the store has been A disaster. Recently, the store is under new ownership and the store has cleaned up very nicely. The staff is friendly and helpful. The prices are pretty good and the fish tanks, pet cages, and merchandise is clean. We have been buying fish there a lot lately. I found two super healthy beautiful convict cichlids there with bright colors on the sides. If you are a saltwater aquarium owner, they are expanding and upgrading their saltwater selections and the fish are very healthy and happy. They also have some cute animals like chinchilla and hedgehogs and lots of snakes, lizards, bunnies, and things like that. I would highly recommend this store.

I'd like to state first that this place improved under the previous management, despite what the ownership gave them to work with. Then said management was removed and replaced, and the business has been downhill ever since. The current

I My first experience at Fins and Critters was pleasant. I was happy with the price I got for a grey chinchilla so I decided to special order from them instead of shopping with another store in the future. Well after special ordering a second chinchilla I have decided I am no longer going to do business with them. They have refused to refund the money I paid in advance for the chinchilla that hasn't arrived more than two weeks past the initial delivery date. I was not informed at the time of purchase that I couldn't get my money back ever. I am out $240 and I don't have anything to show for it. Furthermore I made it very clear that the chinchilla was a Christmas gift and I needed it before Christmas. It is now the 28th and it isn't expected in for over a week.

I have been a customer of Fins n' Critters since it's beginning. It has always been a good store, as good as any of the locally owned pet stores. They too have their ups and downs. I have always purchased good living fish and reptiles at fair prices. If you have a bad attitude and expect perfection, then you are the problem. It's a pet store more for the hardcore hobbyists. Try going to the big chain stores or Walmart, see what tha will get ya. Not much.
Any way, as of August 2010 it is under new ownership. The website has disapeared, so the store may go downhill too.

Gary needs to hire better employees. only good thing about this place is the fact that the crickets are cheap. Its better to go to petco or petsmart or just about anywhere else besides the dump that is called fins 'n critters. Its more like *hits 'n litters because that what it is. 0 out of 5 for this dump of a hole in wall. Bunch of arrogant sons of bitches as far as im concerned. His son is a tattooed wanna be tough guy that thinks of himself as someone special, what a joke. Good old fashion ass whooping will change that type of attitude immediately.

we went to this store to just kill time and look at the fish. There were dead fish in every tank, but the big atrocity was after spending 20 minutes or so there, we notice a snake slithering behind a tank. It was trying to crawl up and over the fish tank, and the lady that worked there laughed and said that a python had escaped and she wasn't able to catch it. So she was just letting it wander around the store. HORRIFIED! Wasn't doing anything to catch it, to notify customers, and her nonchalance of the escaped python makes me wonder what else is going on there with regards to taking care of the animals? Some poor old person is going to wander in one day to buy a fish for a great grandchild and have a heart attack when another escaped python slithers out from under the goldfish tank and scares him to death... Will they laugh then about it? Come on! That's just insane! How is it possible for a professional business to have snakes running about with nothing being done about it? And aside from that, it looked like it has been months since the fish tanks were cleaned and dead ones removed...

Fins and critters has a lot of things cheap, such as mice and rats and some animals, but they overcharge on some things like animal cages/ tanks. They're way overpriced compared to other places. And the store is really messy. There's trash everyone and ants and it smells like cigarette smoke on the inside.

I've been to this shop a few times since arriving in ABQ. A few times I have bought fish; some lived and some died. Today I went in and there was a whole tank of dying puffers, with two floating on top that had decayed so badly they were unidentifiable, along with another three in various degrees of decay. The remaining alive puffers were laying listlessly on the bottom panting, probably because the water quality was atrocious and they were not in brackish water. This place should be avoided on sheer principle...

I've been to this shop a number of times since arriving in ABQ. A few times I have bought fish here; some lived and some died. The tanks are dirty, there are dead fish in some of the tanks that have clearly been there a while (at least days), and the fish are not kept in the proper conditions for their species. When I have pointed out to them that they have fish together that come from completely different water conditions (not brain surgery, like, African Cichlids pH 8, with Severums pH 6) they simply replied that "nobody in ABQ pH's their water...", which I highly doubt. Today I went in and there was a whole tank of dying puffers, with two floating on top that had decayed so badly they were unidentifiable, along with another three in various degrees of decay. The remaining alive puffers were layig listlessly on the bottom panting, probably because the water quality was atrocious and they were not in brackish water. This place should be avoided on sheer principle...let alone if you actually wanted your new fish to live. It amazes me when people are so lazy that, in addition to not caring about the well-being of the animals, they don't even care that their inventory is dying and they are losing money...

Pros: Occassionally have interesting fish

Cons: Owners / workers clearly don't care about their pets - or the customers. Prefer to sit at the register and ignore both.

Fins and Critters is a good pet store. They have a fish, kittens, small animals and reptiles. They also carry pet supplies and specialize is fish tanks. They have anything and everything that you would need for a fish tank. They have a really great staff that is helpful at answering your questions. They have decent prices and a good location.
