The manager here is rude. He talked him self out of a definite 600.00 sale. And refused to consider what could have been a thousand dollar phone call.\r
I would suggest a different pet shop.\r
An attitude like this tells me he is not

Very upset with this store. Went here for a while for saltwater fish and corals and bought quite a few over the past year. Never had a problem until I had to return one because it got sick and died. Asked employee if the fish's behaviour

First impressions from the outside leave you wondering if ya should get out of your car. Inside it's all about selection and they definitely have it. Prices are excellent and I found no item more expensive then if purchased online.

I don't live near this store and drove the distance to come here based on a word of mouth referral through a friend. To me, the service is worth the drive.

The staff was courteous, attentive and prompt. They were able to make

The fish place has been the best place to get fish. They now have three rooms of fish and another room of tanks and accessories. In the Saltwater room, they have a giant 2000 gallon freshwater aquarium built into the wall with very large fish. Their fish are very healthy. I go to this store 2-3 times a week just to look at all the new fish that they are constantly getting and most of the time I do not find any dead fish, unlike some other stores in the area where you can see the fish's bones through it's rotting body.

The staff is very knowledgeable if you ask them questions. Also, the employees are very friendly and treat customers they recognize as friends (if the store isn't flooded with customers at the time). If you point out a fish you want, they will try harder than most other stores to catch that fish for you.

They carry just about any kind of fish you can think of. Even most of the oddball fish.

Their prices are low compared to other stores, they pay more for your fish and they take care of what they do have. If you are ever in the Buffalo/Western New York area you cannot miss a stop at this store between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY.

Also, do not forget to see their massive 2k gallon aquarium in the saltwater section!

I have shopped at The Fish Place for over 20 years, since they were a 1 room operation, but the past few years, they have gotten too big to treat people as individuals and it's all about the dollar now. No personal touch, they rush you, and almost never net the fish of your choice , unless they can net in less than a minute. Due to extensive feeding costs, they feed about half the required foods, and the weaker fish usually get none. Look carefully, they purposely keep the fish hungry so they are apt to come to you when you look at the tank, but, many of the fish have been without food long enough to get a sunken in belly, which is a risk of death if not treated properly.

I was even treated rudely one sunday, when half the staff seemed stoned. I have to say, the past few months, some of these issues have improve, but they still treat customers like a number, even a customer that has shopped there longer than most of their workers have been out of diapers.

If you want to browse a vast selection of fish and even see a built in 2000 gallon aquarium, stop in and enjoy, but don't expect to be shown a lot of respect, unless you're buying a lot.

For that old fashioned personal touch, talk to the folks at Markheims, where I have also shopped the past 20 years or so.

A careful shopper who doesn't care if they're treated ignorantly, and who has no questions, can find a healthy fish at The Fish Place, and many times, a selection of hard to find species, and large quantities if desired. Just be careful and don't buy the fish with the sunken bellies.

Whether you are looking to start your new fish hobby or maintain it, this is the place to visit.
The staff KNOW their fish and will advise you. This is especially important if you are just starting out.
They have a large healthy selection of both freshwater and saltwater fish. They also have a section dedicated to outside water gardens.
You wouldn't purchase your tires at the supermarket, so why purchase your fish at the common pet place that doesn't have a clue what they are selling.
Don't miss the display aquarium they have set up ! So big you could almost scuba dive in it : )

Outside from the zoo, I have never seen so many different kinds of fish. With an extensive selection of both freshwater and saltwater fish you will be able to find what you need here. The staff is friendly, but sometimes is not the most helpful. After explaining how one of my fish was sick, a store employee told me he was not sick with what I thought and I couldn't do anything about it. In the end, she turned out to be wrong and my fish lived after getting medicated food elsewhere. Overall a great store, even if you aren't looking to buy it is fun to just go and look.

PROS: Great selection
CONS: last time some tanks had fish that had been dead for some time

This is loaded with so many varieties of fish. If you are looking for some knew fish for your tank this is the place for you. The staff is very knowledgeable if you have concerns about dealing with issues with your tank or your fish. They have recommended medications for my fish when I had a situation where a number of these fish were ill. They really saved the day.
