Hadn't been to papa jims in a while and we decided to go today. At first walk in, everything is nice and clean. I will admit they do take good care of their fish. I wouldn't know if they are knowledgeable because we were never asked to be helped, or even greeted for that matter. When we got to the back where they have their small pets I was disgusted. The kittens had no water and looked miserable. The puppies had no water or food, and were reduced to sit on crumpled newspaper. 50 or more parakeets in one cage. I won't be returning here again. And for the record I work at petsmart. And we have certain people, like myself, who work in the pet care department. Our tanks are cleaned and gravel vacuumed every week.

This fish store has friendly people who are fairly knowledgeable. the prices are fair, but they do not have a large variety of fish unless you only have a 1-30 gallon tank then this place is great for you. It is still a place I would gladly recommend over the likes of Petsmart, Walmart (if there is even a Walmart that still carries fish), Petco, Polly's Petshop, Petland, or any place of that nature. A good reason is they specialize in fish whereas other places I have aforementioned might have the dog guy decide to come to the fish department and tell you how great a Oscar will get along with your Betta. After all I still buy fish from this place from time to time so there is no way it could be anything but a good place to buy fish in my opinion. As previously mentioned in the first review all the fish are healthy and the tanks are well kept.

I?ve owned several tanks with different types of fish but my favorite are the freshwater cichlids. This place has a variety of fish that are not too pricey. They?ve recently added lizards and snakes to their pets. The place is not a big one, but it?s a friendly and peaceful environment and their staff is very helpful. I go there once a week to check out their new pets and really?. I just love to look at all the fish!

Great selection on fish here. The people have alot of information on fish and dont mind helping you out. They also have supplies and food for sale. The prices were good and the fish were healthy. The tanks were clean and there were not alot of dead fish floating like some chain stores have. The fish I got have been happy and healthy.
