This is really a terrific pet store. I have been buying fish here for years and I've never had one die yet. So unlike other stores I've been to where at least 25% of the fish die within 24 hrs. The fish tanks at the store are extremely clean, as are the cages for all of the animals. The other reviewer was right - no pet store smell because the owners keep the place so clean. Yes, the lights are dim, but that is for the benefit of the animals. How would you like to live under bright lights all day long? The owner is very friendly and helpful and the prices are very reasonable. Not as glitzy as those chain stores, but I'd choose this place first any day.
