It's a very small place. He does sell some fish, and though the inside of the shop is not real pretty to look at (neither is the outside
), the tanks look healthy, unlike many pet stores' tanks. And they have other pets as well. Some reptiles (I think it's his niche), rats, a bird or two, maybe some kittens, but mostly fish and some equipment. I've even seen small discus in there. Not a large selection of fish, but worth looking at. (Not a Jack's, but the prices aren't, either!) Nothing in there will cost you top dollar. He had a sale on 55 gallon glass tops (Versa Top or a similar brand) and I think they sold for just over $25. Usually they cost more, even there. I hit it at the right time but now I wished I had bought more than one!
Some days there won't be much used equipment in there, and other times he has too much. Don't go there to sell him used equipment--he buys really cheap--but he doesn't sell for much, so it's a good place to buy used stuff from. He might also have filters and such but I never asked or looked. I've seen some people bring power filters in to sell him but I didn't notice if he bought them or not.
His food prices, like frozen brine shrimp, are much less costly than the typical shops but are the same brands.
The dad, who used to own the shop and seems to be there to help out, will talk your ear off but he can build a pretty nice tank stand for you if you want one or have an odd sized tank. He's good for some stories. I don't know if they are true or not--I'd suspect not--but they're entertaining.
