Good products and selection, but EXPENSIVE!

posted 5 years ago

The store is nice, they have a good selection, and their animals look healthy. However, everything is VERY expensive. As in, roughly twice as much as most pet stores charge.

Additionally, their bettas are kept in TINY bowls. Yes, I understand that bettas need to be kept in cups in pet stores for convenience and space issues, and I have absolutely no problem with that as long as the cups are kept clean (as they appear to be at this store). However, besides these cups being particularly small, they also display and sell bettas in tiny tiny little fish bowls that are filled halfway with gravel, giving each fish about 1/4 or 1/2 cup of water. I have a fishbowl like that at home. I keep MOSS in it. That's right, it's not even big enough for a real PLANT, let alone an animal. That they would suggest that an animal can be kept in such a small space is disgusting. The fish tanks they sell for bettas aren't much bigger, and are what we in the betta hobby refer to as "deathtraps."

So, while it's a nice enough store, and fine if you have money to burn, between the horrifically high prices and the disgustingly small cramped conditions that they keep my favorite type of fish in, I won't be shopping there ever.

Pros: Good selection, clean conditions

Cons: Horribly expensive, bettas kept in terribly small containers
