The store is great, not only are the fish competitively priced the store is also very informative. Owned by a man who has been in the business for 50 years and his son who has grown up with fish, it was voted most informative by the town. All the employees have fish-keeping experience and know a great deal about the fish. The store has a wide variety of fish, but especially has a very large Cichlid selection from Africans to new world Cichlids. it also has salt water selections, from all sorts of tangs and clownfish to eels, to triggers, plus live rock and corals for the reef tank. It also has the community fishes, all sorts of tetras, show quality guppies. rainbow also has pond fish, and while its not a very big store it has a wide variety of species.
We find the staff very helpful, knowledgeable and very accommodating to
the new or old aquarist. They know both the common name and scientific names,
as well as all the different species needs, habitats and breeding requirements
for both fresh and saltwater. They are a family-owned store and that is
how your are treated when you walk in - like family. The Pet Shanty is a
large store covering everything from fish, small pets, birds, cats/dogs
to pet and pond supplies. They have 2 locations, one in Scotch Plains (the
one we go to) and another in Bayonne. Go to this shop if you want the personal
care and attention you, the consumer, deserve.
About a week ago, I went to Seatopia Aquatics (a store listed in your site)
to buy some fish to complete the load of my tank. I have my tank for two years
since cycled and I have never had a problem, except for two aggressive betas
that were killing other fish. Two or three days after I placed the new fish,
I noticed the symptoms of ich in some of the newcomers. A week after, all
the population is infected -even my old ones- and I have tried to deal with
the outbreak. I have already lost 3 fish. I went to the store trying to get
some clues. I observed the tanks over there and I saw many dead fish, as well
as the presence of ich in some of their tanks. Then, having clear the origin
of the disease, I explained the manager what happened and I requested him
for some kind of agreement. I specifically asked for us to share the value
of the medication and for the new fish to replace the dead ones, as soon as
the outbreak is controlled. It seemed pretty reasonable for me, as it is clear
that his fish were contaminated and sharing the value means only that he would
not profit but it will not have any cost for him. He laughed and just showed
me a signal: no warranty on livestock. The lack of respect and responsibility
from this store is outrageous and I feel my duty to inform other customers,
not to say you shouldn't be listing them.
