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
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.
