there's a store in Yonkers (Central Ave) that i've heard that carries a lot of stuff at pretty decent prices, i'm not sure of the name though
Yeah SI stay away from exotic pets warehouse in yonkers, they have to be one of the worst stores I have ever seen, they sell sick fish (tried to sell me a scratched tank for full price then when I noticed it he was like that's nothing). I had bought fish from him in the past but nothing ever lasted more that a week and his rock and corals are infested with pests. Go to Jawz2 in elmsford, greenwich aquaria or house of fins in Greenwich or you can go to any one of the wonderful vendors here.
Over 10 years ago I had a saltwater store on East Tremont. Would not mine doing it again...
Jason you would be suprised how many hobbyiest are actually in our area...
Devious, this is a Bronx, New York thread. So I'm gathering that the conclusion is there are no reputable aquaria stores in the Bronx. Go to Greenwich, CT but expect to pay increased prices. :splitspin
Me myself, I have a fairly stocked tank with some decent live-stock, mostly all purchased from members personal tanks & our great vendors.
$ is not an object if I want something, but you wont see me in CT, unless I'm window shopping or getting something rare.
We can go on forever on which place sucks or are overpriced, etc.....but this thread was intended to list LFS for BX'ers.
Devious, definitely agree with your on window shopping lol.
There is no real SW store in the BX and to be honest I do think there will be a good sw store. It is tough now and days with high rents, electric bills hitting the roof, etc here in the BX. I know because I have a store in the BX.
If you want sw fish, we do have one advantage, we have a vendor here on MR called NYAQUATIC(Michael Stern). One thing I will say is, most of my live stock (fish) came from there and I have had a 99% survival rate with him and will continue to shop from there.
I have visited the other stores out of the area in one of my journeys, maybe picked up a piece here and there, but would certainly not go out of my way to go there...
