Run from NY aquatic

Just hoping to have others avoid what I wen thru. Stay far, far, far away from NY aquatics.

The cheap prices lured me in, and man will I never do that again. The last 11 fish I’ve had, 3 from him dead, within gaurantee window, and he is not honoring it whatsoever.


Gem tang dead in two days, was fairly skinny upon death, highly doubt it became emancipated in me. 400 bucks too a chance, but a dead fish ain’t worth 4 cents.

I've had some issues from there.



However I've had excellent luck with many fish from Jawz which is at 75 N Saw Mill River Rd, Elmsford, NY 10523. This shop is a few miles from the county center in westchester, which is on the bronxriver parkway. It's very good to ask how long the fish has been in the shop. If it looks very healthy and they've had it for weeks your good to go. It's worth it to pay a little more and get quality. Not crazy prices just a bit more.

No fish store can guarantee disease free, this is why it’s important to qt and treat them.

My 2 cents...

My Recently purchased Gem fortunately is doing well. Looked a little skinny initially and got beat up a bit by my purple and Achilles but he’s eating like a pig and doing well.

I think we should clear some things up because for a second even I questioned who you were talking about.

There are two stores which might confuse people. One is New York REEF Aquatics. They are in flushing. I have been there many times and have never had a single problem with fish or corals... They are a great group of guys. It is one of two places I shop at and recommend.

Then there is NY Aquatics which is in Yonkers. I have never been there or purchased from them. Therefore I can not comment.

Saltykid85 can you please confirm this and possible make not in the original post because I would hate for people to get the wrong idea about NYRA. Then Vashawn possible remove the link.
