Joe - that was his name. I think I called him every other "J" name (Jim, John) except for the right one. LOL.

After joe was gone i never ran into anyone working there who had any idea about the fish they were selling. I pass by Animal Pantry often so If I notice it's open I will let you know.

I drove past this weekend and the store was open and they had a big red "Sale" sign in the window. I didn't get a chance to stop in to see if they were just doing renovations or open for business.

I just went this weekend, they were minimally stocked but said they will be recieving shipments this week. They used to have the better prices on the Island.

Were they set up for salt water? Just with no livestock? Or not even salt water tanks?

I've been disappointed in this store under the previous owner. Very limited saltwater/reef. Poor lighting in previous reef tank.

I shouldn't ask so many questions. I should stop by and look.

We should all stop by and let the owners know we are interested in saltwater. Maybe buy some drygoods to show we are serious.

I stopped by last night. It is the same SW setup as the provious owner with better overhead lighting but no tank lighting. He had very limited livestock but said he would be growing the SW section. We will wait and see.
