Statenis

Decent prices and better than most quality livestock at Aquatic Obsessions. If you go the other route into the city definitely check out Manhattan Aquariums. Only thing I really hate about living on the Island is having to pay a toll no matter which way I go.

Hylan got salt because they transfered the manager from the mall one over to Hylan believe me tanks look clean because they've only been up a few weeks look back in a year and they'll be kept exactly the same as the one at the mall.

Ah I understand
Someone should open a decent store on SI with fair prices, not like animal kingdom.

Businesses in general do not survive in staten island it's so isolated from the rest of the world. No one is going to go there from anywhere else to go to a fish store. Especially w/ the high toll and it's going up to 15 from what I hear so that alone is going to eliminate everyone else in the surrounding boroughs. I don't think the 20 or so reefers on here that live in si which are probably close to the total amount in existence are enough to support a store with all the overhead that is involved. Which is why every store that has been there goes out of business. The only pet stores that survive out there is pet land and pet smart and it's mostly because they sell everything pet related. A big majority of their sales is dog and cat accessories and food.

Animal Pantry used to have a decent FW and SW section but it has gone downhill since Jimmy left but most of their business is dog and cat food.
