You don't care
The place isn't that cool. The owner is nice but the kids he has working for him are lazy and would rather sit around than take care of the gorilla crabs eating their acro's, cleaning out dead fish, or helping out customers in the store. Oh and sometimes prices come out of thin air.

naw i know, and understand, ive gotten worse from members, the verdicts is still out to be seen, but like i said jon is going to be involved again and things were pretty good when he was before, nothing runs the same if the boss isn't around, and it's nothing against the guys who worked there.

I was up there this week, everything was brand new! Clean, and well stocked shellfish the tanks were very nice. Look, I have seen higher end stores, but in the end, you will pay higher prices! every sale goes through a new DELL POS system, lets just hope for the best, and give them the benefit of the doubt, it will be another good source for live stock!

Hi everyone. I listen to all comments, good and especially bad. I've put alot of work into trying to create a great LFS to go to. Its all of the things that I wasn't able to do with the old place. There's no way to satisfy everyone. I also agree that the store was not the same without me there, but I had no choice at the time. All I can do is my best to make the store a pleasant and positive experience with a large selection of stock at a reasonable price.
I'm always open to suggestions. If you ever want to see it, I'm almost always there trying to get it all finished.

I just wanted to add that Fishtopia is a great store, I go there often when im in the area. The store is very clean and the staff are very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and helpful.

John and Fishtopia has been very helpful to HVRKs, organizing group buys, doing special orders, and also even hosting a group meeting recently. Check out this store, it has great saltwater equipment, huge coral selection, and tons of fish.

Check it out Fishkill is a great town.

I've been to the old store and the new store and talk to john about his workers i was there with my wife and kids and his workers act like i was bothering them. It took them 10 min. before they even realized we were even in the store. Cust. service is the number one priority, and they do not even scratch the surface in that area. They lost my business and word of mouth is everything!
