FYI A Pet Warehouse has opened at the old Aquarium Adventure Location in Carle Place.Believe they opened in March 2011. They have rearranged the store somewhat but have maintained most of the tanks . Prices seem to have dropped for the AA days. I enjoyed my visit

In the Greenacres mall in Valley Stream you have a Petsmart, Petco, Petland Discounts (lost their lease to an expanding walmart) and are all within a mile of each other.
Plus a second Petland Discounts (not too bad actually) in Oceanside.

I also had great experiences at aqua hut in coram and think I encountered the same teenager @ magic isle.
Two more places: country critters in patchogue..nice selection but a little pricey and Brian's in rocky point.

Wow, I'm literally right across the street from parrots of the world. I can see it from my window and I've never been in there, thought they only sold parrots.
I went in there today and it turns out that the guy who is always on news 12 and has his own tv show is the owner! I was talking to him for a bit, nice guy.

It has a decent fish section, which is contrary to the name of the store.

He picked out my Ferret who just died after almost 9 years....He knows his stuff and is very helpful. My vet highly recommended getting any animal from that pet store. I was told they use highly regarded breeders. My ferret was healthy as an ox until he just didn't wake up one day a few months ago

Brians Tropical in Rocky Point seems to be the best. High prices but good stock and Brian always goes out of his way to help you and give you advice. Great store that has been around for a long time.

Aquahut in Coram is also good to. Great prices there.

Wont step foot into Magic Isle in Centereach. Last time I went in there I seen numerous tanks with dead fish just lying around. Prices are outrageous in there as well.

I didnt have a good experience at Fish Town USA this past Saturday. I was willing to spend a few hundred dollars on a whole new 40g breeder tank setup with live plants and everything. I was in there for over an hour walking around trying to get a hold of someone, and I couldnt grab anyones attention. My girlfriend and I walked out pissed. I really wanted to start up a tank, but I'm not going to beg people to take my money.

I was in there about a month ago for the second time ... the first was back in Feb and that store has absolutely NO BARBS!!... uh???? The place must have what ... DOZENS of tanks ... of all sizes and NO BARBS? Well ... I shouldn't say that ... I did see 1 rather large Denison Barb in a tank. But ... if you want cardinal tetras ... there's at least 2 tank full.

As a personal request ... if anyone happens to come across an LFS that has
5 Banded Barbs could you shoot me a PM.
