LFS in Daytona to Deltona: Central FL

I have been struggling to find a reputable store somewhat locally. Big box stores are just not doing it for me.

I've been to "pets 4 less" in deland and wasnt impressed. Great LR but the fish and employees..eck

I get all my cichlids from daytona aquarium and have no problems getting them.

it's the sw stores that I need. The only local one, pets 4 less keeps pushing me to put damsels in my tank and they lose big points for just that.

Thanks fellow floridians. I know theres some somewhere. lol

Not sure what part of Deltona you are from, and not sure how far you are willing to travel, but... Fishy Business. It is in Longwood on Ronald Reagan Blvd. They have some really nice stock and I always get very healthy fish there. Hope this helps

I just went to a lfs around the corner from fishy business and let me tell you it's cheap and nice!!! Its' called oceans direct and its literally around the corner from fishy. I got some real nice size corals for the price of small frags. The fish look really good too and clean store. They have like everything in there.

Thought I'd share since I know alot of people pass that store by on the way to Fishy. LOL

Thanks for letting us know that. I have always wanted to stop there, but usually had livestock from fishy that I needed to get home.

I haven't lived in Daytona in 22 years. Ughh I'm old. But there used to be a place near Mainland high school. It looked like the building was going to fall down, but they had the best fish for sale I'd ever found in the area. They had concrete tubs in their "back yard" for breeding.

Anyone know if that place is still around? Just curious.
