Fish stores

I was wondering if anyone knew of any good fish stores in Northwest Ohio, Lima, Findlay, Toledo areas. I'm asking because I really want to get some shrimp for my aquarium, but don't want the 12 for 1.99 ghost shrimp (although they are cool, I already have some and want something different) Thanks

I'm not from that part of the state, but if you are ever in Cols, you can try Aquarium Adventure on Sawmill. A bit pricey, but they'd probably have something you'd like.

Thanks I've looked on there, and there seem to be quite a few in Toledo. Maybe I'll make a trip some day and just go to all the different fish stores That could be fun...

I just recently went there and purchased 2 Opaline Gourami's and 4 White Clouds. Very nice people and VERY clean place. Was really impressed with their selection.

"We currently have over 300 freshwater fish tanks and that's not including the 300 Holding tanks we have "behind the scenes."

That's quite true. They will be the place I go to for more fish in the future.

Found a new place.

Gary's Tropical Fish located in Maumee, OH. Lovely little place with a very nice selection of harder to find fish. Prices are reasonable as well.

I'll second both Trilby's and Gary's. I haven't bought from either of them yet since I don't have my tank set up yet, but I've seen enough stores to know good from bad. Gary's is only about a mile from my work and I've stopped in a couple times for some free advice. He actually has more saltwater than fresh, but everything looks clean and healthy. Gary himself is very friendly and helpful... just my 2 cents!

I just wanted to add that there is a new Jack's Aquarium & Pet store in Findlay; I believe that it just opened on Aug. 12. It's in a strip mall at the Rt. 224 exit off of 1-75. Being new, everything looks clean and well kept, but at least the aquariums did look good. They also have a wide size of tanks on display... from 2.5 gallon to 125!

I may stop by the new Jack's Aquarium shop soon. Did you notice if they were carrying German Blue Rams yet? I know Trilby has some but they are like $12-$14 each (can't remember exactly).

Gary's fish are top notch. Haven't lost one fish I've purchased from him.
