That place sucks IMO, nothing but common tropicals and everything is way overpriced.

I honestly can't argue with those points. Its just the most local for me. Any other places in the Mchenry county area you could recommend?

I just went to Tropiquatics in Lombard and I love it. They had some fish that you don't run into too often like tons of philippine blue angels, ebrs, and mono argentus

Based on your post I made the one hour drive and I can say that I was not impressed at all. The stock was very cookie cutter with a few exceptions, the tanks were not clean, the prices were average to high, and not once was I asked by a employee if I needed help and I was passed by 3 of them without even a simple hello. So my review is don't waste your time, most local Petsmart have the same stock and better prices.

This was based on freshwater only, they do have a decent number of saltie tanks but I'll be honest I'm not educated enough on that to comment.
