Need to find a fish store

Live in Rockford Illinois. I need to find a dedicated fish only store. Not a petco, petland, petsmart, etc kind of store. A real fish store were people know what they are talking about and plenty of selection. Does anyone know of a place??

I've have purchased a few fish during their sales and has always had good luck, but they are probally the best shop in out area for fish, dry goods, and supplies.

Yeah, I agree. You just gotta be careful. Their yearly half off sale can't be beat!
