The area is great... There are lakes and rivers all over the place... Also there are many things to do downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis..... As far as fish go I'm not to familiar with any great fresh water shops... I know there are a few petcos and petsmarts around.... Some times those are alright....

I'm fairly new to owning an aquarium and having fish, but I've read a lot on this forum as well as another and heard positive comments about World of Fish. They are located off Cedar Avenue and 66th by the MSP airport. Been to the store a few times and the staff are very helpful. It's a great store with a lot of varieties of fish - freshwater, saltwater and ponds. I highly recommend this store and just picked up a couple of Pineapple Swordtails this afternoon.

i just found a pretty decent lfs in champlin mn called terre quatics they have loads of live plants and there prices are decent. much better than the big box stores for sure and the people that work there are super friendly and know there stuff.

only downside is they have weird hours and are closed somedays...

520 Jefferson Hwy N (<p>Corner of 169 and Dean Ave</p>)
Champlin, MN 55316

WOOT WOOT!!!! 3 CHEERS FOR MINNESOTANS!!!! XD

I know a great store in east side saint paul where you can trust REAL healthy fish and VERY unique freshwater plants. It might be a "bit" pricy BUT ITS WORTH IT

This store is a small store located in a very small building with many other stores. Its like a small mall with 10 stores in it.
There's not a lot of varieties of fish because this store was mostly meant for betta fish but there are fish like guppies, tiger barbs, etc. but dont expect too much out of it~ This store is also VERY qualitated because the fish in the store are seperated by gender so you won't have to worry about any females getting pregnant.

The owner of this store is very trusty, i mean, i asked him if he has any platies, he doesnt, but he was happy enough to look for healthy ones for me, he eventually didnt find any, but he still did look for any fish for me that he doesnt have in his tank, so i really reccomend his shop, but beware, he does not sell any huge tanks because of the size of his store, but still, his store is a trusty place. And you can e-mail him anytime you want and he will e-mail you back during his work hours.

You can also find the most rarest bettas in his place if you happen want to look for bettas, like halfmoons, over halfmoons, there are some dragon bettas, and all of the kind. Will be pricy, but will be worth it if you manage to care for the bettas for long years.

The building that the store is in will be hard to find, but will be worth it, you just have to take the stairs downstairs until you find him, or just search around the place.

The building is a blue-ish kind of building with a yellow bricked entranced door.

Here's a picture of the building,

Here is the website of his shop, his location will be found in the website.
The Betta Shop - The Betta Shop

This store has such good quality fish, i wonder why this store is not so popular.

Anyways, good luck looking for the fish you want in there!!!!

And if you want to, you can always look for petsmart and petcos online.
