Seascape Aquatics, Colorado Springs, CO

I just have to give this place a glowing review.

I've been to every LFS in Colorado Springs, and even a couple of Petsmarts and a Petco. This is by far the BEST, cleanest, most knowledgeable, best stocked freshwater fish supplier there is.

I went in today, and they had microrasboras, celestial pearl danios, endlers livebearers, and peacock gudgeons--things you don't often find in local stores. They were helpful and friendly and their tanks were impeccable.

Not only that, but their prices are relatively good. For reference-- 8.99 per celestial pearl danio, BUT they give bulk discounts! $60 for a Fluval Chi, which is about that online, or more. $10 for a medium sized bottle of Flourish Excel, which I've seen at $13 at an LFS.

They also carry NLS fish food (!!!) and have a pretty nice saltwater selection, as well, including a lovely display tank with a maroon clown incredibly bonded to some sort of huge coral.

If you're in Colorado Springs, DON'T bother with Fishy Business or Tropical Treasures (the first is dirty and not well-kept, schooling fish are apart and randomly assigned, and everything just doesn't look nice; the latter is almost all cichlids and is pretty sketchy too).

Beautiful livestock, knowledgeable, and with an incredible selection of ferts, foods (frozen too) and fish.

One thing I would say is that they do not sell AC filters, only powerheads. Still, for equipment, any old LFS works.

Too bad the Springs is so far for me, I love checking out new stores.

Just to up date the place is still wonderful all of the OP is still true the only issue I have is they won't trade in fish even if you bought it from them it's a little disappointing in that regard

Oh and Fishy Business is not out if business

Tropical Treasures is all mbuna and some oscars and a few angels but it's always dirty

And valley pets down in fountain colorado is by far the worse the first time I stopped by I was disgusted this place is a disgrace to the hobby never have I see a LFS this dirty in my life sick and dead fish in most of their tanks.

I stopped by here a second time just to take pictures but I was surprisingly impressed with the cleaning job they did still had some sick fish like oscars with hith and dirty tanks so in a couple of months I will be back and see how they are doing anyway here is some pics of valley pets Click image for larger version
