Awesome LFS!!

I had the opportunity to visit the largest LFS I have ever set foot in today. I am on business in the Milwaukee area and had some time to kill so I looked up an LFS I use to frequent when I lived here. The place is called Hoeffer's tropical life Pets.

I was suprised to find out they had upgraded and built their own building the size of a discount store. It was amazing walking in the front door. They have everything to include large turtles and baby alligators(not for sale). Their fish room is emaculate and includes over 350 tanks with displays and about 1/4 is SW which even included an octopus. They have an entire aisle devoted to Discus.

I recall them always having a large assortment of plants, but I have never seen as many plants as I did today.

They even had an out door pond area outdoors with large ponds and plants.

Best part is their staff are super knowledgeable. I recognized the fish manager from 5-6 years ago when I use to frequent their old location. I spoke to him briefly and he said they have grown to the 2nd largest independent in the nation.

Prices for the most part are average, but the cleanliness, professionalism and knowledgable staff would make it worth it even if they were higher which they are not.

I would encourage anyone visiting the Milwaukee area to stop in just to check it out.

They are located near the corner of 76th and Good Hope on the north side of Milwaukee.
