That Fish/Pet Place - Lancaster PA

Usually 3-4 different species of dart frogs and just about every supply imaginable - the store is the size of a Lowes, no joke.

If you sign up for their email blasts and store card it is by far the cheapest store around. I just went the other day and got two new zoo meds and a bunch of soils to make a new soil mix. You can by bags of jungle mix (fir, cypress, sphagnum) and terrarium mix (ground fir, cocos, sphagnum) in ~20 lb bags. It is like a Lowes of pet stores with discount prices. Because of the coupons and sales I got two 18x18x24 in Zoo meds for $85 or 90 each, which is $25 or $30 less than Petsmart and Petco. As for the pdf's, the last few times I was there, the pumilio were looking shakey. I was tempted to say something...

They employ people who are members of forums and get a large % of frogs from local breeders. Yeah, sometimes the frogs are a little small or maybe thin, but tanks are pretty clean and well made and much better livestock than your average pet store.

There tanks are nice and overall the place is good, and is no doubt better than the big box pet places. The staff is friendly, they have the best selection of products that I have ever seen in one place, and the prices are good. Don't want anybody to get the wrong idea, all in all a good place

It was 'just' a fish place when I knew them back in the 80's

But man have they grown....and done it well too.

Who says business in America is dead ?

I've been there a few times. They're thing back about 5-10 years ago was that they're the largest pet store on the east coast. If you're into fish, they're 100% the place to go. They have by far the largest selection of fresh and salt water fish I've seen outside of a fish farm. I've never bought reptiles from them but was always impressed at how nice everything looked in their reptile room. From what i've seen in my years of travels to pet stores, the larger the store, the worse off their animals are but not the case here.

I have seen items for sale by them on Amazon.com and I believe Ebay. I typically do not purchase from vendors outside of Amazon as I have had 50/50 results. I think I will give them a try.
Later and Happy Frogging,
