Fins and Skins – Exotic Pet Store | Pinellas Park Florida
I never, well almost, post reviews on the web, but just had to give this store a big thumbs up. Paul, the proprietor knows all about freshwater tropical fish, and will give get you started with an aquarium set up, test your water, recommend fish, etc. Very down to earth guy, who clearly loves what he's doing. Lots of cool fish, plants, snails, and all sorts of things you never thought were fresh water, like shrimp! Okay, I'm waiting for him to open today to take my kids for a look see, a water test, and a couple new fish. How did I no know about this place before? Just found out about Westside a few weeks ago when we decided to start up an aquarium. We bought the aquarium set up from Craigslist, and then went to Paul for the rest. They do sell pumps, and accessories, but fish are the main thing there. Thank you Paul! (Just checked my review, and see that I've "moved" to San Francisco, despite physically continuing to reside in South Tampa. Gotta love the internet.)
