Best Goldfish pet store in Houston, TX - Yelp

A while back, I blogged about the Demise of Mom & Pop Fish Stores and the impact on our business. That blog received a number of responses. One response was private. It was from the owner of AquaZoo in Houston (okay, between Houston and Galveston). Prosper, the owner, emailed me to point out that not only was his Mom & Pop store thriving but that I’d used a photo of his store and misidentified it as the now closed Amazonia in Austin. I looked through our photo files and found that of course he was right. I promised to blog a correction. Well…I’m finally getting around to that.

This is one of the best tropical and marine water fish stores in West Houston

Aquazoo provides both healthy fish and expert advice to its customers and it is thriving as a result. It probably helps that Aquazoo is in one of the largest metro areas in the country with a large population of fish-keepers available. Houston has always had a strong retail sector. I remember in college driving to Houston with a friend once a month to sell killifishes and tour the stores to see what was going on in the hobby. Online shopping doesn’t offer the same opportunity to browse through live fish and picking out one that actually is what you want. Online shopping rarely lets you look through the fish and pick one. The photos are often of superior fish and not the sales items.
