Aqua Scapes in Charlottesville from their facebook page.

Hey all- I wanted to add this store to this forum, I hope that's OK (mods?).   There is a very cool little shop in Charlottesville tucked into the bottom corner of a very modern looking building on Druid Avenue. Once you get off 64 on Rt. 20, go slow or you'll drive right by it.   Small, but for it's size, there is an impressive selection of both marine and freshwater livestock (including discus and corals), dry goods, and accessories in here, as well as a couple of consignment tank setups.   I stop by after work and get my RODI water here for changes on my nano reef.  I've gotten livestock here also, which has done well.  Both freshwater and marine livestock inventories are quite extensive- there's a LOT in this very small shop.  So look around!

The huge planted FW display tank (120 gal, I think), and monster Reef display tank are both just awesome.  I'll try to get some pics on my next visit.  They are the only remaining privately owned fish store in Charlottesville.

Like other small shops, they run an outside tank maintenance business also.  Web address is above, and they also have a Facebook page.

Thanks, DL!  Not only is it okay, it's great.  I will add the facebook link and pull a photo of the shop front from their gallery, and add that to what you have above.
Sounds like a place worth visiting.

All,

On the way to Lynchburg to PAWS if you pass through Charlottsville (close to exit on 64 -- less than a mile) is Aquascapes the only LFS in the town.

The owner is active on Facebook and does communicate with you.  I have ordered and purchased fish from them.  This store opened from the owners' maintenance business.

Lots of pictures on Facebook and the website.

I'm so sorry to hear of any fish store closing their doors. It gives hobbyist one less place to visit and shop, jobs are lost and shop owners not profiting from their business... Sad  
Thanks Steve for sharing with us. It's better to know than not know... Cool
