If this is the store in King George then it belongs in the Central section.

That said, I wonder if this store is still open.
Here is Linda Birdwell's letter/application to win the Dough to Grow Award for small businesses:
http://www.doughtogrowaward.com/romping-stomping-pets-and-aquatics/

Websites for the store seem to be down or not maintained and there is no information available. Comments posted on other fish forums indicate that the store was still open in July of 2012 but that something changed in October of 2012. They say the store has not been open during posted business hours.

If anyone in King George knows what's going on with this store, please post here.

I went into this store in the January time frame. I dont really know what to say about it.

The fish tanks looked to be in abysmal condition, their excuse was hired help that didnt show up while the owner was out on vacation for two weeks. however, the fish seemed in good health and they were looking to rid themselves of most of the fresh water community fish, so I negotiated an awesome price. I got 6 mature gold pristella tetras for $10, and they are still alive and beautiful and large today. They had a few harder to find species which was nice, but very little selection.

They did carry some nice peices of drift wood and I would argue that all prices are negotiatble. However, I have not been back since and dont know the conditions of things.

Yellowpages.com lists the store as closed.
