We took it pretty hard when Fish Gallery was devastated by a fire last year; as renovations dragged on and on, we feared they might remain closed forever. But when after several months they reopened the fish showroom, we were glad they had put in the extra time and effort. The new space is attractive, and they even added a restroom. Sure, they're not the cheapest joint in town, but you'll never get the same service and knowledgeable staff at a big-box store. Their aquatic plant selection is excellent, and African cichlid-keepers already know that Fish Gallery is the place to go. If you're just getting started, it's OK to go to Petsmart. We bet Fish Gallery will still be around when you're ready to swim with the big boys.
