Rare "fish shop" visit. Lots of pics of fish I couldn't afford XD
I rarely, RARELY ever go to fish shops. Four times a year max, I go to fish auctions with about the same frequency though so it evens out a little. I stopped by a long established shop called A World Of Fish about 5 minuets from the Minneapolis/St. Paul International airport. I was mainly in the area to pick up some people on a incoming flight, but hey might as well kill some time since this shop is about 40 minuets away. I took in about a dozen Endlers for credit and bought 4 ember tetras since mine have slowly started dwindling in numbers. Anyway, this shop is heated to 78*, has a import license, and holds 8,000 gallons, but isn't actually the biggest shop around here!
So pics since I don't mind taking pics of fish in shop tanks:lol:. Certainly not all quality shots. Too much going on so I left it on auto or macro and let my camera do most of the work. A lot of cool fish, one I don't even recognize. Along with your regular stuff.
I AM JEALOUS!!!! all the LFS's near my just have the easy to find species, nothing unique :(
Great pics! It looks like you had fun!! Which fish do you not recognize? I don't recognize the fourth pic down, what is that fish??

Edited the previous post. I think I got the ID now. No wonder it's familiar. Hey KYM! Kiss that one please!
wow lol I been there last time i went to the mall of america have you got to A world of fish in hermantown? so odd that you live so close!!
If you live nearby you should check out the Minnesota Aquarium Society. That is where most of my fish come from. There are 4-5 auctions a year that last like 8 hours..... There is the annual fish show in about a month out in Fridely. IDK if I will visit it this time, was a lot easier when it was in Bloomington:-?. Will most likely be at the auction in two months. I'll be over run with plants by that time.
that would be fun to go to the fish auction!! yea bloomington is closer to me also I want to visit all the fish stores in the area in 1 year i'd probly come home with about 30000 fish tanks with every type of fish i thought was cute or cool :/ but ill deff have to check out the fish auction sometime
