Comments: Austin Aquariums is a good sized specialty fish store with a good selection of marine and freshwater fish.  When you enter the store you are greeted with BIG tanks for sale and a fair selection of overpriced supplies.  To see the fish, you enter the darkened fish room where the presentation of the tanks is fairly attracted.  The tanks appear well maintained although it is not uncommon to see Ich in some of the tanks.   They have a reasonable selection of community fish, a small selection of new world cichlids and a good selection of Africans.  Although I am not a marine enthusiast they have a good variety of marine species as well.  The livestock prices are also quite high.  If the staff is knowledgeable, they don’t seem anxious to share that knowledge with me.  When I was considering getting a marine aquarium and I asked some questions about marine setups, they answered by trying to sell me on their marine classes.  Generally, I feel like their goal is to extract as much money from me as possible.  For this reason, I can’t recommend this store to aquarists of any level.
