Not bad for a LFS just 2 days open.

*Found a plant I had looked for a couple months then forgot about, then found here huge and healthy.
* Owner took the time to answer my tech questions in detail.

Great place , I'll definitely will be going back!

A bit surprised by a new store owner...

I contacted them to ask for a quote on a new 155 gallon aquarium. I received a reply from Cory stating that he would get back to me ASAP with a quote after he got in touch with the dealer.

It has been 1 week since this reply, and no return email or PM. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I followed up with him 2 x this week and still no reply... I am sorry to say, but this is not the way to earn business... Especially for a new store...

Already purchased the tank from another dealer.

I'm glad you were able to get a hold of a tank suitable for your needs. The problem here was that the wholesalers just brought in Deep Sea Aquatics and had not priced them yet. I only just recently got the price list as of Thursday. Unfortunately they didn't bring in the 2 aquariums you had requested and I was looking at what options were available.

In the end I'm glad you were able to find a tank that fits your needs. I apologize for not keeping better communication with you. It has been difficult for me to keep in contact with everyone while building the store.

This is Justin from Co-Op, it was great meeting you guys and everyone else I've met that I don't know the name of on here as I don't get to spend much time on the forums anymore. Thank you everyone that has had kind words to say about the shop, we're still getting things dialed in as far as the plants go and we're learning as we go for what to carry. If there is ever a specific plant(s) you're looking for please let me know or leave a note with Cory for me and I will try my best to hunt it down for you. I have quite the collection at home as well! Wink

Thank you all again for the kind words and looking forward to meeting more of you and seeing the ones I've already met as well!

Service: 6

So I took advantage of the long weekend to make the drive up to Edmonds to visit the new store. I love the cleanliness of the store and the attention to detail. The racks were nicely stained, with crown molding no less. The piping and electrical wires were well organized and barely visible.

Cory's done a great job with the store. It's well thought out so that one person can run the store easily. 10% automatic water changes, central pump, and a very low voltage draw that costs him next to nothing on the electricity bill.

The fish variety is decent, definitely more catered to the smaller variety with a couple of larger display tanks that can house more of the monsters folks love on this forum.

The plant varieties were decent as well, I would have probably walked out of there with the inclinata had I not already ordered 145 new stems last week. =)

I'd be interested to see him develop the shrimp racks, which will give me another reason to stop by.

Finally got to visit Cory's store. Beautiful setup...even a small sitting area up front for relaxing and watching the display tank. Hank was awesome to watch in action. The store has a very serene feel to it. Cory was great ... very helpful and informative regarding options and choices. Great selection of those harder to find items and locally made fish supplies. Beautiful wood/branches and Seiryu stone too. Lots of beautiful fish and plants to chose from. Well worth the trip to visit. We will definately return when we can.

His shop is really nice and great being it's like 10 minutes away from my house. I've grabbed a Big Ornate, WC Red Hump geo's, and some freebees on the last trip and all are doing good and look great.. I've know Cory for year and he's a very knowledgable guy, and knows his stuff. He's more than willing to answer any questions you have, and in great detail. Both times i've been in there he's been schooling someone..lol  Great job Cory, keep up the good work !! I'll def be back to check out his store again.. Smile

I love this place. I was going to give a 4 on price, because you can get things cheaper at places like Liems, but that's not really relevant... for the quality, these prices can't be beat. Also great prices on food, equipment and plants. My favorite plant I've bought there is the val, I think he might have some specific strain of it that stays really short and sends out runners like crazy. He always has new stuff, like the longfin albino bristlenose I got today for a steal. Also keeps getting more and more shrimp, which I know are hot.

Made our 2nd visit to Cory's shop yesterday.  His store makes me feel like I am in a living room instead of a fish store.  The tanks are beautiful and full of lovely, colorful fish.  I saw some stunning blue tailed tetras that I really wanted (alas no tank right now to fit them into).  Lots of great wood (snagged some) and plants where HUGE (also snagged).  Love this store.  So wish there was one like it over her on the East side.

Finally made a trek up North this past Saturday to see Cory.

Very nice store Cory, you definitely have the correct game plan for success.

Cory has amazing tanks and the fish are very healthy. Love Hank, he and his tank are amazing. My only complaint would be that he doesnt carry the Cichlids which is what I am into. But I completely understand why. Smile But he did say that he will order them in if ever I ever wanted any. Very nice store.

My wife came up with me and she is a non fish person but she loved the fact the place was clean, organized and did not smell. Cory is very friendly, knowledgeable and keeps up a beautiful store. Very highly recommended!

Edit 10/29/13: Wanted to add that the betta at the store had to be some of the best I had ever seen. Not cheap but also not the junk you find at the big box pet stores. I was very impressed.... It made me want to start up another (betta) tank.

The Co-Op was great. My wife and I were lucky enough to have the opportunity to see what all the hubbub was about. Great variety with fair prices. All the critters looked healthy and happy. Those finnex fixtures are pretty cool, much brighter than I expected. A few other customers while we were there and Cory was able to keep up with all of us. Smile

My girlfriend and I went in Saturday, as a sort of last ditch effort to find a place that really clicked with us. Having both had fair amount of experience with fish, but no experience with a planted tank before, Cory was absolutely amazing in explaining things out, and in general, just calming us down from over-thinking things.

The store is amazingly bright, clean, and well laid out. Cory is incredibly friendly, and after visiting pretty much every fish store in the greater Seattle area over the last two weeks, was the first person that explained things without trying to sound like a genius or talking down to us. As soon as he heard we had done our research and weren't stumbling into things, he jumped right to what we needed to know in terms of cycling and plant selection, rather than give us the whole song and dance we experienced at other locations.

On top of that, this is the one place that seems to have the Finnex Ray2 in stock, which was an absolute miracle. We had gone in circles over the last two weeks, having three different online retailers cancel our order for being out of stock of the 48" fixtures after the point of sale.

As for the fish themselves, we ended up buying some Rummy Nose Tetra to start our tank cycling, and Cory warned us that they would lose their coloration when stressed, but would regain it in a few days. Turns out it was closer to a few hours, and by that night their bright coloration had returned, and were quite active in their new home.

As an IT professional who works, lives, and dies on the internet, I don't think I can offer higher praise than the following:

Aquarium Coop made me glad I went to a brick and mortar store.

Hello, kinda boring afternoon so me and my Fience went over to Aquarium Co-Op. I have been to several hundred fish stores over the years. Cory place is a well thought out design with well lit tanks. The fish and plants all seemed to be in very healthy and of a high quality in both color and shape. Have to say I was a bit put off when I first struck up a conversation with Cory, but after a few moments that past and he was quite a joy to talk too. My fience really enjoyed his large puffer and Cory was kind enough to feed him for her Smile. I will make it a point to try and get out there at least once a month from now on!!

Hey, before we went to aquarium co-op I was losing interest in fish keeping and had battle after battle with trying to keep fish alive. I always felt jealous about how nice the fish in pet stores looked and their aquariums in general. After going to aquarium co-op I changed the way I take care of my fish. Now I have an aquarium I am proud of and think most (except for aquarium co-op) fish stores look a lot worse than my original opinion of them.

Can't beat the over all cost of quality in the fish. I get %10 off for being a GSAS member, and credits for plants I trim. The owners are a wealth of knowledge and don't mind discussing tech.

How many times do I get to rate this store...I love it.  Having visited many of the fish stores in the area now I can truly say that Aquarium Co-Op is one of a kind.  It is always clean, bright, welcoming, informative, and just plain fun to cruise around.  New tanks added since my last visit...so now even more selection.  No big cichlids but the store does a great job of offering variety even without these.  $1 a fish bargain tank with some wonderful fish in it. Beautiful plants as always.

And Hank gave me a kiss and told me how happy he was to see me (I just love him  I love you )

This store just gets better with age!
My only minuses are;
It's a bit hot and too quiet in this smaller retail space.
Needs a sound system, and better air circulation for a comfortable shopping experience.
Will come again though!

Yes thats true, but some air circulation would help to get the stagnat air moving and keep the heat from being trapped in one place. I know several fish keepers who heat the room rather than heat every tank.

Staff is very knowledgeable, stock is top notch, community outreach is great, and if Cory doesn't have something you want he'll try his damnedest to get it for you!

Where to begin, what an AWESOME fish store. This place is so clean, every tank is clean, the floor is clean, amazing. The staff has been really nice, and the fish health is perfect. I have no doubt the fish from here are going to stay happy and healthy unless I do something wrong. I live in Des Moines and it's well worth the drive to come up, plus Hank(Store Fish) is awesome. The variety is a little low, but that's due to the size of the shop, it's a 5 for the space he has, but overall that's the only place i'd drop points, hopefully business continues to go well and they get a bigger shop, because it would be well deserved!

P.S. i'll be seeing you soon for a rimless tank, as soon as my wife lets me Smile

One of the better if not best shops around here. While small, the layout is simple and easy to navigate but still allows for a nice selection and viewing. I see myself doing lots of future business with Cory and staff of Co-Op. Speaking of which. I should be dropping by this weekend.  Very Happy

I think everyone here knows the store by now. Amazing for what it is. Wish they had more cichlids and general non live fish products. Great staff and unique ideas. Wish some of the other stores would take notice.

Best place I've seen for nano tanks hands down. Being a cichlid guy, seeing more midsize and larger cichlids would be nice, but it's understandable given the space (Variety per square foot would be rated at a 10) and I have no doubt that Cory would order something in if I really wanted it. I love the quiet feel of the place, nothing but bubbles is very smoothing.

My 1st hard good purchase on-line. It was quick , easy, with an informative website. $6 shipping for hard goods impressed me. If it was one of those $15-$20 shipping deals I wouldn't have made my hard good purchase. Good job putting this together Cory I was definitely impressed.
