Here's what hobbyists and professionals are saying
about the Freshwater section at AquaTouch:
"I called ahead to try and locate a fish I had no
luck in finding at other fish stores. They had the fish I wanted, and
when I went in to the store I was amazed. This is by far the nicest fish
store in the valley. The store is spotless, All the tanks are well
planted and very clean. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, a real
pleasure to deal with. I will definitely be a permanent customer of
theirs" --Retep via the Internet.
"...While I have your attention, I discovered a
LFS here that has absolutely taken my breath away. I had not considered
going into "planted" tanks yet, but a visit to this place has me
reconsidering that decision. Going into this store is like visiting a
public aquarium. They have dozens of absolutely stunning tanks on
display. I don't mean to advertise for them, but I would bet that there
are very few LFS in the US that are on this level. Research lab,
necropsy, surgery and more. Just amazing. Please forgive me for offering
a link to their website (I am not affiliated with them). Anyone in the
Phoenix area should not miss this place! ...wow, I wish I had a fish
store like that nearby! ...That looks like an awesome LFS - I think it's
on par with some UK ones...
and it's great to have a good LFS near you." --Desertrefugee at
FishLore.com via the Internet.
"What a wonderful store you have! I was actually
driving to somewhere completely else and I saw your store from the road.
We had plenty of time so my boyfriend and I stopped in to take a look.
Well number one, I absolutely LOVE the Amano display you have in your
freshwater section. I also had the opportunity to chat with your
employees about some algae problems I was having with my own planted
tank. They gave me the most rational advice on how to take care of it!
I'd just like to say you have a wonderful, friendly staff and beautiful
animals. Please keep up the good work!"-- Katie. Phoenix, Arizona.
"What a nice
display in a shop! The tank is clean and bright, but would benefit from
some pretty stem plants growing up behind your central wood and moss.
While it looks like you have attempted some foreground planting, you
need to give these plants some time to grow in." -- Karen Randall.

"Excellent low maintenance aquarium. No doubt the customers are
impressed with the display. This tank's best quality is the open space
for the fish to swim about. The aquarist looks to have taken the fish
into account as well as the plants which is especially important with
discus. The foreground and background needs to fill in a lot. It looks
like they were recently thinned/trimmed or planted. Make sure to leave
some open room for the discus to peck food on the substrate. The stand
of crypts in the front could be moved back some from the glass to keep
them from crowding the front of the tank..." -- Phil Edwards. 2005
