Hello!
Im From Lubbock, and My LFS (Mr.Aquarium) and other DFWMAS Members have mentioned DNA as a great store to stop in if i ever wonder to the North Side, and i just wanted to say it was great!
I love the built-ins when you first walk in, and the cleanliness of the Fish Tanks. (the Employees were nice and not pushy, but offered help throughout the visit)
I will deff be stopping back in, and have told a few other Lubbock members to check it out as well. [smilie=hi.gif]

Just wanted to give a Congratulations

Thanks
David

+1 I just left the store and I have to say by far the best aquarium store I've been in. I live in Arlington but will be making the drive to purchase from them.

If you go to DNA talk to a guy named Cole. He has been helping me since I first started and always gives me great advice and he will never sell me anything that I don't need. Awesome employee at an awesome store.

+100000 Cole is by far the most knowledgable person on staff at DNA(IMHO). He is very helpful and not pushy at all!

I wait until Cole is free anytime I'm in the store. He remembers what is in my tank (and my wife's freshwater tank) and has even advised us against making that purchase we thought we just had to have. Since we trust Cole, we tend to make DNA our first stop for everything, even when I think I could get the same thing for a little less elsewhere. DNA is a great store - bright, clean and well stocked for fresh or salt - Cole makes the experience even better!

This store is the best one I have found yet/ The people in the store help you become more knowledgable each time you stop by. I often stop by just to visit and chat about tanks with them. There are quite a few guys in there that know the stuff well.

Cole's last day was the 24th -- we were in yesterday and while I know it's a holiday weekend, it would have been nice to get waited on by anyone! No, they weren't busy. No, they had lots of employees there. We were there ready to spend money and literally could not get an employee to even acknowledge we were there except for the girl at checkout who said "Hi!" as we came in! (We met some other people saying this as we came in, but thought they had to just be having a bad day!) We're not mad on this end, but it was a far cry from Cole, who tried to acknowledge everyone with a quick "Hi, I'll be back in a minute!". We ended up going to Neptune's Cove and Exotic Aquatics and spent money money there. I still like the store, but this is definitely a set-back as far as we're concerned!
