KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A new pet store opened yesterday in Kennewick..but this one isn't your run-of-the-mill Petsmart.

Finatics Tropical Fish on Huntington Street and Clearwater specializes in just that--exotic fish.

The store boasts the widest selection of non-native fish in the area.

You can also find non-traditional fish food that you cook before putting in the tank.

Owners tell us they wanted to create a different feel for this pet store.

"We modeled it after the shops in Portland and the shops in Seattle., so it has more of a relaxing sit down atmosphere. It's not going to be your normal pet store. When you come in here, we want you to relax and learn," says owner Don Petty.

The store also sells tanks, pumps, and rare forms of sea plants.
