I been dreaming of a koi pond for years, it took a weeks to have it dug, rocks placed, and the perfect location. My dream turned into a nightmare till I walked to this store. My pond was Irish Green! My Pond was was a mosquito pit. The owner was more interested in providing me with information, knowledge and hope than in making a sale. I went home with filter material, guppies and a large dose of hope. Michelle

I had a beautiful bala shark for 5 years, unfortunately was overgrowing his tank. I didn’t realize until it was a dire situation. I used Google and found Paul, who immediately agreed to take my “Quint” in order to save his life. Wonderful man. Colleen

We have had a really wonderful experience. So glad we found this business. They are guiding us with their terrific knowledge through our first tank. Say “NO” to the chains and use this great local resource! Heather

I haven’t bought anything for my aquarium from anyone but Paul in over a year. He is always knowledgeable, helpful, and straight-forward. He will help you with what you need, without trying to sell you on what you don’t. His prices are much better than the competition, and I have never seen him waiver on quality to try to maintain that. Andrea

Best selection of freshwater fish I've seen as far as size of mature specimens, and their prices. I will never buy livebearers, tetras, etc. from anywhere else around the area.

Disappointing - I went because of so many positive reviews but what I saw was a lot of sick fish, many heavily infested with ich, other tanks with lethargic clamped fin fish. I was never greeted or even acknowledged that I was in the store. Also quite a bit of clutter near the entrance making it difficult to get through. Disappointing for a LFS...

Great customer service and he was very helpful. Better then a y pet store. This guy knows his stuff. I bought fish from him 2 months ago and they are still strong and healthy. He takes the time out to teach you about what you are buying and what you need. Also great prices. Great fish selection more then anyone in the Tampa area

Great service; Paul never over sells you, and he is very knowledgable. My fresh water planted tank looks great, due to his advice. Tell him what you want, or have, and he will let you know what will, or won't work.

This place is absolutely incredable. The culmination of a passion that grew into a profession. Great variety of fish - fresh and salt water. Plus the owner knows his business. He'll help you better understand what you're doing.
