Matt and the rest of the staff at Aquarius Aquatics have been incredibly helpful and patient as my son and I set up our first aquarium and prepared it for an axolotl. I can't say enough about the caring and knowledgable assistance we've received. Night and day compared to shopping at a big box store or digging through mountains of information online.
Awesome store with a VERY knowledge owner who cares for his craft! Definitely a place to stop by if you are new to the fish keeping hobby!
Absolutely love Aquarius. Customer service is unmatched. The owner is very passionate about taking great care of fish even once they leave the store. He is always helpful and generous with advice any time I call. He has offered me countless things for free. First time fish owner and I am so grateful I found this place.
He has so much knowledge to spare, and not just of one type of fish. He has put so much work and research into his store, I feel like I get a new story every time I come in. Their answers to my questions never disappoint, giving a quick answer, or a long, detailed answer, depending on how much you need to know. Soon, I will be adopting from them, once my room clears out. Thank you for all of the love I find in each tank. My only goal now is just to get a job here someday, if college doesn't some how workout for me...
Fairly knowledgeable staff, better than the big box stores for sure!! The place is nice but very small with limited fish stock/varieties on hand and I couldn't find any prices on hardly any of the various products they had on their shelves accept for a few acceptations and that included most of the fish also. I hate looking at items I'm contemplating buying and having to constantly ask someone "how much is this or how much is that?" The fish I ended up buying because I actually did NEED them were EXTREEEEEEEEEEEEMELY high priced but I had no choice so ponied up the cash!!!!!! If prices for fish were more reasonable and items around the shop were clearly marked with prices I'd definitely be back as the personnel and place, although small, were nice and it was an enjoyable place to visit.
