I've been going there for 2 years now always gotten healthy fish always helping me out they have a good selction of boos to purchace to\n\nAnd for the person who bought a yellow carpet anemone is actually your fault they should not be placed in a nano tank so don't blame the petstore maybe it was your lighting or water condtion

this place is fine. i go all the time. anybody with a fish problem will be frustrated no matter the fish store or service you get. the owner & Douglas are helpful but have probably heard every excuse in the book. if they think you are going in to blame them, then forget about any service or freebies. but if you want to take a water sample in or discuss a problem w/o accusations, they''ll respond. they work with you, not for you nor will they argue with you. \r\n\r\ngetting an aquarium is a risk and all responsibility should be on the buyer. they are there to provide the best they can but are not there to take blame. if you work with them, they'll work with you. i enjoy my fast efficient visits there to get my supplies for my healthy crazy up and down fish aquariums & pond.

Pros: immediate pro knowledgable real deal

Cons: no whining or complaining allowed!

As I made my way to Trader Joe's through the parking, I've always noticed Oranda Aquarium. One day I decided to do a little window shopping. I was immediately impressed how well kept this store was compared to other fish stores I've visited in the past. I met the owner and he knew his stuff. So much so, that two weeks later, I was back in there purchasing a 50 gallon salt water tank. It is now 6 months since my purchase and I love my tank! I can't believe I didn't stop in there earlier....

This place has diseased fish, when I was just getting into the hobby I bought a fish and ended up loosing over $400 worth of livestock. When I came to see the owner he wouldn't even bother to talk to me, let alone try to fix something. This year my boyfriend bought a yellow carpet anemone, which according to the owner was fine. It died about 2 weeks later setting off my water chem in my nano. I would never recommend this place to anyone. someone who doesn't care about the livestock should not be in the industry!

Pros: good display tank-NOTHING ELSE

Cons: Diseased fish and corals

First of all, this place is the best. It has everything, and what it doesn't have, the very helpful and knowledgeable owners and employees can get for you. The owner actually refused (respectfully) to sell me some plants until I set up my tank to properly care for them -- now that's caring service!\r\n\r\nSecondly, fish can't get ich from plants. And you should always thoroughly rinse any decoration before adding it to your aquarium. And ich is easily treatable, if you act quickly. My guess is that my fellow reviewer was and is rather ignorant, and as ignorant people often do, he or she needed to someone to blame other than him or herself. \r\n\r\nDon't listen to the ignorant -- check this place out for youreself. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Excellent selection, beautiful setups, great service

Cons: Slightly more expensive than your average Petco

After building up my 10 Gal aquarium mostly from this store I was satisfied. I believe in giving the small shops a chance and I don't mind paying more to support them. But I also expect a better service and more care from them than you would at Petco for example.\r\nWell, don't expect any body to care for you at this place. \r\nAs long as you buy and have no problems, they are OK (never friendly though). But I recently bought some plants from this store and granted, forgot to wash them before putting them in my tank. A week later I had an explosion of ich. I went back to the store to complain and found a wall. Not only the guy didn't want to take responsability for it and treated me like a moron b/c ich can not be transmitted by plants, but he didn't care at all. He never admitted that their water could be contaminated and put everything on me and my way of taking care of my tank.\r\n\r\nSo, if you want a store to provide you with good quality fishes and plants, don't go there. It's not what it looks like and the service is terrible.

Amazing! When I walked into this store, the first thing I noticed was how clean and well kept this store is. I mean, how many times have you gone into a tropical pet store and all you smelled was damp, musty odors?? This was a real store. The next thing you notice is the amazing tropical saltwater reef tank displayed next to the counter. It's the most incredible piece of underwater art I've seen this side of Bali. The owner of Oranda Aquarium is the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to tropical fish. He knows what he's talking about and after a few minutes of talking with him, you can sense a true honesty that you rarely get these days. He will ONLY sell you what you need, whether it'd be which fish to add to your collection or filteration system required in maintaining your investement. I invite you all to this place. It's truly an amazing store and believe me, as a fish enthusiast, I've been to other tropical pet stores and not one has come close to Oranda Aquarium. One visit and you're "hooked"!

CONS: Closed on Tuesdays
