I would recommend going here to any fish hobbyist, friend, or family member. When i set my small 10g hexagon tank up, this was the only place that could assist me in getting top and light fixtures for it. They have such a wide selection of fish , some I've never even heard of before. I have called the store personally many times for assistance in fish problems and they're always friendly, knowledgeable, and overall helpful. On top of this, they also sell many used tanks for great prices and in great condition. I'll be returning to this store for years to come.

I found this site when I was looking for the new location of the store. I read the reviews and had to go visit the store. I thought there is no way it could be as bad as described. I've been an extreme hobbyist for over 30 years. I've had reef tanks to live planted tanks to show winning African Cichlids. I've been a bit quiet in the hobby for a couple years but now want to explore it with my son. I agree the old store seemed a bit crowded and cluttered but i always liked the fish selection. I went to the new location and saw tons of improvements. My son and I browsed the fish and noticed well stocked, healthy tanks. They were all clear and well maintained and the prices were no different than anyone else. I love the little color coded areas as to where the fish are from or what type they are! I always went there due to the large selection of African Cichlids, which are nicely arranged in their own alcove. The thing I also noticed was the really large selection of live plants, nice to see. The place was so cool and enjoyable to browse my 7 year old made a comment that it was his favorite fish store!!! That's a big deal as we've been to places all over CT. I had to set the review record straight so don't hesitate to give this place a look!!

I was unimpressed by the owner and his girlfriend. I was told I was buying a brand new tank and when I got it, I knew it was a tank that was used and was a leaker. I was not told this...until I asked. I had wanted a brand new tank and he would have given me the used leaky tank if I didn't realize it. They will tell you anything to get you to spend money. I also know someone who bought a 29 gallon and they tricked him and gave him a 20 gallon, telling him it was a 29 gallon. What kind of people would take advantage like that?

After reading the previous review, I felt I had to review this store. My first impression was honestly that it was dirty and overpriced. They sell/buy a lot of used equipment which makes for a cluttered looking store. However, after visiting a few times what I realized was that while the store itself is cluttered, the owner is friendly and knowledgeable and the tanks are well maintained. You will definitely pay more for fish than you will at Petco, but you likely won't have ick or dead fish either. My 6 year old calls the store the one with the owner who actually knows about fish.

After reading the comments I thought I'd check it out. It's not only dirty but appears terribly maintained.
There was no variety of fish at all.
Found a couple of containers of supposedly cured live rock that looked like scraps dug out from someone's garden.
They have a few aquarium supplies but beyond that there is nothing worth seeing.

First off, I was very impressed by the customer service and the knowledge of the workers there. they had an excellent variety of fish and helped me get started with my new tank. unfortunately one of the fish I bought there got a fungus 3 days later and they made me run back and forth from my home to their store for a week trying different medicines until they finally gave me one that killed all my fish. I just hope that next time I get a fish there they will properly diagnose the issue because they are the only experts around.

They are always helpful and very knowledgeable. Making great improvements to a store that already sells the best fish in town. They are always willing to check your water levels and offer advice as to your aquarium and how to keep it in good order.
