I never, well almost, post reviews on the web, but just had to give this store a big thumbs up. Paul, the proprietor knows all about freshwater tropical fish, and will give get you started with an aquarium set up, test your water, recommend fish, etc. Very down to earth guy, who clearly loves what he's doing. Lots of cool fish, plants, snails, and all sorts of things you never thought were fresh water, like shrimp! Okay, I'm waiting for him to open today to take my kids for a look see, a water test, and a couple new fish. How did I no know about this place before? Just found out about Westside a few weeks ago when we decided to start up an aquarium. We bought the aquarium set up from Craigslist, and then went to Paul for the rest. They do sell pumps, and accessories, but fish are the main thing there. Thank you Paul! (Just checked my review, and see that I've "moved" to San Francisco, despite physically continuing to reside in South Tampa. Gotta love the internet.)

Westside Aquarium & Pets maintains excellent service and a nice selection of live stock and dry goods. The staff is very knowledgeable, unlike most local fish stores. I did see some fish that that did not look the greatest, but this is usually the case in all fish stores. All in all, it is a pretty good store.

A rare find in a world now dominated by Petco, Pet Supermarket, Petsmart, Petland, etc., Paul runs a cramped but cozy little shop full of (mostly) fish, snakes, feed animals...no puppies or kittens. Extensive knowledge, personal service. Best place to go in S Tampa.

Pros: Personal service, more intimate

Cons: Deals mostly in fish (salt and fresh) and herps

I have been a customer of Westside Aquarium & Pets for many years now and I have always been pleased with my service that I get when I go there. The owner remembers us & remembers what type of fish tank we have (size, fresh fish etc) He usually helps us with our choices of fish. He sells his bird & fish food in bulk & that is a great savings especially compared to a grocery store or other stores. We have been with him so long that we have actually seen him gradually grow. and get more product and selections of animals & reptiles(It's always nice to see someone that works so hard succeed) We often wonder if he ever takes a vacation.....I would Highly recommend him to anyone! Keep up the Great Service, and Best of Luck for a prosperous 2009.....
