I haven't been to Nahacky's in a while and was very impressed. I am just getting back into the hobby and am very excited!. Their tanks looked nice and clean and their selection was great!

I have been in the hobby for over 35 years now. I recently moved to Merritt Island Florida and have been extremely hard pressed to find a half way decent shop to purchase my aquarium needs. I found that NaHacky's was the best of choices in Brevard County how ever, The first purchase I made there where a mated pair of Oscelarus clowns and a bubble tipped Anemone. Now bear in mind that this was my fault for not paying close attention. The anemone lasted two days! Again my fault because there where several rotten and decaying anemones in the tank I choose him from! The female Oscealarus clown had a small growth under her on her belly that I did not see when buying her. She never did eat and the growth got bigger ( Yes I medicated her several times) and eventually died! The male Oscelarus has still not eaten and is about to die. I have a long list of fish on my reef that are fat and healthy. I am no dummy when it comes to water quality. I never did report this to the store because I felt that this was all my fault due to just not paying attention. I went back in and bought a Colored Bubble tip anemone for $80.00 (keep in mind again more dyeing or dead anemones in the tank) However this one was on the side of the glass and half way open so, I made the purchase. When the Employee pryed him off the glass I felt at the time he was a bit brutal in his procedure but all looked well! Got the anemone home and he keep inflating and going back down as if he wanted to die. Several days had gone by and he stopped trying to inflate. I then noticed that there was a small tear in his foot. You guessed it! He never recovered and down the toilet he went. I called NaHackys and explained my first two experiences to the owner and in a nice way he told me you pick everything out and you saw it and you bought it ! NOT good customer service if you ask me and they will not have the chance to take another few hundred dollars out of my pocket. I now drive to Orlando ! Saltwater shops in Brevard County are dirty/filthy and most everyone of them lack the experience to even run one! Take this advice or burn your money! Its all up to you!!!!

I just restarted an old hobby of raising fresh water fish after years of absents from the hobby. The staff at Nahacky's took alot of time answering all my questions . Not once was I pressured to buy something that I didn't need , just the opposite several fish I liked were very expensive but I was told not to buy because the fish I already had would kill them. They could have sold me a hundred dollars of fish that wold have died and didn't that makes them honest I will always shop there for that reason alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, to read the last comment by that customer was astonishing. I have been a customer of Nahacky's Aquarium since 2001, when I first started attending FIT. I have been going there since and NEVER had a problem. The so-called girl is pregnant, you IGNORANT FOOL. And by the way she is married as well, so that pass was probably your stench she was trying to veer from. Seeing the spelling of that IDIOT, I can tell you need more schooling, maybe your HOT girlfriend can help you with that. LMAO! Every member of that store from TOP to BOTTOM is exceptional. I have a plant tank that is rocking with South American Dwarf Cichlids in a 100 gallon fresh water. Exceptional System sold to me by Nahacky's not NICNAKS. I actually had a problem with my water and Katie was kind enough to lead me in the right direction...because I LISTENED to her advice. Everyone has to remember that having a tank is like a true hobby, you not only have to ask advice but read and research on your own as well. You can't go running and crying to the people who sold you fish.... They don't sell dead fish or bad water, It's YOUR tank with the problem and the person taking care of it, is YOURSELF, so think twice when you have a question to ask. Nahacky's is worth every penny in my mind, and the WHOLE staff is knowledgeable. And to that FOOL with that DUMB Review I hope your girlfriend doesn't marry you.

Very disappointed with the store, service, and prices. Found a better store in palm bay that won't sell you something just to make a buck. Bought 300 dollars of live rock when they reopened after the remodel, they said it was done cycling.... it wasn't. they just saw the profit. Will not shop there again unless its an absolute emergency..................

I have been shopping at Nahacky's for years. They are by far the best shop in the area for aquarium enthusiasts. They stock equipment that??s built to last. Their fish selection is excellent and unique to the area. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to help solve any problem you may have. They have been around for years and there is a good reason for that. You can??t wrong at Nahacky??s.

I was brought up with Nahack's ( Nahacky's) from the 1960's. I can't give
any inputs on the reef and saltwater fishes. But all an all when there open,
I will stop by, and for Sweetwater fish, ( freshwater ) there my go to place.
And always informative,and helpful, for there in store items. Yes there not
gonna tell you to go to Petsmart and so on.
And by the way, there usually the same price if NOT CHEAPER then Petsmart.
I.E. = Clown Loach 9.99 Petsmart, Petco 12.99, Nahack's 8.99.... 10-2009.

They refused to order fish, even though they will make a profit. Their reply to this is that we have "similar" fish. Well, I do not want a similar fish, which is 50 bucks, when the "similar" fish is ten bucks. Heck, charge me 20 bucks for the one I want and you still make a ten dollar profit.

They are the only serious fish shop in town.
The selection is the best I've seen anywhere.
Shop on Thursday because they get all their shipments on Wed.

I have shopped Nahacky's for about three years, and the rudeness never changes. I visit only as a last resort. Most everything is over-priced and the livestock looks poor. If the staff can answer a question; they smirk, if they cannot; they will smirk and dismiss you. It must be a pre-req for a job there.

Fish are mostly unhealthy, coral is overpriced and very common. Most of the coral looks very poor and the prices are almost double what they should be. Dry goods are overpriced even more than most LFS. The owner (tall guy) is a jerk.

Their advice is old school and old fashioned at best and not helpful.

The good things I could say about them are that they are close by to where I live and I occasionally find a good price on coral.

Nahackey's is by far, the WORST place to for anything. As soon as I found at least 2 more places I could go, I barely go back there. Their corals look like crap, their fish don't look too hot (especially when their dead on the bottom of the tank) and the prices are ridiculously high for the shape they sell their stuff in. Also, the staff is not very knowlegable on anything. You can ask a question to 2 different people and they will give you 2 different answers. There is only one nice person that works there (He has glasses and is a bit older). I don't think I will EVER spend another cent there. If I could give anyone a tip, I would tell you that if you need to get fish or coral, please research other places around town.

Nahackys FISH STORE IS THE WORST unhelpful, all they want from you is your MONEY they could care less about what they sell you. They are charging you shipping price in what you buy. They are the worst deal in Florida. I would never ever recommend them ever. They should not be in a business they know nothing about. People that have marine and fresh water tanks have a passion about their hobbies and a lot of money is spent, losing fish they are rude to people .

In my opinion, Nahacky's aquarium is probably only still in business because they are the only reef store in Brevard County.
The staff know less about reef environments than a novice hobbyist. They are very pushy to turn you into a sale conversion and are not at all interested in selling you the right items for your tank. I have shopped there on several occasions (due to a lack of alternatives locally) and I have been disappointed every time. They want to sell you the most expensive items that come close to addressing your needs as quickly as possible and then get you out the door. The staff border on rude and they do their best to sell you as much as they can as fast as they can regardless of whether its what is right for what you want/need or not.

This is a fish store, with tons and tons of various types of fish, and tons of Saltwater fish which alot of places dont carry alot like these people do. The Customer service is satisfactory, most times i've been in there, there hasnt been but 1 or 2 people working so if others were there then you usually had a long wait.! But they did take care of you, answered all your questions, wether dumb or not, they were very educated salesmen! They had very EXSPENSIVE Fish but they were a good deal at the same time!
