Very friendly and helpful staff. They didn't have the fish I wanted it stock but were able to get it in just a few days. They are the only place in Portland I will go for fish.

First off I would like to say the best customer service with staff who actually have knowledge of what they are doing. Great selection of what ever kind of fish or product you may be looking for. Very reasonable prices. Would be nice to have a nice pay card where when you feel it up you can have a chance to spin a wheel and win a prize. Keep up the Customer Service guys your awsome

I stopped in at Caye's and told them I was setting up a new aquarium, could they give me some tips on plants suitable for a Betta, filtration, etc.
Walked out with a few plants and some free gravel from one of their established tanks to

Seriously?
I've had an aquarium for years, one place where I've had the worst service was "The Wet Spot" I spent 45 Min waiting for help after I asked several times, there were 5 people on staff and 2 customers. The Wet Spot may have more fish but they are more expensive, smaller and the entire staff are rude!
There 6 fish stores in the PDX area besides petco/smart. Caye's has the most healthy fish, the cleanest tanks and the most friendly staff. I rather wait for a fish to come in to Caye's then ever set foot in TWS ever again

I am so happy that my friend took me to Caye's. After going through over a hundred guppies from PetCo (they would die within a few days and PetCo kept replacing them) I went into Caye's and got 2 angels, 2 gorami's, 5 neons, an algae eater, and they all lived!! I will now always only go to Caye's. the staff is excellent. They know their stuff!! They answer questions and are happy to help!!! It is worth the drive over from Vancouver!!

I have been a marine aquarist for more than two decades and have purchased saltwater fish from more than a dozen stores in three cities. I have never purchased marine fish as healthy and vibrant as those I have bought from Caye's Exotic Pets in Portland. I have not had a single problem with disease and all have been active, friendly and voracious eaters within days of being introduced into my system.

Cayes is a great store. highly suggest you give it a look. The staff there are always helpful and knowledgable. Shane has taken hours out of his time to help me understand saltwater and reef tanks. I have been to a few other local shops around PDX and have yet to get the kind of service I get from Shane and his wife. Some times the selection of SW fish can be slim but they are always quick to tell me when the next shipment is coming in or order a fish for me. hats off to Cayes.

Pros: Great staff, clean tanks, normally a great selection

Cons: Prices sometimes, but you get what you payfor. Ill pay more for good service.

There are a wide selection of fish ranging from freshwater to saltwater fish. The staff are knowleable and are willing to takes time to help you understand and answer all your questions. The tanks are clean and the fish are healty.

Pros: Best locally owned place to get fish.

Cons: Usally cost more then other places, but I think it's worth it.

We have been going to Caye's for years and this family owned and run business has been nothing but the best. They are extremely knowledgeable about all the fish they carry and give good tips on aquarium care. We purchase all of our frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, and krill here. And though they might not have the biggest selection of fish in the Portland area, we like that there is constant turnover - you never know what great deal of a fish you'll stumble upon to next. They also offer "sitter" services - where they will watch your fish while you are out of town, or help with nursing them back to health, if necessary. Plus their guarantee on fish is unbeatable. There are really only 2 great places to shop for fish in Portland, and this is one of them!

They have a good size salt selection. I will admit the the Animal house has more (another of my fav. places) but I like how its more spaced out, and you can really see what your getting. The they're corals... lovely.... Their tanks are always clean and their fish healthy. In fact I was in today and they were cleaning. Tammy is always so pachent with me and always answers all my questions politely. I've been dreaming of setting up a salt, and they are so nice they are letting me make my own set up and do payments!! I can now venture out of the fresh water world and feel the tides and flow of salt! They are really nice and remember you, and thats a great feeling that your a person and not a doller sign walking in. They treat the fish excelent and I've never had a problem with any of them. You've got to stop in just to see the nerf shark they have. Not for sale, he's their baby. It'll make you dream of a salt water too.

I had to chime in when I saw the obviously false "review" by someone from "the wet spot".
I have been going to Caye's for at least 20 years. It is a family run business and the service has always been excellent and knowledgable. I recently got back into owning an aquarium after several years, and I went to Caye's and it was the same way I remembered it. Not one dirty tank. In fact I have never seen a dirty tank there. I also recently went to "the wet spot" because they had a certain fish I wanted in stock. I was also impressed by their clean tanks and lots of them. But the big difference I found was the size of fish. Caye's usually has fish that have grown a bit and are able to make the transition to a new environment much better, whereas "TWS" mostly had fish that didn't look much more than frys. 2 of the 3 fish I got there died within 2 days. I will not even compare the knowledgeable employees because its not a contest. I would give "TWS" a 5, but Caye's is the tops.

Pros: Always very clean tanks, bigger fish and great, knowledgeable service

Cons: could have a bit more selection to choose from

I've been using these folks for years, and I have to say they have the best customer service, are very knowledgable on their fish, and really care about how you are taken care of. They also have the best selection in town. Do I seem bias? Well I am. I wont buy my fish anywhere else.

One employee was clueless and the other RUDE!
Tanks were dirty, and the owner could care less.
Avoid this store, there are many other
fish stores in town that have much more selection, and
friendly and savy staff! Try the wet spot on NE Sandy!

I've been shopping for freshwater fish and supplies from them for years. Good service, variety of fish does change and they take care to sell only healthy fish. Novice to long time aquarium lover, you should find it here.

When visiting aquarists come to town, I always take them to Caye's. Like The Wet Spot, Bell's and Family Pet Center, they are among the finest of the local fish stores. Caye's main theme keeps changing over the years, from unusual fish to cichlids to saltwater and then back to fresh, but the store maintains its good selection and quality throughout the phases.
