I think some of you are confused! I've been shopping at World Wide for many years, that is I use to until a couple years ago when some young ignorant fool decided to take over with absolutely no idea on how to run a business. It I recall he use to be an employee and an ok one I suppose but as thee ownermanager he really is clueless. He claims his store is so empty because of the Economy which I can understand but he is bsing everyone. He has no money and probably wont keep it a float for long so if you actually enjoy shopping in the dump he turned it into you better enjoy it while it lasts. He probably can't even pay the staff, that's why he has none and all the knowlegable ones that were there before he took over had too much respect and brains to stick around!

Hello, I am 27 y.o.and this is honestly the 1st time i have ever taken the time out to post a review or in this case a rebutle.I live in center city and there are no good saltwater fish places around so i have driven to w.w.aquarium twice.who ever the person that wrote the last review about buying a 20 gallon fish tank and going to petsmart because of the prices is a moron!! 1st of all fish stores write the prices on the tank,wether ur a big or small pet store.Make tags??? really??? if ur a good pet store you are selling ur fish within a day or to so u would keep making new tags all the time.then u talk about the cleanliness? ITS A PET STORE!!! not macys. whoever you are you should keep going to petsmart they dont even have salt water fish.o yea and you say you had a problem there and they gave you a gift card.thats disgusting. so to sum it all up not only are you a moron you are cheap and looking for something for free,Pathetic!! goood luck with ur 15 gallon start up fish.I hope ur $2 gold fish wasnt to much for you.p.s. world wide has the best selection of saltwater fish. and there prices are very resonable. ill keep driving 20 min to get there.
i did like it when i was a little kid but now their just out the roof with the prices i went to go buy a 20 gallon tank they didnt have any but they had a 15g and it was gonna cost me like $127.98 for it and i just think thats a little high????? so i deicded to go a little distance up to petsmart at marple shoping center n bought a start kit 20g tank for $86.99 and i had a little problems but they also took care of me and also gave me a giftcard because the filter was messed up but back onto topic ... like i said i mean i would really like this place if they cleaned up the tanks and atleast showed they cared bout the fish instead of just trying to get rid of em but hey whatever lol .. but if you get a chance check out petsmart they keep it nicer with tags at world wide its writing on windows cmon now your running a business not a dump .... but yeah im out
I would like to make sure that everyone knows that the World Wide Aquarium & Pets in Upper Darby has NO connection with the stores on Frankford Ave. and Ridge Ave. The Upper Darby store was bought last August (2008) by a young man who is determined to turn it into the best pet store in the area for both supplies, livestock, and expert advice. Do not confuse this store with the others who unfortunately have some terrible reviews. World Wide in Upper Darby is worth visiting!!

I think Lisa is confused about the ownership change; all the complaints she listed are before the new owner took over. Products are much cheaper compared to petsmart and other pet stores. Plus they're making a lot of cool changes that make me want to keep coming back! There USE to be a horrible odor but that's does not exsist anymore. I found a lot of cool new things, stock looks fuller compared to the empty shelves before. Stop by and check it out! -Gwen
Pros: fuller stock, cheaper prices, cutest puppies!
I was totally impressed with the changes in World Wide Aquarium since the new owners have taken over. I strongly disagree with lisa. I have been going to the store for years for my fish and fish tank and the store has never been better stocked. The store is large and you can see that sections of the store are being painted and revamped. There is a huge pond that has been built that will be stocked with lots of coy. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable. Lots of changes are taking place there and you can see the care and pride that the new owners have in their store. Looking for a pet supply store that caters to its customers...World Wide is the place to go!
Pros: Well stocked, clean, friendly staff
