I too used to work for Midway Pet several years ago. They are always understaffed but they have quality employees over quantity of them. So the employees do their best with daily maintenance of both the animals and the shop overall.

They have been in business for several decades and Pacific Highway just wouldn't be the same without the trademark building nearby AM/PM!

The smell can be tough to endure, especially during hot days (because there is no A/C) but the smell is because they have a huge variety of pets packed into a small building. If you want hospital sterile, then go to Petsmart or Petco. But if you want to build a rewarding relationship with the employees who KNOW THEIR STUFF then definitely hit up Midway Pet.

Also IF the animals were being mistreated or neglected, they would have been shut down YEARS ago. So get over yourself and enjoy supporting a local business!

- Variety of fish from freshwater to saltwater
- All the supplies you need to maintain your chosen pet
- Kittens for $30 or less
- Chinchillas, reptiles, rodents, rabbits, spiders, scorpions, birds and more!
- Very knowledgeable and friendly staff (They are well worth the wait if they are busy. And they aren't mind readers so if you have questions about your chosen pet ASK them!)

Bad pet store. They sell live kittens for snake food. Rodents are way too crowded in cages. Its a fire hazard. Anyone who can stop in here and take pictures or whatever. Then call RASKC. Kent shelter at 206-296-pets and report them, would be great. Wanting to get it closed down for animals sakes. The kittens were flea ridden, sick. Please help with this. I am on facebook. Come find me (:

This is a good store for prices and I go in about every week or so to buy supplies for my reptiles and to see if they have any new reptiles that I might be interested in.
Where all the mice and small critters are reeks of ammonia. You'll look at the cages and see that the whole tank hasn't been cleaned (takes more to cleaning than just taking out the substrate), the cages for mice/rats are too full and their water dishes are filthy.
They're very low on staff which probably explains why it's so dirty and you have to ding the bell or search/wait for an employee. If they had more employees this place would probably be cleaner thus more customers. And these people on her need to stop making excuses for how dirty it is. It's not hard to sweep, mop and do a little dusting at every closing and clean cages every week.

Id like to start by saying that I was a worker there for 10 years and I help the store on my free time. Some of the reviews I read on Midway Pet is rather upsetting to say the least, this is a very well established store and the 40+ years of business that it has under its belt is backing up my claim mind you. Now being a person who knows all the employees personally I can say that they all do their best to humble themselves and serve to every whim and need to ANYONE that walks into that store, now sometimes it gets busy, crowded, hot, and humid they do everything they can with a smile on their face. Now coming from someone who has cleaned the rodent, reptile, and bird cages ill openly admit it does tend to stink but as previously stated it is a small store, they do everything they can to keep it cleaned and maintained, again coming from first hand experience, its challenging. As for the store being dirty, allow me to remind you we ARE located next to HIGHWAY 99 so the dust kick up from the cars tends to find its way into the store and the heavy foot traffic doesn't help either and every employee does do their best to keep things clean and maintained, now i know its no petsmart or petco level of clean but they can afford to have people come in every night and wax the floors and clean every little corner of the store. Its not in our policy to rip you off we do not have secret meetings in the back or sit in a group in a secret room around a table plotting ways to rip people off, we are very loose with our return policy and only try to protect the stores income while keeping our customers concerns and needs in mind, now if we do offer to take your whatever back we are taking a risk, we are most likely losing some money that being said it does state on our policy that we CAN refuse you service but we never really do unless your causing us grief. All that being said please if you have any concerns or comments we would love to hear about them in person or from our suggestion box located right outside next to the front door and if you need a pen and paper just ask we will gladly supply you with what you need. Thank you for reading and more importantly thanks to all who support Midway Tropical Fish and Pet. -Michael Krohn

that smell you made a comment on may have been feces but thats very normal in a small petshop and limited amount of workers...I buy their fish on a regular basis and for a business thats been there over 30 years has to be doing something right...so don't go making comments on something you are not familiar with....the workers there know their stuff....trust me I know and they have helped several times! so if you're looking to just make bad comments just cause you could with the group "PETA" you're barking up the wrong tree, but if not then I am sorry that you had a bad "experience there!" honestly these guys know what they are doing so please reconsider and ask them...they know!

I cannot understand how anyone could regularly shop here. If you love animals you should shop going here and allow this business to run into the ground. I decided to go here while having time to kill waiting for my class to start, as soon as I walked into the door there was an overwhelming stench of fecal matter. As I walked around everything seemed dirty and there was a cage overfilled with birds, which were fighting to find a spot to sit in their cage (let alone fly). In the back there are rows and rows for aquariums that all look like they are in desperate need of cleaning. I still decided to look for what I came for (dog training treats) and after searching through items scattered throughout the store I found some; I noticed that the price tag was in a strange spot and I pulled it up to find the expiration date (over a year past)... a few other items I checked were also expired so I left. I was very grateful to get back outside where I have fresh air and can try to shake the putrid smell from my clothing, unlike the poor animals kept here.

My family recently decided to buy koi to restock our pond after having it empty for about 5 years. At first we stopped at a Petco; the koi there were of bad breeding and limited selection (only five fish in the tank...), but instead of settling on these low quality fish we decided to head over to Midway. I must say I was impressed with the selection! The koi here are not perfect "champion koi", but are pretty and relatively cheap. You can buy anywhere from 4 in to 16 in koi here (including butterfly)!
The staff were very nice and helpful, the guy who went out to net our koi didn't even complain when we wanted very specific and elusive fingerlings! All our questions were answered and we recieved help finding good food and pond netting.
This is a really cool shop to look around! They have a huge selection of tropical fish with plenty of non-aggresives; in fact I almost wish I still had my little 20 gallon so I could buy some of these really cool fish! The reptile/rodent area does have a bit of a smell, but as a previous rat owner I could tell it wasn't from these animals being treated poorly- simply it's a small place and the animals are all in mesh-topped cages( more fresh air for them and more rodent stink for us!)
This is a neat little place and one I'll definetly be coming back too!

I recently bought a discus from them to add to my tank. When I bought him, I asked what their return policy was and they told me that if he died I needed to bring in a water sample and I could get a refund.

Three days later he was being picked on by my other discus so I called (with my receipt) asking to return him. They told me I could get half my money back. I was told the reason for this is they didnt know how I had been treating him and he could die after I return him. When I said that I had asked about their policy and not been told this he said it was posted on one of their walls and hung up on me.

Im very upset. I had specifically asked about their return policy to avoid a situation like this. Be very careful buying from this store. They are rude and misleading.

Great place for fixing tropical fish problems!
We've tried other places but they are not helpful at all.
Midway is very knowledgable and bought a fish from us that got too big for our tank! The've assisted us with many challenging water problems.
This is what a "PET" store should be, knowledgable, helpful and fun!
Lots of cool things to look at, not like the chain stores that are too sterile.

As a reptile enthusiast, I find it difficult to find knowledgeable staff and a variety of necessities for reptile care in a large chain store. Luckily, Midway provides everything I need to care for snakes, lizards, and turtles/tortoises. Unlike chain stores, they sell live feeders, which I feed to all of my snakes, and they are all in good health. Also unlike chain stores, the staff at Midway have real-life experience caring for exotics, and provide honest, reliable information for new owners and experienced handlers. I think the crowd that constantly fills the small shop is testament to their variety of fish and pets, their knowledge, and their range of products to provide a safe, healthy home for every animal that leaves their store. The prices on reptiles, feeders, and enclosures is very competitive. A little patience when the store is busy will serve customers well; the wait is worth it.

this place is crowded, dirty, dusty and smells like BO. Even though i bought 2 fish from them, i will never go back there again... Keep going on Pacific Highway and you find Aquarium Paradise! It's amazing! they've got a great selection, tons of fish, tons of coral, tons of inverts, it's like a hobbyist's dream in there! and it's clean!

I have a 35 gallon aquarium that I bought there and I love their customer service...of course the store is packed its on pac highway right down the street from a community college and several bus stops...we live in washington, people go in to be warm and look around...PATIENCE people. I WILL always go to midway pet for my fish supplies and pet fish...

Okay so I've heard from local friends that this is THE shop to go to for supplies and fish. "great selection" "healthy fish" is what I've been told. NEVER again!!! Both platies I purchased died within 24 hours in an established tank with no water quality issues and only 3 other platies. Brought in a intake screener that my son had crushed and they tried to sell me an entire intake assembly that was $10 for one little piece that if I could find it is only worth $1.
Was at the register for over 10 minutes with 2 small children and was plainly ignored by all employees that walked by, not even a "be there in a minute" or apology for waiting. Then when someone finally was willing to help me they walked away to get a bag for the fish and promptly "forgot" me and made derogatory comments of I should only handle platies and guppies. Sorry but I will not waste my gas, effort, or money to go to this shop for a few cents lower cost on equipment. If my local petshop doesn't have what I need I'll spend the extra money online for shipping instead of going to this shop again!

I have read the bad and good comments here. The place is rather packed, that is true. I get my crickets and purchased my Bearded Dragon there. I looked through the fish tanks today and saw no dead fish. The guys I spoke to there seemed knowledgeable about the animals offered and as a lot of the care is based on opinion, they seemed to know what to say. Just about everything you would want except Dogs is there. If you are going for live feed you may wish to call, as they do run out of stock. The people are always friendly and professional but argue amongst themselves some. Do not mistake this for a PetCo or PetSmart, it isn't. It is a small place and isn't spotless, but isn't super cluttered like some claim. The shop is organized as well as the staff can keep it. I will continue to shop there because they are a good local source for things and have the best price for crickets that are in better health for feed than the big stores seem to have.

They do have ALOT of tanks, but for the most part they have aggressive fish or Cichlids. Small salt water section and some goldfish. But hardly any community tropical fish, oh and the Neon Tetra tank had about 30 dead fish on the bottom and another 40 swimming around. X_X

However they did have a great deal on gravel, 50lbs white rock for $12.95. The equipment for tanks was over prices compared to chain stores. The prices on the fish were the same as anywhere else. I've been checking out alot of shops and so far PetsMart has been the best for common tropical fish and supplies, still looking for a good specialty tropical fish store.

I went in past the animals kept outside in the wind and rain to a small, dank shop that's crammed full of everything. I went over to the lizard area because the fish area was jammed with 5 people. You have to walk sideways in here and stoop if you're over 6 feet tall. There was a well dried, dead lizard in one of the cages. The heat must have been 100 plus. Their prices on fish are ok, but the condition is questionable. Employees do not know anything, so be ready to point and buy your fish with your own knowledge. I was told for three weeks that they would be getting a certain animal in. It never happend, and after three weeks they acted like I was harrasing them. When it gets in, it gets in.

PROS: Basic fish are cheap (goldfish/danos/etc)
CONS: Little or no care given to anything for sale

This pet store located on Pacific Highway at Midway is just depressing. Their store is disorganized with items crowding the isles, and shelves not properly stocked. It was also dirty. They animals do not appear well cared for. We were there on a hot summer day and the smell from the animal cages was terrible. I don't recall their prices being anything to rave about either. I would certainly not purchase animals here for fear they'd be ill. Perhaps they are ok for other items.

My brother lives in kent and he is a fish lover. He has several impressive aquariums in his condo. We were chatting about his fish hobby and I had asked him if it was a lot of work to keep the tanks clean and the fish healthy. He told me that he got off to a great start with his hobby thanks to a close friend and also the folks at Midwav Tropical Fish. They gave him alot of advice about choosing and installing the best tanks for the fish you will be keeping. My brother's fish are so beautiful and they look happy as can be in their roomy aquariums. I am considering getting a small tank going for my apartment. Midwav will be my first stop when i shop for supplies and fish.
