Almost every fish we have purchased here has died, very disappointing! Most of them were cheaper less expensive fish, but I purchased a gold headed goby from here that died within two days. I informed the staff of what was happening and they told me that they will not guarantee the life of the fish, unless the fish is held in their store after purchase. I was also told that it was probably our water levels or other fish in the tank that caused them to die, but I had the store test our water prior to purchase. I also tested the water levels every day and had 2 different fish stores test the water as well, each time with the water coming back within normal ranges. Poor customer service, poor fish quality, and high prices will have me avoid this store for anything but water, and I recommend the same for anyone who is starting out with a saltwater aquarium.

i like this place, the people here are great, and have always gone out of their way to help me, no matter how small it was. i had bought a used filter when i bought my used tank off craigs list and thought it was missing parts or was broke, they helped me figure the issue out for free, werent pushy on items, helped me figure out what kind of tank would be best for my lifestyle, always add extra feeder fish when my son wants to watch the "feeding frenzie" and test your water for free. the people here have always goten things done, no matter who was working, and the have more then 8 tanks, they have AT LEAST 50 tanks......

I'm new the the hobby and was referred to Aquarium Paradise through a friend. I've just discovered that I was sold 11 lbs of white "base rock" which is advertised on a sign behind the register for $1.99 a lb for the price of "Cultured Live Rock" which is $6.99 a lb. I had purchased Live Rock at the store just 2 days before which is covered in Coraline algae as it should be. I didn't know the difference at the time but they did. That was a quick $50 for them. I asked for Live Rock and paid for Live Rock, but got rubble. So much for promoting the hobby. The register is more important. Buyer beware!

This place does NOT worth your time. Do not bother the very long driving to South of Tacoma because you could find many many better fish stores in Seattle area. We should have listened to comments that gave this store an "one star"; it really deserve no star at all if the system allowed. We read a comment that said the store has large inventory of tanks, and fishes, so we made the trip, and it turned out to be such a disappointment. The store had very small inventory in tanks (about 8 tanks in the entire store) and were over-priced. The fish department was just okay. Not worth the time getting down there for fishes we could find anywhere close by. Goodbye, not coming back ever.

I can remember when Aquarium Paradise was located at the Lakewood Town Center...that's how long my family and I have been turning to them for all our fish/tank needs. We are serious aquarium hobbyists. We have a 125gal salt water tank with a Hawaiian Dragon Moray Eel and a 55gal cichlid tank. It does take money to establish and maintain a tank and its occupants. If you are trying to set up a tank and you want to do it the right way you must ask a lot of questions, otherwise your just throwing your money away. Fish can get rather expensive (trust me...the eel was a nice chunk of change). I have always found the staff to be very helpful and encouraging. Aquarium Paradise and their employees are very informative and all their help, knowledge and willingness to assist us in our needs has made us a true hobbyist. Aquarium Paradise is who we can trust with all our aquarium needs. We would highly recommend to others.

Aquarium Paradise is such an interesting store. They have such a big variety of fish/ tanks. They have fresh water and salt water fish. They have a much bigger selection to chose from than any other store I have been to. The staff is fantastic. Whenever I go into the store they are willing to answer any questions that I have. Not only is the staff great, but the owner; Lonzo is very helpful, he knows how to maintain all of his work and always satisfy his customers. I would not recommend and other store than Aquarium Paradise for fish.

New to the area, trying to find an aquatic shop for our needs. Aquarium Paradise was the first place we went to, and were very disappointed. I called first, and was told to call back later as they had 'too many customers in the store to be on the phone.' We went to the store. 2 different employees helped us, they didn't follow through with their explanations, and were rude. Upon checkout, Lonzo was at the register, and was also rude. Decent store, but the people that work there make it a place to skip. I would not recommend them to anyone who is looking for a friendly salesperson.

I have stopped by and talked to Lonzo 5 times over the past 6 weeks asking for information and quote. Each time he promised to look up the information and contact me. Each time he asked for my contact information and to this day he has never contacted me nor does he have the information or quote I requested when I go in. I would think after so many visits that he would feel my request was authentic. Buyers beware - don't waste your time here... I have also found this place to be immoral. The number of times I have been in and over-heard Lonzo talk to other customers... if you are new to the hobby watch out, he will sell you product you don't need...

I wouldn't shop there if my life depended on it. In my opinion and experience, Lanzo is a back stabber and a con artist. I agree that most of the staff at the store is friendly and knowledgable but I do not think that off sets the extreme moral issues of the owner.
