The employee helping us seemed very knowledgeable and friendly but most of the tanks didn't look clean and a lot of the fish seemed to be struggling to breath. Also there was duck weed in most of the planted tanks, which I don't want therefore didn't purchase any plants from them. I did buy some awesome dragon stone though, they had a very nice rock selection.
I've bought fish from here three times, with a year in between each. Within a week of buying from them all my other fish in the aquarium dies. This last time I went in and spoke with the store manager. He tried to make it seem like I killed them. Even after I told him I've had aquariums for over 30 years and this was the first time I've had this problem...only after I buy from here. The first year it happened from him, those fish had been in my aquarium over 10 years. I told the manager all I want was a replacement. He denied me. Over $100 worth of sharks. Because he do not stand behind his product, I will no long purchase from here, nor recommend. I went to pets mart and bought the same fish a week later. It's been six months now and they are still living.
We love coming here for our aquaculture needs. Knowledgeable staff, good product selection, and the fish and aquatic plants look great! Yeah the prices are a little higher, but that's how it's got to be unless you want nothing but the big chains and get stuck with crappy merchandise and crappier fish. Aquatropics all the way!
Let me first start by talking about the positives of this place. The overwhelming positive of this place is the staff. They are extremely helpful and they are extremely knowledgeable. Also, any type of equipment that you need they will help you get. If I were doing a review only on staff, it would be five stars. Now, the negatives. I would be cautious on buying fish from this place. A lot of their fish seem unhealthy, & I think that they have too many fish for the number of staff in order for them to properly take care of them. Also, these guys have amazing aquarium plants, however make sure you treat for snails before adding them to your tank I did get in infestation of snails after purchasing plants. Overall I would definitely recommend, however make sure you do your research before purchasing fish and plants.
This is a great place. Fish and plants are always top notch, staff is knowledgeable, friendly and have a great work ethic for serving customers.
