Nice and knowledgeable. Always ask before buying: is this fish going to get along with that fish? Is this fish medication safe for snails?What temperature this fish needs Overall? Water quality?Overall they got healthy and happy fish and helpful staff.

This is one of the best aquatic based stores in San Diego. Most of the fish they have are more freshwater based rather than saltwater. They accept donated fish, they quarantine newly arrived fish, and the staff know a-lot about most of the fish. Definitely coming back here more often.
