This place already has my business for life. I've ordered hundreds of live fish online from every of the top retailers, and while some are still very good, this place stands. I've had had HORRIBLE lucky finding a good-sized, good priced iridescent shark and have had 6 arrive at my house from other places with ich, diseases, fungus, and although I am a hell of a fish doctor I have only had one live. I got two two PRIMO specimens from Pet Zone today that I cannot be happier about. They shipped next day, not delay. I also got two narrow leaf Java Fern which I haven't seen in other stores and where in absolute in impeccable condition. You guys rock. -MM

Bought koi here and bought koi at aquatic warehouse on complex st. Bought what seems the same size and quality koi at both places. At Pet Zone the price was $17 each and aquatic was 4 for $100 or $30 each. The selection was much better at Pet Zone and the prices are cheaper. Wanted to give Aquatic warehouse a negative review due to the guy that nets the fish swapped fish on me ( I believe intentionally), quickly wrapped them up and took my money. Didn't get my red and white koi I really wanted. Instead he swapped it with a yellow fish (YUK !). This lady at Pet Zone is very nice honest person. Everything was straight forward and much easier to select and complete my purchase.
