Stopped by Fishy Business today and all I can say is WOW!!! This is the best salt water place in Austin by far. I've been to AquaTek, Aqua Dome and River City Aquatics but they pale in comparison to Fishy Business. I have been out of the hobby for 7 years and decided to start up a reef tank again. The place is super clean and the livestock and tanks are iImmaculate and the best part is his prices are the best in town. I spoke with the owner about 2 hours in between helping his customers. He is very knowledgeable and gave me a lot of tips and advice on setting up my reef tank. I ended up buying some live rock and a clean up crew. I'm going back to buy some corals this weekend. You can tell he loves what he does and this is a passion for him. It is about time Austin had a store like this. His store is unique in that all his tanks that he sells coral from look like display tanks. Do you self a favor and stop by here. It is a great experience and the owner is friendly.

This is a really awesome store for livestock! Their cichlid selection was incomparable and the prices were way cheaper than some of the other local stores. Some of the community tanks were empty but I still saw a lot of fish I had never seen at the chain stores. The employees that helped me were very knowledgeable about mixing fish and helping me get my water chemistry right, very patient with beginners and questions. What I really liked is that when I had picked out a fish that I thought was fine, an employee noticed it was sick and would not sell it to me. Very rare in a fish store! I was not expecting much of a live plant selection and was pleasantly surprised by the variety (although I've been in before when there was not much available). The only disappointment was their hardware--very few replacement bulbs and hardly any selection of filters, and I stepped in a big puddle on the floor.
The review below entitled "beware" was written by a customer who completely neglected his aquarium. There was not much we could do when he finally came to us, but we tried to help regardless. Please feel free to drop by our store sometime and see how we really take care of our customers.
