I love this shop. I am positive they take amazing care of their fish and every fish i have had from them has been extremely healthy and lived a long happy life. Unlike petsmart and petco, their fish are kept in large spacious tanks, just like they should. Their customer service is great, and its a local business. I personally prefer a store that has locally raised fish, AND your supporting idahoans and american jobs.... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

I am a regular at many fish stores around Boise and Boise's Freshwater is all-around good quality. The brothers who run the place are hard workers and fair business people. They have always treated me with respect and dealt with me honestly. They aren't just after the dollar. I would recommend this place for sure.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
It was way overpriced for what it is, it looked like a big building, and from looking at it, promised much more than it was. The exhibit walk through area is tight and got cluttered a lot. if you walk through slowly, it takes about 15-20 min, but you can hang out a little at the exhibits where you can touch stingrays and small sharks. We tried to feed them as well, and got about 5 krill that the fish didn't want unti... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
-Buyer Beware- I read the first review of this company posted here. What a bunch of bull. (Probably posted by the shop owner himself.) First, if you get the nice young girl to help you, you'll get five star service. (So this review is half praise and half damning.) Here's my experience: The shop owner (an older guy) is a real jerk. He will act professional when other people are in the shop, but when the o... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
Girl working at Boise's Freshwater Aquariums does not know fish names or sexes or prices or how to work the cash machine.I would have been upset if she charged me the real prices after that ordeal.Check out that fish store on Fairview its better and cheaper.Was this review helpful?Yes(1) No|Flag Abuse
We have been very please to have our family work with us. There is a learning curve and I am very proud of my daughter. Come back again and check out her progress.
I agree with the below comment go straight to the local Breeders and get your fish for the same price the store pays.Check www.craigslist.org and www,idahoaquariumclub.com for better prices and fish.Was this review helpful?Yes(2) No|Flag Abuse
We only ask that those who are interested in high quality fish at a very reasonable price come visit our store. It is easy to say things about folks, but with us you can simple come see for yourself.
Try the idaho Aquarium Club (dot ) com for better prices straight from the same breeders Boise Freshwater purchases from. Same fish without the middle man.Was this review helpful?Yes(3) No|Flag Abuse
A good portion of our fish come from quality local breeders and our setup. We are breeding form wild caught fish and have the hifghest quality fish available. The folks selling online are sketchy at best and the Idaho Aquarium Club is fostered by a person who has a personal interest in devalueing any LFS in the valley.
I have been keeping fish for more than 35 years, and have been waiting for a quality Fresh water aquarium shop for a very long time in Boise. I was getting my African cichlids in Portland, there is no need any longer. If they don't have it , they can get it, and man do these two brothers know their fish ! If you want the RIGHT information and selection on cichlids, or other fresh water fish you search just ended. Thi... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No(3)|Flag Abuse
