Success! Thanks for posting your review of Boises Fresh Water Aquariums. You’ve done the world some good today.


Best store in town. I've visited 20+ times in the last 2 years and never a bad experience. I've always received excellent service and healthy fish.

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 more

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.

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 more

-Buyer Beware-

-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 more

Girl working there dont know fish

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.

I agree with the below comment go straight to the local Breeders and get your fish for the same price the store pays.Check and www, for better prices and fish.

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.

Want better prices

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.

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.
