If you love fish, this is the place

This shop is clean and the fish look alive and healthy. If you visit here often, you will see that they sell everything and get fresh stock regularly. I have been to a few other places that do not have lively fish and they don't bother to remove them. This place is clean and the staff very kowledgeable and friendly.

The Best Little Store You Never Heard Of

I've been keeping aquariums for over 40 years. My very first job was at an aquarium store, at 13, and I hope my last job will also be at an aquarium store. I managed The Aquarium, in Pleasant Hill and Concord for many years, and we were proud of our store. It was big, clean and modern. Ocean Aquarium is small, clean and low-tech. And the fish Love it there! I'll tell you why. Justin and his family show the love th... view more

A family owned business. Very knowledgeable, and incredibly nice people. Always helpful. Highly re

AAA+ These folks have been the shining light of our fish keeping experience. Their tanks always appear clean and healthy, at least to our untrained eyes.

Echoing all the previous raves!

I went here based on the previous reviews, and was so glad I did! I have a sick fish and called ahead to see if I should bring him in, and the owner was friendly and to the point, ""Bring him in! I'll tell you what's wrong!"" Turned out to be an excellent precursor to the place - knowledgeable, efficient, to the point.\r \r As previous reviews have said, it's definitely in an unexpected area. You're basically drivi... view more

The best fish shop for plants, rare freshwater tropicals and reliable friendly advice

I've been going to Ocean Aquarium for over ten years and would never buy fish anywhere else. Justin, Ady and their daughter Josephine are all very friendly and knowledgeable about the hobby and are always happy to talk to you or help with any problems you might be having. A lot of other stores are just businesses trying to make a buck but Justin truly loves the hobby and is always busy maintaining his tanks, which ar... view more

My fish vendor/psychologist

I have been to a lot of fish stores - this is the best for fish health and abundance of useful information. The fish are so happy there - you can immediately tell the water, plants anf fish are in perfect condition. Justin has told me how to care for fish, tend to them when they get sick, and even how to manage the breeding season for my difficult African cichlids. He also helped me spot problems with my live plan... view more

Best Aquarium Shop in Bay Area

This is like an underground place for real fish geeks that know about this place. Justin and Ada have been amazing to me, they always know what kind of fish I have and what I'm looking for. Their quality is 2nd to none (#1) good variety, healthy fish and plants, never had a problem, and I've been shopping ther for years. Thanks Justin!

For Serious People with No Clue

Went to this store on a recommendation from this site. It is exactly a hole in the wall, but open every day from 11 Am to 7PM and the couple who own it are very sweet, passionate and excited about what they do with fish. When you walk in, it is dark, a little dog may greet you as you step over him, but there are fish everywhere! We went with my 4 year old son, and walked out full of knowledge for our 10 gallon tan... view more

awesome freshwater fish store

store is small cramped hole in the wall, but the staff was exceedingly helpful/ knowledgealbe. Unlike most larger fish stores I saw NO sick or dead fish in any of the tanks. They even gave us a free bag of water from the aquarium our fish came out of to help set up our new tank's bacterial balance. Overall awesome, everything you need to set-up a new aquarium was there, and all my questions were answered.
