I am hoping people will read this because I wouldn't want anyone to go through what I have when I purchased fish from this store. The two younger gentleman were so sweet, super friendly and very kind. I spent 43$ on fish and was so excited about the variety. the very next day I had white spots all over my fish, Ich. Every fish from that store has died except the two I took back the next day, and the two I took back... He threw in a tank of which he sells fish from, so no kidding his fish spread ich and die. I started ich treatment right away and still lost my fish, including some of my older fish I've had for years. The older man I'm going to assume is the owner or manager was very rude. He wouldn't even refund my fish I brought back because they were alive....
I was told if it's within 7 days you get a full refund. So as the rest started dieing off I didn't even attempt to try for a refund, I knew it would be pointless. So after spending 43$ on fish I lost, not including the 40$ on treatment for Ich, also the live plants I had to pull from the tanks to keep ich away....
What a awful experience this has been, this is no way to run a business. word of mouth is very powerful, I wasn't surprised to hear a very similar story from a co-worker who happened to go through the same ordeal at this very store. Poor fish
Ok, So I walked in to this place and BAM! AWESOMENESS! Great knowledge, great fish, corals, plants, salt, fresh they know it all and if they don't they said they would find out. that is definitely not something you get everywhere. Great job you guys!!! I will definitely come back and highly recommend them!
People that leave a bad review and then go to petco or petsmart and buy 100 dollars worth of fish all at once... I would never listen too. And hey moron it doesn't matter if its a down economy they sell fish aka living creatures I would tell you to screw off too lol
Today I visited this store and was impressed by the beauty I stepped into. Just walking around and browsing the store I could tell that they cared for and had knowledge of aquariums and fish. Recently I started a 10 gallon tank with live plants and have been struggling with getting it straight. I spoke with a gentleman for about 20 min on what it takes to deal with live plants. In that 20 min I felt I had more knowledge than ever before. This gentleman did not rush me and I felt he took pleasure in teaching people about aquariums. I really enjoyed my experience and can not wait to return to the store.
I went here a few days ago and had a much better experience then I didn't at Boise's Freshwater Aquariums.And they had better prices this place would be 5 stars if they had a nicer tank setup for freshwater.Another thing that makes this place better is they have saltwater.
Try the local aquarium clubs and get your fish at the same place the stores get them but without the markup...Try www.craigslist.org and the www.idahoaquariumclub.com for wholesale fish prices.
These guys prices are way better then Boises freshwater aquariums wich is the highest prices in town.
The ppl that run this store have horrid customer service skills. I was looking to buy some tropical fish for my aquarium and the older gal thats in charge tried to run me out of the store by telling me &quot; whatever fish you pick are just going to die anyway&quot; it seems she doesn't want to make money in this hard times. I would think they would be desperate for business after just opening anew. So I instead went to the local petco and got fantastic customer service and bought about 100 dollars worth of fish. It's been about 3 months now and the fish are thriving and not one death. Thank you to the horrid service at the fish aquariums and stuff, for reminding me it's not always smart to buy local.

Bill has the only place in the boise area that has what you need and has the knowledge to help you with any marine or fresh water problems. Sometime when he is very busy it is hard to get his attention. I have however found that he will devote to you the same attention that he is giving to whomever he is busy with. I would recommend Fish Aquariums and Stuff to anyone who would like to break into the world of marine pets or anyone who is currently involved. I have been involved with marine pets for several years. Bill has solved almost every problem I have ever had in relation to marine pets and equipment.
