    Bummed I didn't know about this place sooner. Excellent aquatics store. Two full floors of salt water and fresh water fish with knowledgeable staff that goes above and beyond. Worth checking out, whether you are just curious about aquatics or are a seasoned veteran.

    Great customer service. We spin a wheel at check out for additional discount. My son loves spinning the wheel and I love the savings. Very knowledgeable staff on site.

    Super knowledgeable and helpful staff. Prices comparable to the local big guys. Better variety of marine and fresh water critters.

    Chris is such a knowledgeable guy. Seriously an expert in his field. Not only does he give me an answer for every one of my many questions, but he is very humble about it. Usually guys who are experts in niche hobbies talk down to newbies for asking stupid questions, but every conversation with Chris is always respectful, helpful, and understanding. Chris and the others are definitely what make Coral fish hawaii more than just another fish store, it's a place for knowledge and advice too.

Clean n very spacious freshwater section.. some good people here ..great selection of aquarium plants and fish food . Oh and yes if your into saltwater fish they always have varieties that you probably won't find at most other shops..

    Outstanding spot, a local business that is absolutely worth supporting. So much has been done by the state to make it difficult for them to run and still they continued. Head and shoulders better than any other fish store on the island.

    Great place for all your aquarium needs. For freshwater, ask for Skyler. Boy, she really knows her fish!

    I'll stop by on my last day in Hawaii this store is apparently a middleman for a lot of the Pacific and they ship to local fish stores on the mainland because of the volume they sell fish for almost wholesale price but even though they ship out fish by the hundreds they only ship wholesale and do not ship any retail I wish I would have found them before my last day so that I could have arranged to have got some of these beautiful fish ship back home

    Always friendly, always helpful, these guys know how to make your tank work, and which fish are compatible in your aquarium. Thanks! I have been a customer for years. They will also bring in whatever you ask for, provided it's legal, of course!

    Knowledgeable and helpful. They have a whole new set up of freshwater which is really nice. Only 4 star because it was a bit uncomfortably warm in the store. Kind of to be expected since it's whole front is open but it does make it harder to shop.

    A very good fish store if you are looking for more of a selection outside of PetCo. The staff was helpful with answering our questions regarding what species they can get and what they can't get. We were surprised to find that no invertebrates are imported and that no live rock is collected (however it does make sense for keeping people from self collecting from Hawaii waters). The freshwater section had some interesting fish not seen in other stores too! If I decide to setup a tank in Hawaii - I'll get my equipment and fish from here.

    Very helpful, I went there for plants and feeder food for my turtle but they never have in stock

    Cute mom and pop shop with off island fishies.

    2 level fish store. Saltwater on the first floor and freshwater on the second. Two staircases to reach the second floor. Second floor not wheelchair accessible. Went for freshwater fish perusing. Wider selection of species than you will find at the big box pet stores. Plenty of room left for them to add more tanks or supplies. Beware of items missing price tags. I was caught off guard at checkout, but after a quick price check online, the price was fair and comparable to other retailers for that item. Staff was very friendly and made sure they came up to me to ask if I needed assistance. Will return.

    I bought 3 green chromis, 1 humu and 1 golden pilot from these guys afternoon Saturday. We did the drip method to put our new fish in there new home. All fishes are doing well besides the golden pilot that died not even one day. I paid 80 dollars on that fish. So i called coral fish and let them know what happened, and the guy told me theres no guarentee on the fish. Im mean the fish didn't even last one day, but the rest are doing fine, maybe the fish was sick. When we went there to there store we seen couple fishes dead floating in there tank. All i asked if they could atleast give me a different fish didn't have to be worth 80 dollars atleast half the price i was asking for. The guy told me no and there store would be losing money. I had my tank for 3 years now and ive been a return customer all this time. But not no more. Be aware of the fish you buy from them. Fishes are expensive and there are no guarantees in this store.
