    I think this place is absolutely magical! It's like being transported in to a wonderland. The owners are very kind and really took the time to explain a lot to me and to my daughter. We can't wait to go back.

    One of a kind place to go to, for your home Aqua systems. The people are well knowledgeable on all kinds of aquatic systems. They specialize in the Co². They have a wide variety of setups that help you decide on how to start a beautiful set up of your own. They carry everything that's needed to start and maintain a healthy and vibrant environment and ecosystem for your plant life and marine animals alike. One of the best stores I have gone to in a long time. Family oriented and such humble people there that are so willingly there to help you with your needs. A one of a kind! A must go to before you start any aquarium adventure. I just wish I knew this place before I started long ago. I promise you that once you go here, you will come again and again. With or without Questions to your system. Guaranteed! So come check this place out first then go everywhere else. I promise you that this place will meet and exceed your expectations.

    Gorgeous tanks with lots of healthy fish that are different than what you usually find in the local fish stores

    They have an interesting and unique variety of fish for nano tanks that you don't see anywhere els on the island. Besides the fish, the plants,'s all of high quality

    This is a very small, but well kept aquarium shop. The amount of plants and "aqua scapes" is great. That also have a great vatiety of fish available. Items we have not seen on the islands anywhare else.

    Store has beautiful aquascapes, and if you have any questions, the owners are very educated. Bought 2 low-light plants that really added to my aquarium.

    Such awesome help from the staff! Love going there... starting my first planted tank! I’ll be back a lot more in the coming months to get more tips and help. Woohoo!

    Really cool place to check out. You want to start a hobby with live plants and fish. Go check out. It also on YouTube. Video is called, "breathtaking hawaiian fish store tour."

    Great place if you're looking to get your hands on the stuff in person. A bit of a mark up on the items I did see a price on but about right of you factor in time and convenience. However, a lot of things did not have a price on them. My experience was just window shopping and I didn't purchase anything. Fyi most of the tanks have snails, not sure if there was a process to eliminate them before selling

    Nice setups, gorgeous tanks, and friendly lady....but wow, everything they sell is vastly overpriced. For something worth $6 at another store (and just as healthy, with a LOT more value..), its $20 here. Im sorry, but the prices are unbelievable. A small cup of nice, but barely grown moss for $20, when I could purchase a large cup(7-10 times of what is in the small cup) of very gorgeous, well grown same moss online for $5+$4 shipping? No thank you. Shop here if you're rich...

    Unbelievably magical aquatic landscapes, could not wait to dive in, but every time I've been there the only man I've seen work there was the rudest, most abrasive and uninterested person I've ever interacted with in a store before. The DMV is more accommodating, and the last time I ever went back I had to walk out because of his openly rude attitude. I think the ladies were nice though, sorry.

    Went here a few months ago but the visit still left a sour taste in my mouth. First, if you are planning to go here, make sure you have some extra time to kill because we waited outside for nearly half an hour before we were let in. Second of all, the worker (male) was full of himself and treated us as if we knew nothing about the plants we wanted to get. Lastly, the goods such as the aquascaping turf, rocks, wood, and certain plants were very overpriced as well. In my opinion, it is more conventient and much cheaper to buy your aquascaping materials online rather than this store.
