My daughter gave me a pico sized aquarium for my birthday, as she knew that I had long admired her reef tanks. Yesterday, after completing the cycling the tank, we visited the aquarium store to pick up my tanks’ first residents. We decided to try out California Aquariums, (CA), as they are local to us; this was our first visit. CA is located in what I’d term an industrial park setting, so I didnt really expect much when we drove up. When we entered the store, however, that impression was dispelled. The store is very clean & well-organized. The tanks are well-tended and they have a great variety of corals. (They also have a smallish selection of fish, but corals appear to be the specialty.) We were met at the door by Eleanor, a 2 year old German Shepard, who belongs to one of the store’s two proprietors, Elliot, who helped us. (Being dog fans, this was a plus for us, as Eleanor is quite friendly.) Since this my first reef tank, I had lots of questions. Elliot could not have been more pleasant and patient in answering those questions. In short, the service was great, the store is stocked with lots of beautiful corals, and the prices are very reasonable. We’ll definitely be going back soon!
California Aquariums is one of the best small Local Fish Store (LFS) in the Los Angeles County. They stock (they call it coral cellar) some of the most amazing and eclectic collection of corals from high end mushrooms, zoanthids, scolymias, fungias, acans up to their tremendous assortment of beautiful acroporas and montiporas and MORE…!!! California Aquarium’s prices are fair and very competitive. Austin and Elliot always provide informative advice and most of all incredible service, and they are very honest. I am a proponent of supporting our local fish stores, and I am grateful to show my heartfelt support for California Aquariums. Please visit their scenic facility in Reseda. It is a very clean facility with tremendous amount of eye candies. What makes me smile from time to time is when their big friendly dog is present and would greet me like an old friend. California Aquariums is a must visit LFS on the weekend, and disappointment would be a forgotten vocabulary. Enjoy your visit, and I guarantee that you would leave there with a striking nugget with you!
These guys are as good as it gets. After years of disappointment and frustration with other stores and tank servicing - at last I found a place that understands both the science and art of salt water. These guys take care of my tank as if it was theirs. And their selection of fish and corals is surpassed only by their deep knowledge of both. I enthusiastically recommend them.
First time visiting the store after theReef a Palooza 2016 event. The store was very neat and well maintained, frag tanks are well placed and designed, good lighting, good flow. Very nice display tank. Lots of corals to choose from, fairly priced pieces. Will come back and visit soon. Austin was very accomodating and knows his stuff!!!
California Aquariums is quite a little treasure! The shop owners Austin and Elliott are quite versed in the saltwater aquarium hobby. These two industrious young men have both worked on my system and I sing their praises to the ocean Gods! So do yourself a favor and please do check them out, you will not be sorry I promise!
I found this shop on Yelp and Im so glad I stopped by! I had been looking for high end Zoanthids and lps frags but didnt want to ship corals. They are local to me and also offer servicing or tank sitting while Im out of town on business. Thank you Austin & Elliot!!!!
Sell really nice quality corals here. And the pricing is really good as well. Definitely will be shopping here more often
