John, James and Anthony run the best aquarium and small animal store on Long Island. Bar None. South Shore Tropicals is well stocked with everything and anyone you need or want in your aquarium. In addition to those beautifully presented aquatics, they offer all manner of bird, reptile and even cat and dog supplies for their customers convenience. Their combined knowledge of all that they stock and sell is extremely impressive and pretty hard to find. All of this, of course, offered at excellent prices and with sincere, friendly service. Growing a business and a steadfast customer following in an ever shrinking environment of neighborhood aquarium and pet stores is no mean feat. Running a store like theirs, requires constant cleaning, feeding, monitoring and stocking. You will never find them sitting around chatting. Instead, you will see them in constant motion taking care of this beautiful store. This is a jewel of a store in a sea of corporate run warehouses-where even finding a kid at the cash register is a challenge; no less someone who knows their stuff! I would never go anywhere else,

I have been going to South Shore Tropicals for over 5 years now. They always have the cleanest tanks and decent prices on fish. If you have ever been to chain places like Petco, youll notice how dirty the tanks are and often how there are a bunch of dead fish in the tanks. South Shore Tropicals has its occasional dead fish, but the clean tanks and helpful staff make up for it. The only thing I wish they had was a better selection of plants. They are often sold out of my favorite plant the Purple Waffle.
Fish live stock - has gone from the best ever. To shall we say - I should have stayed away. What a mistake! Ick like I have never witnessed before. Internal as well as external parasites. And some with issues I never have seen before. I guess they sell you fish.... Then fish treatments to get them well. What a racket. My God what were they thinking. Better yet what was I thinking. I guess as always. Caveat Emptor! Buyer Beware!

Honestly SST is the best Aquarium/LFS on Long Island. The staff is generous with their time and helpful. It seems like they know every customer that walks in the door. Great selection and return policy. Shop around and then go to South Shore Tropical and they will beat ANY price. They saved me $150 on a 75 setup. You wont meet nicer folks then James and co.
Amazing service! Wanted to get two baby cockatiels for my wife, and they were more than helpful in getting the birds in time for her birthday, as well as providing me with everything that we needed to get started. The staff is very friendly, always well stocked with items and very free with their advice...buy local and you will be satisfied every time.
Ive been a customer for over 10 years and I have yet to be disappointed. Their stock is always healthy from plants to fish and there is always a great variety. I also find their volunteers to be very knowledgable and helpful. These guys know what theyre doing and Id definitely recommend this store for anyone interested in their pets.
You will not find a better aquarium shop on Long Island. Extremely friendly, helpful and go the extra mile to help a customer. The staff here is the reason why I got into the aquarium hobby going from one tank to 7 tanks. They will get you what you need. I truly cant say enough about the overall experience at South Shore Tropicals.
An amazing array of different kinds of exotic pets and they all seem so happy! I love the parrot that you can visit and it just crawls onto your shoulder its so cute. The customer service is amazing. The guys that work here are so friendly and knowledgeable. The prices are great too. One of the best places Ive ever been to!! <3
Not only the best pet store on Long Island but the best staff. All have been in the business for 20+ years and know everything and anything you would ever need to know. Stay away from. Chain stores where some 15 year old that has no idea is working. This is the only place you need to go. Well worth the drive.
They have the most helpful and knowledgeable staff. Great selection of pets and supplies.. If they dont have what you are looking for theyll recommend something better or order it for you. I would recommend them to everyone and I do.. Go there you wont be disappointed.. Petco Petsmart. dont compare....
Super friendly and informative. Got our latest pet from here, a cockatiel. Awesome bird and very tame. Have been coming here for years for all sorts of pet items. Competitive pricing and much more personable staff than the other big pet store chains. Support small local businesses!
i discovered this shop about a month ago, and i got to say, by far this is the friendliest and most helpful petstore ive been to ever. Definetly not the largest shop but they have a very nice variety of fish and plants, excellent quality.
