  • "If you are into marine tanks , this is the place to go! It's like walking into another world! Just don't expect any service if Jacob is working and your not Chinese! Been a customer for over a decade and spend hundreds at least every visit and I visit regularly just to be ignored! Service is terrible unless Jono or Lauchie are working"

If you are into marine tanks , this is the place to go! It's like walking into another world! Just don't expect any service if Jacob is working and your not Chinese! Been a customer for over a decade and spend hundreds at least every visit and I visit regularly just to be ignored! Service is terrible unless Jono or Lauchie are working. . Thanks Jacob for your loyalty! Very professional Jacob, only reason I continued to come in was I knew u where away and would get service not ignored. Emojis? Grow up! Iam not upset over a few dollars Iam upset at you and how you can lie and laugh. I literally had to yell to get attention after being grumbled at by some tall rude Asian kid. Then sold a faulty heater. So yes it's very true. Plus your whole system of aqua dollars is a scam. Mine mysteriously disappear. Spent so much supporting you from when you started but you only really dealt with my wife. Plus most items are overpriced and still you laugh at a customer instead of calling or discussing? Maybe Jono should look after your customer service, u have no clue mate. Nice guy when u want to be. If it wasn't for Jono would have left it on 1.

Awesome shop, by far the best of the half dozen or so I've visited around Melbourne. This shop caters specifically to salt water, which means they really know their stuff. The selection of coral is second to none with huge frag tanks taking up the majority of the floorspace, all neatly ordered and immaculately maintained. Other shops in the area are put to shame by how well maintained and clean the tanks and entire shop is, clearly staffed by people who care about what they're and when I'm spending hundreds of dollars in livestock for my tanks I want to know they come from people who care and take the extra steps to keep things tidy. Thanks for the experience, you've earned a loyal customer for sure!

I drive all around Victoria for work and I stop at every aquarium when I have the chance. I can say with confidence that this is the best shop by far! The biggest selection of corals to choose from with a fair price and the quality is unreal. The staff is highly knowledgeable and actually enjoy taking the time to explain things in fine detail. You can tell they enjoy it as Jonathon is a key member of the "novice reef keepers australia" Facebook page who takes even more time to help out everyone in need and make reef keeping accessible and enjoyable for everyone. If you come to this shop, know that you will be in the right hands.

Made a purchase of some co2 scrubbing media after a week of it not arriving I contacted aquamarine and was told that they didn’t have it in stock currently it would be arriving next week. Called back the next week and they had issues with their delivery company and had to send it via another courier a week later it finally arrived. Having burned thru the media very quickly I have now returned to using the co2 media from reef pure it’s a little more expensive but lasts 3 times as long and is less waste at the end of the day Will not be purchasing anything from aquamarine Aquaristic in the future

  • Beth O'Brien

Always had a fantastic experience at AA. Jono is a real down to earth bloke, good sense of humour and he always has stacks of frags. All frags have been healthy, robust and happy and are doing great guns in my tank. I’m based in NSW, and corals always arrive in top nick. The only time I had issue was when StarTrack messed up, and even then, Jono sent me some replacement frags the following week! His customer service is top knotch and I’ve recommended Jono/AA to around 20 other reefers, probably more. If you want quality healthy corals and fish Jono is your man!!!

  • Brad Prinze

Placed an order for coral and inverts. Was shipped via star track on Monday and didn’t arrive until Thursday. Only 3/5 of the coral arrived dead and one shrimp. Very helpful before placing the order although referred to DOA policy after it arrived. Apparently if it is delivered within 24 hours and is DOA then they can do something about it although if StarTrack take longer than 24 hours to deliver the package then there’s nothing they can do about it. If StarTrack is unreliable then perhaps move to a different courier so customers don’t receive a box of death.

  • tony Matthew

Very poor experience, spent $150 buy a blue tang just one day was dead , contact the owner he requested my provide the sample of water and fish photo him , I said I can do it my water is standard . then after half hour he deny what he said and just tell me nothing to do that . I provide some photo evidence like the fish abdomen color is white and serious wound then he blacklist me Do not buy any fish from this shop! 大家不要在这家店买东西 本来以为是中国人开的 ,没想到同胞就会欺负华人. 买的蓝吊一天就死了 入缸后就藏着平躺状态极其不好 . 这个店主挺黑的让我提供这证据那证据 我都给了 完了就给我拉黑 大家千万不要找他买

  • Anton Shcherbakov

Unusual selection of corals for a very affordable price. Despite cold winter nights, corals always arriving healthy, due to carefully and professionally organized packaging. Sent multiply emails with lots of questions, all emails has been replied almost immediately, John clearly doing his best to provide second to none customer care. Best corals related online shopping experience i ever had . Hopefully, one day I'll be in Melbourne to see this amazing store in person.........

  • Azi Sheikh

Outstanding, potentially the best range of coral in Melbourne. This place is a must for the reefer hobbyist. Well worth the drive and Jono and the team have excellent customer service.
