Everybody knows Aquatico Aquarium has a fantastic array of great tropical fish at competitive prices....if you haven't seen for yourself check out the fabulous Facebook reviews! Me....for over 32 years my passion & geeky obsession has been FANCY GOLDFISH! I am so excited to update & share this review with all you keen goldfish keepers... When I first met Son he was certainly already passionate about fish however this business was quite new. He had a few small tanks of various goldfish both common & "FANCY GOLDFISH" I'm so happy the range of fancy goldfish he stocks now are second to none in Melbourne! Excellent Ranchus, extremely good quality Orandas from itty bitty to 22cm the variety he keeps are great but at very reasonable, competitive prices & importantly, optimum health. You do need to be fast because they sell very fast now that word has spread! Son has a keen eye for quality & will happily do his best to source what it is you're looking for. He is well connected, practices as an Aquarist with pride, the upmost integrity & certainly deserving of the great reputation, he & lovely wife Vicky have achieved. Both are a pleasure to deal with! It's so nice to leave an aquarium feeling this sense of satisfaction! ALL fish at Aquatico Aquarium are kept in optimum, conditions for the health & wellbeing of that particular species! He takes pride in standing by the excellent premium quality & conditions of all stock! It's refreshing to have discovered such an UNASSUMING, EXTREMELY PASSIONATE, GENUINELY HONEST, KNOWLEGABLE, FRIENDLY, HELPFUL, WELCOMING, PROFESSIONAL AQUARIST (that's a lot of adjectives I know! deservedly so!) I love that his small selection that used to be out the back has exploded! Expanded into a vast array of lovely large tanks with the best variety of beautiful Fancy goldfish in town! Don't go past them for your new set up either. With very competitive prices on all your needs equipment, lighting, filtration, media, plants food & chemicals you will be doing yourself a favour! Even if you're not a local... Son will happily help you & you can rest assured you can rely on their advice, honesty, expertise & recommendation from your specific needs. Don't be shy to ask if there's something you don't see.... Son can proudly stand by his reputation as the "go to guy" for ALL your needs he will stand by the quality of his stock, products, accessibility to competitive fair pricing. They do not sell you things you don't need to waste money on yet help you with an enquiry big or small. You child's first pet goldfish bowl to the most elaborate set up fully stocked with the highest quality exotic species. I am proud to use them exclusively and no longer need to source anything interstate or overseas! See for yourself! You'll be impressed!

DO NOT GO HERE! Saw several dead fish and owners noticed them too but just walked past and continued doing other things. Water everywhere in the shop with pipes all over the floor. All the beta fish were still, not swimming around very sad. Saw poor handling of fish, just grabbed it with their hand and then threw it into a tank. The building stinks and is ridiculously humid, barely any vegetation in most tanks. Many fish in small containers they can’t even move around in on the shelves with yellowed water, no clue how long they’d been there either.

  • Ann Sarreal

Went today to check some axolotls for my daughter and successfully reserved 2 to pick up a week later as we have to set up a tank first. I've been searching and didn't realise there's a good pet place nearby that has them, there's lots of other fish varieties and aquarium supplies too! The guy who helped us has topnotch customer service skills and we're very happy. Highly recommended!

  • Phu Lai

My new favourite fish store. Mainly freshwater fish. Great collection of livestock, plants, and hardscape materials (rocks, driftwood, etc.). There are some great display tanks too. Pricing is one of the best in Melbourne. Customer service still leaves a lot to be desired though. Very worth a visit in general, will be back again.

  • Charlotte Evelyn

Absolutely disgusting tanks. Every tank is overcrowded and filthy. Stuff all over the floor. Betta fish in tiny glass tanks with brown/yellow water stacked on stop of each other in open styrofoam boxes on the floor in the tank room. Strong smell. Overpriced driftwood. Go to a different aquarium. Don't go here.

  • Cincel Diao

We went there today and were very disappointed. DO NOT go to this place. 0 stars for customer service!! The guy there didn’t seem interested in the customers and even looked irritated when we asked questions! He did this to the other customers as well. I would not spend a single penny on this place!

  • Mr.Syed Abdul Razzaq

You deserve 10 stars! Excellent customer service and very humble, Today i was late for 5minutes and was'nt able to find the location. The Owner waited till i reached eventhough he was closed before 5mins of my arrival. He did wait for customers sake. Appreciate it. Thank you!

  • Shamz R

BEST AQUARIUM shop in the West side! Very helpful staff and fishes are within affordable price range and from past experience, they are healthy and well kept. All the exotic fishes we purchased off them has lived on long, compared to some we bought from another shop!

  • Manh Hoang

Great place great prices . The staff r helpful and generous and the water in some of the tanks is brown from Indian almond leafs it's not dirty just letting u know ... the fish love that water it's healthy 4 them... so yeah 5 stars u won't regret going there …

  • Kirsty Purcell

Bought Aluminium plants here, which were fully submerged in their tank. Later to find out this isn’t even an aquatic plant, when it died and made a mess all over the tank. Obviously should have done my research but also don’t think it’s cool to sell like this.

  • Jesse Wilson

THE BEST! Fantastic service, wide range and the best quality. They have rare aquatic plants, mosses and quality shrimp! Everything you need. They also stock rare betta, ADA substrates and a wide range of aquascape goods. One of my favourite places! …

  • Christopher Jordan

Aquatico is an exceptional store with a huge range in live fish, plants and hardscape. The owners are always wanting to help and show a genuine interest in your enquiry. The best Betta fish available in Melbourne- this is your one stop shop! Love coming here!

  • Richard Hayward

I'm very glad to live so close to this amazing shop. There are two rooms stocked full of tanks with exotic flora and fauna to explore. I drove past this place as it's more of a warehouse than a shop. But once inside, there's plenty to look

  • shadow cadence

Only go here if you are an experienced fishkeeper, know exactly what you want going in, and have the means to care for sick fish when you get them. Many tanks are hard to see into because of algae. Many sad looking bettas and sad looking

The store goal is not to have log term customers. As a beginner I went there hoping to get professional opinion to lead me but I didn't. I spent over 400$ there on the equipment and fish and two of my fish died in

The guy was really aggressive with getting the fish out and proceeded to get careless enough with the bag he dropped them on the floor bursting the bag open and two fish fell out.
