I recently visited the Roxy Aquarium and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with their exceptional customer support. From the moment I walked in, the staff greeted me warmly and went above and beyond to ensure I had an enjoyable experience. The employees at Roxy Aquarium were incredibly knowledgeable about the various species of marine life on display. They eagerly answered all of my questions, sharing fascinating facts and insights about the underwater world. Their passion for marine conservation and education was evident in their enthusiasm and willingness to engage with visitors. Not only were the staff members friendly and approachable, but they also took the time to educate me about proper care and maintenance of aquariums. They provided valuable advice on selecting the right fish and aquatic plants for my own aquarium at home. Their expertise helped me make informed decisions and ensure the well-being of my aquatic pets. In addition to the excellent customer support, the Roxy Aquarium itself was a marvel to behold. The exhibits were well-maintained, showcasing a diverse range of vibrant and beautiful sea creatures. The tanks were clean, and the water quality was top-notch, creating a healthy environment for the aquatic life. Overall, my experience at Roxy Aquarium exceeded my expectations. The outstanding customer support provided by their knowledgeable and friendly staff truly made a difference. I highly recommend this aquarium to anyone looking for an enjoyable and educational visit. Whether you're a seasoned aquarium enthusiast or simply curious about tropical aquatic life, Roxy Aquarium is a must-visit destination.

Customer service was wonderful, and the fish tank glass was really nice. But the light was really expensive! $140 for the led light where I saw the same light in a different shop for $90. But the light works really well and is fine. Furthermore, the heaters recommended to us were atrocious. The first one they recommended to us came in a white box with no instructions nor branding name as far as I remember, it also had glass covering that exploded a few minutes after we turned it on. Luckily there were no fish in the tank yet so we were able to clean it with ease. We brought it back to the shop and was handed a new one, but not as a replacement but more as another recommendation we had to pay for. This time it had coverings of aluminium that did not explode, but it came with a plastic holder that melted when we turned it on. We were forced to build a holder out of metal but then had many inconveniences where it wouldn't turn on unless we turned the temperature really high then back down, even then it was enough to melt the other plastic covering. We don't know what to do and it is turning to winter, our temperature in the tank water keeps dropping and I'm very concerned for my tropical fish. Other than that the workers we're really nice and explained a lot of things that we weren't so sure about but all and all the only bad thing I can mention is the recommendations of the heaters! Have a great day.

The man was very helpful. I went in with nothing but a tank and came out with everything I needed to get started. I can't wait to come back in a few weeks to get some fish once my tank has stabilised! They have a very large range of products, both for Saltwater and freshwater. I would reccomend doing a bit of googling first so you know what you are asking for, and to tell them at the start what your end goal is, as I forgot to say I wanted plants so we had to swap a few chemicals. Overall a positive experience and I will be back soon! The cons: When I got home and installed the filter I was recommended, it seemed way too strong and was creating a strong current in my 47L tank. I called up Roxy as the box on the filter said adjustable, but I could work out how to adjust it. It turns out this model is not adjustable despite the box, and is far too big for 47L. This is annoying as I said I'm a complete beginner and was relying on the store man's expertise. They said they'll return it for me, but it is very inconvenient as I will have to start the tank conditioning weeks from the date of the new filter, and I'm keen to get my fish ASAP! I live an hour and ten minutes from them so it isn't easy to get there.

I had a great experience with this shop, buying my son his first big tank. We bought a very nicely made tank and cabinet for a much cheaper price than I had found elsewhere, and better yet they were both locally made by skilled craftspeople here in Melbourne. There was a wide range of imported and flat pack cabinets and loads of other tanks on offer too. They were even able to do same day delivery! Once we realised the prices were better than our normal aquarium shop, and the advice well informed and genuinely not trying to upsell us (!), we decided to do the full tank set up as well. There were a range of sizes available for Ehime, Pet works and Fluvial filters (almost tempted by the sump filter setups they have too!), and a good range of heaters and lights. Best of all, they had a beautiful range of drift wood and rocks (including okha rocks) all for sale at very good by the kilo rates - we were able to buy much more dramatic and large items than we could have afforded elsewhere. We will be back when we need plants and fish and other supplies as they had a great range.

I can't speak for the store itself, but I wouldn't order anything from them online again, despite their competitive prices. I placed an order over the weekend and contacted them 5 days later (Friday) to try and track down whether it has been sent. I was passed around to 3 people to be told they were unable to determine if it has been shipped. They were quite blunt on the phone, I felt treated as an inconvenience trying to track down a large order +$200+). The courier they use is cheap and notoriously useless. Took nearly 2 weeks for it to actually get to the departing airport. Sat in the back of a van. Pay a little extra and shop local for peace of mind.

We loved Roxy Aquarium! A guy who assisted us was very helpful and kind. He gave us useful information but let us decide for ourself what we were after ... we did not fill forced into any purchase what was great. Staff even helped us with caring things we got to the car. They were also able to answer all our questions. They are knowledgeable but not pretentious. Finally, fish display really looks stunning and even just watching fish was amusing. we got the shopping with experience ;) Overall we highly recommend this business.

  • beccahoo

The fish I purchased still lives along with the healthy plants I got from Roxy. The owner and workers are all so friendly and FRANK their massive 30 year old ++ fish at the front of the store is a MUST to meet!! Frank is very picky at who he gives kisses to so have some fun and give it a try!! There are also many other exotic fish to enjoy while doing your shop here. This aquarium store is worth the visit Thank you to the team for having such a great place!!

  • Rachel

This is by far the best place for fish tanks and stands, and really well looked after fish. They sell everything you need for your setup and staff are lovely. Update: I recently went here again after a couple of months and the range of fish has really expanded. The display tanks look great and they have a huge range of Discus which all look super healthy.

  • Kristy Keeble

Not sure what’s changed but bought 2 fish in which they died within a day. We have always purchased fish from this store but noticed recently the staff are inexperienced and have no idea. We checked our tank water and all levels were fine. Sorry but you need to stop hiring inexperienced it’s damaging to your business. Unfortunately we won’t be returning.

  • Nicole Lucas

I have been a regular delivery client for quite some time now, even gettingdeliveries to helpbset upbthe mans grandkids. Can't recommend Roxy Aquarium highly enough. Best live fish, plant, food and equipment supplier I have ever found. Quite literally have a "shut up and take my money" kind of relationship now.. love you guys.

  • Rose Ahmadi

How have I not seen this place before? Biggest range of tanks, plants, items in the shelf too. Fish range is very good too. Some rare fish that I’ve never seen. I was struggling to find a decent tank setup for good price. What I liked the most, very presentable setup, clean tanks and top dollar service

  • Shelby Harris

I love Roxy Aquarium!! Such an incredible range of live plants and fish. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The fish are all bright, vibrant and obviously extremely well taken care of. Prices are also fantastic. Definitely my one stop shop for all my aquarium needs from now on!

  • Les Man

I went in there today after ringing for a underground filtration set n was told they had em. When I got in there I was left standing like a dill pickle for over 20 mins. But what I did learn unless your there nationality you will be left standing. Not very welcoming.

  • Từ An

If you look from the outside, you wouldn’t think it is a shop. You will see a surprised world once you open the door. They have plenty of fish wish aquarium supplies for fish ponds. My kids are so excited to watching around the shop and talking to nice staff.

Good selection. Fishes looked healthy. Parking available. Shop is Open! Make sure to locate door on right side of shutters. Got some plants from here (see pic). Good quantity, all grown plants but not the healthiest

  • Phu Lai

Decent variety of fishes, which all look healthy. Livestock tanks well looked after and look very clean and immaculate. Plants rather limited. Pricing isn't very competitive tho. I think they do custom tanks too.
