    My mother had been wanting to go to this place for a very long time. She worked in a pet store fish department and had heard about how amazing it was, so we took the 4 1/2 hr drive. It was a little bit hard to find. It looked from the outside … More like a hole in the wall. Inside it's very warm and rather humid. But when I started looking around, I was actually impressed. There were so many tanks with so many different kinds of fish and plants, and the display tanks were nothing short of award worthy. The prices seemed a bit high, but honestly I can see why. With that many tanks- I didn't count but I would estimate close to 150? Maybe more... Not one tank was dirty and none of the fish looked stressed or unhealthy at all. The water test station was tidy and organized, and I have to point out the tanks are not on a single water system, (a no-no that a lot of places do) meaning each tank had its own chemistry going on. And the staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We will be making that trip again!

    I’ve been coming to this store for four years after adopting a couple of fish from a friend. I now have a 29-gal community tank and it’s all thanks to the staff here. The selection of fish and live plants is amazing, but I go back for the … More staff. They are all so knowledgeable and accommodating, and I never feel rushed. They’ve advised me countless times with sick fish issues, and street parking is almost always available. Excellent store!

    This was my first time ordering fish online so I was really nervous but TWS did an INCREDIBLE job! They were packaged extremely well and arrived on time!
    They were active as soon as I opened the box and became even more active after acclimating
    … More and being added!
    The customer service is great and they keep you informed, updating you asap.
    I will definitely only be using this business for my online live fish orders!
    Thank you so much!!

    First time ordering fish online - this store is EXCELLENT! All of my fish arrived quickly, happy and healthy. They were drip acclimated for half an hour, and after just 45 minutes in my tanks they are very active, already exploring, and … More their diluted colors from the stress of shipping are quickly fading! Excellent seller, excellent prices, excellent fish!

    I had them ship me multiple types of fish, shrimp, snails, and plants all the way from the west coast to the northeast during the winter. I was very concerned about that much handling but they arrived VERY well packaged.. in addition, … More every single item arrived alive and well.
    I must also say, the plants were the healthiest and best looking plants I have ever seen. I also had several discussions with the staff over the phone and all were very friendly and helpful.
    If you are worried about ordering fish online, these guys will get you excited about your next purchase before you even need to! 10/10 will order again.
    Made ANOTHER purchase. Everything was FANTASTIC. I had a few dead shrimp that they reimbursed me for after following their instructions exactly as written! NO issues. I ordered about a dozen fish, dozen shrimp, dozen plants (including logs), and a trio of snails. They have all been thriving.
