    I have been going to Dave and Mike for over 20 years now and they are the best around. Nobody better for fish, both fresh and salt water.

  2. Matt says:

    Awesome store-great guys-great service-keep it up!!!

  3. Gail says:

    This is the place to go if you’re serious about your fish, for both the beginner and the experienced hobbyists. David and staff are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. They want to help you do it right, not just make a sale. Go here instead of any box store if you want to be successful with your fish-keeping!

    What a wonderful neighborhood store. Knowledgable and friendly staff, personal service, and great products. Happy it is in my neighborhood, but I would be willing to drive just to talk with the owner.

    The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. My grandson loves buying fish for his fish tank at The Aquarium Shop and Mr. David is always willing to oblige his many inquiries. It is a wonderful experience even if you do not own an aquarium.

    Love, love, love this shop! Entire staff is friendly and really knows their stuff. By far the best service for the novice fish lover. They don’t just sell product, but teach as well. Everytime I go in, I learn something new and never feel as though they are bothered by my million questions. Two thumbs up!

    An owner-operated friendly aquarium store with both fresh and salt-water fish and supplies. Unlike “big-box stores” the employees can assist with their product lines’ intricacies of set-up and operation. Well-rounded inventories.

    We don’t have our fish tanks set up at the moment because we just moved but once we do, we will definitely be going back to the Aquarium Shop to get everything we need. The owner is amazing. Extremely knowledgable and friendly and was able to answer all the questions we had since we were brand new to salt water fish. I highly recommend making this your first (and last) stop.

    I am so tired of shopping at “cookie cutter Big Box chains. This store is a breath of fresh air staffed with attentive and knowledgable staff.

    Wonderful place! Excellent stock, incredibly friendly, knowledgeable staff, clean store, healthy fish….I could say more, but need I? :-)

    It’s a miracle that places like this still exist. Walking into the place is almost like walking into a time warp. David, the owner is usually there, smiling, greeting just about everyone, and he personally takes care of each and every customer. Who does this in 2012? He has just about everything you need in regard to fish, and better yet, he knows EXACTLY how everything is supposed to work. Try that in one of those monster chains that threaten places like this. If you’re in Royal Oak, you owe it to yourself to stop by, this is a gem. We must protect and frequent our gems before they go the way of Wal Mart. Long Live The Aquarium Shop!

    The owners and staff are exceptionally knowledgable and helpful. Pleasant to just look or to make significant purchases. Hard to find this kind of service anymore.

    Astonishing breadth and depth of knowledge; friendly, professional help. These folks are patient, too! Willing to listen and guide the novice, but still helpful to those with huge saltwater tanks in their basements :) Also very knowledgeable about outdoor ponds. For a physically smallish shop, I was surprised to discover how vast their resources are. No, I don’t own the place :) but have been a customer for many years, and they’ve never let me down, no matter how fundamental or how complex my questions.
