This place is filled with dirty, overcrowded tanks of fish. Lots of dead and near-dead ones. There's not really a good selection - mostly just tetras, danios, dwarf aquatic frogs, and a couple of expensive/high-profile species like discus and arowanas. The staff were also rather rude to me, choosing to read magazines instead of look at me and answer my questions properly. It seemed like they just wanted me out of their shop. I bought some superworms but will not be going back there again. About the only good thing there is the deals on used large tanks. But that's why we have Craigslist, right?

I have an established fresh water aquarium and my fish do well in the tank. I had the water checked recently and it was fine. I purchased neon tetras and cardinals from this store. These fish started to die one after the other and I went to the store and mentioned to the owner about this and he showed me on the receipt that there are no refunds or warranties. He didn't let me explain. I purchased fish at another store before but never had this kind of problem with them. I think there is something wrong with this batch of fish at the Fraser aquarium store. I hope my other fish won't get infected. All in all it a disappointing experience. I should have guessed looking at the store - it wasn't maintained clean. I won't shop at this store again.

Beloved pleco had a jump-out-of-tank accident recently, and I was in need of a number of supplies. After looking both at local fish store and Big Al's, and not finding what I need, went to Fraser Aquarium on a hunch. Their staff is friendly, prices much better than other stores, selection is awesome, stocking multiple brands for each type of item instead of only nutrafin products. I was able to purchase air tube by the foot, as well as an API master test kit for $25. Very happy with the store, will definitely stop buying fish products elsewhere.

Don't bother wasting time at this fish store as the fish and tanks are all ill and unhygienic looking. The person working there was very rude and unhelpful almost seems like he wants to you get out. Very uneasy vibe in there. There are plenty other stores around that will offer help with healthy and clean environment!

I lived so close to Fraser Aquarium, I started buying all my supplies there. When I go in i would always notice several tanks that looked unhealthy with dead fish at the bottom. After a couple of bad experiences with fish purchased there, i stopped buying live fish from them. Since they were so conveniently located I would still go and buy my supplies from them (enzymes, fish food, testing strips etc) until i purchased an item which had expired over 1 year ago. I returned it (they could not exchange because all of their stock was out of date) and stopped even buying these supplies. Recently I decided my tank needed a makeover and thought "well its just down the street, how can anything go wrong with ornaments or gravel?". So again, I found myself at Fraser aquarium! I walked through the store, picking up things and taking a look, checking how many hiding spots were in one fake log or another, and putting it back down on the shelf. The store clerk came up to me: Excuse me do you need help?/ Thanks but not right now, i'm just looking/ Well if you want help ask because i dont want you touching my stuff/ I'm sorry but i need to have a closer look/ well i dont need customers like you/ ok i can shop somewhere else!/ (yelling) GO! GO AWAY! GET OUT OF MY STORE STUPID B*TCH I DONT NEED CUSTOMERS LIKE YOU STUPID B*TCH! I was speechless. I really dont know what happened, apparently someone was having a really bad day. Needless to say I will never be back, and I cant say its much of a loss.

Unhealthy overpriced fish in dirty tanks pretty much sums it up. Turtles in tanks barley big enough to turn around in. Just a sad place overall. I only recommend this store if you don’t have any other options.
