LFS: Tropical Fish World - SF Bay Area


Kinda mid size fish store that carries different type of fresh and saltwater fish. Store looks kinda ragged and dark... The owner (Dave) is great though and he will deal with you if you go often and buy stuff. Some of the stuff is a bit cheaper than Albany Aquarium. He carries Amano Shrimps and some other assorted shrimps. Apparently he breeds his own fish too.. Last time I went he had two large tanks of Red Devils.. Kinda cute fish. As for plants there isn't that much to talk about... Just the garden variety.

Pros: good assortment of fish, owner is knowledgeable, has shrimps, will deal with you.

Cons: Could use better lighting in the store and in the fish tanks.

I've been here. This was before I started doing the planted tank thing. Great assortment of fish, but not really a plant store. But it's a great place all the same. Worth the 5 minute drive down San Pablo from Albany aquarium.
