    Default Jan's Tropical fish review

    It's a store located in Montclair, Ca. It is a family owned store and they are outstanding! Price on equipment is a little on the pricey side but they have to make money somehow so I still purchase it from them. They have a wide variety of livestock (both freshwater and saltwater) for great prices!! I would check them out if you're ever in the area!

    I like them very much.

    When I call most places in my area and I ask for something unique, all I tend to hear is, "oh, you don't want that. That product isn't a good idea to have."

    When I call Jan's and ask for something unique they typically say, "we don't have that, but if you can wait until Wednesday, I'll take your phone number and call you if we get it."

    Twice I have done that, for unique fw shrimp and for a nudibranch. Both times they called me on Wednesday.

    They will also, ussually, honor a SCAPE discount, even for their SW goods.

    Love this place for sure. Great selection on food,additives, and so on. Live stock is pretty well stocked to. I love supporting local stores here and there.

    i just went there today and that store is awesome!! i love the selection of saltwater fish they have and they won't try and sell you a fish if they don't think it will thrive in your tank.

    I know for a fact they use copper for the tanks with fish. They get new arrivals on Wed, so if you bought them soon after the fish is more likely stressed

    Copper doesn't take care of brookynella or internal parasites or flukes.

    They don't use copper that I know for a fact ... What ever they got from wholesale goes in the tank after acclimation... No treatment or quarantine.

    Been going here for years and never had issues. Good competitive pricing.
