All the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I was helped by a young lady named Taylor. She was very patient with all my questions and showed me the tanks I was interested in.

I bought my wife a Fish Tank over the summer to become her little hobby, and Mark's has been amazing at teaching her how to best care for it. They've shown her tips and techniques, even without her having to buy some item; When she bought a small tank for her classroom and needed a filter, they literally opened a box, assembled one and showed her how to use it before she committed to buying it! They're great people, friendly atmosphere, and knowledgeable in how to help you get your aquarium up and running!

Love this place and the people who work here. I use to bump around several different places in the valley and LA just to find fish or good deal on supplies and now i just stick with Mark's tropical fish.????

Update. Happy to be setting up a new freshwater tank. Just picked up 3 kinds of angelfish and some cardinal tetras. Everyone is super knowledgeable and helpful. So glad the new location is working out!

If you are looking for a LFS that is welcoming, knowledgable, and realistic Mark's is the place for you! The quality I have noticed the most in this store is their honesty. If there is a question they cannot answer they don't make something up, they point you to the team member that can better help with the question. They will talk about everything fish related and it seems as if they're just having a good time rather than clocking in and working. A huge shout out to Taylor, she has been extremely helpful for me starting up my first tank. Due to her extensive knowledge my roommate also felt comfortable enough to start up a Betta tank as well. I could likely go on for a while writing about this place because they're honestly just that amazing. Go stop in and Mark, Taylor, the two other guys (I didn't catch their names) and of course Rico (the parrot) will make you feel like family. Most importantly, my fish are happy and healthy thanks to the care they received before I brought them home (two Apistogramma Agassizii, photo of them in my tank included).

MTF is an institution in Los Angeles! Mark knows everything and the place is very service oriented. They even accommodated curbside pickup. Thank you!

Came in just to check the place out. Didn't know what to expect. Pretty much, best experience I've ever had at a pet store. I think Josh was his name, helped me out. Gave me a lot of tips on my planted aquarium and I came out with 6 fish and a whole lot of new knowledge on how to prep my planted tank for more delicate fish. He told me what to test in my tank and how to test it. I honestly didn't even know half this stuff. I'll be recommending this place to anyone and everyone who even mentions fish. Best believe I'll be back. I saw a lot of creatures I'd like in my tank. Very happy today and excited to introduce my new fish to their new home. Thanks guys!

Mark's Tropical Fish had become one of the best fish stores I go to to for my fish and aquarium needs. Their staff is very knowledgeable from fish behavior to water quality. On my last visit Roy answered all of my questions on a green bubble tip anemone. The anemone is happy and thriving in my tank, while other fish stores said it they were impossible to keep in a small tank. Thanks Roy for your knowledge.

Excellent service, reliable and very good quality fish. Knowledgeable and supportive to any level of fish tank maintenance. Have been returning to Mark's Tropical since my kids were little, before he moved to this new place.

Went to get my 4 year old daughter her first fish. They helped me pick out easy fish for us and gave us tons of information on how to care for them. We are very happy with our purchase and will be coming back for more. Thank you!
