  • The Ocean Floor is one of the largest aquarium and fish stores in the southwest with more then 17,000 square feet of freshwater and saltwater related products and livestock. They feature a huge selection of in-stock aquariums on display and ready for purchase as well as an extensive selection of equipment and supplies.

    For the freshwater side of the hobby, The Ocean floor has a wide variety of freshwater fish. They also offer bulk substrate and large chucks of driftwood and lace rocks.

    On the saltwater side, they offer a good selection of lighting and equipment as well as fish and coral frags.

      Ocean Floor is a HUGE store, opened inside an old skating rink. Probably the largest selection of new tanks in the state. They also offer in-house payment options for tank purchases. Huge selection of gravel and rock.

      Great selection of freshwater fish and supplies.

      On the saltwater side, much smaller section, and it may be my luck, but I have never had long term success with anything salt water livestock I have bought.

      Equipment selection is large, but tends to be a little pricey compared to the rest of the Phoenix market.

      When they have annual tank sales you can’t beat their prices! I have a 180g tank I love from their. Livestock is questionable and displays never look real great. They have tried to put more effort into their displays and got into Frags but to no avail. They do have good sales on bulk fish they bring in occasionally if you want to roll the dice on fish life.

      In the past Ocean Floor was hit or miss, but in the past year they have really been upping their game!

      It is the new home of the $10 frag club and JAB Corals!

      I love coming it to see all the tanks with both healthy fish and corals. Even my wife and kids like going to Ocean Floor, so its a win/win!!!

      What a dump. Fish are diseased. Joined the frag club. The guy running it is rude. Pieces are bland and full of algae and pests.

      This place sucks, hands down. I’ve had aquariums and a pond for 28 years and this is the WORST store phoenix has to offer. Look up other places in the valley and you’ll be happier.

      Have been going there for about 1.5 years and the selection/quality has been great until about 4 months ago. Whenever I go there lately I cant find a single freshwater tank without seeing a couple dead fish stuck in the filters, fish being eaten by the other fish in the tank, skeletons in some of the tanks. If there are no dead fish then there’s always fish who have sunken belly/bloat. All of the fish would be in better shape if the employees simply took out dead fish and changed the water every now and then. However they always seem too busy talking to each other at the desk.
      I purchase at least $300 in fish (I have multiple Cichlid and Tetra tanks) per month but unfortunately I can not continue going back there after having to constantly treat fish I have picked up from there over the past few months.
      The store has a lot of potential but apparently don’t hire employees who actually care about fish.

      Ocean Floor has been my store to go too since the 2000’s, but nowadays i find their prices ridiculous and unjustified because literally i was looking at their Discus’ to find a 150$ dollar discus of only 3.5 inches, also their fish livestock warranty is unfriendly as they only allow under 10 dollar fishes, even if it’s over a penny of 10 bucks, i bet they wouldn’t allow it. Also, their service lacks of respect and their employees slack around until they’re being asked for help. So i found a Arizona store that specializes Discus mostly and saw their prices of 4-5 inch Discus at only 50 dollars and they’re much bigger than the one’s at Ocean floor. Ocean Floor may have pride as being the on of biggest aquarium store in Arizona, but i won’t bother spending anything there anymore. My reason for giving two stars is because one of my tanks (75 Gallon) was bought from Ocean floor that lasted for 17 years and still runs good.

      I spent over $200 on two visits, on salt and fresh fish, and plants.
      Almost all the salt water critters died immediately. Within a day. I tested my water and it’s fine. I have one fish and one crab left.
      The plants gave my fresh tanks snails! All of those fish but one died.
      The betas are priced well, so I got 2 for my classroom. Both died in a few days.
      The teenage boys that work there will tell you everything on the shelves is amazing, and great,(pushy), but can’t tell you w h y. May as well try somewhere else first.
