Good Goldfish Stores In La Area?

Recommended Posts

I'll be in LA in a couple weeks and was wondering if anyone knew of any good goldfish stores? Most of the ones I've been to around there are mostly saltwater or tropical stores. I know that's where all the shipments to California arrive so I know there have to be at least a couple good goldie stores!

I know a few...though most of them aren't in LA proper.

The one that always has really nice goldfish is PTF Tropical Fish in Pasadena:

2982 East Colorado Boulevard

Pasadena, CA 91107-4416

(626) 449-4987

I just stopped at this one today and they had some lovely ranchus and a lot of really cool planted tanks:

Nature Aquarium

2836 Santa Monica Blvd

Santa Monica, CA 90404

(310) 829-6180

While you are in that neighborhood check out this one. It is kind of dirty, but has really nice healthy goldfish (that is where my ryukin came from) and an indoor koi pond:

Apex Aquarium

4338 Sepulveda Blvd

Culver City, CA 90230

(310) 391-0305

While you are in that neighborhood check out the much cleaner:

The Aquarium

5403 Sepulveda Blvd

Culver City, CA 90230-5511

(310) 390-1240

And then if you in hollywood one of my favorites is:

Oranda Aqaurium

7318 Santa Monica Blvd

West Hollywood, CA 90046

(323) 876-5059

Have fun and let me know how it goes!

But kind of embarressing, too. I swear I could write a small book on the fish stores in Southern California.

Awesome, Amy! I was actually going to just message you personally. LOL That is an amazing list and I'll print it out and mapquest it.

I was trying to do searches on Google yesterday but I wasn't sure by the reviews I was reading. I mean, people were mad that their goldfish got ich and died. I did see Oranda Aquarium on there and wanted to visit just because I liked the name!

Anyway, thank you again. I can't wait to check those out. :)

No problem. I know more if you want more or if you want to ask about one I've probably been there. I take the reviews with a grain of salt. Apex has horrible reviews, but Tinman has been the healthiest fish I've ever had and I just got my new aquarium set up from them. So I think it comes down to personal preference sometimes. Oranda is nice...they usually have at least one tank of big goldies. Have fun!
