Meet the Owner:
Hi there, my name is Blake Lewis, and I'm the owner and operator of Tide Pool Aquatics. Like many of you, I am just a dedicated hobbyist and fish nerd who has a diehard appreciation and interest for marine aquariums!
I have over a decade experience in keeping saltwater fish and have held onto the dream of owning my own aquarium store since the obsession first set in. Over the years, I have become especially intrigued by the unique and rare specimens that cannot be found in a regular aquarium shop.
Since then, the opportunity has presented itself that I may open my own aquarium store, and I will offer my customers those same unique and rare specimens that I have come to admire so much.
Tide Pool Aquatics is a small business that specializes in offering aquarium conditioned WYSIWYG saltwater fish.
Our goal is simple, we want to supply fellow hobbyists with healthy specimens at an affordable price.
Tide Pool Aquatics may be a small operation, but this is used to our advantage. We provide the same quality and reliability as the larger online aquarium retailers while keeping costs low.
Health of Our Fish:
The health of a fish is dependent upon its source. Because Tide Pool Aquatics operates out of Los Angeles, we have direct access to many of the best wholesalers in the country. Each fish is individually chosen from reliable and trusted sources and then quarantined for a minimum of 2 weeks before being listed for sale.
Tide Pool Aquatics is dedicated to keeping prices low! First, our husbandry protocols ensure the health of each fish to minimize any potential losses. Second, being a small operation means we have the advantage of low operating costs. These savings are passed onto the customer!
