About Us


We specialize in carrying the highest quality products at the lowest prices.

Thank you for stopping by our web site. Aquatic Warehouse was first opened in 1993 in San Diego as an institutional "wholesale – only" fish and coral location catering to stores and shipping nationally. We were also known for our high end filtration and Protein Skimmer lines. Being hobbyists at heart, we really missed the one on one relationship with hobbyists like yourself, and so we decided to change directions and open our doors to the public.

A lot has changed since the early days, not only have we (thanks to you) grown four times our original size, with over 3500 different aquarium and pond related products, 1000's of fish, corals and plants, but we have acquired an excellent base in our knowledgeable enthusiastic staff dedicated to this great hobby! We are always striving to learn new ideas and techniques to help make all aspects of aquarium keeping easier, more successful and of course more fun.

We cater to all aspects of the aquarium industry specializing in advanced custom reef and fish systems. But just because we know the genus and species of corals and gorgonians, doesn't mean we don't love guppies and platys! We are very proud of our planted freshwater stand alone tanks too! We invite you to take a few minutes and have a look at our articles and browse the many great photos in our archives on Facebook. We would also love you to stop by our 8000 square foot store in Kearny Mesa right off freeways 163 and 52; we are open 7 days a week:

Monday through Friday from 10:00 to 7:00, Saturday 10:00 to 6:00 and Sunday 11:00 to 6:00.
