I called Island Fish & Reef to come remove an aquarium that had been left behind in my home. They were able to provide their service in a quick and professional manner. They sent two technicians who were very polite and careful while they were in my home and they worked quickly and cleanly. Though I no longer have a fish tank I can confidently recommend them for their excellent work. The quality of their service is top notch 5 stars for sure!

Island Fish and Reef is truly excellent. I was very lucky to find them a few years ago to move a 120g reef tank to our office. They did a great job and have been coming weekly for maintenance ever since. Downs and his team are very knowledgeable, professional, and always go the extra mile. They have sourced fish, corals, and equipment that made perfect additions to our system. They do a great job coming up with creative custom solutions to any problem we come across. Thank you!
