We are located just minutes from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in Gardena, California. LAX is often referred to as the “Gateway to the Pacific Rim” as it is the busiest airport on the west coast and close to Asia and Indo-Pacific. These regions are also the world’s most productive areas for both marine and fresh water tropical fish, thus making Los Angeles thee hub for the Tropical Fish business in the United States.


Our modern distribution facility has a fully computerized PLC based system that detects measures and controls every possible variable of our water quality. It allows for the immediate notification if any water parameter is beyond the optimal boundaries and the remote correction of the issue. In other word, if our water is not right, someone is notified and it is immediately taken care of, day or night. This state of the art PLC system plus our multiple RK2 filtration system and UV sterilizers guarantee consistent water quality.


With over 20,000 square feet of warehouse space, most of it devoted to water storage and holding facilities, we can accommodate customers of any size. Our thousands of gallons of storage capacity, 3 full RK2 filtration systems and multiple tanks allow us to hold and process a large amount of either freshwater or saltwater aquaria. Combine this with the automated PLC system we can change our entire facility to almost entirely fresh or entirely marine with just pressing of a few buttons.
