NOTES FROM OUR FISH FAMILIES

Ryan and crew are smashing the QT and salt/freshwater maintenance game out of the park. One of the few go-tos nowadays for my needs.

Tim Prilucik

Dealing with Ryan is the best experience you could ask for. If you’re look for someone honest, knowledgeable, and who truly cares about the hobby then reach out to island fish and scale. One of the best things I have done

Gary Matt

A big shout out to Island Fish & Scale. I hired Ryan and his crew to move my 75 gallon, and (2) small tanks. Absolutely flawless! Complete professional and caring individual who listened to my needs. If you need your aquarium moved, this is your team! 10 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ed Youskites

Been in the hobby a long time and Ryan is the most knowledgeable individual I’ve ever met. The quality of his livestock is the best I’ve come across. Healthy as can be. This has become one of my go to shops.
