Welcome to Aquariums West


Just Imagine…
…a beautiful underwater landscape inspired by nature and designed by you, framed inside a crystal clear glass box where the fish appear to be birds in the sky. Aquariums West has all the tools, live aquatic plants, tropical fish, layout materials, beautiful aquariums, and much, much more to help you with creating your underwater “Aquatic Art”. Fresh shipments of aquatic plants arrive weekly all the way from the Tropica nurseries in Denmark which are now available for purchasing online anywhere in Canada. If you are looking for inspiration, visit our Vancouver store and see all the gorgeous freshwater and saltwater displays. Our display tanks are forever changing to help inspire the aquarium artist in everyone of us and we have aquariums ranging from a simple beginner aquarium to an advanced hobbyist.
Aquariums West also has a large selection of saltwater fish and corals, reptiles and small animals too!


Galaxy Rasboras Extra Large WOW!

This gorgeous little fish, originally from Myanmar, has become one of the most sought after species for the planted aquarium crowd.  Their colouration resembles miniature versions of  freshwater Lake Trout. If you skimp on the plants in your aquarium the fish will become jittery and  will display their discomfort by spending much of their time hiding. Put them in a well planted aquarium in a group of 5 or more and they become front and center.  Come and see ours on display in the 5 Gallon Fluval Spec Aquarium at the front of the store.  The new shipment that we received this week are extra large!

Here is what one of Costin’s customer says:

“I look forward to Costin’s every visit. His life-long passion for fish has him possessed of a vast amount of knowledge, but it is his natural, genuine and warm personality that makes his visits so enjoyable. He is impeccably courteous, he leaves everything spotless and he teaches and encourages me in my hobby. I hired an expert but wound up with a relationship that feels more like a friendship because of my respect for him and trust in him. I would leave him the key to my apartment in a heartbeat were I to go away. I am proud and happy to recommend him”.   Chris
