Amy McAllister

Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. I like that they usually have a good variety of stock and their fish and plants are healthy!

Rebecca Bledsoe

Love this place! Staff is friendly and educated and the selection is amazing

Matt Blystone

This place has a really nice selection of aquatic life, and it all is clean and very well taken care of. I watched them feed a blue-spotted sting Ray and a cow fish, super cool. I'd feel safe buying here for my reef.

Chad VanLanker

Just found this store after returning to the hobby. Excellent prices and very good selection. Shelby is very knowledge, friendly and helpful on each visit. Highly recommended!

Life Happens

matthew debacker

Very helpful staff. Good prices and just a good expirence

Jaclyn Taylor

I highly recommend this fresh and saltwater store to anyone who is in the market to buy. It's also a great store to bring the family by and check out. Ron and Shelby are very knowledgeable and helpful. They definitely take care of their costumers and inform buyers of what would work best for their tank at home. It's a great place for beginners and their prices are reasonable. I make a hour and a half drive just about every weekend to check out new fish and make a purchase. I couldn't thank the employees at Live Art Aquatics enough for all the advice and help they have given us with our first saltwater tank. I will continue to be a loyal customer.

Sean Fite

Family owned, and very knowledgeable about all things aquatic. Not a good selection of tanks, but they will order for you. Large selection of corals, along with a good selection of fresh and salt water fish.

Karen Doolin

I went in for feeder guppies and was really impressed with the employees and warm atmosphere. Kind of felt like like regular people... comfortable and relaxed... with an impressive selection of fish. I just really went away in a better mood than when I pulled up, and I was already in a good mood.

Terri Hahn

Terrific place to spend an hour just looking around, the employees are genuinely friendly and knowledgeable, reasonable prices. We just loved it!

Mansell Trucking LLC

Great place for saltwater aquarium coral and fish.

Robert Larsen

My wife, Susan and I found this store when they were in Englewood. Shelby was great assistance with my wife with her first round of angel fish to get us startec....since then, both Shelby and Ron were VERY helpful when we had sick fish and assisted us with getting our tank healthy again....bow, we have 2 tanks and will keep coming back for our fish. Never once, during my learning curve about this hobby, have they not been helpful. Shelby will even order fish in if you request it..Great customer service and thanks so much for the help along the way.

Jonathan Pearson

Great place... usually really busy so it takes a bit to get help


Great selection of fish. I bought a few live fish from them and am very happy with my purchase. My loach will be a year soon and he’s the best fish I’ve ever had!

Eric McDade

A simple no gimmicks local fish store with a decent variety of fresh and saltwater livestock run by aquarium hobbyists. Worth a visit, make sure to check the hours first.

kaitlyn rieke

I’ve been coming here for a little over two years now and every time everyone is always super friendly and helpful. Prices are great and the fish are healthy. I recently had to temporarily take my tanks down and they helped with “fish sitting” until my tanks were back up. I basically do almost all my fish “shopping” here and highly recommend this place to everyone.

Kyle Johnson

Amazing staff and amazing prices! I love this place!

Carissa Kimmell

Amazing variety

Janell Spears

We just purchased our first home that came with a 200g tank!! Shelby and her family have been beyond amazing helping us newbies with it all! We now have over 20 fish and are in love!!! Now it's our only fish store for any needs. Highly recommended. She checked our levels and even came to our house to look at our tank set up for free! They always care for their fish and it shows. I need more tanks so I can have all da fishhesss!!!

Craig Welsh

Great service. Good people

darryl cox

Great prices and selection. Attentive personnel which is more than I can say for the closer stores in the area. It's a little cluttered, stuff stacked in corners, but didn't effect my shopping experience

I've had nothing but excellent service, all their fresh and salt water fish are very health. My experience there has always been great... You ought to give them a visit.

Shelby is darling and so very helpful. Prices can't be beat. I love that she knows me when I come in, or maybe it's because I visit her store so often! Love Live Art Aquatics!

Adora Mullendore

Owners go out of their way to beat box store prices. Very knowledgeable. They have a huge selection of salt water and fresh water fish. If there is a fish you want, and they don't have it, they will go out of there way to find it.

Mark Kilpatrick

The best aquatics store I have been too

Austin Grimes

Definitely the best lfs around. I have all different kinds of tanks and they always have exactly what i want as well as a bunch of other things i didn't know i wanted. They have all kinds of great aquatic life you won't find at any of your chain pet stores. Cheaper too. I would, and do, recommend Live Art to every fellow aquarist i meet.

Riley Palguta

One of the best fish stores in KC by far. You can tell the owners are really passionate about the hobby, take pride in their store and want to help as much as possible. Every time I'm in there is a great experience. Fish looked healthy and the prices are fair.


Great store, great people. Limited freshwater stock though.

Shane Helm

Great staff great selection my favorite fish store.


Great place. And people

Anthony Domann

Ron and Shelby are just "good people ". It's a father/daughter team that goes above and beyond. Their knowledge of aquatics was able to take my wife and I through the learning process and set up of our first saltwater system. Three years later, we are still learning, but all credit goes to Live Art with Ron and Shelby guiding us, through good and unfortunate mishaps,(they will happen), from mistakes that we made. They won't oversell you either, instead, they guide you to safe selections for your set up and environment and will even encourage you to slow down if they feel your going too fast with over enthusiastic purchasing on new set ups. The wife and younger daughter even jumps in when things get busy! Wonderful people! Awesome place to shop and learn!

Jacquelyn Gibbs

Everyone in the store is friendly and helpful! We started visiting the store several years ago as customers and now we visit as friends. Live Art Aquatics is like an extended family now! Not to mention it's a great place to meet other hobbyists and make new friends!

Cody Johnson

Best place around to get ur fresh or salt water fish and supplies staff if very knowledgeable and friendly

Small moves

The owners care! How many businesses can you say that about? I can only say that about a hand full of businesses. The fish are wonderful and the prices can't be beat. Myself I have mostly brackish water aquariums and love to just go into Live Art and just talk aquariums and shoot ideas around with them. They are one of my favorite fish stores in the area and will always buy aquarium livestock and supplies from them. Awesome Store and Awesome People!

Bernice Miller

They are very knowledge-based about aquatics. ... very friendly atmosphere. ..I love going there. . Helped me get my 55 gallon started

Brian Hirner

Love this place. They all really know their stuff!

Michael Lewis

Best aquaium and marine store in the world


My favorite fish store EVER. Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful staff, great prices, awesome events and sales, easy to find location. Clean store, healthy fish, everything you could want in an LFS!

Joe Lynch

Twice I visited the store to speak about aquarium maintenance. I left my phone number each time. Twice I was told that they would call to set up an appointment. Both times they did not call. Once is a mistake. Twice is a bad business practice. If a company doesn't want my business or do the job, they should have the courtesy to inform me. It's probably good that I did find another service that is run in a professional manner.

Paula Mattison

Great place to go for all your aquatic needs. Shelby is a very wonderful person.

Madderdaddy T

Great staff!! Awesome place!!!

Kristene Forest

Great prices and cool fish veriety

Arron Pelc

Fantastic store. The owners are incredibly nice, extremely helpful and they know their stuff. You can trust them not to sell you a bunch of crap you don't need just to make a buck. I would recommend Live Art Aquatics to anyone.

Ashley richardson

This place was awesome! Not many places in KC sell black worms its awesome that they have them. Really nice selection of aquatics and really good prices

Jacob Shelton

The best fish store in the area. The owner is great and if she doesn't have it chances are she can get it. Never had a bad experience here.

Carlos De Leon

Great place

Stephen Andersen

My personal favorite LFS. Been to all of them around the metro. These people are way more friendly than some other shops. Actually stock their fish, stand behind their products, work with customers to make sure you are doing the right thing for the fish and your tank. They pretty much held my hand on my salt water stsrt up. By far one of the best places to get your stock. If you don't see what you want or have a personal request they can order it in. Great plants great freshwater, great marine life and the corals are beautiful. -Steve a satisfied customer.

Robert Scott

Excellent place very friendly just crazy hours

Micheal Vollrath

Lori Mills

You can't imagine the variety and health of the saltwater and freshwater fish, corals, live rock and invertebrates and crustaceans!!! You have to see this amazing place. The knowledge and care of every living creature in this business is worth a visit. This will become your new favorite place for all your marine life and their necessities ❤

One of the best aquatic pet stores in the KC area. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable if they dont have it they will get it. They make a point to learn and remember your name making it a very rememberable experience. Find the live auctions they do on FB for both fresh and salt water!

Troy Gasperino

awesome just awesome

Sabrina Barber

Basically the best place on Earth. They have everything you could ever want, or can get it for you. The people are absolutely wonderful and everything I've ever gotten from there has been great! And what's really amazing is that if something dies within 48 hours I believe it is, you can take in your water and they'll replace it for you.

Tree House City

Salt water inhabitants, but besides possible feeders the selection is minut.

Beau Knauff

Always a pleasure going to live art. Very knowledgeable staff and very kid friendly highly recommend this place to anybody

Matt Ungashick

High quality fish, very knowledgeable, the friendliest family-oriented staff. Do not go elsewhere.

I love this place for my fish! Extremely resourceful. Exotic fish can be found here. They see me at least 2 times a month. Pricing is great too!


The key to this store is getting here at the right time. Thursday afternoon is a pretty good time to come in. Great local fish store

Jake L

This is a great shop. Shelby has been very helpful, and easy to work with. The shop is also very family friendly, and she takes the time to talk with my kids each time we come in. The prices are also great!
