I spoke with a bloke named "Will" on the phone, and whilst I wasn't buying anything at that time, he still spent 10 to 15 minutes on the phone with me giving me very valuable advice regarding a specialized product. It was so helpful and saved me so much time & dollars, that when travelling back from Melbourne to South Gippsland, I took the chance to pop into the store and have a look. There are loads of great, stand out things about this business including range and prices, but what took me by surprise was again their incredible service! I found the same bloke, (Will) who again saved me a bunch of money by steering me to a more appropriate piece of equipment, rather than what I was going to buy, and really helped out with knowledge and advice. I bought a bunch of stuff at great prices! Then he steered me to their supply shop a few doors down the road. - Wow!!!!! A great range of products & a lovely lady who could not have been more helpfull. I spent more money!! The extent that these guys help and assist you, without being intrusive, is uncommon these days, and they deserve to be rewarded for it. I have since purchased equipment and scaping materials over the telephone via John, and had another easy, positive, very helpful experience, all because of their fabulous customer service. Absolutely outstanding!

The store has a fantastic team of knowledgeable and helpful staff members who went above and beyond to ensure a remarkable experience. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted warmly and made to feel like a valued customer. The staff's expertise was evident as they provided expert advice and guidance on choosing the right products for my shrimp tank . They patiently answered all my questions, taking the time to explain different options and offering valuable insights into the care and maintenance of aquatic life. Their passion for their work was truly inspiring. Their friendly and approachable demeanor created a welcoming atmosphere. They took a genuine interest in understanding my needs and made personalized recommendations, ensuring that I left the store with everything necessary for a successful aquarium setup. Thanks for the incredible experience. I look forward to returning soon and continuing to rely on your expertise for all my aquarium needs!

The variety of fish here is amazing. Surely the largest selection in town. Each time I visit there is a fish I have either never seen or haven't seen in years. For long time fish keepers that have never been this is a store worth traveling for. For beginners, a great place to buy first fish as it is rare to see sick fish, a problem that is rife in the majority of Melbourne shops. For certain niches in the hobby there may be more suitable shops but as far as general selection and fish health there is nothing that compares locally...not even close and this has been the case for years now. I don't think it would be a stretch to say that if you drove to every aquarium in Melbourne today, New Life Aquarium would have twice the number of species in stock as the next best shop.

  • Simon Torossian

I rate this shop very highly . recommend anyone needing anything to do with fish or plants accessories etc. aquariums and pretty much a large variety of anything you need for a aquarium from start to finish beginners to experts everything you need is all there and all at great prices.. the last time I was there I bought a c02 diffuser and was so many to choose from for different setups but they had one that fitted my system. And I purchased a canister filter the time before that .. very high quality and easy to set up also has an inbuilt uv steriliser and was under $200 . . Be sure to check it out .. there’s also a second warehouse / factory just a few shops down which Is a 30second walk from the showroom .

  • michael edwards-vandenhoek

New Life Keysborough is by far the best aquarium shop in Melbourne, quite possibly Australia. John and Will are always super friendly and very supportive to everyone in the hobby. I witnessed them refuse to sell fish to someone because their tank wasn't yet cycled. They actual care about the fish unlike some of the other shops I have been to. Lachlan deserves 6 stars, he's so talented a catching even the most elusive cory. They regularly have stock of some of the rarest and sort after corydoras and apistogrammas imaginable. This place is better than a zoo, so many fish and the whole set up is very professional.

  • Lachie “Patches Fish Cave”

Newlife Aquarium Keysborough is my "local" fish shop even though it's 2 hours away it's the best around by far! Best prices, best stock, always great looking display tanks. Not to mention Will, John and the whole team, they always make time for me (as well as everyone else) and make sure I'm not struggling to find something or I'm not lost! (Although sometimes Will scares me by mistake when I zone out and stare into a tank and he comes to see if I need help) Love your work guys and keen on many more fishy adventures soon!

  • Craig Davis

I recently attended and was impressed by the advice given to me and how the staff assisted me with preparing my aquarium for fish. Once my aquarium Aqua scape was ready I returned and purchased 26 fish which are extremely healthy and have happily settled into their new home. I will be purchasing more fish from the new life aquarium in Keysborough and highly recommend them to anyone wanting to buy fish and plants. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and can be trusted. Thank you. Kind regards Craig Davis

  • Margaret Skitt

Great aquarium shop. The boys are very knowledgeable. I have never had a sick fish from them. I have moved a bit far away from them now. I still go back there for things I need. I am in bed. Don’t have a photo atm. So anything you need to know. You will get the best help at Newlife in Keysborough. Also a few doors down they have another shop. Very easy parking. This shop sell dry products, wood tanks etc. they will also make a tank for you. At a great price

  • Michelle Radan

Absolutely love the selection of fish, plants aquarium needs at new life aquarium, Keysborough. Prices are reasonable, afterpay is available, which is fantastic option. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and are always ready to help and give their opinion on what is best for your aquarium and fish. I have definitely recommended new life aquarium Keysborough to all my family and friends and will be going back in future.

  • hik.

Been going here for many years and it's certainly one of the best aquarium outlets in Victoria. Really neat stores, with a great selection of products, knowledgeable service and expertise, perfect spot to find your next aquarium or fishy friend! My only constructive criticism would be that I wish there were a larger variety of healthy plants to choose from for aquascaping, including tissue culture ☘️

  • Rachael Ackland

I am really happy with this aquarium. I ordered some beautiful celestial pearl danio's and the owner went above and beyond to get me some more. I also ordered other items and found them really helpful and honest with all my questions about plants , fish and substrate. Their delivery service was also spot on. Thankyou. Look forward to buying more from you as I am addicted.

  • Dion Koch

This shop was a good shop if you were after Freshwater fish. They had a coral tank in the middle of one of the rooms with a very small number of corals. The only Marine fish that they had at the time were colocated with the corals. If you were into Freshwater fish, then New Life Aquarium in Keysborough is certainly a must go to shop.

  • kkkKatie

This place is amazing. They have everything you can imagine and the staff are exceptionally helpful and knowledgable. It's definitely worth a visit if you haven't been. Both the service in store and online has been above and beyond expectations each time. Thanks NLA for my healthy supply of blackworms to keep my pea puffers happy :)

  • Dineth Wijendra

Very approachable staff that made me feel at home!! I was new to the hobby and quite intimidated but with their care and explanations I could quickly make do with what I have and they directed me to purchasing the right things for my paludarium and aquarium. With their help I have made two beautiful setups that I’m very proud of!!


Could not recommend these guys enough they have some one for everything! Always the best advice and quality fish! I travel 35 minutes past atleast 5 aquariums to get to new life because of the quality and customer service! If you are looking for a new aquarium this is the one and definitely worth the travel if you aren’t close!!

  • colin xie

First time here, proly wont come again. Could be a 5 stars for the helpful stuff members and the variety of fish they've got. BUT fishes arent in good conditions comparing to other aquariums. Also William really struck me down with his arrogance, wont let me pick my fish and when I finally got home one is dead already.

  • Luke Zece

What an awesome experience. Such a great range of fish species I have ever seen, the most variety of dwarf chiclids available in Melbourne!. John helped me with some unique and uncommon products to help with my new vivarium build. Will defineately be going back for all my aquarium needs! Thanks guys,! …

  • Heidi Gabrys-Dahaj

From the outside it doesn't look much, but once you get inside the store it another picture. They have a huge variety of fish and small sea creatures on offer. They also have a large variety of ornaments, tanks, fish food and other accessories. Great place to visit with kids to look at all the fish!


This place is possibly the best aquarium I’ve come across. An amazing range that I never saw elsewhere and I’ve been to damn near every aquarium I can find. The only other shop I could compare them to has closed. Go to this shop. It’s a 30 minute drive from where I live & it’s WELL worth the trip.

  • Street Heart

Great selection of fish and supplies and very helpful with questions, actually going to each other if unsure not just guessing or assuming as you get at many aquarium/pet shops which leads to miss identification etc etc Things like that make a big difference in opinion, will definitely be back.

  • Trevor Allen
