“Big but rude”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

Chew Thean Yang is a good aquarium shop to visits if you want to bring your family to a fish shop with lots of different species of aquatic animals, they also have a lot of accessory here. BUT, most of the worker here are very rude and impatient, especially a Indian worker at the counter, the workers also not very good in aquarium's knowledge, so I won't recommend you to ask them anything or even talk to them. And, don't try to park in the shop's car park since I am sure you will be cheated.

“The aquarium to go to in Penang”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

Although this is a privately owned aquarium which mainly sells fishes/pets and related accessories, the sheer variety of fish here qualifies this place as THE aquarium in Penang.
There is a pool inside with koi and other types of fish, which never ceases to amaze kids young and old. Of late, the proprietor has added the fish spa section.

The popularity comes with it the parking problem as it is also located along the busy Burmah Road.
