Notice to all our Wonderful Customers at

Aquarium World.

It is with great regret that after 21½ years at this location we have made the very difficult decision to close Aquarium World.  We would like to extend all of you many thanks for your years of patronage. This decision has not come lightly as we truly enjoy what we do, particularly helping our customers.

Effective, October 25, 2018 we will begin liquidating our inventory, displays, fixtures, and equipment. We will no longer be bringing in any additional inventory or accepting livestock trades/donations.

Thank you for your many years of patronage

Welcome to Houston’s most exciting aquarium store!

At Aquarium World, we believe you deserve the best: The best in livestock, products, and, most importantly, the best in knowledgeable  service from people you can trust.

AQUARIUM WORLD has the atmosphere and appearance of a public aquarium, yet functions as a retail establishment. The 12,000+ square ft store is rich in display aquaria, the centerpiece being a 40,000 gallon tank that is 44 ft in length and 14 ft deep. This is one of the largest display aquariums for a retail establishment in the world! Additional displays include a 5000 gallon saltwater tide pool, and our newly rebuilt Koi River, below a wonderful redwood wall with a built in  300 gallon freshwater planted tank.

AQUARIUM WORLD stocks many thousands of marine and freshwater creatures, as well as Houston’s best selection of Aquariums, and an excellent stock of virtually every supply item needed by the new or advanced aquarium hobbyist.

Our personnel are primarily long-term, knowledgeable hobbyists whose number one concern is your success and enjoyment of the aquarium hobby.

Open in June of 1997, AQUARIUM WORLD represents the culmination of years of aquarium industry experience combined with the desire to raise aquarium hobby retailing to a much higher level. The store’s previous “incarnation” consisted of two stores operating in Houston for 8 years as Anything Fishy.
