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, December 2, 2018 Aquarium World is closed

Thank you for your many years of patronage

The Staff at Aquarium World

We do still have some system tanks (holding tanks we sold fish from), equipment, store fixtures, tools, freezers, shelving, etc. to get rid of.  If you are interested send us an email at support@aquariumworld.net and we can see if we have something you are interested in.  There is no livestock available (fish, corals, plants, etc.. they were all sold or sent to pre-arranged rescue/aquariums/zoos/etc November 30, 2018)

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.
