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.
