AQUARICA Celebrates Summer!

Wow, what a hot summer! Luckily we live in beautiful NS where the ocean is never more than a few minutes away! And luckily, we have A/C at the store!

If you don't have A/C, the heat is fine for most tropical fish. If you have goldfish, axolotls, or danios, it may be a bit warm for them and, if possible, you might consider moving them to the coolest part of your living space. On the hottest days, perhaps wrap some ice packs in bags and float them in the tank.

At the store, our saltwater livestock has started to arrive, including:

Cerith Sand Snails
Hermit Crabs
Carpenter's Wrasse
Sixline Wrasse
Emperor Angelfish (Juvenile)
