AQUARICA Near Mythical Creatures and Things

The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, Mermaids, we haven't found them...yet.  We have found some often talked about (at least on the internet) but rarely seen creatures (at least in Halifax) and brought them in for your viewing and fish keeping pleasure...

Silver Arowana - aka the Dragon Fish.  A beautiful carnivore that can grow up to 36 inches!
Seahorses - the only creature where the male becomes pregnant.  The female transfers eggs to the male which are fertilized by the male in his pouch and carried until term!

Pea Pufferfish - a freshwater puffer that grows to a maximum of 1.4 inches !?!  Yep, its real.

African Butterfly Fish -  Looks like it could be a bird?!?  And it closest living relative may be the arowana.

Freshwater Gobies - Hopping around from rock to rock in a freshwater tank close to you.  

Red Crystal Shrimp - Iconic small white and red freshwater shrimp.  If the back of one of these shrimps looks like the flag of Japan, you will be in for a lot of Yen!

Axolotls - the Mexican walking fish that can regenerate.  Its true!

And where to keep these fish?  In addition to our large selection of bare tanks and starter kits, we have recently brought in a large selection of Biorbs and curved glass tanks/kits, along with ADA soils and products (arriving very soon).  Come see for yourself if these products are as good as the hype...we think so!
