About Aquarius

Aquarius, a unique store with lots of history!

Aquarius has been a leading enterprise in the aquarium-keeping hobby for the past 60 years.  Our store is a second generation family business that's been able to serve over a million satisfied customers during the past decades.


Aquarius, it's about being presented with countless choices!

Visiting our store means discovering a vast variety of freshwater tropical fish and aquatic plants. The equipment and products we carry in our store have been tried and tested by our team of experts. We're always getting new products and we always keep track of new trends. This way, we can help keep our loyal customers up-to-date on the many advances and breakthroughs that are continually being made in the hobby. As you may already know, the aquarium-keeping hobby is in a state of constant evolution!


Aquarius, it's about quality, first!

All our fish are imported directly from breeding farms in Singapore and other countries. New arrivals are kept in quarantine for select periods of time, depending on behavioural factors as well as species' physiology. We take great pride in selling healthy, disease-free fish! In order to accomplish this, we've setup a large quarantine area (over 130 tanks) in our basement. Come and ask us about it during your next visit. We'll be glad to give you a quick tour of our quarantine setup.


Aquarius, it's about good customer service!

Whether you're an experienced hobbyist or a new recruit, we'll always be ready to listen and provide appropriate advice about different aspects of aquarium-keeping. Several of our team members have over a decade of experience under their belts, working at Aquarius and helping it's customers. Our team has a strong belief that good customer service is of utmost importance. This is why our customers keep coming back year after year!


Aquarius, it's even about savings!

Our prices are constantly being adjusted to counter those of competing businesses in the industry. If you see a lower price in another store, or even online, we'll be able to match it upon receipt of proof.


Store-Return Policy

Products purchased within a 15-day delay can be returned in store, either for an exchange or a full refund. Please be advised that items in question need to be new, undamaged and must come in their original packaging.


Our live-stock guarantee

We guarantee the health of our fish and live-stock during selling point. We cannot guarantee the well-being of fish once they've been purchased and taken out of our possession. However we do care a great deal about customers and their fish-loss issues and our team is always ready to assist in case of need. Fish loss can be attributated to a multitude of factors, the vast majority of them being being out of our control. If you find yourself loosing fish and/or plants shortly after your purchase, do not hesitate to contact our team of experts. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the loss, Aquarius is ready to replace your fish.

The three most frequent causes of fish-loss include: 1- Stress during transport and improper introduction into the home aquarium 2- Water parameters (pH, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates) 3- Non-compatible tankmates and aggression
