although not the only fish
store to bear this name worldwide
, the Aquarium World
in Houston, TX
is one of the largest and most well-known.
the store is most well-known among visitors for its 40 thousand gallon saltwater reef tank, its top-viewable Tang Sea, and an twelve foot high *indoor* waterfall which pours into the Koi River. favorites in the Abyss (the huge reef tank) include two green moray eels--butch and sundance.
it has a name among hobbyists, however, for having an extrodionarily large selection of fresh and saltwater fish for sale, helpful staff, and a large variety of top of the line tanks and supplies. the mailing list, which covers all 50 states and many countries overseas, has over 24 thousand subscribers, and the store ships fish worldwide.
