Fish Nutrition & Diet

Every aquatics department should carry an assortment of food that will appeal to a wide variety of fish species.

Aquatic Filtration

Every fish tank requires a form of filtration, and by providing customers with product suggestions, retailers can increase a store’s bottom line.

Specialty Aquariums

Specialty tank setups that are created by store staff present a unique option for customers used to seeing ordinary pre-packaged kits from the store’s competitors.

Aquatic Advertising

In this tough economy, it is important for retailers to get creative when advertising and marketing their aquatics section.

Aquarium Maintenance Services

Aquarium servicing can make up a significant percentage of a shop’s revenue, and few aquatic retailers can afford to ignore this business opportunity.

Setups That Sell

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of any aquarium setup, ranked well above the tank, stand and décor items as far as retail sales are concerned.

Trends in Fish Nutrition

Recommending customers feed fish a variety of foods will help keep fish happy and healthy, while increasing fish food sales.

Quality Control

By educating fishkeepers about water quality, retailers can help hobbyists enjoy their tanks while profiting from sales of related products.

A Decorated Aquarium

Décor items like plants, rocks and gravel not only enhance a tank’s environment, they greatly contribute to a pet store’s bottom line.

Marine Livestock Report

Maintaining marine animals requires a great deal more skill and knowledge than keeping freshwater fish–but it is also incredibly rewarding.

Freshwater Livestock Report

Selling freshwater livestock has never required a higher level of competency than it does now.

Selling Reef Products

All Systems Go
