Aquariums and Aquarium Supplies
Stores that sell aquarium supplies have employees who are trained to care for the animals before they are sold and taken to their new homes. Employees are able to explain to new pet owners what living environment is best for their new pet mouse, lizard, turtle, or fish. Customers are able to ask how much food the pet needs to eat, what chemicals are safe to clean the tank or aquarium with, and if heat lamps are recommended to keep the pet warm.
Many employees are pet lovers and take serious care of the animals in the store. Most companies require a background and drug test before being hired. All employees must be hard workers who take very good care of the animals that are for sale.
Other supplies that stores have include plants for fresh water, salt water, and tropical fish, water filters, lights, gravel, and food for the each type of pet. Tanks come in different gallon sizes for customers. Young pets can start in the smaller gallon tanks, but must be moved into large aquariums as they grow in order to stay healthy and happy. Keeping the interior of the aquarium is extremely important. However, a safe glass cleaner must be used to keep the animal from being harmed.
Stores that sell aquarium supplies often have other pet equipment for animals that live outside of tanks. Dogs, cats, and birds are just a few animals stores cater to in addition to freshwater and saltwater fish, reptiles, and pet rodents. These stores often become a one stop shopping spot for pet owners.
