Undoubtedly, we set the standard of quality, customer service and savings in exotic fish and reef aquariums in Orlando.IF YOU’VE EVER OWNED A PERSONAL AQUARIUM, you know how hard it can be to maintain. You’ve got to keep the water clean, you’ve got to make sure it has the right level of saltiness, and you need to ensure the fish you put into it won’t eat each other. I once made the mistake of putting a goldfish into a tank with a Siamese fighting fish (also known as a betta). When I woke up the next morning, the betta was gone, and my goldfish was incredibly fat. Even if the pet-store clerk hadn’t led me astray, it was not the outcome I would have expected for that fight.Is my SERVICE ANIMAL welcome at the Aquarium? Certified service dogs that fulfill a necessary service are welcome at the Aquarium. Personal pets are not permitted at the Aquarium. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and are not allowed. Please be aware of the unique situation of bringing a service animal where live animal collections are held. Some of our animals (like the Clouded leopards) see your animal as a threat or prey, which may cause our animals (or yours) to become agitated. For the safety and well-being of all the animals, the staff who cares for them, and all patrons we ask that you keep the animal a safe distance away from exhibit windows. Service dogs must be in control by their owner at all times and any dog that causes a disruption to facility operations will be asked to leave.Sometimes size really does matter.
