We were there for Show called TANKED!!!! At Rocket Fizz store building fish tank
I don’t understand why aquacultured or tank-raised fish are more expensive than others. At my local fish store, these fish are much more expensive than the same fish harvested from the wild. Is there any advantage to buying a tank-raised fish? The fish store attendant claims they are hardier than the ones from the wild, although I think he is just trying to sell me more expensive fish. How do I know they are really tank-raised?
The advantages, as Brian pointed out, to buying aquacultured fish are numerous. First off, any fish born and raised in captivity has never been subjected to any harsh parasites. Many wild-caught fish enter and leave an aquarium store riddled with parasites or bacterial infections. In addition, it is far less stressful for a fish to be shipped across a county or state rather than all the way from an island in the South Pacific. Some fish breeders supply outlets in their hometowns, so the fish are just transported a few miles from an aquarium to an aquarium store. Also, aquacultured animals are raised from birth on prepared or frozen aquarium . Aquarists often find tank-raised marine fish will begin accepting fish food within hours of placement in the home aquarium. This is a far different experience from trying to coax a stressed wild-caught fish into accepting fish food.

It’s not what you’d expect to find in the middle of a soda and candy shop, but a 250-gallon fish tank in the shape of a rocket has landed in Camarillo’s Rocket Fizz store on Ventura Boulevard.The answer is that we did get something out of it. We got a fish tank created and installed by Wayde and Brett, on a quicker timeline than usual, and loved every second of it. From what I've been told, our equipment that runs the tank was a big upgrade. We also got a credit at the fish store when stocking the tank. So it wasn't that we didn't get any freebies, but the thing itself was certainly, definitely, 100% not approaching free.The 13,000-gallon tank has an elaborate filtration and pumping system and a waterfall above it. It is similar to ones in other stores across the country, but the fish in the Hooksett tank are found in local waters.When asked how can pet stores sell more aquariums, both Raymer and King say that having great display tanks is the number-one way to drive sales of tanks, as well as fish and products. “Every pet store with aquariums should have at least three nice display tanks, including a reef, a freshwater with live plants, and a regular saltwater tank where you can show the world what you can do,” says King. He also stresses that having display tanks allows customers, especially kids, to “see the tank, touch it, and realize they love that tank and want to have one like it at home.”
