Our Editorial History

Aqualand Pets Plus was established in 1972 by friends who loved biology and fish tanks. They started as a small hobby store, selling tropical fish and aquarium supplies.

Over the years, they expanded their inventory and services to include reptiles, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, bunny rabbits, rats, and mice.

They also hired staff who were experts in animal care and maintenance and who could offer friendly and helpful guidance to customers with their more than 100 years of extensive experience.
