Located at 668 Erb St. West in Waterloo, Ontario we are the area’s newest Aquarium Specialty store. After over 15 years of Aquarium Servicing in Southern Ontario including being the maintenance provider for the Bass Pro Shop in Vaughan, Ontario we decided in 2011 to open our first retail store.
Our store offers everything you need to setup and maintain a freshwater or saltwater aquarium and we also carry reptiles! Our fishroom has over 100 aquariums with everything from African Cichlids to small Tetras and Live freshwater plants to Saltwater Corals! We carry all kinds of aquarium products including some unique brands such as Dr. Tims Bacterial additive, Cadlights Aquariums, Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers, Hanna Checkers, Maxspect Razor LED Lights, Marineland Filters, Sicce Products and much much more!
When we decided to open our store we knew we wanted it to be different from a lot of the other Aquarium Stores, we wanted it to be CLEAN!
We never liked shopping in Aquarium Stores that were dark and dingy and stinky and we don’t expect our customers to either. We take great pride in keeping our store clean and bright and we also try our best to make it an enjoyable atmosphere to shop in with excellent customer service! You’ll always be greeted with a smile at Aquariums by Design.
Along with Bruce our 8ft Great White Shark that hangs from our ceiling and greets you as you enter the store to our 1000 gallon Piranha Pond, there is always something cool to see at our store!
