Aquarium Adventure to open in San Antonio

(Chillicothe, OH, September 12, 2012) -  A new kind of adventure is coming to Texas. Aquarium Adventure, a specialty “aquatics-only” retail superstore will debut in San Antonio on Saturday, September 29.

This exciting shopping experience might be described best as having an “underwater adventure.” The new store, locally owned and operated by the Apellaniz-Muzquiz family, will be located in Westwood Center on Culebra Road, across from Super Target.

The approximately 6,000 square foot Aquarium Adventure in San Antonio will immerse visitors in more than 5,000 gallons of water and will carry a wide selection of tropical fish, marine fish, goldfish, corals and aquatic plants. Many exciting features have been implemented into the store’s design, including a koi pond. 

“This is unlike anything in San Antonio,” said Javier Apellaniz, “Not only are the features pleasant to look at, but they also serve as learning tools for our customers.”

Aquarium Adventure tanks are arranged by continents – Africa, South America, Central America and Asia – for display of freshwater fish, and by oceans and seas for all marine species.

Staff members at Aquarium Adventure are fish experts in continuous training. They are capable of answering questions on fish-keeping and providing solutions with water quality, nutrition, aquatic equipment and water gardening products. 

Aquarium Adventure, a specialty “aquatics-only” retail superstore, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petland, Inc. For more information on Aquarium Aventure, please visit
