Store Spotlight: Pacific AquariumRachel Torrence
Meet Pacific Aquarium & Plant NYC, Seachem’s Bronze Select Dealer of the Quarter!
Chi Cho, the owner of Pacific Aquarium, says it best:
“New York City’s source for exotic tropical fish and their state-of-the-art, man-made environments, hasn’t always commanded its indisputable following among consumers in one of the world’s foremost cities. Established in 1980, the small, unproven general pet store entered a crowded marketplace on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, armed with little more than an expert staff and a commitment to service both before and after the fact. But then, what else would we need?
Like many of the species we import and offer, Pacific, now entrenched just east of New York’s Chinatown district on Delancey Street between Eldridge and Forsyth Streets, has evolved and thrived. Now solely an enclave for aquarium enthusiasts, the company, by its eclectic selections of freshwater life and equipment.
We design and build tanks up to 500 gallons to fit any space. Many area homes, offices and restaurants boast our custom work, and take advantage of our regular maintenance service to ensure the best possible environment. And these are truly environments, dressed with a full line of decorative ornaments.
Even better, we carry a beautiful variety of true aquatic plants from Anubias and Christmas Moss to Baby Tears and Glossostigma, all supported by a selection of substrate, which enhanced by our variety of lighting designed for the natural aquarium.
Pacific houses close to 150 stocked aquariums with many dozens of species of fancy goldfish; koi, New World cichlids, cicnlids from both Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika; silver and black arrowanas; tropicals like praecox rainbows and cardinals; killifish; and even puffers.
Specializing in both freshwater and marine fish to live corals, we proudly offer an exotic, truly global selection of species to choose from, and the products and expertise to keep them healthy, from top-of-the-line fish foods to medicine/antibiotics recommended by our experienced staff.
Our history of recognized success is proof that we’ll continue to provide the finest selection of fish and quality products as well as a fine, friendly establishment. Come in and see – we’re open from 10am to 7:00pm seven days a week including holidays.”
