House of Tropicals brings you top quality tropical fish at reasonable prices for over 50 years. We have over 750 aquariums holding well over 1000 species, including many rare and unusual “oddball” fish.. Our store specializes in the sale and maintenance of fresh water, salt water, and brackish fish tanks. As area experts in tropical fish and aquariums, we love to pass our knowledge on to fellow fish lovers.
In addition to fish, our location stocks a wide and ever changing array of coral, crustaceans, and other invertebrates. House of Tropicals is an invert enthusiasts dream, with 16- 50-gallon aquariums of inverts with 2- 300 gallon coral tanks! We also carry plants, ornaments, live rock, aquariums, lights, and everything else you will need to create a beautiful aquatic environment in your home.
At House of Tropicals, we don’t just do fish. We are home to Maryland’s finest reptile room, with everything you need to raise snakes, reptiles, and amphibians. We also carry small mammals and rodents, like hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, ferrets, and mice (including feeders for the reptiles).
Garden ponds are another of our specialties. House of Tropicals has been in the garden pond business since 1967. We sell garden pond fish and some aquatic pond plants (in season). Fish are our specialty so se do not sell grass, seeds, trees, shrubs, or landscaping.
