Fish use gills to absorb oxygen, which is dissolved into the water along with carbon dioxide, discarded Chia Pets, and the constant gossip of narcissistic dolphins. Witness this fascinating process with today's Groupon to Living Sea Aquarium in Park Ridge. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get two passes for Living Sea Aquarium experience tours (a $10 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of fish and supplies.
Housing hundreds of aqueous inhabitants in more than 8,000 gallons of water, Living Sea Aquarium administers to marine mavens with water-dwelling equipment, a comprehensive selection of fish, and a marine-savvy staff. An array of freshwater, saltwater, and reef aquariums glow from the depths of this maritime menagerie, with clawed crawlers and kaleidoscopic reefs ready to be gazed upon in amazement or taken home for an equally impressive living-room display. With the Living Sea Aquarium experience tour, a knowledgeable tour guide will take gill-groupies around a number of themed panoramas, including the shark experience, the tide-pool touch tank, and the stingray-feeding tank, in which the cartilaginous fishes usually fill up on bread and are too full to order dessert. Tours can be scheduled any day of the week, and one adult must accompany every two children in the group.
As one of a few stores nationally to be certified by the Marine Aquarium Council for standards in handling, husbandry, and transport of its animals, Living Sea Aquarium's expert team of fish-whisperers offer a wealth of knowledge and advice on creating and maintaining awe-inspiring aquariums at home. Add excitement to home aqua-stadiums by racing three nassarius snails ($10) against six red-leg hermit crabs ($10), or slow them down with 10 pounds of Fiji rock obstacles ($5.49 per lb. for 10 lbs. or more). The space receives six new shipments of freshwater and saltwater swimmers each week, and with a sample of home tank water handy, a seven-day guarantee comes with the purchase of each fish to safeguard against illness or hitchhiking schemes to join koi cover bands.
