The ocean is a socio-economic mirror, with submerged sealife cities of barracuda bus drivers and dogfish doctors reflecting the hustle and bustle of aboveground humanity. Learn about yourself by looking in on aqueous life with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $25 worth of fish, pond supplies, and more at The Aquarium Shop, located in Royal Oak. Your Groupon is good for anything in the store, including sale items, though you must use the entire value in one visit.
The Aquarium Shop unleashes an assortment of aquatic denizens on land-living lifeforms, like a garage sale held by King Poseidon to raise money for repairs to his seahorse-powered cruiser. Items include saltwater, freshwater, and pond merchandise, complete with pond fish ($5–$25), pond plants ($5–$25), pond food ($10–$50), tropical fish ($2–$30), saltwater fish ($5–$100), and live rock ($8 per lb.). Find actors for your all-koi version of Hamlet, pick up an African cichlid for prom-night punch-bowl pranks, or buy coral with which to dress up in doll's clothing and play tea party. The Aquarium Shop also has a large variety of tanks in stock for fish owners looking to update the digs of their deep-dwelling dorsalled doppelgangers.
The Aquarium Shop has been open since 1980, with friendly service still the focus of its staff, including accounting whiz Bandit and senior vice president of East Coast sales Max. Any of the fish fiends at The Aquarium Shop will happily help you figure out which fish makes the quietest house pet and what food to feed your newly acquired tank.
