Maryland’s best spot for salt water and fresh water fish.
The House of Tropicals brings you top quality tropical fish at a reasonable price since 1967. We have over 750 aquariums holding well over 1,000 species, including many rare and unusual “oddball” fish. We specialize in the sale and maintenance of fresh water, salt water, and brackish fish tanks. We are area experts in tropical fish aquariums and we love to pass our knowledge on to fellow fish lovers.
In addition to fish, we stock 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.
Having such a wide variety of fish, coral, and inverts requires a wide variety of food. For live food, we stock Crayfish, Rosey Red Minnows, Guppies, Ghost Shrimp, Feeder Goldfish, DTs, Rotifers, and Reef Pods. House of Tropicals also stocks a large variety of frozen foods.
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. We have been in the garden pond business since 1967. We sell garden pond fish and some aquatic pond plants (in season). We do not sell grass, seeds, trees, or shrubs, or landscaping. Fish are our business and we know our business.
We carry the other pet supplies such as bird food and other small animal gear. We no longer have live birds and we do not carry dog and cat supplies.
The House of Tropicals is family owned and operated, located in Glen Burnie, Maryland just off route 97. We are convenient to Annapolis, Baltimore, Severna Park, and Crofton, though we do have customers from Pennsylvania, Delaware, Washington D.C., and Virginia. If you like going to the Baltimore Aquarium, you’ll love our store. Bring the kids or bring a date. Stop in, the admission is free.
