About Old Orchard Aquarium


Since 1991, we have been at our current location as a “full line retail aquatic pet store”. 175 display tanks comprise 2000 gallons of salt water, 2500 gallons of coral reef and 2700 gallons of tropical fresh water. We feature a 600-gallon look down reef and a 2000-gallon shark pond. With a combined 55+ years of fish-keeping experience, we have been awarded certification as a “Tetra Certified Retailer” and a “Marineland “A” Account”. We are the only "Seachem Platinum Select Dealer" in Illinois. We are also a member of Nexpet®, a national group of independent pet retailers.

OOA Team


We focus exclusively on aquatic pets. We are continually trying to learn more about the aquarium trade to pass on our knowledge to our customer base. We have an extensive training program for our staff members. We send our people to schools and seminars to further their skill sets relating to our business. We request training assistance from our vendors to educate the staff on what their products do and how to properly sell their products.

We have a store that is stocked full of merchandise. Our goal is 100% in stock efficiency, which allows for one stop shopping for all aquatic needs.

We work hard on securing unique products available only from us to set us apart from our competition. We constantly look for new and proprietary sources for livestock and dry goods that will assist our customer base in setting up and keeping a successful aquatic environment.
