Store of the Day: Reef Aquarium on 55th and 8th





One of the most fascinating things about the Chinese arriving in Sunset park is their fascination with aquarium fish. In particular large carps known as Koi. Sunset Park can therefore boats the largest concentration of aquarium fish stores in the borough. For starters is the above store located near Pacificana Restaurant. No they don't sell fish for eating, though we have plenty of edible  fish stores as well.  The place is a trip to visit. unlike Petland on  5th these stores only have fish and not merely Koi but other collectibles as well. You could spend a good couple of hours inside just gazing at all the different tropical fish (both salt and fresh water). The pictures below might entice you to visit them. They are on 8th Avenue near 55th street. Of course they're not the Brooklyn aquarium butt for a local stop, well worth the visit. Who knows? Maybe you'll buy a tank and little fishies :-).

I didn't know that Chinese are also into kois. I figured it was only the Japanese.
