Established in 1969.
Elmer's Aquarium Pet Center was founded in 1969 by Elmer Knabe and his wife Catharine. The store expanded several times into adjacent store-rooms and basement.
Elmer's Aquarium is still family owned and operated. Elmer Knabe passed away in 1995. Elmer's son Gary, and his daughter, Karen, have been involved with the business since its beginnings and operate the store today.
At Elmer's you'll find a large selection of aquariums and supplies along with healthy freshwater, saltwater and pond fish. We also specialize in installation and maintenance of your home or office aquarium.
