Greetings, and welcome to Atlantis Aquatic Gardens. Atlantis is a retail aquarium and water garden store located in Terre Haute, IN. Atlantis has been in business with the same owners since 1975.
Atlantis was started by Bill Heyman and his wife, Connie. Bill and Connie are both life long residents of Terre Haute. Bill was an elementary teacher, having left the public schools to pursue the small business dream. The business is built around the goal of bringing kids closer to the natural world, with the belief that with proper instruction, we can learn and learn from good animal care practices. Each animal in our care brings us closer to learning how to preserve wild habitats and in the end, the animals in our care are ambassadors to their brothers in the wild. You will find that the staff of Atlantis will spend time with your family, explaining the displays, and helping you spend quality time with your family.
Atlantis is one of Indiana's largest aquarium shops, occupying a 13,000 square foot building, with an outdoor water garden area as well. Atlantis is best known for having a large selection of (two week minimum) acclimated marine life, and a huge selection of healthy freshwater fish, plants, and Japanese Koi. We also have a large selection of reptile and amphibian pets. We keep a full inventory of equipment and supplies to assure successful care of these precious creatures.
When you visit us, you will find many live aquarium displays and exotic animals, which have been "re-homed" but are not for sale. Don't be in a rush as your kids (and you) may want to feed the koi pond, or one of the reptile displays to enhance your visit. We believe the animals enjoy seeing you as much as your family enjoys seeing them.
You will be greeted by our friendly staff and then left to walk around the different areas of the store to enjoy the displays. If you are shopping for supplies, you will find a complete selection of aquarium and pond products with prices comparable to internet shopping.
Our experienced staff is ready to help you start your first aquarium or pond, or answer questions if you are already a hobbyist. We hope you can stop in to experience our dream in person, and if you can, let us help you bring a piece of the natural world into your home.
