Recommended: Aquarium Resources

Our companion email list, the Cleveland Park Listserv, is a treasure trove of recommendations. We want to share on All Life Is Local, on a periodic basis, the best recommendations that have been posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv. You'll be able to search All Life Is Local for "contractor," "plumber," "computer tech," "auto body shop" -- whatever you need. The search box, in case you have trouble finding it, is to the right and down a bit.

I have found Congressional Aquarium, 138 Congressional Lane, Rockville, MD 20852, 301-881-6182, to be a great source of advice and gear, their staff is knowledgeable as opposed to the typical pet store chains. Congressional even fixed our malfunctioning light fixture from our classroom turtle tank for no charge, just had to buy the light bulbs for my newly working fixture! They can tell you how to change the water frequently to keep the turtles healthy, how to set up a tank to give a turtles a dry basking area, etc. A basking area can be made with plain old flat stones, so it needn't be costly. They have a turtle tank onsite, so you can see how they have set it up.
