We generally ship orders out within 1-2 Business Days so you can receive it as soon as possible! Have a look at our Shipping page for more details on our ship days for each Shipping Carrier and category.
We do our best to reduce our plastic and paper usage by cutting down on packaging, and re-using shipping materials whenever possible to help protect the eco-systems our Plants and Fish may come from.
All of our Plants and Fish are either home-grown, home-bred, or sourced sustainably from Local and Domestic Plant Nurseries and Aquatic Wholesalers.
We believe that Small Businesses are the backbone of the American economy. We source all of our Plants and Fish from Small Local or Domestic Family-Run Businesses, and do our best to support other Small Businesses.
Windy City Aquariums is a small Chicago-based aquatics store run by a young couple who is passionate about plants and fish-keeping. Our aim is to help you bring nature into your home, and to enable fish-keepers and aquarists to keep their tanks and fish healthy and happy while doing it affordably. We do our best to offer our customers the best prices and quality on all our products. All of our plants and animals are well-cared for by us before they are shipped out to their new homes, and the products that we sell are either ones that are personally used by us, or have been tested by us before we decide to carry them in our store, to ensure that our customers only receive high quality products, and products made by trusted brands that we, as aquarists and hobbyists ourselves, would be happy to use.
