Oceanside Aquariums offers marine and tropical life right here in Mt. Juliet.
It all began when owners Craig and Curtis Vogan were given fish aquariums from their parents when they were children.
The two brothers were in a family that constantly moved due to their father being in the military. The family often resided around beaches due to military bases that the father was assigned to.
The Vogans moved to Mt. Juliet eight years ago where they currently reside and plan to stay and raise children in the future.
The Vogan brothers recently opened the aquarium store located at 2176 N. Mt Juliet Road.
The store is named after the California town the two brothers spent time in as children.
Oceanside Aquariums carries marine life and some products that other stores around won’t have in stock.
The retail store has a variety of tropical fish, coral, marine plant life, and tanks supplies.
Some of the rare ocean life the two brothers keep in stock include small stingrays, seahorses, baby sharks, and bright colored tropical fish, such as clown-fish.
Other common marine life in stock are goldfish, guppies, basic glow fish, etc.
If there is something particular that a customer is seeking, the brothers have a distributor that can get almost anything requested through a special order process.
