The Big Reveal

The Big Reveal is here! We’ve converted an entire room into a pond for our rays. If you haven’t seen it in person yet, you’re missing out! Happy Fish Friday!


Fish Friday Special

Forest Lake Pets supports responsible aquatics husbandry that reduces the spread of invasive species to Minnesota waters. Help us in this mission by taking the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Aquarium and Pond Hobbyist Survey.

Let’s protect our lakes and build the longevity of the hobby together!

For the safety and health of the public and our employees we ask that you come in only for the supplies that you need. The most effective way to minimize risk of the virus’ transmission is to reduce density and maximize social distancing.
