Picture Perfect

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

The Abt aquarium is home to lots of beautiful fish and eel. Each day the aquarium must look spotless so customers can try out our extensive line of cameras and HD camcorders. Although we have an aquarium service come in to clean once a week, some of Abt’s employees help too. Russell, who works in electronics service, loves to dive in to clean the coral and feed the fish.

Surrounding two sides of the aquarium are the cameras and HD camcorders for customers to test on the beautiful fish and coral.

I never realized what a challenge it was to take pictures of an aquarium. Luckily, Abt has some great small electronics experts to help me choose the settings on the camera to best shoot photos through glass. The pictures I took, for being an amateur, aren’t too bad.

Why don’t you come in and take some photos of our aquarium and test out a few new cameras and HD camcorders.

Fighting "Fish"

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

Two Green Moray eels reside in the Abt Aquarium. A 10 year-old that minds its business and an eight year-old that’s pretty feisty. It turns out that today was just the culmination of an on-going fight they’ve had for the past six months.


Abt’s own, Joe “Neptune” McCarthy had to dive in and rescue the Eel who instigates the fighting—why? The older, more docile eel finally got revenge for all of the fighting. He bit his eel-nemesis.


The injured eight year-old had to be taken out of the aquarium and placed in a tranquilizer tub, then got moved once again to a hospital tub. For now, there will be peace in the aquarium—at least until the naughty eel returns.
