Steve Waldron: The Man Behind Aquarium Zen

Two Years in the Making, Steve Waldron has been growing plants, maintaining environments, designing space and dreaming for this day.

With the intention of introducing people to a more natural experience of fish aquarium care-taking, Aquarium Zen is more about stewardship of an ecosystem than just about fish.

Opening today, Saturday September 13, Waldron’s vision has come out of the depth of his imagination to the surface. The place is just beautiful! Even if you are not in the market for a home aquarium set-up, the environment is inspiring to be in.

Waldron says that Live Plant Aquariums are great for year-round garden lovers. With live plants you have to prune and weed just like an outside garden, but this garden you get to populate with amazing underwater creatures.

Aquarium Zen is located at 920 NE 64th St andĀ open Wed – Fri 1pm – 8pm, Sat & Sun 11-6. Being a one man operation, AZ is closed on Mon & Tues.

Be an awesome neighbor and stop by and welcome Aquarium Zen to the Roosevelt Neighborhood (just a hop over from the U-district) Between the Sunlight Cafe and Bol.

all the plants are live and can take up to a year to fully sustain a fish population
