In the enchanting realm of aquatic wonders, the Dream Team at Northside Aquatics stands as a beacon of knowledge, passion, and unparalleled dedication. Let's delve deeper into the fascinating stories of each remarkable member, whose unique talents and experiences blend seamlessly to create an unbeatable force in the fish-keeping community.

Adam: At the helm of our team is Adam, a biological virtuoso armed with a Bachelor's Degree. With roots tracing back to 2007, Adam's journey in the fish-keeping hobby has blossomed into a comprehensive understanding of aquatic ecosystems. His expertise spans across freshwater fish and plants, saltwater and coral, reptiles, birds, and a myriad of invertebrates. Having honed his skills at Martin's Pet & Garden in downtown Elkhart, Adam brings not just knowledge but a passion that elevates the aquarium experience for our customers.

Heidi: Meet the versatile force, Heidi, who graced us with her presence in January 2019. Her role within the team is nothing short of a Swiss Army knife—handling tasks from cleaning tanks to providing customer assistance and orchestrating the meticulous organization of our inventory. Armed with a Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State University and a decade as a DNR Law Officer at Warren Dunes State Park, Heidi is the custodian of information on invasive species, ensuring that our team remains at the forefront of environmental consciousness.

Randy: The maestro behind Northside Aquatics, Randy is not just the founder but the heartbeat of our establishment. Over the last 15 years, he has skillfully acquired fish breeders and pet stores, solidifying his reputation as a visionary within the industry. Randy's expertise transcends the aquatic realm; he is a mechanical virtuoso, wielding profound knowledge of aquarium equipment and an uncanny ability to repair anything mechanical. And that breathtaking Dodge Ram dually downstairs? It's not just a vehicle; it's a testament to Randy's passion and commitment, and no, it's not for sale.

Kassie: Completing our symphony is the lovable Kassie, the resident pupper-dog. More than a mascot, Kassie is an integral part of our daily operations, her infectious enthusiasm adding a layer of joy to every interaction. Always on the lookout for a tasty treat, Kassie's initial shyness quickly melts away in exchange for belly rubs. Her wagging tail and loyal companionship make her the heartbeat of our store, creating a welcoming atmosphere for all who walk through our doors.
