WHAT'S INSTORE AND WHY
The BuildThe adventures began in early June 2014. After extensive search for the best fitting space, we found the perfect small retail space on 156 St Anne’s Rd.
The FloorAfter taking many factors into consideration, we installed vinyl floors throughout the store. Compared to other available products, vinyl floors are more resistant to salt creep, allow for less maintenance and have a longer lifespan.
The LayoutWith counter height dual-sided viewing tanks and an open concept design vision in mind; we wanted Into the Blue to have a vast, endless feel as if completely submersed in sea life.
The StandsThe stands are designed to support a very large water volume and were built with a kick, allowing viewers a comfortable, close up view. They are also used for storage and maintenance sections, giving the store a clean look and feel.
The Invertebrate TanksInto the Blue’s 4 x 8 foot invert tanks act as two aisles and allow easy, interactive coral viewing. Each aquarium was built with a coast-to-coast overflow and euro-bracing.
The Fish WallThe fish tank system or fish wall, consists of 7 aquariums with built in dividers. This structure allows water to freely flow from one tank to the other. The tanks are connected to a large sump, which contains divisions for future breeding experiments.
The CounterThe ‘L’ shaped display tank also happens to be Into the Blue’s front counter. This 240 gallon system is made with 5/8 inch thick glass and allows a beautiful 5 sided viewing of it’s fish.
