About Us

Coomara Aquatics is an Alberta-based online firm catering to the Canadian Aquarium hobby market, providing information on breeding premium bettas and high-quality aquatic botanicals.

The Story Behind the Name

The company name Coomara was formed from an alliteration of the two Celtic words:

  • “Cu” meaning dog
  • “Mara” meaning sea

Put together, they mean dog of the sea or sea dog.

The founder chose this company name for two reasons:

  • The founder owns an ancient breed of water dog called the Irish Water Spaniel.
  • In seafaring traditions, a sea dog is a seasoned sailor, mate or deckhand, which can be counted on to pilot a ship (customers) through rough seas and help get the ship safely to port (where the customers want to go).
How We Work

At Coomara Aquatics we are that seasoned and experienced deckhand - a voice of reason that will guide you our customer through troubled the often confusing seas of acquiring, caring for and hopefully breeding your bettas, guppies and rare livebearers.

Please note Coomara Aquatics does not have an official brick and mortar storefront. We operate as a virtual store. Visits to the “Fish-room” are by appointment only.
