Northside Aquatics dream team staff.

Meet the Dream Team!


Adam has a Bachelor's Degree in Biology and has been involved in the fish keeping hobby since 2007.  Adam came to us from Martin's Pet & Garden in downtown Elkhart.  He has extensive experience with freshwater fish and plants, saltwater and coral; reptiles; birds; invertebrates; and many others as well.


Heidi came to us in January of 2019. She helps part time everywhere in the store and warehouse from cleaning tanks, customer assistance, to organizing inventory. She has a Bachelors of Science degree from Michigan State University. She was a Warren Dunes State Park DNR Law Officer for 10 years, so Heidi helps keep us up to date on invasive species of plants and fish.


Randy is the founder and owner of Northside Aquatics LLC.  He has been buying out fish breeders and pet stores going out of business for the last 15 years.  He is a wealth of knowledge regarding all sorts of aquarium equipment and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to repairing anything mechanical.  The beautiful Dodge Ram dually downstairs belongs to him, and no, it's not for sale.

Kassie is (literally) the resident pupper-dog of Northside Aquatics. She can often be found following anyone who has food.  Though she's very shy at first, she will soon warm up to you in trade for belly rubs.
