Congressional Aquarium Inc.
Congressional Aquarium off of Rockville Pike has an ample supply of fish, invertebrates and aquarium supplies. I've been going to them for a few years now and have always been happy with the service. The last visit, for instance, I was looking to pick up a shoal of Serpae Tetras. A tank there was full of Serpae Tetras, but the gentleman who was serving me took a close look and said, "They are looking a bit sick" and he recommended I check back in a few days. In other words, they are not so intent on trying to make money that they will push sick fish on their customers.
Tips & Advices
Pet owners usually sign a waiver stating that any injury or illness a dog suffers while at daycare is the responsibility of the owner. However, most facilities carry liability insurance and pet business insurance in the event of a serious incident. To prevent illness, facilities are strict about requiring proof of vaccination and general health from a veterinarian prior to accepting a dog. However, in an off-leash setting, scuffles or fights might occur. Reputable facilities will often hire vet assistants who can treat minor injuries and under-the-weather dogs.  For anything more serious, a good daycare should make it a priority to get the dog to a vet, and get in immediate contact with the owner.
