ABs ten year anniversary

This month marks Aqua Botanics 10 year anniversary! From January 1999 to the present. It has been a fascinating ride for me and given me the oppotunity to meet so many different people from all walks of life. One of my first customers in 1999 was a high school kid named Lewis. He came back to me a few years later when he set up a tank in his college dorm, and then again a few years later when he set up an aquarium in his professional working office after he got married! I had a another customer in New York who called me a week after 9/11 who lost his brother. I've met american soldiers in Iraq via the internet, leading people in the industry and in the hobby, and people of all ages. No matter how brief some of these enounters have been, I have felt honered! I have also been priveledged to meet several people along the way over the last ten years who at various times were willing to help me with my WEB site, business, forum and what not. A college kid in Canada in 1999 designed my company logo for me which I still use today, and Jason Baliban gave the last major facelift to my WEB site. Thank you everyone.

There are many people out there who I have lost touch with over the years and countless new people that I would love to hear from. To facilitate this, over the weekend I will create an anniversary guestbook which anyone will be able to sign and tell a story if they wish. Any flames will be immediately deleted.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has been a part of these ten years, from its humble and crude begining to the present! Also to help celebrate, there will be various things on sale through out the month. I also want to update my photo gallery to include many peoples current aquarium. If you would like to contribute photos to my Gallery, please email me at [email protected]


Please visit the guest book after January 3rd.
