- About Us
Premier Aquarium Maintenance Company for the San Francisco Bay Area
Aquatic Central was founded in the Summer of 2003. Initially begun as an offshoot of the owners (Chris) primary hobby at the time, it soon became much more than that. The more time and energy spent, the more the business grew and it was realized that this might be Chris' calling. So it was then, that in August of 2006, this small and quaint aquarium started taking on a new shape. Inventory was added, product lines expanded, live stock quadrupled, and square footage doubled. With many long and hard hours, the owner utilized his many years of experience from working in pe tstores as a kid, to being an avid hobbyist and forum contributor, to running the store to create a store which caters to the many needs hobbyists. His aim was to amend the difficulties aquarists alike face in the ever demanding, yet enjoyable, pastime of aquaculture.
The result, an aquarium by aquarists, for aquarists. Aquatic Central is still run primarily by the owner himself. All aspects of the business are overseen by him, Chris. Everything from emails, system maintenance, to packaging of livestock are either done or overseen by him. So consumers, both online and in-store, can always have full confidence that they are dealing with someone ultimately responsible.
This also applies to the aquarium maintenance division. Early on we discovered the unique niche of maintaining aquariums for our clients and customers. One in which we provide an invaluable service and get back to what drew us to this industry in the first place; aquatic husbandry. The owner Chris almost exclusively runs this division of Aquatic Central due to his extreme passion for maintaining aquariums. No details go unnoticed and every life is valued dearly in the systems we maintain.
