Andrew, Owner of Pacific Pond and Aquarium

Andrew, Owner


Andrew has been keeping fish as long as he can remember.  From 2001 to 2004, Andrew spent his time sailing his boat Tondelayo through the tropics from Los Angeles to Mexico, Central America, the Galapagos, and across many islands in the South Pacific, where he spent countless hours observing marine reef fish in their natural habitat.  In late 2007, he purchased Pacific Pond and Aquarium and has been working full time on ponds and aquariums ever since.  He also has a degree in Electrical Engineering and an MBA.  Andrew has both a pond and reef (seahorse) aquarium.




In 2013, David joined Pacific Pond and Aquarium bringing his 5 years of previous professional experience in Aquarium and Pond maintenance and a particular interest in Iwagumi style planted tanks. David was exposed to the aquarium hobby at a very young age. He credits his mother with ignighting his love and passion for Aquatic life. The hobby she introduced him to at a young age, has now become his career. He is the proud owner of both a custom planted tank and coral reef tank which he enjoys during his free time at home.
