In the early 2000s, while managing a busy aquarium store, Phil regularly heard requests for professional aquarium servicing, and decided to take the plunge in 2005.
After keeping aquariums since the age of eight, he spent three years studying aquaculture at the University of Tasmania, and over 15 years in the wholesale and retail aquarium industry. Along the way he even won the prize for “Best Furnished Aquarium”, a hotly contested category in the Ekka competition.
Since establishing Aquariums To Go, Phil has seen just about every aquarium imaginable. It’s a lot of fun going all over Brisbane and seeing the different kinds of fish and aquariums that people have in their homes and businesses. He also loves the challenge of designing and building something unique and interesting for a client.
In order to improve his ability to give you the best possible aquarium experience, Phil continually undertakes training and research on the latest developments in aquarium keeping practices and products, as well as making new contacts. This includes attending trade shows, conferences and workshops, as well as SCUBA diving and visiting commercial aquariums.
