Mike brings over 40 years of successful experience in freshwater and marine aquariums. As a youngster, Mike had a freshwater aquarium and was a true hobbyist before Seatech Aquariums was even born. Mike was a member of The Desert Marine Society in the mid 1990’s learning about different methods and ideas about saltwater keeping, before forming his dream come true to providing excellent full solution services to clients. It was always talked about that more and more people were buying and setting up saltwater aquariums, however they were not having long term success. With the knowledge and seeing first hand industry challenges, Seatech Aquariums was born in 1999.

Customer Feedback

Jimmie  Hernandez with Seatech Aquariums is simply the best. In our rookie years of starting up reef and saltwater aquariums, we struggled with livestock and water quality. After contacting Seatech Aquariums online, Jimmie impressed us with the initial consultation and provided the expertise that any level (novice to expert) aquarium owner is looking for. Seatech now handles our aquarium maintenance and over the last 5 years, we have not lost 1 fish – which is absolutely amazing compared to our personal experiences of going back and forth to the fish store for new livestock on a very frequent basis. For our professional aquarium maintenance services from Seatech, Jimmie always communicates arrival times and uses what we consider a white-glove service – always with the utmost professional and attention to detail. Jimmie brings RODI water, all food supplies, nutrients and even hardware for the aquarium as needed. Once you contact Seatech Aquariums, you will immediately know you made the right decision and you can finally enjoy your aquarium investment and hobby for years to come.
