Our Story

AQUAtechniques is the result of the long-held childhood dream, of owner Simon Flood.

Simon’s passion for fish started as a young child when his parents treated the family to a small tank with two resident goldfish.  Longing for a tropical freshwater aquarium, Simon regularly maxed out his library borrowing allowance on books about tropical fish.  Despite the fact that a tropical aquarium topped his birthday and Christmas list year after year, his parents believed his interest would wane.  But Simon’s obsession was here to stay and by age 10, he visualised creating a business and even had the idea for the name ‘AQUAtechniques’.  Finally his parents succumbed and gifted Simon his first tropical tank for his 13th birthday.

His interest and passion continued to grow and after gaining qualifications in aquatics and ornamental fish at college, Simon eventually brought his childhood dream to fruition and launched AQUAtechniques in 1997 aged 24.

The business has now grown to 9 team members and is always expanding, due in part to the commitment to a quality service, as well as the passion that we all have for what we do.

“I have been using Simon and his company for over 15 years now and I could not ask for better service. A great relationship has formed from starting with a small 75L freshwater aquarium and gradually succumbing to the hobby and moving up to a 700L saltwater reef. Thank you for all the support, knowledge and time Simon.”
“Luke maintains my aquarium on a weekly basis and he is always friendly, on time and very professional in his manner. His fish and coral knowledge is amazing and I look forward to his visits and I am sure the fish do too!”
“The team looks after my aquarium and they is always happy to chat with me, whether it is about new ideas or concerns I have with the fish. My mind is always put at ease and I feel as though they take care of my aquarium as if it were there own, you could not ask for more.”
“It is great to find a business that is large enough to handle problems should they spring up, but also small enough that you have the personal touch and feel that they truly care about the fish. Couldn’t be happier.”
“We moved to Glassbox Trading from another company about a year ago and wished we had done it years ago! Always professional and everyone we have spoken to is polite and knowledgeable.
