Over thirty-five years ago, in a meet cute of romance movie proportions, I met a boy with blonde hair to the middle of his back, a penchant for skateboarding and a love for fish. At this time, I was running the fish department at Daryl’s Pet Shop, and he came in to sell me rare African cichlids, which he bred in astonishing numbers.
Eventually he moved on from breeding cichlid to aquarium maintenance, and for a while, I lost contact with him. A few years passed, and he dropped back by the shop again, to see if any of our customers needed someone to help keep their aquariums clean. By now I owned the shop, and I was happy to find help for some of my customers that simply didn’t have time in their daily schedules to work on their aquarium but loved the peace and serenity that the fish in it brought to their lives.
I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, that meet cute was my introduction to Eric Triplett, and this is how our journey in the aquatic world has come full circle. We are back to our roots. Now, in addition to ponds, we are breeding cichlids, and servicing aquariums once again.
This initial successful partnership foretold our future together as team, and soon enough, we were making babies together. More than anything, I wanted a beautiful backyard pond, and the journey Eric took to build me my dream pond, ended with him leaving the aquarium world. Instead, he took a path less known, building koi ponds. This of course, led to maintaining ponds, and here we are now full circle, as twenty-five years later, Eric is once more servicing aquariums.
