- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was introduced to Saltwater and Reef keeping back in 1986. I had been a freshwater hobbyists before that since I was 5 yrs old with my first Goldfish tank. Once I was introduced to the pond hobby in the late 80's that was it I was hooked! This is part of the reason I started to be more involved with aquatic business....forming our first company Lawson Aquatics in 1986 then Koi Depot of San Diego in 1989. Also served as President of San Diego Marine Aquarium Society for 2 years (1987-89) also joined Koi Club of San Diego. Over the years we become more involved with Koi Ponds and Water Gardens. Koi Depot of San Diego/Inland Empire has been great experience and meeting many great people. We have formed many great resources for providing and offering some of the best products for great prices.
