About Fishy Biz
Welcome! I'm Matt Priest, owner of Fishy Biz. I've been an Aquarist since I can remember. I bought my first aquarium when I was 13 and watched horrified as every single one of my poor fish passed away. I had no idea there was more to "fishkeeping" then simply keeping them.
I was always fascinated whenever I stepped foot into any pet shop or aquarium centre but I never thought in a million years that I'd own one myself. Yet here we are. I have my beautiful and incredibly loving fiancée Sylvie to thank for supporting this once crazy, romanticised dream of mine and my three year old son Levi for being my constant source of youthful, fearless imagination - Something we should all hold dear to us. We're here to help you realise your dreams too.. and to help you keep your fish longer than my thirteen year old self did!
Not only are we building an aquarium centre, we are building a community. This part of the business is not unexplored territory for me. I have previously owned a successful fitness centre with the same community focus. Having a sense of community unites us. Being a part of a community can make us feel as though we are a part of something greater than ourselves. It can give us opportunities to connect with people, to reach for our goals, and makes us feel safe and secure. It's important for every person to have a sense of community and that's what we're about.
That...and everything aquariums.
