Premier Aquarium Service was founded in 1998, but the interest started well before that. Founder Michael Maki was fascinated by fish and nature from an early age and had his first aquarium before the age of 3. In 1987, he started working for the largest fish store in the Twin Cities, and stayed there throughout college and for five years after graduating college with a business degree.
Gaining experience in all aspects of the aquarium industry, Michael learned that not only were the livestock and aquarium systems important, but also the relationship developed with clients when caring for their aquatic pets. Out of this passion and value, Premier Aquarium Service was formed.
