Aquarium Reef Illusions llc. STORY

Aquarium Reef Illusions llc. has an incredible story. The Founder of the company, Michael Aponte, always had a facination with water and its inhabitants. While he was a boy living in Puerto Rico, he was introduced to diving and the sea life! After falling in love with water and these amazing animals he quickly begged his parents for small aquarium. Starting with a small freshwater aquarium. After a move to Florida, during 11th grade, one of his friends setup a little 10 gallon SALTWATER aquarium. The itch for a saltwater aquarium quickly took over and he purchased a 30 gallon aquarium.


Needless to say, this was the beginning of a crazy turn of events. Michael began to work at a local petshop in the fish department as well as working at Disney World. During this time he developed the neccesary tools needed for aquarium care from the petshop and superior customer care from Disney. The love for creating saltwater habitats grew bigger and bigger. After highschool Michael went on to pursue a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a minor in Marine Biology. During his college years the company was founded (2001). Struggling between school work and trying to build a customer base, Michael made it work! Slowly but surely, the company kept growing by providing the best job possible in order to stay competitive! Starting to land big corporate jobs and VIP clients definitely made it worth while and helped the business grow.

In 2016 Aquarium Reef Illusions had become one of the largest aquarium maintenance companies in the state of florida, servicing over 150 aquariums a month and constantly building bigger and better  aquariums. The company has always focused on customer service and client satisfaction as a number one priority!

Currently in 2018, the company still continues to grow, keeping the crew and Mike bussier than ever!
