The professionals - Ioannis Paraschos "AQUATICA"


"AQUATICA" - 328 Vouliagmenis Ave., Athens 17342. Phone: 9918156 & 9955095. Fax: 9951033. E-mail: aquatica@acci.gr 

Picture on the left: Aquatica logo and Ioannis Paraschos - (the man who runs it). For those wondering, yes, I had my inspirations that day.. Aquatica was founded back in 1985 and it is now considered one of the leading companies in the fishy Greek market.

 

"There are no more true fish hobbyists in our days. Years ago there used to be more, far more. People who loved their pets, their fish. Yes, they realized their fish as their pet and they cared for it. In our days all they ask for is color. Give me color in my tank this is all they ask for". Those were the first words I exchanged with Ioannis (John) Paraschos, owner of Aquatica, the biggest and largest selling wholesaler in Greece. I knew Aquatica very well (most of the equipment I use in my tanks come from them) but I hadn't have the opportunity to meet Mr. Paraschos in person. Thanks to my visit in Zoophilia 2000, an exhibition held in Athens in mid October, I came to meet him.

 Some pictures from the booth of Aquatica during the Zoophilia 2000 trade exhibition.

From left to right: Wardley stand and Rena stand (above)

Left: Ioannis Paraschos (left in the picture) discussing technical matters with Vassilis Iliopoulos. Right: The PennPlax stand.

"I try to follow the advances in the hobby. Many times I import equipment that I know are too advanced or too expensive for the Greek market. What's worse, retailers will try to make the most profit out of them, the equipment is already expensive thus it becomes out of reach for the hobbyist".  

A list of the brands represented by Aquatica in Greece. As you can see very few big names are missing.

PENN PLAX RENA AQUARIUM PHARMACEUTICALS ARCADIA
WARDLEY AQUA MEDIC RAINBOW LIFEGARD AQUARIUM SYSTEMS
   SAN FRANCISCO BAY BRAND    


In the days to come a pictorial tour at Aquatica headquarters will be available in this section. With hundreds of tanks, thousands of fish and a 3.500 liter Malawi cichlid tank, I feel that all visitors of MCH will have something to look at.
