A Special Welcome to Premium Aquatics



After years of providing great service and products, Premium Aquatics, located in Edinburgh, Indiana, is very well known to people in our hobby. But what most people don’t know,  is that Premium Aquatics was one of the first aquarium companies to open an e-commerce store in the United States.  Jason Frye, the owner/founder of Premium Aquatics tells us that he is almost 100% certain that they were the 1st online company to actually sell WYSIWYG corals online!  Over the years, they have expanded their product offerings with brands such as Royal Exclusiv, Tropic Eden, Reef Octopus, Ecotech Marine, and Aqua Illumination to name a few.

Prior to starting his business over twenty one years ago, Jason was involved in the printing and graphics arts business.  The consumer digital photography market did not yet exist but Jason could see the future approaching. Rather than sticking with the printing market,  Jason saw a unique opportunity to be a pioneer in the marine aquarium industry by offering WYSIWYG corals and other aquarium livestock online.

Jason used his expertise within the graphics arts field to photograph and edit (but not too much) corals to sell on his company’s website.  Twenty-one years later, Premium Aquatics has grown into one of the most respected and well recognized purveyor of all things aquarium and we are very pleased to have Jason and his company, Premium Aquatics,  as a sponsor.

Please join us in welcoming Premium Aquatics to AquaNerd family!
