Id love to share my weird, adventurous, satisfying and at times, incredibly frustrating journey of my business ‘Hunky-Dory Aquatics’, also known as my second girlfriend. My name is Vinnie and probably like yourself, have an ultimate passion for the Aquarium Hobby. I have had many aquariums over the years and currently run a 6ft Freshwater South American Tank. My best friend Bruno lives in there, a longfin tiger Oscar whom I’ve had for 6 years. We were much closer before I introduced him to Sonia, his sole mate, a red/tiger female Oscar. I have had many fish over the years but am in love with characteristics and personality of the American Cichlid!
Is this my primary income? Hell no, funny enough I’m in construction and work 50+ hours a week. Lucky enough the $ isn’t to bad either, so why do I spend 5+ hours a day for the last 5 months setting up this business? How do I know it will succeed? Well I do not! But I’m willing to have a crack because that’s what I do. Before entering this e-commerce scene, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, some may say I still don’t. I guess I was sick and tired of buying from overseas competition and I’m sure you are to. There must be a better way, there has to be a way us Aussies can do more for the scene. Well, why not test the international market with our own brand?
Whether you support the notion or you do not, I appreciate you landing on my page and having a read of my intro. Please read on for a continuation blog.
