Client Testimonials

I have always been an animal lover since I was a kid. One of my fascinations are marine fishes, but the onlyproblem is it is very hard to maintain them. I've tried a lot of times to have marine fishes only to be dismayed since the fishes do not last very long. I tried different methods and consulted different shops to no avail, until I got tired of the whole thing. When I first saw Mike Dizon's personal aquarium and its system, I was really awed by it. Given the assurance that the fishes would live long enough, I asked him to build me a 130 gallon tank for my office. Now, until more than six months, the marine tank is very healthy and alive with fishes which were there from the start.

I enjoyed our visit to your shop and must say yours is definitely the best retail facility I have seen in Manila.

This is my first time to have an aquarium of any sort in my house. At first I was hesitant, having heard stories of how complicated and difficult it is to maintain one. One day I chanced upon the Direct Aquatic shop along P.Guevarra and made some inquiries. It so happened, Mike Dizon the owner was there to explain to me the basics of having a fish tank. After our discussion, I felt that he is very knowledgeable, and so I decided to have a 180 gallon aquarium set up. Now I get to enjoy watching the different kind of fishes such as bat fish, banner fish, clown fish and various angel fishes swim around. It's not only relaxing but also entertaining because you get to see the different personalities of the fishes, it's quite amusing that they have them. After having dealt with Mike, for the past six months, I can say that he runs a very professional and hands-on operation. When I call him regarding problems with the fish or the aquarium, he makes a point to personally visit and work out a solution. Not only that, he's very open and willing to share his own experiences from which I've learned a lot. I am quite happy with his services. As far as I'm concerned, you can't ask for anything more. More success to you!!!

I have been into fish keeping since I was a kid but never did I saw any shop like Michael Dizon's "Direct Aquatic". The stuff inside the store are even more superior in quality compared to the one's I saw in the U.S. Yes, fishes have best quality compared to other Marine Aquarium shop but they are guaranteed to survive. No problem with Ich or any bacterial infection because they are quarantined for a long period of time (I would say 1- 6 months). The key to a successful marine aquarium is simple. Be contented with what your tank can hold (Number of fishes) and do not overfeed. These stuff, I've learned from Direct Aquatic and these made my fishes survive (healthy w/ beer belly). Happy Marine Fish Keeping.

We were one of the very first to visit Mike's shop early 2003. At that time we were already hooked into salt water fishes. Mike convinced us to invest in a 100 gallon tank and we became one of his earliest clients. The tank you see on the brochure is the result of Mike's creativity and ingenuity. Though it was heavy on our pockets, it is worth every peso spent. As a rule, we get all our fishes from Mike's place. It is quality, and one thing is for sure, THEY LIVE.

I've always wanted to have a marine fish tank for its color and beauty. But frustration was almost certain many times over. The longest period was a week of immortality then packing up for a freshwater set up comes next. Met people claiming to be gurus in marine fish aquarium, but to no avail. I get the same confusing and frustrating results, never getting to understand what and why it happened. Direct aquatic was admittedly one I planned to experiment expecting the same negative results. At first, I was hesitant of Mike's ( the store owner ) concept of fish keeping since I never had any clear understanding of what factors to consider. Store owners normally have the notion of just selling, plug this and that and the fishes will live.
My experience with Direct Aquatic was exceptional, by the time I stepped in the store, I asked myself why would this guy keep such number of livestock if they would just eventually die like my past experiences? Fishes don't really come cheap here but you could tell they're healthy and eating. I later met Mike and understood why now we can keep and appreciate the beauty of marine fish tanks at home. Mike knows what he's doing and personally monitors your tank's progress, you won't feel lost with this guy and the rest is up to you to understand, experience and enjoy! At last I got what I wanted "An aquarium with colorful fishes that live, and understanding why they are alive!" People who have seen my tank set up react with a big WOW and I always tell them yes, it works. Happy Marine Fish Keeping!

I have been a hobbyist for a quite long time, and i spent the last few years with saltwater fish, but it did not last for more than 2 months. having a saltwater fish tank is really a dream come true with direct aquatic because direct has a suitable setup design for fishes to live, not just for a short period of time. Also, it has a wide range of quality fishes in store.
