About Us

How Marine Depot started and how
much we have grown.

Marine Depot was started in 1998 by a self-professed reef geek and premed student Ken Wong. Ken envisioned a one-stop shop where customers could find everything they needed, from technical product specifications, reef aquarium information, expert advice on the hobby and friendly one-on-one customer support. Having grown from a one-man crew to being one of the world’s largest suppliers of reef and marine aquarium products, this very core philosophy still lives strong in the Marine Depot culture 22 years later.

Our passion for the hobby.

Every member of our customer service team and many of our support staff are passionate aquarium enthusiasts. This ensures that our merchandise is "hobby-certified" by true fish and reef aficionados. We get as excited as you do in the latest industry trends and innovations. We also enjoy sharing this passion with you.

We are happy to help.

Unlike most, we believe that the support we provide to you after the purchase is just as important as the questions we answer for you before the purchase.

We strive to continue to be the ‘go-to’ store for all of your aquarium needs. From the support of fellow aquarium hobbyists, we have grown to be the best and one of the biggest in the past 22 years.
