Group founder's feelings

More than two million years have past since man arrived on earth.
I believe until recent time...


The speed of every day life has been comparable to that of a 5km per hour walk, gently flowing like the Amazon River.

Today with the constant development of technology, our social system is bringing about a faster paced, less comfortable way of life. Our life's tempo has become so fast that it's as if we are flying through time. Unfortunately, our physical state cannot progress with technology, hence the unnatural speed and urgency leaves us with relentless stress.

To ease some of this stress, I feel there is a need to be as closely associated with nature as possible. In a sense, we can offer our contribution to our customers through natural, healthy life found in an aquarium.

The need for "stress relief" through successful aquarium keeping will only increase in the future. It has been our mission over the past 12 decades to provide products to help bring about this success and in the future we will remain focused on doing no less.
