About a week ago it came to our attention that there was some major reshuffling over at JBJ, makers of a wide range of foreign made aquarium products. While we wondered about what JBJ was going to do with itself moving forward, it seems that Manny Mandalia and some other former salespeople for JBJ have formed a new company called Innovative Marine. The new aquarium product company is planning to release a range of sleek all-in-one aquariums in the nano and medium size range, with matching stands and a few different LED lights. Innovative Marine has reserved a url for their new website, and is expecting to begin shipping products by the end of the month.
Jake Adams has been an avid marine aquarist since the mid 90s and has worked in the retail side of the marine aquarium trade for more than ten years. He has a bachelor’s degree in Marine Science and has been the managing editor of ReefBuilders.com since 2008. Jake is interested in every facet of the marine aquarium hobby from the concepts to the technology, rare fish to exotic corals, and his interests are well documented through a very prolific career of speaking to reef clubs and marine aquarium events, and writing articles for aquarium publications across the globe. His primary interest is in corals which Jake pursues in the aquarium hobby as well as diving the coral reefs of the world.
