Online Aquarium Supply Store Unveils Redesigned Education Section

MarineDepot.com, a Top 500 Internet Retailer, re-launched its online education section with new features, functionality and information for aquarium enthusiasts.

Sept. 7, 2010 - PRLog -- GARDEN GROVE, Calif. – Online aquarium supply store MarineDepot.com unveiled a redesigned section of its website this week that includes a host of new educational content, helpful tools and opportunities for social interaction.

“We’re extremely excited about the changes we’ve implemented,” said Mike Giove, chief operating officer of MarineDepot.com. “Our new and improved Education Center is a dynamic, web 2.0-friendly doorway into the aquarium hobby.”

To access MarineDepot.com’s Education Center, visitors to need only click the “Education” tab located at the top-center of the website: http://www.MarineDepot.com.  

Forum, blog and article postings are fed via RSS into the Education Center and updated daily so visitors can easily read the latest aquarium news and commentary. The company states that a species database teaches hobbyists everything they need to know to properly care for popular marine aquarium fish, invertebrate and coral. Fish aficionados can also learn how to acclimate their animals to ensure they live a long, healthy life.

“We know that the success of our customers’ tanks is paramount to the store’s success,” said Ken Wong, CEO of MarineDepot.com. “Providing our expertise to customers and giving them a forum to help each other is one of our strengths.”

Beyond a simple redesign, MarineDepot.com’s Education Center now features tools to help hobbyists plan and maintain their aquariums. Site visitors can use special aquarium calculators to determine how much water needs to circulate or how much medicine to dose. A sand bed calculator ensures hobbyists purchase the right amount of substrate for their desired sand bed depth. By plugging in the wattage of aquarium equipment—lights, pumps, filters, etc.—MarineDepot.com’s electrical calculator will reveal how much someone is likely to spend on electricity to run their aquarium system. A unit converter makes buying and setting up equipment easier since aquarium supply manufacturers list product specs in a variety of different units.

Allowing users to interact with the company and each other was also a primary goal with the Education Center overhaul. It is now easier than ever to comment, rate and share videos, articles and blog posts. Hobbyists can post questions online to the MarineDepot.com staff and they are answered publicly to help others who have similar questions. An aquarium club directory is another new addition that helps hobbyists locate their local chapter so they can further immersive themselves in all things aquarium.
