LOS ANGELES - Sept. 18, 2021 - PRLog -- Wendell Escott, who happens to be the ONLY African American in the industry, is working hard to keep Aquatics alive during this pandemic. The aquarium service provider has been operating in the greater Los Angeles and South Bay areas for more than 27 years. As a professional aquarium services provider, Escott specializes in the care of saltwater, reef, freshwater tanks and ponds. He is known for his attention to detail and amazing customer service. His goal is to create a memorable experience for each client regardless of tank size. He treats each aquarium with ultimate care, as if it were his own. Customers can put their faith in his quality workmanship, quick installation time, and reliable follow-up maintenance inspections.

Wendell Escott has been in business since 1994; he opened his first pet store called Aqua Land in Carson, California. He kept it open for about one and half years but kept doing aquarium services even after he closed it down. In 2000, he bought a store once more but when 9/11 hit, sales were affected forcing him to sell the business for a second time. For close to fifteen years, he serviced eight to ten customers, but recently his clientele has quadrupled. He says that most of these businesses mainly come from Yelp reviews.

Wendell Escott made 10 episodes which he calls Aqua-Man documentaries on YouTube ( He encourages customers who are interested in installation, maintenance, and other services for their aquariums to watch the documentaries and get a gist of how he does his work. Escott says that the videos are primarily meant for educational purposes. "I enjoy educating people on how best to care for their aquarium. It is an exciting and fulfilling activity," says Escott adding that he has been in business for more than twenty-seven years because he loves what he does. His passion and love for aquarium service is evident from his videos and the way he enjoys himself while cleaning the aquarium makes everything fun and enjoyable.
