New DESIGN APPRENTICE

Gavin Dunaj

It was clear to me, after looking at the last few years sales figures, I’m in need of product design support to not only help meet current order demands but also to grow my business and strengthen my brand. These past few years have been a challenge, processing orders in a timely manor of 3-5 days.

And days later I’m approached by someone ‘out of the blue’ that I recognized but knew little about. He said he really liked my plant designs and wanted to work with me, helping design / create Aquarium and Reptile Plants & Decor.

I am happy to announce that I have taken on an apprentice, whom is certain to become a talented Design Assistant much sooner than anticipated. He has already shown many skills, has an awareness of current industry trends and I appreciate and admire his design aesthetic. I see great promise in him. His name is Gavin Dunaj.

Within just a few weeks he’s created and designed several new Aquarium Décor Pieces which feature either Resin or Natural Driftwood and some greenery. Two of his designs have already gone to market and one will go into production as part of our in-stock items (pre-made quantities, ready to sell). He has also secured a Consignment Order of 28 Plants & Decor from a new Seller in Mountaintop PA called O’FishShell. Our handcrafted artificial aquarium plant and decor items are now available there (limited varieties)!

I’m fortunate to have someone helping me now. Gavin’s fierce determination to learn, create, make and sell truly inspires me.

NEW DRIFTWOOD WITH GREENERY

In the upcoming weeks you can look for OUR new line of Driftwood w/Greenery Decor pieces called 1 Scape. Suitable for either an Aquarium or Reptile Habitat. To start off, the wood choices will vary in size from small to medium. Wood types will will seek out are Azalea Wood, Spider Wood, Tiger Wood, Mopani Wood, Manzanita Wood, Redmoor Wood, Sumatra Wood, and Malaysian Driftwood. We plan on adding L & XL wood pieces as the demand grows.

Hanging Reptile Plants Anchor Mount for Artificial Plants – Snake Snail Spider Terrarium Habitat

New Plant Design Add On Option

Hanging Reptile Plants Anchor

I’m happy to offer a new Attachment Element for the plant designs.

The Cable Tie Mount makes attaching the plant to wood or onto a background, easy! Sometimes a suction cup isn’t whats needed. This Mount will also hang from a standard sized suction cup hook if needed.

Once you’ve decided where you want to place the plant: just hold in place, wrap the cable tie around your branch / wire, then insert the cable tie through the openings of the mount piece. Insert Cable Tie into its locking portal. Pull on cable tie to tighten. Cut excess cable tie.

The manufactures adhesive backing strength is good, firm bond. When your plant(s) arrive, the cable mount will have already been securely attached to the back / bottom of the base. Cable tie included.

If you are buying these to use for some other use, please mention in your order that you do not want the adhesive cover removed. This is also assumed if any order only contains Cable Mounts and no plants.

New Miniature Artificial Greenery – Aquarium | Reptile Terrarium Plants

New Miniature Artificial Greenery - Aquarium - Reptile Terrarium Plants 1080 1920

Introducing the new

Miniature Artificial Greenery!

Finding mini sized artificial greenery isn’t so easy. The styles and variations out there are often too ‘cutesy’ and certainly wouldn’t compliment any aquarium reptile snake spider or beetle habitats.

The new designs are realistic in appearance and are perfect for those times when you need just a little greenery here and there! They are also a good size for mini terrariums used to house Jumping Spiders, Amphibians or Beetles. Most styles are versatile in use for either an aquatic environment or a reptile terrarium habitat.

There will be additional new styles added in the upcoming weeks.
