Heras also is the owner of another aquarium retail business established around the late eighties in Sonoma County California when he was merely twenty-one years old. Today, Fish Pros has been up and running successfully for the past seven years, being one of the largest independently owned aquarium stores in the state of Texas.
Fish Pros has a knowledgeable staff ranging from a marine biologist to a college professor with over twenty years of experience, to Heras’ own family. The employees are experienced in different specialties from pond, tank and reptile care to equipment repair. Questions or concerns will be well resolved in the hands of our professionals.
