Pond Orbis , is a brand of ShopFusion Ltd, which was founded in 2011 by Alan Ng and myself Will Henbury with help from my son Karl.
My interest in fish keeping started as a teenager with tropical fish, especially the South American cichlids. As soon as I was in a position to do so, i.e., live in a house of my own, I quickly dug a large whole in the ground and made my first pond. To this day I still have a pond, but probably somewhat larger than my original.
Prior to Pond Orbis and ShopFusion, I was involved in launching and running one of my now competitors online retail projects. This was highly successful and is still a thriving online business to this day. Previous to this I was a company project analyst which came about after I had to quickly forget about becoming the next up and coming rock drummer and instead enrol into University – aged 30 – didn’t give up the drumming career as quickly as I should.
When we launched ShopFusion our main intention was to stock the best quality pond and aquarium goods possible and sell them at the lowest prices. You only have to go back perhaps a decade or less to find that you would be paying 2 to 3 times as much for a pond pump or filter as you pay now. I think we’ve helped bring the pond market from a rich man, or woman’s, hobby to a mainstream hobby affordable to the many. This philosophy has also helped bring down the price for aquarium goods.
