Our Team

Richard & Sharon

Owner of Aquarium Village

My wife and I were special educators for over 70 years combined and we are still involved in education.

We never expected that we would ever be in the aquarium business but when we decided to go from hobbyist to business owners we wanted to create a place that would provide our customers with the best aquatic experience possible. Aquarium Village is a product of hard work, a huge learning curve and the hiring of knowledgeable and personable staff that share this vision.

Our goal for Aquarium Village is a simple one: treat every customer as we would want to be treated. We are committed to serving you and helping you to achieve your vision.

We have one of the widest and most diverse selections of fish, plants, corals and livestock available. We receive shipments 3-5 times a week from over 30 locations around the world. Our equipment and stock inventory is very extensive and if we do not have it, we can get it. Special orders of both livestock and equipment are our specialty. We will continue to have product seminars, guest speakers and product Reps to enhance your experience.

We look forward to seeing you again and again at Aquarium Village.


Peter Eiselman

Manager of Aquarium Village

We are very excited to have Peter as part of our staff. Peter has been a hobbyist since he was a young boy with his Grandfather for over 40 years and has worked in the industry for the last 15 years.

Peter started working for local stores. It didn’t take long for some of the major players in the game to see that Peter’s knowledge of livestock and equipment would be an asset to their companies. Peter was Northeast Sales Director for Red Sea & Carib Sea and for the entire East Coast for Hydor.

Peter worked with over 200 stores during these years but we are happy to say that he is now EXCLUSIVELY at Aquarium Village.

He is always happy to share his knowledge and insight. So come on in and discuss all your aquatic needs with Peter and the rest of the staff.



Associate of Aquarium Village

Long Island Andy, as he is known to many of his followers, is a great asset to Aquarium Village and to all the hobbyists that depend on his knowledge and candidness. You can always depend on Andy to share his extensive knowledge, his honesty and his time to make your aquatic experience the best it can be. Not only does Andy have over 40 years of experience in the hobby but he is also a Koi expert. Another great attribute of Andy is that if he doesn’t know about a piece of equipment or livestock, he will research it until he does. I am extremely happy to have him as our expert and more importantly, as my friend.



Associate of Aquarium Village

Jim is very passionate about all animals and his knowledge about many of these animals is impressive. Birds, turtles, snakes and, of course, fish are only some of the animals he can speak to anyone about. Jim’s knowledge of freshwater fish, plants, shrimps and other areas of fresh water along with his extensive knowledge of salt water makes him an extremely valuable employee. Jim gets great pleasure from sharing what he knows with people and his passion on these subjects ensures every customer the attention and benefits of his experience.
