BankRI Team Appreciation Event - Build an Amphora

September 18, 2019

Everyone likes to be acknowledged for their hard work and dedication and that appreciation improves culture and team player satisfaction.


Our banking partner and client, BankRI, recently threw an amazing employee appreciation event in Something Fishy's showroom.  With 14 BankRI branches outfitted with beautiful Amphora centerpieces, BankRI wanted to give their team the opportunity to bring one home for themselves to enjoy.  

Team members arrived excited to build an Amphora based on their personal style and taste.  They got the opportunity to choose their own vase, substrate, floral decor and of course, their new Betta!  Chatting amongst the hundreds of fish and corals in our showroom, BankRI team members enjoyed beverages and lite fare while learning about the beautiful Siamese Fighting Fish they have been interacting with while at work every day.

The countdown has begun and #MACNA2019 is a mere 30 days away!  We are getting our presentations ready and ironing out our travel plans as some of our team makes their way to Orlando, Florida for this year's event.

With the theme being Aquaculture, our in-house Marine Biologists Billy Lake and Daniel Hosmer, offer up an exciting workshop, Fragging For The Future.

"We're excited to have the opportunity to promote sustainability and take the next steps in our Coral Reef Aquarium Fisheries Campaign along with Mystic Aquarium," said Dan.  "Our workshop at MACNA will teach coral lovers of all skill levels some tips and tricks for fragging and the importance of aquacultured corals.", added Billy. 

Our second workshop, "Run Your Business, Don't Let it Run You", will be presented by The Fish Guy himself, Kurt Harrington!  Kurt has made it his life's work building Something Fishy from a goldfish bowl at the age of 8 to a successful business.  It's the only job The Fish Guy has ever had!

"Our team at Something Fishy has built a recipe for success that allows work/life balance while running a business. We are passionate about sharing our experience with the industry so that we all grow together."

Every year MACNA never disappoints, bringing together the industry's experts, hobbyists, enthusiasts, and business owners.  We may be a little biased but we think this year is going to be the best show to date.  Stay tuned to see Billy, Dan, and The Fish Guy's adventures at MACNA!
