Art in Motion started with a seminar on saving money on taxes in 1991. Owners Mike and Melissa decided to start a small business to get a better tax return, but little did they know at the time that it would turn into something much bigger. Mike thought leasing aquariums in his spare time, in addition to the enjoying the large 110-gallon one in his office, would be a great idea. Thus, the name “Art in Motion.” In addition to carrying aquariums and other fish related products, Art in Motion also has a large variety of dog, cat, reptile, small animal and bird supplies. The store also offers grooming as well!
