KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, March 21 (Bernama) -- TankQ.my is recognised by the Malaysia Book of Records as the first to offer a 'Portable Resilient Tank' which is Malaysia's first portable, durable and affordable aquarium for homes and offices.
Owned by a young entrepreneur, John Wong, who had taken the bold step in venturing into providing aquariums with laminated-tempered glass, which is not easily breakable. "I see this as a specialty item, which although can be a little bit more pricy but is more durable and it will withstand for a couple years more than any other regular aquariums out there currently available in the market," claims Wong. "I came up with this idea as there are often cases of either children or adults, unknowingly knocking onto aquariums, thus, breaking the glass panel."
