Teri- Store Manager
Teri first worked for Gary at the "Pet Corral" in 1994. She managed the Pet Corral at South 1st and William Cannon from 1999-2004 so Gary could get the Aqua-Dome underway. The Corral was a full line pet store where Teri studied animals of all kinds as well as bred the amiable bearded dragon lizards and handraised 2 different species of macaw parrots. Teri now oversees all things freshwater at the Dome as well as being the general manager. She has 2 cats, a blue and gold macaw named Strider, and 2 aquariums.
Melissa- Worker Bee #1
Melissa is one of those crazy hobbyist that goes pedal to the metal into it. Not content with one or two aquariums, she has 8, along with Turtles, a Tortoise, a dog and a cat. It makes you wonder if she has any furniture! Melissa is also great at helping Gary figure out technical stuff like phones and computers, thus keeping his sanity.
While earning his BS in Advertising from the University of Texas at Austin, Hunter became an avid hobbyist, frequenting many local aquarium shops and sponging up fish knowledge. After working weekends for Gary from 2004-2008, Hunter began full time work at the Dome, centered on the marine livestock section. He tries his best to help customers keep these animals, some of which are among the most misunderstood in captivity. Learning to keep these creatures will be invaluable to medicine and science. With changing global climates, our success may prove crucial to these animals' very existence. Hunter currently keep 4 fish tanks at home along with his cat.
