Boyd Enterprises was founded in 1962 by Dick Boyd, who had been working in aquarium stores since 1947 at the age of 17.
He had a love and passion for building and maintaining aquariums as a hobby. Through his constant experimentation to create his own filtration techniques, he developed the world renown Chemi-pure - the ORIGINAL ion filter medium!
In 1955, Dick Boyd along with three others founded the first Marine Aquarium Society in the United States. (FMAS - Florida Marine Aquarium Society - www.fmas1955.org)
In 1972, he and his wife Linda, moved into a house large enough so he could build his dream aquarium. It took two years, but by 1974 Mr. Boyd had constructed a 3,000 gallon aquarium that was home to various corals, fish and invertebrates.
By 1979 many of the living organisms and fish were spawning and reproducing within the aquarium, with no water changes for 5 years. Using one of the largest Eheim filters available at that time, and utilizing Chemi-pure as its only filter medium, he maintained his tank for 18 years. Within that time, the aquarium remained a clean and healthy marine environment with few water changes up until Mr. Boyd's passing in 1992.
