Because it makes everyone happy. It is a great fitness activity that makes you feel good and beautiful in your skin.

How long have you been using a Mermaid Tail?
I got my first mermaid tail for Christmas 2015. I started with a fabric tail but I quickly got a silicone tail when I started my mermaid business. My silicone tail was custom made with a dark red to look like a beta fish. My favorite brand is my company called Aquamermaid. Aquamermaid tails are beautiful, resistant and you can get one between 1 to 3 months compare to other brands it takes over a year to get it. They also have sequin tails!

People can learn many swimming and breath-holding techniques. I like to teach people how to run a mermaid business including personal branding, marketing, finance, proper equipment, and safety.
