About Me

Hi my name is Rick. I have always loved fish. As a child, I’d visit my cousins and see their 75-gallon saltwater tank with beautiful fish and live corrals and I could just watch them forever.

Several years ago, my wife and I decided we wanted to get fish of our own. We started with a 20-gallon freshwater tank with some neon tetras, mollies, a few ghost shrimp and some nerite snails. We later added some beautiful guppies, dwarf gouramis, platies, and even an aquatic frog.

Later, we decided we loved it so much that we upgraded to a 55-gallon tank which fits our room very nicely. We’ve been learning everywhere we can, including from some good friends with a much larger tank, and have been honing in on our skills to keep our fish ecosystem healthy, clean, and beautiful.

Over the years we have experienced first-hand various issues that arise from slight imbalances in the water as well as various sicknesses that fish can contract and what you can do about them. It’s been an amazing learning experience and I’m excited to share with you all that I have learned to help you set up and keep a healthy fish tank.

My hope is to remove the barriers that might keep you from truly enjoying all that fish have to offer.
