The TropicalFishAquarist.com website has existed in one form or another since 1994 where the original site was created to follow the philosophy of the original Internet builders; where it was created as an information resource to help other tropical fish keepers with problems and information on the newest trends in the hobby.
It was also created to help solve the problems new aquarists often encounter when they are just starting out keeping their tropical fish in a brand new aquarium. During that time the site has been dedicated to solving the problems many young fish keepers must confront as they begin to understand the complexity and beauty of the underwater scene they have created in their own home.
The author and owner of this site has had over 55 years personally keeping tropical fish. He has kept the entire range of fish, spanning the goldfish all the way to some of the more difficult salt water specimens. In addition he has run pet stores and worked for over 30 years in the largest family owned pet manufacturers in both the sales and marketing departments. He has been instrumental in the introduction of many of the most popular aquarium product lines that have become the standard for a much more mature hobby than the wild wild west he encountered in the 1970’s.
