I am a devoted aquarist who has kept pet fish for over 70 years.
I was Head of the Mars Fishcare’s Aquacentre for 30 years, developing products such as Aquarian Fish Foods and Remedies, the Atlantis Range of aquarium equipment and accessories.
I also ran the Aquarian Advisory Service, answering hobbyists’ questions for many years. I have lectured world- wide to aquarist clubs and written
several books and numerous articles on the hobby. But now I am retired and wish to help beginners join me in what is the most fascinating and rewarding hobby in the world….
