Length of time fishkeeping:

14 years, I found an old aquarium in the shed and decided to set it up for some Goldfish.

Types of fish kept:

I currently have a large Fancy Goldfish set-up housing Tri-colour Oranda and ‘Grade A’ Black & White Oranda. I also have a pico reef, dedicated to Acanthastrea + Discosoma

Professional qualifications/ experience:

I have been in the industry since 2010 in that time I have gained experience in ordering freshwater + marine fish, dealing with a variety of equipment and rectifying issues with fish health/ water chemistry.

Specialist Knowledge:

  • Tropical freshwater
  • Goldfish
  • Planted tanks
  • Biotopes
  • Fish health/ Water chemistry

Best fishkeeping success:

Breeding various cichlids, such as Gymogeophagus balzanii, Discus, Geophagus tapajos ‘Red head’, Vieja synspila, Severums and Nannacara anomala.

Best fishkeeping tip:

Keep everything you need and don’t get caught short. A net, spare heater, test strips, medications and tap water conditioner are essential bits of kit that you should never be without.

If money/ time was no object, which species would you most like to keep?

Either Retroculus xinguensis or Cichla temensis. I’ll get round to keeping both some day!
