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….
