Hey, fellow fish enthusiast 👋, I’m Paul and I’ve been hooked on keeping aquariums since I won my first Goldfish ‘Moby’ at the fair when I was 8 years old.

I wanted to look after my new buddy as best I could, and not find him belly up after a couple of weeks, so I spent all of my allowance buying every Goldfish care guidebook available at the time.

This was in the days before the internet had the huge wealth of information it has available now (I’m really giving my age away here). I’ve always been a bit of a geek and like to know as much as possible about things I’m interested in, some would say I get a bit obsessed!

With everything I learned, I managed to keep Moby until he reached the ripe old age of 15 before he departed to fish heaven.

About To Go Snorkeling

I’m a truck driver by day and a fishkeeper/blog writer by night! I find keeping aquariums super relaxing and can sit and watch them for ages as the world goes by (…or until my Wife gives me a list of chores to do!!). I also love to go snorkeling whenever I can and discover as many new fish as possible, even though I was scared as a child by the opening scenes in Jaws!
