About The Algae Tank:
The Algae Tank is a place for me to dump all of my aquarium related shenanigans into a single place, from tank plans, tank builds, retrofits, DIY’s, reviews, and maybe even a video series or two!
I’ve been an avid aquarist for 31 years. From the age of 5, when I won my first goldfish at a street fair carnival game, my obsession grew. I’ve owned tanks from less than a gallon, to my largest at 180 gallons. I’ve helped maintain larger aquariums at a marine research center populated with local coastal fish. I’ve kept freshwater and saltwater, built reefs and planted tanks, and I still have a ton of things to learn.
I’m PADI scuba certified, and I’ve traveled from Europe to China, Hawaii to most of the islands in the Caribbean, and all across the US. For my real job, I work in the tech industry as an engineer, and on my off days, I play a photographer. I’m also a huge foodie, and basically, I try to enjoy life as much as possible.
