I was inspired to create this website because of all the varying and often misleading information about fishkeeping, aquarium maintenance, and other branches of this hobby there is out there. I am trying to put together an archive of guides, care sheets, and other aquarium-related topics from my experiences, and the experiences of actual aquarium keepers all around the world.

I have spent countless years working with fish, amphibians, reptiles, and other little critters that can be kept in a glass/acrylic enclosure. I have worked at pet stores, taken marine biology classes, acquired a degree in Wildlife Ecology and Management, and have kept fresh & saltwater aquariums, terrariums, paludariums, and many other types of enclosures. Although I cannot guarantee the survival of any of your new aquatic friends, I will do my best to provide guides and information to help give them the best chance at survival.

I currently have a small 10-gallon saltwater reef tank, that I plan to upgrade shortly. This reef tank is planned to be dominated by zoanthids, because you can’t go wrong with the lush colorations. I also jumped into the brackish water paludarium scene, where I keep Fiddler Crabs, Endler’s Livebearers, and an assortment of nuisance snails (unfortunately). I am currently in the process of setting up a 40-gallon freshwater aquarium and converting my freshwater paludarium into a full-blown terrarium. You can learn more about all of this on my YouTube channel: ATParium.

I am the sole designer, developer, and content creator of this website. I am trying to build this up while also working a full-time job.
