about me

Welcome to Andy Aquariums!  If you’re like me, you love fish keeping (and if your significant other is like my spouse, others think your hobby borders on obsession!). 


I’m a life-long fish keeper who started keeping a reef a couple of years ago.  In that time, I’ve learned from my mistakes, realized what products work, what tools are useless and have learned so much about this incredible hobby.  I’m here to share with you what I have learned along the way, to help you achieve your fish goals and to learn together as we foster a fish-lover’s community.

One great thing about this hobby is that it never ceases to teach you new skills and sharpen your problem solving abilities.  Two years ago, I didn't even know how to use a hammer.  Two weeks ago, I hacked my BioCube, made my own sump, and automated water changes.  I’ll teach you how you can do the same!

I plan on posting reviews of products I’ve tried and loved (and products that I’ve hated).  I’ll also walk through the modifications I did to my first reef tank (including programing my reef with Amazon’s Alexa), starting a frag tank, setting up my kids’ SpongeBob themed fresh water tank, and walk you through my current project:  building a 40 gallon reef tank. 

Feel free to reach out with questions you have on your aquarium—if you’re wondering about it, others probably are too and we’ll try to address it.  To stay up-to-date on product reviews, tank builds and more, sign up for the email list and never miss a post!

Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint.  Just keep swimming!
