About Yourself: I've been in the hobby for almost 15 years now. I got into the business about 7 years ago cleaning fish tanks for a local fish store while going to school to get my marine biology degree. After I got out of school, I became the Marine Curator of the World Aquarium in St. Louis, Where I only stayed for 1 year before opening up my own aquarium maintenance business called Pristine Aquatics.
