“I have had fish tanks of some kind since my first tank in 1988, I used to breed crayfish thatYour local aquarium store I caught in the local creek.

I also had a tank with a sleepy cod, also from the same creek. My childhood was spent digging for worms to feed it, I even had it eating from out of my hands.  It even used to jump from the tank to catch the worms I was feeding it.  Amazingly it somehow always landed back in the tank.

I’ve been in the industry in some form or another since 1999.  Whether in a be working in a laboratory studying substrate ecology or working part time in fish shops.

My favorite fish is the Pyramid Butterflyfish.  I love the way they glide around the tank and the way their colours stand out. My favorite coral is harder question to answer, however, as I don’t want to be predictable. The Scrolling Montipora is a favourite as it has a great growth habit.  Especially when you have several different colours grown together, there’s nothing better than that.

Not many people realise that I once had a starring role in the hit Australian television show “Border Security”, and no, I was not the guy trying to smuggle rare coral.  It was actually shot during my time working with Australian customs.”
