Experience

Who is Fish Geeks? Simply put, Fish Geeks is me…or at least, it started that way. I am a Professional Aquarist with experience at nationally renowned facilities such as the Shedd Aquarium (Chicago, IL) and the Minnesota Zoo (Apple Valley, MN). 

Expertise

As a Fish Geeks Aquarist, I am able to employ the knowledge I garnered at public aquariums and combine it with the experience I amassed working for several prominent local fish retailers/wholesalers, as well as what I learned as hobbyist myself. Using this knowledge, a bit of ambition, and a whole lot of work, I launched my own aquarium cleaning service in 2010.

Dedication

I’ve taken a lifelong passion and turned it into my career. When you choose Fish Geeks, you are choosing a level of enthusiasm and dedication to excellence that is unmatched by most in the industry.
