  • A third-generation fish keeper and a graduate in animal welfare and behavior.
  • Over 25 years of experience fishkeeping with salt and freshwater tanks.


Robert has loved fish since he was a small child. His first experience with fish was when, as a young child, he visited his uncle who had a 100-gallon saltwater aquarium. Since seeing his uncle's tank, he decided he wanted to keep his own fish and started with a small freshwater tank at the age of four.

Since then, his love for fish has continued to grow, and now, he keeps four tanks with a range of fresh and saltwater fish. He now runs FishKeeping World where he shares his fishkeeping adventures.
