How wonderful to share a thread with you, Chris :P . We at Aquapetz, and the aquarists in Delhi, are huge fans of all you top notch aquatic experts that have helped our hobby make a splash.. i have pics of oliver knott's tanks going back 4 years, and i never saw prettier white cloud mountain minnnows in my life than his :D

I have a question: How did you start your journey as a serious aquatic plant and animal enthusiast? From a musician, how did you end up touring different countries and collecting authentic first hand information that you were able then to share with mainstream aquarists? Was it a serious of lucky co-incidences, did u have a wide social circle of fish hobbyist friends?

best wishes, Romi

Hello Romi,

i guess it is in my genes. My father was a veterinary and i got in contact with animals very soon. We had a ranch with lots of animals. When i was 5 i went fishing and it was exciting to catch fish...i never eat them ..i put them in the aquarium and looked at them for hours. i could spend 4-5 hours just looking at them. Parallel i started to make music with 6 or 7. The good thing while i was touring with my bands i always could escape of the tour for a couple of hours to check the area around. I did that during tours in the USA,Mexico,Australia,and Southamerica. During the day while the others spend time in Hotels and in pools i rented a car and went collecting and photograph habitats ;-). My Band thought that i am a bit strange going to look at rivers and lakes. Sometimes i had a little Aquarium on tour with me.

Cheers
Chris

Agree to you. Every one have an exciting story "How he fall in love with aquariums"
