Livestocking Pico, Nano, Mini-Reefs; Small Marine Aquariums free pdf Greetings- here you will be introduced to a myriad of organisms suitable for keeping in small (forty gallons and less) marine systems- with pertinent critical notes on their selection, introduction and care. It is my earnest hope/desire that you be successful- and my further fervent belief that after a life time well-spent in the field that you will learn sufficiently through this exposure to be so. Sorting through all that's offered, available in the ornamental marine livestock trade is a daunting task- and one fraught with dangers... Many, most of the life offered is not "mix-able"- too much of it is unsuitable for small aquarium use. Not to worry! There's still a huge assemblage of biota to discover, enjoy for you to choose from (or be chosen).

About Robert Fenner

The diversity of life has always fascinated me- but the systematics of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians was blown away by the expansiveness and degree of unknown of the fishes. Few people had "companion animals" overseas, but many friends had bowls and aquariums with goldfish, guppies and other tropicals. I was born in Rhode Island, the smallest State of the U.S. but grew up in the orient as my father was career military. We had very few jobs "on base" for the "dependents" but I was fortunate to secure employment at a fish store that was associated with a restaurant in downtown Sasebo. Other vainglorious work overseas includes two years working for a Betta culture business, collecting and processing marines in Manila. Back to the U.S. in the late sixties I stuck to the trade as a retail clerk, a livestock wholesale worker (for Pratt's in San Diego), and eventually formed an aquarium service business with a school friend. This business cycled larger and smaller, and supported me all through college and beyond. It eventually became an employee-owned corporation with aquaristic retail outlets, fabrication (principally large acrylic systems), water feature construction, manufacturing and distribution divisions. Subsequent to the tax law changes, water-shortage "scare," and general decline in the California and U.S. economy in the late eighties these businesses were sold and liquidated. I worked for three years as a consultant and buyer for the mass-merchandiser PetCo in their bid to upgrade their stores, incorporating livestock. Is there a difference between what you do for money and for a living? Not me. Nowadays I write articles and books for the diving/underwater natural history and ornamental aquatics interests, and manage my rentals and securities. I browse the electronic bulletin boards to "chat" with others daily, and often travel, to go "hashing" (sort of running), writing and photographing with friends around the world.
