About

Hi, my name’s Billy.

If you’re just coming across this website, let me explain.

When I was growing up, my Dad built freshwater aquariums. Pretty much my whole childhood he had them.

He started with a 10 gallon and worked his way up to a 150-gallon tank.

He even made his own little Koi pond in our front yard.

On top of all that, my family loves to be around water. Both my dad and I are lifelong surfers.

If you have your own aquarium, I think you can relate that being around water is soothing.

I was always amazed by the beautiful little world you could create.

This year I finally decided to buy my first aquarium. I wanted to keep it simple, so I bought a 5-gallon tank with a beta fish.

I’m already planning a bigger aquarium with some Dwarf Pea Puffers.

The goal is to learn as much as I can about maintaining an aquarium and then sharing my experience with you. The things I did wrong, the things I did right. And everything in-between.

What’s Next?

Well, I bought all my supplies for my first aquarium and am waiting for their arrival.

In the meantime, I want to do some research on aquarium brands… I’m going to dig deep and answer the following questions…

Who are these companies operated by?

What makes an aquarium good?

Does the price make a big difference?

I will link my research (still a work in progress). I don’t know what else to say, other than, I’m so excited.

The start of Aqua Shack begins!
