I'm fairly knowledgeable with low-tech, dirt-substrate planted tanks, aquatic ecology, and aquascaping backdrops. I also have a weird amount of expertise on Southeast Asian fish and plants.

I am a follower of Jesus, and I love music (especially Scottish and Irish traditional), hunting, primitive archery, trail running, my wife and daughter. Not necessarily in that order.

10 gallon Sumatran Rice Paddy Biotope with Betta imbellis, blue rasboras (Sundadanio goblinus), dwarf rasboras (Boraras maculatus), zipper loaches (Pangio cuneovirgata), and assorted edible inverts. I also get paid rather handsomely to manage a 150 gallon Rio Negro/Orinoco biotope tank for a local dentists office. Ain't life grand?
