DrTim’s Aquatics is the merging of the twin passions of the founder: fishkeeping and science. We make setting-up and maintaining an aquarium easy by sharing practical advice and proven products developed through years of experience and our own real science.
DrTim got his first aquarium at age 6 after killing two goldfish he had won at a school fair. Responding to the pleas of help his uncle brought over an extra tank from his dentist office and showed DrTim the basics (DrTim still has that aquarium!). In not too many years, with the garage full of aquariums and visions from The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau in his head, DrTim was determined to become a marine biologist. Possessing a major amount of curiosity and a love of reading, plus mentoring from some teachers, science came easy. Obtaining advanced degrees in the science of keeping fish was just the logical result of a boy’s dreams.
Our products are developed from that dream with a simple goal – make fishkeeping easy. You don’t need to be a biologist or chemist – we’ve got that covered. You don’t have to make mistakes – we’ve made hundreds so learn from us. Just have a little patience. There’s no magic or secrets – we’ve done the research and produced the products. Now we are happy to guide you to success with your tank no matter your level: beginner or expert we’re here for you. We encourage you to ask questions; to be curious; but most of all to enjoy.
