He started with a small tank and was immediately hooked when he saw crystal red shrimpOpens in a new tab. for the first time. This led him to start a YouTube channel called Marks Shrimp Tanks, which now has over 60,000 subscribers.

His passion for shrimp keeping and desire to help others led him to start a Facebook group called Aquarium Shrimp Keeping, which now has over 40,000 members and continues to grow.

To provide even more value to the shrimp keeping community, Mark created, a blog that features original, informative content about all aspects of shrimp keeping. Mark’s decades of experience and expertise in the field make him a trusted source of information for shrimp enthusiasts worldwide.
