Mr. Saltwater Tank



VIP On-Site Tank Building

It’s no secret that I fly across the country every year to help saltwater tank hobbyists build their tanks. This is a VIP service and experience, and it’s something I truly love doing. If you have ever considered having your saltwater tank built from the ground up, contact me for details and availability using the link at the bottom of this page.


Virtual Tank Building Program

This program is perfect for the hobbyist who cannot afford my VIP On-Site Tank Building service. This is the DIY option! Over a period of 10 weeks, I walk you through building your saltwater tank from the ground up. For more details on this program, visit this page.

Private Consulting

Some of my favorite work is one-on-one with people like you who are looking for more personal attention and tank-specific recommendations. I started doing this kind of work in 2011 and I’ve learned a TON along the way. Below is a list of the various services I offer. If there is something you are interested in that is not on this list, please tell me about it by submitting the form at the bottom of this page. If I’m not the right person for the job, I will send you to the person who is.


Troubleshoot Your “Problem Tank”

Anyone who has been in this hobby for any length of time has more than likely dealt with problems. Algae that won’t go away, fish that keep dying, water chemistry that just isn’t working, etc. I am called upon regularly to diagnose problems like these and help solve them. And I’ve seen just about every problem there is. If you are having an issue with your tank, tell me about it by submitting the form at the bottom of this page.


Spec Out Your Saltwater Tank from a Distance

Let’s be honest…you might not have the wallet to hire a high end saltwater tank builder to build your tank. At the same time, you want some specific, personalized advice on building it yourself. No problem. I spec out saltwater tanks from a distance every single week. We can talk about tank size, gear you should get and how to set things up right from the start. You don’t have to fly me in to get my advice. If you’re interested in this personalized and affordable option for building your saltwater tank, contact me using the form at the bottom of this page.


Get Personalized Gear Recommendations

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. The conflicting opinions and advice you’re getting on fish forums is rarely the right advice for your specific situation. Not all gear is worth buying. And more importantly, not all gear is worth buying now. There is a time and a place for a gear purchase. There is also the right gear for YOUR saltwater tank. When you work with me, I find out what you want your tank to look like two years from now, and that drives most (if not all) my gear recommendations. If you’re tired of confusing yourself with random fish forum advice when it comes to purchasing new gear, contact me using the form at the bottom of this page.


Get Personalized Tank Upgrade Recommendations

Upgrading is the real fun of this hobby, in my opinion. It’s also one of the more challenging things to do. When should you upgrade? What should you upgrade first, second, third…and beyond? I field these kinds of questions on a daily basis. If you are considering upgrading your tank this year and you want specific advice about how to go about doing that, contact me using the form below.
