…in my opinion, I think it can be easier for someone who has no aquarium experience to learn this business –  than it is for someone who already has their own aquarium.

Why? I sometimes have to change their way of thinking concerning aquariums.  They may already have their favorite fish or cleaning methods, but it can be a little different when you’re maintaining aquariums as a business.  At least to do it efficiently.

If you’re worried that you can’t do this because you have never owned an aquarium before…
rest assured that you can!

I will teach you how.


Plus, you’ll gain a new hobby in the process.

How did I get started in this business?


I had an aquarium for a couple of years in the early 90’s before I started working for a friend who had just began an aquarium maintenance business.  We both worked for Walmart and we would clean aquariums during our lunch break.  We only had 4 or 5 accounts back then but it would bring in a few hundred dollars each month.  I ended up buying the business from him a year later but it didn’t really go anywhere because I didn’t have much business experience.  I ended up just using it to fuel my aquarium hobby.

No one was there to teach me anything about it.  The internet was still just a novelty, so there was not any resources to learn from.  If fact, it took EIGHT years before I realized the potential of this business and learned how to grow it.

I did all of this by trial and error!  But I did it!  I figured out some of the most profitable ways to operate this business and come to find out…they’re also some of the simplest!  My business has grossed well over a million dollars* since then and has provided a good income for me and my family, plus I got to quit my job and spend a lot more time with them than if I would have stayed at my 9-5.

I understand what it’s like to be unsure about a new venture, but you can have confidence that this course will help you get started and give you the basic tools to succeed.

Whether you’re looking to just make a few extra dollars on the side or even grow it into a full time career, an Aquarium Maintenance Business can be a fun and interesting way to do just that!

Update December 2020:

The course is undergoing renovations and is temporarily unavailable.

I’m taking the opportunity during the pandemic to update the workshop & course to add more material, videos & marketing ideas and will be re-released in early 2021.

If you would like to be notified when the course opens back up, please sign up below.

If you do, I will give you a free copy of my eBook the Aquarium Maintenance Guide.

This is a book that I originally wrote a couple of decades ago and was sold in pet stores across the US.  I have since updated it and turned it into a digital PDF version.

In it, I cover topics such as:

  • How does an aquarium work?
  • Properly starting an aquarium
  • Cleaning your aquarium
  • Water testing and adjusting
  • Algae control
  • And more…

This is required reading for the course so you will be one step ahead.
