I'm Dr. Charlie and I've been keeping fish and coral
for 40 years. I became a veterinarian to help save the ocean through aquarium science.
I work with hobbyists, pond owners, public aquariums, pet stores, aquarium service companies, fish wholesalers, collectors, teachers, and other veterinarians.
Aquaveterinarian offers a variety of personal guides full of perspectives and opinions I have accumulated from years of communicating with people about aquariums. My hope is to educate in simple terms but to a high level. I want it to be easy to understand complex aquarium science concepts. Please give me feedback on what I should add or clarify if you'd like to see or understand something better.
With my help, we can use microscopic examination and drug therapy to solve problems regular aquarium experts usually cannot accomodate.
I can help you with advanced chemistry, computerized controllers, sterilizers, and automation.
I like to use aquatic animal physiology, fish psychology, and biological control to make your life and your animals lives less stressful, easier, and better.
