Joe Ferdenzi
History of the Hobby

A multifaceted aquarist, Joe has kept tropical fish for over four decades, and during this time has done extensive writing, breeding, showing, speaking and judging.  His skilled and articulate writing has been published locally as well as nationally, and he was awarded the high honor of Author of the Year by the Federation of American Aquarium Societies in 1994 and again in 1996.

Joe currently is maintaining 45 aquariums in his fishroom, ranging in size from 125 to 1.5 gallons, he has just about every type of fish imaginable.  His present focus is on African and South American Killies, Apistogramma species, and swordtails.
