Welcome To Smart Fish Keeper

Hi there, my name is Gunnar Kennedy and I’m a fish keeping enthusiast whos been in the hobby for over a decade now! My first fish tank was bought by my parents when I was 8 just because I got really excited about the idea of being an aquatic parent. And I was right, after my first few fishes, I was hooked and my parents took me to many trips to our local fish store. Here is an old photo of my first fish.

And up until a recent trip to my friends house, I wasn’t really into advanced fish tanks and stuck to the basics. But the night that I visited my friend, everything changed. In his room was the most sophisticated and colorful fish tank I’ve ever seen.

His tank had beautiful aquarium sand, a quiet filter, and even an automatic feeder! I marveled at his aquarium for hours.

This is when I realized my basic practices of fishkeeping were over, and I would make it my goal to build a tank like his.

Since then, I’ve started building many different types of tanks and along the way I’ve learnt valuable information I plan on sharing with you.

How I Create Content

All the content you will find on this site has been planned and edited by me to ensure we meet the highest quality standards. 

As much as possible I try to get my hands on the items mentioned in this blog to get real-life experience with them but it is not always possible so I also rely on extensive online feedback from real customers of these items.

I also spend a lot of time in my local stores and talk to their staff to get to know all the items that come out and which ones may be of interest to you.

All in all, I want this site to be a place you can trust and that is not rigged by brand sponsorship so you can use our information to make the best decisions for yourself when it comes to caring for your aquatic friends.
