David E Boruchowitz, best known in the aquarium field as the former editor of Tropical Fish Hobbyist magazine, has been an aquarist and commercial fish breeder for nearly half a century. During that time he has become a student of not only tropical fish themselves but also all of the aquaristic systems and equipment that have evolved over the years. David has worked tirelessly through his books, magazine articles and lectures to make sure that beginners are put onto the right track.
