AquaTouch was founded over 19 years ago with
a clear vision to provide leading edge technology, husbandry and
aquarium skills for the serious hobbyist and aquarium owner.
Our dedication to the hobby is unmatched and we strive to
provide practical advice and information to all aquarium owners.
Since our founding, we focused on acquiring qualified staff that
share our passion for the hobby. In most cases our
employees have had previous aquatic experience from their own
aquariums or from previous retail or aquarium service
employment. We purposely rely on a relatively small staff
to assure that we all have a consistent approach to aquarium
keeping and maintain strong client relationships.
Michael has been a
saltwater aquarium hobbyist since 1994 and a
professional aquarist with AquaTouch since 1997.
He is a certified SCUBA diver, member of the
International Society for Reef Studies, and has
published a variety of articles in scientific journals,
aquarium magazines, and books. Michael has given
lectures at international conferences and studied coral
reef fauna on research dives in
Australia, Palau, China, India,
Cook Islands, Thailand, Egypt, The Maldives, Malaysia, Israel, Jordan,
the Yucatan, and Indonesia. Michael specializes in
soft coral taxonomy and microanatomy.
