Education for people in the aquarium industry

First e-course Aquariology (in English) is online!

Pet shops and wholesalers seek for a professional training of their staff. The most important aspects of ‘the keeping of fish’ are explained with practical details with easy to understand language (no previous education necessary).

They want to make sure that the live stock is well taken care off and that they can provide a good service to the consumer (fish hobbyist).

Usually there is not much opportunity in our ornamental fish industry for the staff to get an adequate training that they can follow on their own time and speed.

This e-course Aquariology has been written by the professional trainer and fish biologist Dr. Gerald Bassleer.

COMMENTS FROM BREEDER & EXPORTER= First I want to tell you , that thanks to your advice we work now much more with health management of our filters! Now we have “happy fishes” – I can guarantee You at 100%!!! They become healthy, except Viral infection and fish MB!!! I think , we can’t save that ones! The other are OK, and we have already 5000 to 10000 new babies, so we will feel the difference after 1-2 months with much more succes & profit! Meanwhile we work with Microscope to detect the differences before disease and after treatment…..there are many good results!!! Thank You!!!
