Hi! I’m Marijke, but I usually go by Mari. I’m 22 and live in The Netherlands (so forgive the occasional silly spelling mistakes), where I study Communication Science. I got into fishkeeping way back in 2010 when I acquired my very first 5 gallon (19L) dwarf shrimp aquarium.
I first started blogging in 2011 and haven’t stopped since. Aquariadise was my first real website, but it was joined by the houseplant centered Houseplant Central in 2016. I love writing articles about fishkeeping and houseplants and hope to eventually make blogging for Aquariadise and Houseplant Central my full-time job. If you’d like to know more about me, Aquariadise or Houseplant Central, don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for visiting Aquariadise, I hope the site helps inspire you!
My name is Alison, and I’m a professional freelance writer.
I’ve been an avid fishkeeper since I was about 12 years old. I started off with a simple 10-gallon aquarium setup and two goldfish called Mister and Missus, although I never actually knew which was which!
For my 15th birthday, I was given a tropical fish setup, complete with tetras, guppies, and dwarf gouramis. I was hooked! To date, I’ve owned many different species of freshwater tropical fish, including cichlids, discus, and piranhas. I’ve also successfully raised numerous spawns of kribensis cichlids and bettas.
I’ve been keeping fish for over 35 years, and currently have two large freshwater tanks. In one tank I have two huge fancy goldfish who are almost ten years old and still looking as good as ever. In my other tank, I have a happy community of tiger barbs, green tiger barbs, Corydoras catfish, platys, and mollies.
When I’m not busy checking water quality, cleaning filters, or talking to my fish, (yes, I absolutely do!), you’ll find me reading about wildlife or writing teen pony novels.”
Jennifer Doll is a recent graduate from Eckerd College with a B.S. in Marine Science (Biology) and Music. She has always been fascinated by water and started keeping freshwater fish over 10 years ago.
Many failures and successes later, she transitioned into saltwater.
She currently has a 10 gallon reef tank, but eventually hopes to set up a planted freshwater tank as well.
