Discover over sixty tips and techniques, do-it-yourself projects, and videos on how to save time, save money or be more productive in the fish hobby.

This talk is an all-new compendium that builds upon Rick’s most popular talk, “Sixty Tips in Sixty Minutes”. Rick includes tips for cleaning, breeding, feeding, tech and more! Links and diagrams are included so you can try the tips, too!

At the end of the talk, you will be given a link to a concise PDF which you can print or view after the talk.
