Clint Hudon

Specialty: Saltwater Reef Aquariums and Technical Equipment

​Clint is from Kansas City and has been working with aquariums for more than 20 years. He was first interested by live coral and its interaction with the environment, but what he has really gotten hooked on is designing and installing advanced equipment that better simulates a natural ocean environment. Clint installs our most advanced filtration systems and is an excellent aquarium "plumber". His favorite type of coral is Acropora echinata a species of SPS coral with beautiful blue color and interesting growth pattern. His advice for aspiring aquarists? Pay attention to water chemistry because it is the center of success.

Jeff Ward

Specialty: Freshwater & Saltwater Aquariums

Jeff is from Olathe and has been a hobbyist for 30 years and a professional in the industry for 22 years. Jeff was first interested in aquariums because of a 55 gallon Angelfish tank at his Aunt's house. He truly enjoys helping clients get the most out of their aquariums which is why he recommends putting the tank in the room you spend the most time in so you can get the most enjoyment out of it. Jeff's favorite fish is the freshwater Discus which is a type of South American cichlid. He is a meticulous technician who will always care for your tank the right way!

Lance Thomas

Specialty: Saltwater Aquariums

Lance grew up in Illinois, and has been around aquariums for 30 years. Lance fell in love with fish at an early age in a pet store by his childhood home and now he enjoys being involved in an industry he is truly passionate about. His favorite part about being a maintenance technician is bringing joy to clients when they get a new aquarium set-up. Although you can't keep them in our aquariums- his favorite aquatic animal is the Loggerhead Sea Turtle. His advice for new aquarists is to always take your time, everything good takes time in an aquarium!
