This week we took a run with the red dragon to find out the latest CO2 Artist.
Ritchie Newell has been around aquariums since he was five years old. It all started with his grandad's aquarium with Ritchie's first tank being a goldfish bowl housing a goldfish he won at the fair.
Since then Ritchie has kept all kinds of fish and eventually specializing in Discus fish which was when he was first introduced to live aquatic plants and aquascaping.
Back then Ritchie didn't know much about aquascaping so it took a lot of research to get things right. Naturally, this led Ritchie to discover Takashi Amano and it didn't take him long to develop a love for the nature aquarium. Unfortunately, His aquarium failed and he took a break from the hobby. It wasn't until his friends opened a new aquatics shop that was focussed on aquascaping that he decided to give aquascaping his full attention. He quickly invested in all the equipment, researched even more and began to create his first serious aquascaped aquariums.
Recently Ritchie has started his own company called Aquaman Complete Aquarium Services South Wales. This has made way for his creativity to grow and develop even further. Ritchie has been primarily focused in low tech aquascapes but is ready now to make the switch to the full powered hi-tech setups which is why we are delighted to get behind him and support him through the next stage in his aquascaping journey.
