Anthony Calfo was born in Hawaii and lives in Pennsylvania. He is a lifelong aquarist and an aquarium industry professional that has worked the better part of the last decade as a commercial coral farmer and wholesaler, producing cultured reef invertebrates in a greenhouse environment for the ornamental and zoological trade. He has authored the reef aquarium titles, "Book of Coral Propagation, Volume 1" (ReadingTrees.com), "Reef Invertebrates", and articles for print and electronic journals at large. Anthony travels frequently to visit organizations and clubs to present information on the aquatic sciences. He co-founded the Pittsburgh Marine Aquarist Society with the inimitable Bob Dolan. Schooled at Carnegie-Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, he has a BA in English Literature.
Robert (Bob) Fenner has "lived" the science, hobby and business of aquatics in the Philippines, Japan and United States in all phases: collection, wholesale, jobber, retail, design, construction and maintenance. Academic experience includes eleven years of college, a couple of life science degrees and a teaching credential for chemistry, physics and biology. Published works include several studies on aquatic biological and chemical questions, and an extensive publishing and photographic background in the industry and hobby of aquatics. Today he is a world-renowned photographer, speaker and trade consultant eager to chat with, enlighten and be enlightened by anyone who shares a passion for life. Much of his time each day is dedicated to the free-content, educational site - wetwebmedia.com where he leads a goodwill crew writing articles and answering queries for fellow aquarists with the intent of improving the success of hobbyists and the quality of life for their charges.Review:
