Joe Middleton

Joe has been keeping fish since before he could grow facial hair.  Now that he is in his 50s and everything sags a bit that statement carries some weight.  He has had a long association with many notorious fish people in the hobby.


This means nothing to most people.  His relationship with aquariums is best described as “friends without benefits.”  He has run several fish clubs – mostly imaginary ones but some real ones, too.  He has traveled to try to observe fish in the wild throughout North and Central America, but when he got into the water they all swam away, fearing for their lives.  You may want to do the same when he enters the room, or at least plug your nose.
