About this webinar

Water quality is the single biggest factor in the health of any aquatic species. Understanding how to set up and maintain an aquarium is an essential aspect of managing fish or other aquatic/semi-aquatic species we are presented with.

By the end of this talk you should be confident testing water, understanding the results and confident addressing any issues identified.

About our presenter

Tristan is the Unusual Pet and Wildlife Vet at Lort Smith in North Melbourne and currently the UPAV secretary.
