Luke has had a long-standing interest in tropical fish-keeping and has a passion for aquatic landscaping and everything related to it. His business is located in Montreal and has a strong reputation for providing quality advice and services related to high-end tropical fish-keeping.
Luke grow up in SiChuang China, a province surrounded by mountains and rivers. He love’s everything in nature. Proof? Luke had 4 rabbits, 5 turtles, 1 cat, 2 dogs, 1 Chinchilla, 2 parrots and uncountable plants and fishes in his life. Six years ago, he became obsessed with planted aquariums. After trying everything he could such as growing plants on gravel, DIY lighting, seeking stones and driftwood in local forests, DIY CO2, and 5 hours research per day for over one year, Luke was finally able to create any aquascape he wanted. He has now built his own shop to share this hobby with all aquarists in Canada. It was a tough start, but so far Luke has helped more than 50 beginners to build their aquascaping from 0 and they are very happy about it. He hopes his presentation will help OVAS members too.
