Interview with Ted Judy of Ted’s Fishroom



This weekend, I had the opportunity to visit with Ted Judy of tedsfishroom.com.  Much of what I’ve learned about the logistics of setting up a fish room has come from his website, so it was a really awesome experience.  Not only does Ted help you set up your fish room through his helpful blog posts, but he also helps you stock it by importing and selling a wide variety of aquarium fish and plants.  Thank you Ted for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk to me for the first in what I hope will be a series of live interviews on Solid Gold!

I also must give a shoutout to Forest Lake Pets, a really cool local fish store that I didn’t know about until now.  They let us meet and film in their store, which housed rows upon rows of tanks full of neat-looking fish.  Maybe I’ll have to go back there sometime for a video tour… we’ll see!



After filming the interview at Forest Lake Pets, we headed over to the fishroom of Mike and Sue Fries (Minnesota Aquarium Society members) where Ted gave a super informative talk about West African Tetras. All in all, it was a great experience putting myself out there and meeting other local aquarium hobbyists, and I hope to do it more often. I hope you enjoy the interview with Ted and don’t forget to check out his website!
