As an amateur aquarist Henry C. Schultz
III has been around aquariums for 20 years, 15 of which were
marine tanks. Credit goes to his father for getting him involved
in the hobby. It was a FO 55g aquarium with two clownfish
and a yellow tang. Early on it was more of a fascination,
but soon the fascination grew into a passion.
Now with 3 saltwater reef tanks, he has successfully bred
Banggai Cardinals, Orchid Dottybacks, Green-banded Gobies,
Red-Headed Gobies, and Banded Pipefish. More than anything,
Henry loves to see pairs of fish spawning in his tanks.
In 1996 Henry was introduced to the Internet and has since
volunteered countless hours on numerous Bulletin Boards. He
was a consultant to the Aqua Link web forum when he helped
co-found Reef Central in 1999. He remains an active participant
and moderator at Reef Central. Most recently, Henry has founded
the Central Illinois Marine Aquarists, a local reef club.
Henry resides with his wife and two snow bengals in Urbana,
Illinois. He spends his weekdays selling beer, wine, and liquor
wholesale so he can afford more reef tanks and scuba trips.
He spends his weekends floating down river on his boat, usually
dreaming of reefs.
Henry is available for questions at the
Care forum at Reef Central.
