Project Description

April 15, 2023 | Chris Biggs

Believed to have been hatched from the permafrost of the barren Canadian Tundra hails the man know simply as Biggs. He is a devoted father of four, and court jester to his ever tolerant wife, Dayna.

A life-long aquarist, his father thrust him into the hobby at a very young age with a small tank they kept in their family den and he has never looked back. He is a founding member of the Aquarium Society of Winnipeg, the Canadian Cichlid Association, as well as the Dead Fish Order. He achieved in short order the level of Grand Master for both fish breeding and horticulture. He is a classically trained Botanist, passionate naturalist and avid gardener.

Chris has traveled extensively, collecting, studying fishes, plants, reptiles and invertebrates in their natural habitats, as well as attending workshops and conventions the world over. He shares his vast knowledge, adventures and experience through his lectures as well as his YouTube Channel “The Mad Aquarist.” His frank bravado and charm, as well as his experience make him a much sought after speaker, judge and auctioneer at events everywhere. Eager to share and educate, he is a welcome presence nationally and internationally.
