Scott Hieber, Contributing Author
Scott Hieber has kept aquaria since he was 11 years old, “back in the metal frame days.” He has since turned solely to planted tanks, maintaining about a dozen at his home and workplace. In his enjoyment of living aquaria, he balances his penchant for simple, easy-to-maintain setups with a lifelong interest in things electric and mechanical. He serves on the Board of the Aquatic Gardeners Association. He has traveled to the Amazon to see tropical fish and aquatic plants in their natural environs. Originally from southern California, Scott now resides near the New Jersey central coast. He says he went east “for the weather.”
