Joe Theisen has always had a passion for aquariums, having had them growing up. Encouraged by his local hobbyist friends, in 2016 Joe made the decision to get some neocaridina and began researching the shrimp side of the hobby further. This began his addiction and since then, he has multiplied his collection of shrimp varieties, to include caridina. In 2017, Joe reached his goal by winning a category in our very own shrimp contest. His new goal, is to help educate others about breeding shrimp properly, as well as sharing his passion for the hobby. Joe is on the board for the MN Aquatic Society and is an admin for the MN Planted Aquatics group.
In 2019, became co-owner of New Wave Aquaria.
