Today we’re heading to Rhinelander Wisconsin to visit our good friend Kevin Kohen, and the amazing facility of LiveAquaria. For over decade Mr. Kohen and his team have offered some of the most diverse corals, and exotic fish, to the American reef aquarium hobby. This Friday we’ll be sitting down with Kevin Kohen to discuss all things aquariums from fish to corals, his favorite products, checking out his personal reef tanks, and we’ll definitely be picking his brain about general reef aquarium topics.
Kevin Kohen is the 2012 Aquarist of the Year recipient, has a long storied career in the saltwater aquarium hobby and he’s literally one of three people that come to mind when we have a very challenging aquarium question. It’s been over five years since we sat down and had a nice video chat (posted below) with Kevin about reefing so we’re well overdue for a return to this saltwater aquarium mecca.
As the director of LiveAquaria Kevin has been in the unique position of working with an incredibly wide range of corals, and has handled the kind of uber rare fish that most of us could only ever hope of owning. As an avid coral reefer and self-professed fish geek, Kevin Kohen is a wealth of information and uncommon knowledge about reef tanks, backed up with experienced that is measured in decades, not years.
Whether you catch it live or watch after it’s uploaded, this is one sit down between two lifelong saltwater aquarium nerds you won’t want to miss. However, if you do catch us live, this will be an excellent and rare opportunity to ask this juggernaut of the aquarium world your burning questions.
