After working for more than three decades with the best and ultra-luxurious public aquariums around the world, I realized my craving for aquatic life will be better fulfilled with my brain child BLAH (Blue Life Aquatic Habitats)
I have always had a keen interest in conservation of endangered species and aquatic biology
