I'm Thomas Brown, YouTube Content Creator, Filmmaker, Wedding Videographer, and The Video Content Director for Salty Supply. As an avid film geek I was passionate about videography long before ThomasVisionReef was formed. My journey in film started in 1998 creating student films in college. Ever since then I have been addicted to filmmaking! I continuously create online commercials for small businesses, have create several web-series, and worked as a camera-man for New York City Mass Transit News. So what does all this have to do with aquariums?
My Aquarium Hobby. 8 years ago I got my first fish. Like so many others my fish fish was a betta fish in a betta bowl. I quickly increased home from a bowl to a 5 gallon tank to a 20 gallon. I then played around with planted tanks which are beautiful but I found the most joy once I started keeping saltwater aquariums. The first first I fell in love with was a Niger Triggerfish. I had never seen anything like!
YouTube. The Aquarium business is probably one of the hardest industries to be successful in. If you've been in this hobby for a while you too have probably seen fish stores close their doors for good due to lack of profits. A little over 2 years ago a few fish stores local to me ended up closing. I was sad to see them go. Around the same time I had just found another fish store near my house. It was less than 5 minutes away and I never knew it was there. That's when I decided to go around my neighborhood and film fish stores free of charge. My goal was to give them free exposure so hobbyist could find more great stores to shop at and the stores could gain more business and help keep the hobby alive in my neighborhood. I had no plans on making aquarium videos past that. But I started to quickly gained subscribers and those subscribers wanted to see more videos. And so ThomasVisionReef was born.
