Wayne Shang began keeping marine aquaria in the early 1980s after keeping freshwater fish since childhood. His Californian home reef aquarium has long been considered one of the most beautiful in the United States.
In the past 10 years, he has focused on keeping small poly stony corals and Tridacna clams. Pictures of his aquaria have appeared in numerous books, magazines, and on the internet. Although keeping marine life is his hobby, Wayne has contributed his experience to overseas commercial breeding programs which raise marine fish and clams. He also takes time from his busy schedule to speak at local aquarium societies and clubs to share his knowledge and help other aquarist solve their problems.
Wayne holds a MBA degree from Concordia University and is a Ph.D. candidate in global business management.
