The big blue: aquarium addict Jan Jacobs

Jan Jacobs, 34, bought his first aquarium aged 21 and today owns three. One for show, and one for emergencies (in case a fish gets sick, is attacked by another fish or, worse, needs to be quarantined). His aquariums are inhabited by by 10 fish, a few Scarlet cleaner shrimps, a sea star, a black sea urchin, a hermit lobster and a few sea snails. “Currently, I have a black and orange clownfish mating with each other and I’m very excited about the result.”
