Andreas Gahler was born on 28-02-1964 and lives in Rathmannsdorf a little village half way between Hannover and Berlin in Germany. Andreas is an Electrical Engineer. Andreas was born in 1964 in the sign of the fish. My life as an aquarist was probably already predetermined. However, I had to wait for my first tank then but until the age of eight.
My first fish were, how could it be different, Pelvicachromis pulcher. It was the birth of a never-ending love story to West African fish.
Seeing the biotopes of my favorites live and catching some of them by myself has always been one of my greatest dreams. During the 2015, 2017, 2018 & 2020 WAC Collecting tours I was able to realize this dream in Cameroon, Ghana and Guinea.
