Francesco Gonnella

Fish Care Specialist

Joined Fitz’s Fish Ponds in 2012. Franco is the Fish Care Specialist. He monitors the water quality in all of our stock tanks, he does weekly slime coat biopsies to make sure the fish are all parasite free. Franco feeds the fish multiple times a day and backwashes the filters.

He goes out to customer ponds and does slime coat biopsies on fish that customers are concerned about. After analyzing it under a microscope, he then treats the fish with the necessary medication depending on the parasite they have.

In his free time, Franco enjoys taking care of his own fish, going hiking, fishing, and photography.
