Jason Russell the president and lead aquarist of Nautilus Aquatics LLC and Captain Blackjack's has been in the aquarium trade for 20 years. He started his love of aquatic animals as a child in the south going down to ponds and streams to catch turtles and crawdads. he would keep them in a bucket for a day to observe their behaviour before releasing them back into the wild. Jason spent most of his life as an aquarist, and also diverged to find himself working in the professional film industry. He is listed in the IMDB for several productions which have seen international release, fared very well at Sundance Film Festival, LA Film Fest etc. His film background was primarily in Special Makeup FX, and acting as an Assistant Director. his primary passion is for aquatic life however.
Now after years as one of the top aquarists in the country for a national pet store chain, and acting as a lead aquarist for a national aquarium service company, Jason has settled down in the Columbus Ohio area with his very own companies Nautilus Aquatics LLC and Captain Blackjack's LLC.
"I have no interest in doing goofy looking sad sack lava rock and bleached dead coral aquariums for people. I would much rather offer them a beautiful window into what keeping aquariums and aquatics animals is all about." Jason said.
Nautilus Aquatics LLC is one of the few companies in the country which provides jellyfish aquarium design and installation among every other type of aquarium, pond or aquatic feature you can imagine.
"Jellyfish cannot be kept like most other aquatic life, they need a special type of setup, and specialized care. There is a huge learning curve, and myself and a few others are adept at this sort of thing. It is not for everyone, and we do guard our trade secrets jut as a magician might." Jason said.
they have worked on everything from 2 gallons to 40,000 gallons.
Jason is interested in bringing back the thrill of aquariums, and is excited to provide comprehensive design services which make every aquarium look different and as a work of art. they also provide aquarium maintenance and cleaning services in the Columbus Ohio area.
The second company Captain Blackjack's is a line of frozen and flake aquarium foods which have been developed by Jason as a healthier and better alternative to other more commercial foods.
Aquarists and breeders love it.
Jason is also one of the few seahorse and jellyfish breeders in the country.
