Tim Ilch

Owner and proprietor Tim Ilch has been building his business since he was 6 years old.    From his first freshwater fish tank, to his personal 300 gallon salt water display to his 9 dart frog aquariums, this isn’t just a passion, this is his life.   This self-taught fish-man got his degree in marketing and business, and put it to work to build JC Aquaria in 2010.  Some of his most unique work has been done for his clients, now friends.  They love to challenge him to create new and different visions, refer him to friends, and keep him on his toes in a way that only fish lovers can. 

Tim lives in Jersey City, with his two cats Mickey and Koly, along with his menagerie of tanks and aquatic friends.
