Roger Vitko is the General Manager at Tunze USA and he has been with the company for 17 years. He has a reputation in the reef keeping community for being responsive, honest, and helpful with technical support. Roger’s original career path was pre-med and he even toyed with the idea of being a diplomat. Eventually, Roger turned one of his hobbies into a career and started Tunze USA after several years of owning a local fish store in Austin TX. He is an aquarium hobbyist at heart!
We quiz Roger about the new Tunze macroalgae reactor we saw at MACNA 2018, get updates on the Smart Controller 7000, plus talk about pumps, protein skimmers, auto top-off systems, company history and so much more! Then hobbyists from around the United States call in and ask Roger everything they’ve been wanting to know about Tunze and their products.
This live call was recorded on September 28, 2018.
