Fish are pets to some, so this is why I plunked these photos here, some are pretty awesome!
These 3 pics are of the same aquarium, just shown at day and night~
The only aquarium I ever had containd two goldfish that I rescued from my workplace. Someone just had them in a fishbowl, letting the water get all dirty...solid yellow and smelly.
What I didn't know then is that goldfish are pretty dirty in terms of fouling an aquarium. I put them in a 10-gallon aquarium with a filter, but I had to clean it thoroughly every week...or was it 2 weeks? It was quite often. I'd actually take the fish out and drain the tank and put in fresh water.
I had those fish for at least five years, then they died one by one. It was sad. My husband and I actually cried. Of course, we're suckers for every living thing.
Unfortunately, I've never wanted to have an aquarium again even though I now know that other fish would not require such constant tank cleaning!
Oh...my fishes' names were Gigabyte and SCSI (pronounced Scuzzy). My husband is a computer geek. : )
Rearrange your mental images of how fish and sea life should be housed and cared for.
Did you know that the Baltimore Aquarium (arguably the world's finest) features a skilled master-chef in its in-house restaurant/kitchen who consciously prepares sustainable seafood dishes?
I like looking at aquarium tanks in local smalltown pet stores...anyone been to the one in Lebanon, New Hampshire?

I plan on taking my grandkids to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta this summer. ......
