It is difficult to find anything that can compete with the compelling combination of beauty, action, and colors that a marine fish tank can bring into a house or business.
I’ll never forget the first time I saw a fish tank full with aquatic life. When I was somewhere between 4 and 5 years old, it was when I was visiting the Coney Island Aquarium with my grandparents. The tank included an astonishing assortment of tropical and saltwater fish, which quickly captured my attention.
The fish had such vivid colors, and their bodies were so oddly shaped, it was unlike anything I had ever seen before. As the fish swam about in their habitat of a few hundred gallons, I stood there for what seemed like an eternity entranced by the continuous swirl of colors in motion.
During those times, coming across a saltwater tank was not nearly as prevalent as it is now. In point of fact, many restaurants, doctor’s offices, and even many private houses now have tanks, and those tanks much outshine the one you have there with its phony coral and decorations. However, just being in the presence of that marine fish tank was sufficient to inculcate in me a lifelong love of fish, particularly saltwater fish.
Because of this passion, I have accumulated more freshwater and saltwater fish tanks than I can count throughout the course of my life, and I also have a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Science.
This website is geared for those who are as passionate about marine fish tanks as I am, as well as those who desire to join our ranks. We are going to investigate the installation as well as the upkeep of saltwater tanks together. The instruments and supplies that are required to keep them in working order. and the living things that call such places home.
We will also look at their beauty (via photographs and films) and discuss some of the more contentious topics that surround the aquarium hobby market today.
