Sunshine For The Marine Aquarium

Sunshine For The Marine Aquarium

Marine fish come in all sorts of colours, some quite garish, others beautiful but more subtle. There’s one fish that is a ray of sunshine, catching the eye. The fish is the yellow tang (Zebrasoma flavescens) which comes from the Hawaii area. It grows to around 6ins (15cm) so is

I Like My Aquarium

I Like My Aquarium

When very young I kept an aquarium with goldfish in. It facinated me to an extent but not to the extent that marine types do. Starting a marine aquarium was a very good move, it has kept me interested for many years. I have been keeping marines for about 40

All Up and Running, What Now?

All Up and Running, What Now?

Well, the first answer is ‘Well done’ and ‘Enjoy’. Though the aquarist will view the new aquarium as terrific, it will not be at its best for a while, maybe a year, perhaps more. If a reef aquarium, the corals have to settle. Also the fish have to become accustomed

I Would Like A Reef Aquarium

I Would Like A Reef Aquarium

Wandering around a zoo a beautiful reef aquarium is seen. It looks wonderful and it is big. Much too big for the home. But would it be as good in a smaller aquarium? ‘Hmm’ is the thought. Or maybe a friend has such an aquarium and it is beautiful too.

Correct Lighting, Very Important

Correct Lighting, Very Important

When we humans enter a dark room, we turn the light on to enable us to see. Intelligent technology! That, of course, is not the reason for the importance of marine reef aquarium lighting, though we do need to see inside the aquarium. Ok, but what about fish aquariums? These

Marine Aquarium Seawater – Start Clean

Marine Aquarium Seawater – Start Clean

The marine aquarium, be it fish only or reef, needs quality seawater for health. Quality seawater is the number one on the list of requirements for success. This is more easily achieved nowadays. First of all, the aquarist will usually obtain sea salt, online or from the local dealer. This

LED, The New Style Aquarium Lighting

LED, The New Style Aquarium Lighting

Lighting is very important to the marine aquarium. Fish need light as they respond to ‘daylight’ as they would in the wild, coming out to search for food. Most corals need light to remain healthy, the light ‘feeds’ the zooanthellae. Not only is light needed for corals, it needs to

Potter’s Angelfish – Beautiful And Not Too Big

Potter’s Angelfish – Beautiful And Not Too Big

The marine aquarium can pose a problem, although this problem is usually short-lived. The problem is that a beautiful fish has been seen but is it too big for the aquarium? This arises for example when the aquarist views aquariums in the pet store and sees a lovely fish such

The Mandarin Fish, Beautiful But The Beauty Isn’t Free

There are some really beautiful creatures that live on the reef and the aquarist is very lucky that some can be kept in a suitable aquarium. Some of these beauties are fairly easy to keep, all needing care of course. The Mandarin fish however is not easy and definitely should

External Heat And The Marine Aquarium

External Heat And The Marine Aquarium

Heat has an effect on all organisms including humans. Of course marine aquariums don’t have to be tropical, there are cold water seas as well. However, a guess suggests that most aquariums kept are tropical, fish only or reef. All aquariums, tropical or cold water, can be hit by heat
