    They're bright, colorful little worlds in a tank. I like watching the creatures within it take notice of the world outside. Watching them watch me watch them.

    Silence Is.... Too Quiet

    I currently have 3 tanks. My 100 gallon tank is in my bedroom, with 2 powerful filters on it to keep it clean for the turtles. My first night in my new home, we hadn't moved the turtles yet. The house was unnervingly quiet. Now I am used to having the waterfall as background...

    Maybe it's just me, but

    whenever I go to aquariums I mentally scream when I see jellyfish... they are such beautiful creatures, and it's amazing how creatures like that go unnoticed most of the time and are treated as though they are insignificant.

    Went to the New England Aquarium today!

    It's not the biggest or flashiest aquarium, but it's so fun and they're non-profit and do so much to help the sea life there and raise awareness about sea life and ocean conversation.

    Ever since I was a little girl, I've always loved going to aquariums. Most of my friends liked to go to see the big sharks or the dolphins, but not me. I went, and still do go, sometimes, to see all the little, tiny fish. I just think they look so beautiful with all their...

    I think aquariums are the best date ever.

    I mean imagine taking someone to see all the beautiful, fascinating fishes and underwater life and seeing their eyes widen and see then smile and be in awe at the fishes and stuff. I'd think it'd be so cute. I frickin love aquariums.

    Serenity

    When I think of serenity, an aquarium is always what I think of.  The cool blues, exotic greens, and vibrant shades of oranges and yellows is truly a sight to behold.  I love the aquatic feel that surrounds me when I am in a dimly lit room next to a fishtank at an...

    I like how they look.

    I have never been to one though. I have been to a museum that had a small aquarium in it but I want to go to a huge aquarium with nothing but fish and really big tanks :3 If they are half as cool as they look on TV then I would love going to one.

    The New England Aquarium in Boston is one of my

    favorite places in the whole world to be. I don't know why- maybe it's because I've visited at least a dozen times in my life, maybe because it brings me back to my childhood. Whatever the reason, I love it there, despite how noisy and crowded it can be. Just sitting on a bench...
