    I Apparently Offend People In Aquariums.

    I walk around, saying, "Oh, yummy, crab!  Scallops!  Mmmmm..." I could be a vegetarian but I could never give up seafood.  But on the serious side, aquariums are very calming and beautiful.  Octopuses (not octopi, a long running point of...

    Oscars

    Wanting something a bit different we bought two oscars, a black one, and a red tiger. They were about 2" long at the time. We fed them baby guppies, something we weren't short of, and as they grew they progressed to adult ones. Time passed......now these monsters are well...

    Pretty Colours :)

    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...

    Great Big To Desk Size

    From the great big aquariums like the Shedd in Chicago and the National Aquarium in Baltimore to the five and ten gallon and even the smaller home aquariums. All three of my wives participated in keeping the home aquariums. It was fun and really pleasant to look at the brightly...

    Rediscovered

    I had not been to an Aquarium since I was in Primary School, but we took my best friend there during her trip to Ireland and I realised how beautiful it was.  Particularly walking under the large tank and looking at the walls of the different variety of fish.  ...

    A Long History In Aquariums

    I have a very long history in aquariums; my father kept fish since 1955, and had a pet store (mainly fish and small animals, no kittens or puppies) in the 1960's, for which I was one of his main workers.  I loved the little critters, and he told me they were all...

    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...

    French Fish

    I visit Aquariums as often as I can and I've just realised recently that it seems I've only ever been to French Aquariums. As I live in the UK you can cross the channel in 45 mins (by tunnel) or 1 and a half hours (by ferry). So this means I go to France at least once a year...

    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...

    55 Gallon

    I have had fish tanks pretty much my whole life. I currently have a 55 gallon tank with a large pleco, an upside-down catfish, and 10 platys. Well, 11 because I saw a baby last night. 2 more look gravid, so more babies soon :)

    Had 30 Aquariums When I Was Younger

    Now, I'm down to five, but the total gallons of the five is greater than the total gallons of the 30 aquariums I had when I was younger. Back in my teens I had aquariums everywhere. 5-gallon,10-gallon, 20-gallon, and one 50-gallon. That was the 50's and early 60's...
