I Like Aquariums

    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.

    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.

    There's this one aquarium

    where I live that has a bird enclosure (lorikeets) where you can go in and feed them, they land on you, etc. as a bird lover, I LOVE IT. Also I love marine life. We have two big fish tanks and I'd like a mini one but my dad says no. I love learning so much. It's fascinating...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    More like love. I love visiting them,

    I love the show tanked, and I dream of having a nice salt water aquarium once I have my finances straight. 😍 That probably sounds lame.

    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...

    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...

    This morning I was went to feed my fancy Lion Head Goldfish. I have pair of them. Sadly, I noticed that one had died early this morning. The colour was still good on the dead fish hence the knowledge that the fish had died within the hour or so. I notice that its mate was by...

    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...

    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.
