World's 5 Most Beautiful Aquariums - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
Here are 5 of the world's most beautiful aquariums.
Number 5 - A must-see for everyone, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is located on a former fish canning site. At present the aquarium is home to about 550 species of plants and animals including sea dragons, Bloodybelly Comb Jelly, Otters, and Sharks.
Number 4 - Aquarium of Genoa, in Italy, is located in a charming old harbor area. Home to many spectacular marine animals, the aquarium attracts millions of visitors each year.
Number 3 - Melbourne Aquarium is one of the main attractions in Australia. Visitors enjoy the opportunity to swim with the sharks, feed the fish, or spend time with the penguins at this amazing aquarium.
Number 2 - Located in the beautiful city of Valencia, Spain, The Oceanografic is the largest aquarium in Europe housing approximately 45,000 marine animals. These animals represent many of the world's different ecosystems such as the Mediterranean, the Arctic, the Antarctic, and the Red Sea.
Number 1 - The Georgia Aquarium, located in the city of Atlanta is the largest aquarium in the world with more than 10 million gallons of water. Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot, donated $250 million towards the development of the aquarium.
Though the aquarium is not flashy or visibly technologically complicated, it is still quite amazing. It can be baffling at first sight and you may wonder, why doesn’t the water come gushing out of the holes in the glass? The holes, which are used for feeding (and sometimes petting) the fish are clearly open, and there is no visible mechanism pushing the water back, what sustains the water level then? It is a simple matter of physics. Because the tank itself is air-tight, by reducing the pressure inside the tank and matching it to the atmospheric pressure in the little water cups adjacent to the holes they maintain it so that the water has no reason to move in either direction. As a result, you can drop food in the cups, watch the fish come out and eat (although sometimes the more energetic ones can jump out of the holes as seen in the last photo).
Below is a detailed list of aquarium fish from the most expensive to the cheapest in the market today. It is important to note that the price of aquarium fish varies mostly depending on the scarcity of certain species. This is why it is possible to get expensive and cheap fish belonging to the same species. The most expensive aquarium fish are obviously the most expensive. When you spend thousands of dollars on the best aquarium, you want aquarium fish with a matching price tag. The same applies when you don’t have a lot of money to spend. Fish are very unique and amazing pets. Below are top 10 aquarium fish for every budget.Often considered the most attractive and the most “saltwater-like” fish, Discus are truly amazing. They have colors that are unrivaled in other freshwater aquarium fish but do require more care than most typical aquarium inhabitants. They prefer a pH much lower than what typically comes out of a water tap, and temperatures in the mid-80’s, higher than that of most community aquariums. Lastly, they have an unusual diet that consists of blood or black worms, beefheart, and brine shrimps. MMMMM-mmm!
