“The repetitive geometrical shape of Infinity aquarium creates a visual metaphor to life in the fish bowl.” (Designer: )
Aquariums welcome a part of nature into our homes that we may never otherwise see. Shaping these sunken communes, though, can come with a hefty price tag. After spending a fair bit of money on a tank, lighting, filtrations and corals, you're still missing the best part — the fish! While all you may need is an imagination to concoct a fish tank, there is a lot to consider when it comes to a fish's value and compatibility with your tank's other aquatic life. Saltwater fish tend to be more expensive than freshwater fish because of their beauty, size and the risk involved in catching them. While a Yellow Tang would certainly brighten up any tank, an Orange Tail Fiji Puffer is half the price and more interacti
Freshwater aquarium fish like goldfish make great pets, but it’s important to set up the right environment for your finned friend’s new home. We’ll help you prepare for your fish’s new life with your family so that things go swimmingly for both of you.

Try to think of this topic as a necessary evil, to truly understand the living aquatic animals in our care, we need to also be able to monitor and control their mortality as best we can. All aquarists will lose animals; some will lose more than others. This mortality can be managed by preferentially acquiring certain species while avoiding others. Examining the mortality rate of fishes in captivity can also offer insight into the relative ability of the available husbandry methods to support aquatic life. Some new aquarists have unrealistic expectations of the mortality rates of their fishes. It is probable, that as new aquarists, their fish will experience a higher than normal mortality rate, yet even a few fish losses early on, can cause some of them enough frustration that they soon leave the hobby. One unconfirmed report from the 1980's stated that the average length of time that a person stayed in the marine aquarium hobby was about nine months - due in large part touncontrolled mortality rates.An example of a Type I animal would be human beings. Most people survive well past their normal reproductive years, and then tend to die of old age as they reach their maximum life span. Type II animals would have a constant mortality rate throughout their normal life span. Examples of this would be seen in sea anemones that reproduce by fission, where the two split anemones would be expected to each be as likely to die as the other since predation would be expected to be relatively constant. The type III animals include many aquarium animals that produce large numbers of young. High mortality rates are often seen in larval fishes, but once they reach a certain age, the mortality rate levels off. It is vital for home aquarists to understand these trends (Hemdal 2003).
