On Establishing an Unbroken Food Chain Within Saltwater Reef Aquariums

Published by:

downloadEven the most experienced of aquarists are not immune to the difficulty of establishing a balance within a saltwater reef tank in a manner in which all tank members are able to absolutely thrive while nuisance algae is simultaneously kept at bay. Though it seems to be a vexing and complicated issue, the fact of the matter is that it is easily addressed with relatively minimal effort. Dr. Sid Solomon has compared this issue to one he experiences often in dentistry when patients have gaps in the dental care they receive that ultimately lead to more problematic issues developing in the future.

In fact, all that is necessary is to use a fairly standard ratio based on the number of gallons within the tank to determine the appropriate balance of tank inhabitants while ensuring diversity in terms of the size and activity levels of the inhabitants. Doing this makes it possible for the enclosed ecosystem within the tank to function in an optimal fashion since each inhabitant has its role to play and prevents waste from lingering in the tank and contributing to difficult and frustrating issues like widespread algae growth.

For saltwater tank enthusiasts, this means that there must be a focus on developing a food chain from top to bottom. It also means that aquarists have to adopt a broader focus when selecting new additions to their tank by considering how any addition will affect the current composition of the existing food chain.

Investors Underground: Observing Filter-Feeder Fish Inspires New Conical Filter Design

Published by:

goldfish-537832_960_720The sheer enormity of inventions that have been clearly inspired by nature tends to demonstrate that there is a great deal to be learned from a deep commitment to observation and application. With the invention of a new conical filter based on the mouth of a paddlefish, a filter-feeder fish, there is yet another example of how a serious approach to education, observation and application can yield tremendous benefits.

As Investors Underground would likely point out, aspiring inventors are not the only ones who should make such a continuing commitment to education, observation and application, as many members of the day trading community established by the company have achieved exceptional results in investing by following a similar approach.

Of course, it’s important to clarify that these day traders are not applying marine observations to an investment strategy. Through educational programs set up by Investors Underground and a forum in which members are able to observe fellow day traders at work in real time, an improved day trading approach can be developed in relatively short order and then be applied to a greater degree of success.

Ralph Slaske Breaks Down Einstein’s Quote

Published by:

Fish come in many shapes and sizes with absolutely outstanding abilities. Take the tiger fish for example which has the ability to snatch birds straight out of the air! The black swallower fish is able to swallow live fish that are twice their own length with the help of their jaw mechanics and a unique designed stomach.

Ralph Slaske has been intrigued by these amazing creatures of the deep and has done research on their abilities and lifestyle patterns since 1994. “Einstein’s quote of ‘if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will think it’s stupid’ suddenly makes sense to me,” said fish wanderer Slaske. “The Mudskipper fish is the only fish that can climb trees. He was saying not to compare people to others.”

As for new findings, Mr. Slaske hasn’t discovered anything new about fish that we don’t already know, but the simple leisure activity of watching, studying and experimenting with different fish and their skills brings joy to curious enthusiast.

Sunbeam Monster Fish

imagesGL105NF8 imagesHAZGCKJCThere is a monster fish in Sunbeam Lake.  When I paddle my kayak through the lake this huge fish jumps out of the water right next to me.  It must be an old carp but it sure acts like a monster.  I would guess it at two feet long and around twenty five pounds.  I am not a fisherman but this fish is interesting.  I thought there was something wrong with this fish at first but it seems to be making it just fine.  I have seen it float on the surface and wave its fin at me.  Luke Weil has seen the monster fish and believes.

Backyard Fish Ponds Are the Next Logical Step for Fish Tank Enthusiasts

Another Montana gem, the Big Hole.

Fish tank enthusiasts simply cannot get enough of saltwater and freshwater tanks, but not nearly enough tank enthusiasts try their hand at managing a backyard fish pond. These ponds are every bit as enjoyable as a tank, and it is a great medium in which enthusiasts can use their creativity in a less traditional way. According to Luke Weil, there are more suitable options for the inhabitants of these ponds than many people realize, as a backyard pond can house more than just goldfish or koi.

Depending on the geographic area, these ponds can be stocked with rainbow trout, largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill and more. These types of fish are hardly ever found in traditional fish tanks, so a backyard pond can be useful in providing additional diversity for fish tank enthusiasts to enjoy. Of course, a backyard pond is also an enjoyable project that requires different care and maintenance than a traditional tank, but it is not so different that it is difficult in any way.

For fish tank enthusiasts looking for a new challenge that also beautifies their backyard, a pond stocked with fish is the way to go. New fish can be stocked in the pond and there are plenty of landscaping options to enhance the look of a pond of any size. Just like a tank, a pond will require a pump to keep the water circulating, so placement will be somewhat dependent on the location of a power source to operate the pump.

Fishy Business

untitled (202) untitled (201)The typical pet store will have gold fish for sale.  Gold fish are the most common fish for aquariums as they are hearty and can live in most environments.  As they are easy to keep alive most people begin their fish experience with them.  How many gold fish get flushed down the toilet every day?  I would have to guess it would be hundreds.  How many have you flushed in your life.  What does that men about the fish?  Are their lives so worthless that we flush them away when they perish?  I guess so.  http://www.amazon.com/Ken-Fisher/e/B000APA1OK is a look at the wasted lives of the humble gold fish.

Something Fishy

untitled (11) untitled (10) imagesXFXB3PD7I woke up this morning to a stench coming from my room mates room.  Upon investigation I discovered a filthy fish tank full of dead or dieing fish.  I imediately dispatchd the dead and dieing fish to the toilet and dump the entire tank in the dumpster.  I cant wait to see if my room mate even notices the tank missing.  He obiviously doesnt care about the poor creatures or he would have tended to their needs more.  We do have a no pet rule so I feel I am within my rights.  This is so typical of pet owners that cant even take care of themselves.  Tonye Cole can speak on my behalf.

Sick Fish

untitled (2)Are your fish sick.  By the time you notice that your fish are not acting right it may be too late to save them.  Some fish problems are not preventable so it is best to do the things that we know helps.  Keeping the water clean is one of the most important things you can do for your fish.  This sounds simple but it isn’t.  Keeping the water clean with a filter is basic but what about the oxygen levels or the acidic levels?  You cant see these problems with the naked eye so how do you know when they need attention?  The best way is to change out the water frequently.  Fresh water is the answer to most water related problems.  Consolidated Credit can help you buy the right equipment.

Gold Fish Problems

Published by:

I was shopping at the store the other day and walked by the fish tanks I thought that it would be a good gift for my grandkids to take care of a fish.  Gold fish problems what .. How hard can it be to care for a fish to take care of. Gold fish are very hardy they do eat a lot if you feed them they will keep on eating.  The only way to keep a fish is clean the tank without soap remember because of the residue that is left on the tank.  Clean their bowl because the water is how they breathe and if the water gets to dirty there is less oxygen for the fish to live.  Water plants help with the bowl too. If you need a loan for that amazing aquarium see ConsolidatedCredit.org for you needs.
