Who wants Crabs?

images2LEEHVWE untitled (4)Hey look,  I like fish aquariums but crabs?  Really? These ugly little crustaceans have no place in my home. They are a mess and stink to high heaven.  I don’t even like to eat them.  I don’t even want to talk about the crab louse.  There is a reason that bitchy people are called crabby.  They look angry all the time.  Ever met a happy crab?  Who knows?  You cant read the little buggers.  If one gets out of the cage it is panic time with the kids.  Maybe not missing snake panic but definitely scary stuff if found in your shorts.  Dana Sibilsky found a crab in the toilet.  Flush time as far as I’m concerned.

Tropical Fish are Best

Tropical Fish are the most colorful and the overall best in my opinion.  There or so many to choose from seawater fish. The problem with saltwater fish is that the water has to be just right on the most colorful and exotic fish.  These fish can really cost a lot of money so you don’t want to just go buying a fish tank and filling it with fish until you do your homework first and to ask a lot of question first. untitled (8) Then start out small and less expensive until the salt water tank is just right adding the more exotic costly fish little a times to keep from losing a bundle of money getting set up and then finding out how had it is to care for and keep tanks up.  With the technology these days keep a fish tank is getting easier but not fully cheaper in the start up.  Fish are so cool and calming I love to go into offices with fish in them it just happens you relax and give a since of caring.  Dove Medical Press says that fish tanks at the doctors office are a great feature.

A Great Reef Tank Needs Plenty of Diversity

Diversity in Reef TankOne of the biggest advantages of starting a reef tank is the abundance of options that such a tank provides. In fact, a reef tank should include a great deal of diversity so that a thriving ecosystem can develop. This diversity should include everything from corals, crabs and a variety of saltwater fish.

According to Adam Kutner, an aquarium expert who keeps both saltwater and freshwater tanks, cultivating diversity in a saltwater tank is simply good for all of the inhabitants of the contained ecosystem. Each member plays a different and important role in helping the ecosystem thrive, and of course, diversity among the inhabitants makes for a more interesting and entertaining aquarium.

The beauty of a reef tank, as Kutner has pointed out on several occasions, is that the presence of corals, fish, crabs and the like function in a variety of ways that help the tank sustain itself. While some of the larger aquariums will use artificial coral, it is always preferable to utilize living coral. This will help the tank become a living ecosystem whose diverse inhabitants work together and benefit each other simply through a continued presence.

While saltwater tanks are more difficult to maintain, the fact that a reef tank can include such a great deal of diversity is well worth the effort. Most saltwater tank enthusiasts agree that they do not even notice the extra time they spend on their tanks, as they so thoroughly enjoy working on their tank so that it continues to thrive.
