To have a marine aquarium is prestigious and beautiful, and, finally, very, very interesting. Marine aquarium you can simply admire, and can be observed to the limit of detailed, complex and fascinating world of the coral reef.
But there are a number of factors that hinder the development of this area of the aquarium. And it’s not just a financial issue.
Although the creation of a marine aquarium is an expensive enterprise, but the main factor, in my opinion, is the lack of information on the merits. Tell friends about your desire to start a marine aquarium and you’ll probably hear something like: “But it’s so hard.”, “Here’s so-and-so did and, as a result, all fish died, corals are gone.” etc., This reaction is quite understandable. The unknown is always, to put it mildly, alarming. Continue reading

The first thing to do before the trip along with the usual charges, to prepare a first aid kit, which will have all the necessary medications in order to cope with various alterations that await us on the rest.

Despite the fact that the sight of those representatives of the animal world do not pose a serious risk, but the consequences after meeting with the individual instances can be extremely serious.

Greenhouse gas emissions in the coming decades could have a significant impact on oceanic life forms, with such dire predictions were made by the expert on marine biology Michael Beeman from the University of California in Merced. – Concern about this issue in informed circles is growing because human activity is very rapidly changes the pH (acidity) in the oceans. And although we don’t know what will be the final effect of changing the nitrogen cycle, the experiments are being conducted worldwide, and based on them we can assume that the effect will be global.
According to him, the growth of carbon dioxide emissions, increased by the burning of fossil fuels and other human activity increases the acidity of water, which, in turn, significantly alters the nitrogen cycle in the sea. And because nitrogen is an essential nutrient for living organisms, although, as it turned out recently, some life forms can adapt to other elements, eventually the process will affect all forms of marine life, reports innovanews .
During his research Dr. Beman lowered the pH of water at six different sites in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. In each case, when pH was lowered, and decreased generation of oxidized forms of nitrogen, which usually uses phytoplankton and drugability. This nitrogen is produced through the oxidation of ammonia in sea water by microorganisms. According to the scientist, these results can be used to assess the potential impact of oxidation on the nitrogen cycle in the sea and marine life forms in General. But the observed effects require additional research. Continue reading
