Airing On Sunday
8:00 pm eastern, 7:00 pm central and 5:00 pm pacific
On Sunday June 14th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, Albert and Joe will be discussing something a little different than Nano Tanks. They will be discussing Tropical Biotopes of the Caribbean and Hawaiian Enviroments.
A Hawiian Biotope tank offers many choices to the aquarist. To make an aquarium a true “living picture of the Coral Reefs”, we need to work harder to duplicate the whole environment of the fish. By doing this, we will see behaviors not normally seen in aquariums (such as two fish “helping” each other out, or interacting in a unique fashion) and have a more natural aquarium. Hawiian fish are colorful, plus, most are hand-caught and rather hardy. This is only a sample of the fish available from the region. Note: This does not wish to imply that all these fish are reef-safe, nor compatible with each other.
Often overlooked and underappreciated, the Atlantic biotopes are amazing aquariums. Sustainable inhabitants are here in our own backyards and ready for hobbyists to create new and interesting aquariums. Much can be learned about these animals from captive systems and hobbyists have a remarkable opportunity in front of them to participate in the process and progress.
