Aquatic and Terrestrial Research Team. This project is designed to analyze the specific strains of bacteria used in a commercial probiotic formula. This particular probiotic compound could lead the way into the next generation of home aquaculture hobbyists.
Aquatic & Terrestrial Research Team. While Probiotics continue to grow in popularity, it is important to look at the actual organisms found in culture.
For hobbyists looking for something truly inspiring and educational, I recommend looking into mudskipper care.
Adam reviews using probiotics in shrimp culture.
And for anyone still wondering - the original colony is still alive and doing well now a nearly a decade later in the original tank.
The overall goal was to show the potential for captive aquaculture.
The Finch Shutoff Relay is a great electrical invention. This item will undoubtedly prevent many overflows (it has saved me already).
While water motion will forever be debated, we can all agree that having options on water flow is always great. Thankfully we now the ability to produce water flow in all sorts of varieties.
This is a review of some of the more common water flow devices used in the hobby.
How can a hobbyist decide how to set up their tank if they don't have an idea on how the water will move in the tank?
You may not think that learning about fossils will help you as an aquarist. Indeed you may be correct. But it will certainly help you in understanding the great history behind those colorful little fishes sitting in your living room aquarium.
My position was that the many groups involved in the hobby were not working directly with each other and far more could be done.
Recent developments of larval shrimp cultures, the success of commercial breeding programs, and the newly generated interest of aquarists to breed invertebrates may serve together as the big breakthrough.
This article is intended foster discussion on larval rearing systems. The information presented here are the current and ongoing developments of larval rearing systems used by hobbyists and researchers alike. Future articles will show the construction and design of rearing systems.
Adam continues his series on tidepools.
Adam discusses aquascaping and lighting and their importance in a reef tank.
Advanced aquarists have their own set of concerns and ideas when setting up an aquarium. They are not bothered with learning the basics, but instead are looking for the techniques and design to provide what they didn’t already have with their previous aquariums.
The act of feeding an aquarium produces a greater need for filtration. However the reason for feeding is often times to satisfy the needs of particular animals. These animals are themselves serving in a way to help filter the aquarium as they consume the provided foods.
This article is a continuation describing some of the more philosophical filtration practices and concepts.
