  Aquarium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An aquarium (plural aquariums or aquaria) is a clear-sided container (typically constructed of glass or high-strength plastic) in which water-dwelling plants and animals (usually fish, and sometimes invertebrates, as well as amphibians, marine mammals, and reptiles) are kept in captivity, often for public display; or it is an establishment featuring such displays.
Freshwater aquaria remain the most popular due to their lower cost and easier maintenance, but marine (saltwater) aquaria have gained cachet as dedicated enthusiasts prove it is possible to preserve these challenging environments.
For freshwater aquaria, additives formulated to remove chlorine or chloramine (used to disinfect drinking water supplies for human consumption) are often all that is needed to make the water ready for aquarium use.

 The manufacture and sale of glass aquaria   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Where aquaria are 36 inches or greater in length they should be made in 6mm glass when exceeding 15 inches in height and in 10mm glass where the water depth exceeds 18 ins depth.
Aquaria to be tested should be selected from ordinary stock and not specifically manufactured for the test.

In evidence of this possibility, the one aquarium in Shimek's study of reef aquaria that used natural seawater had amongst the highest levels of many of these toxic metals.
The copper levels in these three aquaria using natural seawater are also comparable to the levels found in my own tank using only Instant Ocean salt mix (10-13 ppb copper).
It is expected that more than 99.9% of the copper ions present in the water column of reef aquaria are attached to something else, and what they are bound to has a big impact on how they behave.

 Control of Algae in Planted Aquaria
Experiments with planted aquaria appear to indicate that growth of green algae, red algae, and cyanobacteria is suppressed in planted tanks in which the availability of phosphate is the factor limiting plant growth.
Magnificent planted aquaria are routinely produced this way, but the components are expensive, the ingredients are not disclosed on the package (but see [3]), and little insight is gained into the relationship between plants and algae (or how the system should be "tweaked" for best results).
Despite the lack of controls on the various experiments, and the inability of the authors to directly measure phosphate in the aquaria, there is compelling evidence to support the hypothesis that all types of algae (including cyanobacteria) can be effectively controlled in planted aquaria by ensuring that phosphate is the factor limiting plant growth.

 Practical Fishkeeping magazine | CAPS campaigners attack UK public aquaria
According to The Independent, CAPS commissioned a report into welfare in British public aquaria which was undertaken by Jordi Casamitjana, a zoologist and former zoos expert for the Born Free Foundation.
It also claims that fish at 75% of the aquaria showed signs of scars and deformity and that few of the aquaria were actually involved in conservation projects, despite creating the impression that they were.
All public aquaria in the UK are bound to follow the rigorous Zoo Licensing Act 1981 which sets clear guidelines on welfare, as well as promoting conservation.

 Amazon.com: DVD: Aquaria (1999)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Five aquaria to choose from: four saltwater and one freshwater, each with different fish, fauna, rocks and reefs
Aquaria was shot on Digital Betacam, allowing the viewer a choice of three video formats: 1) 16:9 widescreen, 2) 4:3 pan and scan, 3) Widescreen letterbox
The classic and freshwater aquaria are nice enough to look at in the wide shots, also because of the background but the other aquaria aren't really examples of fine composition in that area.

While best known for describing the use of turf algae as a natural absorber of aquarium pollutants, the book 'Dynamic Aquaria' shines as a plea for the re-evaluation of how we appreciate aquarium systems and their micro-ecologies.
Rather than the display of just a few select specimens, it proposes more emphasis on (and therefore replication of) the fascinating interactions between species and environment.
