  • Aquatics Euphoria: Neale Monks Returns to Discuss Livebearers!

    in Pets

    These extremely colorful and active fish are popular among hobbyists of all experience levels. Despite their delicate appearance they are hardy, easy-care fish that add great beauty to any home or office aquarium.
    Just as their name suggests, livebearers are fish that give birth to live, free-swimming young. However, in the aquarium hobby, the term livebearer is commonly used to refer to a specific group of fish belonging to the family Poeciliidae. This group of freshwater fish includes perennial aquarium favorites such as mollies, guppies, and platies.

  • Aquatics Euphoria: The Rule of Thirds In Aquascape: Amber Sheriff Co-Hosting

    in Pets

    Aquascapes, like all art forms, have a plethora of rules of guidance and application. These rules exist to guide us towards success, and often succeed in doing so. But remember: rules exist only to guide, and a skilled artist can actually enhance their work by bending or breaking the accepted rules if done so in just the right artistic manner: aquatic artistry is no different.
    The Golden Ratio was realised by the ancient Greeks and has been used in all art forms for thousands of years. It provides a guide to achieve the perfect balance within a work of art, or any endeavour that involves placing objects in a space. It can be simplified into the rule of thirds which doesn't have the exact same ratios but is easier to implement when composing a two dimensional layout such as an aquascape from one viewing angle- for example the front of the tank. Amber Sheriff will be discussing this rule of thirds!
