    Aquatics Euphoria: Maintaining Your Discus Aquarium Optimally!

    in Podcasting

    In the wild, Discus thrive in rivers of South America with naturally soft, acidic water. The key to raising Discus in captivity is matching these water conditions. Most Discus are comfortable in water with pH ranging from 5.0-7.0, total hardness from 1-4°dKH, and temperature from 82-84°F.


    Discus are very sensitive to ammonia, nitrite, and changes in water temperature and quality. Thus, it is important to keep their aquarium water exceptionally clean, and temperature constant. To provide the stable conditions Discus need to thrive, their aquarium needs to be set up with the most efficient and reliable equipment available.

    Aquarium Biotopes As Presented By Sam Garcia Jr.

    in Pets

    Why Biotope?


    There are many good reasons for setting up an aquarium that tries to simulate the natural habitat of fishes. The foremost is probably from an ecological viewpoint. With the destruction of the tropical rain-forests worldwide it is important to preserve the native surroundings of our fish before they disappear forever. 

    Tropical fish interacting in their natural waters are completely different than the community set up we are all use to. This leads to the second reason, with all the advances in aquatic technology maintaining such a tank is now easier than ever and obtaining the proper species whether fish or plants is usually not difficult either.

    Oceanographer & Marine Biologist: Dr. Michael S. Atkins

    in Books

    Dr. Michael S. Atkins is a marine biologist and a biological oceanographer, and has been involved in ocean sciences for nearly 30 years. His career has taken him into marine, terrestrial, and even extraterrestrial (simulated anyway) ecosystems to look at a wide diversity of living organisms that make a living doing some very extraordinary things. 


    Dr. Atkins has been fortunate enough to work as an ocean scientist all over the world and even at the bottom of the ocean in deep submersible vehicles. He has worked and consulted on National Science Foundation Life in Extreme Environments and NASA Astrobiology Institute projects to detect life throughout the universe using the ocean bottom as a model. 


    From 2000 to the present Dr. Atkins has been involved with education and public outreach projects around the world regarding marine sciences. He was a microbiologist in a segment of the National Geographic documentary "Sustainable Seas", and served as a scientific consultant and deep-submersible diver in the film "Aliens of the Deep", by director James Cameron and Disney Pictures, among many other EPO projects both on land and the oceans.


    Henry and Tom is Dr. Atkins' first fiction novel based on his experiences with and love for the world's oceans and its remarkable inhabitants.
