The beauty of the Pacific Ocean

If you’re a nature lover, then you must have considered finding out some more information about the oceans. They are vast surfaces of water that take a big portion of the Earth. If you ever wanted to learn more about the oceans in general, then we advise you to start with the biggest ocean. This is the Pacific Ocean that we are talking about. So, what are some useful and fun facts that you ought to know about this ocean? Read the rest of the article and you will find out.

Largest ocean on Earth

pacific oceanAs we have mentioned in the previous paragraph, the Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean on Earth. It takes up about 28% of the space on the planet. The Pacific Ocean goes through to the coasts of various continents all around the world. Some of them are North and South America, Australia, and Asia.
As such, the Pacific Ocean is full of many different kinds of fascinating species of animals that inhabit it. Among the most majestic creatures that inhabit this ocean are the whales. Most kinds of whales are pretty peace-loving creatures. They feast on plants and algae. But there are also the devastating killer whales that end up killing sharks and seals for survival.

The sharks are also very common inhabitants of the Pacific Ocean. However, they have been somewhat misrepresented in popular media – TV and books. Most people are terrified of the sharks. This is one of the main reasons as to why this glorious species of fish is endangered in many places. They are still very beautiful to behold. Their skins are made of shark cartilage. This is the same element that is to be found in human noses and ears. This makes the shark’s skin very difficult to penetrate.

Nice plant life

The plant life is also flourishing in the Pacific Ocean. You can find many different types of algae, corrals, and many other types of underwater plants. They serve to enrich the diverse ecosystem of the entire Pacific Ocean.

But don’t for a second think that this is all there is about the Pacific Ocean. Our knowledge about the Pacific Ocean is far from perfect. We can only speculate as to what the greatest depths of this ocean hide from us. One day, we hope that we will be able to explore this ocean completely and see what it has to offer. But for now, our knowledge of it remains incomplete.

If you were ever fascinated by the oceans and the underwater life that they house, then the Pacific is the right place to go. There are many different things that will undoubtedly captivate your attention when it comes to this ocean. The plant life and animal life are all fascinating to behold. You will need to spend years of research before you’ll be able to say that you have mastered the subject of the Pacific Ocean. We hope that you will have a lot of fun while increasing your knowledge of the glorious Pacific Ocean.

Subnautica – A great game for the underwater-explorer

The concept behind Subnautica to gather raw materials to build bigger and more exciting things. This is more or less a standard in this genre of today. But the thing is that the world in Subnautica is so atmospheric, swimming in the depths and experiencing the darkness of a sunlit Mediterranean designs, while being replaced with very dark neon sparkling-designs underwater, is absolutely amazing . The strength of the game is the design that has been screwed with quite a bit. Certainly it has that Pixar-esque design with its own style, but the game still manages to find its own unique identity.

For Subnautica to be an beta-build with quite a little content, there is much to be found here. I have not encountered crashes or any bigger bugs. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to try the game on the highest settings; so maybe some problems will arise then. I chose between this game and another survival game named the Forest (which I intend to pick up later) and feel that there is huge potential, and I am already struck by the amount of things that exist in this magical world. I love games where it really feels like you’re entering a world, the concept, the story or the premise. There is actually a VR-version of Subnautica available as well. Exiting times indeed!

The Big Blue

Many have already written pre-reviews on Subnautica, which to some extent also illustrates the empty market of games based on underwater exploration. Something we only have a few games circling around. Although this game have a Robinson Crusoe kind of premise, it proves that there is a lot of potential for other developers to explore. And I hope Subnautica continues to grow bigger and more contentious and eventually become a great experience when released fully.

Something magical with underwater-games

Ever since pre-school, when I first played a game with an underwater theme, I have found that there is something very mysterious about this genre. That game was Ecco The Dolphin for the Sega Genesis, and it was more of a labyrinth where sharks and caves were found. Since then, a number of games have been created where the environment underwater has been a focus, ranging from U-boat-games to dive and shark-games. Because of my love of underwater-games, i’we had my eyes and  ears on this well-received Early Access game – for quite some time!

Think through your Aquarium-purchase

Buying an aquarium in a haste will never turn out good. The first question you should ask yourself is: Do I really have time? An aquarium requires care and care for its inhabitants to feel good. How much are you prepared to commit to your aquarium and the animals that live there? Where should it be displayed? Does the insurance cover if the aquarium would leak leak and 100 liters of water runs out over the parquet floor?  Nevertheless, it is your responsibility for the fish to feel good and have a healthy life.

Once you have decided that you are ready for a purchase, you should consider what type you want. There are of course  a variety of different ones. Everything from small coupons to large furniture varieties. Feel free to mail us and ask for a good starter package that suits your taste.

Beginners mistake

Many beginners who want to start up with aquariums want to start with something easy, and maby have decided to get a goldfish or something in those lines. What many don’t know, is that a goldfish bowl of about 12 liters is harder to handle than an bigger tank of around 300 liters.
The reason for this is that in a small bowl it is much more difficult to create a good balance for the fish,  than in the larger aquarium because of the constant water changes that disturb the balance. This means that the fish are at greater risk of getting ill. For beginners, we recommend getting a tank of 60 liters or more to get a comfortable start of your new hobby.

Decorated Polystyrene Resin for Aquariums

The most beautiful of aquarium decorations is undoubtedly the one that gives the most impression of observing a biotope environment closest to its natural state. For this, we strive to conceal all electrical equipment behind plants, stones or other roots.

What is to be viewed from the bottom of the water through which one sees the plaster of the wall is different from time to time. Of course, there are the posters representing a background nature, but we do not really let ourselves be taken serious, although the latter still arranges quite a lot the aesthetic appearance.

On the other hand, we all dreamed of admiring fabulous resin decorations, telling us that their price was inaccessible and that their manufacture remained very tedious. Well no. On the contrary, it is very simple. The only problem is that it takes time and needs to be rigorous. But I assure you that this little work is worth the effort to invest, because the result is really up to the task.

As for the cost, the manufacture of the decor of my 200 liter tank on two of its sides has returned to me less than 30 €.

aquasquale resin

DESCRIPTION OF THE SYSTEM

Equipment to be used:

– Extruded polystyrene (this is the one used for insulation).
– Epoxy resin … Personally, I use the R123 from Soloplast supplied with its hardener.
– Gloves (because the resin burns the fingers).
– Various dyes, foodstuffs or not.
– Sand of different granulometries (the sand of construction site is very suitable).
– Brushes cheap, because these will be unusable after use.
– Various cutting tools: cutters; Knives of different sizes, with and without teeth; limes …
– A thermal stripper, very practical for finishes, but not mandatory.
– Aquarophilic silicone.

The realization of the system:

First, measure the inside of the aquarium that will be destined to receive the decoration. If the tank has an internal decantation as was my case, it is the ideal opportunity for it to be hidden. I had opted to move it and make another PMMA that would have a shape more suited to the tank, and that would blend perfectly into the decor.

Before attacking, we must ask ourselves the question of the biotope that we want to achieve. It will be necessary to choose the thickness of the polystyrene according to this. A thickness of 4 cm is sufficient for a planted trough. On the other hand, a thickness of 10 cm may be better suited to an African cichlid or reef tank.

Once these different measures have been taken, all that remains is to cut the polystyrene block to the size of the aquarium, taking care to remove 1 cm on each length so that the block can then keep play when it is inserted In the tank.

The shaping of the decoration will begin now, with the sculpture of polystyrene. This phase is the longest and most tedious of the realization. Thus, before attacking, one must determine the form that the decoration must have. A rocky decoration will be different from a shore of earth … The sculpture must respect natural forms; For this, it is better to draw the different cuts to be made with a marker, so as to have an aproximative idea of the final result. To sculpt, any sharp object will be useful, and one must not be afraid to carve in depth so that the tortuous aspect is really highlighted.

Once this work has been completed, it is necessary to pass a slight stroke of the thermal stripper, so as to tighten the polystyrene balls and form a hard crust. It is necessary to take care with softness not to dig too much the polystyrene which melts very quickly under the effect of the heat.

The next step is to coat all sides of the epoxy resin decor. Polystyrene tends to release toxic solvents (styrene) in contact with water. This is why it must be coated with resin, even on the faces that will be glued to the glass of the aquarium.

The resin must be mixed with dye to achieve a natural effect. Here again, the color will be determined according to the expected result. I used earth from Siena and gray to get a “shoreline” effect. In addition, the use of dye makes it possible to see where one has passed and thus to avoid any lack. All that remains is to apply the resin to the decoration. Better to make small amounts of mixture because the resin dries relatively quickly.

Then comes the time of sanding. It is aesthetically interesting to use sand of various granulometries: this gives a more natural effect. For my part, I used construction sand.
