"We become what we think about all day long." -R.W. Emerson
I love life and nature. Plants and animals are good for my state of mind. Thus, an aquarist am I.
The plecostomus is one of the most popular species of algae eater for the freshwater tank.
Nothing makes an aquarium stand out like a large shoal of colorful fish.
Also known as the mystery snail, apple snails are a popular addition to the freshwater tank.
