It’s important to understand that the saltwater system is designed with one thing in mind: showstoppers. Who are these, you may ask? Well, the fish, of course. Suppose you’ve been lucky enough to experience swimming in the ocean along the shore or coastal reef. In that case, you may have experienced the captivating beauty provided by the array of colors from fish as they swim through the waters around you. The aquascape and design for the aquarium act as a “canvas” or stage for these beauties. The fish act as the colorful paint that breathes life into the ecosystem.
While the underwater landscape offers its own artistic visual, it’s the color, character, and behavior of the fish that is hypnotizing.
