Interesting news/articles about tanks, reefs, oceans, etc that we find and think you may like along with tips, tricks, and how-to's that we use to keep our tanks running great!
If you are taking a vacation, a day trip or even live on the beach, do me a favor and look around you. Look at how beautiful it is and think of how relaxing and great of a place it is. Now look past that and see the trash that people have left behind or that has washed up on the shore. Our oceans are fighting hard to survive and thrive but we are not too helpful in this battle. Along with global warming, oil spills, and a number of other things that are going on, a huge problem is the amount of trash that's going into the ocean. Plastic is one of the biggest culprits and is extremely dangerous to all of the ocean wildlife. One of the things my mom did when we were growing up is have us take away more trash than we made. It's not hard, somedays it might only be a couple of items, some days it might be a shopping bag full of them. Even if it's only one item, it is one less thing that an animal can eat or get stuck in. And as an added bonus, the water that you swim in will be cleaner! (Let's be honest, no one likes it when a mysterious trash something touches them while swimming in the ocean...) Thanks guys and enjoy your vacation!
