Sea aquariums has recently become increasingly popular.
In Europe and America marine aquarium, a phenomenon long familiar, and Russia, the level of development of the marine aquarium, a little ahead of Ukraine.
Although, in fairness, it should be noted that the oldest existing public marine aquarium is located in Sevastopol. Now, the presence of a marine aquarium at home or office likewise the statement that “life is good”.
To have a marine aquarium is prestigious and beautiful, and, finally, very, very interesting. Marine aquarium you can simply admire, and can be observed to the limit of detailed, complex and fascinating world of the coral reef.

“Back in the thirties dried up stoked the stove”
— In recent years we have almost completely destroyed river ecosystem, — says Sergey Mezhzherin, doctor of biological Sciences, Professor Institute of Zoology. I. Schmalhausen. — In Ukraine there is a huge estuary — the sea of Azov, which was considered the most cost-effective and highly productive ecosystem. Here the fish bred naturally. About how much it was in Azov sea, says a historical example: in the area due to the lack of firewood up to the thirties of last century the house was heated by dried specimens, casting them into the furnace instead of logs. Now it seems incredible, however, the number of freshwater fish in the country (even compared to the seventies of the past century) has decreased at least thirty times.
