The archipelago of Raja Ampat in West Papua – the heart of the “coral triangle”, the epicenter of the coral growth in the oceans. It is from these places the majority of coral species of the planet, ocean currents carry their eggs throughout the Pacific Ocean, creating new coral populations in tropical waters with suitable conditions. 75% percent of the total number of coral species on the planet occur here. It is not surprising that the underwater gardens of Raja Ampat is perhaps best seen in my diving career. Their preservation in their original form contributes to the lack of advanced civilization in the nearby regions of West Papua still is home to some of the most traditional cultures, the activity of which does not cause much harm to the environment. The tropical waters of Raja Ampat support the greatest species diversity in the oceans – more than 4,000 species of fish and marine animals, including unique species of macro-world and the largest fish on the planet – whale sharks (meet with which here, however, is very difficult). To reach the archipelago you can Continue reading
In the first place. conceived as a small pond? If its depth is less than 50 cm, it will quickly heat up, the fish will suffocate from lack of oxygen. Or water you have to aerate more (it generally somehow have to aerate – e.g., mini-fountain). The minimum depth 80 cm Depth for the winter: about 2 meters depending on the region and the average thickness of the ice. Although in your case this is not true – telescopes and red beanie winter will not survive.
Secondly. need to peruse the issue with the water parameters. Apartment in the aquarium they are alone, in an open pond with a different water source might be completely different. If the difference is too big – fish stress, sores and even the threat of death.
Thirdly. what is the anticipated bottom of the pond? Natural or artificial (film, plastic, concrete, etc.). I think the second option? Get ready for a difficult (and fairly common) procedure, clean the bottom from silt and other kaki, to purchase powerful external biofilter, which will run constantly and eat electricity, to protect your fish from birds and cats and so on and so forth.

Paleontologists Philip Carey (Philip Currie) from the canadian University of Alberta (University of Alberta ), and Rodolfo Coria (Rodolfo Coria) from the Argentinean paleontological Museum Carmen Funes discovered the largest carnivorous dinosaur.
Fossils of a carnivorous animal, considerably larger than the well-known Tyrannosaurus Rex were found in Argentina.
Dinosaur Mapusaurus roseae weighed 6 tons and was averaging 12-13 meters in length. He lived 100 million years ago and preyed on large dinosaurs. The name Mapusaurus is derived from the word “Earth” in the language of the tribe Mapuche living near Nakhodka, in Western Patagonia.
“This lizard was large enough and strong enough to attack the 100-ton, 40-metre long herbivorous argentinosaurus ( Argentinosaurus ), who lived near him here, during the Cretaceous period,” explained Carrie. Continue reading
