Aquarium Stands

For a long time, I have not been into rearing fishes nor having an aquarium here in our place because of the fact that I really cannot attend to those fishes anymore. Although, my little man really do love having pet fishes, I just always speak to him explaining how to take care of those fish but his mom just cannot. I told him that I prefer to be at his side and take care of him the whole day rather than in those fishes.

But just very recently, along with the upcoming birthday celebration of my son, he always mention to have fish-themed party. I did not say yes nor disagreed because we already had that theme last year, on his 2nd birthday. This time around, I wanted him to have a new birthday theme. So he chose other ideas. But still, he is insisting to have pet fishes at home after seeing from our neighbor an old studio rack being used as an aquarium stand. I haven’t seen it myself but our house helper mentioned one time when she and my little man went to our neighbor’s house.

I do not know what should I do but I am certain for now that I won’t have an aquarium yet here, even how small that aquarium would be.

Songs for Fish

Nemo has it! Definitely the very reason why kids and especially my little man, Zach, really do love fishes, both stuffed and real ones. In fact, he loved to listen to nursery rhymes with fish illustrations which I downloaded from the internet. And as I have mentioning always, we do not have great-sound system that provides quality music, or even a component of it such as a speaker like power acoustik. So what I just do is to utilize the mobile phone or directly connect a flash drive loaded with number of fish videos and plug and play it then in the television.

Just then on, my little boss enjoys songs for fishes and other nursery rhymes.

Old Speaker Aquarium

I had been encouraging my friends who also love to pet fishes to use recyclable stuff for their fishes instead of buying new ones. This is for them to save money from spending those new stuff and also to help minimize trashes which are yet usable.

Reusable Items as Aquariums

One example is the image above. As you can, that is an old television set. But there are other old items which we thought are not useful anymore at home but still can be used as aquarium. A very good example is an old speaker. Of course, you cannot just use iloud speakers since those are small. Utilize the bigger speakers so that a number of fishes can be accommodated.

I have not tried one yet since we do not have old speakers here. But I will make sure to share to you here once I got to make an old speaker as an aquarium.

Reusing Old Musical Drums as Fish Ponds

As shared previously, we are reusing old tires as fish ponds. And now, I am thinking of reusing old musical drums as fish ponds since I have seen several old drums thrown near our yard. I have not checked on them if they are good to be used as it is but I am sure, those can be reused to other forms.

I have seen an old orange county drum and percussion set. It is still looking good but I just can’t figure out why it was thrown out.

But of course, before I’ll pick those up to reuse, I need to make sure that those will really thrown as unusable one. I’ll make updates as soon as I can progress with this plan.

Appeal for protection of Thresher Sharks

Thresher Sharks in the Philippines are most commonly spotted in Monad Shoal specifically near the Malapascua Island. These sharks provide not just diversity to the Philippine ecology but also more tourist invites to experience the beauty of shark diving in the country.

However, recently, many conservationists are now appealing for protection of these Thresher Sharks in the area due to the danger in its possible extinction. We just so hope that this appeal will become into reality.
