Koi Fishes for 2014

Aside from the Good Luck Charm Fishes I shared in my previous post, many said that Koi Fishes do also bring good luck.

In fact, Koi fishes do not just bring in good luck but also success, courage, longevity and prosperity in life and in the family.

I personally don’t believe on this but when some of my friends shared their experiences and so I was somehow persuade to try out rearing Koi fishes. But to my dismay, pets are not allowed in my place. So I just wait then until I can move to a new place where pets are allowed. Hopefully, that would be realized before the year ends.

Because fishes love music too

Music is soothing and relaxing. If you think that only human beings love music, you are wrong because fishes do love music too.

Fishes and Music

My aquarium at home is filled with lovely, lively, and relaxing fishes of different colors. While watching them swim I do them a favor of playing my favorite music using my newly purchased stanton c.402 at guitar center. I can really see they love the music played because they swim in different direction and they look active. The good thing about this CD/MP3 player is its DJ rugged durability. Meaning it will not easily wear out with everyday use.

Aquarium Beads and Accessories

I didn’t notice not until I seriously put an eye on the aquarium beads and accessories of our neighbor’s aquarium that it was looking like Pandora bracelets from Reeds.com, I mean, those beads.

Aquarium Beads and Accessories

Yes! Those beads are looking very elegant in either as bracelet beads or aquarium beads. What do you think?

What we also have at home are somehow the same as the picture above but not as shiny as those. But yet still provides beauty to the aquariums and color to add to the fishes.

Best Music for Fishes

I haven’t mentioned here yet that I failed to realize my first plan which was to have us an aquarium here in our new place. I remembered it only when a friend of mine consulted me and asked my opinion which music is for his fishes.

Fish Music

I actually didn’t know. So I to just have something to talk about, I threw him a joke, I said he better have his fishes a Music Man Bass so for those fishes to party all day and all night. Then we just laugh at each other. Kidding aside, I really do not have any idea which music is best for fishes.

Oarfish discovered in Catalina measures 18 feet

A leisure discovery that was after snorkeling as Jasmine Santana, a 26-year-old instructor for the Catalina Island Marine Institute saw an 18-foot-long oarfish in Toyon Bay.

Oarfish Discovered Near Catalina Measures 18 Feet

Oarfish are large, greatly elongated, pelagic lampriform fish and belong to the small family Regalecidae. Found in all temperate to tropical oceans yet rarely seen, the oarfish family contains four species in two genera. One of these, the giant oarfish (Regalecus glesne), is the longest bony fish alive, growing to up to 11 metres (36 ft) in length.

The common name oarfish is presumably in reference to either their highly compressed and elongated bodies, or to the former (but now discredited) belief that the fish “row” themselves through the water with their pelvic fins. The family name Regalecidae is derived from the Latin regalis, meaning “royal”. The occasional beachings of oarfish after storms, and their habit of lingering at the surface when sick or dying, make oarfish a probable source of many sea serpent tales.

Although the larger species are considered game fish and are (to a minor extent) fished commercially, oarfish are rarely caught alive; their flesh is not well regarded due to its gelatinous consistency. – excerpted from WikiPedia.com
