Unlike the mountains or the deserts, the oceans are places that can’t be visited whenever you want. To be able to see a part of it – the part that is full of beauties and amazing things, the best thing to do is to become a diver. However, that’s not just for everyone as many people are afraid of the water, even if they’d love to see the underwater landscapes. For those people, there are aquariums with tropical fish and dolphinariums with dolphin, whales or other marine creatures that you can see.
If you’re ready to visit the reefs and the underwater environment, scuba diving is a great activity that you can do. However, it’s not an easy thing to do, because it can still be dangerous, no matter how much experience you might have.
Let’s see some tips and tricks that could help you see the ocean and still have a great experience.
Whatever you do, planning is the key. Every experienced diver knows that a good plan is mandatory before every dive. It doesn’t matter if you dive for the first time or for the thousandth time – planning is essential for your safety.
The Safety of the Equipment
Check out your diving equipment within a week before diving. You need to make sure that the equipment has been serviced and that it was maintained properly. Don’t forget to check out the underwater torch and the batteries for your diving computer. Once you get to your diving destination, check out the equipment once again, to make sure that it’s working properly. If it’s possible, you should always have backup equipment in case something goes wrong. If you’re diving with someone else, check out your partner’s equipment and ask him to check out yours. It’s a great safety measure, in case you overlooked something.
The New Equipment
You might be impatient to take your new equipment for scuba diving and check a reef, the tropical fish, or the underwater landscape in a new area. However, don’t use it the moment you buy it. Make sure you test everything in a controlled environment to make sure it’s working properly. You can test it in a swimming pool or during an easy shallow dive. It’s a great safety measure as you could struggle with your new equipment during a deeper dive, especially if you’re not used to it.
Before any dive, you need to be aware of the sea conditions. Everything is important, both the surface and the underwater conditions. The temperature of the water will determine the type of wetsuit you should wear, as an uncomfortable suit might compromise your safety.
In the end, it’s important to plan only a dive within your diving limits. If you’re just a beginner in scuba diving, go for easy dives and always keep a log with everything that you’ve done during the dive.
The ocean is one of those places that people have not conquered yet, well, not totally anyway. The underwater world can still keep its secrets from us, but small amounts of beauties will still reach our mundane existence. We’re talking here about aquariums – those big or small tanks full with water where fish can live in a controlled environment. The fish, however, are mostly tropical fish, as those are the ones that attract the eye and represent the beauties of the underwater world.
The Aquariums and Dolphinariums
As you certainly know, there are different types of aquariums – there are those very big aquariums that you find in dolphinariums, but there are also smaller aquariums, for residential usage.
When you plan to see dolphins and other sea creatures, the aquariums, and the dolphinariums are the best choices. You’ll get to see them in a controlled environment, in a special location where specialized people know how to take care of them. Some of these places are real sanctuaries, as the animals were rescued or they were found on shores.
For the tropical fish, these are not always endangered species, but they represent a part of the beauty of the ocean. There are hundreds of species and the specialists know how to arrange the aquariums, to offer them a similar environment to their natural one.
If you want to bring this amazing world into your home, you can always get an aquarium and populate it with tropical fish. There are plenty of tutorials on the internet, and the seller from the pet shop will also be able to tell you several tips and tricks about this.
However, if you’ve never had one before, it’s better to start with something small and easy to maintain. You can have a tropical fish in a round bowl of glass – the famous single golden fish, but make sure it’s a lonely species, or you can have a small aquarium with just a few fish in it.
You’ll need light for the water tank (special neon light), you’ll need a device that oxygenates the water, and you’ll also need to feed the fish along with cleaning their environment. If you think that’s too much, you might consider a single golden fish, because taking care of an aquarium, even if it’s small, can be quite demanding.
Don’t forget that these should be treated like any other pet – you need to care for them and also take care of them, so make sure you know what it takes before getting an aquarium.
