[Semi] Daily photo- Elusive Leviathan

Elusive Leviathan

A side benefit to insomnia, I get to see Leviathan (my High Fin Pleco) outside his castle. This was taken at 130am a few night ago.

[Semi] Daily Photo- Sea Turtle

Sea Turtle

Sea Turtle, Adventure Aquarium, Camden, New Jersey. May 2013.

This little guy- and little is relative when you realise how large they can get- is a permanent fixture at the Adventure Aquarium. Apparently he was badly injured when he was littler, and as a result, is not a strong swimmer, so would not survive on his own in the ocean. He's very photogenic- I'll share a few more photos of him in the next few days.}:P

For now, back to beading so I can get this new flower brooch finished.

Center In The Square gets aquariums!

The Center In The Square is a lovely facility in downtown Roanoke, Va. There's a science museum, a new butterfly habitat, Mill Mountain Theater, new rooftop gardens, a history museum, dance center, arts, and more. It's finishing up a multi year complete removation and reopens fully towards the end of this month.

If you live in the area, they need volunteers! Most especially for the Tank Team!

Center In The Square Aquariums


This is the main centerpiece, a 5500 gallon saltwater aquarium. It'll have 250 fish, living rock, 150 live soft and rocky corals, a few starfish that hitchhiked in on the rock from the ocean and is quite awesome to see. The glass is roughly 2.5-3" thick. Yes, glass, not acrylic.

One of the people Mark works for/with is a volunteer there and we got to see the tanks up close as they were adding fish.

Onward to the fish! )
