WILMINGTON, N.C. — Aquarium owners have been talking for years about the importance of keeping their aquariums and ponds clean.
But now, the latest aquarium trend is getting people to try a little bit of cleaning up, too.
The aquarium industry has been on the rise over the last few years, as consumers have become more adventurous and the need for aquarists to keep their plants healthy and safe has become more pressing.
Aquarium managers say they are trying to be more responsible with the water and their fish and that people need to take more care with their fish.
Aquarists are taking precautions to keep all their fish, including those that are raised on land, safe, but there are some who say that is a little too much.
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Environmental Management, the number of people killed in aquarium-related accidents increased by more than 50 percent between 2001 and 2012, from 4.7 to 8.2 deaths per 100,000 people.
A recent survey of aquarium owners by The Associated Press found that many aquarium owners were concerned that aquariums could become a breeding ground for wildlife.
“The trend of aquariums being a breeding site for wildlife is a serious problem, and I think it’s very difficult to tackle,” said Mark A. Smith, who is a marine biology professor at Virginia Tech and has been researching aquaria for more than 20 years.
“People need to realize that the best aquariums don’t breed with wild animals.
It breeds with humans.”
Aquariums need to be managed carefully, he said.
In the aquarium industry, the term “breeding ground” is a relative term.
When it comes to aquariums, aquarism is all about keeping the water clean, safe and abundant.
Aquas are often called “living ponds,” but there is no real breeding ground.
The water quality is good and the fish are healthy, but the water is not pure.
To keep fish healthy and healthy, Aquarium management is a big part of the equation.
Aqualife’s founder, Frank Fuchs, who started the company in the 1960s, said that the key to good aquarium management is keeping fish and their habitat as healthy as possible.
“The fish can’t live in a bad environment and they’re going to be able to live in an unhealthy environment,” Fuchs said.
“But they can live in the environment that they’re in.”
The Aquarium Association of North America is working to help aquarium owners with their aquarium maintenance needs.
The group, which has a long history of working to keep aquariums safe and healthy for their fish through programs like the American Aquarium, has recently developed a guide that explains what aquariums are supposed to do, and how to maintain them.
Smith said that if the owners of aquarium fish were to be careful, they could make sure they were keeping their fish safe.
But that does not mean the Aquarium Act requires them to be.
Smith said that many of the laws and regulations in the law were designed to protect the health and well-being of humans and wildlife.
