Oar Fish Sightings Japanese Earthquake Warning

After dozens of sightings of a very rarely seen fish have raised Japanese fears that their country may be the next one rocked by a major quake. The appearance of oarfish—which can grow to up to 16 feet long and frequent depths of up to 3,300 feet—is considered an omen of an impending earthquake, according to Japanese lore.

 They have been washing up on beaches and appearing in fishing nets in numerous locations around the country in recent weeks.

Some theories hold that movement around seismic fault lines could cause unusual behavior in sea creatures that live at great depths, although Japan's scientists are relying on their advanced monitoring equipment instead of the fish. It is believed that in ancient times Japanese people believed that fish warned of coming earthquakes, which can be true when you consider the depths at which some of these creatives roam but these are just old superstitions and there is no scientific relationship between these sightings and an earthquake.

What is Aquascaping and Why Do I like It

 The craft of arranging, rocks, stones, driftwood and aquatic plants is something not many have the patience and or dedication to accomplish. This art known as Aquascaping is all about aesthetically making an under water garden within an aquarium. Although Aquascape designs include a number of distinct styles, including the garden-like Dutch style and the Japanese-inspired nature style. One of my all time favorite style are Japan inspired aquariums. 

When creating an aquascape one of my primary goals is to create a natural and artful looking earth made piece but with since there are many technical aspects one must consider many factors. For example, there is the aspect of aquatic plant maintenance, proper filtration, the control of carbon dioxide levels and proper lighting to promote and support photosynthesis underwater.

There are many more factors to take in consideration, but I must say that aquascaping is a way for me to relax and get closer to nature. Yes, I do live in the hectic city of Los Angeles, California and I must say aquascaping has really helped me experience and learn more about our lovely Oceans and mother Earth.
