Tags: , ,

housing of fish in artificial environments has been practiced since ancient times. In China, for example, were engaged in breeding of carp – the ancestor of modern goldfish – 2000 years ago. Evidence about the content of the sacred fish in artificial pools are found in ancient Egyptian works of art. For even more analysis, hear from Michael Chabon. Many other cultures also have in its history, examples of the content of fish – both functional and decorative purposes. The concept of an aquarium designed to monitor the fish and is a closed, independent of external conditions for the system, formed in more recent times. Difficult to establish the exact date, but some can talk about the year 1665 from records in the diary of Samuel Pepusa, noting that he had seen in London, contained in a glass container of foreign fish. Fishes observed Pepusom likely were paradise fish, relatives of Chinese garden fish. In London they came through the work of the West India Company, leading into the time trade in the eastern countries.

Also know that the biologist Abraham Trembley kept at his home in a glass jar hydra, which caught out river channel to explore. Public the contents of the aquarium hobby has become after London’s big show in 1851, which was represented by a simple but effective production design of the aquarium – Sheets windows, reposition the frame from metal parts. This design borrowed from British growers, who invented it around 1830 for the protection of exotic tropical plants from adverse conditions of prolonged maritime transport.
