This site details the life that exists within a simple glass box of water: an aquarium. Combining the components of nature to, as effectively as possible, recreate a small, lush environment where plants, fish, invertebrates, etc., can coexist with the added help of a pair of human hands.
Aquariums offer us the proven ability to reduce stress in our every day lives and provide us the comfort of living alongside life in our typically static, inanimate boxes that we call home. In the day and age of technology, mechanization and money-making, it is a welcome distraction from the responsibilities and stresses that take us away from our roots and from nature. To live alongside life, not necessarily human companionship, but life that lives and breathes and causes us no further grief than that which we willingly subscribe to, is something that every being should welcome into their home.
