At this year’s Aquatic Experience Expo, Oliver Lucanus, a German-born writer and photographer obsessed with the beauty and wonder of the underwater world, will deliver a special presentation on how to keep rheophiles, fish that love strong currents found in rivers, waves, and ocean waters, happy in aquarium environments. Since fish are highly adaptable creatures, many people assume that they can provide a standing water environment for these motion-loving fish but this talk will examine the right habitat needed and popular aquarium fish from riverine environments that can thrive in a tank environment under the right conditions
With over 25 years of experience of dedicating his life to exploring rivers, lakes, and the flooded forests of South America, Lucanus’ most recent book, The Amazon Below Water, aids in illustrating the natural habitat of fish and plant life. With something for all fish hobbyists and enthusiasts, this talk will focus on where the fish in our tanks come from and how to aid in providing the best life possible in a home aquarium.
With a specialization in rheophiles, Lucanus’ work has been published worldwide in a variety of industry books and magazines. Don’t miss this presentation sure to be chockfull of great information on this new dimension of keeping fish in a more natural way that mimics their home environments.
