Critters - Visible And Microscopic Organisms That Naturally Occur In Our Ponds And Aquariums

This is just a quick blog to be a permanent home to all the links I have to some good sites that already cover this topic very well.






Here's a new link I just got from the AquariaCentral.com forums.  It even has lots of pictures. (Thanks jpappy789)

Here's another new link from an AC thread... (Thanks Phosaurus)

These next three very good resources are no longer found with a *normal* internet search as the websites have closed down for various reasons... most likely due to the world economy. Fortunately, the Internet Archive Wayback Machine saves/archives copies of almost all websites so you can still see the original content of the sites. They may take a little longer to fully load on your computer, especially sites with lots of pictures. See my blog about the Internet Archives Wayback Machine by clicking the link under "Labels" on the right.




Now, while many of the above critters are visible to the naked eye, many others will only be visible using a microscope.  Here's a simple and concise article on "Selection and Use of a Microscope for Aquarists by Bob Blaho" - http://www.aquarticles.com/articles/management/Blaho_Microscope_for_Aquarists.html

I'll be back to add more to this blog later! ;-)

World Flag Counter added April 14, 2010 and U.S. State's Flag Counter added April 22, 2010

World Flag Counter added April 14, 2010 so the numbers are artificially low by over 10,000 hits (pageviews) based on Google's Adsense numbers. I'm only showing the top 60 countries but if you want to see the full list, open the FlagCounter in a new tab/window and you can then navigate around to see a Map, List, etc. The "Visitors" number is based on unique visitors so this counter does not re-count the same person who visits again. free counters Free counters!
