1. The Ambon Scorpion is difficult to confuse with other species of fish. It can be easily recognized by the unusual growths above the eyebrows. In addition, fish is able to perfectly camouflage themselves, changing color under the environment. Was opened in 1856 and is a well studied fish species. (Roger Steene/Conservation International)

It is clear that the larva of bloodsuckers future only grows in water that is suitable for its development.
Usually the female lays eggs in ditches, marshes, ponds, wet basements, sewers and other suitable water bodies. It is best for the development of mosquito larvae use lukewarm water with a high level of bacterial contamination caused by rotting organic waste. Best in 7-10 days from time of egg laying we can get a flying adult, ready for further reproduction and increase the population.
Large quantities of mosquitoes can become a serious problem, and some of their species are spreading dangerous diseases such as malaria and fever.

As the name implies, freshwater aquarium – fresh water, as in most rivers and lakes in the world. Coldwater and tropical aquariums – two most frequently purchased in the UK species of freshwater aquariums.
As a rule, in cold-water aquarium heater is not necessary. The water temperature in the tank will be close to ambient. If the temperature in the room changes frequently, you will need a heater to compensate for temperature changes. To cold-water fish are cardinals, and various types of goldfish. Often cold-water aquariums are recommended for beginners and aquarists with a small budget, but it should be noted that goldfish need an aquarium considerably larger than for tropical species.
