Video : Designing Aquariums
Specializing in saltwater aquariums, Nic Tiemens and Joe Pineda love the challenge of recreating a slice of the ocean indoors. They face the challenge of building sustainable homes for aquatic life, while meeting the obstacles of aquarium shape designs, space limitations, proper heating, and fish biology. In order to build their aquariums to the unique demands of their clients, they use a combination of math for volume calculations, temperature, and measurement); science for natural fish habitats and individual fish tolerance levels; and art for their designs.
