Brackish Water
BRACKISH WATER or BRINY WATER is water that has more salinity than fresh water , but not as much as seawater . It may result from mixing of seawater with fresh water, as in estuaries , or it may occur in brackish fossil aquifers. The word comes from the Middle Dutch root "brak". Certain human activities can produce brackish water, in particular civil engineering projects such as dikes and the flooding of coastal marshland to produce brackish water pools for freshwater prawn farming. Brackish water
Brackish water
is also the primary waste product of the salinity gradient power process. Because brackish water is hostile to the growth of most terrestrial plant species, without appropriate management it is damaging to the environment (see article on shrimp farms ). Technically, brackish water contains between 0.5 and 30 grams of salt per litre—more often expressed as 0.5 to 30 parts per thousand (‰), which is a specific gravity of between 1.005 and 1.010

Freshwater
FRESH WATER is naturally occurring water on Earth
Earth
's surface in ice sheets , ice caps , glaciers , icebergs , bogs , ponds , lakes , rivers and streams , and underground as groundwater in aquifers and underground streams. Fresh water is generally characterized by having low concentrations of dissolved salts and other total dissolved solids . The term specifically excludes seawater and brackish water although it does include mineral-rich waters such as chalybeate springs. The term "SWEET WATER" (from Spanish "agua dulce") has been used to describe fresh water in contrast to salt water . The term "fresh water" does not have the same meaning as potable water . Much of the surface fresh water and ground water is unsuitable for drinking without some form of purification because of the presence of chemical or biological contaminants

Neon Tetra
The NEON TETRA (Paracheirodon innesi) is a freshwater fish of the characin family (family Characidae ) of order Characiformes . The type species of its genus, it is native to blackwater or clearwater streams in southeastern Colombia , eastern Peru , and western Brazil , including the tributaries of the Solimões where the water is between 20 and 26 °C (68 and 79 °F). It is not found in the whitewater rivers of Andean origin. Its bright colouring makes the fish visible to conspecifics in the dark blackwater streams, and is also the main reason for its popularity among tropical fish hobbyists .

Freshwater Aquarium
A FRESHWATER AQUARIUM is a receptacle that holds one or more freshwater aquatic organisms for decorative, pet-keeping, or research purposes. Modern aquariums are most often made from transparent glass or acrylic glass . Typical inhabitants include fish, plants, amphibians, and invertebrates , such as snails and crustaceans. Tropical freshwater aquarium Freshwater fish may be either coldwater or tropical species. Although freshwater aquariums can be set up as community tanks , coldwater and tropical fish are generally not mixed due to incompatibilities in temperature requirements. Coldwater aquariums house goldfish and other species that do not require a heating apparatus. Warmer temperatures would actually increase their metabolism and shorten their lifespan. For a tropical fish tank, maintaining a warm environmental temperature ranging between 75 and 80 °F (24 to 27 °C) enables the fish to thrive

Paradise Fish
The PARADISE FISH, "'paradise-fish"', PARADISEFISH, or PARADISE GOURAMI (Macropodus opercularis) is a species of gourami found in most types of fresh water in East Asia , ranging from the Korean Peninsula to northern Vietnam . This species can reach a standard length of 6.7 cm (2.6 in), though most are only about 5.5 cm (2.2 in). Paradise gouramis were one of the first ornamental fish available to western aquarium keepers, having been imported 1869 to France by the French aquarium fish importer Pierre Carbonnier in Paris . The paradise fish is one of the more aggressive members of its family. It is more aggressive than the three spot gourami , yet less pugnacious in nature than the less commonly kept combtail

Public Aquarium
A PUBLIC AQUARIUM (plural: public aquaria or public aquariums) is the aquatic counterpart of a zoo , which houses living aquatic animal and plant specimens for public viewing. Most public aquariums feature tanks larger than those kept by home aquarists, as well as smaller tanks. Since the first public aquariums were built in the mid-19th century, they have become popular and their numbers have increased. Most modern accredited aquariums stress conservation issues and educating the public.

Guppy
The GUPPY ( Poecilia reticulata), also known as MILLIONFISH and RAINBOW FISH, is one of the world's most widely distributed tropical fish , and one of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish species . It is a member of the family Poeciliidae and, like almost all American members of the family, is live-bearing . Guppies, whose natural range is in northeast South America, were introduced to many habitats and are now found all over the world. They are highly adaptable and thrive in many different environmental and ecological conditions. Male guppies, which are smaller than females, have ornamental caudal and dorsal fins , while females are duller in colour. Wild guppies generally feed on a variety of food sources, including benthic algae and aquatic insect larvae . Guppies are used as a model organism in the field of ecology, evolution, and behavioural studies
