Ghost Shrimp, also called Glass Shrimp, are one of the highest populating shrimp. Ghost Shrimp are scavenger feeders and will accept a wide variety of foods. They are omnivorous and will naturally feed on brush algae and fallen food. Ghost Shrimp are primarily translucent, small and highly active. Ghost Shrimp do an excellent job of cleaning rotting debris and algae; reducing ammonia ppm.
These marine species inhabit mostly coastal water. They like warmer water and they dwell in anywheres from zero feet all the way down to sixteen thousand feet. They do have many predators so they always have to be on the defense. Some of their predators include sunfish, sea turtles, tuna, butterfish, spiny dogfish, and blue rockfish. Even though jellyfishes do have tentacles that release nematocysts which injects the animal with toxins, it does not stop animals from eating it because some animals are immune to their sting.
Many butts. The relationship between the host and the worm with many butts is unknown. We aren’t sure if it is a beneficial relationship, like that between sharks and pilot fish (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilot_fish) or if the worm is slowly killing the sea sponge. It seems that, either way, the branched butts absorb nutrients to support itself. It makes sense, because how can one head feed that large a body?
This prompted me to research the health benefits and the disadvantages of buying and preparing farm raised tilapia. There were definitely some learned facts that would make one question whether or not they really ever wanted to consume a fish that was not caught in the open sea. Farm raised fish (not just tilapia) are said to have a much lower lever of Omega fats. Many farmed fish are being fed genetically modified corn and soy. Because farmed fish are raised in close quarters it makes them more susceptible to disease and illnesses.
Both a crab and a lobster have different and similar traits. One similar trait is that both animals are invertebrates. It is amazing how a crab sizes is up to 16 inches. While a lobster’s sizes is up to 3.5 feet long. Lobsters are a ten-legged crustacean, and have poor eyesight.
Starting with the food chain in Chesapeake bay, the plants and algae play the basis role in food chain. They make their own food by sunlight. These plants and algae are bay grass and free floating algae. The plants and algae not only feeds all other organisms in the water but also gives homes and shelter for other organisms. Frogs lay their eggs on the bay grass, giving the tadpoles a home.
the fish i am using for my experiment is an oranda goldfish. they can reach sizes of upto 10 to 12 inches. they will become ill above 75 degrees (lynn, jennifer).ph should be between 6 to 8 which is the acidity in the water. the goldfish eat worms shrimp vegetables and other things.the oranda goldfish are long lived fish but are delicate fish (jennifer
The L. olivacea is named after it’s olive and gray colored shell while the L. kempii is grayish green. The L. olivacea has heart-shaped top shell and the L. kempii has a nearly circular one. Their diets, while sharing a few favorites like crabs, fishes, and mollusks, mainly consist of their own preferences. The L. olivacea feeds on algae, lobster, tunicates, and shrimp while the L. kempii is more selective with only jellyfish on top of the foods they share. Their nutritional desires also reflect the environments they inhabit.
These birds were listed as endangered on March 11, 1967 and also rely on the basin for crayfish to eat. In addition to birds, plenty of fish can be found in the basin and fishermen frequent the basin in search of Tilapia (3). Tilapia can be found by the hundreds in the basin along with corvina and an occasional striped bass, mullet, croaker, or sargo (3). The endangered pupfish, though rare, also rely on the basin for survival (10). Pupfish are also the only native species in the Salton Sea, thriving in shallow bodies of water with a high salt and heat
