Frankie Flowers Tuesday Tip of the Day!

Wrong soil:  That $1.99 bag may look like a good deal but if used in a container will kill your plants (from root rot).  For pots choose soils formulated for containers or potting soil.  However remember most container and potting soils are soilless mixes meaning you need to fertilize.

AquaDome, the largest Cylindrical Aquarium Elevator

This is the largest Cylindrical Aquarium Elevator in the world, the AquaDom. The AquaDom can be found in Berlin at the Radisson SAS Hotel lobby.

The glass tube in the hotel lobby is called AquaDom. It is the largest acrylic cylinder in the world, filled with about 900,000 liters of seawater. There even is an elevator inside the aquarium.

It’s considered the largest of its kind to be built and stands at 25 meters tall and is filled with roughly 900,000 liters of sea water which is home to 2600 fish of 56 different species, artificial colorful corals and rock formations. It has a a diameter of over 11 meters, built on a 9 meters tall concrete foundation.

There are various employees working daily inside the cylinder maintaining it and feeding the tropical sea fish.

It isn’t necessary to be a deep sea diver to enjoy the views at the bottom. A visitor can simply take the glass elevator ride through the middle of the aquarium from the bottom to the top to reach the sightseeing point and panoramic restaurant under the glass roof.

The elevator slides up and down in the middle of the cylinder allowing the visitors to take a quick look into the aquarium from a different angle.

There’s enough work for the divers who work daily in the AquaDome, inch by inch is being cleaned while visitors pass by in the elevator.

The AquaDom opened in 2003 and cost around 12.8m euros to build. The aquarium is built with synthetic glass and designed by the architect Sergei Tchoban. It is now the main attraction of the Berlin Sea Life Center. The feeding of the fish and the cleaning of the fish tank is performed daily by a pair of full-time divers.

The result is an amazing design and concept although one can argue about the huge amount of sea water that’s being used in this aquarium and the ecological effects, but spectacular it is.

Sun Protection Fact!

Did You know?

Even animals practice sun protection! Chimpanzees avoid the midday sun and  hippos secrete a pink-colored oil that acts like a sunscreen to protect their skin from sunburn.
