Since I was little, I have always been captivated by the deep blue of the ocean and the life it houses. My passion for the environment and its conservation led me to study environmental sciences, a decision that expanded my understanding of the complexity of aquatic ecosystems and the importance of preserving them. My philosophy is simple: fish, although often seen as simple decorations, are living beings with complex needs and behaviors. I firmly believe that fish can be kept as responsible pets, as long as they are provided with an environment that mimics their natural habitat as closely as possible. This includes not only water quality and temperature, but also social structure and proper diet, without the stress of survival in the wild. The world of fish is, indeed, fascinating. With each discovery, I feel more committed to my mission of sharing this wonder and knowledge with the world.
