In the last 2 or 3 years I've rediscover my #hobby.
My love for #aquaristics has grew stronger and stronger. First I had 2 aquariums, then 3 and this is my biggest, the 4th one.
I've dreamed about having an #aquarium of at least 500 l for a decade or more.
Today my #wish finally came true.
I've been setting up my 540 l tank for the whole day and there's still a lot of work to do.
I'm really excited about how it will look in the future, can't wait to plant more plants and put the #fish in it 😀😀😀
Migaloo is currently Australia’s most well known humpback whale and was first sighted when he was known to be the only all white whale in the world. He was first spotted in 1991 and his birth year is estimated to be 1986, making him approximately 32 years old. At first, scientists had questioned whether or not Migaloo is indeed a true albino. His eyes are brown, rather than the typical red or pink coloration. However, his DNA had been studied in 2011 by marine researchers at Australia Marine Mammal Centre, confirming that Migaloo has a genetic variation linked to albinism. Before discovering that Migaloo is an albino, he was known as a “hypo pigmented” humpback.
Migaloo is part of the East Australian humpback population, with around 15-17,000 individuals as of 2012. His population, along with five others in the Southern Hemisphere, migrate north from Antarctica every year to give birth in tropical waters. Because Migaloo is such a unique and incredibly rare whale, he has a special Queensland & Commonwealth Government legislation enacted each year to protect him from harassment. Jet skiers and all vessels are prohibited from approaching Migaloo any closer than 500 meters, while aircraft cannot fly any lower than 2,000 feet. To break this law is a fine of $16,500.

The @ultumnaturesystems 60S is still doing great so far. If having a tank by a window scares you, just remember that you won’t have algae problems if you do lots of water changes, don’t over fertilize, and use CO2.
