    When you think of having an aquarium, goldfish, starfish and the colourful cast of Finding Nemo probably swim through your mind, but have you ever considered owning a slug? Have you ever thought a slug could be one of the most beautiful things in your place? Probably not.. Well just take a look at these fascinating creatures.

    Looking like they’ve just been ripped out of some kind of sci-fi film or an art gallery, they’re absolutely beautiful, brilliantly coloured and so uniquely interesting. They do come at a price though, but nevertheless, they’re absolutely worth it. Nudibranch’s, Chromodoris Lochi’s and Cyerce Nigricans are just some of the species of sea slugs that come in all kinds of shapes, patterns and colours.

    There’s such a variety to choose from and can be a great addition to the rest of your aquarium species. But don’t just think about sea slugs, there are so many other unique sea creatures you can house in your aquarium. We’ll be happy to sit down with you and show you all the amazing options. They’re an exceptional feature to have in your place that you’ll want to show off to all your guests. However, as beautiful as they are, they are very difficult  to maintain and they do require specialist advice in choosing the type suitable for your aquarium as well as maintaining them healthy and happy. If they are not taken care properly they have very reduced chances to survive in an aquarium. For example, unlike fish, slugs would rather starve to death than change their eating habits. They are also very sensitive and fragile to fluctuations in water temperature and quality. If you are up for a challenge and want your aquarium to host this amazing creatures Aquarium Architecture are here to help.
