Visit of the "Sea Life" aquarium in Bangkok. / Besuch des "Sea Life"-Aquariums in Bangkok.

Before the presentations of this year's SteemFest 4 started, we used the free time in Bangkok for some activities. Especially interesting, also for our little daughter, was the visit to the "Sea Life", which is the largest aquarium in Southeast Asia according to Wikipedia.

In the context of this impressive experience we could admire various fish species, from colorful, small clownfishes to mighty, grim-looking sand tiger sharks, but also turtles, starfish, snakes, frogs, African penguins and even otters.

Even if it doesn't apply in every individual case, many aquariums are rather spacious and offer their inhabitants comparatively good living conditions.

Obviously, quite some 'corals' are just plastic imitations. However, on the one hand this may reduce the aesthetics, but on the other hand it might serve to protect the real corals in the oceans ...

The only thing that really bothered me was the unnecessary background music, which was not switched off even during various performances, such as the ray feeding, so that the pitiful speakers were sometimes difficult to understand despite their microphones.

Although it was not at all easy to take reasonably sharp photos due to the prevailing light conditions and strongly reflecting panes, I hope that you like the following pictures!

Finally, if you are reading and maybe commenting this article, what about looking at this post of my wife, @kobold-djawa, too? It's not about receiving more upvotes, but I simply don't get it that under her article I see more bot than human comments! Has STEEM already become a pure 'ghost town' or still is a human community where people read what others have to say? At least I won't be writing for bots and auto voters only! So come onnn and start reading and communicating again - not only in Discord, also on the blockchain! :)

Bevor die Präsentationen des diesjährigen SteemFest 4 begannen, nutzten wir die freie Zeit in Bangkok für einige Unternehmungen. Besonders interessant, auch für unsere kleine Tochter, war der Besuch des "Sea Life", dem laut Wikipedia größten Aquarium Südostasiens.

Im Rahmen dieses beeindruckenden Erlebnisses konnten wir, vom farbenfrohen, kleinen Clownfisch bis zum mächtigen, grimmig dreinblickenden Sandtigerhai, vielerlei Fischarten, aber auch Schildkröten, Seesterne, Schlangen, Frösche, Brillenpinguine und sogar Otter bestaunen.

Auch wenn es nicht in jedem Einzelfall zutrifft, sind viele Aquarien relativ geräumig und bieten ihren Bewohnern vergleichsweise gute Lebensbedingungen.

Relativ viele 'Korallen' sind offensichtlich mehr oder weniger gut gelungene Kunststoffimitate. Was jedoch einerseits die Ästhetik mindert, dient andererseits aber möglicherweise dem Schutz der echten Korallen im Meer ...

Das Einzige, was mich wirklich störte, war die unnötige Hintergrundmusik, die sogar während diverser Vorführungen, wie z. B. der Rochenfütterung, nicht ausgeschaltet wurde, sodass die bemitleidenswerten Sprecher trotz Mikrofon teilweise nur schwer zu verstehen waren.

Obwohl es aufgrund der herrschenden Lichtverhältnisse und stark spiegelnden Scheiben überhaupt nicht einfach war, einigermaßen scharfe Fotos zu machen, hoffe ich, dass euch die folgenden Bilder gefallen!

Falls ihr diesen Artikel lest und möglicherweise kommentiert, wie wäre es damit, euch auch dieses Posting meiner Frau, @kobold-djawa, anzusehen? Es geht mir nicht um mehr Upvotes, aber ich begreife es einfach nicht, dass heutzutage auf dem STEEM unter einem gut gemachten Artikel ein Großteil aller Kommentare von Bots stammt! Ist der STEEM mittlerweile zu einer reinen 'Geisterstadt' geworden oder immer noch eine von Menschen bevölkerte Community, in der Menschen lesen, was andere zu berichten haben? Ich schreibe jedenfalls nicht für Bots und Autovoter ... also fangt wieder an zu lesen und zu kommunizieren - nicht nur im Discord, auch auf der Blockchain! :)


The 'orange clownfish' (Amphiprion percula) lives in symbiosis with corals that protect it with their netting tentacles, while the fish is defending the corals against their enemies.
In clownfish-groups, several males live together with one bigger female. If it dies, the largest male changes sex and becomes a female.
Der 'Echte Clownfisch' (Amphiprion percula) lebt in Symbiose mit Korallen, die ihn mit ihren nesselnden Tentakeln schützen, während er sie wiederum gegen ihre Feinde verteidigt.
In Clownfischgruppen leben mehrere Männchen mit einem sie an Größe übertreffenden Weibchen zusammen. Stirbt es, wechselt das größte Männchen das Geschlecht und wird zum Weibchen.



The 'red lionfish' (Pterois volitans) is very beautiful to look at, but at the same time dangerous, because the prickly rays of its dorsal fin contain a strong poison. Der 'Pazifische Rotfeuerfisch' (Pterois volitans) ist zwar 'pazifisch', aber keineswegs pazifistisch, denn die stacheligen Strahlen seiner Rückenflosse enthalten ein starkes Gift.

In contrast to the moray eels (family Muraenidae) I had seen before, this species is very colourful. Im Gegensatz zu den Muränen (Familie Muraenidae), die ich bisher gesehen hatte, ist diese Art sehr farbenfroh.

Bizarre-looking 'ribbon eel' (Rhinomuraena quaesita). Bizarr anmutende 'Nasenmuräne' (Rhinomuraena quaesita).

'Spotted garden eels' (Heteroconger hassi) live in burrows digged into sandy bottoms. 'Ohrfleck-Röhrenaale' (Heteroconger hassi) leben in in sandigen Boden gegrabenen Höhlen.

The family of the mostly monogamous living 'pipefish' (Syngnathidae) also includes the genus of sea horses (Hippocampus).
First piccture: 'Alligator pipefish' (Syngnathoides biaculeatus).
Second picture: 'big-belly seahorse' (Hippocampus abdominalis).
Zur Familie der meist monogam lebenden 'Seenadeln' (Syngnathidae) gehört auch die Gattung der Seepferdchen (Hippocampus).
Erstes Bild: Syngnathoides biaculeatus.
Zweites Bild: 'Dickbauchseepferdchen' (Hippocampus abdominalis).


The 'Japanese spider crab' (Macrocheira kaempferi) reaches a mass of nearly 20 kg and is the largest crab species existing today and at the same time the largest arthropod. Die 'Japanische Riesenkrabbe' (Macrocheira kaempferi) erreicht eine Masse von fast 20 kg und ist die größte heute existierende Krebsart und zugleich größter Gliederfüßer.



The 'Giant Pacific octopus' (Enteroctopus dofleini).
You want to know more about the intelligent cephalopods? Just read my article ... :)
Die 'Pazifische Riesenkrake' (Enteroctopus dofleini).
Ihr wollt mehr über die intelligenten Cephalopoden erfahren? Lest einfach meinen Artikel ... :)




As mentioned, the aquarium hosts not only fishes. Here you see for example an 'Argentine horned frog' (Ceratophrys ornata).
Wasn't there a similar looking card in the new Untamed edition of Splinterlands? :)
Wie erwähnt, beherbergt das Aquarium nicht nur Fische. Unten seht ihr beispielsweise einen 'Argentinischer Schmuckhornfrosch' (Ceratophrys ornata).
Gab es da nicht eine so ähnlich aussehende Karte in der neuen Untamed-Edition von Splinterlands? :)

Feeding of the 'Spotted eagle rays' (Aetobatus narinari). Fütterung der 'Gefleckten Adlerrochen' (Aetobatus narinari).



The 'largetooth sawfish' (Pristis pristis) can grow over 5 metres long and up to 30 years old. Der 'Gewöhnliche Sägefisch' (Pristis pristis) kann über 5 Meter lang und bis zu 30 Jahre alt werden.

If one walks through the 'ocean tunnel', one sees the impressive fish partly from below. Geht man durch den 'Ozean-Tunnel', sieht man die eindrucksvollen Fische teilweise von unten.


Finally some pictures of the impressive 'sand tiger sharks' (Carcharias taurus). It is a fascinating experience to see them slowly and majestically floating by. Zum Abschluss noch einige Bilder der imposanten 'Sandtigerhaie' (Carcharias taurus). Es ist ein faszinierendes Erlebnis, sie langsam und majestätisch an sich vorbeischweben zu sehen.

Some amazing marine wildlife photos here (and I know how difficult it is to take photos of anything living in a fish tank). I can see some large creatures there too so I hope the tanks were big enough for them. I used to be a very enthusiast aquarist myself but I must admit the older I am, the more controversial this whole concept (keeping aquatic animals in tanks) is for me... Especially after having lived by the sea for years where I have been able to observe the marine life (above and under the water) in its natural environment. I think it always depends on the keeper. Those who really love their animals surely do their best to make them as happy and comfortable as possible.

Btw, thank you for pointing out to your wife´s post. I didn´t know she is so active on Steem too. Just gave her a follow :)

Very good comment!

Yes, it's always the question if the positive or negative aspect of keeping large animals prevails.

The positive aspect can be that more people (especially children) learn to know and value the creatures and later try to help protecting them. Also some rare animals are cultured in zoological gardens.

And yes, true, the negative aspect is that the animals would have a much better life in their natural environments.

Yes, good points. There are more arguments that proponents of keeping animals in captivity often use, such as the fact that the animals are protected from predators and dangerous situations that they would have to face in their natural environment etc. On the other, the opponents argue that all creatures are always better off when left living their natural life and just following their natural instincts. I would say it depends on the particular animal (I believe some species can live happy lives in captivity when given proper care and living conditions) and the particular keeper and his or her attitude.

I remember from one of our previous conversations (I think it was under my post about scorpions) that you are a dedicated nature lover, just like me, so I wondered what your take on this thing is :)

Hab alles gelesen und vor allem alle Bilder angesehen. Wunderschön! Vor allem wenn man die Bedingungen im Aquarium bedenkt.
Die Unterwasserwelten sind total faszinierend, hab Dank fürs Teilen!

Very beautiful creatures. How expensive is the ticket to go there?
I wish I can see sea animals like this too someday. I only visited the zoo a loooong time ago, when I was still in school. It was the graduation trip.

wow sehr geile Bilder. Ich war selbst noch nie in so einem riesigen Aquarium. Schon beeindruckend was da unten so alles lebt. Einigen davon möchte ich nicht bei meinen Surf sessions begegnen :)

Danke für die schönen Bilder! Mit der Sea life Kette in Deutschland hat das aber nichts zu tun, oder?
Das mit den Kommentaren ist inzwischen wirklich eine Schande :/

Doch, ich denke, das ist dasselbe Unternehmen, das Standorte in vielen verschiedenen Ländern unterhält.

Danke für deinen Komemntar ... :)

Very wonderful "Sea Life" aquarium! I haven't ever visited there before.

Ah! A lot of beautiful photos with interesting information from you! I like them all.

It seems that these sea lives, especially the 'Japanese spider crab', can attract your little princess very much..... (as I can see from her eyes and her finger pointed at it!) It's really huge indeed.

It's great to see them closely through your photos. Thanks so much for sharing. Your post can inspire me to go there someday. ;)

Very wonderful "Sea Life" aquarium! I haven't ever visited there before.

As far as I know it's much cheaper for Thai people to visit the aquarium you should go there one day. :)

Yeah! I will go there one day. Many thanks for your information and for your suggestion. ;)

Angesichts der gelungenen Aufnahmen wird schnell klar, dass die herrschenden Lichtverhältnisse und spiegelnden Scheiben dir keinen Strich durch die Rechnung machen konnten, wobei deine Befürchtungen dahingehend deinen hohen Anspruch an dich selbst zeigen, der für dich spricht.

Was die "virtuelle Geisterstadt" angeht, könnte der Zustand was mit den ganzen "passionierten Downvotern" zu tun haben, deren Zahl hier jeden Tag zuzunehmen scheint und die nicht nur etlichen kleineren Usern das Leben schwermachen, sondern auch schon größere/bedeutendere Fische hier verjagt haben, so wie ich das beobachten konnte.Soziale User wie du und Balte (würde jetzt länger dauern, hier alle aufzuzählen) haben hier mit Sicherheit einiges abgefangen, Leute unterstützt und die Community davor bewahrt noch weiter zu schrumpfen, aber natürlich zieht diese "Downvote4Life-Philosophie" trotzdem Konsequenzen nach sich, die im Endeffekt wohl "nur" etwas abgemildert werden können.

Sehr schöne Bilder ... da hast Du dann ein paar neue Ideen für (Steem-)Monster erhalten :-)

:-)

It's a great shot, just looking at the pictures of these sea creatures is very beautiful, if you experience the aquarium must be even more amazing.

Thanks for your nice comment! :)

Wahrlich ein Feuerwerk der Farben!

Beautiful! Thanks for posting! Regards Chapper

Die Fotos sind sehr beeindruckend.
In den Aquarien sieht man eine eindrucksvolle Zahl an
unterschiedlichen Fischen.
Die Seenadeln sehen sehr originell aus.
Danke für deinen schönen Artikel.
Viele Grüße.

I missed the aquarium and now I regret it 😕 good photos BTW. I love the Japanese spider crab and I'm a long time fan of the giant pacific octopus.

In that case I guess my old article about cephalopoda could be interesting for you ...

Wunderschöne Fotos. Das war bestimmt toll, da würde ich auch mal gerne hin! WOW
