ACUAPROF recognizes the importance of aquatic life in our living environments and consequently, we share our practical knowledge as a great educational tool for kids. Aquariums are excellent examples which demonstrate what happens in our natural ecosystems. These are miniaturized systems that mimic nature’s ecosystems for aquatic life. All our species are thriving, growing and reproducing, year after year.
Our philosophy is to teach the kids of this generation, how and why, they must care for their environment, so in future, they will take the responsibility to prevent the extinction of aquatic life. We believe environmental education should be mandatory in basic schooling. By this, the kids of this generation and the next will become responsible men and women of this planet.

Putting aside all mythology, it is time to realize the benefits and make every effort to preserve Sharks in the oceans of the world.
Ideal Audience, Aquarium Clubs, Universities, Groups of interest
This presentation deals with the myths and truths about the controversial Altum Angels. With Frank’s solid background in Angel fish reproduction this presentation promises to excite the audience. Angelfish have been an all time favorite, and this presentation brings surprising findings from all over the world.
The last update in 2008 was by no other than Heiko Bleher, the legendary German explorer. Finally Frank and Heiko meet bringing the two experts together for the first time.
In this presentation, Frank describes this particular group of catfish from Africa. Through the presentation, concepts about ecology and preservation, as well as reproduction, are discussed in a simple manner making it affordable for any Aquarist, regardless of level of knowledge.
This presentation deals with the goldfish and its origins in old China. Varieties and the origin of the many strains available are also discussed, pointing out the importance of the goldfish as the real originator of our modern hobby.
Basic Elements and Marine Angels Part 1
This presentation deals with the indispensable elements necessary to build a marine ecosystem. Breaking away from the common mistakes and mythology surrounding this field of work, Frank explains in particular to the audience, how easy it is to keep and maintain saltwater fish and invertebrates, while following simple steps. Additionally, this presentation includes the first part of our series, “Angel fish Part 1” It deals with one group of Marine Angelfish, as well as the ongoing discussion of how to keep marine angel fish, healthy and perky for many years.
Piranhas and relatives
This presentation is about one of the most mythological freshwater creatures ever.
Piranhas had conquered the imagination of millions due to the manifestation of their well known ferocity at feeding time. In addition also discussed, are some close relatives of the piranha family, well known for their high level of aggression, or the complete opposite.
Plecos – the L numbers
This award winning presentation deals with the L numbers. The L numbers are titled after a proposed classification, using the L letter from Loricariidae family. Originating in Germany, the L classification helps to give to professionals, collectors and hobbyists, a sense of order, for the complex group formed by Loricariidae. As new discoveries are made in the South American rain forest, more species are added to the list and special mention is made in this presentation, of the reproduction and habits of the L 46 Zebra pleco.
Fresh water stingrays
Fresh water stingrays are fascinating creatures. Stingrays are fish that emerge from the oceans to conquer new territories in fresh water streams and rivers. This presentation provides the necessary information on how to keep these creatures. Reproduction is also discussed in detail. Lately, with their environment in danger, they have been migrating and seeking more favorable conditions. New studies show that the actual population of stingrays has increased in places like Europe and Japan.
These mollusks named tridacnas are among the most beautiful invertebrates in the world, displaying various colours in their mantles, making the keeping and propagation of these animals very desirable. Lately, there has been an explosion in the interest and commercialization of this group, either as a stand alone or as part of the reef systems. The presentation deals with the care and maintenance of tridacnas in full detail.
The most beautiful aquariums in the world
When science and art meet in the perfect combination, the results can be astounding. This presentation explains what it takes to reach the highest possible level in Aquariology. Some breathtaking aquariums from around the world were selected for this presentation. They will serve as an important reminder to Aquarists, young or old, that their dreams are all possible to achieve.
Fish reproduction is perhaps the most popular, yet challenging topic of Aquariogy.
In this presentation, all aspects of fish breeding are discussed, from foods, to tips and tricks, to mimicking the changes of the environment, which triggers the successful reproduction in fish. There will also be a discussion of fresh water shrimp reproduction.
