    Fowlr Aquariums (Fish Only With Live Rock)

    A fish-only-with-live-rock (Fowlr) aquarium is a excellent method to display some of the most vividly colorful and exciting saltwater fish species. A Fowlr aquarium also called a live rock aquarium are an addition to the saltwater-fish-only-aquarium, where live rock (either live or man made) is added as an aquascape to the tank to provide swim through's, hiding places, caves and tunnels for your saltwater fish but without live corals or marine invertebrates that the fish may eat. The live rock aquarium has advantages over a fish-only-aquarium. The live rock aquarium with its hiding places, swim through's, caves and tunnels helps the saltwater fish feel safe and stress free. The Fowlr aquariums addition of live rock provides a strong means of biological filtration. Fowlr aquariums typically are easier to keep, less expensive and less demanding than a coral reef aquarium.
