Give a list of the Science(s) of aquariums

I was sitting around last night while looking at the tank and It dawned on me
all the different sciences that are involved in maintaining an aquarium. Yes ... Yes... these are the things science teachers think of

So go ahead and share with us the sciences you think are involved with aquariums. I'd like to see what feedback you have and I'll share it with my students.

Ecology. (the type of science were on in science ) I actually enjoyed science class when we discussed symbiotic relationships. Mutualism, Commensalism, Parasitism. Commensalism- when one organism is benefited while the other is not affected. (clownfish and anemones) Pretty interesting.

Awesome ... and thanks for the responses thus far. I'll share this with my students on Monday.

In reality, maintaining an aquarium consists of a multitude of sciences.

Chemistry both Organic and Inorganic
pH, water chemistry, solubility, oxidation / reduction, nitrogen cycle, diffusion, ions

Physics both Mechanical and Energy
Aquarium lighting, Heat transfers / Heat exchange, water pressure, flow rates

Biology - Fish, inverts, microbiology, algae, plants, marine bio.

Geology - Sand, Gravels, Rocks, water (hydrology, Oceanography)minerals,
evaporation, airpressure

Just to name a few.

Don't forget art, which mixes with the sciences.

Genetics can also come into play, along with climatology, genetics and medical arts. They all mix together.

Aqualogy?
