Self nomination. After significantly expanding this article over the past couple months, and responding to all suggestions at peer review (now archived on the article's talk page), I believe it is ready for the big time. I believe it meets all FAC criteria, treats its topics thoroughly yet succinctly, and is well written (of course I wrote most of it, so I have to say that!). Your comments are as valuable as your votes. Bantman 18:08, Jan 12, 2005 (UTC)

  • Support. I find this article has brilliant prose and gives a comprehensive account of the world of aquaria. I would like to see a small mention of the etymology of the word in the lead, though. Mgm|(talk) 09:55, Jan 13, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Yea for fish!!!--Boothy443 09:59, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Support Great work. Vaoverland 09:48, Jan 14, 2005 (UTC)
  • Looks excellent. However, it could be improved significantly by adding diagrams to illustrate aquarium design and possibly also the nitrogen and nutrient cycles. I'd draw, but I don't feel qualified in this area. (The text is informative, but it's hard to create useful visualizations without deeper understanding of the subject.)

    • One added, so I'll add an explicit support vote. Fredrik | talk 20:24, 14 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. This one's a slam dunk. Phils 20:49, 13 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Though I know almost nothing about the subject, it looks very well written and has references. Very nice work. - Taxman 03:40, Jan 14, 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Great. --ZayZayEM 12:50, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • Support. This was on peer review and all of my suggestions (and there were lots of them!) were carried out! The structure is fantastic now, the references great, the writing is superb and the information is interesting :-) I really like the photos too! All of them are GFDL (I think).

  • Support, but I would like to see a section devoted to educational and research functions of an aquarium, especially public ones. Revth 04:55, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. Great article. The only downpoint to it is the use of imperial measurements with SI units as alternatives. Jordi· 12:43, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Support. It would probably be better if more than one public aquarium was cited in the text examples. And it seems to be totally lacking a discussion of algae control--snails, algae-eaters (fish), and/or human scraping. Niteowlneils 21:13, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)
