Could someone please explain why aquarists claim they do not need to
worry about hauling even large fish up from great depths, as far as
the usual diver's problem of bends is concerned? They do sometimes
have to puncture the air bladder, but that is something else. Why is
there no need to be concerned about dissolved nitrogen ? Thanks for
any help, or a pointer to a reference on the subject.
