Every week, he buys the fresh Arctic Ocean water from the market and takes care of the sea with LED light and other artificial tools. Spending the hours which he cannot go out with electric power consumption, he cradles the sea when he wants to look at the sea. The sea will faithfully offer you with its visual scenery.
