In addition to a line of aquarium coffee and end tables, AZOO also makes an aquarium dining table with a look-down glass top. Would you want to eat with your fish?
The Texas State Aquarium at Corpus Christi accidentally killed most of the fish in four of their indoor exhibits including their largest. The fish responded negatively to anti-fluke medication.
Big, beautiful coral colonies of all types stretching end to end with fat tangs and angelfish cruising leisurely through the reef. What's not to love?
Stony coral nubbins (tentatively identified as Porites lobata; see Figure 1) were exposed to light of the same intensity (128 µmolm²sec) but different spectra for 75 days. Growth rates were determined by weighing the fragments periodically with an analytical balance.
The new Apogonid is beautiful due as much to its colors as its lack of colors. C.melanogaster is recognizable for its striking pigmentation on its anterior half combined with its pigmentless, nearly transparent posterior half.
To entice visitors to contribute to conservation programs, Sea Life Aquarium (Auckland, New Zealand) has found a novel way to exploit octopus' ability to learn and perform tasks. They taught Rambo the octopus how to photograph aquarium patrons.
Filipe Oliveira's is a masterful aquascaper, and we always look forward to seeing his imagination at work. He uploaded a video of his latest aquascape: a gorgeous 3 week old 350 liter (90 gallon) planted aquarium. Who says a centered composition can't convey motion?

Biota Marine Life Nursery (Palau) has successfully hatched and reared clown triggers (Balistoides conspicillum), and the first batch of captive raised specimens is now available through livestock wholesaler Quality Marine.
UTS research has shown Spiny Chromis coral reef fish have the ability to compensate for the gender bias caused by rising ocean temperatures. While this is an important trait that could help constrain the impacts of ocean warming on reef fish populations and other species, there is a limit to this "transgenerational plasticity"
Dr. Tim Wijgerde shares with Advanced Aquarist this video of stony corals fluorescencing under blue light, including some time-lapse footage of neon SPS polyps contracting and expanding.
Harlequin Shrimps (Hymenocera elegans) are some of the coolest, weirdest, most beautiful shrimps in the world. Here's a pair of loitering Harlequins photographed by Mitchell Brown.
