Hobbyists using a light-measuring device for the first time will probably be surprised at how rapidly the light field can change within an aquarium.
Jake continues his series on Atlantic stony corals.
Too often marine macro algae are only considered to be part of an aquarium's filtration system.
The following article will examine some husbandry techniques for this exotic coral.
Feature Article: Granular Activated Carbon, Part 2: Modeling of Operational Parameters for Dissolved Organic Carbon Removal from Marine Aquaria
Chemistry Department, The Pennsylvania State University. In Part 2, the authors will discuss the results of their research and make some recommendations to the aquarist on its usage.
I've often been asked what is a science, or what is the scientific method?
This month, our readers give tips on breeding livestock.
How can a hobbyist decide how to set up their tank if they don't have an idea on how the water will move in the tank?
The information in this article is by large the result of my 22+ years of experience observing these animals in my own tanks, as well as tracking the results obtained by other hobbyists during that time.
Feature Article: Coral Coloration, Part 9: Tridacna and Other Photosynthetic Clam Coloration, With Observations on Possible Functions
This month, we will continue our observations of marine invertebrate coloration with a slightly different subject - that of the impressive appearance of photosynthetic clams.
These animals are generally hardy in captivity and can grow rather quickly, making them attractive to beginning and intermediate reefkeepers.
Feature Article: Granular Activated Carbon, Part 1: Modeling of Operational Parameters for Dissolved Organic Carbon Removal from Marine Aquaria
Chemistry Department, The Pennsylvania State University. In this first part of a two part series, the authors will introduce granular activated carbon and explain the experimental goals and mathematical models used in their research.
