Charles reviews the literature for interesting articles for aquarists.
In this editorial I want to talk to our readers about where we have been, where we are, and finally ask for suggestions about where we are going.
In this article I will explain that it is not always necessary that a heavy metal is toxic since this depends strongly on the form (=speciation) in which it is present. That is it is not always bio-available

The neon goby, Gobiosoma oceanops, is one of the largest species of the genus and probably the most common goby in marine aquariums. It is a cleaner species and even though of small size (2 to 3 inches as adults) the neon goby does well in a community tank.
This article expands on the basis of the claim that limewater may be able to deliver lower quantities of some metals compared to calcium reactors and it also provides some experimental data that demonstrates this claim.
Of course, these piscine jewels command big bucks! But if you are really in to the odd and want to display a fish in your aquarium that will break the ice at your neighborhood parties, then why not attempt to acquire a Rhinopias!
This pair of longnose hawkfish (Oxycirrhitus typus) rarely separate for any length of time.
I was particularly motivated to write this article after overhearing a local petshop employee telling a potential customer that they were a hardy addition to any reef aquarium.
I think the overall attitude about them would change if people kept them long enough (in a separate tank of course) to get to know them. I will give a brief background on them and describe their husbandry requirements for people who would actually like to keep them around.
Causal relationships in a reef tank are complex, and answers come slowly, but they do come. The continual search for answers is why we here.
This information is presented to give you, as a concerned aquarist, an idea of the complexity and sheer volume of possibilities inherent in the aquatic environment.
J. Daniels has a lot of changes taking place in his aquarium!
In this article I will discuss some basic issues to consider when providing circulation in the reef aquarium.
