This nano reef tank proves you can accomplish big things with just a few elements within a small space. We don't have any details about this aquarium. All we know for certain is it's beautiful.
What would you do if your beloved fish developed a swim bladder disease and could no longer swim upright?
By learning how to slow-freeze frog embryos for the first time, scientists believe they will be able to cryo-preserve fish embryos in the near future, thus saving their DNA for posterity. Sounds awfully reminiscent of Jurassic Park, doesn't it?
Scientists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have discovered why Heteroxenia corals pulsate. Their work, which resolves an old scientific mystery, appears in the current issue of PNAS.
Coral reefs are stressed the world over and could be in mortal danger because of climate change. But why do some corals die and others not, even when exposed to the same environmental conditions? An interdisciplinary research team from Northwestern University and The Field Museum of Natural History has a surprising answer.
Conventional reefkeeping wisdom says live corals should not coexist with big angelfish and butterflyfish. Don't tell that Bryn Roberts. With careful selection of fish, corals, and invertebrates, Bryn pushes the boundaries of "reef safe." Large, colorful coral colonies thrive in the presence of rare angels and butterflies.
Our staff is busy prepping our next magazine article to publish tomorrow: A featured reef aquarium from the UK that is guaranteed to impress fish and coral lovers alike. To whet your appetite for reef eye candy, here is a video of another beautiful aquarium: The Italian reef of 'Gionanni57.'
How might you ask? It all boils down to the squid beak's physical properties and how it attaches to soft tissue.
Richard Wright won two common goldfish at a 1977 Gloucestershire funfair. He named the pair Splish and Splash, not expecting them to survive more than a few months. But they did, and they kept on living to become the UK's oldest goldfish. Sadly, Splish passed away earlier this month, leaving Splash all alone for the first time in over three decades.
A new research published this month finds that cobia, a large tropical fish, have remarkable resistance to end-of-century acidification projections. However, even mild acidification changes their physiology. Like previous studies which found acidification effects the hearing of clownfish, cobia's inner ear changes significantly when they are raised in higher CO2 concentrations.
While training at Sataya Reef (Egypt), professional kitesurfer Manuela Jungo happens upon a large pod of dolphins. The video contains Red Sea corals, sohal tangs, dolphins, and a woman in a bikini. What more can you ask for? Happy Friday, everyone!
The filming for an episode for FTK's second season will happen on April 20th at the grand opening of Allpets Emporium in Coral Springs, Florida.
Last year, we reported that researchers were developing a team of small “coralbots" with swarm intelligence to autonomously search out damaged coral fragments and attach them to hard substrate. The inventors are now seeking public donations through Kickstarter to fund coralbot development.
There are several species of giant clam available to us, all of which belong to the family Tridacnidae, with each being unique in its own ways. Of these, Tridacna squamosa, is one of the hardiest and easiest to care for, and can be one of the most attractive, too. So, this month I'll give you some information about T. squamosa, which is commonly called the squamosa clam, scaly clam, scaled giant clam, or fluted clam.
If you want to see what an aquarist can achieve with 50 gallons (192 liters) of seawater, here is your benchmark. You owe it to yourself to watch Pedro's latest video in HD (720p at minimum). The only thing that is higher quality than the video production is Pedro's tank itself.
