Anti-aquarium activists Robert Wintner (AKA Snorkel Bob) is teaming up with filmmakers Paula Fouce and Michael Flores to produce a full-length, self-described "entertaining exposé" to attack the marine aquarium hobby.
Advanced Aquarist readers surely know what coral bleaching is, but few of us have ever seen the process in action. A new study records how the LPS long-tentacle plate coral, Heliofungia actiniformis, actively (and rapidly) sheds zooxanthellae.
Studies about the effects of warming waters and acidification on fish have focused on their direct physiological impact. But a new study links the food chain to show that climate change can malnourish fish by stunting the zooplankton (e.g. copepods) they feed on.
We shared this beauty in 2014, and the reef is only getting more amazing with age. Viking's 2000 liter (~525 US gallon), 300x80x80cm (120x32x32") aquarium is simply jaw-dropping, and we have four minutes of 4K video to prove it.
Fallicambarus schusteri is the newest described crayfish from the Americas. The new burrowing species was discovered, surprisingly, along seasonally-flooded roadside ditches.
Here are two hours of ultimate relaxation featuring the left half of one of the world's best public aquaria reef exhibits. Set it to full-screen HD and let your week's stresses melt away.
This is Metapontonia scorpio, a weird, new species of symbiotic coral shrimp from Taiwan. The tiny pill-shaped shrimp features an unique tail that can turn upwards like a scorpion's tail.
A new research has uncovered a fascinating way some reef fish may be able to adapt (to an extent) to ocean acidification. The reef chromis, Acanthochromis polyacanthus, adapts to higher CO2 levels by altering its circadian rhythm genes to essentially think it's always nighttime.
The original NoClean Aquarium, introduced in 2012, is a small one-gallon tank featuring a built-in auto-starting siphon for quick and easy water changes. NoClean is now preparing to launch a larger two-gallon version in a new fish-bowl form factor.
Something is killing invertebrates of all types (corals, starfish, urchins, clams, sponges, etc.) at an alarming rate in East Flower Garden Banks (Gulf of Mexico) ... and scientists have yet to identify the cause.
Hemigrammus aguaruna is a lovely new species of tetra from the western Amazon basin in Peru and Colombia, South America.
We're always excited to share updates about this 660 gallon reef aquarium famous for its lush mix of SPS, soft corals, and gorgonians as well as the huge zebra moray eel that patrols its waters. A new video shows just how spooky beautiful the reef has become.
When we think "zoantharians," we think of colorful colonies of hundreds of polyps - like fields of flowers. But scientists have discovered a new, unique species of Japanese zoa that lives alone.
Quality Marine (wholesaler) provided us with a press release announcing that the first ever aquacultured Stonogoniops yasha are on the way. These little gobies are some of our favorites, so it's awesome to see them added to the growing list of commercially available aquacultured reef fish.
Scorpaenodes barrybrowni is the newest described venomous scorpionfish from very deep (95-160 meter = 310-525 feet) vertical walls at Curaçao, Caribbeans. As we've come to expect of deep-water reef fish, S.barrybrowni is extremely colorful.
