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.
It's that time of year again when the Marine Aquarium Societies of North America announces their annual scholarships for college undergraduates and graduate students.
"Reefs Illuminated" is an original short film about reef bioluminescence and biofluorescence directed by Brennan Vance and shot by the science-art team Luminescent Labs. The film is now showing at the American Museum of Natural History (New York City) until May 3, 2013.
Popularly known as "leafies," these beautiful cousins of seahorses are the subject of a new breeding lab in San Diego, California thanks to a $300,000 grant.
This would wig anyone out: reeling in your catch and suddenly a shark breaches next to your kayak!
3reef.com member 'diverdan' installed a rather unique system for his client. He took the concept of the "Zero Edge" overflowing aquarium and made an entire stone fountain wrapped around a fish tank.
Dana provides a very in-dept look at the Tunze Nanostream pumps, their flow characteristics, and water velocities and compares them to various water velocity zones found on reefs.
We try not to exaggerate with our reporting here at Advanced Aquarist, but I think it's safe to say the upcoming Pacific Sun Ariel lighting system is a monster. How big of a monster is it, you ask? 870 watts of LED power plus 324 watts of T5s (nearly 1200 watts!)
Prized as delicious food (?!), snakelock's anemone was recently successfully captive bred by the University of Granada spin-off, iMare Natural S.L. in Spain.
The New York Aquarium at Coney Island was devastated by Hurricane Sandy to the tune of approximately $65 million in damages. It's been closed ever since the storm made landfall, but the Wildlife Conservation Society says they plan to partially reopen the aquarium in a little over a month.
A new study has found that pollution from fine particles in the air – mainly the result of burning coal or volcanic eruptions – can shade corals from sunlight and cool the surrounding water resulting in reduced growth rates.
Marine debris from the March 2011 Japanese tsunami is still washing up on distant shores. Last month (two years and ten days after the tsunami), a Japanese fishing skiff finally came ashore 5,000 miles away on a Washingon State beach. To scientists' surprise, a single reef fish survived the two year boat-ride!
Isolated coral reefs can recover from catastrophic damage as effectively as those with nearby undisturbed neighbours, a long-term study by marine biologists from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (CoECRS) has shown.
Tiny sea creatures no bigger than a thumbtack are being credited for playing a key role in helping provide healthy habitats for many kinds of seafood, according to a new study by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science and U.S. Geological Survey.
