By James W. Fatherree, M.Sc. on Jul 18, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Crinoids are rather elegant relatives of the brittle stars, sea stars, and sea urchins, and can be quite spectacular in appearance. You might see them offered for sale at times, but as pretty as they may be their survival record in home aquariums is downright dismal. However, they're interesting invertebrate animals nonetheless, so I'll give you some information about them, and will also cover the reasons they typically do not survive long-term in home aquariums.

Feature Article: Zooxanthellae: Biology and Isolation for Scientific Study

By Tim Wijgerde on May 01, 2013 at 11:00 AM

The mutualistic symbiosis between corals and zooxanthellae is a well-known fact amongst aquarists.

This article will provide an overview of zooxanthellae biology, and how these dinoflagellates are isolated for scientific study. This will give aquarists more insight into, and hopefully appreciation for, the symbiosis between zooxanthellae and the corals they grow in their home aquaria.
