Feature Article: Epizoic flatworms impair coral feeding: evidence for parasitism

By Tim Wijgerde on Nov 07, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Flatworms are well-known in the aquarium hobby and research community. Both in the wild and in captivity, they hide between the tentacles of many corals. Despite their common appearance in aquaria, the nature of the symbiosis between corals and flatworms has long been unclear.

Aquarium Lighting: Moonlight - A Concise Review of Its Spectrum, Intensity, Photoperiod, and Relationship to Coral and Fish Spawning

By Dana Riddle on Jul 18, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Moonlight is thought to play an important role in timing reproductive cycles of many coral and fish species. In corals, lunar cycles set the date of spawning, while the time of onset of darkness fine tunes the cycle and decide the hour and minute (then a release of hormones into the water induces mass spawning). Lunar periodicity seems to play a role in timing of reproduction among at least some fish species. It seems apparent that different taxa are affected differently by altered moon phases, if only temporarily.
