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.

The Way We Were: 1973: Breeding the Clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris

By Martin A. Moe on Feb 08, 2012 at 10:00 AM

This was the first article written that described the successful culture of large numbers (relatively speaking) of marine tropical fish. I wrote the article in January/February of 1973 after working with about 10 spawns of Amphiprion ocellaris. It was also my first article in the popular marine aquarist magazines of the time. The article, including editor's comments, is just as it was first printed (with a few spelling corrections).

Aquarium Corals: Applying PAM fluorometry for the advancement of coral aquaculture

By Zack Zartler on Jan 18, 2012 at 10:00 AM

(Alaska Pacific University) While the aquaculture of corals has greatly improved with recent technological advances in water parameter regulation, flow control, and lighting, a lag persists in physiological examination of the health of coral specimens. A cost-friendly, pulse amplitude modulated (PAM) fluorometer (Junior- or JR-PAM) was used to examine photosynthetic activity of corals within recommended aqua-culturing temperature ranges. A total of 24 coral fragments were used, representing four species: Acropora sp., Montipora digitata, Pavona decussatus, and Seriatopora hystrix. Exposure to typical, aqua-culturing temperature treatments (22, 24, 26, and 28°C) for three week periods revealed significant restrictions of photosynthesis at lower- and higher-end temperatures. Both maximum quantum yield (FV/FM) and maximum, relative electron transport rate (rETR) were significantly different across the four-interval temperature range. The efficacy of the JR-PAM for in situ coral research was also examined, and usefulness for determining coral productivity was assessed.

Aquarium Invertebrates: A Trip to an Indonesian Coral and Clam Farm

By James W. Fatherree, M.Sc. on Sep 07, 2011 at 08:00 AM

A few years ago when I was working on my book about giant clams, I was lucky enough to get a tour of the CV Dinar coral and giant clam aquaculture facility in Indonesia. I'm sure a lot of hobbyists have heard of the "farms" in the Pacific, but I figured I'd give you something of a virtual tour of the place and show you a bit about how things are done there. It was quite interesting to say the least.

Aquarium Corals: A First Report: Early Summer Daytime Spawning of Porites lutea in Hawai'i

By Dana Riddle on May 18, 2011 at 08:00 AM

To our knowledge, this is the first report of P. lutea's daytime spawning as early as July in Hawaiian waters. The take home message is clear - not all corals spawn at night or do our observations of P. lutea's spawning behaviors correspond to any particular lunar phase. In fact, our observations suggest spawnings are random during periods of warmer water.

Aquarium Invertebrates: A Look at Giant Clam Spawning in Aquaria

By James W. Fatherree, M.Sc. on Aug 14, 2009 at 08:00 PM

Even under the best conditions, only a small percent of the eggs ejected in a spawning event will actually get fertilized, and of those that do, maybe 5% will make it through metamorphosis, or even far fewer than that.

Breeder's Net: Effects of Copper Exposure on Marine Ornamental Fish Reproduction and Survival

By Chatham K. Callan, Ph.D, Charles W. Laidley, Ph.D. on Oct 14, 2008 at 08:00 PM

The results of these combined experiments indicated that elevated copper levels can cause accute mortality in flame angelfish and significantly reduce the reproductive performance of orchid dottyback broodstock. Therefore, the use of copper as a therapy for external parasites in these species is cautioned.
