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 Fish: An Overview of Clownfish of the Saddleback Complex

By Kenneth Wingerter on Jan 04, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Members of the Saddleback Complex are among the most challenging species of clownfish to maintain in captivity. A rather high level of care must be reached to ensure (if it can be ensured) the health and wellbeing of these sensitive animals. Generally, attempts to keep these fishes should be undertaken by advanced aquarists (especially so if host anemones are to be kept as well). Properly cared for, the wide-band clownfish, the saddleback clownfish, and the sebae clownfish alike will undoubtedly enhance the beauty and distinctiveness of any marine aquarium display.

Aquarium Fish: An Overview of Clownfish of the Tomato Complex

By Kenneth Wingerter on Dec 21, 2011 at 10:00 AM

The Tomato Complex arguably claims some of the most durable marine aquarium fish species, being capable of withstanding suboptimal water quality, inadequate nutrition, and careless handling (that being said, it is certainly not advisable to subject them to poor living conditions). Due to their powerful bodies and belligerent temperament, they are well suited for a community of larger, more aggressive species. As such, members of this complex are undoubtedly the best choice of clownfish for hobbyists (novice and advanced alike) that have a fondness for outstandingly bold, cantankerous fishes.

Aquarium Fish: Spawning Cirrhilabrus jordani

By Tony Vargas on Nov 09, 2011 at 09:00 AM

For years we were instructed to keep these fish in larger spaces for success, but I firmly believe in pushing the boundaries a little to see what we get. These fish spawned in a 25-gallon system repeatedly, and yes some Cirrhilabrus wrasses will require larger spaces because of their size but it can be done!

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.
