How to milk a GBR stonefish (with bonus murder mantis video)

By Leonard Ho - Posted Nov 11, 2014 09:00 AM
We love the youtube channel, Smarter Every Day, where science is introduced to viewers in an entertaining and inspiring way without severely dumbing down the content (something Advanced Aquarist strives for ourselves). These particular episodes are of particular interest to fish geeks.

Suffice it to say, don't try this at home (or at your LFS).  It's much safer to just subscribe to Smarter Every Day and let the professionals demonstrate the magic of science.

And here is a bonus SED video, who once again visits James Cook University to investigate - in slow motion - the powerful punch of mantis shrimp.  Science is so damn neato.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
