One of the allures of reef tanks is to replicate a harmonious captive ecosystem in our homes.
There hasn't been a whole lot of aquarium-relevant scientific papers published this month (or this year for that matter). Fortunately there are still a lot of really wonderful aquariums. This is Reefspy's 180g mixed reef. "True" mixed reef tanks are a rare breed these days, so we love it when we see...
Check out the new sunset fairy wrasse.
A new, vibrant red and yellow fairy wrasse is described from the eastern Timor Sea of Northern Australia. The new species may be a glimpse of evolution in action as it appears to be either a product of recent divergence or hybridization.
It is a delightful sight.
Daniel Stoupin and his team at BioQuest Studios shares with us another world-class video of mass spawning on the Great Barrier Reef. The detail is breathtaking! We guarantee you'll appreciate the world's greatest synchronous reproduction event more than ever before.
Fish respond to predator attack by doubling growth rate
Scientists recently stumbled upon an unexpected finding: Captive fish that were exposed to predators doubled their growth rate! Could our aquarium safe-spaces be stunting the growth of our fish?
More than any other year 2017 felt like it was jam packed with a deluge of new species of marine fish being described. These included many from the tropica
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to attend or speak at just about every large show, frag swap and meeting that occurred throughout North America
Many tetras are difficult to sex. Often, differentiation comes down to fin lengths, subtle color deviations, or sometimes just the "fullness" of their bellies. But with Hyphessobrycon myrmex, the color between the sexes is unmistakable, and that's a good thing because this species is tiny.
Tangs, AKA surgeonfish, are known for their scalpel-like caudal spines located on their tail peduncles. On tangs with retractable spines such as Zebrasoma and Acanthurus, the scalpels are thought to be flat blades. But researchers have found that on a few scopas tangs, the spines actually have forwa...
What are your fishes' personalities?
Scientists are finding out what aquarists have long known: fishes have very distinct, complex, and stable personalities. All snarkiness aside, it's important for science to test and validate our anecdotal observations.
This encouraging trend may be the result of education about proper stocking levels.
Polls tracking pet ownership show that the number of fishkeepers (particularly marine fishkeepers) have increased in the USA over the past five years. However, over the same time period, UK fishkeepers have declined substantially. How is the fishkeeping scene where you live?
Foods that are colorful tend to yield more colorful fish. #CoralConnection will advise you on proper nutrition.
What fish eat not only determine how well they grow but also how colorful they become. Research helps us understand the optimum concentration of Astaxanthin (the reddish keto-carotenoid compound) in fish food.
Girls might MATURE more quickly than boys when it comes to humans. But scientists have discovered the male livebearing fish (e.g. guppies, mollies, platies, swordtails) EVOLVE more quickly than females.
Intensely colored strain of Acropora florida
In the world of aquarium stony corals, the 'Bali Green Slimer' has been the king of green SPS for more than twenty years, since the mid nineties. This part
Scientists have closely examined the brains of mantis shrimp and discovered a brain structure that was previously only found in insects. The reason why crustaceans and insects resemble each other is increasingly evident: they diverged from the same evolutionary ancestor.

The Maxspect RSX LED is the newest aquarium fixture from Maxspect, and the true successor to the Razor LED platform. Initially, we thought that the Maxspec
Researchers will use a zebrafish model to search for new therapeutics that could block drug-seeking behavior.
Zebrafish who were exposed to hydrocodone developed fiendish drug-seeking behavior as well as withdrawal when the drug was discontinued.
We know the red carotenoid astaxanthin is essential for optimal red and orange coloration in fish and coral, but Reed Mariculture conducted an experim
