Info

However, if people stopped buying these fish, stores would have no choice but to stop carrying them, particularly in light of their higher mortality than many other fish. The best choice for eliminating the reprehensible behavior that results in dyed fish is to simply stop their sale. Articles in magazines and other market pressures during the early 1980s were successful in almost eliminating the painted glassfish from the market, though it later made a comeback. Tell your aquarium...

Do we really have to hate phosj so much, or is it just misunderstood Any aquarist who has made it through a majll algaB bloom has a verympeCific opinion about phosphates they are bad. This opinioAis often considered gospel in the aquarium hobby and is frequently cited in hobby literature and on various message boards. The underlying rationale behind this assertion is that algae need phosphates to grow. If there are no phosphates in the aquarium, then algae will not grow. Following this logic,...

Problems With Coral Kingman Reef

Many hobbyists are first introduced to aquarium plants when purchasing packs of easy-to-grow plant bulbs that are available in some department stores. Hobbyists also discover what a rhizome is when they attach aquatic ferns and Anubias plants to wood by wrapping thread around that thick, horizontal, rootlike base that the leaves and roots grow from. These are important parts of the plant structure that are critical for storing nutrients and asexual reproduction. With a greater understanding of...

Tetras Can Help Cycle Your Tank

These little fish are able to withstand different water types. I'm a fairly new aquarist, and I'm having a problem with one of my freshwater tanks. It is a 20-gallon setup filtered by a Penguin 170 filter with a biowheel. The tank contains no live plants. The problem is that the tank has not cycled after six weeks. I'm certain I caused the problem by putting too great a bioload on the system too soon. Within a week of setting up the tank, I added three platys, six neon tetras, one tri-color...

Am

In action and appearance these seem to be the most intelligent of the small Bermuda fish. This is perhaps unfairly enhanced by the hand and foot-like use of the pelvic fins, and the conspicuous, intelligent-looking eyes. Both in the tidepools and two to three fathoms down, which are their natural haunts, and in aquariums, they are quick, keen and fearless. They pay little attention to the approaching diver or to anyone watching close to the glass of the aquarium. I can personally vouch for this...
