COVER T 0313

About the Cover

One of the greatest challenges in reefkeeping is knowing which fish and invertebrates can live together in harmony, and this challenge is only amplified in a nano setting. The 10-gallon nano reef on this month’s cover features a range of large-polyp stony corals, soft corals, and gorgonians. For more on this tank visit the TFH Extras blog at tfhmagazine.com, and to learn more about how to set up a perfect coral garden of your own, check out “Going Nano” from one of our expert reefkeepers, Bob Fenner (p. 50).

Species Profiles

FOM T 0112 Black molly
Describer: N/A

Tip of the Month:

That while most fish are either freshwater or marine, with a small number of species regularly inhabiting brackish estuarine habitats, a few fishes are at home in water of any salinity, including hypersaline - saltier than seawater! Some of these species, like the bull shark Carcharhinus leucas, are not potential aquarium specimens, but the group includes the popular sailfin molly Poecilla spp. and the much underappreciated native American sheepshead minnow Cyprinodon variegatus. These can be kept under fresh, brackish, or marine conditions.
