COVER T 0311

About the Cover

The perky fellow on this month's cover is a Gobiodon citrinus, a fish with such diverse common names as "citron goby," "poison goby," and "clown goby." It and its congeners make perfect specimens for reef tanks and for fish-only tanks with similar peaceful and timid species. Collectively known as coral gobies, these fish live among th ebranches of Acropora corals. Read more about these beautiful fish, chosen for this issue's "Fish of the Month," on p. 52.

FOM T 0311 Gobiodon citrinus
Describer: (RÜPPELL 1838)

Tip of the Month:

That mudskippers, those amphibious gobies that scurry around on the shore and climb mangrove roots to get insects, cannot breathe air? They carry water in a pouch around their gills, keeping those organs wet, so they can continue to extract oxygen---sort of "wet-dry gills"!
