COVER T 0411

About the Cover

Colorful, fun to keep, and easy to propagate, the multihued zoanthids are extremely popular for nano reefs. The hobby names given to these “zoos” can be as colorful as their striking polyps, and the ones blazing on the cover of this issue are a perfect example with their creative moniker “radioactive eagle eyes.” Read all about the garden reef tank where they are thriving in this month’s “Going Nano” (p. 44).

Tip of the Month:

The number of eggs a female fish produces is related to the amount of parental care given? A cod might shed several million eggs in a single spawning, leaving them to disperse in the open ocean, while a cichlid that broods her eggs in her mouth and cares for the fry after hatching may produce only a half dozen per clutch.
