COVER T 0711

About the Cover

Up close and personal, that's the stunning photography of cichlid enthusiast Mo Devlin. This Nandopsis haitiensis is as tough as he looks-nicknamed the black nasty, this fish is not for squeamish hobbyists! More than a foot long and with a truly nasty attitude, this cichlid is well worth the trouble, at least for many "cichlidiots," like those attending the American Cichlid Association (ACA) Convention July 21-24, 2011 in Washington, D.C.

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.
