COVER T 0811

About the Cover

Looking for a little change of pace in your reef tank? The magnificent specimen on our cover is a sun coral Tubastraea sp., photographed in the wild. As nonphotosynthetic cnidarians, sun corals require careful feeding but can thrive under just about any lighting, from dim to reef-bright. With the proper care they can make a striking display, as Bill Rosser explains in this month's issue (p. 80).

Species Profiles

FOM T 0811 Apteronotus albifrons
Describer: Linnaeus 1766

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.
