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:

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.
