COVER T 0911

About the Cover

The hairy-looking fellow on this month's cover is a striated frogfish Antennarius striatus. Bizarre and fascinating, frogfish, also known as anglerfish, are as unusual in behavior as they are in appearance, and they're the only animals that have a built-in fishing pole for catching dinner. Learn all about frogfish for the aquarium this month in Scott Michael's "The Weird and Wonderful Frogfishes" (p. 86).

Tip of the Month:

Plug your filter and heater into a power strip separate from your lights. Then, when you go to drain the tank to change water, you can shut off the filter and heater, preventing damage due to low water, but still have the lights to see to properly vacuum the gravel.
