COVER T 1211

About the Cover

While goldfish are often kept in glass bowls by kids (quite unfortunately, for both the fish and the inevitably heartbroken kids), true goldfish fanciers enjoy their beauty and fascinating behaviors in much more suitable settings. The original ornamental pet fish, goldfish have been kept and bred for many centuries. This month’s cover illustrates the spectacular result of a professional aquarium designer’s integration of aquascaping with goldfish keeping; read all about it in this issue’s “Adventures in Aquascaping” (p. 34).

FOM T 1211 Mikrogeophagus altispinosus
Describer: (HASEMAN 1911)

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.
