COVER T 0412

About the Cover

The red lionfish is recognizable by almost anyone, marine hobbyist or not, but dwarf lions are not nearly as eminent. Dwarf lionfish have all the grace and beauty of their larger cousins, but their smaller size makes them easier to keep in a reasonably sized home aquarium, and their smaller mouths allow them to be paired with a greater variety of tankmates. The species on our cover, the zebra turkeyfish (Dendrochirus zebra), is the most commonly seen dwarf lion and is sure to delight anyone who keeps it. Photograph by Sergey Skleznev/Shutterstock

Tip of the Month:

That some fish, like snakeheads of the genus Channa, can drown? Some species are so dependent on breathing air to supplement their gill respiration that if they are prevented from reaching the surface of the water, they will die from lack of oxygen.
