COVER T 0812

About the Cover

Sexy shrimp (Thor amboinensis) make colorful, active, and just plain fun additions to any reef—especially a nano reef. When kept in small groups, they will live up to their name, dancing for each other (and you) on anemones and other similar corals. As marine author Richard Aspinall suggests, these charming shrimp are perhaps the perfect choice for nano aquaria based on their small size, simple diets, ease of breeding, and compatibility with like species. Read all about these delightful inverts in “Sexy Shrimps” (p. 92). Photograph by Kar Seng Sim

Species Profiles

FOM T 0112 Black molly
Describer: N/A

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.
