About the Cover

Choosing fish for a nano setup comes with its own set of unique challenges. The fish must be small, relatively peaceful with other fish or invert companions, and not overly active. Blennies, such as the charismatic little tube blenny peeking out from his coral burrow on our cover, meet all of these criteria and, as a bonus, are colorful and full of personality. Learn about the best blennies for your nano reef in this month’s installment of “Going Nano” (p. 38). Photograph by Luiz A. Rocha/Shutterstock

Tip of the Month:

That most fish like bananas? Seeds and fruits make up a good portion of the diet of many popular aquarium fishes, but even fish that would never see a banana in their native habitat will probably enjoy eating one. Try a small portion of mashed banana, and see if your fish don't go ape over it!
