About the Cover

To celebrate the winners of the 14th annual International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest, this month’s cover features a view of an aquarium designed by Takashi Amano for the Sumida Aquarium in Tokyo’s Skytree Town, a modern commercial center in the Sumida District of Tokyo, Japan that opened in 2012. The over 13½-foot (4-meter), lushly planted tank features a variety of fish including altum angels (Pterophyllum altum) and dwarf neon rainbowfish (Melanotaenia praecox), as well as a wide variety of plants and invertebrate life that help lend this superbly aquascaped creation a bright, shimmering vibrancy.

Tip of the Month:

That mudskippers, those amphibious gobies that scurry around on the shore and climb mangrove roots to get insects, cannot breathe air? They carry water in a pouch around their gills, keeping those organs wet, so they can continue to extract oxygen---sort of "wet-dry gills"!
