 About the Cover

The group of roseline or Denison’s barbs (Sahyadria denisonii) on this month’s cover are currently the subject of some taxonomic confusion, a situation the species’ variable size and color pattern doesn’t make any easier. What we do know for sure is that these colorful fish make a stunning addition to a suitable tank, especially one that is well planted. As active swimmers that prefer to be kept in schools, these fish are best suited to larger aquariums of 75 gallons (284 liters) or more, as Mark Denaro explains this month in “10 Big, Beautiful Barbs for Larger Aquariums.”

Species Profiles

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.
