About the Cover

Exploding with vibrant color on this month’s cover is a branching coral of the genus Euphyllia, which includes the ever-popular frogspawn, hammer, and torch corals. In the aquarium Euphyllia corals can thrive in moderate lighting and a gentle current, and they accept feedings with relative gusto. Members of this genus are known to deploy long, stinging sweeper tentacles at night, however, so it’s best to leave some room between them and neighboring corals.

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.
