About the Cover

This Parachromis managuensis male surrounded by a swarm of its fry was captured in this striking image by aquatic photographer Mo Devlin. Using four flash units to light both parent fish and fry cloud, he picked a spot in the tank to focus on and waited, and his patience paid off handsomely with this dramatic shot. Read more in Part 1 of “Tips & Tricks for Better Aquarium Photos” (p. 62).

Tip of the Month:

Unless you have very soft water, you will eventually have to deal with "lime" buildup. When water evaporates, dissolved minerals are left behind as a white film or crust. A razor blade can remove much of the deposit, but this will scratch plastic badly. An easier and dust-free method for glass, plastic, or any other surface is to use a scrubbing pad dampened with household vinegar. The dilute acid quickly dissolves the minerals, and a thorough rinse removes any remaining vinegar.
