Researchers will use a zebrafish model to search for new therapeutics that could block drug-seeking behavior.
Zebrafish who were exposed to hydrocodone developed fiendish drug-seeking behavior as well as withdrawal when the drug was discontinued.
What is the purpose of the bright red spots if not to serve as a display of toxicity?
This gaudily colored nudibranch is toxic, and triggerfishes know it. But what markings on this nudibranch signal to fishes it is toxic? It's not what you may think. Here's a hint: Consistency matters.
Scientists in the UK have observed a fascinating new fact about sex changing fish.
Sequential hermaphroditism is a fairly rare thing ... unless you're a reef fish. From clownfish and damselfish to angelfish and wrasses, a new study explores the dynamics and implications of fish that can change sexes.
This encouraging trend may be the result of education about proper stocking levels.
Polls tracking pet ownership show that the number of fishkeepers (particularly marine fishkeepers) have increased in the USA over the past five years. However, over the same time period, UK fishkeepers have declined substantially. How is the fishkeeping scene where you live?
Have you ever wondered how brittle stars hide from light without eyes? Scientists have now discovered the mechanism for their eyeless "vision": The skin on the arms and bodies of brittle stars are covered with thousands of photoreceptors.

This is one of the few studies to explore how pollution from human activity impacts schooling behavior in fish.
Marine aquarists have all experienced it: Reef fishes that naturally school simply refuse to in captivity? Common theories are that the lack of predators or the relatively small size of aquariums discourage schooling. A new study finds that noise plays a big role. Noisy water = less cohesive schooli...
Intensely colored strain of Acropora florida
In the world of aquarium stony corals, the 'Bali Green Slimer' has been the king of green SPS for more than twenty years, since the mid nineties. This part
Let's Go To Vegas!
MACNA, the Marine Aquarium Conference of North America, will be in Las Vegas Nevada, September 7th to the 9th. If our math serves us correctly this will be
There are now three more species added to the official record.
Three new big, beautiful crayfish species are described from neighboring streams found in the Kentucky Appalachians. Anyone up for an Appalachian crayfish biotope aquarium?
New hermit crab uses live coral as its home
Heteropsammia sp., otherwise known as "walking corals," can scoot around on the substrate thanks to spaghetti worms that live inside the coral's base. Now a new species of hermit crab has been also found to share this special relationship.
Clownfish and some dottybacks may get the most attention in discussions of captive bred marine fish, and especially domesticated of aquarium species. But s
For several years we've enjoyed a really cool coral that comes mostly from Western Australia which is both beautiful and intriguing. While these do look di
Navigobius has been one of our favorite groups of dartfish since the genus was erected in 2009. So it is with great pleasure that today we get to add anoth
Many tetras are difficult to sex. Often, differentiation comes down to fin lengths, subtle color deviations, or sometimes just the "fullness" of their bellies. But with Hyphessobrycon myrmex, the color between the sexes is unmistakable, and that's a good thing because this species is tiny.
This study suggests that wild corals can continue to grow as summer temperature rise.
Bermuda A two-year study of coral growth rates in Bermuda, has shown a positive correlation between coral calcification rates and warmer summer ocean tempe
One of the allures of reef tanks is to replicate a harmonious captive ecosystem in our homes.
There hasn't been a whole lot of aquarium-relevant scientific papers published this month (or this year for that matter). Fortunately there are still a lot of really wonderful aquariums. This is Reefspy's 180g mixed reef. "True" mixed reef tanks are a rare breed these days, so we love it when we see...
