Jay Hemdal examine an affliction of fish seen mainly in public aquariums (and a few larger home aquariums); “eye-droop” in the Osteoglossids.

Many of us use FishBase for their maximum size records…I had a strong feeling that many fish do not grow as large in captivity as they can in the wild.
During tough economic times, does the aquarium industry find itself struggling, or flourishing?
In light of invasive species, the time has likely come for the development of effective Aquarium Industry certification system.
