Nausicaà succeeds in breeding the Lookdown in multi-species larval rearing
It’s not really in demand as an aquarium fish, but nevertheless the glimmering silver Lookdown, Selene vomer, is a very common game fish displayed in large public aquariums. It’s also not the first time this fish has been captive bred, but the interesting part is that the French aquaculture venture Nausicaa is doing it in a multi-species larval rearing system
Is the Blue Tang a Dumb Fish?
I’ve seen Blue Tang in the wild on numerous occasions. But they get harder and harder to come by. Based in Bali, Indonesia, I often met a couple of adults or juveniles around here and there. But rarely found a healthy adult population. Like many people, I thought the aquarium industry was responsible for its disappearance. And to be honest, it is responsible for most of it, but not only.
Two Lessons: On rare occasions, some very strange predators can appear, uninvited, in the marine aquarium. And: Things are not always what they seem to be!

Jon Gordon says:Please sign this to support common sense rules in Florida. Ask Fish and Wildlife not to use an ill-advised whitelist of animals that can be kept. All you need to do is add your name to the following statement, "A viable option I support would be a list of prohibited species, which would be a much smaller, manageable and enforceable list than one that attempts to encompass all allowed species.

Bryce David says:To whom it may concern, A whitelist approach to regulating which species are legally allowed to be obtained and traded will decimate fish farms and pet stores. This is not a well thought out approach for combating invasive species release into ecosystems. Best Management Practices have already made inroads on preventing the release of foreign invader species. I suggest a review of those practices and amend them if they are deemed to be insufficient. Sincerely, Bryce David
Edward Moats says:I urge you to consider the ramifications of losing a 172 million dollar industry in your state. I completely support the black list and agree that invasive species is a big concern. However , I feel that this bill is over reaching and will have a negative impact not only On the industry , but to Florida’s economy.
