Fishy love story breeds new Nemo

Reminiscent of the movie Finding Nemo, two mature clown fish of different breeds and the same sex found each other in a tropical version of Sydney Harbour, a 2.5-million-litre tank at Townsville's Reef HQ Aquarium.

The outcome was the birth of a new breed of baby Nemos.

Aquarium head aquarist Glen Everson says it is very rare for two different types of clown fish to breed.

Putting science behind RI's ornamental fish industry

For decades international collectors discussed Indonesia's trade in ornamental fish only in hushed tones.

The environmental damage to the nation's marine reefs caused by stunning fish with illegal potassium cyanide had placed Indonesia's export of aquarium fish on the questionable practices list overseas while drawing much criticism from environmentalists and the fishing industry at home.

A group of marine biologists and divers, backed by government regulations, are now helping ornamental fishermen rethink their collection techniques, with environmental and economically sustainable results.

With training from the Indonesian Nature Foundation (LINI), aquarium fish harvesters in many parts of Indonesia are now using small-gauge nets to gather targeted fish species, allowing coral reef to replenish itself.

The soft nets reduce injury to the fish, which are again breeding well thanks to no-take zones. These serve as miniature marine reserves, allowing for breeding and a safe haven for fish agreed to by the fishermen.

Aquarium fish divers have often sprayed collectible fish with potassium cyanide to stun them, which also kills off the nearby coral. Unbridled use of potassium cyanide was killing off the very reefs which serve as the breeding ground and living habitat for many aquarium and food fish species. The harvesters were in effect killing the golden goose.

Beautiful but deadly

The Wildlife World Aquarium will not only feature exotic marine animals from all over the world but also educate visitors about the health of our oceans.

For example, one of the most elegant-looking and widely known among aquarium hobbyists the lionfish, also represents a serious threat to ocean ecosystems in the Caribbean where they are considered an invasive species. Due to human activities, these venomous fish, originally from the South Pacific Ocean, have proliferated and threaten to eliminate native Atlantic species of reef fish. It is another example of what can happen when an ecosystem’s balance is upset by the introduction of a new species with few or zero natural enemies to keep its population in check.

Scientists don’t yet know what the long-term effects of this exploding population of predators will have on Atlantic reef systems. One concern is the loss of herbivorous fish that normally keep the growth of algae in check. Thus, preventing the smothering of coral reefs (ScienceDaily.com).

Lionfish are distinguished by several long spines that can inject venom that is lethal to other fish. (The venom, while very painful, is rarely lethal for humans.)

In case you’ve not heard about the new Wildlife World Aquarium set to open in a few weeks, the 16-acre facility has three indoor exhibit buildings featuring sharks, stingrays, flamingos, crocs and more.

A log flume ride takes passengers around several primate islands and through a large aquarium tunnel filled with tropical Pacific reef fish. The project also includes a new zoo and aquarium entrance, two gift shops, paved parking, and the Tiburon Restaurant & Flamingo Lounge.

At opening, more than 150 new species will be added to the nearly 400 species already in the zoo and aquarium collection. The new animals will be spread over some 80 indoor and outdoor exhibits in a campus-like setting.

Nothing fishy about his success

Mohd Zulkilfi Yusof inspecting a discus fish at his farm. — NST picture by Fathil Asri

KOTA BARU: When his business nose-dived during a recession in the late 1990s, batik maker Mohd Zulkilfi Yusof floundered for a while and even drove a taxi to earn a living.

To cope with the stress of losing his business, the 48-year-old kept an aquarium of fish five years ago.

The hobby became his ticket back into the business world.

As the fish bred and multiplied, Zulkifli bought new aquariums and this caught the attention of the youth in his neighbourhood.

They began thronging his house in Kampung Jias Dewan Beta here to buy fish for their own aquariums.
It was then that he decided to go full-time into the aquarium fish-breeding business.

Now, the father-of-four is a successful aquarium fish-breeder with a farm and 15 ponds filled with various species of fish such as guppies and molly fish.

Instead of resting on his laurels, he is making big plans for the future, including developing an arowana farm at a one-hectare site in Gual Pasir, Rantau Panjang.

Zulkilfi has also started breeding the popular Betta splendens, or fighting fish, and the expensive discus fish.

He has had to hire four workers to help him out on the fish farm and has delegated the marketing to several agents.

"I sell to customers who come here, but the daily marketing is left to the agents, who open up stalls at farmers' markets and other public events.

"We sell more than 20,000 fish of various species monthly in the state, and it is still not enough.

"I have to source another 10 per cent of my stock from outside Kelantan." 

The cheaper varieties are sold at 12 sen to 18 sen each to the agents, while the fighting fish go for RM2 to RM50 each. 

The discus fish usually go for more than RM100 each.

Zulkifli's growing business has also attracted the attention of the Fisheries Department and the Kemubu Agricultural Development Authority, which has helped him to improve his farm and sent him for training.

Florida May Tighten Reef Harvest Rules

A series of draft changes to Florida’s marine-life (aquarium species) fishery regulations will be discussed at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s public meetingDec. 4 in Key West, Fla. The changes would protect additional fish and invertebrate species, and establish generally tighter limits on collection species currently regulated.

The commission attributes changes in aquarium technology that have allowed for “living-reef tanks” as opposed to simple fish tanks as driving the need for the regulatory changes.

“Many consumers are now seeking more invertebrates, such as snails, anemones and crabs for their living-reef aquarium,” the draft rule reads. “FWC rulemaking has not kept pace with the demand for more invertebrates.”

The regulations would apply to the 168 commercial endorsements, as well as recreational divers collecting for their own aquariums. In 2005, Florida established an endorsement program that allowed 130 commercial divers to collect aquarium species and 38 to commercial fishermen who captured marine life as bycatch in shrimp trawls, and crab and lobster traps. Aside from the holders of those 146 endorsements, commercial marine-life harvesting is not allowed in Florida waters, and recreational divers with saltwater-fishing licenses are not allowed to sell any of their marine catch.

Proposed changes include establishing maximum size limits for parrotfish and tangs (to curtail food harvest), making the slot limit for Cuban hogfish consistent with that of Spanish hogfish, and widening the slot limit on butterflyfish. The proposes rules would also establish a personal limit for butterfly fish in addition to the existing vessel limit.

Some aquarium hobbyist likes to keep aquarium plants in their aquarium, but you always have to replace the plants because they are always wilting. Then you get frustrated on keeping them. What aquarium plants need? Aquarium Plants need Lighting, Nutrients and some aquarium hobbyist this thing, CO2! CO2 is important to plants because they make their own food out of CO2. Remember plants need CO2 for food, that's why planting more trees help reduces CO2 in our air and that's good. But in the aquarium water CO2 is reduce because the aquarium filter moves the water and creates oxygen and if you have a heavily planted aquarium which needs more CO2. Do I need CO2? Depends on how many plants you have in your aquarium. If you have a lot of plants you should have CO2, but if you don't you do not need extra CO2.

How to make an Aquarium CO2 System?
You don't spend lots of money on a complicated pressurised aquarium CO2 system. This method we are going to show you is the uncomplicated bio method of producing CO2 for your aquarium plants.

Here is the materials you need:
1 two litre soda bottle with a cap and an extra cap for mixing your mixture
1 silicone airline tube (the one you use of your aquarium air pump)
1 aquarium CO2 diffuser (You can find them at most pets store that's sells aquarium fish)
Glue Gun
Check Valve
1 teaspoon of yeast (We recommend using active dry yeast or quick yeast)
3/4-1 Cup Of Sugar
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (for areas with soft water)
6-7 Cup of water (Luke warm water is recommended) 
A funnel (To prevent messes)

Make a hole on one of the caps, then insert the airline tube through it until its 2-3 cm below the cap. Then spread the glue from the glue gun around the hole to seal it and let it dry until usage. Then add the yeast, sugar, baking soda(for area with soft water), and luke warm water. Then use the cap with the hole and put it on. Then shake the mixture well. Then put the cap on with airline tube. Remember to put the check valve to prevent water siphoning into your aquarium.

Fish hobbyists from cities such as Des Moines, Iowa and Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska joined other enthusiasts from Blue Springs, Independence and Kansas City at an auction and fundraiser Saturday sponsored by the Heart of America Aquarium Society.

HAAS Director Ron Wells said the auction – held at the Palmer Senior Center at 218A North Pleasant in Independence – was the third of the year at Palmer for the Web-based organization.

The auction, Wells said, included a can food drive to benefit Eastern Jackson County’s Community Services League, in addition to a food court that contributed proceeds from sales to the CSL as well.

“Our goal is to support 10 families for Thanksgiving,” Wells said, adding that a few members of HAAS who work with or volunteers at one of the CSL’s six sites in the Eastern Jackson County area suggested the two organizations partner for a day to raise funds. “This is more than about fish.”

Hooked on Aquariums

Dave Unruh is waiting for a little hanky panky in his basement. But it's been three years. And still, he waits. He's pretty much done everything he can to set the mood for a little lovin'.

Luckily, Dave is a patient guy. Good thing. When it comes to breeding fish, especially those rather fussy wild-caught angel fish, he knows he simply can't rush nature.

About three years ago, he bought 10. Pterophyllum scalare they are. Eight survived and seem to delight in entertaining visitors with their graceful dances in their 500-litre tank .

He's researched them. Read about their likes and dislikes. And has done everything possible to please them.

He's dimmed the lights. He filters their water through peat moss to give it a tea-like tint to mimic their natural, South American environment. He's included stuff they like to hide in: ribbon-like grass and driftwood.

He even varies their diet to keep them content. Frozen bloodworms. Live red worms. And good-quality flaked food that he stores in his freezer for optimal freshness.

He fusses about things like water temperature and PH levels. Everything has to be just right.

He even has a piece of slate propped against one side of the tank because he read they like to lay eggs on a vertical, slanted surface.

To the human observer, they seem happy enough.

Problem is, they're just not in the mood for anything amourous.

Dave is pretty sure he's got a mix of males and females. Although, he admits with a smile: "I can't tell the difference."
