The March/April 2009 issue of CORAL goes to the printer tomorrow, March 17th, with a mailing date of March 31st.
The cover subject of the much-anticipated March/April issue of CORAL is a definitive look at Large-Polyp Stony Corals with an incredible array of images from the wild, as well in the aquarium.
CORAL, now coming from the same publishing team that produces Microcosm Books in Vermont, has already more than doubled the circulation of the previous incarnation of the magazine.
The travel feature takes the reader to the Galapagos, above and below the waterline.
For dreamers, there is a great profile of the Gem Tang (Zebrasoma gemmatum), a detailed look at a spectacular 52-gallon stony-coral reef in Germany, and a stunning photo essay on zooplankton by Matthew L. Wittenrich.
The story everyone will talk about is a piece by Matt Pedersen of Chicago, who reveals how he trains Orangespotted Filefish (Oxymonacanthus longirostris) to eat prepared foods and has them spawning in his nano-reef.
Among the many other features, Charles Delbeek’s Advanced Aquarist column makes a controversial case for hiding powerheads and keeping coralline algal growth under control.
The March/April 2009 will start arriving in subscribers homes at the end of the first week of April.
