The cover of CORAL Magazine Volume 15, Issue 3 – ULTRA-HARDY FISHES – May/June 2018. On the cover: Percula Clownfish, Amphiprion percula, by Gary Bell. Background: Tubipora sp., by Daniel Knop
CORAL Magazine’s 3rd issue for 2018 focuses squarely on beginner success in the saltwater aquarium hobby, highlighting fish species with proven track records suitable for marine aquarium–keepers of every experience level.
The issue also revisits the applications for ozone in the marine aquarium, a technology which has perhaps fallen out of favor, but is worthy of a fresh look. Stories of reef recovery, more on the underappreciated “wallflower” genus Tubipora, and an inside look at how public aquariums obtain their most unusual specimens await you in the pages of our newest issue.
The magazine is printed and on its way to subscribers, local aquarium shops, and select bookstores—on sale May 8th, 2018, at the best marine aquarium retail stores and leading Barnes & Noble stores everywhere.
