    The new March/April issue of CORAL Magazine is shipping out today. Two articles to watch out for are Matt Pedersen’s piece on the Orangespotted Filefish (Oxymonacanthus longirostris) and a profile on the elusive Gem Tang (Zebrasoma gemmatum). From the tail end of Matt’s presentation I caught at the last CMAS swap, this upcoming article should be quite good.

    Here’s a full preview on the upcoming issue from editor James Lawrence:

     

    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 Islands, 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 the Netherlands, 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 24-gallon nano-reefs.

    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.

      I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again-one of if not THE best reefing magazines out there. What a fantastic resource!

      I have been really pleased with this publication, and I hope that they can keep up to the standards they set with the last issue.

      I just created a subscription, can’t wait to see this issue. I have been lucky to see a few of Matt’s files in person – and eating flake to boot. Amazing work and initiative that he’s put into this hobby.
