    New Deepwater Anthias Species from Japan

    At every MACNA the fish geeks become the industry’s equivalent of a drug dealer share their addiction. With a quick innocent looking handshake, an 8gb flash drive is exchanged with more fish “p0rn” than what was previously known to man. This particular flash drive was a rare LE Flash drive–it came from Japan. This MACNA was […]

    Steinhart’s Anthias Dominated Deep Reef in HD

    Last week I found myself in San Francisco which allowed for a quick browsing of the Steinhart Aquarium and the rest of the California Academy of Sciences. I was fortunate enough to catch up with Steinhart Biologists and aquarium pros, Rich Ross and Matt Wandell who showed me some of the behind the scene tanks […]

I am a bit embarrassed to even share this…! ____________________________________________ After two weeks of cupramine treatment followed by formalin dips the Lyretail Anthias were ready to go into the glassbox. Being so small […]

    Mike and Brandon Photograph the Glassbox

    Over the weekend two local reefers, Mike Clifford and Brandon Taylor, stopped by to check out the glassbox and take some photos. Here are a few of them. The first Roaops Hybrid photo is my own, but the rest are all from Mike and Brandon. My fish can be extremely difficult to photograph. When people […]
