Marine Habitat Issue 12

issue 12 has to be amongst the best yet, the fact that it has sold out will bear that out, the cover picture of the frogfish is eyecatching and makes you pick it up and have a look not that that is all that is in it, fish junkies,the publishers have now got a range of gifts with christmas coming up ranging from the species mug set to a years subscription free gift these and more are available from www. fjshop.co.uk .

the mythbuster is a must read for all, testing, what when and why, even if we think we know about testing it was worth a butchers to see if there was anything we could glean from it, from the beginers to experts and those inbetween it makes a very interesting read.

sting as good as you get, the final instalment of an under water experience was a great account of someone who wasn't born to scuba dive and the not so perfect time he had , the brilliant pics were and extra added bonus, the ultimate species guide was interesting, it incliuded a couple of species that you wouldn't normally see in home aquaria along with two more common species. Mimic,mimetic or cryptic trumpets? an investigation into the diferent types of mimicry, which isn't always about hiding from predators and how it it is also used by predator and prey alike and some cheat feeders who gain the confidence of other fish then take lumps out of the unsuspecting neighbour.

the competion this issue is worth a mention, what a great prize, or i should say prizes, there are 2 first prizes of a complete reef care program by red sea worth £225 and 5 runners up prizes of red sea energy A+B twin pack (100ml) worth £16.95 each well worth a punt i think.

another pick in this issue was the water testing fundamentals, this was the science behind how test kits actually work and gives you an insight into which one would suit you, of course there was our usual top tanks feature which where Bigstring (Rob), Evolad (Dave) and Bugburd (Sarah) but this time there are 2 groundbreakers so to speak, both Rob and Sarah have had tanks in before and are hte only 2 in the in twice club, both with different tanks of course.

gear guide made good reading, again to do with test kits,( bit of a pattern forming here) this one was a look at what test kits are around.

Duncans are on the fragging guide this issue and Top of the Rocks are colonial poyps, fish rooms part 2 is thorough and gives you the back bone of what you will need to start a fish house, a far cry from my fish house many many years ago.

one of my favourite articles is the frogfish, they are so obscure, they are fascinating and they come in an array of colours, so if you like something a little laid back they are the chaps for you. finally if your looking for a day out, well you could do worse than pay a visit to the aquarium exhibit at the world museum in liverpool, after being a little worse for wear in the past it has had an overhaul and is getting back on track with help from reefers and and one of our sponsors, cockfields donating frags.

This is just a brief flick through and there are a lot more brilliant features in the now 100 pages, and now the Marine Habitat is available from WHSmiths and on itunes or alterantively never miss an issue and get a yearly subscription or maybe it would make an ideal gift for christmas to or from your loved one or friends, subscriptions are available from
