Wolf Eel Eggs
From Oregon
Video of Wolf Eel Eggs and Fry
Wolf Eels, fierce-looking predators of the Oregon near-shore reefs, are bred in captivity at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, at Newport. The artificial habitat there mimics natural ocean conditions so effectively, two sets of mated wolf eels produced eggs. The aquarists' challenge -- see that the eggs hatch, and the young wolf eels survive. We watch aquarium scientists employ their considerable expertise and resources to keep the tiny creatures on the road to adulthood. Click here to see the video. Special thanks to John from Portland, Oregon, for the link to this video.
Water: H2O = Life.
In New York
Water: H2O = Life, a new Exhibition
It is impossible to enter “Water: H2O = Life,” the exhibition opening tomorrow at the American Museum of Natural History, and not feel excitement at its possibilities. You walk into darkened space where a tumbling aqua-lighted waterfall seems to descend from the ceiling; letters projected on its turbulent surface spell “water” in multiple languages. This is affecting and clever because the seeming cascade really is formed of water in its vaporous state. And you cannot pass through that curtain of mist without taking some notice of water’s extraordinary qualities: Like few other substances on earth, the show points out, water can exist as a solid, liquid and gas at everyday temperatures and pressures. Click here to read more in the New York Times.
Putting a net over a fish pond.
In Salem, Oregon
Getting Back Yard Ponds Ready for Winter
Jim Graves installed a PVC pipe structure that held protective netting over his pond last season. The netting can be essential for a pond's health by keeping leaves out. Leaves cause dangerous gases that could kill koi. The netting also protects fish from hungry birds of prey. Click here to read more.
European Freshwater Fish
From National Geographic Magazine
One-Third of European Freshwater Fish Face Extinction.
Of Europe's 522 freshwater fish species, more than a third are at serious risk of extinction, according to a new threat assessment compiled by World Conservation Union experts. Some of the at-risk species include the critically endangered European eel (top); the Chornaya gudgeon (middle), found only in Ukraine; and the jarabugo (bottom), found in Spain and Portugal. Click here to read more.

Break out of the Mold with Cheap, Easy Pets.

In the picture just above Chris Dalton looks at some of the goldfish available at PetsMart in Asheville. Yes, cats and dogs can add warmth, love and companionship to a home. But they can also add dirt, hairy tumbleweeds, a pile of vet bills, fleas and allergic reactions. That’s why millions of American families have opted for “alternative” pets that are easier and cheaper to maintain. A survey by the American Pet Products Manufacturing Association (APPMA) indicated we are sharing our homes with 16 million birds, 9.6 million saltwater fish, 13.1 million reptiles of various kinds, plus 26.3 million small animals. And that’s not even counting the 142 million freshwater fish in our aquariums. Or the 13.8 million horses and ponies out in our barns. Click here to read more.
Cure for Frog Fungus
In New Zealand
Scientists Claim Cure for Deadly Frog Fungus.

An estimated one-third of the world's amphibian species are facing imminent extinction and one of the biggest killers of frogs has been the deadly chytrid fungal disease. But now scientists in New Zealand claim to have discovered a chytrid cure which comes in the simple form of an antibiotic that is traditionally used in eye drops. "If you were to see a chytrid-infected frog, at first glance you wouldn't notice anything wrong with it, it doesn't have boils or anything, it looks just like a frog," said Associate Professor Russell Poulter from Otago University. Click here to read more.

Guppy Love
The animal kingdom analog of the wedding ring effect is called the guppy syndrome because it was in the guppy that it was first documented. Perhaps it is more properly called mate-choice copying. To observe the effect one takes a large tank filled with female guppies, and adds about the same number of relatively indistinguishable male guppies. It doesn't take too long for the guppies to get adjusted to the new environment and, like any society, they soon begin mating. As is true with most species, it is the females who determine who gets to score, and an odd thing occurs: despite the fact that the males are all pretty much alike, some guys get all the luck, and others are spurned. Click here to read more.

Clown Loaches Spawn in an Aquarium.

From the University of Wisconsin
Phosphorous Fertilizer Bans are Ignoring Science.
Bans on lawn fertilizer containing phosphorous are being considered in several communities in the Upper Midwest, with some new bans already approved and taking effect in January 2008. The proposed bans are in response to excessive plant and algae growth in some ponds, streams, and lakes. However, studies conducted by scientists at the University of Wisconsin indicate phosphorous bans will actually make the problem worse. Click here to read more.
From Vietnam
High Tech Lake Clean-up to Save Legendary Turtle.
Pollution threatens the lake that is the heart and soul of Vietnam's capital of Hanoi, and a legendary turtle who lives below its murky waters, but now a high-tech solution may be at hand to save them both. Over the next three years, in time for Hanoi's 1,000th birthday in 2010, scientists intend to clean up Hoan Kiem Lake, home to the creature that symbolises Vietnam's centuries-old struggle for independence. Vietnamese and German experts say they will use a new device, which borrows from the designs of corkscrews, submarines and tanks, to suck several metres (feet) of toxic sludge from the bottom of the 'Lake of the Returned Sword'. The 2.4-million-dollar project will be a delicate one. The famed, algae-green lake is home to an elusive turtle that is a key figure in Vietnam folklore. In a story that every Vietnamese child learns at school, the 15th century farmer-turned-rebel leader Le Loi used a magical sword to drive out Chinese invaders and found the dynasty named after him. Click here to read more.
