Carp Gudgeon Fish
Upper Katherine River, Northern Territory, Australia
New Species of Gudgeon Discovered
AQUARIUM keepers around the world are scrambling to get their hands on a new species of fish, discovered in an abandoned uranium mine in the Northern Territory. A breeding program is now underway to protect the rare native freshwater fish Hypseleotris barrawayi, otherwise known as the Barraway's Carp Gudgeon, shown above. Helen Larson, curator of fishes at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, said the new species was discovered in the upper Katherine River system - the only area in the world where it is known to live. “The fish were first discovered in the abandoned uranium mine pit and neighbouring billabongs at the abandoned Sleisbeck Camp in Kakadu National Park,” she said. Click here to read more.

Steinhart curator Bart Shepherd, shown above on the left, and Matt Wandell move a 40-pound coral specimen into the aquarium's huge tank. The Grand Reopening is scheduled for Sept. 27, 2008 at the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Click here to read more.
In Myanmar
Good Year for Fish Discoveries
In the picture, shown above top, is a new species of Eel-Loach, Pangio lumbriciformis, from Myanmar. Underneath is the radiograph image used to help identify it as a new species. The number of fish species in Myanmar grew by 17 last year, of which eight were due to the detective skills of Natural History Museum ichthyologist (fish expert), Dr Ralf Britz. Ralf described two snakeheads, four eel-loaches and two spiny eels, all of which are popular aquarium fish. Some were gathered during Ralf's scientific expeditions to the Southeast Asian country last year, and others were identified from samples collected in previous expeditions or from other specimen collections. Click here to read more.

In Antarctica
Small Sea Creatures may be the "Canaries in the Coal Mine" of Climate Change.
As oceans warm and become more acidic, ocean creatures are undergoing severe stress and entire food webs are at risk, according to scientists at a press briefing this morning at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston. Gretchen Hofmann, associate professor of biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, has just returned from a research mission to Antarctica where she collected pteropods, tiny marine snails, like the one shown above, the size of a lentil, that she refers to as the "potato chip" of the oceans because they are eaten widely by so many species. Pteropods are eaten by fish that are in turn consumed by other animals, such as penguins. As these small creatures are stressed by an increasingly acidic ocean, due to the build-up of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, they are less able to cope with a warmer ocean. Click here to read more.
Chevroned Butterfly Fish
Butterfly Fish "May Face Extinction"
A beautiful Black, White and Yellow Butterflyfish, like the one shown above, is much admired by eco-tourists, divers and aquarium keepers, and may be at risk of extinction, scientists have warned. The case of the Chevroned Butterflyfish is a stark example of how human pressure on the world’s coral reefs is confronting certain species with ‘blind alleys’ from which they may be unable to escape, says Dr Morgan Pratchett of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and James Cook University. In a study published in the journal Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology Dr Pratchett and Dr Michael Berumen of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA) warn that the highly specialized nature of the feeding habits of this particular Butterflyfish – the distinctively patterned Chaetodon trifascialis - make it an extinction risk as the world’s coral reefs continue to degrade due to human over-exploitation, pollution and climate change. Click here to read more.

Krill in Antarctica
In Antarctica
Krill Discovered Living In The Antarctic Abyss.
Scientists have discovered Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), shown above, living and feeding down to depths of 3000 metres in the waters around the Antarctic Peninsula. Until now this shrimp-like crustacean was thought to live only in the upper ocean. The discovery completely changes scientists' understanding of the major food source for fish, squid, penguins, seals and whales. Reporting recently in Current Biology, scientists from British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton* (NOCS) describe how they used a deep-diving, remotely operated vehicle (RoV ) known as the Isis to film previously unknown behaviour of krill. Click here to read more.
Python Map
In Florida
Python Snakes, could Spread to One Third Of US.
Burmese pythons—an invasive species in south Florida—could find comfortable climatic conditions in roughly a third of the United States according to new "climate maps", like to one shown above, developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Although other factors such as type of food available and suitable shelter also play a role, Burmese pythons and other giant constrictor snakes have shown themselves to be highly adaptable to new environments. Click here to read more.

A Letter from Maggie S.
Hello, my name is Maggie S. I have used your web sites for a couple of years now. I have graduated my introductory fish stage where I was keeping Guppies in a 10-gallon aquarium. I now have a 29-gallon community tank that my family enjoys in our dining room. I have a pair of angelfish, five red velvet swordtails, two peppered corys, and three otocinclus catfish. I also have a 165-gallon outdoor pond with a mixture of goldfish and their fry.  ...  I have developed skill to identify males from female angelfish after they get to be about two inches in diameter ... I have included a diagram that I drew ... (shown above) ... thank you both for your wonderful web site information. It has made my fish keeping experience much more enjoyable ... I enjoy fish keeping so much that I am planning to go to college to study Aquatic and Marine Biology at a university in Ohio ... Sincerely Maggie S.
