Q&A - Rotifers

By Rob Toonen

Rob, I've been reading your column for a while now, and I have seen you mention rotifers a few times. What exactly are rotifers, and why are they so important? Arnold Arnold, Although rotifers are a small and generally uninteresting group to almost everyone else, they are quite well known among marine aquarists as the food of choice for breeding most saltwater fishes and many invertebrates. The topic of breeding marine fish or invertebrates is far too complicated to cover here, but there are some excellent books available that cover breeding of various marine fishes and more.

Product Review of The Ultimate DI System

Manufactured by SpectraPure

Product Review ­ The Ultimate DI System (Written 2003 - checkout their newer models) Very early last year I was in the Phoenix Arizona area visiting several aquarium product companies. I normally checkout the area on a monthly basis, only 160 kilometers north of where I live in Tucson, because their population and selection of shops is so much greater than our Tucson area. One of my stops was at the SpectraPure (1) facility to check on the availability of what was rumored to be a new type Deionization (DI) system. Unfortunately, the owner was away on a business trip, however, his wife more.

Q&A Letter Spotlight

Harry Haley (Yorktown, Va.) writes to Bob about: Power Cords & Electrical

Dear Mr. Goemans, I thoroughly enjoy your Sand Mail column in FAMA each Month. Thanks for always wonderful information. My question is unrelated to sand beds, but I turn to you with faith that with your experience you can provide some answers. I have been using multi-socket power cords in the stand of my 125 gal reef tank. One recently burned out and I have to replace it. The problem is that all the multi-sockets and surge protectors I find say at least "not for wet or damp areas." Some, such as one model on sale at a pet shop, specifically state "Should not be used with aquariums." more.
