List of marine aquarium fish species

The following list of marine aquarium fish species available in the aquarium trade is not a comprehensive list. A brief section on each, with a link to the page about the particular species is provided along with references for further information; these large fish are considered to be quite hardy, but because of their size may present a significant challenge to the keeper. They need up to 180 gallons to house one for its entire lifespan. Two angels might be kept in the same aquarium provided it is a large aquarium, they are properly acclimated as juveniles, they have different colouring and body shape. However, because all Angelfish have the same diet, mixing them is a feat that should be left to only advanced keepers. None are reef safe, a potential owner should be aware that they need to have plenty of vegetable matter in their diet, they undergo major changes in colouration while maturing, unless specified given descriptions are for adult specimens. Although Dwarf Angelfish are smaller and more manageable than their larger counterparts, they still have some specific care requirements.

They are omnivores, but plenty of vegetable matter, preferably in the form of macroalgae, should be provided for their grazing pleasure. Their suitability for reef tanks is hotly debated. Specimens that have been maintained in reef aquaria include the Flame and Coral Beauty angels. However, for obvious reasons they should not be put into tanks with expensive decorative macroalgae. Although Anthias resemble damsels in shape and size, the two should never be confused. Anthias are many starve to death in captivity. In the wild, they eat zooplankton, will not accept anything else in the aquarium, they need to be fed nearly three times a day at least. The best way to ensure the health and longevity of an Anthias is to attach a refugium where copepods can be grown to "drip" into the display tank. Unlike many other saltwater aquarium inhabitants, they can be kept in groups. In this exceedingly large group of fish, few are considered proper aquarium inhabitants, for various reasons including diet and size.

Basses vary from species to species. Appropriate research should be done before purchasing a specimen. Many unsuspecting hobbyists bring home cute little specimens of popular aquarium fish such as the lyretail grouper, only to realize several months that they do not have the resources to care for a meter-long that may cost hundreds of dollars a month to feed. Basslets and Assessors are small, long bodied fish resembling Anthias, their care requirements, are closer to those of damsels. They should be kept individually, not with other fish of similar shape and colour. Feeding is easy: they will eat any meaty foods offered. Good water quality should be maintained at all times. Batfish are gorgeous and striking fish that are not common in aquaria for one major reason: they get huge. A two or three hundred gallon tank is needed for one and larger is better, they start out as tiny, manageable-looking cuties, which fools aquarists into purchasing them for their small aquariums. However they grow to gargantuan proportions, require large amounts of food as well as space, so beware.

They should be fed plenty of large meaty foods. Batfish change as they grow, however the potential aquarist is most to see them in their juvenile form, so, the description of the colouration here, they all have the same body shape: disk-like with tall dorsal and anal fins, similar to a Freshwater Angelfish. Blennies are popular aquarium fish, for good reason. Most of them are peaceful to other fish, while aggressive to other blennies which has a similar shape; some blennis are colorful, many are downright helpful. For example, the aptly named Lawnmower Blenny will keep your green algae well trimmed and presentable. With the exception of Fang Blennies, Blennies are reef safe- in fact a reef environment is best for them because they can be shy and the intricate rockwork of a reef provides ample hiding spaces, they should be fed a varied diet of frozen or live foods and plant matter. Blennies do not have teeth or functional jaw, so food must be small enough for them to swallow whole. Blennies are confused with Gobies, but there is an easy way to tell the difference.

Gobies have two distinct dorsal fins, Blennies have a single dorsal fin that runs the length of their body. Gobies' pelvic fins are fused to form a sucker, similar to Remoras; the engineer goby is a close relative of cichlids and leaf fishes, the juvenile can be found in aquarium trade, while the adult is rare. Members of the family Tetraodontidae, Blowfish or Pufferfish and their cousins Cowfishes and Porcupinefishes can be personable and quirky pets, for the prepared, they are not thought of as an ordinary aquarium tank mate, but are gaining popularity. They do pose a hazard in the community tank however, they are capable of releasing a powerful toxin which can kill other fish and in some cases, the boxfish itself. They only use it when threatened or dying, but can become disturbed with aggressive tank mates or overcrowded aquarium, they are reef safe, though they will pick at invertebrates if not fed well enough. Many people think puffed up Pufferfish, like in the picture, are cute, but an owner should never subject their pet to this as they are unable to expel the air should they be out of the water.

To prevent this, never remove a puffer from the water. When properly car

He proposed to his girlfriend on senior night, prior to Kentucky's home game against Vanderbilt. In April 2017, he attended the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in Virginia. After going undrafted, Willis was signed by the Detroit Pistons of the NBA as a part of their training camp roster, before being reassigned to the Pistons' G League affiliate Grand Rapids Drive. In his professional debut on November 3, 2017, he provided the game-winning tip-in in Grand Rapids' 86-85 victory over the Erie BayHawks. Making 43 G League appearances as a first-year player, Willis averaged 11.8 points and 6.9 rebounds per contest. In late July 2018, Willis inked a deal with BG Göttingen of the German Basketball Bundesliga, he saw action in 34 Bundesliga games, averaging 12.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per contest for the "Violets". On July 22, 2019, he signed a two-year deal with German Bundesliga outfit Ratiopharm Ulm, known as "The Sparrows."

Network of Spiritual Progressives

The Network of Spiritual Progressives is an international political and social justice movement based in the United States that seeks to influence American politics towards more humane, progressive values. The organization challenges what it perceives as the misuse of religion by political conservatives and the anti-religious attitudes of many liberals. In the international sphere, the NSP seeks to foster inter-religious understanding and work for social justice; the NSP was founded in 2005 by Rabbi Michael Lerner, who serves as co-director of the organization with Cornel West and Sister Joan Chittister. More than 1,200 activists attended each of the group's conferences in Berkeley and Washington, D. C.. As of December 2007, the NSP had chapters in 31 states as well as Toronto, Canada; the Network of Spiritual Progressives was founded based on three basic tenets: Changing the bottom line in America. Challenging the misuse of religion and spirit by the Religious Right. Challenging the many anti-religious and anti-spiritual assumptions and behaviors that have become part of the liberal culture.
