Notes From the Plymouth Aquarium. III.

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  11 May 2009

The present notes (see also Wilson, 1949, 1953) are mainly concerned with the breeding habits of two fishes commonly kept in marine aquaria. These habits may be familiar to keepers of other large marine aquaria, but I have failed to find any account of them in scientific literature other than a very brief and inadequate description by Raffaele (1898, p. 328) of the nesting of Cantharus vulgaris (= Spondyliosoma cantharus) in the aquarium at Naples. The scientific names of species mentioned follow the Plymouth Marine Fauna third edition (Marine Biological Association, 1957)
