Anybody watching the new "Cosmos"?

I remember watching the original series years ago with my family. The new version is well worth checking out, whether you saw the old one or not.

It's happened a few times recently. They usually get it fixed in a day or two, but it's a bummer when it's down. Best site of it's kind, IMO.

The store that I worked at in high school carried baby sturgeon seasonally.

Just do your research. They're not really difficult to keep, but they are pretty specialized fish.

In brief, they'll appreciate a large, well- planted tank, with caves and hiding places, and...

Personally, I'd stick with a species tank for pipefish. As you know, they're very specialized fish, very slow, deliberate feeders. Pretty much opposite end of the spectrum from hyper-active...

What it comes down to is that, with few exceptions, most fish will eat other fish if the size difference allows it. It has nothing to do with peacefulness or aggression, per se. It's just what fish...

Looks like a leech to me. If you look closely, there appears to be a sucker at each end.

When it moves, does it glide smoothly, or inchworm-style?

I'm not sure I'd worry about it.

The purists start with fish collected from a known locale (or descended from such stock). That's the only way you can truly know what you have.
