News:
Jeremy: 512-year old shark, oldest living vertebrate, found in the North Atlantic. Scientists believe this 18-foot Greenland Shark to be 512 years old and the oldest living vertebrate in the world. With the help of a mathematical model analyzing the lens and the cornea that linked size with age, researchers found a way to predict age. The method to discover the age of the animal was determined last year. – http://bit.ly/2Fwo5LW

Tip of the Week:
It’s getting to be one of those times of year where storms are a raging and power outages can happen. Have a contingency plan! A generator or battery backup can be a real lifesaver. Blankets or some type of insulation to wrap around your tank can help to keep temp up a bit. Temperature and gas exchange are the most important things to keep stable during an outage, your tank can survive without lighting for 3-4 days without too much stress. On that note make sure to lower your lighting intensity for a day or two after a prolonged dark period, allowing your inhabitants to re-acclimate.
