DARPA Wants to Turn Sea Life Into a Giant Submarine Detection Network

Mar 07, 2019 - 8:44 PM - by Gary R
Gary R's Avatar

DARPA is embarking on an undersea submarine detection system so weird it may just work. The Pentagon’s research and development arm wants to learn the behaviors of undersea animals including fish, shrimp, and microscopic phytoplankton so it can use them to detect manned and unmanned submarines passing by. Such a network would enhance the U.S. military’s ability to detect even the quietest... [Read More]

Capable of swimming at speeds of up to 74 km/h (46 mph), the shortfin mako is the world's fastest species of shark. Scientists now have a new understanding of how it's able to reach such speeds, and they believe that their findings could be applied to improving human technology.
As is the case with other sharks, the skin of the shortfin mako is covered with tiny scales known as denticles.... [Read More]

A team of scientists has sequenced the entire genome of the great white shark, revealing a few clues as to how these animals are so good at healing wounds and resisting cancer.
Sharks are fascinating creatures, sitting proudly at the top of the ocean food chain for millions... [Read More]

Odd Swimming Behavior

Dec 19, 2018 - 6:15 PM - by JellyKat
My sunset platy, Solana, is not her usual self this morning. She is grazing the bottom of the tank and did not even come up for breakfast when she is usually the first one there. Instead she is hiding in the crawl space between the heater and the glass. I see no ich spots on her, nor are any of her fins clamped to her, nor do I believe she is pregnant as she gave birth two weeks ago and is not nearly as big.
Her tankmates include a green lantern named Azure and the surviving fry in the... [Read More]

Mickey Mouse Platy in Hiding!

Nov 09, 2018 - 5:30 AM - by JellyKat
I am new to aquariums and after being told how to properly set up, recently purchased a sunset platy (Solana) and a gold mickey mouse platy (Daffodil). I have literally had these fish for a day and am experiencing some troubles with locating Daffodil. She seems to be a bit shyer than Solana but I don't see any tension or bullying between them. Both were swimming about this morning before feeding and both were out and about when I returned home from work. My husband is home before me a couple... [Read More]

Was feeding my fish on Sunday, and after this I nipped out with the Mrs shopping.

After getting back a hour later I sat down to watch some Telly in my fish room, then after about five minutes I could just hear a faint noise coming from behind my fish tank, at that point I knew this was a fish that had jumped out and it could of been there for some time
