No Straw November
No Straw November is a movement to raise awareness about single-use plastics such as plastic straws. In conjunction with Palo Alto High School's environmental clubs, we have collected over 200 pledges to abstain from using non-compostable, single-use straws during the month of November.

Archaea in aquaria
Currently, the commonly-held belief within the aquaria community is that a number of bacteria—Nitrosomonas, Nitrosospira, Nitrobacter, and Nitrospira—are primarily responsible for the conversion of ammonia to nitrite to nitrate.
The future of aquaria
Fishkeeping is an age-old practice, but it is still constantly evolving. What does the future hold? We're asking aquarists from around the world what they think. What will aquaria look like in ten years? One hundred?
Climate change
Climate change has negative impacts on fish and other aquatic animals. This article was written for Get Involved Foundation's first “Hack for Social Good” as part of Global Youth Service Day.
