A big special thanks to Robert for his continuing contributions to Pet Fish Talk. It is not easy to search the internet and find all of these interesting stories and do it every week. Robert is a big time friend of Pet Fish Talk. Robert, thanks again.
Quite unfortunately, on May 2nd, Xylon, my African leaf fish (Polycentropsis abbreviata) passed away. I have more info about that on my blog, and also a photo album (with good photos!), enjoy.
Angelfish getting ready to Spawn again.
These two Angelfish spawned a few weeks ago, and they are getting ready to spawn again. In this picture they're "cleaning a spot" on the siphon tube that drains water into the the filter. The fish on the left is the male Leopard Veiltail Angel, and the fish on the right is a female Gold Veiltail Angel. These Angelfish are two color varieties of the same species. Tom and Nevin will talk about these Angels in the next Pet Fish Talk Show. You are invited to call during the show and talk about Pet Fish.
New Plecos. in the Angelfish Aquarium
Just above is a female Bushymouth Plecostomus. She has just a few very short tentacles around her mouth. Last Wednesday Nevin brought three new Bushymouths to join the one male Bushymouth in the Angelfish Aquarium.
New Sterbai Corydoras Catfish
Nevin also brought ten Corydoras sterbai, Armored Catfish, and put them in the Angelfish Aquarium. You can see this fish has some orange coloration in its paired pectoral and pelvic fins. Like the Bushymouths the Sterbai are wild fish from South America.
Tré, shown above, more Colorful than ever
As mentioned several times, he's a mature male Labeotropheus trewavasae. His ancestors lived in Lake Malawi in East Africa. He was born on a fish farm in Florida. On Saturday I noticed that he was more colorful than ever. Then I saw why. One of his daughters had a mouthful of eggs.
Tré's Daughter with a Mouthful of Fresh Eggs
The picture just above shows Tré's daughter with a mouthful of fresh eggs. She is about 2.5" long and about 8-months old. She was born in this aquarium. Tré is now more than 5" long. Apparently Tré and this female had spawned just before I saw them.
