Fish in the News from Robert in New Jersey
Hi Tom & Nevin, here is this weeks fish in the news. I hope all is well with Nevins daughter. Tom have you listened to last weeks show? I have not had a chance to but I have a nagging feeling we reversed nitrite and nitrates.
Thanks to you Nevin for shipping the Xtreme Cichlid Diet food it arrived yesterday just in time. I was stretching out the food and the last crumbs went in the tank yesterday morning.
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.
Here is the same young mature male Leopard Veiltail Angelfish that had his tail toward the camera in the picture on last weeks Listening Guide. Click here to see that picture.
Leopold , a Male Leopard Angelfish
Shown above is another picture of the same Angelfish. He really needs a name. How about Leopold? If you've got a better name call and talk about it with Tom and Nevin during the show.
Here are two nice young Corydoras sterbai catfish that now live in Tom's 55-gallon Angelfish Aquarium. The Dwarf Armored Catfish are some of the very best aquarium fish.
The picture just above shows a close up of one of the Sterbai Cory Catfish. Notice the interesting catfish barbules around its mouth.
Above, quick another snapshot of one of the new Corydoras sterbai that's using its barbules to scour the gravel for tidbits to eat. These dwarf catfish are now about 1" long and really wonderful aquarium fish.
Tré Still Dazzling and Energetic
Tré gets his picture posted just about every week. Tom can't seem to take his camera off Tré.
Julius Hunting for Small Fish in Dim Light.
The aquarium lights were off, and Julius began to hunting for small fish. Maybe his eyes are specially adapted to dim light, so he can hunt in dim light. His ancestors lived in Lake Victoria in East Africa. He was born on a fish farm in Florida. He's temporarily called Haplochromis species 44, and he often does something surprising.
Angels Growing and Looking Better each Day.
This is a snapshot taken this week of one of the Angels in Tom's 55-gallon Angelfish Aquarium. Until now this fish has been very mild, but in the last few days it's become more aggressive. It's probably a female that is filling with eggs. As listeners to recent shows know, this is a Gold Marbled Angel with one gene for marble, so it has fewer dark markings than an Angel with two genes for marble.
This Mbuna Male has Recovered.
This young male Mbuna lost a big fight in the 55-gallon Mbuna Aquarium. You can still see dark wound marks just below his dorsal fin. He was moved to the 29-gallon aquarium, which is actually the same aquarium that's shown at the top of this page, before heavy mats of algae started growing on the Cichlid Stones. This fish has completely recovered in about 2-weeks. He's probably a Pseudotropheus Maylandia greshakei. He was raised on a fish farm, but his ancestors lived on Makokola Reef in southern Lake Malawi in East Africa. Click here to see a nice map.
An Interesting Email from Kevin in the UK
Hi guys, Just seen this video on YouTube you may like. It covers the reproduction cycle of the Blue Acara and was made in 1957 by the Moody Institute of Science.
Will try and call during the next show and discuss it but the time difference between you and me (UK) makes it a little difficult. All the best, keep up the good show! Kevin in the UK
