A nice Parkinson's Rainbowfish
This fellow has been living in Tom's 29-gallon aquarium for a couple of months. His orange marked areas expand as he grows bigger. This show starts with Tom and Nevin talking about each fish that's shown on this page.
A Venezuelan Eartheater Cichlid
This was just a small 1.5" to 2" long tan fish, when imported wild from the rainforests in Venezuela about 6-months ago. Since then he's been living in one of Tom's 55-gallon aquariums, where he's grown to be about 6" long. Each day he gets more colorful, and it's lots of fun watching him constantly churn one mouthful of gravel after another to extract tiny bits of food. This is a wonderful aquarium fish.
A young Jack Dempsey Cichlid
This young fellow has also grown up in one of Tom's 55-gallon aquariums. He's now about 6" long. A week or two ago he was mostly pink and orange. Now he's is about 50% black and blue, and soon he'll be almost entirely black and blue. This is an ornery aggressive fish that is not suitable for most aquariums but loved by aquarists, who have one.
A Pictus Catfish swimming in Tom's Aquarium.
Wow! What a wonderful Catfish, shown here, watching Tom take pictures. Those whiskers are actually longer than this fish's body, and just look at that happy-go-lucky smile. This is a wonderful aquarium fish.
Hi Tom and Nevin, there are two stories this week that should peek your interest one being the math class at the aquarium the other is more of a challenge as itís in your back yard so to speak. I think I speak for the audience in that you should go see the underwater pumpkin carving and give us a firsthand account of how itís done. Now come on everyone send Tom an email of encouragement to go on this adventure ! Your friend, Robert in NJ
Tom in Portland, Oregon, calls and asks about how to get rid of small snails in his aquarium?
Brad in Troy, Michigan, calls and says he recently saw a fish in a local fish store, and one of the store's employees said the fish was a killifish. Brad promises to send us a picture taken in his cell-phone, while he was in the store.
