Neotropical Cichlids and Catfish !
The video, just above, shows one of Tom's 55-gallon aquariums, and you can see several Eartheaters scooping up mouthfuls of gravel, a Jack Dempsey, a Texas Cichlid, a long whiskered Pictus Catfish, a large Plecostomus Catfish, and several smaller Corydoras Catfish. The aquarium also contains a Severum Cichlid that did not appear.
ID-Quiz for Fun !!
Each week we post some new pictures here on the Listening
Guide for this week's show, and we leave the names off.
It will be a good exercise for you to try to identify the
item in each picture. Some pictures will probably be easy to
identify, but others will probably be difficult. Tom and
Nevin will identify each picture during the first few
minutes of this show.
Callers during this Show ;^ }
Gareth in Sheffield, UK, calls and talks about spawning his Furcata Rainbowfish on mops in his 75-gallon aquarium. Gareth reports getting lots of eggs, but so far the eggs turn from clear to white and do not hatch. Nevin says when eggs die they turn white. Tom says the eggs may need different water with less minerals. Then Gareth says he got a male and two female Endler's Livebearer for Christmas, and they've had 4 babies already. These are the first baby fish in Gareth's aquarium. Gareth recently bought three Synodontis multipunctatus to add to the 20 to 30 rather expensive fish living in his big aquarium. Tom asks Gareth if it is worth it. Gareth says he loves watching his fish and rarely watches his TV now. ;^ }
Jennifer from Florida calls and talks her three new aquariums: a 36-gallon bow-front aquarium, plus 30-gallon and a 55-gallon aquariums. She planned to put Peacocks and Haps from Lake Malawi in the 55, but then learned 55-gallons is too small for those fish but asks about keeping Angelfish in the 55-gallon aquarium. Tom says that worked great in his 55-gallon aquarium. Jennifer asks how many Angels, and Tom says about 6 to 8. ;^ }
