Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
Weekly Fish 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.
Fish in the News from Brandon in West LA

Hi Tom & Nevin, I don't know if Robert in New Jersey has already sent this one in or not, but here we are.

Callers during this Show  ;^ }
Gareth from Sheffield in the UK calls and talks about several topics including raising micro worms to feed to his baby fish. Gareth says the worms are easy and cheap to raise. Click here to hear the pet Fish Talk Show titled Live Foods for Pet Fish". ;^ }
After the show Kathleen in Clovis sent us an email, asking about the identification of the Plecostomus that Tom mentioned having in his aquarium? Actually Tom has several different Plecostomus species, including a Marbled Sailfin Pleco, a Golden Marbled Sailfin, two White Spotted Sailfin Plecos, three Bushy Nose Plecos, two Rubber Nose Plecos, and the one he was thinking about, but could not remember the name of during the show.
It's a Three Beacon Pleco, whose scientific name is Leporacanthicus triactis, and it's a rare Plecostomus from the Orinoco. Gareth also sent an email, asking about Tom's special Pleco. Tom wrote back with the name, and Gareth wrote back saying Tom is very lucky to have that fish!
Kathleen also wants to see some pictures. Here are a few that were taken by Tom in one of his aquariums.

Scientists have apparently examined wild Three Beacon Plecos and found their stomachs full of freshwater sponges. This could worry aquarists, who might think this fish will be difficult to feed, but it eats premium fish food and does very well in aquariums.

During this show the Bailey Bothers answer several emails about raising fish outdoors, which they have done, about aquarium lighting, and about using R/O water to adjust aquarium water chemistry. ;^ }
