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
Hey Tom & Nevin, Brandon from West Los Angeles again with another 'Head-Scratcher' that I REALLY hope is totally benevolent ... http://news.yahoo.com/ ... 23417
T.T.F.N.!! ~Brandon :)
An Email from Bridget in Frankfort, Kentucky
Dear Tom and Nevin,
I made a you tube video of my tinfoil barbs and blood parrot fish in my 200 gallon tank and thought you guys might like to watch. I have had this tank set up since 2005 and have two filters on the tank, a Fluval fx5 canister and a Marineland bio wheel filter. I also have two heaters. I do a 20 percent water change once a week and feed them Omega One food. They seem to be growing well. My two largest barbs are about 15 inches long and the other 4 are about 8 inches long.
When I bought them the 8 inch barbs were small and have grown. The largest barbs were already that size when I seen them at my LFS and I just had to get them. My family has really enjoyed the tank. We have only had one small issue. We have to make sure the tank is covered well because the tinfoil barbs are jumpers and one jumped out of the tank. Fortunately I was there at the time and I put him back in the tank and he recovered from "his near death" experience well.
Reply. Hi Bridget, Thank you for your email and the link to your video. Think of it! 15" long Tin Foil Barbs! Magnificent. With rich color in their fins and a shinny metallic sheen on their bodies. Thanks again.
