Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
Segment One. 
Craig says a water main near his home recently burst, and he wonders if he should take precautions before putting water from his faucet in his aquarium? Click here for more about aquarium Water Conditioner.
Jackie from Tampa, Florida, calls and says she has two Betta Geezers named Slippery and Splash. Jackie says that Jim in West Virginia is her brother, and Rebekah is her niece! Jackie has a pond  in her backyard with a plant called Hydrilla, and she needs to get some Triploid Grass Carp to eat the Hydrilla, but she must install a  barrier to cover the culvert that draining from her pond, so the Carps can't escape. We think that Aquatic Eco-Systems at 1-877-347-4788 can  help Jackie obtain the barrier to cover the culvert. Click here to go to their website now.
Evan from Colorado calls and wants to know if he can keep a Black Mystery Snail in his 30-gallon flat-back hex-aquarium with one tablespoon of aquarium salt per five gallons of water?

Nevin reads a comment that says, "Not all BIO-Wheel filters are created equal."
Segment Two. 
Ronnie from Missouri calls and says, "It's 17 degrees now, and it's suppose to be 0 degrees tonight." Tom and Nevin recall that once long ago it got very cold in San Diego. So they had to cover their aquariums to keep them warm. Ronnie says he heats his fish room to about 80 degrees. Ronnie says he prefers to get his fancy brood stock Bettas from Thailand, because those Bettas are about twice the size at the same age. Tom, Nevin, and Ronnie all agree that raising fish in ponds is more natural and has the potential to produce superior fish. Ronnie says he gets about four Betta spawns a month, and he gets about 50 baby Betta fish per spawn. Ronnie says the Black-Melano Female Bettas are infertile, and so to breed Black Bettas he has to use ... Click here to go to Ronnie's web site about Betta Fish.
Josh says he's set up a new aquarium and has been advised by his local fish store not to change any water so the beneficial bacteria won't be removed. He wonders if this is good advice?
Mike calls and says he has two ten gallon aquariums, and he is setting up a new 46-gallon aquarium, but he wonders if he should add a Mystery Snail?
Click here for more about Mystery Snails. Mike says he has four goldfish that hide in a corner of one of his 10-gallon aquariums. Click here for more information about the Recommended Treatment. Mike says one of his Goldfish recently changed color to solid white.
Segment Three. 
Dennis from Spokane, Washington, calls and says we answered his question last week, and that answer forced him to go buy another 80-gallon aquarium! We talk about Dennis' plan to keep lots of livebearers including Guppies, Swordtails, Platies, and Mollies in one of the aquariums and Tetras in the other aquarium. We also talk about salting the water in aquariums. Click here for more about Aquarium Salt.
Tom finishes answering Josh's question from Segment 2 earlier in today's show.
Rebekah from West Virginia calls and Tom tells her that we talked to her aunt during Segment 1 of today's show. Next Rebekah says her Mystery Snail is a speedy sprinter escape-artist. Nevin says most Mystery Snails are escape-artists. We talk about why Mystery Snails like to migrate to other areas. We talk with Rebekah again about her Betta fish that makes sounds. Tom talks about mouth brooding Cichlid females that make sounds to communicate with their babies.
Segment Four. 
We continue to talk with Rebekah from West Virginia, who says she listened to the Pet Fish Talk Show in the Archive about using a small mirror to stimulate her lazy male Betta Fish named Jouvence to build a bubble nest. We talk about Betta Fish and mirrors. Later Rebekah says she has so many baby Guppies now that she can't count them all, and having an aquarium with baby Guppies is lots of fun. We talk about having fun with pet fish in aquariums, fish bowls, and ponds.
Vicky from West Virgina calls, and we talk about the new decals she put on the 5-gallon aquarium that's her Betta's home. We talk about putting accessories around and near aquariums and fish bowls. We also talk about feeding Betta Fish.
