Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
Segment One. 
Bill in Mississippi wants to know if Guppies and Gambusia can crossbreed to produce hybrids?
Gina from Bloomington, Minnesota calls tells more about her Rainbow Cichlids, which are also called Heros because their scientific name is Herotilapia multispinosa, and Gina's pair has produced about 75 fry in her 55-gallon aquarium. Gina also has a 4 inch long pair of Jack Dempseys that have spawned, and Gina says they are very smart and "a blast" to watch.
Josh from Ohio calls and says he got two German Blue Rams, but they wouldn't eat, so he tried feeding some Betta Food. They ate it, and now Josh wonders if Betta Food is good fish Rams? Tom and Nevin talk about good food for fish. Josh also wants to know if the Butterfly Cichlid, which is probably a Trematocranus jacobfreibergi, would be good tank mate for his fish.
Kevin says he has about 6 Kribensis fry and wants to know when to separate them from the parents? Kribensis is the common name of the small cichlid species with scientific name Pelvicachromis pulcher.
Dennis from Spokane calls and says he's had some problems, after his BIO-wheels stopped turning, so he gave his aquarium the Recommended Treatment, and it seemed to help. Tom and Nevin give some additional comments about the Recommended Treatment.
Segment Two. 
We continue talking with Dennis about the Recommended Treatment and Quick Cure. We also talk about treating sick fish and why choosing an affective antibiotic is unlikely without an expensive sensitivity test. Then we talk about using Aquarium Salt to help sick fish.
Dennis also asks about an oily sheen on the surface of the water in his Tetra Aquarium with Columbian Tetras?
Dennis also asks about how to acclimate the fish that will soon be delivered to him from Click here to read about how to acclimate fish.
Anna from Long Island, New York, calls about her Betta Fish that is swollen and floating at the surface of the water. We talk with Anna about Metrozole (
Metronidazole) and Chloromycetin (Chloramphenicol) for treating bloat in fishes. We give Anna some more tips about helping her fish.
Segment Three. 
Carl from Albuquerque calls and says he's been having a new problem with a layer of clear slime on everything in his aquarium. We talk about this problem, about some things that might help, and about some things that won't help and could makes things worse.
