Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
Segment One. 
First we quickly summarize last week's show. Then ...
Larry from Washington, D.C., calls and asks Tom and Nevin about charcoal and the pH in his new 29-gallon aquarium?
Nevin summarizes an interesting article with new information about Piranhas. Click here to read the entire article now.
Adrian from Denver, Colorado, calls and says he's got a 75-gallon aquarium with African Cichlids that are getting "bloat". Adrian asks if Clout would be effective in treating "bloat"? Tom and Nevin talk at length about what they know about "Malawi Bloat" and how to treat it.
Tom and Nevin also explain how to thaw, rinse, and feed frozen brine shrimp to aquarium fish.
Segment Two. 
We continue to talk with Adrian about feeding frozen brine shrimp. Tom and Nevin reminisce about importing African Cichlids from Lake Malawi a long time ago, including a fish that Tom and Nevin named "Pseudotropheus grafi", after their friend Bob Graf.
Pseudotropheus grafi, a species that way named by Tom and Nevin Bailey.   Here is a picture of Pseudotropheus grafi, the fish species that Tom and Nevin Bailey named after their friend Bob Graf.
Pseudotropheus renati, an Mbuna Cichlid, that was named by Tom and Nevin Bailey.   This is another Mbuna Cichlid from Lake Malawi that Tom and Nevin named Pseudotropheus renati, but they can't remember why now.
  Tom and Nevin sold this Mbuna Cichlid to a friend, who named it Jackson. So Tom and Nevin named the species Pseudotropheus jacksoni.
Tom and Nevin explain that long ago they imported fish from Lake Malawi, and each shipment contained a few species that they'd never seen before or after. The pictures shown above contain examples of some of those fish.
After Adrian hangs up, Tom and Nevin continue to discuss African Cichlids getting Bloat disease and more generally about stress and disease.
Abraham says he's interested in keeping Swordtails and Guppies and wonders if those fish species will do better in a 40-gallon tall aquarium or a 40-gallon long aquarium.
We get an email asking what to do about aquarium water with low pH and high nitrates?
Segment Three. 
Molly says there's an oily film on the water in her fish bowl. Is this a problem?
Nick says he found one Guppy fry and wants to know if this is normal?
Lydia W. wants to know how long fish are pregnant? And how often do they have babies?
Josh from Ohio calls and says he got the 50-gallon aquarium, and he wants to know if putting sand on the bottom of his new aquarium is a good idea? We also talk about canister aquarium filters.
Tom and Nevin talk about testing aquarium water. 
Segment Four. 
A nurse from our mother's doctor calls to remind her about her appointment. Momma B. tells Tom and Nevin that she feels fine.
Aaron from Ohio calls and says he is still trying to set up his Paludarium. Click here to see pictures of Aaron's project, building his own Paludarium.
Randy has 40-gallon hex-aquarium and his male molly is very aggressive to his female.
Carl from Albuquerque says he owns a canister filter, and it takes more maintenance than Penguin and Emperor Filters.
Josh says there is a brownish slime on the pad in his aquarium filter. Tom says this might be cyanobacteria.
