Listening Guide

Segment One. 
Fish in the News: Nevin summarizes a story titled, "Dog's life for retailers as pet couture takes off." from MSNBC. The Petshotel in Huntingdon, Long Island, is not just an eccentric kennel aimed at a small group of pet owners. With space for more than 100 dogs and 20 cats, it is operated by Petsmart, the largest pet shop and pet supplies retailer in the US. Click here to read the entire story.
George from St. Croix, Wisconsin, calls and talks about his baby Mollies, and we talk with George about how to feed baby Mollies. Click here for more about feeding baby Mollies.
Tom and Nevin talk about what to do with your pet fish, when you go on vacation. Click here for more about that, and here for even more.
Evan M. from Colorado asks about using R/O Water or Distilled Water in his new marine aquarium? Tom and Nevin talk about using R/O water in aquariums.
Segment Two. 
Tom and Nevin continue to talk about using R/O water in freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
Evan from Colorado calls and says he's now using R/O water, that he combines with synthetic marine salts to make water for his new marine aquarium. We talk about protein skimmers and water chemistry including nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia. Then we talk about biological filtration in a marine aquarium. Tom says a filter with a BIO-Wheel is usually not suitable in a marine aquarium. Tom asks Even to find out what is the appropriate biological filter for his marine aquarium, then to call back and give Tom the answer. Evan also mentions that he has a UV-Filter on his marine aquarium.
Evan also wants to know about keeping just one Freshwater Angelfish. Click here for more information about Angels.
Finally, Evan says he reduced the gravel in his aquarium from 1.5" deep to 1/4" as recommended by Tom and Nevin, and his aquariums are much cleaner. Evan says his aquariums look better with 1/4" of gravel.
Segment Three. 
Dennis from Spokane calls and says he found the strangest worms in his filter. Tom and Nevin give advice about what to do if you find strange worms in your aquarium filter. Then we talk about Dennis' Black Mollies and how to buy healthy fish. Dennis says that he's always "on the prowl" looking for problems in his aquariums and dealing with those problems, while they are still small problems.
Tom announces that a dear friend and wonderful aquarist, John H. Rosenberger, who was born on October 27, 1922 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, died on July 15, 2005 in San Diego, California.
Tom reminisces about experiences with John and about visits to his home to see his fish. Many of those fish were in plywood boxes in John's backyard, which was very surprising at the time. John was always very friendly and very modest about his skill.
John loved killiefish including Cynolebias nigripinnis, Aphyosemion species, Roloffia species, and many others. Click here to see pictures of Roloffia, here to see pictures of Cynolebias nigripinnis, and here to see pictures of Aphyosemions.
John and his father Karl R. Rosenberger formed the Cameron Highlanders Pipe Band in 1946. Click here to see a picture of the band, but I can't recognize John in the picture, if he's in it.
Segment Four. 
Richard from Dayton, Ohio, calls and says his 90-gallon aquarium, that's been set-up for about 3-years, has cloudy water. Click here for lots of detailed information about how to get rid of cloudy aquarium water.
Tim sends an email and says thanks for helping him breed his Betta Fish. Now he needs information about how to feed the baby Bettas. Tom recommends that Tim click here to search Pet Fish Talk for our interviews with Ronnie from Missouri about feeding baby Bettas.
Dennis from Spokane, Washington, calls back for the second time today and says he's having lots of baby Guppies but few of them grow to maturity. The Bailey Brothers recommend lots of partial water changes and discuss some other easy techniques.
Nevin mentions that lots of people have big aquariums, and Tom says, "The bigger the aquarium the more the fun!"
