Segment One. 
Fish in the News: The show starts with Nevin summarizing an article from the Edmonton Sun, which is titled, "Feng Shui Brings Sense of Flow". Click here to read the entire article.
Danny from Huntsville, Ontario, Canada, calls and says he's having trouble hearing today's show on the internet. Then Danny says the advice we gave him a few weeks ago is working and his fish are doing much better. He has Convict Cichlids that are breeding in his aquarium.
George from St. Croix, Wisconsin, calls and reports that his Pangasius Catfish has what looks like a boil on its side. Tom and Nevin give George some advice about how to treat his Pangasius.
Segment Two. 
Russell calls us from Aberdeen, Washington, calls and says one of his female guppies has a big curved hump in her back. We talk about why her back is curved and what to do about it, including improving the diet of his guppies with flake food, frozen brine shrimp, Freeze Dried Blood Worms, and a few Live Black Worms.

Dan from Dallas calls and says he sent us an email saying he couldn't logon to the show, but today it's working again. We talk about the bog plants in Dan's 17000-gallon pond.
Segment Three. 
We continue to talk with Dan from Dallas about the huge Plecostomus Catfish living in his pond.
Tom encourages people with cloudy water in their pond to add some bog plants to their pond to help clear the water. Nevin agrees and says it might be good to plant the bog plants in big terra cotta pots.
Tom reminisces for a minute or two about Larry Wright and Wright's Fish Farm in Florida.
Tina's says her friend has a brackish water aquarium with a Puffer, two White Tip Sharks, and a Plecostomus in a 10-gallon aquarium, and she wants to know if these fish are compatible?
Rupesh has a 50-gallon aquarium with a Black Moor and some Sarasa Comets. Will these fish eat small Ghost Shrimp?
Mellish from England planted some aquatic plants in terra cotta pots and the plants have done very well. Just below you can see a picture that Mellish sent to us that shows plants growing in a terra cotta plant in his aquarium. Thanks for the report and the picture, Mellish.
Live Aquarium Plants in a terra cotta pot.
Tom and Nevin talk about growing aquatic plants in terra cotta pots, which seem to work well in many aquariums.
Segment Four. 
Josh from Ohio calls and says he likes Hagan's plastic rocks that have a cavity for live plants better than terra cotta pots for his aquarium. Josh talks about his new planted aquarium with fluorite gravel. Josh is also adding fertilizer with iron and injecting carbon-dioxide into his planted aquarium.
Josh has a pair of Smokey Chocolate Angels and a pair of Wild German Blue Rams that have recently spawned once. Josh makes some interesting comments about his pairs of Rams.
Stewart from Willamette, Illinois says he is setting up a new 55-gallon long aquarium and asks if his HOT aquarium filters will be OK for a saltwater aquarium? Tom points out that filtering equipment for saltwater aquarium is quite different from filtering equipment for freshwater aquariums and explains why.
Josh from Ohio sends an email with pictures of the Hagan brand Marina Planting Rock, shown in the picture just below.
Planting Rock.   Marina Planting Rock - Large.
