Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
Fish in the News. Each week the Bailey Brothers start the Pet Fish Talk Show with some fun and interesting stories about fish in the news.
Natural Aquarium
In San Francisco, California,
Natural Aquariums Let Fish Live in Style.
That beautiful image you see above isn't a painting or a Photoshop. No, it's an actual fish tank. Created by George and Steven Lo of Aqua Forest Aquarium in San Francisco, these "Nature Aquariums" are built using real plants to create beautiful, natural dioramas for fish to live in. Sure, putting one of these things together take a lot of time, money, and effort, but your fish deserve the best, don't they? And there's nothing fish like more than swimming around in weird, fake versions of places they naturally are unable to go. Hit the jump for another awesome aquarium shot. Click here to read more.
In the Antarctic
Scientists Capture Giant Sea Creatures.
Scientists studying Antarctic waters have filmed and captured giant sea creatures, like sea spiders the size of dinner plates and jelly fish with six metre (18 feet) tentacles. A fleet of three Antarctic marine research ships returned to Australia this week ending a summer expedition to the Southern Ocean where they carried out a census of life in the icy ocean and on its floor, more than 1,000 metres (yards) below the surface. "Gigantism is very common in Antarctic waters -- we have collected huge worms, giant crustaceans and sea spiders the size of dinner plates," Australian scientist Martin Riddle, voyage leader on the research ship Aurora Australis, said on Tuesday. "Many live in the dark and have pretty large eyes. They are strange looking fish," Riddle told local radio. "Some of the video footage we have collected is really stunning -- it's amazing to be able to navigate undersea mountains and valleys and actually see what the animals look like in their undisturbed state," Riddle said. Click here to read more.
Huge Devil Toad Fossil
In Madagascar off Eastern Africa,
Scientists find Huge Devil Toad Fossil.
A frog the size of a bowling ball, with heavy armor and teeth, lived among dinosaurs millions of years ago intimidating enough that scientists who unearthed its fossils dubbed the beast Beelzebufo, or Devil Toad. But its size 10 pounds and 16 inches long isn't the only curiosity. Researchers discovered the creature's bones in Madagascar. Yet it seems to be a close relative of normal-sized frogs who today live half a world away in South America, challenging assumptions about ancient geography. Click here to read more.
Scrubbing Aquarium
In New York
For Two Lucky Guys, it's Summer all Year Long.
Snorkeling in a tropical reef is a vacation activity for the lucky sun-seeker. But for Scott Jones, it's a job, and his reef spans the island of Manhattan, with segments from Columbus Circle to Madison Square Park. Jones holds the title of marine technician with the 10-year-old boutique company City Aquarium. He's one of the lucky New Yorkers who, even in the coldest part of winter, live on an island of equatorial bliss. Any given day, he is up to his elbows - or in over his head - tending to tropical fish, some the pets of the rich and famous. Click here to read more.
Giant Salamander
In China
Giant Salamander can Grow to be 6-Feet Long.
The Chinese giant salamander can grow up to 1.8m in length and evolved independently from all other amphibians over one hundred million years before Tyrannosaurus rex. Click here to read more.
In Hawaii
Limit on Collecting Aquarium Fish Considered.
Right now, aquarium fishing is a free for all. Any diver with a permit can catch as many as they want. Now, for the first time in Hawaii, lawmakers are considering a limit on those catches. No more than 20 ornamental fish per day per collector, with no more than 5 yellow tangs in the mix. "The 20 fish per day per permitted license collector is an amount we felt was reasonable for anyone who wants to maintain a home aquarium or catch sustenance fishing," said Robert Wintner, owner of Snorkel Bobs, a chain of dive shops. Click here to read more.
From Listener Robert in New Jersey
Hi Tom and Nevin, this is a link for fish in the news
Callers during this Show
Bonnie from Iowa calls and talks about her new R/O unit.
Michael from Waco, Texas, calls and talks about his 2.5-gallon aquarium that may have toxic heavy metals in the water that is poisoning his fish, snails, and ghost shrimp. Later after the show Michael sent Tom and Nevin an email ...
Hello again Tom and Nevin, I just had to email you after the show today because I was very excited to be on.  Today was the first day that I actually got a chance to listen to a live show, so that was a good experience.  I found your site two or three weeks ago after I decided to own a Betta because I really enjoyed taking care of my girlfriend's 6.5 gallon freshwater aquarium. 
I have literally been on your site every day since then learning and listening to the archive shows.  In fact when I called I was in the middle of writing a speech for a class using all of the information I learned from your site.  So I was shocked when I got through and you already knew who I was!  I appreciate the information that you gave today, and I plan to follow up and call back like you said. 
Below this I wanted to include information on the supplies and aquarium setup I had; it is not important for you to read, but I thought I would include it in case you guys were interested. 
My 2.5 gallon tank - (2) 7.5 watt heaters that kept at 82F I have started running only one making the water 78F, frozen brine shrimp, freeze dried blood worms, color flakes, and Hikari pellets. 1 peacock fern.I use a gravel vac for changing waterI use an eye dropper and sometimes a baster to feed my Betta. Is it okay to keep my snail my himself? in a separate bowl which has: 
My .5 gallon bowl, 1/4 in. gravel plant bulbs (that have not grown yet)  a lid which has two Lucky bamboo plants growing out of the top whose roots are in the tank water. Can I send pictures? Will you guys be able to see them?
Michael from Waco, Texas
Robert in New Jersey talks about PetsMart and about good fish for new aquarists.
George from Colorado calls and asks Tom about his plans for a new big aquarium, and about what fish Tom would like to keep.
