Stuart Grant, African Cichlid exporter.
In Malawi, East Africa,
African Cichlid Exporter, Stuart Grant, Died.
Stuart Grant, the greatest exporter of African Cichlids from Lake Malawi in East Africa, shown above on the right with Heiko Bleher on the left, died on October 11, 2007. Long ago The Bailey Brothers imported fish from Mr. Grant. Click here to read more.
One of the divers, who worked for Stuart Grant, is shown below using a large net to capture African Cichlids in Lake Malawi. Also below is one of the African Cichlids, a Malawi Red Peacock, that Tom and Nevin imported long ago from Stuart Grant.

Vancouver, B.C., Canada,
Baby Beluga Whale Born in Vancouver Aquarium.

Qila, shown above, gave birth to her first calf at 4:28 PM Tuesday, June 10, 2008. Watch a video of the birth on our YouTube Channel. This newborn beluga is:

  • Slate grey – she will gradually lighten as she matures.
  • Wrinkled for the first few weeks
  • Adorable
  • Making history – she’s the first calf in Canada to be born to an aquarium-born beluga.

Qila, a first-time mom, was born at the Aquarium on July 23, 1995. Like any brand new mammal mom she is still learning how to care for her baby. Click here to read more. Special thanks to Robert in New Jersey for emailing us the link to this story.

Whale Shark in an Aquarium.
At the Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan,
The Fish Tank that is so Big !!
This is one of the world's biggest fish tanks  -  so big that it's even been named the Kuroshio Sea. The enormous tank is some ten meters deep, 35 meters wide and 27 meters long. It holds a staggering 7,500 tons of water  -  roughly equal to three Olympic-sized swimming pools. Eighty species live in the Kuroshio Sea tank, including yellow-fin tuna, bonito (a type of large mackerel) and manta rays. But the daddy of them all is the world's biggest fish, the whale shark, shown above, which can grow to be 12 meters long and needs a quarter of a ton of food every week. Only three aquariums in the world have tanks large enough to house these giant creatures. Click here to read more. Special thanks to Robert in New Jersey for emailing us the link to this story.
Pet Fish Surgeon.
In Irvine, California,
"Dr. Bob" Hildreth, Fish Surgeon.
Medical history is about to be made. "You might want to step back," says the surgeon, shown above, wearing shorts and sneakers. "There's going to be some splashing!" With that, he lifts a 25-inch fish named "George W" out of a tub of anesthetizing water and carries him into the X-ray room. Fish owner Don Chandler, a retired policeman, assists while his wife, Brenda, looks on in obvious emotional pain. "I was afraid we lost him three weeks ago," she says of the first attempt to remove an abscess from George W's swim bladder. "I'd never seen him bleed like that. I had to leave the room." The problem here is trying to get George W to stand up straight in front of a fluoroscope, which produces live X-rays – necessary, to work on the abscess. Click here to read more.

Pipe Fish
At the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco, California,
Male Bay Pipefish are the Ultimate Fathers.
They won't be opening any presents today - no neckties or cologne for them - but bay pipefish are exemplary father figures whose paternal duties go way beyond what most dads manage to accomplish. These tiny aquatic creatures carry the fertilized eggs of their future offspring, and deliver them as well. "Wouldn't it be a perfect world if all males would give birth?" asked Melissa Chaney, an aquatic biologist at San Francisco's Aquarium of the Bay. She takes care of the aquarium's collection of 150 or so bay pipefish, shown above, and will be giving two talks today about their unusual fatherly features, which could be suited to Mother's Day as well. In a few months, the aquarium will start an unprecedented study of their pipefish, which are about 8 months old and will be big enough to serve as research subjects when they've reached the 1-year mark." We want to get a really good idea of how they live," Chaney said. Click here to read more.
In Virginia Beach, Virginia,
Spotted Eagle Rays are New to Aquarium.
For the entire 18-hour drive from the Florida Keys, someone had to ride in the back of the tractor-trailer with the spotted eagle rays. The rays rode in 2,000-gallon, climate-controlled tanks, three to a tank, and presumably they circled endlessly and gracefully all the way, just as they were doing when the truck pulled into the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center's animal care center at 5 a.m. Friday. The humans were maybe not as comfortable, but they were on time, to the minute, to deliver six rays, which together will become the centerpiece of the new Red Sea Tunnel walk-through aquarium when it opens next year. Click here to read more. Special Thanks to Jourdan from Connecticut for emailing us the link to this story.
Whale Shark.
In Ningaloo, Western Australia,
Secret Life of the World's Biggest Fish Revealed.
The strange bounding underwater "flight" of the mightiest fish in the oceans has been revealed for the first time through a remarkable scientific collaboration. This secret life of the whale shark, the world's biggest fish, was recently disclosed in a scientific world-first by two Laureates of the Rolex Awards for Enterprise, Brad Norman, of Australia's Murdoch University, and Professor Rory Wilson, of Swansea University, in the United Kingdom. In the Indian Ocean, off Ningaloo, on Australia's western coast, the team have equipped several whale sharks with a unique electronic device known as a "daily diary" that records in minute detail (eight times a second) the giant creatures' every action — speed, depth, pitch, roll and heading, as well as every beat of the fish's tail. "For the first time we have an insight into what it is that these magnificent creatures get up to when they are out of sight of humans — and it isn't what we expected." said Norman, who received a Rolex Award in 2006 for his project employing "citizen scientists" worldwide to help study and protect whale sharks through an online global photo ID library, housed on the website Click here to read more.
