Mbunas with Cichlid Stones
In the video, shown above, you can see several Mbuna Cichlids swimming among the pile of Cichlid Stones in Tom's new 55-gallon aquarium. Mbunas naturally occur in Lake Malawi in Eastern Africa. Cichlid Stones are a new product that will soon be available in many retail pet stores. If these Mbunas and Cichlid Stones interest you, call and talk about them during the show.

Heiko Bleher comments about his Arrest in Brazil.
Hi Tom and Nevin, Here is a post by Heiko Bleher himself about his arrest in Brazil I thought you would like to know about it. Your Friend, Robert In NJ
Hi all of you,
this is Heiko Bleher and I am reading your lengthy thread and would like to make some comments, after 3 fantastic expeditions and 3 and one have day in probably what must be one of the worst and inhuman prisons on earth...
First of all I like to correct some of the worst wrong information on the world-wide web and on this great site:
1. I (and Natasha) embarked in Manaus, not Belem.
2. It was the Federal Police who stopped us and unloaded our baggage and searched it, the IBAMA was only informed much later and had originally nothing to do with it.
3. The declaration that they were chasing me for over a year is a lie (probably was made up to make it look better for them, so the Delegada gets another medal and a rise = we are shortly before the October elections... and she did not let me telephone, not call an attorney, embassy or anyone, not even family, just through us in prison with the worst criminals at midnight 29th to 30th of August, without cloth, hygiene, nothing, this is the Federal Police of Brazil...).
I was several times in Brazil during this last year on expedition (some can be seen on my website:, everyone knew it. I never did hide or deny my expeditions.
4. I did NOT break the "Lei Ambiental", it does NOR prohibit to take preserved (dead) fishes. And I have a fishing license (*still good to October). So you all should NOT take fast conclusions or condemn, without knowing the facts, or just the (very often) falso and blown-up news.
The conserved fishes were strictly for for identification (and that they claim that there are new species i a joke, as they have not even examined them yet...).
With the president of IBAMA I flew to Barcelos, we had dinner together and much more, he has my book on Amazonia, knows me very well etc.,etc.).
That there is genetic material and that from it a lot of money is another (biggest) joke. From dead small fishes? You all tell me how...
And now the dead fishes are at INPA to be classified...
We will be here in Manaus till this weekend until it is settled and I get my materials (cameras, laptop, cell-phones, etc) back. There is no hearing by the judge (if it ever will be, probably take 5 to 15 years, as usual). Maybe in the future I have to be at the judges disposal at some time, but that is no problem for me as I come so often to South America and Amazonia (even more than New Guinea and Fareast) and can arrange it accordingly. If I do 2, 3 or 10 expeditions, that is no hinder, almost better.
So my work will continue as usual and I will record as much of our global aquatic environment as long as I can and I am sure until my last day, and always (hopefully) not before it is to late in each place - that is why I go so far were no one goes, but never in restricted, protected or prohibited areas. No one can stop my work, as I do NOT do anything illegal. Only there are some people which want to place me in such a category, of smuggling, bio-piracy, etc. Probably because they are jealous, do not like me or are unable to do the same what I do, therefore want to harm me just to satisfy their eager. And, as mentioned, there are some who need to get a rise, a medal also because they wait to be elected and are unable to get the real criminals...
All the very best and thanks to those who have supported my work (which never made me rich, and what I have I spend in research expeditions, scientific publications I sponsor for almost 20 years now, and in messages to fish and nature lovers around the world).

Robert in NJ asks for Your Input.  
Hi Tom and Nevin, I hope the week off has reenergized you to do the best pet fish talk show yet. Hopefully not everything you did in Vegas did not stay in Vegas ;)  I hope we will hear about some new products. I would Like to request some help from you and the listeners. I am starting a project to setup reviews and eventually to test products from filters to the chemicals in the hobby. I would like some input on the things they would like to know about any type of  product. I would also like to get some input on some scientific methods that could be used in testing filters and chemicals. If they could email their suggestions to Thank You your friend, Robert in NJ

A tip to fishkeepers from Jourdan: Be responsible with your fish! I have heard quite a few stories of people releasing fish into lakes and rivers, my best advice: DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING FISH! By knowing how large a fish will grow (like a Siamese Tiger Fish) you will not have to worry about getting it a large tank in later months, or even releasing it, because releasing a fish that is not native can cause untold ecological damage, like snakeheads, for example. They were released and started eating local fish, and have damaged the North American watershed. So remember, "If you love the environment, don't let them go!" - Jourdan Cameron
Special thanks, as usual, to Jourdan in Connecticut for emailing us these links and for his important comment.
