The Mbuna Babies are about 3-Weeks Old.
This video shows some of the baby Mbunas born in Tom's 55-gallon Mbuna Aquarium. There were 31-babies from a female Socolofi's mouth. Tom put them in a 29-gallon aquarium. When first seen they were about 5/16ths of an inch long, which is about 8 millimeters. About 3-weeks later, as shown in the video above, they are about 15/16ths of an inch long, which is about 24 millimeters. So they have approximately tripled in length in 3-weeks. This means their mass or weight is probably about 27-times bigger!! These numbers are fun to think about, but it's much more fun to watch them. Everyday they learn to do something new. Tom and Nevin talk about them at the beginning of this show. You are invited to call during the show and talk about these fish or any fishy topic that interests you.
Mature male OB Red Zebra, an African Cichlid species from Lake Malawi
The fish, shown above, is a so-called "OB Morph", which is an abbreviation for "Orange Blotch". It's a dominant mature male about 5" long and lives in Tom's Mbuna Aquarium. It's probably a so-called Red Zebra, which has the scientific name Pseudotropheus Maylandia estherae. But there are OB patterns in other Mbuna species. So this may not be a Zebra. Whatever it is, it is a dazzling beauty with a tremendous metallic sheen.
Mature male Red Zebra about 4.5" long.
Mature male Red Zebra about 4.5" long.
The fish, shown in two pictures just above, also live in Tom Mbuna Aquarium, and both are also mature male Red Zebras. Tom will talk about them during the show.
Fish in the News from Robert in New Jersey
Hi Tom & Nevin, Here are this week's Fish in the news. I wanted to let you know that the barrel-eyes were not what looks like the eyes on the grey part of the head those are its nostrils the eyes are the strange green objects in the transparent part of its head. Your Friend, Robert in NJ

Fish Store gets Human Cadaver instead of Fish.

Hey guys, this story might be a bit to macabre, but thought it was interesting. Jay from PA
Callers during this Show
Ronnie from Missouri calls and says that he plans to start breeding Plakat Betta Fish again, that heordered some Killifish eggs, and he  plans to turn his garage into a nice fishroom with a ventless wall heater.
After Ronnie's call Tom and Nevin express some concern about ventless wall heaters and wondered if they were really safe.
The next day Ronnie sent an email saying, "Hey guys i do heating and cooling for a living, u can get a Warmglow ventless wall heater that will work. u need to know the footage of the space and get a heater to fit it, and u can bring fresh air in to cover the needs of the heater ... Ronnie from Missouri"
Rod from Elk Grove, California, calls and talks about getting the best compatible mixture of Mbunas for his 400-gallon aquarium. Tom and Nevin say they don't have any experience with this size Mbuna aquarium, but they have seen a 1000-gallon Mbuna aquarium that is very successful with all kinds of Mbunas. So any assortment of about 50 to 80 Mbunas should work.
The Bailey Brothers encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk
during the show and talk about your pet fish.
Video of Glowlight Tetras Spawning.

Hello Tom and Nevin, Well again I am astounding myself. My Glowlight Tetra's spawned yesterday. I managed to get a pretty terrible quality video of it, and I have put it up on Vimeo. The link is At around 9 seconds you can just make out the actual spawn. Sorry my friend the wedding photographer wasn't around and it all happened in about 20 minutes. Hopefully they will do it again someday and I can get some better photos and video. Next stop Neons, and hopefully some day the Cardinals. -- Nathan
