Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
A young mature male Cichlid from Lake Victoria in East Africa.
Male Dwarf Cichlid Guarding his Cichlid Stone.
The fish in the picture, shown just above, is a young male, whose ancestors came from Lake Victoria in East Africa. He may be a Pundamilia nyererei. He lives in Tom's 55-gallon Mbuna Aquarium made by SeaClear. This fish constantly guards the Cichlid Stone, which is also shown in the picture. Cichlid Stones are ornamental caves that come in a variety of sizes and look like stones. Cichlid Stones will be available soon in many stores that sell pet fish. Tom and Nevin recommend this fish, SeaClear Aquariums, and Cichlid Stones !! They also invite you to call during the show and talk about this fish, about SeaClear Aquariums, about Cichlid Stones, and anything else about pet fish. You can click here to buy a SeaClear Aquarium now.
Hey guys, I hope this comes through. I know Dolphins are not fish, but this video is amazing! Brad in Michigan.
Thank you Brad. This video is amazing. We had never heard of this or seen anything like it. This shows that Dolphins are very smart and know how to have lot of fun. Thanks again !!
A young mature male OB Red Zebra. Pseudotropheus Maylandia esterae
The fish, shown above, lives in Tom's Mbuna Aquarium, which contains about 20-adult Mbunas and a few babies that hide among the Cichlid Stones. Last week this fish had gained equal status with the dominant male Mbuna. This week this fish is dominant, and he has changed color from orange and purple with a blue sheen, to much more of a metallic bright blue. In the past few months there has been a succession of four dominant male Mbunas. But none of them has really been able to completely dominate the smaller Cichlid, shown at the top of this page.
A young male Labeotropheus trewavasae, which is a species of Mbuna Cichlid.
This is Tom's young male Trewavasae, which is growing very fast and concentrating on eating. He's slim and a very fast swimmer, but backs down from the male shown farther up on this page. In this picture you can see that the shape of his mouth is quite different from most other Mbuna Cichlids.
This is another young male Mbuna living in Tom's Mbuna Aquarium. This fish has been dark grey-blue until recently. Now he is beginning to color-up and compete energetically with other males in the aquarium.
Baby Mbunas with yoke sacs
On Sunday night Tom very gently opened the mouth of the large female Socolofi and removed these babies and many more. She had spawned about 10-days ago. These babies still have big yoke sacks, which they will completely absorbed in the 10-days or so. They are actually about 1/4-inch long and are shown here greatly magnified. They are resting against each other, which might make them look like they are attached to each other, but they aren't. Their mother is shown in the picture below a day after her babies were removed. She was eating a lot of food and very energetic.

Eggs from the mouth of a Female Red Zebra - an African Cichlid species from Lake Malawi
The picture just above shows show eggs that Tom very carefully removed from the mouth of the female Red Zebra that's shown below on this page. These eggs actually measure about 3/16-inch long, which is about 5 mm. After Tom photographed these eggs, he left for a few minutes, and when he came back the female had picked them back up !! Tom then gently put her back in the aquarium.

On Sunday night Tom also carefully removed the fry, shown above, from the mouth of one of his Red Zebra females. There were a total of 21 fry, and 14 of them are shown in this photo. These fry are a little bit longer than 1/4-inch, maybe 5/16-inch, which would be about 8 mm. The female, was gently returned to Tom's Mbuna Aquarium, and the next day she was doing very well. You can see a picture of her just below brooding the eggs in the bulging sack, which is called a buccal sack that's just below and behind her mouth.

Pundimilia nyererei from Lake Victoria, guading a cave.
It's now Tuesday afternoon, the day before this week's show, and this fish has picked a new favorite Cichlid Stone. A couple of days ago he liked the Cichlid Stone, shown in the picture at the top of this page, but today he is just as fiercely defending a different Cichlid Stone.

Same fish on Tuesday evening, and he's showing off for everybody.
Fish in the News from Robert in New Jersey.
Hi Tom & Nevin, Here are this week's fish in the news and a question. I had a 5" discus that developed 2 white spots that lined up perfectly vertically one above the vertical line one below just past the gills. I originally thought it just a couple of nips as there was a lot of spawning going on 2 pairs of discus and 1 angel pair by 6:00am the next day less than 12hrs from when I noticed the marks the fish was dead with ring marks surrounding the originally 2 marks like an oval dart board (yes I know it's hard to diagnose the cause of death but I thought with these unique markings it would be easier) any thoughts and whether I need to be concerned about the rest of the fish in the tank? Your Friend, Robert in NJ.
