Quite unfortunately, on May 2nd, Xylon, my African leaf fish (Polycentropsis abbreviata) passed away. I have more info about that on my blog, and also a photo album (with good photos!), enjoy.
A pair of Freshwater Angelfish cleaning a filter siphon tube before spawning.
Angelfish getting ready to Spawn again.
These two Angelfish spawned a few weeks ago, and they are getting ready to spawn again. In this picture they're "cleaning a spot" on the siphon tube that drains water into the the filter. The fish on the left is the male Leopard Veiltail Angel, and the fish on the right is a female Gold Veiltail Angel. These Angelfish are two color varieties of the same species. Tom and Nevin will talk about these Angels in the next Pet Fish Talk Show. You are invited to call during the show and talk about Pet Fish.
Female Bushymouth Plecostomus - Ancistrus species from Columbia.
New Plecos. in the Angelfish Aquarium
Just above is a female Bushymouth Plecostomus. She has just a few very short tentacles around her mouth. Last Wednesday Nevin brought three new Bushymouths to join the one male Bushymouth in the Angelfish Aquarium.
Corydoras sterbai, Cory Catfish, Armoured Catfish
New Sterbai Corydoras Catfish
Nevin also brought ten Corydoras sterbai, Armored Catfish, and put them in the Angelfish Aquarium. You can see this fish has some orange coloration in its paired pectoral and pelvic fins. Like the Bushymouths the Sterbai are wild fish from South America.
A young 5" long mature male Labeotropheus trewavasae named Tre.
Tré, shown above, more Colorful than ever
As mentioned several times, he's a mature male Labeotropheus trewavasae. His ancestors lived in Lake Malawi in East Africa. He was born on a fish farm in Florida. On Saturday I noticed that he was more colorful than ever. Then I saw why. One of his daughters had a mouthful of eggs.

Tré's Daughter with a Mouthful of Fresh Eggs
The picture just above shows Tré's daughter with a mouthful of fresh eggs. She is about 2.5" long and about 8-months old. She was born in this aquarium. Tré is now more than 5" long. Apparently Tré and this female had spawned just before I saw them.
Callers during this Show
Jackie in Labrador, Canada, calls and talks about her pet fish. She has Angel Fish, a Black Ghost Knifefish, Corydoras Catfish, Pencil Fish, Glass Catfish, and probably more. She has spawned the Angels and raised 30 to 50 babies in her 55-gallon aquarium. She has also spawned Cory Catfish. She has quite a few aquariums. We hope she will call again soon and tell us all more about her pet fish.
Robert in New Jersey calls and talks about feeding Xtreme Cichlid Diet to the fish in his basement. For now the fish in his living room are going without! Robert also talks about using Rummy Nose Tetras to indicate aquarium water quality. Then Robert and Tom have a long conversation about the nitrogen cycle in aquariums: fish food to ammonia to nitrite to nitrate then denitrification to produce nitrogen and oxygen.
The Bailey Brothers encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk during the show and talk about your pet fish.
