Angel Fish Spawning in an Aquarium.
The Angel Fish Spawning again this Week.
Leopold the large male Leopard Veiltail Angelfish is on the left in the picture just above. Marilyn, his mate, is on the right, and you can see her breeding tube on the lower part of her abdomen. She has just laid some eggs on the filter tube, and Leopold is now fertilizing the eggs. But some of the eggs did not adhere and are loose in the water above Marilyn. Tom and Nevin will talk about this during this week's show.
Labeotropheus trewavasae - An MbunaAfrican Cichlid species from lake Malawi in East Africa
This Week's Picture of Tré, shown above.
Tré is very energetic and brightly colored. Constantly protecting his pile of about six Cichlid Stones. He still seems to be growing and is now about the biggest Labeotropheus trewavasae ever.

Two new pictures of a Fish Named Bob.
Yes, his name is now officially Bob. His coloration is not as shinny and metallic as it was, before he was in a big fight and lost, but he has completely recovered and looks good. He seems more deeply colored with the rich blue and dark orange. He is very curious and closely looks at everything in or near his aquarium. In this aquarium, if you look very closely, you can see some of the young OB Zebras that share this aquarium with Bob.
A young OB Mbuna.
One of the Young OB Mbunas living with Bob.
Shown just above is one of the young OB Mbunas that lives in the same 29-gallon aquarium with Bob. This young OB Mbuna was released from its mother's mouth about 3-months old and has grown very fast. It's now about 2" long and shows lots of interesting coloration for such a young fish.
Serpae Tetra
The Serpae Tetras looking better and better.
This Serpae came right up to the front of the aquarium and sort of danced back and forth. You can see the red coloration is richer this week, and the the black and white markings are more intense. All the Serpaes are doing really well, eating a lot, and growing.
Corydoras sterbai - Catfish species from South America.
The Sterbai Cory Catfish are very nice.
The Sterbai Corys are very comical and very interesting, and their pattern seems even more interesting than most other Cory Catfish species. They are now tank raised in large numbers, available at, and really a very nice fish for most aquariums. The are doing very well in a 55-gallon aquarium with Serpae Tetras, large Angel Fish, and Bushymouth Plecostomus. The fish together are a wonderful combination. Highly recommended.

Hi Tom and Nevin,
I was intrigued by the mysterious fish births described in the last segment of your show this week. I can imagine two scenarios which would account for this mystery:
1. A very small, cryptic male who has remained unobserved.  This
     scenario depends on the tank being so piled with rocks and
      decorations that it's impossible to tell what's in it.
2. A more unusual possibility is a hermaphroditic fish.  This seems
      unlikely, but a quick search turned up this article, which
      describes Geophagus with male and female organs.  These
      particular fish were not fertile, but who knows what possible
      in the great biological laboratory of nature.
As always, enjoyed the show greatly. And I personally love hearing about Tom's adventures with his tanks!

Reply. Hello Drew and thank you for your email comments. This is still a complete mystery to us. We appreciate your suggestions, which are possibilities.
Callers during this Show
Bonnie from Iowa calls and says she dug a new pond in her backyard with about 150-gallons of water. Tom and Nevin talk about this pond and about advice for  listeners who may be thinking about putting a fish pond in their backyards. Bonnie says, "Do it."
Bennett from Michigan calls and says his Firemouth Cichlids spawned and the eggs hatched. Tom and Nevin ask Bennett for all the details, including the aquarium size, water temperature, types of food he fed to the breeders, and just about every question that  they can think of. Bennett gives lots of valuable details about spawning Firemouths.
The Bailey Brothers encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk
during the show and talk about your pet fish.
