Fish in the News from Robert in New Jersey
Hi Tom & Nevin, The first story this week tells the tale that is worse than HR-669 individual states are starting to enact some really bad legislation they are giving the power  to one person to determine what fish or reptiles are illegal. You could wake up one morning and your tank of 50 guppies could cost you in fines $50,000.00 yes a $1,000 a fish. The pet hobby is under siege if the federal government wasn't bad enough now individual states are now making it worse.

Young OB Mbunas Scraping Algae.
These are three of the very nice OB Mbunas that have grown up in Tom's 29-gallon aquarium in the last 12 to 15 weeks. Everyone of them is different and very nicely colored and very energetic. When they have not been fed for a few hours, they begin to eat the thick algae that grows on the Cichlid Stones. Click here for more about Cichlid Stones.  
Another OB Mbuna Scraping Algae.
This picture was taken without the flash on the camera, using just the lights in the aquarium. This may be more like what a potential predator might see when swimming over a pile of rocks in Lake Malawi and looking for an Mbuna to eat. The color and pattern of this Mbuna matches the algae so closely that it would be difficult for a predator to see it. Or perhaps more importantly, it would be more difficult to see this Mbuna than many other Mbunas, which would probably be seen and eaten first.
A young male OB Mbuna swimming near a rock  in an aquarium.
The Biggest of the Young OB Mbunas
This fish looks like a young male and is now about 2.25" long. Most of these young Mbunas will soon have to leave the 29-gallon aquarium that they have grown up in and go to's facilities. Tom thinks he may keep a few of them, and he will surely miss the others. When you breed fish, you soon learn that you cannot keep them all.
Another of the OB Mbunas
The young OB Mbuna, shown above, like the others has grown up among a pile of 15 Cichlid Stones in a 29-gallon aquarium. This fish shows more blue coloration than the others. This fish, like all of Tom's fish, is Tom's favorite fish.  
A young so-called Red Zebra
The fish, shown just above, was raised with the OB Mbunas. Actually it came out of the same female's mouth at the same time the OB Mbunas came out. Tom speculated that the female may have seen an egg and picked it up, even tough it was not her egg. Then mouth brooded that egg with her OB babies. We will really never know just what happened. It's a mystery like many things that happen in aquariums, that make aquariums all the more interesting.

Big Blue Bob Rules the 29-gallon Aquarium.
Big Bob, shown above, chases the OB Mbunas and tries to get them leave his territory, which is the entire 29-gallon aquarium. When he swoops down on them, they dive between the Cichlid Stones. After he passes, they quickly go back to where they were. Bob does no harm, but he probably would if he could, and he has said many times that he will be glad to see the OB Mbunas go.
Sterba's Corydoras Catfish in a freshwater aquarium.
Sterbai Cory Catfish
These wonderful dwarf armored catfish live in the same aquarium with the Serpae Tetras, shown above. There are lots of different species of Cory catfish in the genus Corydoras. They are all wonderful fish for most freshwater aquariums, because they are small, cute, energetic, and constantly work to eat small bits of uneaten food lost among the pieces of gravel.

What do you see in her mouth?
The fish, shown above, is a female so-called Red Zebra. As he looked at the pictures her last week, Nevin declared that he could see baby fish in this female's mouth. These are new pictures of the same female. What do you see in her mouth?
Serpae Tetra - a young mature male with nice coloration.
Serpae Tetra
Shown above is one of 12 Serpaes in the Angelfish Aquarium. These beautiful fish continue to grow, to increase in coloration, to vigorously quarrel with each other, and to spawn.
Clown Loaches - a group of five that are swarming on top of each other.
Clown Loaches
These Clown Loaches arrived a couple of weeks ago. They were just a bit thin, which is not unexpected, because they are wild fish, and wild fish often arrive thin. They'd been well acclimated but need lots of good food, which they've gotten. The Clown Loach on the far left was still a little thin, when this picture was taken, but now a few days later is much plumper, like the one shown below. These fish are very easy to love!!
Clown Loach - a nice plump young one!
