Fish in the News from Robert in New Jersey
Hi Tom & Nevin, I am a little late with FITN as I have been preparing for my new fish arrivals that are due Wednesday morning. I hope to have pictures for you as I get them in to their new homes. First up is not new news but a blog that is keeping up with the progress of HR-669. Readers need to scroll down to see what are representatives are saying and what is actually in the bill. They either did not read the bill (there is a shocker) or they are LYING (there's another shocker). Once you have read this you will see just how bad this is going to be and not just some people yelling the sky is falling. It is more important than ever to keep this in the public eye. Representatives have very short memory's they get a lot of attention at the herrings then as time goes by the forget, then we end up with bad laws. People's pets are in danger of making us criminals over night. Your Friend, Robert In NJ.

Now for the first time I will toot my own horn (am I good or what?), Your Friend, Robert In NJ
Hi Robert, let me get my horn and toot it for you !! Very early Tuesday morning I posted the pictures, shown just below, of Big Blue Bob and a comment that he doesn't get lonely. Within an hour or so, Robert send me the email, shown just above, with a link to an article that discusses, "Do fish get lonely?" Yes !! Robert is amazing, and we are all fortunate to benefit from his many, many contributions to Pet Fish Talk. Thanks again Robert !! Now lets all toot the horn for Robert. Toot !!

Big Blue Bob is Still Growing.
These pictures were taken this week. Big Blue Bob lives alone now in a 30-gallon aquarium. He seems to enjoy his privacy and doesn't seem lonesome. Maybe Tom and Nevin will talk about fish psychology during this week's show, or you could call and talk about anything fishy. Click on each of the pictures, just above, to see bigger pictures with more detail.
Callers during this Show
Robert in New Jersey calls and talks about the shipment of live fish he got this morning from, about angel Fish, rummy Nose Tetras, discus Fish, aquarium water, nitrate, and lots more. Shown below are some pictures that Robert took of the shipment of fish that he received.
Here is the box that was delivered to Robert's home in New Jersey.
"Hey, these fish are all the way from California, and they're alive."
The water is slightly tinted with blue from a very mild antiseptic that limits the growth of pathogens in the shipping water.
A container of the premium Xtreme Flake food for tropical fish.
One of the nice Black Angels that Robert ordered. Black Angels are tender, so they are single bagged. One Angel Fish per bag then a second bag for the rare cases that the first bag leaks.
The same Black Angel getting to know its new aquarium.
Another Black Angel in the bag. Fins up and looking good.
Now there are two Black Angels, and both look good after about 14 hours in the bag.
Three more bags with three more Angels. Each looking good.
Mixing with their new tank mates, some very nice Discus.
Three Black angels taking a close look at the big sponge filter.
A bag full of nice big Rummy Nose Tetras. Notice the corners on the bags are sealed off, so the fish cannot get trapped in a long pointed corner.
The Rummy Nose Tetras forming a school and showing off their red "noses", which they do when the water is right and they feel good.
Rummy Noses Tetras shown forming forming a close school and keeping a close eye on those much bigger Discus Fish.
After posting these pictures and captions, we sent an email to Robert, asking him if he had any comments to add? He very quickly sent back an email, which is shown just below.

Robert's Email

Hi Tom,
Thank you for posting the pictures there is only 2 things I would like to add that I did not get to say on the show.
1. that my tanks other than my 150 and my 90 are all bare bottom even though they look like there is sand in them. I used Jay's bottom painting method I have some pictures of that and I will send them when I find them.
2. The reason the real reason the angels and discus are in the same tank is I had a pair of angels in a 37 to keep the tank cycled, but as the saying goes the best laid plans of mice and men are bound to go a rye. They decided to spawn so the next best option was the 29 with the juvenile discus which will work till they acclimate. Being black angels I will wait a month or two to move them ...
