A Peruvian Pictus Catfish
This young fish was born in Peru, caught by fish collectors, and then shipped to us in San Diego, California. We've never heard of them being bred in aquariums, so they are only available as wild fish. There is a very similar fish in Columbia that's also called a Pictus but may be a different species. This fish eats lots and lots of food and is growing very fast. Pictus Catfish are wonderful aquarium fish.

A Young Mature Male Gold Nugget Molly
He is the ruler of the Mollys in Tom's 29-gallon aquarium, but he doesn't interact much with other fish, and is not a cruel ruler. He like to eat and swim and turn around quickly as shown in this picture. He is obviously a gorgeous fish.

A Young Female Red Wag Platy
Nevin's eyes bulge every time he sees this fish, and then he always says, "That female Platy is huge !!"

A Visiting Marbled Sailfin Plecostomus
This young fish has been visiting Tom's 29-gallon aquarium for a couple of weeks now. It's growing and getting more colorful and relaxing by sucking onto the back of the aquarium and just hanging there. A very good aquarium fish.

A Visiting Rainbow Shark
During this show Tom said something like, "In the top picture this fish had it's bearskin coat on." When he took the picture Tom noticed this fish's body looked like it was shedding or something. Then a few days later it looked more normal, as shown in the lower picture.
Two pictures of
Some Visiting Gold Danios
Tom is prone to repeating himself, and he has said many times that these are one of the very best aquarium fish. They look great, very hardy, very active, don't both other fish very much, and swim too fast to be bothered by most kinds of fish. A highly recommended aquarium fish.

A Visiting Red Crystal Barb
The dazzling neon red in this fish is obvious, and in this picture you can catch a glimpse of the blue above the red, and the orange on the belly and dorsal fin. The black dots in the fins are also very pretty. This is a fabulous fish and highly recommended.
Kathleen from Clovis, California, sent an email. 
Tom and Nevin, as I was listening to your last (6/23/10) show– I really perked up when, while talking about killifish for mosquito control, you mentioned a guy named Haas. Then Tom jumped in and said no, the guys name was Harold Bay.
I don’t know if there is a Harold Bay but there certainly is a Richard Haas, he is a friend of mine. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have met him. He taught biology here at CSU Fresno for years and I think he was in CA even before that. He is one of the founding members of the American Killifish Assoc. and went to Africa to study the feasibility of using Killies for mosquito control. He is mentioned in the article you were referring to.
So did you meet him? Or was it the other guy? I had him for a couple of classes and we invited him to our wedding and have kept in touch since. He had a really cool underwater viewing room surrounded by a pond. You’d climb in a hatch and down a ladder and be surrounded by large panes of glass looking into the pond. He had his ethology (animal behavior) students sit in there watching some 3-spined sticklebacks. We’d hold fish shapes with red spots to release the territorial behavior of the males. He had us watch guppies and a spawning pair of convict cichlids as some of our other Ethology class assignments.
I loved your story of the pond full of mosquitoes.  Any tips on raising daphnia? I’m planning on trying this summer. I grow mosquitoes currently. In 5 gallon buckets, they are easy to net out and if I can’t keep up with the harvesting enough to avoid pupae I pick out the eggs and then just dump it over. So I don’t worry about breeding biters.
I was looking in one of my barrel ponds this afternoon and wondering how it is that it has no mosquito larvae. I didn’t think it could have fish in it since it had white clouds in it last year and there was ice on the top a time or two over the winter. But sure enough on close inspection there were at least a couple of them in there. Did you know they could take that kind of cold?
What was the link for the blog for moms doing in the fish news? I looked it over and it had me stumped.

Reply. Hi Kathleen, thank you for your interesting email. Once in a while Tom gets the urge to talk about something from long ago like the mosquitoes in his pond and Dr. Bay's visit. It's a great surprise and pleasure to find out that someone, you in this case, enjoyed hearing about it. Thanks again!
By the way I searched the internet and found a scientific paper about Killifish by Dr. Ernest C. Bay. Click on the next line to read the first page ...
This must be the Dr. Bay that visited us long ago. Apparently his name was Ernest not Harold! I apologize for getting yet another name mixed up! You can see a picture of Dr. Bay at ...
But that picture does not ring a bell in Tom's old head.
Callers during this Show
Jay from Evansville, Indiana, calls and talks with Tom and Nevin about his aquarium system, which now has abut 40-aquariums from 10 to 75-gallons. The water in the system recirculates through a filter, including a big 30-inch long "sock".
The Bailey Brothers encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk during the show and talk about your pet fish.
