Hi, Tom and Nevin!
Just wanted to let you know that I submitted the following letter to The Discovery Channel/Animal Planet:
My favorite Internet personalities are the fishkeepers, Tom + Nevin Bailey on  They have an Internet radio show and yesterday, they helped me set up my new fish tank.  You should check them out for a possible TV show - what a couple of great personalities!  Freshwater fishkeeping is *extremely* popular with millions of fans, and we need a show about it on Animal Planet.
Tom + Nevin have been in the tropical fish business since they were children, and they have been helping callers to their show for years.  They have great stuff on their website (lectures by scientists, information, pictures...).  Most of all, they are unique and *entertaining.* If Animal Planet does not "discover" :) Tom and Nevin soon, someone else will!
Thanks for great programming!

Tom + Nevin, the short story behind my writing to Animal Planet about you guys is, I am the biggest complainer in my house about "two hundred channels and nothing to watch" on TV. 
So I tried to think of things that I *would* like to watch.  If you guys had a TV show, I would not miss an episode.  Also, there are so many tropical fish keepers all over the world, we NEED a show.
The best shows on the Discovery Channel (in my opinion) feature a couple of guys doing what they are good at:  i.e. Mythbusters + American Chopper.  It's a format that works really well.
Tom + Nevin, if you get a spare 30 secs or so on your radio show, could you put out a request, on my behalf, for any listeners who would not mind going to the Discovery Channel website and submitting a suggestion for a TV show?
The TV industry can be very responsive to viewer feedback, and I'm sure I'm not the only fan who would like to enjoy your show on TV.  As TV consumers, we *can* have a say in what we watch!
Best wishes,
Mary Birch

Tom and Nevin, I have just been listening to you advising Tim about moving his fish. For longer journeys and in cold weather you have suggested using freezer boxes and/or polystyrene boxes to help keep the fish warm during transit. My local fish shop is about 3 miles away from my house and I walk there and back most fridays after work.
When I go there I always make sure to carry a thermal gel pack with me to help keep any fish warm on the walk home. These packs contain a special gel and a metail disk. When the metail disk is pressed the gel begins to harden and the pack will produce heat for about 4 hours.Once exhausted, the packs can be recharged by soaking them in boiling water and then used again on the following trip if needed.

Reply. Thanks Stephen. These gel packs are interesting and useful. I searched for "Hot Gel Handwarmers" and found many links. Interestingly, many in the U.K. Maybe their hands get colder over there.
I found some "Gel Hot Packs" like the ones we use in our fish hatchery for a good price at
