We also talked with Chris about painting the bottom and the back of aquariums. We also discuss covering the bottom of the aquariums to make the fish feel more comfortable. Chris and Nevin talk about using water resistant wallpaper as a background for aquariums.
 
Compatible Fish.
Vern sends us another email, and says he's restocked his 39-gallon aquarium with an Oscar, Silver Arowana, Blood Parrot Cichlid, Electric Blue Hap., and a Bumblebee Mbuna. Now he wonders if he can keep these fish in his 100-gallon aquarium.

Filters for a 150-gallon Aquarium. Jim says he bought a used 150-gallon aquarium at a garage sale and wants some tips about how to set it up. Tom recommends either no gravel or a thin layer of gravel no more than 1/4 inch thick. Nevin recommends two Emperor 400 Filters or two Penguin 350 Filters with siphon tube extensions. This aquarium will weigh up to a ton, after it's filled, and needs a professionally made stand on a floor that can support it!
 
A Big Sincere Thank-you to Kenny, Rocky, Chris, Bonnie, Evan, and Josh for calling the show. Tom and Nevin encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk during the show and talk about your pet fish.
