Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
 
Segment One
Fish in the News.
"While others may make up fishing stories about the one that got away, Sam Myska of Sugar Land, Texas, is glad the one he accidentally hook ... did just that." Tyler Myska sent us this story about his dad's cousin, David, and his uncle, Sam. Click here and here to read the entire story.

More Fishy News
Seahorses Going to Town. Eight of the threatened creatures seized at LAX and not expected to live are instead thriving and reproducing at a center in Redondo Beach, California. "They came in in fairly bad condition," said Brent Scheiwe, the facility coordinator who oversees the care of numerous rescued fish and invertebrates in SEA Lab's building by the ocean. "They were really sKenny." Seahorses have no stomachs, so they have to graze often.

"We didn't think they were going to live," said Stefanie Miller, public programs coordinator at SEA Lab. "They had a long ride in a small bag."

That was about two months ago. After a few weeks basking in a tropical 80-degree saltwater tank, munching on a steady diet of mysid shrimp and krill, the seahorses not only thrived, they got busy.

Three seahorses became pregnant in short order. And as always with the species, the male carried the female's eggs in his pouch for a gestation period of two to three weeks before going through contractions and expelling them. Click here to read the entire story.

Feeding Baby Betta Fish
Ronnie from Missouri sends us an email, "Hello guys i was listening to ur show when steve was talking about feeding fry, he said bettas can eat bbshrimp, newly free swimming bettas cant eat bbshrimp till they get at lease a week old. just wanted to add to the imfo keep the good work up. thanks Ronnie"
 
Rebekah's Platies
Rebekah from West Virginia calls and talks with Tom and Nevin about her new Platies that live in the big aquarium with Cory Catfish and Neon Tetras. Rebekah also talked about her pond and the cold weather.
 
 
Segment Two
Capacity of an Aquarium
Dan from Dallas calls and talks about the capacity of aquariums. He starts by quoting the rule-of-thumb "One Inch of Fish per Gallon of Water." and why that rule does not always work. Dan says that the temperature also affects the capacity of the aquarium. Also active fish like a Zebra Danio need more space. Tom and Nevin agree with Dan that doing regular partial water changes is very good for fish.
 

Tank Mates for Angelfish
"Thank you for answering my Angelfish question during last weeks show. From what you said I think he was just trying to intimidate his tank mates. I know have another question. For Christmas I will be getting a 55g aquarium. I want to stock it with fish from South America mostly. I was thinking about getting 5 or 6 angelfish. Would this be too many fish for the tank, and if not what are some other South American fish that would go with the angels? Thanks, Tyler from Houston."
 
BIO-Wheel Questions
"Thanks for your response to my question on the show. I have a couple of additional comments. I understand if I'm home to keep the wheel wet, some have said to float it in the tank, but if I'm not home I will be in trouble. You also mentioned the wheel is in a quarter inch of water when the power is off. On the Penguin 200 I have it is not. If the pump stops it is suspended far above any water and will quickly dry out. I originally thought also it was in a pool of water and maybe some are and I may look for a different one but the penguin doesn't. You mentioned it would stay moist for 24 hrs. Was that assuming it was in a quarter inch of water when the pump stops? You mentioned the bacteria go in to some kind of "state" and will come back. Will they come back after being dry? I agree with the concept of removing the UGF but am still reluctant about the wheel drying out and or the bacteria dieing. Sorry to be such a pest but I have expensive fish and want to be as sure as possible I have all my bases covered. Thanks for your response and I hope to here some additional comments about my questions. Thanks Wayne"
 
 
Segment Three
Aquarium Filters
Tom and Nevin talk about the various types of aquarium filters, including their huge trickledown filter, fluidized bed filters, sponge filters, and undergravel filters.
 
Breeding Platies
Chris from Ft. Worth, Texas, calls and says he's got five females and one male Platy that he's trying to breed in his 20-gallon aquarium. Tom and Nevin ask Chris to call back in a few weeks with an update about his Platies.
 
Feeding Baby Bettas
Steve Corandan, the professional fish breeder from New Jersey, calls and responds to Ronnie's comment that Baby Betta fish can't eat baby brine shrimp. Steve has had success feeding baby brine shrimp to Baby Betta Fish. Tom talks about some his adventures raising Killiefish and Baby Betta Fish in ponds.
 
 
Segment Four
Breeding Tropical Fish
Tom and Nevin continue to talk about breeding fish with Steve Corandan, who agrees that not getting discouraged and persisting is vital to successfully breeding fish.
 
Conditioning Female Breeders
Steve says feeding females live food is important in many species of fish. A female needs to be conditioned so she can fill with eggs before spawning. Steve recommends live Black Worms, Live Brine Shrimp, or Frozen Blood Worms. Feeding a variety of foods is important. It's important to do frequent partial water changes, and many species of fish need to have the temperature of the water increased, but some species like Cory Catfish need cooler water.
 
Breeding Zebra Danios
Steve talks about his experiences spawning Zebra Danios, and says Danios are not a good fish for a small breeder to raise and try to sell, but Angel Fish are usually a good fish for a small breeder. Steve raises his Angels to have bodies about the size of a dime in about 8 to 10 weeks.
 
Thank you
A big sincere thank-you to Rebekah from West Virginia, to Dan from Dallas, to Chris from Fort Worth, and to Steve from New Jersey for calling during the show. Tom and Nevin encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk during the show and talk about your pet fish.
