Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
 
Fish in the News. Each week the Bailey Brothers start the Pet Fish Talk Show with some fun and interesting stories about fish in the news.
 
 
Eartheater Cichlid
 
From the Rio Tocantis in Brazil,
Blue Lipped Macho Eartheater
The Latin name for the genus Retroculus is derived from its relatively back positioned eyes. Just as well the name could have been Robustorpedus, for these fish are very powerful and muscular, and yet their overall shape is sleek. The type species R. lapidifer has a distinctive habit of resting on the bottom in a pose resembling pushups, only the supporting hands are replaced by the erect ventral fins. Their swimming seems awkward at first and due to the diminished swimming bladder the fish need to overcome a constant "over weight". However, all awkwardness is gone instantly as something interesting catches their attention and the fish darts with lightning speed. This and everything else in Retroculus seems to be perfectly suited to their rheaphilic (rapids loving) lifestyle starting from behavioral characteristics and strong fins, and ending to the extremely adhesive eggs.

Legoland Aquarium
 
In Carlsbad, just north of San Diego, California,
Legoland Aquarium Opens Next Summer.
A 36,000-square-foot "Sea Life" aquarium will be built next to Legoland California in Carlsbad, it was announced today. The $20 million, two-story aquarium is slated to open sometime next summer, according to Nick Varney, chief executive officer of Merlin Entertainments, Legoland California's parent company. A separate admission will be charged to enter the aquarium, which will feature educational and interactive exhibits aimed at children, park officials said. It will be the 29th "Sea Life" aquarium in the world, and the first one to open its doors in North America. Click here to read more.
 
 
African Cichlid Aquarium
 
In Opelika, Alabama,
Couple Surrounded by Aquariums say Fish offer Serenity.
There’s something fishy going on around Barry and Barbara Milka’s home. And they wouldn’t have it any other way. When you step through the front door of the Milka residence, you’re greeted by the evidence. Twelve fish aquariums that hold between 5 and 75 gallons are set up throughout their home. The aquariums are home to such tropical fish as Severums, Bala Sharks, beta splendens (also called Japanese fighting fish) and several different species of cichlid - all of which Barbara Milka could discuss in detail any time she’s asked about them. Click here to read more.
 
 
Baby Seahorses
 
In Australia,
Seahorses Released into Sydney Harbor.
The Sydney Aquarium has released 30 seahorses bred in captivity into Sydney Harbor as part of an Australian-first study to try to boost their numbers, but it is concerned poachers may intervene. The tiny black animals were carefully transported from a tank into the netted area at Manly Cove, in northern Sydney, this morning. The five-centimeter-long white's seahorses have been tagged and will be closely monitored by the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and a team of divers. Click here to read more.
 
 
Coral Frags for Aquariums
 
In Normal, Illinois,
Coral Enthusiasts Swap Frags. 
A battle between two rival species of coral was just one of the things people could see Saturday at the Bloomington-Normal Area Reef Club’s first “frag swap.” More than 50 aquarium enthusiasts who specialize in raising coral came from as far away as Iowa and Wisconsin to the K-9 Country Club in Normal to trade “frags,” or fragments of living coral. Raising the tiny marine creatures, whose colonies form reefs, is something the average person could do, thanks to advances in technology, advocates said. Rich Dietz, clad in a black T-shirt bearing a picture of a Firemouth Cichlid and the caption “Mr. Firemouth” in honor of his skills breeding that species, pointed to a crab in one tank. Its claws were barely visible in the waving tentacles of the anemone with which it has a symbiotic relationship. Click here to read more.
 
 
Fish Fossils
 
In National Geographic Magazine
Shark Ate Amphibian Ate Fish: First "Food-Chain Fossil"
About 290 million years ago, a prehistoric shark ate an amphibian, which in turn ate a frog—and all three were preserved in one of the first food-chain fossils ever discovered. The researchers are puzzled as to why modern-day sharks do not live in fresh water or eat amphibians like their ancient counterparts. Click here to read more.
 
  
Between the Central and Eastern Pacific Ocean,
Oceanic Invasions Across Darwin's Impassable Barrier.
Reef fish share genetic connections across what Darwin termed an 'impassable barrier', 5000km of deep ocean separating the eastern and central Pacific, according to a report by Smithsonian scientists in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. By sequencing mitochondrial DNA from 20 morpho-species of fairly sedentary shore fish on both sides of the divide, the study confirms close relationships between populations of the same fish species across the barrier and indicates that genes move in both directions across the barrier. Click here to read more.
 
 
At San Nicolas Island, among California's Channel Islands,
Disease-Resistant Black Abalone Offers Restocking Hope.
US biologists have discovered that black abalone on the most remote of California's Channel Islands, San Nicolas Island are resistant to the deadly bacterial disease known as withering syndrome. The discovery may help save these now rare inter-tidal mollusks from extinction, as scientists hope to soon breed these animals in captivity for release in the wild. San Nicolas Island has been the site of several severe outbreaks of withering syndrome, said Carolyn Friedman, a professor at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle, explaining the island abalones’ hardiness. They are the descendants of that one percent of the population that survived. Click here to read more.
 
 
Yangtse River
 
In China
Pollution in the Yangtze River can be Reversed.
Swiss and Chinese scientists have found that pollution in China's 6,300 kilometre-long (3,915 mile-long) Yangtze river is "enormous" but still reversible, Switzerland's development agency said Friday. The results of a joint water quality survey of the world's third largest river, which is also considered one of its most polluted, were "less alarming than expected," the Swiss Development and Cooperation agency (SDC) said in a statement. "The ecosystem of the Yangtze can be saved if China intensifies its activities in water protection now," said survey organizer August Pfluger. The scientists urged Chinese authorities to take protective measures similar to those taken in Europe in recent years, especially with the prospect of further pressure on the river from China's booming economy. Click here to read more.
