The Mbuna Babies are about 3-Weeks Old.
This video shows some of the baby Mbunas born in Tom's 55-gallon Mbuna Aquarium. There were 31-babies from a female Socolofi's mouth. Tom put them in a 29-gallon aquarium. When first seen they were about 5/16ths of an inch long, which is about 8 millimeters. About 3-weeks later, as shown in the video above, they are about 15/16ths of an inch long, which is about 24 millimeters. So they have approximately tripled in length in 3-weeks. This means their mass or weight is probably about 27-times bigger!! These numbers are fun to think about, but it's much more fun to watch them. Everyday they learn to do something new. Tom and Nevin talk about them at the beginning of this show. You are invited to call during the show and talk about these fish or any fishy topic that interests you.
The fish, shown above, is a
so-called "OB Morph", which is an
"Orange Blotch". It's a dominant mature male about 5" long and lives in Tom's Mbuna Aquarium. It's probably a so-called Red Zebra, which has the scientific name Pseudotropheus
Maylandia estherae. But there are
OB patterns in other
Mbuna species. So this may not be a
Zebra. Whatever it is, it is a dazzling beauty with a tremendous metallic sheen.
The fish, shown in two pictures just above, also live in Tom Mbuna Aquarium, and both are also mature male Red Zebras. Tom will talk about them during the show.
