A Flagtail Porthole Catfish, Dianema urostriatum, a wild fish from the Amazon Rainforest, shown in this picture living in a planted aquarium.
Bill Cline's Flagtail Porthole Catfish
It was Halloween afternoon, and Bill Cline, dressed as a swashbuckling buccaneer with an authentic looking long sword, stood next to his beautiful planted aquarium on display at the San Diego Tropical Fish Society's recent annual show. Tom said, "Hey Bill, you never see that Catfish anymore." And Bill, "Yes, and I really missed them, so I asked Ron at Pet Kingdom, here in San Diego, if he could get some, and he special ordered them for me. They're Flagtail Porthole Catfish. Ron is a good guy, and these catfish are great." Tom agreed that Ron is a good guy, and the Portholes are a great catfish.

Congo Tetra Males Chasing each other.
In the four pictures just above you can see some of Bill Cline's Congo Tetras. First, Tom noticed how very beautiful they looked, then he noticed two of them swimming together side-by-side around and around the aquarium in a circle about 12" in diameter. Each trip around they got closer to each other and swam faster. Finally, they swam in a very small circle with each one chasing the other's tail in a circle about 3- or 4-inches in diameter. It was very interesting to watch.
Ryukin Fantail Goldfish - Calico variety
Calico Ryukin Goldfish
There were about 60 to 80 aquariums on display with fish. This was a simple bare aquarium with a printed background taped to the back. There were two large round goldfish, including this Calico Ryukin, which some people call a Fantail. Very pretty fish.
Aquarium Spring
Mark Ferguson's Aquarium Spring !!
Tom and Nevin have known Mark for a long time and have come to realize that he's just about the most inventive aquarist they've ever known. Mark had a powerhead attached to the back of his aquarium. That powerhead was attached to a piece of rigid plastic tubing that looked to be about 3/8ths of an inch in diameter. The tubing went down the back of the aquarium and made a 90-degree turn to go across the bottom of the aquarium. In about the middle of the aquarium the tubing made another 90-degree turn to go back up vertically and end about an inch or so below the surface of the gravel. Turn on the powerhead and the gravel churns upwards to create a small spring. Very nice and very creative, and not too difficult. Tom said, "Dang, that's exactly the kind of thing I'd like to have invented."
Rasboras in an Asian Biotope Aquarium
Mark's Rasboras
This picture shows the top of the aquarium that had the spring near the bottom. The fish, shown above, are very beautiful Rasboras, living in crystal clear water.
Black Ghost Knifefish
Bill Cline's Black Ghost Knifefish
Can you see it hiding among the plants in the middle of the picture? Black Ghosts hide during the day and come out at night. But this one was very active and interesting to watch.

So-Called Red Malawi Peacock
Shown above are two more pictures taken this week of Tom's new Red Peacock, a species in the genus Aulonocara, which contains many fish that live away from the rocks in Lake Malawi in East Africa. This fish was born and raised on a famous fish farm.

A new Eureka Jake
Nevin brought Tom over another new fish. This is another Aulonocara species from Lake Malawi. This species has very long graceful fins. All Aulonocara species are very good aquarium fish.
Callers during this Show
Roger from Friendswood, Texas, which is near Houston, calls and talks about how he solved the problem that he described in a previous Pet Fish Talk Show. Roger has switched to a different water conditioner, and he now has a Eco-Bio Block in every aquarium. Roger says he recommends having an Eco-Block in every aquarium. Nevin and Tom both say Eco-Bio Blocks solved water problems in their aquariums. Click here to go to the listening guide for a Pet Fish Talk interview about Eco-Bio blocks. Click here to learn more about Eco-Bio blocks. Roger  recently visited the Moody Gardens Aquarium in Galveston, Texas, and sent a nice postcard, shown just below, to the Bailey Bros.
Evan from Colorado calls and talks about the 55-aquarium that he helps maintain in his High School. Tom and Nevin have some suggestions on how to make it more interesting.
The Bailey Brothers encourage YOU to call Pet Fish Talk
during the show and talk about your pet fish.
