Electric Yellow Labidochromis
Last Wednesday just before the Pet Fish Talk Show Nevin brought over a new Male Electric Yellow, which is also called the Lemon Yellow. This species is one of the most colorful Mbunas from Lake Malawi, and it's also smaller and less aggressive than most Mbuna species. Tom said, "Wow! That's a beautiful fish! Thanks a lot!"

Another Malawi Peacock: The Bi-Color
Maybe there's a little bit of harmless confusion. These Malawi Peacock Cichlids that Nevin has obtained recently are not completely new to the aquarium hobby or to science. But they are new to Tom. The one shown above, is Tom's newest. Scientist have classified it in the genus Aulonocara with all the other Malawi Peacocks. Click here to buy Peacock Cichlids.
Tom's Rainbow Shark
As many of you know, Tom has two Rainbow Sharks in one of his 55-gallon aquariums, which also contains mature Angelfish, Serpae Tetras, Sterbai Cory Catfish, a male Red Betta, Clown Loaches, a Yoyo Loach, some Bushymouth Plecos, and a Three-Beacon Pleco. This aquarium is crowded, but Tom is a very experienced aquarist, and he watches his fish very carefully. He feeds premium fish food, and the aquarium has very good filtration. For many months the Rainbow Shark, shown above, was harassed all the time by the other darker Rainbow Shark, but now the two Rainbows are about equal and confront each other as equals from time to time. All of the fish mentioned in this paragraph are very good aquarium fish for many reasons, and all are highly recommended. Click here to buy aquarium fish like those mention in this paragraph.
Male Angelfish Fighting
These two males fought all day Saturday, then spawned Saturday evening on sites about 15" from each other. That's very close. Too close and led to intense fighting. Tom had never seen Male Angels fight like these two, and Tom will probably talk about it for a couple of minutes during this Pet Fish Talk Show.
In the picture just above, the female Gold Veil Angel on the upper left has just laid some eggs on the ornament. Next the male Leopard Veil angel in the middle will fertilize the eggs. while the female Gold Angel on the right stays close. The female on the right spawns about about every 10 or 12 days with the same male. So this male spawns regularly with these two females.
Freshly Laid Angelfish Eggs
In the picture just above you can see some of the freshly laid Angelfish eggs. The female laid several eggs at a time. Swimming close to the surface and pasting a row of the sticky eggs onto the ornament from her ovipositor. This ceramic ornament has an ideal surface for the Angelfish eggs.

Angelfish Ovipositor Releasing an Egg?
In the picture just above Nevin says he can see an Angelfish egg just starting to emerge from the end of the female Angelfish's ovipositor
Close-up of the Ovipositor Releasing an Egg.
In the picture just above, we can see a closer view of the ovipositor. Maybe Nevin is right. Maybe we can see an egg emerging from the tip of the ovipositor.
One of Tom's Serpae Tetras
This is one of a school of ten Serpae Tetra's this live with many other fish in Tom's 55-gallon Angelfish Aquarium. Click here for more about Serpae Tetras.
On Monday Tom was still not feeling too good. To cheer him up brother Nevin brought him over two Rams, including the one shown above, plus a Lamprologus leleupi and a Tropheus moorii. Now that's a pretty good way to cheer a brother up.
Here are a couple of quick snap shots of the Leleupi. This fish's ancestors lived in Lake Tanganyika in East Africa, but this fish was born and raised on a famous fish farm. This is a very interesting fish that Tom and Nevin will probably talk about during this show.
