An Email from Andy in the UK
Hi Tom and Nevin, My name is Andy and I work as a freelance illustrator and in the UK. I really enjoy listening to Pet Fish Talk while I am beavering away at work. So in return for the many hours of entertainment I thought I would knock up a cheeky picture (shown above) of Tom's Pseudotropheus Maylandia greshakei or Big Blue Bob as he is more affectionately known. It is just a bit of fun but I hope you like it, you never know I may have another for you next week, If I have time.
A Cherry Spot Tropheus moorii named Tro.
As mentioned last week Nevin brought Tom three fish, including the Cherry Spot Tropheus moorii, shown above. This fish was raised on a famous fish farm, but his ancestors lived for millions of years in Lake Tanganyika in Central East Africa. Tropheus moorii is this fish's scientific name. A name that was created by George Albert Boulenger, a famous zoologist, who created many scientific names for fish. The color pattern of T. moorii changes from place to place in Lake Tanganyika.
Cherry Spots were discovered near Bulu Point, which is located in the country of Tanzania on the east side of Lake Tanganyika.
Tom tried to name this fish Troph, but his upper lip slightly overhangs his mouth, and he could not pronounce Troph. So Tom said to him, "Can you say Tro." He could, and the name has stuck. Naming your fish can be fun!
