An Email from Bonnie in Snowy Iowa
Bonnie writes, "Need Tom to shovel my snow ... " Tom takes a quick look at all the snow in Bonnie's pictures and immediately decides that he needs a nap. Later Tom checked his mail and found a box of cookies from Bonnie. The cookies were so good that Tom wondered how many cookies Bonnie would give him if he shoveled snow for a hour?
Fish in the News from Robert in New Jersey
Hi Tom & Nevin, here is this week's FITN from the great white north east under 24+" of snow. Here's wishing you and yours and the Pet Fish Talk audience a Very Merry Christmas. Your Friend, Robert in NJ
Once again it's a big pleasure to thank Robert in New Jersey for ferreting out all these interesting links to Fish in the News. If you find an interesting story, send the link to Tom and Nevin.
As you can see, this Serpae Tetra, that lives in Tom's 55-gallon Angelfish Aquarium, is ... well ... looking pretty good! You can also see its teeth in the lower picture. Serpaes constantly nip on each other, but we've never heard any of them complain about it. This fish's ancestors lived in the Amazon Rainforest in South America.
Yoko the Yoyo Loach
When this Yoyo Loach saw Tom with his camera, it poked its head out of a hole to pose for a quick picture. This Yoyo is a wonderful aquarium fish. Lots of laughs. Highly recommended.
Ramirez the Ram Cichlid
Ramirez lives in Tom's Angelfish Aquarium with the Serpae and Yoyo Loach, shown above. Ramirez constantly tries to supervise the other fish. He is now about 2" long from the tip of his mouth to the tip of his tail, which is sometimes called the total length of a fish as opposed to the standard length, which Nevin may explain during the show. Ramirez's ancestors lived in the Orinoco Rainforest in northeastern South America.
Here's Rufus a Red Male Betta
Rufus lives in Tom's Angelfish Aquarium and is somewhat of a trouble maker. When this picture was taken, both his head and his tail were pointing east.
Spike is a Black Lace Angelfish
Here is one of Tom's Angelfish, Spike, a large male Black Lace Angelfish. Black Lace are dark but not as dark as Black Angels.
Tom's Biggest Clown Loach
This Clown Loach is now about 4-inches (10-centimeters) long, nice and plump, and still growing. Tom wonders if it's a female, because it's quite a bit plumper than the others, and all the Clown Loaches have been getting more colorful lately. Like all the other fish, shown on this page, Clown Loaches are really wonderful aquarium fish.
Sterbai Corydoras Catfish
About ten of these Dwarf Armored Cory Catfish live in Tom's Angelfish Aquarium and constantly scour the bottom for tidbits of food.
