This Week's Video of Tom's Angelfish Aquarium
Just above you can see Tom's Angelfish Aquarium at night with all the lights turned-off except one red-colored light. For many years Tom and Nevin have heard that many types of fish cannot see the color red, and that in pure red light those fish cannot see. So Tom tried it. This video shows the aquarium about 30-minutes after the main lights were turned-off and just the red light was on. Tom and Nevin will surely talk about this video during the next Pet Fish Talk Show. You are invited to call during the show and talk with them about these fish, this aquarium, red lights, or anything else remotely fishy.
Special thank to John Pitcairn of the San Diego Tropical Fish Society

the News. Click here to go to the web site of the San Diego Tropical Fish Society. Tom and Nevin hope to attend the meeting next Sunday evening at 7:00 pm. Whether they go or not, you should go, if you live near San Diego.
Hi Tom and Nevin. It's Jay in the UK. I have emailed before with questions about angelfish, and my girlfriend is the one that purchased her own 'PINK' aquarium ... makes a good raising tank now. Just a quick email to show you a couple of pictures that i have taken of my angelfish with my new Canon EOS 500d camera. After looking at Toms lovely photos i decided to get myself a new camera and take some of my fish. Below i have attached a few for you to look at. 3 photos are from my planted aquarium and two are from my large BIORB LIFE which is much easier to photograph. Which one do you prefer? Kind regards Jamie England Click here to shop for a Canon Camera.
An Email from Mitisha
"I'm not sure but I think my fish is pregnant. Can you tell me if it is and
what to do? Thanks you so much! Mitisha"
Reply: Hello Mitisha, thank you for your email. Yes, your fish is very pregnant. We can see that it's a female Livebearer, which is a group of pet fish that release live babies. Click here to learn a lot more about what to do. By the way, we think your fish is a female so-called Red Lyretail Swordtail, and we see she has a large gravid spot on the rear part of her abdomen. What is a gravid spot? It's actually a dark area caused by the baby fish inside her abdomen.
