Tom is wondering about the pit-like depressions just about the eyes in this fish's head? If he gets a chance he'll ask Nevin during the show. Or you are welcome to call and talk about anything fishy.
A Platy with an Unusual Color Pattern
Here are two of the same young male Platy that now lives in Tom's 29-gallon aquarium. This Platy's color pattern seems unusual to Tom, and if he gets a chance, he'll ask Nevin about it too.
Two Platies Sparring
This picture is dimly lit, but the the fish are excited and quarreling.
A Pregnant Female Red Wag Platy
She was swimming quite a bit slower than the other Platies, when this picture was taken. The next morning she looked more normal, but there were no baby Platys to be seen in the aquarium.
Another Female Platy
She's gorgeous, energetic, and lots of fun to watch. Platys are very hardy, inexpensive, and do well in a not too big aquarium like Tom's 29-gallon.
Tom's Tropheus moorii named Tro
Just above are fresh pictures of Tro. As we've mentioned before, he was born and raised on a fish farm, but his ancestors lived in Lake Tanganyika in East Africa. Even though these are not dazzlingly colorful pictures, they are interesting. You can see Tro's scales very clearly. The orange highlights on the tips of some of his fins are interesting too, and of course his teeth. Tro often says, "Me want food much now." Today Tom gave him 8-medium to small meals, and he is doing very well in the 29-gallon aquarium with his pet Platys, as shown below. Tro says, "Platys be good pets for Tro."
Impeller from a Penguin 350B Filter
Notice the fibers next to the paddles about a 1/4" from the left end of this impeller. Nevin checked the impellers in Tom's Penguin 350B filters. one impeller was OK, but the other, shown above, had some fibers wrapped around the shaft. Nevin carefully removed the fibers, and put the impeller back into the filter. Now Tom's Penguin 350B filter works just like new! Tom highly recommends having a brother come over regularly and fix your aquarium equipment.
