What a fantastic speaker with a really nice presentation.

Greg if you are reading this we really enjoyed the video's and you did a bang up job.

The presentation had a nice balance between conservation, videos, pictures and education.

I cant wait to see what he has planned for the classic -

Cheers,
Jason

Spawn Rearing Kit from Angelfish Plus

This looks like a great product for raising fry and is applicable to more than just angelfish. There are also some good DIY ideas that can come out of this as well.

I actually tried to make one of my own and have had mixed results. I bought a Jar and Foam from Hobby lobby all for under $10. My problem has been the foam I put into the bottom of the jar kept moving and the fry would get caught on the sides and then under it (it is also hard to keep it all in the right place). I tried diferent sizes and the same results. However to fix this, once the fry were free swimming, I removed the foam from the bottom and just placed a wad of foam in the tube. That way the fry can swim all over the jar and still wont get sucked up the tube. Another problem I have is with the top foam or the lid foam. It only happend once but the top came off and the fry escaped. Luckilly they just joined the rest of their family outside the jar. I was able to take some back and put them back into the jar. I am hoping to move them into their own tank soon.
Anyway I hope the actual kit works better than my DIY project....

So I ordered two of these, I have had problems with my angelfish wigglers surviving. Mario and Ric are convinced its because I am not giving them BBS but I think I might be over feeding them and polluting the water. I am going to pull part of the batch and put it in this container with the next spawn.

New Victorian Species Described

The website Seriously Fish reports that two new species of Victorian cichlids have been described. There is a huge amount of work yet to be done on the taxonomy of Victorian cichlids, so this is welcome news.

The two newly described fish are Haplochromis argens and Haplochromis goldschmitti
