Anguilla anguilla in Adriatic
Posted on: 18/12/2007 04:14:00

Seeing plenty of Anguilla anguilla in dense Zostera marina and Z. noltii beds in Novigradsko More, a lagoon off the Velebitski Cana, Central Croatian Adriatic. Wondering if Anan feeds on the also very common green urchin Psammechinus tubercularis. Cant find any reference to Anan feeding on urchins or other echinoderms.

Dear Sir, The photograph of Glyptothorax telchitta is not correct one. It seems to be Glyptothorax cavia. The adhesive apparatus is having central pit and it is only present in Glyptothorax cavia. I want to send the original photograph. I have some photographs of other species too. What is your suggestion in this regards. Looking forward for reply soon. With regards, LAKPA TAMANG

I thought my black molly had ich about three weeks ago and treated the tank with Maricide. After observing a couple of days later, I thought the medicine didn't take , so I re-treated the tank. (when I initially treated the tank, I didn't do a before water change, as that wasn't in the instructions, plus I had the light on the whole time, and I've been told that that was wrong) SO, I did a 33% water change, treated the tank on days 1,3 and 5 and on the 7th day did another 25% water change. This morning, (about 1 week later) i noticed other white spots on this other side. NOW, it looks as if the spots have fallen off and he has lost some gills. (it looks like little patches are missing if you look closely) Anyway, I REALLY hope SOMEONE can help me out. He's a funny fish and I really don't want to lose him.

Posted on: 9/11/2007 19:10:00

The fish Taito used as a basis for the Darius games' main enemies are usually easy enough to pin down. Except for one Prickly Angler. It's not the Lophius variety of anglerfish, I believe. Fortunately, the game's artist was nice enough to include a photo of it on his website, which I'm including.

When I click some of the species in Fishbase there is no information besides the species name and the primary reference at the top. All the other info is missing. Yet if I Google the species, the full Fishbase page is cached. Are people re-doing these pages? I also get error messages when clicking links on the species page. Re-clicking often gets it to work.

Lizard Fish from southern edge of Georges Bank
Posted on: 19/10/2007 07:20:00

We captured the attached pictured fish by trawl on the third leg of the NOAA MMFS NE Groundfish Bottom Survey in the area off of Cape Cod USA. I imagine it could have been caught in the Gulf Stream and dropped off here but did not see any occurences on the dot map of reported occurences for Synodus saurus which it superficially resembles from this fish physiologist's perspective as a volunteer on the fish survey. I would like to correctly label the picture in my online pictures of my participation.

I have had convict ciclids for about a year. They have had babies and all that fun stuff, but when i went to get rid of them, sell them, or trade them nobody would take them becuse convicts aren't that "special". I talked with someone and they said that i could do african ciclids and be able to sell them. What i want to know is what would be the best in terms of sexing ability (like how easy), color, and how well i would be able to sell the offspring. Do you have any suggestions? I would like something with some color, and something that would look good. Along with that something that i would actually be able to find and buy, not something that is so rare i wouldn't be able to find. Thank you for your time and help!

Blind Betta?
Posted on: 21/8/2007 22:48:00

We have a male Betta for 3 weeks now. His color and mobility improved since we bought it and appeared happy. Just today morning he looked very pale and we noticed that he hits against the glass when he swims (it appears accidental) another thing: we noticed that he does not fight with his reflection in a mirror we put (not ever) and he is not eating well. What is wrong with my fish? is he blind? is he sick? he is very pale, what can i do?

Thank you for such an enlightening article (Electric catfishes). I own four of these babies, (2 X 2.5in. & 2 X 8.5in.). Yep! Out of all my pet fish, (55 total), my elect. cats give me the best show. Watching them swim and eat and just plain be, is a sight to behold.

Identify this wrasse (hybrid?)
Posted on: 11/8/2007 03:35:00

Can anyone please help identify this wrasse. It's caught in Sweden a few days ago, was about 8-9 cm long (about 3.5 inches), and has resemblances of both the Ballan wrasse (Labrus bergylta) and Cuckoo wrasse (Labrus mixtus), both of those were also caught during the same fishing trip, as well as Corkwing wrasse (Symphodus melops). Would this be a hybrid between any of those species mentioned, or is it a totally different species? Maybe one that isn't normally a native of Swedish waters? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I posted before that I had Guppies and that one had died. Well they all died. Before I get more I figure I need to understand why every single one died on me. If it was hostility I would have expected some to survive. Since I live in Arizona it gets hot so i thought maybe they were too warm. Most likely I believe it was the water, but I poured the tank out before taking a sample. Any thoughts based on similar experience would be appreciated.

1. Would counting the number of eggs in the ovary of a female be a good taxonomic character? 2 Give reasons why metabolic rate as measured by oxygen consumption may not be a good taxonomic character? 3 What kind of characters are useful identifying living fish in their natural habitat? Are these necessarily the same as the best characters to distinguish preserved specimens? 4 Would gill raker counts from both sides of a fish provide twice the useful taxonomic information as a single count from left side? 5 Why is relative eye diameter ( eye diameter expressed as a percent of standard length ) usually greater in juveniles than in adult fish?

I was on holiday in Kiribati and saw a small fish of somewhat dogfishlike appearance and would like to identify it. Unfoturnately, all I have are some pictures of it in the water (we couldn't catch it) and it had escaped from some netting which was still partially strangling it around the gills. It was about the length of my hand and forearm, pale brownish-grey, with a broad, flat head (hence the dogfish idea) and a wide, sharp tail, a whiter blue trimmed with an almost black edge. It had 2 dorsal fins, two fins by the gills and an anal fin. Can anyone identify the species?

We are working on growth of catfish pectoral spines in Ictalurus and Ameiurus and much to our surprise,small spines tend to be pristine and large ones invariably have their tips broken. Since a bigger spine is less likely to break than a small one, this finding is paradoxical. Does anyone have any specific information about what might cause a large spine to break?

Posted on: 15/4/2007 18:29:00

When I was sent this picture I though I would be able to figure the species out in a matter of minutes. WRONG!!!! Does anyone know what the name of these fish is? Looks to be maybe Pterocaesio tile or maybe some other fusilier!!!!

definition about minimum population doubling time
Posted on: 15/4/2007 01:46:00

I would like to be sure about the definition of minimum population doubling time. I know that it is the minimum time requested for a population to redouble its individuals, but in what ecological conditions? Shall we suppose that the population is not exploited and it finds, in the area we are considering, all it needs to survive (food, temperature,...), shan't we? Thank you in advance. Anto.

Dear Fishbase: Today I was looking for information on a very large catfish that is caught in Amazonian rivers in Peru and certainly other South American countries. In Peru, the common name is "Salton" which means "Jumper" because it can be seen quite frequently leaping several feet out of the water. I have pictures of one we caught in 1975 on the Tigre river in northern Peru. This river empties into the Maranon above where it meets the Ucayali to become the Amazon above Iquitos, Peru. This fish was 2" short of 7' long and weighed 220 pounds. I have, however, seen pictures of a fish eight and one half feet long weighing 368 pounds. Some of my men caught another large one of which I did not get photos or any details other than it was very large. It was caught on the Ucayali river where it changes its name from the Urubamba. I am trying to get exact information on it and would be happy to provide my pictures if they would be of any use to your database. Sincerely, Tony Luscombe

I am unfamiliar with identifying eels - can someone assist me in understanding what I have and what to do with these guys. They were sold as fresh water Snowflake eels they are about 10 to 12 inches long. They seem to accept a Kuhli Loach in their curling up together. They do not appear to be distressed - they seem to like looking at me. I put hiding spots around the aquarium and they chose the one in the front of the tank where they can look out. I have several dozen guppy's in with them - they prefer fiddler crabs as food. I can't seem to figure out how often they eat or if they are eating the guppy's. All I find are comments like you might have to coax them to start eating. They eat crabs easily when no one is around. How do I determine the right amount of salt in the water for them? Any information in LAYMAN TERMS would be greatly appreciated! below you will find the photo link's to them - these aren't the best images. They seem to have a fin along the length of their body's. Thank you for any assistance.

ultramarine blue fish with gold-sparkling scales
Posted on: 16/2/2007 12:08:00

i was snorkeling at the wreck of the gamma or the cali reef near the port of georgetown in the cayman islands and saw a group of maybe 5 of these 5 inch long ultramarine blue fish with gold-sparkling scales. they seemed to be fiddling with the reef about 12 feet below the surface. the sparkling gold effect was not coloration bt rather an irridescent reflecting interference or filtering effect. i am not convinced that it was any of the following coral beauty angelfish - it was not disc-shaped really and did not have lobes on the fins. blue chromis - i have yet to find a good picture that shows the sparkling golden scale effect. blue tang surgeonfish - i think they usually appear in larger schools. young blue parrotfish - i didn't really see any coral chewing, and i imagine they are more solitary. does anyone know?

It has been 10 years in March since Dale Weber was killed in Brazil in an auto accident while he was looking for killifish. I would like to donate his fish publications (killifish and general acquarim) to the Steinhart or any group (San Francisco Aquarium Association, BAKA, etc.) that would like them. Please let me know if there is any interest my cell is 415-246-0530. William can deliver them within the bay area.

I was browsing online, looking for some reference on my last name and this website intrigued me. To think, me and a fish have the same last name. Funny. Whoever this message goes to, I'm doing some research on my roots and just wanted to know if you know anything about ISAZA. Obviously, if the fish has the name, it was given that for a reason. If possible, I would love a comment. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Samuel Isaza

Your advice on Fishes edu project for kids
Posted on: 2/1/2007 22:24:00

Hello - All of you seem to be knowledgeable fish enthusiasts from around the world. I am an artist and founding director of an 18-year old nonprofit organization, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc., based in New York City. I'd like to receive your advice about a project we are developing about fishes for children around the world. From my personal amazement of extraordinary diversity, beauty, and human benefits from ocean life and fishes and concern about their rapidly-diminishing supply, ASCI is developing an educational performance project called "Fishes Feed Us." The power of teens to influence parents and elders has been proven -- they were instrumental in passage of the European seatbelt law -- and this power will be key to our public education awareness performance project. First the kids will learn about the simple concepts of fish reproductive biology and the delicate balance of the marine ecosystem. This knowledge will inform their participation in a public performance where they wear fish costumes, move like fish, and will "speak" for the fishes, and for themselves -- putting a human face on this travesty. My questions to you: What do you see going on out there? off the coasts of South Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Pacific Rim, Alaska, etc. Do people in the fishing villages realize that by dynamiting the reefs that they are destroying what took 200-years to build the "homes" of the fishes? Do you see efforts at educating the local fishermen about how to create sustainable ocean fisheries? If you know of an environmental education center that works with children in these parts of the world, would very much appreciate your leads and your comments in general. Looking forward to your in-put. Happy New Year! Cynthia Pannucci Founder, Director Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. [email protected]

Change tank temp??
Posted on: 2/1/2007 01:28:00

I have a coldwater BiOrb with 2 small zebra danios. Id like to change my tank to tropical, I know these fish can live in warm water, so can i gradually increase the temp to tropical levels to add new ones, or shall I wait until they die & start again from scratch with warmer water? Many thanks
