Episode 299: The Catfish Cave: Corydoras Catfish W/ Lynn Mathney
Did you know that there are catfish that stay under 4''? Mini catfish you say? YES! Corydoras catfish are perfect for community aquariums and smaller aquariums. Most corydoras catfish do not exceed 3-4''. This makes them perfect for home aquariums. Corydoras catfish come from South America and they have hundreds of species in the genus Corydoras. I love Corydoras catfish and am even thinking about setting up a community aquarium with them and a small school of tetras. On this episode of The Catfish Cave, find out about Corydoras catfish as Aqua Alex discusses everything you need to know.

Episode 298: Project Piaba Buy A Fish Save A Tree
Most of the tropical fish species that I really enjoy come from South America and the Amazon river. The Amazon River is home to thousands of different aquatic animals including tropical fish. Wild caught fish are interesting to keep in the home aquarium because of their colors and natural look. Over 90 percent of freshwater tropical fish that come into the hobby are farm raised and are often not even from the countries of orgin where the fish would be found in nature.Deep in the heart of South America’s Amazon Basin, in one of the most pristine and bio-diverse areas on earth, the Rio Negro stretches nearly 2300 kilometers before joining the Amazon itself near the Brazilian city of Manaus. The world’s largest “black water” river, its unique tea-colored water is home to nearly 800 species of freshwater fish, many of which are found nowhere else on earth.One of these fish—the Cardinal Tetra (Paracheirodon axelrodi)—gained worldwide attention after its discovery in the 1950’s. With its vibrant blue-and-red coloration and peaceful schooling behavior, it immediately attracted the attention of the growing aquarium hobby. Over time, an entire industry grew up in the region based on collecting, transporting, and exporting these and other tropical fish species to supply home aquariums, mainly in the US and Europe.Find out all about Project Piaba and hope buying a fish can save a tree and help Rio Negro. What species of fish does Project Piaba deal with?

Episode 297: Aquatic School W/ Aqua Alex: Quarantine Aquariums & Why it's Important
Every tropical fish hobbyist loves getting new fish. Trust me take it from me one of my favorite things about the aquarium hobby is getting new fish. The problem with getting new fish is that there is no way of really knowing where the fish has come from unless the store tells you. There is no way of knowing what conditions the fish has been exposed too, what diseases and parasites the fish has been exposed too and what stress level the fish has been through. Quarantine aquariums are very important when it comes to making sure your current fish and your new fish all stay healthy.What is quarantine? a state, period, or place of isolation in which people or animals that have arrived from elsewhere or been exposed to infectious or contagious disease are placed. They are placed here and given meds to heal.Join me Aqua Alex as I explain the important of QT tanks and why you should have atleast one!PLANNED FOR THE SHOW:~ WHY QT TANKS ARE IMPORTANT~ SETTING UP A QT TANK~ MOINTORING NEW FISHAND MORE!

Keeping tropical fish in aquariums means that we must take care of them and feed them a nutritious diet. In order to have healthy colorful and active tropical fish in our aquariums, we must provide them with a quality nutritious diet! Feeding tropical fish may seem easy but there is a lot that goes into it to make sure that your tropical fish lives a good day! In the wild, tropical fish have access to numerous amounts of food sources from which include live fish, crustaceans, algae, plants, fruits, and other sources. How can we implement this in the aquarium hobby? What are some quality fish foods Aqua Alex recommends?
