    Would they need the rain to clean their coats from parassites? When I was a kid (and later a teenager), in our tiny (but progressive) country there were no more than two television channels which broadcast only from (about) 7 p.m. till midnight, except for rather short but delightful programs...

    Wow! Sen - sa - tio - nal !! Since a day or two, the layout of Fishlore in my computer has changed. I wonder if that is a general thing. To put it in Italian: non ogni cambiamento è (univocamente) un miglioramento - not every change is (only) an improvement. Here I would have pushed the...

    Apistogramma Borelli Info Or Pictures

    Nice to hear from you! I was wondering how you were doing - not so much because of my question, but because you seemed to have vanished from the Fishlore scene altogether. "In a next life" I am going to pay a visit to your community ... :):) which I find extremely intriguing. On YouTube there...

    According to Wiki - which has a very short entry on her that does not provide a precise birthdate: Joan Walsh Anglund - Wikipedia - she is still around. Fortunately...:):):):). Sounds like you had marvelous years in primary school... I loved going to school, too. There was apparently not so...

    Reminds me of holidays I spent during my childhood in Germany, in the Black Forest and Bavaria. Watching this picture I can almost hear the delightful sound of those crystal-clear, fast-streaming waters again, in which trout thrived...

    Thank you very much! Since a few days it is really cold (fresh by Canadian standards) here. We have a two-season year: warm (hot) and cold (cool). The transition is increasingly abrupt. The cold brings me in In-the-bleak-midwinter-mood. I like to sing along with YT-videos. A fellow YouTuber, a...

    Thanks for pitching in, I guess my fellow countryman is too busy taking new wild-life pictures, to look 'm mushrooms up....:):):):). Do I see and understand correctly that the illustration comes from Alice in Wonderland? As a kid I had difficulty to "grasp" the train of thought of that book and...

    To @Algonquin and to whoever it may concern: I just finished watching this video on YouTube At 3:57 - 5:03 it deals with the northern pitcher plant / turtle sock, which - as was only very recently discovered, eats vertebrates. The video states that visitors to Algonquin Park are advised to...

    Question Are Apistogramma Borelli/reitzigi Really That Hardy??

    I am hopeful they actually are a pair. I kept the male in a tank with a guppy and a few multies. The latter showed no interest in their tankmates. The last few days they started to do digging in the layer of black gravel. I never saw it. There was something else I did not see. Yesterday morning...

    What is the (scientific) name of the mushrooms in the second picture? Have you ever seen them in Holland? The picture brings back memories of my first reading book in first grade, featuring tiny gnomes living in mushrooms. My primary school was close to the dunes, which added to the magic. I...

    Hmmmm, after all, where I am, I'm better off than in many other places of the world....:):). Thanks for reminding me. A cousin of mine presented me years ago with an airplane ticket to visit her ailing mother in Jakarta (my aunt died less than half a year later, a week after my cousin herself...

    Gorgeous! Montana comes from the Spanish (have no tilde on my keyboard)? What type of trout in the last picture? Thank you. Funny, I just read that this species originated in Europe and was from there introduced to other regions of the world. I wonder if the opposite has somehow happened with...

    Wow! I am "jealous" (inverted commas because without them would be against me principles:):):):)...) Here we have only 2 seasons: hot and cool (more than cold - by your Canadian standards). Normally a few days per year at or slightly under the freezing point. I guess there must be lots of...

    My Fish Turned White

    How do you do that, low-cost + efficient + not-traumatizing, both for the fish and the owner...... Edit. My dear fishie must have read my mind. When I turned the light on a while ago, he was neatly lying on one side. I had a terrible problem with sending him on the long journey myself. R.I.P.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Funny enough, lately it rains without me hearing it. At any rate, this was one big hit when I was a kid (am a poet and just don't know it): Nowadays English is a household language so we would have listened to the original: The Cascades are still on it, and amazingly their voices are as good...

    What Are You Listening To?

    Are ye by any chance a distant relative of (St./Saint) Joan of Arc?!?!? Careful, friend: her days were few in number and the end of them was dramatic ...:(:(:(:(.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Thank you for your answer. Was questioning myself if I had missed something due to linguistic/cultural/generational (if the word exists in English) differences caused by geographical distance :):):):).
