TedsFishroom Difference

I was very nervous about making this video…  Some friends of mine were sitting around the fish room talking about fish, and the discussion took turn towards all the things that I do associated with selling fish.  Two of my guests were customers from out of state who drove up for a visit.  They were really grilling me on quarantine, sources, my trips to meet suppliers, packing, feeding…  I started to wonder if I had done something wrong!  After about two hours one of them said to me, ‘why aren’t you telling people all of this?’  I did not have a good answer.

They started to make a list of all the things that they called the ‘TedsFishroom Difference’, and encouraged me to make a video.  So I did.  I also sat on this video for a while, because talking about myself in such a direct manner is uncomfortable to me.  I showed it to the guys who were pushing me to make this video, and they said, ‘perfect!’  So here it is… The TedsFishroom Difference.

Iquitos, Peru – Part 1

Here is the first installment from last month’s trip to Iquitos, Peru.  The purpose of the trip was to get our feet wet with visiting Iquitos.  We have every intention of going back, hopefully more than once each year.  So this trip was pretty loosely planned out, and we scheduled out days based upon what was available to us.  This first video is about our first foray out into the city to look at fish sellers.  The video specifically shows the aquarium of my main supplier in Peru.  Enjoy….

New Fish from Peru Video

Here is a video showing most of the fish that I received on this last Peru order.  Everything looks great, and there are some species I have never had before (or even seen before!).

Catfish From Peru

Here is a video highlighting some of the fish that recently arrived from Peru.  The order was predominantly catfish, and so is the video.  Enjoy…

Apistogramma sp. Melgar

It is amazing what a few black worms will do to cure apisto shyness.  This video is of some Apistogramma. sp. ‘Melgar’ that took two days to lose their fear of the camera… but it required liberal quantities of worms to do it.  This has to be one of the most under-appreciated dwarf cichlids from Peru.  I think it is beautiful, especially the huge females.  Here is a picture:
