By: David
This week’s fish of the week is the Columbian
Shark. They are catfish native to South America.
They are among the hardiest of all fish being able to
live in water with a ph as low as 5.5 and as high as
8.5 and they also can live in fresh, brackish, or salt
water (though they mainly live in freshwater) .They
get their name from the way they hunt and eat like
sharks. They are popular aquarium fish due to their

Fish of the Week 5: Oscar
By: David
This week’s Fish of the Week is the Oscar. These South American Chilcids are the most popular chilcid in the world at this present
time. There are 4 captive-bred forms of the Oscar. They are the Albino-Red Oscar, Albino Tiger Oscar, Red Oscar, and the Tiger
Oscar. Of these the Tiger looks most like the wild Oscar and the Albino-Red is the newest form. Oscars sadly often get HITH or
Hole-In –The-Head disease from bad water quality. Captive bred Oscar forms [the Tiger, Albino Tiger, Red, and Albino Red] reach
around 12-14 inches [30-36cm] while the wild Oscar gets larger reaching a size of 18 inches [46cm]. Tune in for next week’s Fish of

Fish of the Week 6: Ripsaw Catfish
By: David
This week’s Fish of the Week is the Ripsaw Catfish.
There are only three members and all are in the genus Oxydoras in
the family Doriadie or Talking catfish. They are giants compared
to their smaller cousins, the Raphael catfish. All members of their
family are found in South America. The Ripsaw catfish is not as
popular as its smaller relatives in aquariums because of their larger
size. Ripsaw catfish can reach 35 inches [90 cm]. Its smaller relative, the Black Talking Catfish gets 16-27 inches [40-70cm].The
third member of the genus, Oxydoras Keri is the same size as the
Black Talking Catfish, but it is endangered. The Ripsaw Catfish
and the Black Talking Catfish are usually black or gray in color
with bony plates on the back. They eat mainly small fish, crustaceans, and insects. Tune in for next week’s Fish of the Week.

Minecraft is a sandbox game created by Markus Persson. (Also known as Notch) Minecraft was originally released for the
PC, but it was also released for the Xbox 360, Iphone, IPod, Ipad, and Android devices. Minecraft was released on May 17, 2009.
The Xbox version was released May 9, 2012. The Pocket Edition (For phones, IPods, and tablets.) was released August 16, 2011. In
Minecraft there are three different modes: Survival, Creative, and Hardcore mode. In survival mode, you must craft and defend yourself from monsters that spawn at night. In creative mode, you have unlimited resources and you cannot die. Hardcore mode is just
like survival mode, but you only have one life. If you kill an animal, you get food so you can eat. Villages spawn randomly in
worlds. You can trade with villagers. You can grow wheat, melons,
pumpkins, carrots, and potatoes (Apples are found in trees). The animals in Minecraft are: pigs, cows, sheep, squid, fish, wolves, ocelots,
and chickens. The monsters in Minecraft are: zombies, skeletons,
creepers, ghast, Endermen, spiders, blazes, silverfish, zombie pigmen, Wither skeletons, slime, magma cubes, Wither, and the Ender
dragon. To beat the game you have to travel to the End and defeat
the Ender Dragon. In Minecraft, if you get enough obsidian,
(Obsidian is created when water touches lava.) you can make a portal
to the Nether. The Nether is another dimension filled with lava, fire,
and Netherack. The monsters in the Nether are zombie pigmen,
ghasts, magma cubes, blazes, Wither skeletons, and the Wither.
