Freshwater Frogfish Fincasters Episode 165

  • Published on Apr 16, 2017
  • Freshwater Frogfish really exist. Not a lot is known about these fish - Antennarius biocellatus Even google searches usually turn up more information on their marine cousins. But Segrest Farms, a fish and pet wholesaler had one one display at the 2017 Global Pet Expo. John took the opportunity to get some great video of the fish and interview Dave Parks with Segrest Farms to find out how to keep it in the home aquarium and more about its life in the wild.

      +RaptorPlayzGames RPG have your local fish store order from Segrest Farms. They most likely have a relationship with them.

    • fincasters
      fincasters  5 years ago +1

      I'm not sure. If you have a local fish shop they likely have a relationship with Segrest Farms. I would have them order that way.

      John Ahlbin there wasn't any problems with the advertisement at the beginning or music at the end. So it was probably a bad microphone they were using. I heard the same thing
