  2. Eheim Heater Problems

    Thanks B_Man. Definitely looking into getting one of those controllers at that price. Has anyone else used these? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Lack of Imports is killing the hobby

    I would be so happy when we can import datnoids....they are not risk at all of breeding and being an invasive species. Love them, but can no longer justify dropping bucket loads of money on a fish anymore. So many good species out there that would be no risk at all with importing that are banned.
  4. Eheim Heater Problems

    I have used one of these temp controllers for a while now and it's always been spot on: http://www.ink-bird.com/products-temperature-controller-itc308.html . Not as sexy looking as the TechDen option but only about $50 delivered from eBay and it has a handy alarm if your heater stops working and the temp drops. They are popular in the homebrew hobby for fermentation fridge control and have a good reputation.

  9. Lack of Imports is killing the hobby

    Gingerbeer, I'm not sure but imports appeared to be easier to get back in the mid 2000's when I was actively looking for more and more species to keep. With the forum being the one place to find everything other than physical shops, I wonder if the imports are just that much harder to find now across all the digital platforms, or they're just not around anymore.
  10. What algae is this?

    Hi team, I've got this stuff growing in a community tank, and it likes to grow on everything including the plants, rocks and backing etc. You can see a heap of it growing on the backing in the photos. Any idea what it is, and any suggestions for getting rid of it? Thanks, Andrew.
  11. We are losing a lot of experiences hobbyists and stores. My freshwater passion is dwarf cichlids and tanganyikans. We have been able to have imports and had some good years. Not the hobby is dead in these areas. It seems to me the imports have stopped dead. Please tell me I am wrong!
  12. Offtopic

    Ok.... I think we should remove all password protection. Means I may have to moderate a few threads, but better to have full open communication is my view. We have a lot of issues in offtopic as we allow discussion of politics, religion and others. We just delete once it becomes abusive and let people start again. Some get upset about missing posts, but I prefer an open communication. We are meant to be adults... for the most part. Want to hear peoples thoughts. Does Off Topic annoy? Have your say now.

  20. Shrimp Rack time!

    *** Its been a while so I thought I would update *** Progress has been slow due to the one and only tank builder here in Townsville taking 3 months to build the tanks! I finally have them and to say Im happy with the quality would be a lie! Bubbles in the silicon and massive chunks of it slathered everywhere... Oh well gotta work with what Ive got... - I drilled 35mm holes in each one of the tanks and was pretty stoked I didnt smash any! I took my time, kept it wet and used an El Cheapo Diamond bit from eBay that came in a set (shipped from Australia as it was here within 4 days). - I have purchased the Pond Pro Air lab EV60 from TheTechDen to run the sponge filters. I will review this once it is all set up. I have also started making a PVC airline with taps to each tank and will upload some pics as that progresses. I got 4mm irrigation fittings from my LFS as he has used them and stocks them as well. - Ive painted the shelving in a waterproof sealer and it looks ALOT better than the original dull brown. - Getting the plumbing supplies has been a bit of a hassle as Ive had to order most of it in (Bulk heads, strainers ect) but the supply shop has been great to deal with! - Ive set up the lights; 4 x 3ft UP Aqua U series for plants. I purchased these from Newbreed Aquatics closing down sale at an absolute steal as well as a whole heap of other stuff! I have no idea how Im going to keep them attached to the underside of the rack bracing as I dont think I can drill in to the light itself. So far I just have it tied up there with some black craft string (cant see it and it works). - Ive set 2 tanks up to start the cycle; they have the bulkheads and strainers attached but blocked off. The Substrate is Benibachi Shrimp soil, with a layer of Mironekuton powder. Ive done this purely because I have a whole heap of Blue Dreams and Neon Yellows hanging off the front of another tank in Sudo Breeder boxes. Thanks for following the build. Once Ive completed more of it, I will update with details and plans as well from the Air System, Plumbing and parts lists ect.

  23. This weekend in the fishroom

    just some off my marine fish dyeing so testing water changers testing
  24. Yes after much reading last night and getting this final video, won't let me upload so I have taken stills. It proves to me that are midge larvae. What a relief. It's taken ages and two canisters full of new media to get this far. Another week and I'll let the fish have a go at them. Just didn't want a parasite problem.
