  1. Today
  2. Good Evening Gentlemen That's you @Pepperbris and @wadedidit I do appreciate that there are the silent readers coming along on the GPG ride, although it's best if I just keep puddling along and don't remember that the Billabong posts are heading for 130,000 views in total... FYI - Daughter #1 has a partner and is living/farming on 67 acres near Gympie. She has a fish tank with a GNF, but says it needs a clean before you see any photos. She also has a number of dams that they want to stock with Redclaw yabbies and possibly Silver Perch, so I think the fishy-bug has been successfully passed on.. I'll be back in Brisvegas with time to clean the filters before flinging off to Synney again next week. Discovered last week that the local greengrocer had giant cos-type lettuce. Tall, long-leaved ones like spinach, but actually lettuce. He sold me a box of slightly droopy ones that had started wilting in his cold room for $10 (I've been buying Icebergs at $4 ea); the gouramis just smash them as I sprinkle leaves on the surface. No wonder the goldfish suffer the odd casualty on occasion, as the GPG just ram the lettuce and swirl back under with a huge splash. Ha! It only LOOKS like a video, but it does show some v.happy GPGs. Cheers from Grover still stuck in Sydney
  3. 9cm L397 male for sale $100 Fed a mixed diet of zucchini, algae wafers, repashy, carrot, watermelon. Bring a bucket for transportation.
  4. x12 3.5-3.9cm $25ea x10 4-4.9cm $30ea (Min buy of 2). When looking to buy any catfish/plecos , it is best to buy above 3cm as anything below this size has a low survival rate. Some of you may be lucky but it’s not worth the risk and the money. At the 3cm plus mark they are more stronger in terms of adjusting to their new environment. Breeding plecos is my hobby, a lot of time and effort goes into them, and I am happy to offer any advice on their care upon request. Fed a mix of algae wafers, zuchinni, meat pellets (1-2 times a week), and occasionally carrot, watermelon. (They also must have driftwood in their tank). Please bring a bucket for transport
  5. Hi all , I have a few males of these rare little zebras excess to my needs, $10ea, shipping is available starting at $20 a box . Fish are located in the Gladstone area. If interested, please contact me on 0411263007 or here. Cheers Scott
  6. Yesterday

  8. Good good, your daughter still live with you? I remember you trying to induct her into the hobby.
  9. Ha ha! Rumours of Grover's demise have been greatly exaggerated He's currently in Sydney, for a few weeks of work, and has left the GPGs in the care of a new housemate. Fully detailed instructions about feeding peas, beans, cherry tomatoes, and the tearing apart of lettuces with your bare hands were provided. Also, the fishy filters were cleaned and water plant islands reviewed. New housemate looks to be a very reliable lady and is not fazed by giant monsters in the Billabong, nor by The Dog. Actually The Dog quite approves of her if the tail-wagging is any guide. Grover has been a good procrastinator lately. He's decided that re-building the Big Box Filter can wait til Easter. Taking some work leave then to do the plumbing job properly ( = expensively). Thanx for the vote of confidence, I only write this because I know there's at least 6 people who read it !! Cheers, Grover (We want less about him and more about the fish )
  10. Last week
  11. I actually thought you had left, so I kind of left too. But I’m back.
  12. Gosh I have no idea where that is! I can’t drive until 6 June as I’ve just had recent brain surgery to remove a cancer.
  13. I have 15 OB Dimmi Comps that might be around the 8cm mark. Have just started breeding, they are in a tank out the back, not receiving much love. Super pretty with great colours! Box of coopers red cans and they are all yours please SMS me on 0432980115
  14. I have heaps of Orange Heads for cheap at Birkdale mate
  15. 20200224_111901.mp4 Hi all, new to this forum, last time i used one was when i was setting up my FH tank 4 years ago, they were only tiny little swimmers too. My tank has been quite successful up until now, but i introduced two changes so the fault is mine, looking for some advice on what to do without using harmful chemicals. Okay so i changed my filter media in both of my internal filters, also stupidly done a 75% water change, and started using my blue and white led light on the tank again, which has been on way too long each day, need to get a timer! It was all guilt driven, i have felt guilty for some time now, this started when i had my new bub, so my tank water changes and regular beautifying stopped and they were slightly neglected. So i have black algae or long hair green algae making a home in my aquarium and i checked my water conditions yesterday and the results are the following. GH 180, KH 0, PH 6.0, N02 0, N03 200 NH3-NH4 0.25 1st photo my tank after the the big clean, the video shows the algae it's not major yet, but I'm sure it will get worse if left untreated. Please help! 20200224_111901.mp4
  16. Some of the fish that were at the Clayfield auction on Saturday 22 Feb 2020.
