    Giant Pink Gourami – Billabong Bayou

    A Real Update :-) Yes, you've all been very patient with Grover while he is distracted. It's also a "good thing" that she has been patient with me too :- )) The recent cold snap in Brissie galvanised me into action to cover the Billabong. Didn't even stop to pull down the Summer cover - just got the polyfoam pallets out onto the guy ropes then dragged the blue cover on! The GPGs were impressed at my speed! It was late afternoon sunlight when I started, but obviously dark at the finish ha! Grover (now to fire up the heat exchanger on the old pool pump)

    Decent heater that will last!!!

    The big difference is the schegos actually go it. Not just claim it. I’d like to see a cheapy maintain my tanks at 28 degrees in our house like the schegos do.

    TDS Meter

    I use a tds meter everyday at work. Trust me we have tried a lot of them, and the cheap ones are shit. This one is the most reliable that we have found and doesnt go out of calibration frequently. Hope whatever you require it for justifies the cost though....

    Consider making amino's one of those 4. They are a total game changer when it comes to colouration and polyp size IMHO.

    Hi guys Ive been experimenting with levels of filtration in my little 2ft tank. I’ve had it set up for 3 years now, it’s currently stocked with 9 raspbora and a bristlenose and some shrimp. Sand and gravel substrate, led light, no co2. Reasonably planted with needle-java fern, s. repens, s.porto velho, monte-carlo, some ricia, and a couple of crypts. A bit of copper-leaf which is struggling to survive. The java fern is probably the fastest growing plant followed by the repens. I started with a couple of internal filters 2x200l/h, so had heaps of water changeover. I’d stuffed the filters full of matrix and sponge so as to get lots of bio action. I’ve noticed that the plant growth had stalled. I remembered reading that plants use ammonia more easily than nitrate and wondered whether the bacteria filters were competing with the plants for nutrients. I reduced down to one filter and noticed improved plant growth. Then I removed the matrix and got better growth still. Finally I replaced the sponge with floss which I replace weekly/fortnightly. So I have no bio-filter. No doubt there would be some bacteria on the tank and gravel surfaces utilising the nitrite-nitrate cycle, but the filter is now purely mechanical filtration. Plant growth is definitely improved, fish look great and the floss is giving me crystal clear water. Tank looks better than ever! Counterintuitively, I’ve found Nitrates are half what they were (now consistently 10ppm rather than 20+). The plants must be mopping up the ammonia more efficiently so it never gets into the nitrite-nitrate cycle. I thought this was interesting and would share. It’s fun to try things, even if it goes against the current conventional thinking, in this case that more bio-filter is better. steve

    Sick Salvini

    Thanks @ozmo I will try and get my hands on some IAL tomorrow and seperate her from the others, yea you certainly are hard pressed to find a stauncher cichlid pound for pound, my smallest female was beating up both my Cubans when I first got them, and the male was probably 10 times her size in weight, it got to the point shortly after introduction where she had to be removed, it was too hard to watch, they just have a mega chip on the shoulder, relentless and underrated at times

    Sick Salvini

    That looks like stress IMO. Salvini are pound for pound the nastiest little assasins in the Central American scene. I reckon they also have the “death stare” down to a science. If you can seperate her she should come back pretty quick. IAL help with healing and lowering stress also. Hope that helps somewhat.

    Sparkling Gouramis

    Anyone kept these before or currently has them? Saw them online and thought they looked pretty interesting so i ordered a few for my planted tank. Only thing is that i heard they are notorious shrimp hunters. Can anyone second this? If they are i am afraid of the well being of the glass shrimp currently inhabiting the tank.

    How to treat Hexamita

    I am certainly no expert in fish medication, but if memory serves me correctly, white stringy poo = flagellates. Flagellates are i think a bacterial infection in the intestinal tract and the white stringy poo is actually the fishies stomach lining? Best course of action would be to isolate affected fish into a seperate tank, treat with metronidazole soaked into the food, and cross your fingers. Extremely contageous to other fish and important to suck up bottom of tank and white poo's regularly. I often didnt even bother attempting treatment and just dispatched affected fish quickly to stop spreading to others.

    heater for 6ft

    Jager 300w will do the job. I've got a Jager 300w on a 630L aquarium set @ 29deg and it holds it at that higher temp. Wouldn't need it that high for africans. Also assuming that Gladstone's min temps would be a couple of degrees warmer than down here in Brisbane so the difference between room temp and required aquarium temp would be less.
