    Massive tank reseal today

    Awhile ago you may remember I moved this awesome tank over to a new position for our Eels, inadvertently I placed in onto a small ridge on the tiles and in my excitement set it up and had it running for a week before one of the front panels decided to let go hahahaha well we have clean floors now anyways Today is the day we pull the panel off and reseal and redo some angles on it monster tank reseal - YouTube

    The Gympie sun is the same so you have to keep an eye on it, we have a large Bismark palm in the front driveway, I have a mate with some machinery that will be coming in a couple of weeks to dig it out and the large rocks around it, then we will dig down about 900 and I will get that ready for our Avocado tree thanks for the kind words, we are just under 2acres which is a nice size without going nuts, plenty of space to play with

    Soon to be FROG POND

    I nearly killed mine when i first got it. From under shade cloth to direct Rockhampton sun had it shell shocked. Didnt think about that once I got it home. But I have found mine has done well in half shade. Hasnt grown much height wise but has become very dense with shoots towards the base. Probably for the best since the fruit set on branches and trunk. Been checking out a few of your youtube vids and your property is looking mint. Nice collection you have. You'll never have to buy fruit again in a few years. How many acres do you have if you dont mind me asking?

    hey mate we havent moved them yet, its been a hectic year and start to the new year, will be sure to video the move hahah sarah and I have a good idea of the stocklist, all will be revealed, I think the tank is being delivered in around 4 to 6 weeks excitement time,

    Haha how'd you go moving the eels? Surely Sarah recorded you trying to wrangle them! Have you figured out your stocklist for the predator? That will be a sick tank when it is up and running to view. I think a freshwater moray or file snake is what I will dip my toes in with first before I look at saltwater. The size and personality of a saltwater moray cant be beaten though.

    Dovii fry

    Hey Jas, yeah it’s definitely been a few years now. I’m doing well thanks mate. Slowly getting a few more tanks for some displays so I’ll be a bit more active lol. Hope you you the fam are doing well. From what I’ve seen lately it’s getting pretty hard to find certain species. The hobby isn’t looking to healthy in the hat respect which is a shame. cheers James

    I agree with you Bill, my biggest hate was the total opposite, people who just showed unannounced at 6-7-8 o'clock at night and expect to see your fish , chew your ears off for an hr or 2 , buy $10 worth of fish and think they've done you a favor, we're my haters, no showers are easy, either move their phone number or email to the junk setting and you won't hear or see them anymore. If John's been in the game for some time , then you'd think he would be used to it by now, and maybe just wanted to vent . if you go through the pages on this forum , he isn't the first to vent and won't be the last, only thing in common with it, is usually on the last couple of posts , there usually quirky little comments to help cheer the person up a bit, because the problem isn't going away any time soon. As Sonofhud said , can someone please give John a hug

    Designing 1000L bristlenose growout

    The simplest filter I've found is to put your pump into a 20L bucket with a short hose on the output. Then bury the pump in 6 or 8mm gravel and drop the bucket into the tank. Essentially a 20L canister. Lift the bucket out to clean. It will take a very long time to clog and have superior mechanical and biological filtration to a sponge block. You should be made aware of the dangers of raising bristlenose (or orher L number species) in plastic. They will graze off micro plastics into their body, especially if the plastic is encouraged to grow algae.

    Hi

    Hi John thank you. I'm aware it'll need a bigger tank. Currently only about 8cms so 2ft is only till it gets bigger. I will most likely get it a 6ft. Cheers

    Saratoga growth rate? and feedng?

    Well just had a failed attempt to add him to the 6ft. The jungle perch tried to beat him up, I gave it 10-15 minutes but he's back in the 5ft now recovering, I'm hoping he's ok. Measured him just before I added him back to the 5ft and he's now 22cm which is great and he's noticeable growing fast now that he's into his food more. Next attempt might be with a divider, or just wait until he's 30cm+, we'll see.

    Mirrorballs

    If got Clowns in there also but don’t think it’s anything to do with them, one female is still holding and other spat them(eggs) out,I’ve been told to strip and tumble but haven’t really looked into it but think I will, thanks for your help

    Mirrorballs

    I would strip and use an egg tumbler. I'm having my own troubles, I have 4M 1F around 12cm and they haven't breed that I have noticed. I'm wondering if the clown loaches or peacocks are interfering with this peaceful species breeding.

    Back to the Bog Bed Filter... You may have noticed a short break for the GPGs over the Christmas period. Grover was otherwise occupied with farm activities at Kangaroo Creek south of Grafton. Luckily, the police let him and The Dog back in at the COVID-19 Border Control near the Cobaki Lakes M1 Pacific Motorway on approach to the Queensland Border! During his absence the sump pump powering the Cetus Sieve swallowed a chunk of plastic from one of the previous Aquael pumps, and ground to a halt. It has now burst back into life after the offending chunk was removed, but Grover has also shot off to his LFS (Bunnings) for a backup Ryobi Sump pump - just in case! Anyway, The Bog Bed Filter looked very mucky, so the Big Blue Barrels have been cleaned. Appearances may be deceptive, because the new water iris plants have doubled or tripled in size, and the 'Edible Pandan' (PS: it's never going in any salad that Grover's housemate may create - you can see below what it grows in!!!) has started to sprout and develop new shoots - Hooray And just to get in early... Happy New Year for 2021 ! The 2020 year will soon be officially Grover & The Dog (Another year of hope for GPG babies has gone bust, but the planning continues to give giant pink gouramis the right conditions for breeding)

    Help please re PH, Hardness, Nitrate

    torf pellets are just pelletised peat moss ,peat is used to help soften and lower ph of water, as well as a spawning matter for some fish.

    Help please re PH, Hardness, Nitrate

    what level is your nitrates at ph 7 that is neutral so alkalinity will be low, you dont want high alkalinity unless your playing around with cichlids,my tap water is ph 7.2 i use rainwater to drop it to below 7 on water changes high nitrates can be caused by over feeding, over stocking,

    Hi All, Ive had my pond running for nearly 2.5yrs using a 9lt bucket modified to be a sand and ceramic ring filter cannister. Did it on the cheap. Last week I noticed the water level was down further that is should have been and found my bucket had started leaking.. it is after all, just a bucket... not a pressure cannister. So i decided to not be soo cheap and buy a proper cannister. So I got one from the big green shed haha Had to do some mods as its above my water level and don't want it to syphon back once the power is switched off. So put the check valve from my bucket to the new one and set up the outlets and the backflush outlet. So I removed the sponges from inside this behemoth and put in my cycled ceramic ring bags. Installed it behind the waterfall... which ive now found is deteriorating... but that's another job for another time haha.. Up and running, water is a bit cloudy as I also topped it up but should clear soon enough. 20201204_120212.mp4
