    WTB: Cyathopharynx Foai

    A new decent sized breeding colony needs to be established before any fry leave town lol @Rastinger62, @JB I saw today that someone has a NEW WC colony of furcifer Ndole bay, recently imported, so things are looking up.. I also know of two colonies of furcifer Ruziba, but they would be very similar to My Resha and I already have heaps of them, lol If anyone wants Resha there is 40-50 fry ready to go within the next Month @hamishh34 I have been stuck in my shed doing water changes for 20 years, its difficult to get out much lol

    Hi @hamishh34, Thanx heaps for your support & interest. I've got some new ideas that I'll write up later this week. In the meantime, I sit on the edge of the Billabong and paddle my toes in it to amuse the goldfish. Yes, it is peaceful especially with a R&C (Bundy) ! (Except for those bl@sted kookaburras ) Cheers, Grover

    If QLDAf does go down life still goes on, you can always get the information on Farce book on how not to keep a healthy Aquarium.

    Water changes

    I have a 100 litre rainwater tank from bunnings in the corner of my fish tanks. I fill that up, let it run with an airbubbler and heater. Once I want to do a water change I drain my tank to the required level that i've marked and then turn the tap on the rainwater tank and it goes into my sump and pumps to the tanks. I also leave it on a drip sometimes as well.

    @trofius I was actually going to type something along those lines... regarding the impossible to tell something labelled C.foai "variant" or C.furcifer "variant" at a small size. @rob-cichlid thanks mate. I've actually got a couple of contacts down there that have their eyes and ears out for me and in Melbourne. I'm liking @Rastinger62 approach of seeing if an importer would import some for us. Fingers crossed. Cheers, Jason

    Foai are not on the allowable import list but Furcifer are.... go figure... Cant imagine any import inspecter would know the difference esp, in stressed fish. I beleive this has probably confused the real id of some fish.

    WTB: Cyathopharynx Foai

    @Rastinger62 Like what I'm hearing about the possible importer I'm not fully around all the logistics behind the new import laws and batch testing of Megalocytivirus. I would have thought as Cyathopharyx furcifer are on the import list it would be possible?! @trofius it wasn't that long ago that Jules got out of fish and sold all her foai. Where did they all end up? Here's a couple of my "better" foai photos with the limited photography skills I have.... Sibwesa, Cape Kabogo and Sumbu. Also had Karilani, Mbita, Moliro and Kapamba (I believe the ones James and I purchased together were the only colony in Aus. They were a redish burgandy colour and very impressive!) Makes me sad everytime I look at these photos and compare how easy it was to order stuff then compared to now. As I've said before I'm really left amazed that in a few short years after selling all mine they just seem to be near impossible to find in any decent numbers. Cheers, Jason

    I think as so many rooms are inactive, just go back to the start. 1 chat room for all questions and 1 trade room, and archive all other rooms into an archive room

    if QLD af goes down, maybe pass it to me so that I can help to host for free for a commitment, maybe locked in 3 years. Not interested in mod or managing or anything, just help hosting or upgrade to aws host, etc as it is within my ability. More than that, someone need to run it or make it free for all.

    Thanks Nigel for ruining the biggest fish forum in oz. people like you made me and a lot of other breeders get out of fish as it was so competitive and lost the meaning of ‘hobby’. After a few years of a break I’m back enjoying the hobby again. So sad to see the inactive site this now is.

    I am blown away with your dedication each time I open this topic. You are persistent! Do you have any suspicions as to why they are not breeding? Possibly goldfish being vacuums and sucking up any breeding attempt? Just seems strange that you haven't had more success throughout this process and boy do you deserve it! Any possible changes/techniques you'll try next in order to get them going? Either way, your pool is being utilised much more than most and you have a peaceful place to relax.

    Since I have seen a few posts lately with people looking for a few bits and bobs. I thought Id see if anyone has recently seen a species I used to work. As usual, you regret moving something on that you don't see again. Pseudotropheus flavus. This isnt a WTB ad. I had a small colony maybe 8 years ago from Jonas and the males were crackers. The barring was perfect on most and the yellow and black colouration was vibrant. I saw a few males a couple of years ago that didnt match that quality and that was the last time Ive seen them advertised. Is anyone still working with these? Or have they seen any floating about? Well hopefully swimming, not floating.

    Apistogramma cacatuoides

    Hey fishy friends, We've got a few cacatuoides fry about 2 months old, still a little young to identify. However just sharing to see if there are any peeps interested in getting some on here when that time does come for them to be ready to be re-homed. Will offer QLDAF friends benefit prices too! Going to take some photos with my phone once the lights turn on later today! Cheers Jonce!

    thanks mate this is actually our little Quarantine tank for our corals, the little snowflake was an impulse buy, have always wanted one lol We have a special little tank for him coming soon, and then when he is around 30-40cm he will go into our huge predatory tank to live out his days

    The Chilly Winds of Winter in Brisvegas... With the daytime temperature rapidly plummeting and the odd sighting of Ugg boots there can only be one conclusion... Brrrr ! Winter! This week's exercise for the Billabong was the ceremonial "Installing of the Blue Blanket". A time-honoured event for the last few years. You know how it goes, so here are the photos - 1) Billabong in its natural state 2) Installing the rope at one end (held in place by the star-picket embedded 5ft into the ground) 3) At the other end, using "truckie hitches" to tension the rope across 9m of pool (being a Boy Scout many years ago helped at this point) 4) Hooray! Grover remembered to install the floating boxes at this point (ex-fish boxes kindly donated by his LFS - Aquarama, Stafford) 5) Retrieving the polystyrene pallets from inside the carport roof. 6) Positioning the pallets carefully on the ropes (Grover tossed them from the side then poked them into place with a barge-pole) 7) And then with assistance from the house-mate, unfurled the blue cover whilst leaving a gap for the Elephant Ears at the shallow end. There's just one tiny gap to allow Grover to feed the GPGs their vegies, pellets, and lettuce. And the temperature in the Billabong? A sunny 25degC ! Cheers, Grover
