    8x2x2 fish tank and stand swap

    Hey everyone, I’ve got an 8x2x2 fish tank and stand. The tank isn’t drilled, and is in really good condition. The stand has some trim that goes around the top to hide the bottom of the tank, and one side of the stand is open for if you put it against a wall. It also has some lids but they are thin glass. Measurements of the tank: 2440mm long 610mm wide 610mm high 10mm thick glass. Looking to swap for breeding rack setup preferably 3fts and a sump would be ideal. Located boronia heights,qld. I haven’t put a price on it yet as I don’t know what to value it at and I’m more after swaps. But feel free to pm me a price if you have one in mind. It’s kept under a blanket.

    Hello

    Hi, new member from Brisbane/Ipswich area. Currently have an 8ft all male peacock/hap display tank that I set up 8 months ago. All fish have been purchased locally from shops all over Brisbane with a couple of gumtree exceptions.

    Hello

    Hey mate. I got the tank/hood/stand from aquariumsrus. They don't paint or make cabinets like this, so I got the basic stand and then some MDF from Bunnings and did the doors myself. If you have a chat to them and tell them what you are planning, they actually modify the stand to suit flush panels like this. I ended up painting it myself, just got some 2pac paint from dulux. I couldn't find anywhere that make this style that doesn't cost a fortune (or at all for that matter), so decided to DIY it. If you want to go down that path let me know and I can give you some more info, or any other questions don't hesitate to ask. Cheers

    Don't know if this is 100% correct ..sure generally speaking, you shouldn't mix africans and american cichlids, but I do too and it's fine. I think it's worse when you mix Malawi and Tanganyikan fish because the latter DO need much harder water where as Malawi are fine with your average water ...Lake Malawi water isn't all that hard at all - rocky yes, but not very hard especially compared to Tang.

    Did you cycle the tank first? http://www.theaquariumwiki.com/wiki/The_Nitrogen_Cycle If not then don't add more fish now. I'd get the bigger filter and run both in parallel for a month or more first.

    You'll get repeat questions because you opened two posts with the same questions and poeple may not see both. It is easier for people to follow if you stick to the one topic here:

    if everything is fine, they would not be dying how big is the tank, what are your exact water parameters, what filtration, alittle history on the tank ie, how long running, etc etc, what have you done and what have you checked?
