    Billabong "Still Water Rescue" Craft You've seen them on the news.... SES Flood and Swift Water Rescue Team Volunteers admiring the raging waters of the Billabong during extreme flood times... Now thrill with admiration for the new Billabong Still Water Rescue Craft (BSWRC) ! It's mounted on the back fence ready to launch into the Billabong and rescue fool-hardy fishermen trying to snaffle the GPGs. (Not to mention anyone e.g. Bill Fishy) Grover

    Auto Siphons

    Here is a photo of an auto siphon to create a flushing filter. This is an overhead filter using a 200L barrel but it could be in a sump and doesn't need to be as big. The inside pipes before media is added - very simple. Water comes in through the 90mm pipe at top. The water level rises and falls inside the filter to create a wave tank. The media used can be anything that doesn't float. The photo below is rapid seeding of hydroton clay balls. No fish, just a heap of ammonia. If you want to boost other (hetrotrophic) microbes for bio film production you can add sugar as well. Power head circulating flow through an aged sponge filter. This is the end result below. As I didn't want to waste the energy of pumped water up to the barrel, I decided to add a moving bed bedside the flushing barrel as well. A moving bed of K1 is a bio film filter. Often confused with a fluidised bed filter. Happy to asnswer any questions but please google first as there is plenty of better explanations online elsewhere. Simplistically, having the media circulate to the surface allows fish waste and oxygen to the bacterial colonies. There is 16500 LPH of pumped water flowing through the moving bed barrel so the air pump is not necessary but it's a good safeguard against power failure if your air pump is backed up. This is energy wasteful so I was going to replace this with a normally closed solenoid tap to drain out. During a power outage the solenoid fails open so all the water drains out. However after some thought, I decided to drill a permanent 4mm hole. When the pump runs, there is plenty of water. If the power fails, the barrel will slowly drain allowing air to get in. No moving parts to fail. Saved $12 on a solenid tap. I have removed the air pump now. After the moving bed, the water gravity drains into the flushing filter. The flushing filter will re-oxygenate the water and provide additonal bio and mechanical filtration. Instead of having the media move (like a moving bed filter) the water level rises and falls so oxygen and fish waste are brought to the media in a different way. Photo of inside the moving bed filter below. The thinner pipe on right (40mm) is incoming pumped water which goes to the bottom of barrel and points back up to stir. The left thick pipe is 90mm stormwater as an overflow drain. It has lots of slits to stop K1 escaping and a T at top to let air out.

    Busy Saturday... If you are following Grover on Instagram, then you've seen some of today's excitement already ! INSTAGRAM: giantpinkgourami The blue cover has come off. Although the GPGs weren't too pleased and they all took off in the other direction! But "Knobbly Headed One" who looks very much a male of the gourami species, chased them away again from the Elephant Ear island, so Grover rummaged around in the back shed to find these. And of course they required a degree of fixing to ensure the ceramic sinkers underneath didn't fall off. This was accomplished with new UV resistant Zip ties. In addition there was a trip to one of Grover's more esoteric LFS - Whitworth's Marine! This was to buy 'Motor Safety Cables', aka coated stainless steel rope with a loop and a spring-link end. These usually stop your tinnie's outboard from plunging 30m straight down when you are tinkering with the bits holding it to the stern of your boat. But in the case of the Billabong, they are used to keep the islands in place and also sit things (like these baskets) on the side ledge without losing them 3m down! As a bonus find, the 2nd island appeared from under the blue cover. Sadly all the plants look somewhat spindly and etiolated. With a bit of Qld sun, they should spring back to life. Now is the time to float the 3rd island back into the water - possibly some waterlilies might survive so they will be given a test-run. Lastly, another trip to a different LFS (Bunnings) for a 350W sump pump as the Aquael pump finally ground to a halt and threw an electrical hissy fit and tripped the circuit breaker. Bunnings Newstead has moved - just lucky it was visible from the Whitworth's store. This afternoon's effort was digging the old strainer/mesh out of the scoria, building a new one from a spare laundry basket, and then carefully (!@%!<{!^=^!!%&*@) fitting the new one in place, and piling the scoria back around it. Done! (Oh... and replacing one of the UV bulbs in the Blagdon UVs - only $65 ea ) And tonight? Tonight Grover leans on the pool fence and watches GPGs lazily cruise around the Billabong in the moonlight Alright... so it's not moonlight, just your standard pool floodlight, but we are trying to set a mood here thanx! Grover (Tomorrow the weekend will be back to normal - giving the matala sheets in the 'BBB' {Big Blue Barrels} their fortnightly clean & rinse) (Breaking News: "G for George" the Grey Giant Gourami {aka GGG} has been seen and confirmed as alive & kicking - we are still waiting for photographic proof. He is the 'Loch Ness Monster' of the Billabong)

    heater time!

    Most heat is lost through the top of the tank so make sure you have full cover lids. One of my sheds is not room heated so I put sheets of 15mm polystyrene on top of the glass lids and throw a plastic sheet over the whole rack. I see lots of condensation and the air feels warm underneath so I am sure it works. At least that's what I tell myself. I get scary power bills. You can use a light beam thermometer gun if you want to find heat leakages on tanks or fish rooms. Good for annoying the neighbours cats too.

    Above and Beyond

    @jc12 I’ve recently sustained an injury which has rendered me unable to drive for 3 months. I recently got in touch with JC and enquired about his Green Laser Cory’s which led me purchase 6 (terrific quality) fish. Given my inability to drive, I rely heavily on my wife and therefore pickup was organised to fit in with her schedule over a weekend. Following our messaging JC kindly offered to drop the fish off on his way home from work which is greatly appreciated and goes above and beyond a nice gesture. It’s great to see some lovely people in the hobby and on this website, who go out of their way to help another person! Thanks again JC the fish have settled in well, I highly recommend the quality of fish. I will stay in touch and be sure to ask you alot of questions! Thanks Again, Chris

    Almost Full Moon for a GFG... And "G For George" finally comes out to play - Hooray! Grover has figured that he has 18 (or 19) GPGs, and 1 (one) special GFG - "G For George" Grover also discovers why George is so elusive. Whilst leaping around the Billabong edges with camera in one hand, and torch in the other, it was discovered that George (otherwise herein also known as "GFG") likes to hide behind the pool ladder steps! With his colour, he's a perfect match for the green/grey sidewalls of the pool and, Who looks behind pool ladder steps anyway? Here are the best photos from tonight's montage. His head has a small lump and is not really white - the camera flash has washed out most of his grey head. This one's out of focus (he was way too close to the camera!), but shows his 5 - 6 cm wide head Now Grover can go back to worrying about the GPGs: feeding, plumbing, and encouraging any and all possible breeding activities. One of the Elephant Ears was sacrificed this morning. Sliced up and the leaves chopped off and the remains sprinkled in the Billabong to provide nesting materials. Cheers, Grover ( )

    Hello from a new member

    Hello all, names Aaron. Been keeping fish for over 15 years though it has turned into a more serious hobby in the past few years. Cherry shrimp, Snails, Bristlenose plecos and live bearing fish are what im currently keeping and have so many cherry shrimp and bristlenose thanks to the insane breeding speed. I've added a photo of my longfin x common bristlenose baby catching a ride on a Rabbit snail.. enjoy!

    Confused

    Hi @Tegan11 First thing is, How big is the tank? how many fish are in the tank ? What is the filtration used on the tank ? What is your water change schedule ? when you do a water change how do you treat your new water before adding to the tank ? How do you clean the filtration and how often Hole in the head is usually caused by poor water conditions so something is very wrong in your balance of your set up right now (actually most diseases are) Best thing to do while answering these questions in probably a 30% water change every day (make sure you treat the new water before adding, I use Seacham Prime, but you need to remove the chlorine before you add the new water ) , don't mess with PH or additives, stable PH is more important than trying to get the perfect PH so whatever your town water is just leave the PH as is Answer the questions above and hopefully we can help further Fish keeping can be tricky at times but we are here to help Cheers

    Hello All. Great to meet you.

    Hi, My name is Peter. I'm looking to start a new chapter in Aquarium Keeping. Been doing a lot of research and have discovered lots of very informative YouTubes although everything I've watched is based on the U.S. market. Looking to get more info on our local suppliers plus tips and tricks. Ultimately, I'm looking to set up a planted tropical Aquarium of around 4" x 2" x 2" to feature in our entry. Will be wanting advice to schooling community fish ( small ) and maybe if practical, an Angel to draw peoples attention. I was an Admin of a dog forum a number of years ago, Also a registered breeder of Japanese Spitz ( Dogs Qld ) ( ANKC ) but now no longer involved in breeding due to my health and the very long hours needed to look after puppies during their first weeks of life. This is a time of my life I treasure as nothing compares to the joys of watching pups grow from birth to the time they leave for their new lives. It was also the saddest time when the time came for the pups to leave. Thankfully, I still have owners who still keep in touch and I can say for certain, a pup never forgets its breeder. Look forward to reading the boards. Cheers!

    L046 eggs (very small batches)

    There is a big difference between over feeding and increased feeding. Your tank stability shouldn't change with heavy feeding but your maintenance probably will. Live black worm might be an option depending on your substrate. Keeping a smaller tank volume is a lot more effort than a bigger tank volume in my experience. Does the female lay more eggs at breeding? Perhaps it's a problem of fertility? or a problem of incubation? Or perhaps just enjoy 2 or 3 babies per batch? Successful fish keeping is mostly problem solving but perseverence helps

    @billfish For smaller plants/moss I use an aquarium safe superglue gel, one that has an active constituent of Cyanoacrylate. It basically becomes inert when moist or wet on the wood/rock which does a good job attaching the plant. Also make sure it’s a superglue gel, I recently purchased some from Bunnings.For larger plants I use fishing line and remove once attached. The above options have worked for me. Cheers Chris

    Continuing the plant theme... Yesterday Grover rescued some tiny plantlets from the flower stalks of his Giant Amazon Sword plants. They are now resident in the Bog Bed Filter and look reasonably happy. As they are semi-emergent plants that can grow under and above the water line they should do OK.

    Road Trip Anyone?

    Some freshwater fish around 1.2m long (30kg) for future broodstock hopefully. I usually use strong 250L bags (just like goldfish) but the travel time on this trip is too long. So hiring a closed truck and fitting it out with a 2500L pond, bio filters, oxygen tank and pre-arranging strategic emergency water change locations on the way up. Hopefully I won't need to use them. Controlling ammonia will be the key. I will rig up CCTV cameras so I can continously monitor them. Any QLDAF members near Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton or Bundaberg ?

    Technical Stuff… Thanx @aquaholic99 – your “brief posts” pack more info than my rambling photo essays Q1) Biological filtration! I think I have the mechanical filtration covered with the Big Blue Barrels and the Cetus Sieve, so based on the fact that I am throwing vast amounts of vegetarian food into the Billabong, I’d have to lean toward biological and nitrate removal. Q2) 2ndy objectives? Just a few cherry tomato bushes – these have been self-seeding and sprouting near the BBBs for years now. Q3) Bypassing during Winter? Probably not – I’ll buy more solar panels if needed. After in-depth reading of your notes and some aquaponic websites, I think it would be best to “flood & drain” multiple times during the day. When the bed was built, I had them install a 90mm hole (in the base), surrounded by a 160mm ring. In the photo below, the 90mm hole has a vertical piece about 4cm high (showing some blue plumbers tape wrapped around it). This piece of pipe has some weep holes in it because I didn’t want water standing in the bed and providing a breeding ground for mozzies. The 90mm hole connects to 90mm pipe that runs straight back into the Billabong. Outside of that is the 160mm ring which is about 2cm high. I originally thought to use a piece of 160mm pipe with slots cut in it to act as a final filter to stop the scoria heading back to the Billabong. The doubled-up laundry basket is doing a good job so far of holding back the scoria. Total depth of the scoria is 22cm (I really thought it was deeper than that!). And currently there is no fail-safe emergency overflow back to the pool. Yes, Grover realises that this is a “bad” idea, and that the Bog Bed Filter could end up looking like this… The emergency overflow will be installed ASAP ! What size is the pump/flow rate? The Ryobi Sump Pump powering the Cetus Sieve is a 750W one capable of 17,000litre/hour – I appreciate this may be ‘power overkill’, but the excitable GPGs make a very big mess of Elephant Ear and Iris plants when they get going. And the sludge continues to be sucked out and separated, so I'll leave it be for the moment. The Aquael Pump is a large one, so let's be generous and say it’s 4,000litre/hour. It does have a variable control, so it can be dialled down or up as required. So, in summary, Grover considers that going straight to cyclic "flood & drain" is his best option. Bell siphon or auto "U" Siphon ? Cheers, Grover ( able to leap tall technical explanations in a single logical bound ! )

    My Aquarium build update

    1. You'll need at least 500W of heating, I would get 2 heaters, of 250W each. Heaters are cheap, and this setup is much safer, if one heater breaks. Either in the "on" or the "off" position. 2. Depends more on the fish you want to keep. Based on what you've said about the fish, UV is not at all necessary. 3. Any canister filter with at least 1400, 1500 lph flow rate should do, in addition to your HOB. Note that the canister filters are a much bigger pain in the a*s to clean, but you only need to clean them much less often than HOB. Cleaning my canister filters is my least favourite aspect of fishkeeping, not for the sludge and muck I find, but the business of opening and closing the canisters without leaks. I've got both AquaOne and Fluval canister filters, and one brand is just SOOO much easier to maintain...

    Gold Apistogramma Macmasteri

    Yeah I flicked them a message and he said to move over to the FB page as that will usually tell me when they come in next before the website. As I imagine its a little more difficult to update a website than post on FB. Sounds like hes good to deal with. I do like stores that will show you the fish before they're shipped, its always makes me nervous wondering what quality I will be receiving. The red backs stood out to me as well, cant blame you for picking them out. I dont usually like the look of Agassizzi but those ones were nice. They should thrive with all that live food you have ready for them. I was hoping to feed macmasteri a decent supply of cherry shrimp to see if that acts as a more natural colour enhancer. Like feeding carrots to a canary the red lizards are cool, their reds really help brighten any tank. Propbably helps the apistos explore the tank more as well if you have some other fish. Are your other apistos quite shy? Its not just Aus that theyre the same. The states and Europe also have this problem. Veijita is quite rare in all countries with very few pairs collected from discussions with some apisto guys. They said no veijita have ever been here. As they look quite similar its just a way for stores/breeders to sell the same fish as two species. Macmasteri 'gold' is often sold as veijita 'gold' in America as well which triggers a few of the die hards haha. So for the veijita is just a lack of imports as they are quite rare all over the world and hard to capture in the wild so therefore theres extremely limited stock in the global hobby. But agree with you on hybrids/breeding poor quality animals thus creating schools of poor quality fry to be distributed into the trade. I used to keep ps flavus and had to move on my colony, a few years later I have looked for them and not seen any nice yellow and dark barred animals since. Same with Afra Hara, was offered a decent group 10 years ago and have kicked myself ever since for saying no. Americans like you mentioned are a whole other story. I know of a few red tiger motas in Aus and for some reason someone was breeding red tiger mota x dovii and those hybrids have been popping up and people are thinking they own motas now. Same with multifasciatus x dovii and a recent hobbyist breeding jags x dovii. These animals are being distributed by petshops regularly and it wont be long until it becomes quite difficult to locate the pure higher quality animals. Now not every hobbyist should be experted to be a guru or try saving a species. But it does disappoint me when i see a few of the so called big breeders breeding poor quality animals and selling their fry. One pair of festae being bred currently is potentially one of the worst examples of the fish and now their babies will be everywhere haha. To leave it all on a good note, trimacs are back! Wow that was a good way to easily be sidetracked. I have a feeling we could rant on this topic for a while over some beers

    Hi @aquaholic99 Appreciate your thoughts & experience With a little luck the Brisbane minimum temperature should be on its way back up. I'll try setting the heat pump for 23/24 and monitor the behaviour of the GPGs.

    Things are slowly starting to come in however it is hard to like request specific species. It’s more a what comes in comes in as well as the contacts you have. Salvini quality in Australia is very poor and many have deformed mouthes. They are a species if new blood comes into the country I will get a group and look to spawn them as they are striking and gorgeous. As for festae, there are some good quality specimens around they are just few and far in between and when people have them they are generally not willing to part with them. Thank you mate, it is nice to have wild caught fish given where we live. I love my wild discus very much even though they are allowed to be imported. I hope to have some F1 chocolates available soon. What I’m interested to see is how they look when older as each catch local for the species looks very different to another and for the Rio Ucayali I am unable to find any photos of specimens from there.

    Hi @billfish No, no baby plecostomus... Even though they had terracotta pipes and huge plastic pipes as well. Here they are - out of the Billabong temporarily while I vacuumed up grunge and muck from the bottom of the pool. The pipes are approx. 30cm diameter and maybe 1.5m long, and attached to floating chains which then attach to the floating ducks! Cheers, Grover

    Hi @Pepperbris Long time, no see ! Great island idea :-) looks like a sheet of wall insulation or a cold-room wall with holes drilled in it. I do admit that the GPG islands are starting to look a little battered - having been turned-turtle a number of times by the Elephant Ears graowing too large and capsizing the whole thing. The islands will have to wait in line (with appropriate "social distancing") as I have a burst of enthusiasm for another project... see below

    Aquarium salt Vs other salts

    For artemia, any salt will do but and for most fish keepers even a terrible hatch rate is sufficient. However to get the optimal hatch rate, the best conditions will depend on the strain of artemia. Temp, light & pH being more important than salinity. I use a weak seawater salinity as this re-hydrates the cyst faster so artemia hatches faster so artemia spend less time struggling to get out and have more nutrition (egg reserves) and are smaller. For bigger fish fry like cichlids, the artemia size or strain won't matter. Growing artemia is a waste of time IMO as larger shrimp are mostly water unless you are growing to breed. I also decapsulate the cysts so I can feed the unhatched cysts too. If breeding, I recommend using a circular tank with very slow circulation and a flat baffle in center so they don't pile up im middle and crush. Childs shallow wading pool is perfect. The colonies will crash so set up two. Feeding the artemia consistently is a tricky art that I find challenging.
