  1. I've had 2 more spawns since my original post. Like clockwork. They lay eggs, 2 days later they eat the eggs, next day I clean the tank and the day after they've laid again. Ph has been a stable 6.5 for weeks now. Should i drop it lower? I've noticed roughly 1 quarter of the eggs go white after the first day and maybe half go white by the time they all get eaten on day 2. They seem a bit more aggressive to each other this time around.
  2. Woohoo. I was planning on coming in and buying some stuff tomorrow anyway. What a bonus!
  3. Well they just laid eggs again. This time I've left a little bit of light on them at night. I'll look into the 'extreme egg yolk challenge' but thats sounding pretty full on. This is only their 2nd time having a 'crack' at it in a breeding tank... They would around 18-20 months og age
  4. I've got a pair of discus eating their eggs after 2 days. They have laid 3 times, once in a community tank and twice in a separate breeding tank. I'd like to know what the best course of action is other than just letting nature take its course. I've seen online a lot of people recommend using mesh or chicken wire to protect the eggs or taking out the female on the 2nd day as she's likely to be the one eating the eggs or leaving a light on in the room. Ph is 6.5. Ammonia, nitrite and nitrate are 0. Temp is 29. Any advice is appreciated. Tristan

  8. A mate and I went to 7 different lfs today all over Brisbane funting (fish hunting). Some things were great and some not so much. I saw some amazing discus and driftwood and also some fish that won't see Anzac Day. I know where to buy different fish and dry goods as each store has advantages and disadvantages. Everyones got their favourites but today I spent $150 at a lfs that wasn't top of my list because I stumbled across a great buy. My advice is get out there and look around.Buy the right items from the right stores for the right price. If things are poor quality or overpriced you will be able to get it elsewhere. I agree our southern states have more impressive lfs but ours won't survive if we don't support them.
  9. Tank all painted and looks great. Easier than I thought and used the Easy Surface Prep. Definitely recommend painting. Now it's time to cycle!
  10. Looking at painting the back of my tank - are there benefits to using either blue or black paint? Cheers
  11. Great pictures and beautiful planted tank!
