  1. It can wipe out a single species in a tank , the only way to check for sure is to take a fish to a vet and get it checked , Melanotaenia species are among the most susceptible . bloating and or surface ulcers being among the most common symptoms .
  2. I have a lot of information in my head , but unfortunatelyI have the people skills of a rabid American Pitbull Terrier .
  3. I believe it is Mycobacterium Marinum ( "Fish TB" ) I hope I am aloud to do this , here is a link to a VERY relevant YouTube video about Mycobacteriosis he explains it better than I ever could - Link -
  4. As I have posted here before I have been shutting down and selling almost all of my tanks . My daughter has scored a few ( 18 x 30 inch on 3 tier stands and a 2 tier 3x18x18 ) most of the the rest have been or are being sold . That said I have decided to keep 4 tanks , 2 x 24x18x24 display tanks with triple kessel leds on one and double fluval leds on the other and a 2 tier 4x18x20 setup with fluval leds on one and kessils on the other and grow plants ( guppies or platies or whatever as tank fillers ) that is the limit of what I can take care of . I have been keeping (breeding) fish for over 50 years I just can not keep up with the workload anymore . It has been an interesting journey and I have met a lot of people along the way , I have had a snake bite while catching rainbows , been sliced by glass , spiked by catfish and all sorts but it still has been ( mostly fun ) to those on here , enjoy the voyage it has the potential of being a long and interesting one . The pic below is my last active tank , overgrown and a little neglected but it's all i have up at present.
  5. 4 of the tanks have now been drained and removed - 2 more to go.
  6. For Sale 3 tier breeding rack with 6 36x 15x 18 tanks $250 but you will have to move them yourself as I have health issues ( I am old ) tanks all hold water / still have water at present will finish draining them tomorrow The tanks are heavily choked with dead algae ( due to said health issues ) and will need to be cleaned some more than others . Stand is 50x50mm steel . I will have a second one of these for sale in a few days . I will get some current pictures up tomorrow . PM for contact details if interested
  7. I have always used a "ring" do not know if it is really better , because that is the only way I have done it. It worked so why change .
  8. I have 3 IBC containers ( 1000 litre) available for sale $90 each photo coming soon . PM or post here Pickup is from Redcliffe .
  9. All of the tanks in this ad gone . Still have The open pine stand off the 2ft cube that got broken - for obvious reason , Stand only no tank ! $25 for the stand .
  10. I does seem a waste to throw 4 x 4foot tanks away , but they have to be gone one way or another ! I still have 20+ more tanks to go ! that I am going to have to deal with . Edit Actually it is over 30 !
  11. It says a lot about the hobby and where it is going when you can not even give away 4 foot tanks . it saddens me to see and it will mostly be repeated as I move forward clearing out my tanks and stuff , for me it is unfortunately unavoidable ,My own fault as I hung onto them to long hoping that I could start again , which unfortunately , I can not . any how I got to do what I got to do!
  12. It is very much a shame but It looks like 4 perfectly good 4 x 15 x 18 tanks with lids go to the dump in the morning ( I have no where to store them ) anyway , so be it .
  13. Anybody want the 4 4 footers for free today Sunday August 25th only . PM on here . Must be gone this afternoon ! Must take them in pairs , you do not get to choose which ones , you take the ones given , one from middle tier one from bottom tier , per pickup , I have been caught too m any times .
  14. 2 x 2ft cubes advertised on gumtree for $100 each selling to forum members for $50 each . To get them for $50 you must post on this ad then PM me
  15. I have for sale 4 4 foot tanks , they are advertised on gumtree for $150 but for forum members I will let them go for $50 they are grubby and will need cleaning , Due to health issues I can not help with moving them . Were used for breeding tangs and have sand with Calcium carb added for buffering this is included if you want it . Rack is not included . To get them for $50 you must post on this ad then PM me
