    billfish got a reaction from mcfry40 in time for a rant cos im pissed off   
    2 or so,months ago i was told about a  guy from Victoria that had l144 short fin bristlenose,apparently he was getting out of the hobby, i was chasing some new blood for my group, 
    the pictures i was sent showed really dark yellow  and was told the sizes and price per 10 fish , plus shipping , any way deal was done, cash sent  was told it would be the following monday after he recieved the payment that fish would be freighted as it was his next day off work
    ,fish arrived on the wednesday morning and the missus put them in the tank til i got home to check them out on the friday once they arrived like a dik i deleted all his account and details off my phone,,,i had the fish, none were doa, they were the last of his fish so i wouldnt need his details again.....so i thought
    well now i was farkin annoyed , most of them werent any darker than some of the light looking coloured albino bristlenose going around they just had blue eyes there was a bout 5 or 6 that can be used as breeders by myself
    some werent even the size stated
    plenty of males all around 5 cm and maybe a bit more,,,,,,female numbers were extremely low
    now im in a dilemma 
    i dont want to give the fish a dose of clove oil , theyre not deformed or anything, but in good concience how do i sell these on to other people knowing  that im not happy with the quality  and people may want to breed some, maybe just sell them as individuals  , im at a loss, ive given some males to a friend who i know isnt interested in breeding fish
    but i realistically would like to reclaim some of the cash, i know im going to be out for the freight cost 
    this clown went by the name of Riccard, now his mobile goes straight to message bank ,
    have since found out it happened to another person about a year ago, same name, same location, just different mobile number....im thinkin he just gets a new pre payed sim card after doing some dodgy dealings

    @JByeh , ive always worked on the theory your reputation is only as good as your last deal, so i try to do decent deals and not rip any one off,,,a lot of times to my own detriment and have probably ripped myself off a couple of times

    What Grover Really Wanted George to Look Like...
    These 4 photos show what the Giant Pink Gourami 'whale-watching' experience is all about. Grover wants to know if anyone else has the same problems in seeing the fish that they carefully look after and feed, but never seem to see. 




    Ha! Blowing bubbles is a GPG party trick!

    Angels in general are cranky bastards disguised with a nice name and form.  Never had Altums - on the one day list.  Problem is the one days are getting less while the fish to keep one day list is growing.

    Hey Winston you should check out a mob called floatpac
    They have a product called fishpac and its used to transport live fish overseas and  nationally, ive seen it used with fingerlings by memory it keeps up to 500 kglive fish for about 24or 25 hrs uses pressurised oxygen and diffusers in the chest/crate/esky thing
    Dont know if you can hire the boxes, gotta be easier than a pool in the back of a truck


  23. Thanks
    billfish got a reaction from johnbetta in Just inherited a large empty tank!   
    I m not a fan of hang on filters because
      if you have fish that jump you will definately come home to a crispy critter on your lounge room foor as you cant put a lid on the tank where the filter hangs or a hood to hide the light 
    I would be more inclined to either go a canister of an internal power filter if you must have a power driven filter
    As far as silicon goes, make sure you use aquarium safe silicon  bunnings sells it
    And dont use any chemicals to clean the old silicone off just a scraper ,. I let tanks sit for 3 days before water testing them just so you know if theres any leaks before putting all the gear in the tank and filling it only to have a slow leak inside the house
