  1. Thinking of selling my colony of melanotaenia duboulayi (about 12-14 Fish). Have bred multiple times. Nice and healthy fish about 6-10 cm Long. Looking for $100 or swap for m boesemani.

    How many are you after? I've got about 30. Willing to sell about 10-20. Location Cooroy
  4. For this size tank Id go with 2 pairs of kribensis max. If you want to keep the corys, add a few more - they should be kept in groups of 5 or more. Make sure you have enough hiding spots and also visual barriers so they can sort out their territory. Danios or tetras - don't mix them. Danios are way more active than tetras. You can also stock up - 20 - 30 danios or tetras. Or get 2-3 groups of different tetra species (minimum 6-10 fish per group). Clown loaches should be fine with all the above. But don't expect many kribensis fry when you have loaches in your tank.

    G'day from Pomona QLD

    Hi and welcome. Nice tank. I’m just around the corner - Lake MacDonald.
  6. How about an all natural way to attack snails? Get some tiger or pakistani loaches. Once they're settled in, don't feed your fish for 4-5 days. When the loaches are hungry they start eating snails. Used to work for me ....

    Nice fish , mate. but I think these are Kongo tetras, not rummy nose tetras. I like your geos, just beautiful fish.
  8. Thanks, raycam01. I know there are many options, just wanted to see what the forum brings up. Maybe I’m going for a Cory tank, or a few golden panchax. Got nice Shelly tank already. Still not decided yet. But ideas coming in now ....
  9. Thanks Cam07, but I'll stick with freshwater.
  10. Thanks QldMick. This could be an option.
  11. I’ve just got a freebie tank, size L120xW45xH20cm, about 100L. This is a real shallow tank and a challenge - what fish would be suitable. Looking for either minimum sand or bare glass bottom. Open for suggestions and inspiration. cheers, Tom

    Stocking experiment

    If your pond is next to the neighbour's fence, make they don't spray any nasty stuff (roundup...) near the pond. Could kill the lot in a few hours. Apart from that pond looks great. The tropicals will suffer when the temps drop below 18 for more tha a couple of days.
