  1. I remember seeing this one when it was first listed... And the price it came down to. Good buy mate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. There's a guy on the sunshine coast who breeds them. I've forgotten his name, but Shane at Caloundra Garden and Pet knows the guy. Give them a call and I'm sure he'll help out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Oh wow, those look pretty nice - what's their behaviour like?
  4. Thanks mate I'll check it out. At this stage I haven't seen much that grabs me, but I've got a local place that does more natives, so I'll go have a look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I'm actually after something a bit more dramatic looking. I'm just winding down a discus, cory, ram and bristlenose tank. I'm keen to do something that has slightly bigger fish, hardier than discus and more dramatic looking in general. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks mate, really appreciate that - you still out at the same place at the back of Caloundra? I'll give you a shout when I have a chance to get out there.
  7. These guys? http://s905.photobucket.com/user/tony2323able_2007/media/DSC_2091.jpg.html Wow - like that a lot.
  8. I think you're right about the Green Texas. As stunning as it is, and as puppy-like as it behaves right now, I don't think it'll make for a peaceful tank. I'm not a huge fan of 'blotchy' or wildly multi-coloured peacocks - I'm a designer, so that'd just drive me f**king nuts. While I don't like Silver Dollars, the schooling fish is a nice idea - I've heard that the Acei school - would they go OK with something like the Labidochromis (particularly Hongis) mentioned by Wogboy?
  9. I agree - I'd be happy to avoid for that reason, except I'm after a fairly easy intro to Africans! That said - Hongis fall into the Labidochromis genus, right? Those guys are stunning.
  10. My new tank is currently three weeks into cycling, and I'm trying to decide what's going into it. 430 lies with two Eheim filters on it - a 2228 and 2215. I'm getting out of discus because I just don't have the time to look after them as they require - so I'm looking for something hardier and more fun. I was leaning towards an African tank - I like the idea if demasonis and electric yellows, keeping it to just two or three species. But then I came across a beautiful green texas locally - about 20cm or so and just a great personality. If I went with the green texas, what could I put in with him that wouldn't get destroyed? If I go Africans, what can I do to keep it simple and reduce aggression ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks, I'll check it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Typically when this topic comes up some great tank builders are mentioned - not many close to me. I'm currently looking at aquatic geometry in Caboolture, they come recommended by a mate at a LFS. Anyone know of them? Or another reputable sunshine coast or north side builder?

  14. I've used relatively cheap lamb heart for my discus and they love it. It's a bugger to trim all the gristle off tho, so I may give kangaroo a go next time! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
