  1. What's the best way to clean pipes with? I'm thinking rig an end of a bottle brush cleaner to a long piece of wire? Does anyone use 100% sodium percarbonate to maybe soak them for a bit too? Tips please 😊 Cheers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah he stalks me all day and splashes about when I go past him! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Haha ok good to know thanks rhysl, he had 5 cubes of frozen mealworms today all up. We switch between frozen and live food. What did you feed yours rhysl? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. How much on average would a large Oscar eat? I'm feeding Fred every day but he is constantly acting really hungry, and goes nuts whenever anyone goes near the tank wanting to be fed... I just gave him 3 cubes and still hungry, worried I'm not feeding him enough now (he has only just started doing this) but don't want to over feed either. Any tips? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks, yeah will be using ply under the steel support frame. Will post updates and pics as we go. Not as worried now that I realise the whole structure underneath the house is steel. I knew our stumps were steel but thought the joists were wood but glad they are steel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I should say floor joists are 20 inches apart, stumps and joists are all steel the tank will span out over about 4-5 joists. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Everything is steel, support beams 20inches apart so I'm confidant with a steel base built and marine ply on the bottom to distribute the weight evenly it should be right, it will sit across about 5 of the steel house beams, along an external wall. Getting the steel in a couple of weeks, already have a sheet of marine ply 😊 Anyone know a good place in Toowoomba to get a hood made at a reasonable price please pm me. Cheers.

  8. Scored this and a eheim pro canister for $100 😄 can't wait to get it going. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok thanks JayPee, we will probably still put a frame around the bottom just to be sure. Need a hood made too :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Miscounted, has 8 legs... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah I'll be adding rocks and an old tree stump. It will only have 1 oscar so no plants cause it's a waste of time lol he just shreds them to pieces. Think we will put a steel frame for the bottom but the OH has a welder and can make it but thanks for the lead Brenton  I'm still going to be so nervous filling it lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Wondering if we will need to put support beams along the bottom of our 6x2x2, which has 6 legs on the stand, to even out the weight as our house is on stumps. Scared it will break through our floor. I estimate our tank will weigh at least 600 kg once filled. Any thoughts/tips? Also going to enclose the area underneath, will share progress pics as we go.

  13. I like the idea of the sump but another reason I'm not using one is I don't have room underneath. What canister were you using? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Still wondering if there is anyone on here who is currently running a marine tank using eheim pro canister? :-) would love to hear your experiences. Cheers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ok I'll just try to go with the easiest to keep to begin with. I realise I will be limited on numbers due to tank size and don't want to risk over crowding. I'll just start with the clown fish and then slowly add to it :-) I do like the banner fish so I'll get one of those instead of the moorish then and maybe just one tang then and leave it at that. Is it better to get coral first then the fish or vice versa? Cheers Donny. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
