  4. Where to repashy on gold coast

    Thanks, we are running really short at the moment and have ordered it and just awaiting more stock.
  5. So does that mean tomorrow? If it is later I will just need to let the staff know as I head up to MACA on Wednesday.
  6. Why a marine Nano

    How long have you had that running Steve?
  7. Is it possible to have an ethical hobby?

    The hobby is here and it would be better to look at ways to make the hobby more ethical - which is generally through education. Sadly the more ethical ways of producing are not as cost effective. Aquacultured corals generally smaller and cost 30-40% more, so people generally just take the cheaper option. Some fish should require a licence to keep - I mean fish that we commonly see released into our waterways. Oscar owners please do not PM me but to own a Oscar I would like to see better requirements - ie that they can show they have a suitable tank.

  9. Marine aquariums are generally the next level when it comes to keeping aquatic life. The colours, the beauty and the variety attracts a lot of people but the general concern it is too hard and what do you need and what does it do. With the Beginners day we held with MAFA there was a hand out which covered everything you need to know and the topics are shown below the link. We have all these sheets now available to view on our website. Here is the link for you to go. http://www.thetechden.com.au/Starting_a_Home_Marine_Aquarium_s/2419.htm ACCLIMATION / INTRODUCTION ATO Automatic Top Offs Chillers - Coolers DOSING UNITS - DOSING PUMPS DOSING WHAT AMOUNTS FEEDING MARINE LIGHTING NITROGEN CYCLE Planning a Marine Tank PROTEIN SKIMMERS QUARANTINE TANK REEF AQUARIUM PARAMETERS SELECTING LIVESTOCK Sump and Refugiums WATER MOVEMENT - Wavemakers WATER TESTING

  14. Ever wanted to have Marine but did not know where to start - what you have to do and is it confusing?. Now is a chance to check it out and see if Marine is for you. On Sunday from 2pm till 6pm we will be having a learning day and what that is explaining the basics. What's a skimmer, how does it work how to maintain it. It is being done in conjunction with our friends from MAFA (Marine Aquarium Fanatics Australia). There will also be giveaways on the day. The day is ideally suited for those that have just started Marine, wanting to cross from freshwater to salt or just a general wanting to get into marine. It will cover - Planning a marine tank, Water movement, Cycling, Dosing, Skimmer, Quarantine, Selecting Livestock, Lighting, Sump and Fuge, Dosing, Chillers, Testing Feeding and more...........there will also be handouts to help and take home.
