    Looked it up on the 27th
  2. Hi to all

    Hi Stu and welcome lots of good stuff on here

  4. Sunscreen

    Bummer, sorry for your loss
  5. Hello

    welcome to the forum, should contact pandapete on here he breeds whiptails
  6. braceless tank bowing

    had same thing happen some years ago, I put a brace across middle, and all ok. If no where to connect brace to could make aluminium brace to clip over outside of glass. from back to front
  7. Canister Filters

    I use 2x 2000lph in 4x2x2 and tank is clean as, do need to clean sponges couple of times week but have quite a lot of fish in tank (very easy to clean, unclip filter canister and wash in tank water, leave power heads running) also have canister otto running on another tank, very old never missed a beat. Got otto internals from A.O.A browns plains, work out about $40 each with forum members discount.
  8. Canister Filters

    Fluval is probably the best but depends on budget, Eheim are also very good, since I had flooded lounge (luckily did not lose any fish) I now use otto internal filters (paranoid). My tank is 4 x 2 x 2 as well.
  9. Welcome to the forum, good layout of tank parameters and pictures of tank, looks good maybe not cycled causing fish loss, could take up to 4-5 weeks to cycle an air stone may help, will add oxygen and break surface allowing exchange of gasses.
  10. You mentioned mesh, should be able to get it from a place that does awnings and shade sails but I would use perspex with holes drilled in it.
  11. Discus

    Got some baby discus on Sunday off of a guy at Regents Park, he has beautiful tanks and fish, he bred the ones I got, he only has small ones but I like to see them grow, if you want I can send you his contact number. He will give you relevant information on keeping discus.

  15. The Return Of: Mr Aqua 12g

    Lost all my red cherries since putting chilli endlers in tank, don`t know if they ate them or because tank got hot around 32c. Went out today and got 3 baby discus, put them in tank with small bristlies so hope they get on ok.
