  1. Hi Stu and welcome lots of good stuff on here
  2. Welcome to the forum, lots of people keep natives on here
  3. welcome to the forum, should contact pandapete on here he breeds whiptails
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. @GotCrabs How is your shoulder and ribs now?
  11. 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.
  12. Plants have taken off good on you. Sorry for your loss of shrimp.
  13. Looks more like Christmas or peacock moss java moss is usually more stringy, having said that I am not an expert on moss someone on here will be better qualified to tell you.
  14. Good to hear Springwood is much better for us coasters
  15. Welcome to the Forum. My tall tank (58 x 35 x 72 tall has bristlies, royal whiptails and cardinals, the cardinals are so that there are mid water fish, and a couple of apple snails, it has built in lights but I may add some leds as it is deep and plants are slow to grow. Our sponsors have leds at a reasonable price, usually get mine from A. O. A. at browns plains.
  16. Hi and welcome to the forum lots of help and sugestions on here
  17. should ask the person who you are getting it from how he/she moved it when they got it. You may have to google removalists if no other way, will need to tell them it is HEAVY!!!!
  18. you can hire flat bed trollies with scissor lift need to phone hire companies to ask what they have got. If enough people you could also use slings. Hire company may also have flat bed truck you could hire.
