    I have always enjoyed the natural world. As a child I always appreciated natural beauty of a landscape or a sunset, etc. I never ever fell for the lies about evolution and I could see the Creation for what it is - wonderfully and marvellously made for us His children to explore and benefit from. I began collecting rocks, driftwood, animals, taking photos of natural objects , scenery, trees and plants. Always had to go camping and being outdoors. Now I'm into fish very recently. They are fun to look after and interact with. Expensive, but worth it. It starts with one tank, and now two, but I have a third...

  4. A chainsaw party - boys own - why not - if the girls can have their jewelry or lingerie parties - then why not a boys toys party ?
  5. Thanx all... I have a chain saw -Stihl of course - and I love playing with my toy out here in my rural block - so many tree branches, not enough time.
  6. What do Forum members think of the cost and the value of using live bacteria additives like Seachem Stability, API Quickstart, Thrive Aquatics Bacteria Start ?? I have had to recycle a tank or two due to filter accidents; or putting in a new filter to run before removing an older filter for a good clean out and new media refill; anyway I often spend my money on these bacteria additives to "speed up" the recycling process especially if I have fish in the tank - but I don't know if really it makes much difference - still seems to take 3 weeks or so for ammonia readings to come down to zero. Are they worth the money? Do they make a difference to the recycling time period of 3 - 4 weeks?

  10. I wonder if this is what he was talking about - Tiny Red Worms in a Freshwater Aquarium | eHow
  11. An acquaintance involved in the aquaculture industry [fish farming] was telling me about RED WORMS that one can use to keep a tank's gravel substrate clean. Apparently these little creatures burrow into the gravel, etc and eat up all the fish poo and mulm converting it into ammonia and nitrates. Anybody out there know anything about this, and if it is true, where do I get Red Worms from?
  12. I have had this tank for several years. First with Comets (then a heater and my Bristlenoses). Then with tropicals after I killed my Comets... Whilst I have done water changes and glass scrubs and filter replacements; I had never previously done a total cleanout including gravel. This tank was giving me repeating ammonia bursts and bad water parameters, no matter how much I water changed and added Seachem Stability. So in the end I put all the fishies out into the other larger tank (upsetting that community) but they had to go. Then I completely stripped down the "old" tank (my first tank, 2 foot @ 65litre). Cleaned and scrubbed out evetrything from top to bottom. Filters, driftwood, shelters, the gravel. Everything. Put it all back together and will let it run for a month until recycling period is completed. The water is just so clean it looks like glass. I guess I learn things the hard way when it all goes wrong. And then I seek advice from learned others as to what to do.
  13. Right, I have a pair of adult (M + F) common bristlenoses. The male must be about 6cm and the girl about 4.5cm. They have been together for nearly 2 years. I do not see them during the day as the hide in their favourite nesting haunts, but at night they come out to eat their sinking pellets and they do keep the glass clean. They are in an very overstocked tropical tank as the other tank suffered from "old tank syndrome" and needed a total refurbishment. So I will give the goldies a miss (unless I invest in yet another tank) and return my B/Ns back to their tank along with some 14 neon tetras (which I will increase to 20). The other tank will be only Gouramies and Corydoras (peppers and albino bronze)... I think I will get another tank for Comets as I am addicted to my hobby and enjoy fishkeeping heaps. You know you're addicted when one cannot say no
  14. OK agreed. Any alternatives on what to keep with Comets? Or maybe nothing and just scape the glass clean...
