  1. Nitrate Testing

    There is a BUT. Brisbane water sometimes has Nitrate?
  2. Nitrate Testing

    Ok, so I AM an API fan. I know I know. Insert all the “they suck” comments. BUT, I religiously shake both bottles. Until my arm aches. I recently conducted about 40 tests on my three tanks. NO INCONSISTENT RESULTS. Took some water to my LFS, they used a regent based Nitrate test kit. All three tanks water results were consistent with API results. So what are everyone’s thoughts?

    So they all have their colours back and look great! I placed the caves you gave at either end but one used it, the other found a better cave in my rocks. This displaced my big male Altolamprologus Compressiceps. So he moved to my super large Baler shell. Which is great because that’s where I wanted him! The Hecqui tried to bully the Ikola. But they ignored him so they live in peace now. I feed to tank protein when I drop the Hikari tabs as the Tropheus focus on that. Takes times but I love the hobby so happy to do it. Adds a challenge! My 2 baby Black Calvus think they are Tropheus fry. Weirdos.

    You daughter wants to name another for sure.
  12. Hello everyone, just thought I’d post my pride and joy. Its a 6x2x2, 3 x 406 and an FX6. 2 x Altolamprologus Compressiceps 3 x Altolamprologus Calvus (Black Pearl) 2 x Lepidiolamprologus Hecqui 5 x Neolamprologus Leleupi (Orange pair and 3 yellows. Not breeding don’t worry.) 7 x F1 Tropheus Moorii Ikola (Thanks @mcfry40) 10 x F2 Tropheus Moorii Ikola fry 300 litre weekly water change. Not because I need to but because I enjoy great water quality. Photos to follow this week when the order I placed at www.simplyshells.com.au arrives. Fed NLS cichlid, Fluval green and Hikari algae bits. No feeding issues yet. No Tropheus community aggression issues. Their aggressive nature seems conspecific so far. The Hecqui keep them in check.
