  10. thanks [MENTION=13458]PeterH[/MENTION] i am getting a old 2ft to have as quarantine i started with one tank now it will be four silly me just banged the first lot in the tank after i equalized them with my tank water and no salt in bucket when i caught them rookie mistake . Luckily my threadfinns seem ok i am still bit nervous about them though , rainbowrunner on his utube vid says 5g/ lt another fella said 2g per lt . thanks for the help . happy easter
  11. bit like aquariums u can read all the facts but what u do when u get it home is entirely up to you . yes it says to test case in water before putting ur phone in to find if there is a fault common sense really, and i guess they are covering themselves by stating the fact from stupidity , i have had mine in water heaps no probs at all , perfect footage, my phone is still like brand new and thats entirely from the case, dust proof water proof drop proof , perfect combo, downside the headphone jack is a pain , other than that they are great had mine since they came out for iphone 4s few yrs now.
  12. If you have a smart phone , u can get lifeproof case fully waterproof, i have one for my iphone works well , also heaps of attachments available for mounting, i use it on my boat , also mount to a pole for underwater shots , lot cheaper than buying go pro which are really good but expensive
  13. Hi i want to know what u need to do to add wild caught to a tank , rainbow runners youtube vid says add salt to bucket to stop fin rot & parasites, how long do they need to be kept there? my first attempt did not fair well fin rot with 24 hrs some even quicker than that, is it common for this to happen , wild fish to have parasites? ?
  14. Sorry is this fishkeepers anonymous? i have just broken the golden rule no pics of members .Ok everyone although the features are quite similar that IS NOT [MENTION=13611]Heintz.G[/MENTION] middle front as u can see from baby photo no resemblance at all. i just did it again didn't i sorry
