    Pretty camera shy but here we go.

    Many thanks for the reply - a work in progress
  4. I found with a 4ft tank that having a CO2 outlet at one end wasn’t enough. Pearling was only going on for two thirds of tank. Added CO2 outlet at other end and doing a lot better. I’ve been happy with the CO2 probe cutoff as well. Much safer on fish but still managed to gas a few.
  5. Delapool's 150 gallon tank

    I confess I think I over-stocked the tank on these spanner barbs. Looked much smaller in shop... Very stocky, actually dwarf the angelfish a bit. And if the tank was a boat, they would be tipping it to one side as they rush to follow anyone coming into the room. They kind of remind me of goldfish but I think goldfish have more manners.

  7. Hello from Brisbane!

  8. Delapool's 150 gallon tank

    Ninja shrimp photos (the iPhone was struggling). Bit more colour and maybe some banding. Very tiny but very busy!
  9. Do they seperate off from the school or anything before hand? I wonder if it could be viral? (Can’t find it but thought the carp virus builds up, then suddenly takes off, with mortality shortly after).
  10. Black Beard Algae

    Same for me - CO2 doesn’t make a difference. I’ve had BBA growing on the CO2 diffuser quite happily. Lighting and type would be my first check. As above on H2O2 on spot injection. (Check websites for dosing and not to be over-dosed and also some plants hate it).
  11. New plant leaf is turning red/brown

    Was guessing the red on new growth is just new growth and also wondered if something having a go at it. Not sure on plant sorry. I have java fern and bolbitis is Perth water and they are doing well. Val might also be one to try.
  12. Hi new here

  13. Scented wax melts

    Might have heard of one or two similar cases but nothing confirmed. Open tank?
