  1. If it's a true 3ft cube then would be near 730 litres
  2. sweeet!! they are my dream fish, but i thought i would have to settle for a toga (one day when dreams come true), but if silvers are legal!! Yehaa! back to dream number 1
  3. Nice!! so some types of aro are legal in aus then?
  4. No ideas but every single neon i have ever owned seems to get them too, but as you said, has never transferred to another type of fish...
  5. Hmm heckelli look amazing!! I may have to pm you @tutters187
  6. Cheers mate, When you say 5-6 of each do you mean 5-6 of both so 10-12 geos all up?
  7. Hey guys, I am planning on redoing my 6x2x2 soon and I love the look of a geo tank... Just wanting some advice from more experienced geo keepers.. A. My LFS has tapajos, jurapari, balzini and supposedly surinamensis(from research highly doubtful). I want a variety that are chilled out not terribly aggressive but not flighty... in everyone's opinion what is a nice variety? I will be setting it up with sand and some nice driftwood with anubias and ferns etc attached... B. It will be just 1 variety plus some dither fish and a nice pleco, how many would be ok in my 6x2x2, it is very well filtered with 2x unimax 700 filters canisters and a turbo 2000 internal as it was previously used for discus... Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated :-)
  8. Gorgeous hey! from what i could find out on the interwebs, looks like they dont tend to get any bigger then 60cm, generally less in an aquarium it would seem
  9. do you dose your planted tank at all @Gillatine? if so then the water changes maybe need to be a bit higher, but if not then you do a heck of a lot more water changes then me lol, my tanks aren't as stocked but my water changes are more like 30% every 1-2months, so long as you are testing the water and keeping the quality good, stock to the level you feel comfortable with...
  10. I've used peat moss and Mopani wood before, how much was just trial and error for me its been awhile since i was playing around with it though so can't remember...
  11. Yep, as the others have stated, 6 or more is preferred with Discus for that reason, either that or keep pairs only...
  12. If you are only wanting "viewing lighting" they work ok, so for africans they are probably fine, they dont work well at all though for plants...
  13. Interesting, but wouldn't soaking the corals in a bleach solution kill them?
  14. Right so i'm not going crazy lol
  15. How the heck does Coral and water cause a reaction? I've never kept a reef tank, so I am honestly not sure how that would have any impact at all? aren't corals meant to be in water? someone please explain this to me :-/
