  1. Looking at shutting down my 6x2x2ft tank so seeking expressions of interest, Good solid tank with no scratches that I know of, back spray painted black. Filtration: 1x Aquael Unimax 700 including media ( a mixture of various ceramic noodles, Bakki/MarinePure type balls, ceramic balls) 1x Aquael Unimax 500 including media (sponges and some biomedia too) 1x internal Aquael 1500/2000 turbo (cant remember exact spec) Heating: 1x Eheim Jager 300W Lighting and accessories: 3x 2ft Cree LED lights, and a 2 outlet ehiem air pump and air stones etc. will also come with gravel (a mixture of eco complete and red scoria), some driftwood (shown in picture on the left) (right hand log is being kept though), and some rocks if wanted. can also throw in some Java fern and Anubias for the right price... Full Cabinetry as shown in below pic. Located in Goonellabah NSW will be pickup only, but I can assist with loading at this end Pm me offers or questions
  2. Filtration

    can depend of what fish, as some are a lot messier than others, but I believe it 3-4 times an hour the water volume should turned over, so you would be looking at somewhere between 1500-2000lph filter, I would thing 1x 1800LPH canister would do the job very nicely
  3. New display 3ft cube

    If it's a true 3ft cube then would be near 730 litres
  4. Silver Arowana

    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
  5. Silver Arowana

    Nice!! so some types of aro are legal in aus then?
  6. 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...

  8. geos and a 6ft

    Cheers mate, When you say 5-6 of each do you mean 5-6 of both so 10-12 geos all up?
  9. geos and a 6ft

    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 :-)
  10. Freshwater Moray

    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
  11. Fish Capacity

    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...
  12. 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...
  13. Newbie here Discus help

    Yep, as the others have stated, 6 or more is preferred with Discus for that reason, either that or keep pairs only...
  14. 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...
  15. Interesting, but wouldn't soaking the corals in a bleach solution kill them?
