    johnbetta reacted to crusty76 in Huge amount of wood out of my tanks and pond   
    Looking for good wood? All wood has been in many of my tanks for years. Then as I changed my plans it went into my pond.  lt has no tannins etc. My pond liner split and I've had to downsize  I've just cleaned it all and pressure cleaned it so its ready to go. There's some stunning pieces here.
    $150 the lot ono

    Hi guys after any cheap tanks of any size, just mainly for breeding and sorting, don't need to look great. I am in Redland so anywhere around Northside to Gold Coast would be great. Cheers,

    Big thanks to aquaholics for this 150cm Dymax REX Planted LED, its super bright and with a little help perfect size for the tank.
    Now everything's ready for the babies, kinda wish I wasn't going away tomorrow but there enough hides, elodea weighed down on the bottom to chew on and the adults will be getting a bit of feed while I'm away too.

    johnbetta reacted to billfish in time for a rant cos im pissed off   
    @JByeh , ive always worked on the theory your reputation is only as good as your last deal, so i try to do decent deals and not rip any one off,,,a lot of times to my own detriment and have probably ripped myself off a couple of times
  17. Thanks

    Sorry to hear that bill.     
  18. Thanks
    johnbetta reacted to billfish in time for a rant cos im pissed off   
    2 or so,months ago i was told about a  guy from Victoria that had l144 short fin bristlenose,apparently he was getting out of the hobby, i was chasing some new blood for my group, 
    the pictures i was sent showed really dark yellow  and was told the sizes and price per 10 fish , plus shipping , any way deal was done, cash sent  was told it would be the following monday after he recieved the payment that fish would be freighted as it was his next day off work
    ,fish arrived on the wednesday morning and the missus put them in the tank til i got home to check them out on the friday once they arrived like a dik i deleted all his account and details off my phone,,,i had the fish, none were doa, they were the last of his fish so i wouldnt need his details again.....so i thought
    well now i was farkin annoyed , most of them werent any darker than some of the light looking coloured albino bristlenose going around they just had blue eyes there was a bout 5 or 6 that can be used as breeders by myself
    some werent even the size stated
    plenty of males all around 5 cm and maybe a bit more,,,,,,female numbers were extremely low
    now im in a dilemma 
    i dont want to give the fish a dose of clove oil , theyre not deformed or anything, but in good concience how do i sell these on to other people knowing  that im not happy with the quality  and people may want to breed some, maybe just sell them as individuals  , im at a loss, ive given some males to a friend who i know isnt interested in breeding fish
    but i realistically would like to reclaim some of the cash, i know im going to be out for the freight cost 
    this clown went by the name of Riccard, now his mobile goes straight to message bank ,
    have since found out it happened to another person about a year ago, same name, same location, just different mobile number....im thinkin he just gets a new pre payed sim card after doing some dodgy dealings

    johnbetta reacted to Slipshodman in Short bodied koi   
    @QldMick  You started the thread, of all people surely your allowed to go of topic ...lol..
    Agree with the colour /fin comment, for some reason I don't see that as offensive as line breeding deformities like short bodies or balloon variants 
  21. Thanks
    johnbetta reacted to QldMick in Short bodied koi   
    Besides fantails I've never kept short bodied fish. I've avoided balloon mollies on purpose, and really dislike the short bodied clown loaches and arowana that I've seen online.
    I'm all for the color and fin(within reason) mutations that come up with selective breeding. 
    The fact that they allow genetically modified fish is even worse, genetically modified pets, who would of thought, genetically modified escapees making their way to the wild an even worse scenario.
    So much for staying on topic, sorry.
     
  22. Thanks
    johnbetta reacted to Slipshodman in Short bodied koi   
    @gingerbeer
     I think the same , haven't found a short body / balloon variant of a fish attractive yet 
    But as always, each to their own, I am sure I have owned fish that others wouldn't choose 
  23. Thanks
    johnbetta reacted to gingerbeer in Short bodied koi   
    Just my opinion, but that is damn ugly.  The short body/ ballon varieties of fish are all included.  
  24. Thanks
