    I never quarantined feeder fish, until I got anchor worms in my system. Now I never use feeder fish. Because anchor worms Suck.

    johnbetta reacted to TED in Quarantine wild caught feeder fish   
    Big risks feeding wild feeder fish. We have all done it and know the consequences if things go wrong. I would suggest setting up a feeder breeding tank. Guppys, endlers, swordyz, mollys, gudgeons, what ever you like. Some people even breed americans or africans to use as feeders for bigger fish. Never have to worry about disease and losing your prized fish.
    I will never use wild feeders again after a bad experience. You learn from your mistakes and you can also learn from other peoples mistakes. Wild feeders will only cause you troubles. Maybe not the straight away but it will eventually.
    They are not free when you look at the consequences and will probably end up costing you more money.
    Good luck.

    You could look at it 2 ways, first- if ur going to feed one at a time so that there's nothing left, the stomach acid should kill any diseases. Or if you are going to catch heaps and put into a tank for later, then realistically the fish should be treated from the inside out, wormed,gill and other flukes, other parasites like w.s,fungus ect. With proper treatment times and rest periods in between t'ments. But who's going to do that???. And people wondr why their prize n joy gets sick lol
    Most people's idea of quarentine Is a joke. If you feed live food you have the threat of diseases, can be costly esp if the fish decide to only eat live fish. But its up to you

    Well you can always do the reverse, and add a fancy pet shop male in with some feral females. Same result, crazy coloured hybrids that are super tough.
    My favourite thing about feral genetics is they are usually better at surviving low temperatures making them better as winter pond fish than other bloodlines.

    Trying my luck again to see if anyone has any pure Amphilophus Trimaculatus (Trimac) available. I’m away of very few left in Australia.
    Willing to pay good money for pure specimens, more then happy for Growouts if they are available.  Please message me on here or text message me 0452117671

    Hey Dude,
    1st - nice tank.
    I keep Gourami - i have a Big Pink GG, a gold spot (normal) and 2x honey dwarfs. I also have Cherryshrimp but keep them only with Endlers and BN's. Endlers dont eat them - other guppies do. My 
    GG is a vegetarian & isnt bothered by other tank mates, but Gouramis are clasified as Omnivors - it depends on the species if they will eat other fish/fry or shrimp, but if you have sufficient hiding spots in logs/plants/etc, they should survive and breed.
  13. Thanks

    Mahachai, imbellis, and stiktos.  And if the isolation continues, I suspect I'll venture into mouthbrooders.
    Breeding but only unintentionally.

    johnbetta reacted to gingerbeer in QLDAF change of rules   
    Yep Doug,  It looks like someone cried.  I am trying to get it back. 
    We do and almost always have a post pointing here for sales.  Some people break the rules, and I consider myself not to be the facebook police.  If we can get it back I may have to dress in a police uniform and inform the facebook rules more.  Any posts of police uniforms offered to me should probably go to off topic.......
