  1. Hey Folks, I am using Fluval, AI Freshwater Prime and a LED I bought off Aquaholics online. I found the Fluval is okay light but if you want crisp day light in your tank, the best light to be the one I bought from Aquaholics. AI prime is a decent light but you have to do a PhD to figure out how to use the app. App interface is very hard to understand and use..
  2. Finally found some Frontosa Chumbu fry. Hopefully I will get them on Friday. Post some pics bit later on.. very excited
  3. Thanks for the reply Tdj5, I am open to any type of frontosa at the moment. The importance is getting quality as I would like to keep fish that are true to the variety. I need young fish so I can get a nice colony going. Please message me if anyone can help. Thank you
  4. Howdy folks, Back in here after few years! After a nasty bout of bloat, I gave up fish keeping. Back in after setting up my tank again. Now the age old question of what fish to keep. I wanted to try Frontosa as the kids wanted to keep blue fish .. I have 2 tanks, but only one running at the moment. So looking at buying 8-10 fish, wild caught or F1. I am in Sydney so closer to home would be good. Unless I can get them shipped? Any tips around where to find some good quality fry ? Thanks all..M
  5. Hey Guys, I am back, sorry I was so busy with work and other sturf... my colonies are going okay after my bloat issue... lost few fish over the last few months... mostly due to tank aggression... I will take a few photos and post here...
  6. Hey mate, after treatment my fish are okay again.. I lost 9 fish... I think the cause was too much salt and over feeding. All fixed now...
  7. Hi Andrew, I keep tropheus and love them... I have kept Frontosa before (not many about 10). Both are exciting fish to keep. However Tropheus are more demanding if you ask me.. I just had a bout of bloat and lost 9 fish... Frontosas are more colorful so your wife could be right ... either way good luck.. you can always have two tanks and keep both...

  9. Tabs are 400mg. Thats my hospital tank.. Main tank is over 350 L. I have the sick fish in the smaller tank. (They are babies anyway... only 4cm fish). Hospital tank is a 2 x 1 x 1 ... Actual literrage would be 45-50 L as I only filled it to 80%
  10. Thank you ! so half to 3/4 tablet or so for 45 L tank ? Also How long should I treat them for ? Cheers ...M
  11. Hi Folks, One of my Tropheus tanks got hit with bloat. I have started treating them with Metro and Epsom salt. Could someone please let me know the dosages and the treatment regime ? I just wanted to make sure I am not doing anything wrong.... Dosage for Metro, Epsom salt, How many days and the frequency of water changes would be good to know. Also should I feed the fish during the treatment or not ? Thank you !!
  12. Hey Guys, I think Eretmodus cyanostictus blue spot Kipili (Goby)is one of those underrtaed cichlids in Australia. You can get W/C under $50 each. I have 6 and love them to bits... very interesting to watch...
  13. I collected my 6 W/C Eretmodus cyanostictus blue spot Kipili from Grant Parks yesterday... Nice fish... They are eating okay at the moment... very excited to have my very first W/C fish...
