  1. That wouldn't surprise me, in the waterways of Gladstone, there is all sorts , from oscars, to red devils, and others.

  3. How big are you after , and how far are you willing to travel. Cheers Scott 0411263007

  5. 1 looks like a bleeding heart tetra 2 congo tetra 3 maybe female crimson spot rainbow 4 ?? tetra, the names on the top of my tongue 5 female rad or rainbow of some type 6 maybe a keyhole , or other small south american.
  6. Cheers mate, I'm already using the coloured pull apart ones(both floating & sinking ) atm , so , I'll try the light acid bath you suggested and give them a good cleaning. And I'll try the no airstone approach, but don't know how it will go with the corner filters, but , thank you for the advice that I never really thought off.. Cheers Scott
  7. Thanks mate for the helpful tips, I never really thought about using no airstones, as airstones are a basic requirement to everyday fishkeeping, we are tought from the first tank we ever owned. I'll also take into consideration the no / bigger cornering with the main I have already. Once again , thank you. Cheers Scott
  8. Thanks mate for the replies, when I was in town I used 2 x LP100's on a free flowing ring for about 80 tanks , with not much of a problem , but now, I'm using bore and rain water mixed, on about 40 tanks , I'm finding the airstones are blocking up more frequently, naturally with the extra minerals in the bore water, so I was thinking about blocking of one end to keep the pressure up , or keep it free flowing and just keep cleaning the airstones.
  9. What is people's ideas on airline ringmains, have one end blocked or have the ringmain free flowing , for better performance and easier going on the pumps.
  10. You know it's dry when you come home from work, to feed your fish , when you come across this little surprise. Silly bugger, if he picked the tank below, it would of been a bit warmer, as it had a heater in it
  11. Looks to me, like an injury, either from lip locking /, feeding etc. I'd try some melifex or maybe some meth blue, if you have a spare hospital tank, as to not stain your main tank blue.
  12. I have albino sailfins and commons , a couple at about 25cms and a couple of smaller ones at about 15cms. They don't get fed any thing special, just what the africans get.
  13. Well, I can understand that the bristlenoses will eventually be food, they don't have any armour on them, except for the spikes on their chins, I've got large and small Plecos as tank cleaners, and they do a fairly good job, better than bristlenoses , it may be different in a native tank.
  14. If you want to cut out most of the aggression, remove the females out of your tank, with a male only display tank, there is no reason for the males to fight, unless you want to breed , then stick with the one specie and breed.
  15. Or use a 2L coke bottle, they work in the same manner,.
  16. Pumpkin, if you want to put a nice colour through them.
  17. I just use ice cream containers with an air stone in it. No expense except for a belly full of ice cream.
  18. They probably just came through the tap water, during water changes, like trumpet snails do.
  19. I would be more inclined to using a couple of box liners instead of the norm big bags, otherwise you may be ableto get some anesthetic from a lfs to slow them down a bit in the box.
  20. Not that much different from small fish, except 1 fish a box. Only real difference is that it wouldn't hurt to fast them a bit longer than small fish, say 3 -5 days, instead of 1-2 days.
  21. I've got cory's in my fry tanks and I'm on bore water with no problems.
