  1. What is the name of the little leafy plants you have as carpet in the sand? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I'm trying to work out the best flow rate for my multies. I have 15 in 120L with a large blue planet internal filter and a small Hopar internal filter to help move the water around for no dead spots. I know they prefer low flow but I need to run the pump at full capacity to get filtration right and keep the water on the surface moving. If I try to restrict the flow (putting extra filter floss in the filter) it doesn't generate enough flow to move the water on top of the tank so some of the food just end up floating around. I've had them for about a month now with no luck spawning yet so any tips to help get them to spawn would be great too. I've been doing lots of water changes 20% to try to induce spawning but no luck yet maybe I need to leave them alone for a while. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for the advice I'll stop feeding them a few days prior and keep an eye on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I got some from a guy out west of Brisbane +61 433 503 387 good quality stock and cheap Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I got a letter saying that the power to my building will be off from 8am-4pm and I have about 8 tanks. I'm wondering what the best way to go about it would be? Here is a couple of ideas that I have but I would appreciate some input if you have a better solution: 1. Do water changes on all tanks around 12pm I've had a power cut for 4hrs before with no issues so I thought this could work 2. Add some hydrogen peroxide to help keep the water oxygenated 3. I think filter media will be ok but would it be better if I took it out and put it in its own bucket so it doesn't dry out? Looking forward to hearing some great ideas thanks in advance.

  7. Aqua one said it's covers under a 2+1 year warranty but they said I need to go to the store I got it from with the receipt which I didn't keep. Has anyone got a spare receipt for a 200w aqua one heater that they don't need? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I thought aqua one was a reputable brand I might contact their customer service and see what they say. Thanks for the advice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I didn't say they were Seiryu stone and they are quite large the biggest one just under 80cm. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I just noticed there was some water inside my heater I took it out just in case but have read about condensation. I can't see any cracks in the glass can someone tell me if this is a throw away or if it is still safe to use. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. I've just changed up a couple of my display tanks and I've got some rock for sale if anyone is after some. Starting from $20 or will discount for multiple items This is the same type of Rock in one of my tanks sorry it's a bit cloudy I just set it up today. These are the ones available.

  13. What other species are good with Shellies I've just set up a tank which I hope to find some lamprologus multies or similus. Would having a BN effect breeding behaviour? Also what about other types of catfish such as ottos etc? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I've got this ball of hair algae that seems to float like an Afro and Even though I don't want it in my display tanks I do quite like it and was wondering would it be harmful to fry at all? I would have thought they would actually feed on it somehow Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Legend! Much appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
