  1. They have 999a at pet city but I'm not sure of they have it in black.(or how far that is from Ripley) Worth giving them a call though:-) I'm gonna be looking for some myself this week so if I find some I'll let you know where.
  2. Spot on Leigh. I found that they keep the plants Looking great. And the whiptails are always happier with some plants to hang in.
  3. Thanks again for the advice everyone. I am a bit curious as to how this thread got back to the top???? This thread was started about 18 months ago and I thought they were lost in the forum move? I have recently moved house and no longer have a problem with bats or fruit trees :-) Thanks again for all the good advice. Cheers Jono
  4. Thanks everyone:-) I was told what they were last night but I already forgot :-/ Apparently they are harmless and wont last long. Thanks for all the help. Cheers Joni
  5. Thanks ray. I will cut up what I need and the rest is yours:-)
  6. No native collector they are definantly not the things in that link but thanks for trying to help:-) Hi regani. I tried to take a pic but they are about the size and shape of a flea. Maybe a bit smaller. And unfortunantly the royals(about 10mm long) are to lazy to eat algae if they are sitting on it. Far to lazy to chase food;-). I am using rain water so I'm looking into that for a potential source.
  7. G'day everyone. I have been using my hospital tank to grow algae and put the odd batch of royals and alf bn fry in to get started. I was just doin a water change and noticed some tiny little bugs running (not swimming) around in the corners. Makes me kinda nervous. Can anyone tell me what they might be? Are they bad? And how can I KILL the little buggers? Thanks in advance. Jono
  8. G'day all :-) I have a stack of tinted Perspex just sitting in my garage and given my poor history of cutting glass I was hoping to use it as baffels in my sump. Does anyone know if it's safe to use? Also i have more than I will need so if you would like some just give me a call on 0435193646. Cheers Jono
  9. Lol I rarely have $150 to spend on fish :-( I just meant $150 is better than the $190-$200 at AOA. I will get some raw plastic beads from my sister and play with that for a bit. Things I never would have thought of trying. Thanks again Winston :-)
  10. I found the k1 for $150/50L so it's not to expensive. Also it cleans it's self so I'm pretty much sold on it already :-)
  11. Thanks very much Winston and 175myles :-) still being reasonably new to the hobby this is the first time I have come across this kind of filtration. I am only running 2,000L of lightly stocked tanks (for now) and that is running at 13,000lph through 20L of matrix, 15L of aqua clay and some miscellaneous media I had lying about. But from what I have read the k1 is more efficient at coping with a sudden increase in the bio load. Is this correct? I think I will try and setup something similar to the sump AEF posted in the sump photo thread, using the 200L drum as a nexus (until I can aford one). Thanks very much for the advice thus far. I would appreciate any advice people are willing to give on the topic. Cheers Jono
  12. G'day all. I was just wondering if anyone has used this media? And if so would you say it's more effective than regular bio-balls? http://www.aquariumproducts.com.au/catalogue_products.php?prodID=4299&catID=9 I appreciate any feedback/info on this. Cheers Jono
  13. Saw it yesterday and it is fantastic:-) great job Nev & Paula.
