  1. I wanna see a video of the move. Catching would have to be fun with a fish with a big bite and lots of hiding places to strike from.
  2. Just my opinion, but that is damn ugly. The short body/ ballon varieties of fish are all included.
  3. I am not convinced by this ad and closing it. Buy at own risk.
  4. Angels in general are cranky bastards disguised with a nice name and form. Never had Altums - on the one day list. Problem is the one days are getting less while the fish to keep one day list is growing.
  5. If you consider freshwater tanks, the hardcore plant hobbyist setup will be more expensive. Substrate costs more, lighting, CO2 systems..... Same with marine. The cost depends on what you want to keep. with both you need to think about compatibility. Freshwater IME is much more forgiving. Marine is the ultimate challenge to get right for the hobbyist. You need more time, how much like cost depends on how extreme you go. My general advice with any tank is just the one must have, whether fish, plant or coral and design your tanks around that. Thanks, Steve.
  6. Thanks, I am set and have Microworms and Vinegar Eels. Steve
  7. Slippy has it in my view. Bore water can be an interesting mix of minerals that the fish is not used to. The tests we conduct when you say “the conditions are fine” can be based on what we test for, that may miss the issues with some funky bore water chemistry. Do you have access to any other water sources? If not I think it may be worth considering using an RO filter and building your chemistry back into the water, rather than complete with the complex chemistry I suspect we have. I would typically if I had to use Bore water look for a 50/50 Bore to rain water mix.
  8. With Val, many report die back. This is often caused by how the leaves are trimmed. Val likes to droop over the surface, don’t over trim.
  9. Any pictures. Good to see some true Trimacs.
  10. i cannot reveal all as I have a golden rule that no Macmasters, hongsloi, cacatoides or aggies will set foot in my house. The red tefe look nice and I was tempted. I choose some fish I think should be more common in the hobby, and one of the above banned fish.
