  2. Before you rush that way... Rams are more sensitive than discus to water IMO
  3. Beefheart for discus..... miss all the dramas about this topic. Can I start. Discus don't eat cows! No farmers have to contend with a viscious pack of discus hunting and taking down there stock at night just to tear out the heart.....
  4. Who keep them in there tank. I got a bubble tip a week ago and fed it for the first time today, Ate here little pieces of prawn. My clowns seem to ignore it so far.....
  5. I love my seachem buffer and swear by them for my africans. Software a buffer can work against you. The problem is, we measure things that are easy. Probably TDS (Total Disolved Solids) is more important than kH to the fish. What this means is adding a buffer may not work. Especially not if you have something leaching salts into your tank. For soft water I am a big believer in starting with soft water. That is rainwater or RO. Messing with water and variations as you rightly say make a bigger mess than anything. When I went to discus, I started with angels, and practised keeping stable water for 6 months, then moved on the angels. I like to practice on cheap fish. Hope this helps, Steve

  7. If anyone buys the Rhinopias (? Is that the name - the funky lionfish with legs) at @Pet_City it will kill your reef so you can give it to me. I anyone has a dwarf lionfish (Fu Man Chu) it will kill your reef too. I will give it a good home.
  8. @savage_roo @xysti53 At the moment I have not been stripped of my powers on QLDAF facebook so get a post up and I will pin it.....
  9. Check out aquagreen's website and look at the other blue eyes you can have. I had gertrudae before in this tank.

  13. I have a clown fish who has been playing Finding Nemo. I have twice though I have lost him including a trip to @Pet_City to discuss how to replace, and then find him in the overflow. Any idea why she is doing this? I can only guess she is getting freaked out at night. They do have the habit of sleeping at the top of the tank near the overflow. I have now blocked the overflow with a sponge.
  14. I think it is important to remember that a lot of pictures on the net are of prime examples in breeding colour. I have heard that the blues, reds and the rest are harder to breed due to stupid aggression. Hence there are a lot of males around, but less females. Others who have kept and bred them would be interesting to hear from. Thanks, Steve
