  1. Still a few left, a bit bigger now $10ea Or Open to swaps on certain Bristlenose, Americans or Exotics. Cheers
  2. Hey John, The price for 10 is stated above. They get pretty big, 60cm in the wild but more like 40-50cm in Aquariums depending on the size of the tank (bigger the better). Growth is solely up to the fish keeper, if they aren't looked after they will become stunted and stay a smaller size. With proper care they will reach their potential. They eat what most other large Cichlids eat, pellets, mussel, prawn and the like. Not too fussy with water, just town water does me fine and i tend to get regular spawns after a big water change. I suggest do a lot of research before buying to see if they will suit your tank. Cheers
  3. They are 4cm mate, i'd suggest buy a group and grow them up and let them pair off themselves. Cheers.
  4. One of the largest American Cichlids available on the market, the Umbriferum will out compete most other cichlids for territory in your aquarium. They can be quite aggressive so only put with other robust cichlids. I had mine in with other umbriferum accompanied by some dither fish for breeding. If your looking to eventually breed these guys then I suggest do the same, get a group and let them naturally pair off, once they have established the pair you will hafto move the other fish so they don't kill them, or have tonnes of hiding spots. The 2 first photo's are of the parents. $10ea Or Swaps for Bristlenose, L's, Americans or Exotics. Pick up Slacks Creek or can deliver local for $. Message if you have any questions, i don't mind helping people out. No wholesalers. Fish will be pre bagged when you arrive for a quick transaction. Not letting people into the house due to the recent covid outbreak in Logan. Cheers everyone.
  5. Hey all, recently moved and delving into the hobby a bit more, started the fish room under the new house and have about 12 ponds out back. I've got the bug again so i'm starting to upload videos again like i used to, have a looky if you like your Natives n such Cam Also on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/PrecisionAquaticz/
  6. Found someone, thanks everyone. Admin you can delete. Cheers.
  7. Hey all, Needing a hand moving 2 tanks, ones 8x2.5x2 the other 6x2x2.8 tanks and stands, last time i had 5 people and a Van which made it easier but still had to do 3 trips. Was hoping by the off chance someone has a long tray ute or another van that could help with lifting and delivery, tank and stands only. Fish will already be at the new premesis. I'll have 3-4 people with me and a Van to help. I can chuck you $ and a case for your troubles. Located Arana Hills, moving to Slacks Creek. 04323585077 shoot through a txt, if you call i may not be able to answer due to work. Thanks everyone.
  8. Hey mate, you should look into some Threadfin Rainbows if you havn't already, a big school of them makes quite a display and will swim happily with most tetra's. No native equivalent to Pleco's :(.
  9. I know a few years ago i dropped out of the hobby and only had 1 3ft down from 4,000L, id did what i wanted with freshwater side of things and it got boring so i went onto other things. 1 reason was limitation with fish as i wanted fish we couldn't get and some that i wanted cost several 100's, then i'd see them go for $20 overseas in Indonesia or US and would just put a downer on owning new fish and tanks, feels like Aus just get rorted with fish and QLD especially compared to the southern states. Now after a year and a bit im back in with Marine tanks again which has really mixed things up and is a new challenge, brought on other interests in freshwater again too and now have 5 tanks all totaling 2,800L and trying different scapes and layouts. But the hobby as a whole i'd say it's a bit of everything, power, money, time... it's just changing, mass fish breeding is becoming hard and so here's the influx of smaller low cost apartment type tanks, meaning less fish are purchased. Even with the hobbiests there's only so much we can get into the country or find in Australia which holds us back.
  10. Ended up taking media out stripping the silicone off and resealing with lots of silicone on 2 edges. The old stuff just peeled straight off easy with a blade which helped a lot, taking the 1,000 Bio Balls out 5 at a time was the hardest bit lol, could only grab a handful. No more leaks! Cheers.
  11. Hey guys, In a bit of a pickle, brought an 8ft recently with sump and all components but the guy didnt tell me the sump wasn't sealed. I got everything ready and started filling and about 3/4 way through and it all started filling up at almost the same rate, so it's basically one big full tank. Really annoying. So just after idea's of what you have done in this situation. I was thinking.. I could drain, peel back silicone on one side of each wall and put a strip of acrylic down on an angle to block it, as the gap is way too small for a hand to fit down. Take everything out and start again - completely dry and re-silicone all walls. Do the dodgy and try some underwater fish safe glue or silicone and slap it on one side of each panel with media still in it. In any case there's a 400L tank right next to the sump so im gonna hafta move it to get the sump out. Ideas?
  12. I have a solor powered pump in mine with a fair few blue eyes and bristlenose, it just fountains in and create a bit of air and movement. It also has around about 6 bucket loads of Foxtail in there to keep organics down. The water is super clear i could even drink out of it and have only ever done 1 waterchange, something like this may work for you? Otherwise could drill a bulkhead into the side and do a gravity bucket filter.
  13. Well if that pic isn't edited then that is sensational piece of coral and great camera work!
  14. Saturation 80% or 100%? lol Plate looks cool though.
  15. Thanks for the feedback, funny you say that as i was just talking to a rep about that exact product, was picking their brains on how i was gonna do this and they mentioned that. I will probably go down that road now but still hafta get a sump design. So far i've just bought el cheapo stuff before i delv deeper into Marines, i've been a freshy for a good 12 years lol.
