  1. One of the largest species of cichlids available in Australia. Usually growing to roughly 40-50cm in Aquariums but also have the potential to reach over 60cm if conditions are perfect. Also known as one of the most aggressive Cichlids on the market, a large male is a force to reckoned with and would be at home in a large display tank with no other fish. If breeding, I'd recommend buying a group and letting them grow up and pair naturally. Some sub dominant males become good community fish, females are generally ok in robust communities as well. Umbriferum - $10ea No shipping - Pick up only Bris South - Slacks Creek (2min from IKEA) Shops/businesses welcome. Cheers
  2. Please read the entire ad, these are excess from my Blue Spot linebreeding project. Synspillum are a perfect large robust community fish, they will fit in with other fish like Festae, Robertsoni, Bocourti, Snooks, Texas, Oscars and other largish American Cichlids. They do get to roughly 40cm so a large tank is required. This variant is believed to be from Belize where only few specimens come out of a certain part of the river. The parents shown in the picture were sourced from a reputable breeder in Brisbane, he sourced his fish from 2 other hobbiests who had individual Blue Spot Syns showing little spotting. The parents shown above were the pick of the batch which have now produced these beautiful heavily spotted Juveniles. The fish for sale are 1st gen from the project, the second pic shows their keeper siblings, so that means they are direct siblings and have the same genetics. There's some really good fish in the 5-6cm ones, I want to pull out another 10 or so to keep but I have way too many. The smaller ones are the second batch from the same fish, not siblings to the 10cm ones, they aren't stunted or anything just younger. Photos really don't do them justice, they are so eye catching as a display fish, people come over to buy other fish and they try to buy these off me instead of the fish they came for - you won't be disappointed. Please message with any questions. Before you message - these are not hybrids, they are not crossed with any other fish, I have confirmed with people in Brisbane and overseas about these fish. Blue Spot Synspillum 10-12cm $40 - ONLY 7 LEFT (going very quick) 5-6cm $20 No Shipping - Pickup only Bris South - Slacks Creek (2mins from IKEA) Plenty of smaller ones left, i rate them better then the larger ones. Cheers.
  3. Hey all, I have been linebreeding some blue spot Synspillum for more speckling, these are the 2nd gen offspring residing in the 800L. I will be pairing from these soon to see what comes out of the next batch, 2 pairs are already forming in the tank and i had to remove hides to stop them breeding for now, i need them to be a little bigger. There's excess siblings from this batch which will be for sale soon, they are over 10cm, i also have another 2 batches (5cm/7cm from another adult pair) showing lots of potential which i will post if i can get a clear enough video. I update YouTube a bit more regularly now so i have recorded these guys and their parents since I've had them, same with the Umbies and a few others. This is the most recent video of the blues, but you can flick through the vids back to when they were in eggs in the parent tanks. There's Also some Zonatum in the tank a Festae and some Umbies. Cheers
  4. Either 2 tier or 3 tier, both are fine. Located in Slacks Creek, delivery preffered and will pay $. Pm please Cheers
  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.
