  1. @RockyG Hey not wanting to ship sorry. @Supercobwe I head there every now and then, will let you know.
  2. I have 2 clown loaches around 10-12 cm for $30 for both. 4 adult Leleupi, I think 2m 2f, have been showing a lot of breeding behavior, but tank is to crowded. $40 for the 4 pickup is Little Mountain, 4551.
  3. Gday everyone. Got a new tank and came with this stand. Good condition, but the sump doesn’t fit under and I have a 1 year old who love water. So need to take out the pieces along the bottom so the sump fits in. But the main thing is I want to turn it into a enclosed cabinet, preferably more of a minimalist design. Also I’d like to reinforce it a little bit. can anyone point me in a direction to some plans to do this? Or some advice?

    I’ve also read it can cause some issues for them - but some people have none. I feed NLS thera and mysis shrimp. Will buy a couple prawns for treats every now and then
  5. Thanks everyone - ended up going to clarke and getting 2 sheets 1200x600x20 for $8 each which isn't too bad!
  6. Yeah good to know its definitely a bad idea! The only place Ive found up in toowoomba is clarke rubber, but they only sell sheets in 1200x600, and the footprint is 2145x655 - is it ok to buy a couple sheets and piece it together with some silicon? And finally, what thickness would you recommend?
  7. Cheers, thanks for that. Just me trying to save a couple bucks, but will track some down
  8. So I'm setting up a new (second hand) 7ft (holds almost 900L) and on the way home the styrofoam base flew off (forgot to weight it down haha), so need new foam. But I was thinking about a pile of those camping foam mats I have in my shed and wondering if they will work? My worries are, they might compress down a lot more than styrofoam, and eventually will just be a thin rubberish matting rather than a cushion? Any comments?
  9. Hey interested in eco lamp led just wondering size and where pickup from. Cheers Kieran

    Cracked 6ft :(

    Riot, well I went overboard I think lol. About 8mm thick on the inside, plenty of silicone, 6mm on the outside. Looks horrible, but hopefully will hold water, which is all I need :-)

    ya, well i really dont mind, just for myself basically, maybe breeding. Sits in the shed, wont be for display. Do i really dont care what it looks like. So does it matter on the thickness to use? And should I put a piece on each side, or just the inside?

    Cracked 6ft :(

    Yeah it is lol...well actually its tinted. The front pannel is actually laminated, so 2 sheets, and from looking at it (really hard to see) it seems that there is the actual starting point crack on the inner pannel and the length cracks on the front. So Ill put another piece on the front? Or it doesnt matter? AANND does it matter on the thickness?
  13. So, re-set up my tank, planning to put americans in there, all rock, sand equipment driftwood in there setup, first fish, going well. Found one rock, and thought 'oh, i should just put that in'. I dropped it (yes...i no) and it hit the glass on the way down and crack. Water was in, and it didn't smash, emptied lots out asap, now just a little left in there for the single fish until I reset up another tank. So picks bellow. Heres the deal, I dont care what it looks like. Can I just silicon a sheet of glass on each side? Or whats the best way? Im not going to pay for a new sheet and re-silicon. I spent 300 rebuilding this a year or two ago from a leak so this is kinda depressing. If the only safe way is to put a new sheet on, then im selling up
