  1. Haha thanks! That’s crazy! What a bunch of guts! Gotta be one of the most unique tanks for sure!
  2. do you have any videos of feeding at all? would be super keen to check out!
  3. Very cool - and those eels, my goodness thats brilliant!
  4. Yeah, ive shut tank down now. Have a few big pieces, some medium and couple small. Im in Little Mountain, Sunshine coast
  5. I just took most of my lava rock out. Mine are getting pretty big between 20-35cm, and bbecause they are so skittish or get in fights they started getting hurt from the roughness of the rocks. So right now i just have large pots and haven't noticed any damage. So if they are smaller, rocks all good. Bigger, it can work, but be careful. Some point in the future i might try put some smoother rocks in or look for other solutions, but for now the pots are perfect for them...it just doesnt look as nice
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. Thanks everyone - ended up going to clarke and getting 2 sheets 1200x600x20 for $8 each which isn't too bad!
  9. 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?
  10. Cheers, thanks for that. Just me trying to save a couple bucks, but will track some down
  11. 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?
  12. Hey interested in eco lamp led just wondering size and where pickup from. Cheers Kieran

  13. 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 :-)
