  7. These guys have very different diets and water parameter requirements. so it is not advisable. Tropheus require a higher pH and hardness of water to emmulate Lake Tanganyika than the other malawian based cichlids and they have an almost holistic vegetarian diet where as the other have a higher protein requirement. Too much protein in trophs will kill them
  8. Why not move the fish with out the mouthfulls? Leave the mums alone in the tank, and put the EY and OB's in the 4 foot? Having said that - it is a lot of disruption for all concerned. You are better off leaving them all alone until she has held for between 14 - 18 days, then as G'beer has said you can strip nearly fully formed fry from her. These will need to be kept in the same water as they were raised for a little while for better survival rates, and wait for the egg sack to be consumed before you attempt to feed them anything. The longer you can leave them in mum's mouth the better off they will be. If they are only young mums, do not be surprised if they loose the mouthfull well before then - they are just practicing and will get it right eventually. As for stripping/milking her - have a look throughout the variety of threads and youtube videos to this effect. Just remember - if you ever pick up a fish in your hand, always make sure that your hand is wet with the water they are coming from, otherwise you will strip their gel coat straight off, and that possibly leads to all sorts of issues. As stated, there are a number of peacock, and more generally, african breeders on here who do this day in and day out - I am sure more advice will follow mine. And........welcome
  9. Go to any auction - plants galore......... There is one planned for next Saturday, 10 March......
  10. No personal agenda here either mate, just trying to share some knowledge - as we all try to do on here. I love a conversation/debate with the best of them - but when they descend into babble, the constructive nature dissapears. There was no shot at you in this post. I dont think the issue is so much that they are non-indigenous, but they are classed as noxious - a whole different set of rules.
  11. SIGH And here I thought was an intelligent conversation. At no time has there been any information as to the distance from a waterway as provided by the original post - and trust me, over the last couple of years, many of those distances are being revised due to flooding levels anyway. You obviously have no idea the infrastructure loss over the last two flooding periods, including massive numbers of troughs. Have a look at General information on pest fish | Primary industries & fisheries | Queensland Government Particularly: "Some non-indigenous fish species are can be kept in privately owned aquariums and ponds provided they cannot escape into any other waterways (e.g. they cannot be kept in a dam if it may overflow into a river, creek, etc. during a flood)" Is always interesting to also realise the number of Officials who troll sites like this - particularly for biosecurity issues...........
  12. There seems to be a little misconception about the use of troughs. Yes they are used where natural water is not available, but they are more used when the riparian or natural water zone is attempting to be protected from cattle camps or trampling, therefore troughs are put in to remove the impact from this zone and provide a more consistent and monitorable place for a watering point away from such a sensitive site or ecosystem. Regardless of where these are put, the addition of a noxious species in a way that can then infest a natural water way is illegal. Yes - a trough thaty is 10km away from a river is still classed as a water way - as is a street gutter in Ashgrove. As for tree frogs/tadpoles - you would be suprised where these guys live - I travel across the entire state for my job in rural and regional areas and I have yet to find somewhere that does not have tree frogs. However, most of the tadpoles that you see are more than likely cane toad young as the majority of troughs are not over 18" high and thus accessable to cane toads Just a few thoughts
