  1. Of course Bro did the setups, and won everything like always. Was good to see him again. How you been Donny? =)
  2. I've misplaced my little booklet, but I can pipe in and say that I got: 1st in Big Fish (Australian Lungfish) 1st in AOV Australiasian Fish (Glass perchlet) Champion Australasian Fish (Glass perchlet) Reserve Grand Champion Fish of Show (Glass Perchlet) 3rd in Australiasian Community Hopefully bumping this thread active will get some replies! =)
  3. I logged in just to see if there was an ekka post yet! I guess we'll get there.
  4. I have two short body Aus Bass which I adore. The smaller one seems a bit odd (he swims with his fins 100% erect at all time, it's an odd look) but the older one is happy, active, eats well and is as fast as the others. I didn't get them because I wanted short body specifically, but just that they were there and cute and so I brought them home. I don't mind the mutants if they're happy. Keep what you want. I own two bulldogs so I can't say anything anyways. =)
  5. Blub Blub. Thanks! Congrats to Steve of course! It's his fault for putting in so many entries but that cichlid is lovely as; so well deserved.
  6. Wont eat flake but will eat some froz cyclops and such. Losing some fry now, not sure why, but hopefully have it under control soon. Male has another mouthful; they spawned mid waterchange last night. =) If anyone is liking these guys, I'll be putting my two spare males up for sale, a northern male and a southern (smaller) male. Both healthy and eat well.
  7. I don't mind hatching, for now, but I may start mixing in frozen baby brine in small amounts to see if I can get them eating non-live. Rather hatch forever than risk losing fry.
  8. I'm on a very very longterm search for these guys. I doubt very much they will ever be available in a 'shop' the way they are in the UK or Asia; you're looking at requesting someone with a collection permit to get you some, at your cost. I've been asking around for years and still don't have any. Someday!
  9. First feed, click through to YouTube and watch in HD if you can! They're very determined feeders, not fast, but eating readily.
  10. Definitely tedious. I have one hatcher I purchased, the other is a Sera hatcher kit hooked up to a 1.2 litre water bottle. I have a 5 litre bottle of salt water mixed up for water changes. Using marine salt; wont get anywhere fast with rock salt. I've fed them twice tonight already and they're chomping non-stop. Going to try mixing some fine powdered food in to the feed tomorrow night and see if they'll start taking some powdered as well. If not, no harm, but worth a try to get this batch onto non-live. Uploading some videos now of them eating. =)
  11. Btw, they ate their new hatched brine shrimp with gusto; no issues there. Now to hatch brineshrimp non-stop until I dream about brine shrimp.
  12. Picture should show now. I'll have babies available in a few months. I spent ages looking for my adults; 3 are from PetCity and one is wild caught.
  13. Neat rainbow sheen to the caudal peduncles when illuminated.
  14. Picture may be hard to see but there's about 120-130 fry, 1/2 free swimming and 1/2 still hanging at the bottom.
  15. Aawwww, the wee little archer! <3 I have about 120 (general guess) almost free swimming fry now. Holy crap.
