  1. Are you selling more Mick? awesome work
  2. @raycam01_au hi mate, do you guys ever come down to brissy? I’m keen to give these beauty’s a home.
  3. That is definitely Protomelas Spilonatus ‘Tanzania’ he needs some love. awesome fish, very rewarding to own but be careful with only one girl, they can get pretty damn rough with others.

  6. Yes, I did thin this quite a few years ago just to see if it was possible. I had no issues whatsoever. Like anything be patient with the cycle. I used live rock with aqua one wave makers & a HOB aqua one protein skimmer. No issues, I just got bored with SW Give it a crack
  7. Without resorting to a chiller setup try freezing some coke bottles of water and set them in the tank at the start of the day
  8. Very nice fish everyone ! for a dwarf cichlids noob, what tank size works best for pairs? keep the pics coming (even though it’s a super old thread)
  9. what type of turn out has there been for these events in the last few years? Im considering going for a peep tonight but 6pm start is too early of me, it no worries if they run late like they used to. Anybody have a guess what time they have been wrapping up lately & if the variation of fish is worth it these days ( not that I'm going to buy, but if its all bristlenose it may be a touch disappointing) Thanks everyone
  10. Hello @butch50 matey! You crossed my mind the other day when I was considering what to keep into the future, are you still keeping Aulonocara Lwanda? The ones you had years ago were extremely nice
  11. Cheers guys. @jc12 I was considering soft water to accomodate some fish in the 1 tank I do have currently running. BUT they will eventually be really large fish & I don't want to limit myself. I have thought about this a lot, I was wondering going Appisto's & L's just so I can keep tank sizes small & maximise on my space. BUT at the same time there are all these amazing Malwai Haps that I miss keeping & worry they will be lost going to into the future (I do realise Im not going to keep a species alive on my own, but its nice to dream) So to be honest, Im not sure which way the room will go. I will be honest in that I haven't ever kept a lot of soft water fish, apart from P.Bass but they are very robust & hardy. so its more of a concern that I am inexperienced with that side of things to be honest.........
  12. Im hearing you mate! I just had one asshole fish destroy $600 worth of fish in one night!!
  13. Hello, In all my fish rooms I've had I have never insulated. Ever. I just dealt with the weather as it happened. Probably very energy inefficiently as well I would guess. So I'm Going to be using half of my small garden shed this time as a 'room' as its just a simple Gal 'Stratco' type kit shed with this sheet walls I am considering insulating it. Cost is a major factor in this small build. SO, I am looking for any suggestions for cheap enough insulation to go onto the inside of the shed walls to help me out. Any recommendations appreciated, I am looking at 'FoilBoard' brand panels from Bunnings but they are $40 a panel and I will need a few of them even for a small shed. Thickness is also a consideration as I don't want to detract from my already limited space. Thanks Guys & Gals!
  14. Hi Everyone! Long time so see (speak, type, whatever) I've spent a long time time away from the hobby (or so it seems) I had a break from it all including the forum for a while after I had a fish room wipe out We all know the forum went quiet a long time ago but during my snooping over the last month or so it has really hit home just how quiet it has become, including ACE & PCS forums. I Just got too busy with work and family & found a new exiting hobby that was time consuming but on my own time, not like keeping a fish room going. Now things have settled down a bit I have been thinking of starting a very small room in my backyard shed (away from eyes this time) and started visiting the forums again and I'm am surprised at the lack of activity, although I see Ray & Sarah doing a nice job posing about all their new toys making me jealous So what I guess I'm wondering is where have all the serious keepers/breeders gone? are they still going & producing or just keeping colonies but not taking fry? Or perhaps just lurking like myself as the forum kinda doesn't seem worth wild posting onto? We all miss what the forum used to be but I am wondering is everyone still around, lurking? or are a lot of them packed up and gone for good? It seems a lot of quality fish could be lost by this happening. I will endeavour to contribute to the forum as I start from scratch again (well almost) Hi to everyone I used to know & don't (yet) * Thought I would dump a heap of old pictures of fish I have kept in the past, these were some of my favourite fish. The Peacock Bass were by far the nicest, form the originals that came into the country. I miss them, but I don't at the same time
  15. That’s no good to hear matey. Tap water?R.O or rain water mate ? Or a mix? ive never kept them apart from when I was a teenager
