  1. Not so native guppy population

    That is so true.
  2. Pseudomugil Mellis?

    Yeah, what do you need to know ?
  3. Pete, hey Phil here. Long story short I just lost all my Running River rainbows that I bought at last ANGFA meeting. Devastated all dead + fry and a big f#$k off dead cane toad in the pond. Wondering if you know anyone who has some.





  4. Anyone got any Running River Rainbows for sale ?
  5. I live at Forest lake and someone wanted me to drop $20 worth of tetra's to Ormiston. WTF indeed.
  6. Hey Donny, sent you a message, take a look.
  7. Why get into that position in the first place. Prevention is better than a cure.
  8. Get rid of them now before you have a plague.
  9. 3 for $25 , they normally retail for $15 a piece. Will throw in a large Silver Hatchet fish.
  10. Sorry, its a Native fish thing. If you don't go collecting in the wild it probably isn't that obvious. I am a member of ANGFA, one thing that is drummed into us on all collection trips is the importance of avoiding bucket burn. Bucket burn is when you take fish from the wild and throw them into a bucket, they get stressed and they swim around and around the bucket glancing off the sides and scrapping away their slime coating. Years of collecting experience amongst the members of ANGFA has found that you have a greater survival rate if you do the following instead. 1 line your bucket with a black plastic bin liner, then fill with water from the creek you are collecting. Add a tablespoon of salt for hygiene reasons. Aerate the water with a battery powered aerator and place bucket in the shade away from the sun. 2. When you catch fish, put them in the lined bucket. When you are leaving either tie up the bag like you would a plastic fish bag or transfer into clear plastic bags and use the black plastic bag to transport the fish home. Darkness is good, its stops them getting stressed. The same logic should apply to transporting fish that you buy from another hobbyist. Don't use a bucket, put your clear plastic bags inside a dark bag like a woolies grey plastic bag. If you notice when you buy fish from an Aquarium, if its any good, they will put your purchase in a dark plastic carry bag to take home.
  11. Yeah Jason, why am I not surprised. The Gummies alway, always turn up with Buckets. They get a stern lecture from me about bucket burn and the fact that a white bucket will freak fish out. Thick as pig sh!t the lot of them.
  12. Hey mate. I knew there was reason why I rarely use Gumtree.
  13. What the Fcuk is wrong with Gumtree buyers ? So I am selling a few of my fish on Gumtree. Nothing special, just thinning down the exotics to make room for Rhads. I have three Yellow Tailed Congo tetra to sell. A bloke writes to me wanting to buy them and has asked for photos of the fish in Question. FFS !!!! Its not like I am selling a Flowerhorn or a Arrowana. Its a Yellow Tailed Congo tetra FFS, you've seen one you've seen them all, especially when you tell the seller that you already have a school of them. Christ on a bike !!!!!!
  14. Native Nano Tank Keepers

    I have a large apothecary jar with a small school of P Gertrudae in it, lit by an small LED. Java fern needle leaf for plants, no aeration. Will try to photograph soon.
