  6. EOI 35cm Australian Sleepy COD

    Amazing bargain then! That middle photo looks just like Mr Bruce. That bottom one has amazing colours, I do wonder why they loose the colours and go the plain Brown when grown. Wouldn't you want to be brown when little to avoid predators and when your bigger and less of a target then be pretty? hahaha mmnnn. Might consider reducing the price.. haha whats your offer?
  7. EOI 35cm Australian Sleepy COD

    @Kylewhite where did you buy it from? (If you dont mind me asking) Ive got this price tag on Mr Bruce as he is a high quality fish. Has never had any health issues, no defects on his body anywhere. Only fed top range floating pellets and has always been in high quality water environments - I can assume if someones caught one wild and out of a dam/stream for $40.. . Just my 2 cents.

  9. FS 78cm Hollow Drift Wood

    Hey Everyone, Original owner was a paperbark tree down the park from me, was a heavy pram ride home, but a score to find on a nap time walk. Its 78cm long and 28cm at its widest, has a nice sweeping curve, and lots of tiny crevasses and hidey spots for prawns/fry. I did cut the original tree/branch/log in half so this is only 1 piece of the tree... what was trying to lead onto was.. that 1 end has a smooth flat cut (see pictures) so It can stand upright in your tank for an amazing in/out of water center piece. its been dry for about 2mths now just chilling in our shed. was previously chewed down by my Peppermint Bn Fry, then was a hidey spot for my 35cm Sleepy Cod. No nasties or diseases! Pickup Clontarf 4019 $60 ONO
  10. HELP! 15 cm Sleepy COD

    hes up for sale now.
  11. Hey Everyone, many of you know the story of me coming to the need of a 15cm sleepy cod that turned up at my door that night being actually 30cm. Well the big 'boy' (unknown sex), has now grown to 35cm's. Hes currently eating a small packet of Hikari floating 'food sticks' a month, as well as the occasional feeder fish or Yabbies. Also loves garden worms and can be fed by hand. Anything bigger than 2cm he will eat whole and with furiosity. (Will bash the top of the tank with the force he uses to propel at victims (sometimes coming 4cm out of the water). Some facts about Sleepy Cods, as theres literally 0 posts on the forum about them. Classified the largest Species of Gudgeon, can grow to a max of 45cm (not recorded in a tank situation), can survive in tempertures from 4c to 35c, (MR Bruce sits at around 29c in our tank). Its not written anywhere, but they have the most effective clean up system for poos! Its literally the size of my thumb so an easy suck up and clean as you cant miss them https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleepy_cod http://www.coburgaquarium.com.au/sheet.php?id=576 Not suitable for planted tanks as 1 swish of his tail if hes determined to get something and everything will be uprooted. Hes currently in a bare bottom tank with 1 large log for hiding (log comes with him) and a small floating plant. If your game you can house tank mates with him, but I wouldnt.. hes eaten every house mate we have tried putting with him, from big yabbies with huge claws to large goldfish... he just wants to be big and alone I guess. Needs to be housed in a 4ft + tank. Just looking for offers at this stage. We are in Clontarf 4019 I have no experience in shipping fish, but your more than welcome to take that route if you wish. Serious Buyers are more than welcome to see him in person. x Crystal aka BristlenoseGirl 20171003_190800[1].mp4
  12. baby bristlnose dieing

    I used to feed my Albino and other Babies Raw Pumpkin, skin and all. and would mix it up from week to week with Zucchini, Pumpkin, and Mushrooms (just on a weighted fork). DO you have a photo of your current setup? Sometimes an outside eye can pick up on something that can easily be passed by. <3 Happy to hear theyre being kept with the parents and the parents are dong okay.
  13. HELP! 15 cm Sleepy COD

    @Jeremy3057 Your sleepy cod is such an amazing colour! I wonder if they change with age.. or just stay the way they come? Mr Bruce is fully Brown with no changes in colour except some lighter highlights Wiki'ed... They are dark brown along the back and paler on the sides, with fuzzy dark lines running along scale rows.[2] Juveniles have a white or cream patch running along the back and top of the head, with brown sides and a white belly. well there you go!
  14. By the colour of his scales.. it looks likes hes being burnt/under alot of stress by your water.. Whats the Ph like in the tank? Did you use old water from their last tank to add to the new tank?
