    I’m back!

    Hey every1! After afew years out of the hobby I’m back. Moved back to nz 4 family reasons but have since moved back to Rockhampton. I setup a 4ft marine aquarium and was loving it but just couldn’t get the catfish out of my head haha. I’m a huge fan of the Blackwater setup. In nz I had a 6ft running with uaru and geo plus many pleco and whiptail cats. I have since sold the marine setup and started with the Blackwater again. So starting the great fish hunt all over again. The Fishroom build is coming along with all the plans in place. Have a 8x3x2 that will go at 1 end as a show setup and then 2 walls of 2/3/4ft tanks. I have found some common and royal whiptail so have that sorted and think I have some reds coming at some stage soon. What I’m after is so if the other types twigs crying whips giant whips that kinda thing so if any1 has a good contact let me know would love to see afew other Blackwater setups or whiptail breeding setups if any1 has some photos post away! So yea just a big hello to every1 again and hope to be doing afew trades with every1 in the months/years to come

    Where did we all go?

    I was also away from the hobby 4afew years. Moved back to nz and had afew fish over there. When I got back to aus and started keeping fish I seen that most forums had all but died off. It’s seems to be all about Facebook now. I loved the forum days has it seemed like every1 was helping each other with great info and lovely fish. Now with the Facebook stuff a lot of the older keepers kinda keep to themselves I guess and we have lost a lot of the great info and fish contacts from the awesome forum days
  4. Looking for some whiptails. I have some royal and commons but still looking for some twig whips or any other type that could be forsale any help would be great. Thanks jason

    Cracked 6ft

    The rope was there more 4looks than anything. I looked at the tank today and the crack starts at the bottom where the glass has bin chipped away and runs up the tank. I drove like a nana tank didn't move at all on the back. So def wasn't the rope. Oh well this kinda thing happens. I just fix her up

    Cracked 6ft

    Yea I was told to move it this way so gave it a go. The rest of the trip was 150km with no damage at all. They used a crow bar to get under the tank and lift out of the stand

    Cracked 6ft

    Hey guys just picked up a 6x2x2 today now when I looked at the tank yup sweet no damage. The stand had a lip on it that the tank kinda sat in so getting it off the stand was not easy! Anyways the guy I got the tank off said yea I no how to do it I'm moved it heaps. So I left him and his mates to it and sure enuf they had it on the back of the ute no drama. Now it gets messy. On 1 end of the tank was back ground and I was thinking mm y would u have it only on 1 end so I looked and no crack all is good. The old owner said that the sun came thru that side in the arvo and he had a hard time with the glass going green. Yea fair enuf I was thinking. Any who tied the tank down and went on my way. Stopping at a servo just down the road to get fuel and that's when I seen it. The end of the tank now has a crack in it!!! So looks like I'm going to have2 replace 1 end of the tank. Now what is the best way to do this? Some people say u have2 rip the tank 100% apart and rebuild the whole tank. Is this tru? Any hint or tips would be very handy!! Thanks!
