  1. I tied a rock to it with some fishing line and buried the rock under the substrate.
  2. thankyou guys, havn't been on for a while and thought things had died off. will upload a photo of tank. thanks for the advice
  3. quite discouraging that no one has any advice or willing to help out a fellow fish keeper, evident that this place has gone to piss.
  4. I have a 4x2x2 hooded tank with 4 fluro lights. I currently have only a couple plants two anubus varieties and some java fern. of the anubus is doing quite good, the other could be doing better as could java fern. 2400 lm , 80 lm/vv , 30W/840 are the specs I can see. Philips brightboost super 80 cool white. Is this adequate? currently giving them around 5-6 hours of light a day. Have a diatom problem also covering the foliage. tank is cycled and been running for about 7 months. Not looking to spend big bucks on lights and something that won't chew to much power. Any info on the lights, hours of lighting, diatoms, would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi Guys, was hoping someone can help me with some information or picture of aquarium friendly silicone that will not eat away a polyurethane foam background that it will be used to hold in the aquarium. thanks, Rob
  6. Big thanks to Rob who went out of his way ( other side of Brisbane) to deliver fish for me..

  7. I'd imagine them being in abundance up there, Have you tried any fish breeding farms? I heard there was one up north that bread them and bara may be an option? Or a cast net into some of the rivers and creeks
  8. Same here interested to try something new with my lepto fry if this works out well for you
  9. I get a little bit of brown algae on my tank if anyone has any info on what this is caused by also and how to remedy it, would be appreciated
  10. Possible heater malfunction, direct sunlight, heat from lighting? some things you may want to look at
  11. Always nice to see innovative ways to do water changes
  12. I have been using aquasonic rift lake buffer powder also and it has been working fine for me
  13. I have been using API for quite some time now and am satisfied with it.
  14. I have used the spirulina flake for quite some time now with my adults and fry, may introduce some veggie flake into their diet aswell.
