  1. Howdy, I know this may not be much of a help but I heard from a breeder in Sydney that they popped up there 1 year ago. if you have any contacts down there see if you can hunt them down again. they were the variety you are chasing.
  2. $50 each for the colonies , they are getting bigger and looking nicer every day. taking a hit on both these colonies. need them gone by next week or off to the LFS to trade for pigs ears that the dog can chew on
  3. I need to move these two colonies on $75 for each group need to make room for my blue neons
  4. I spoke to Butch via PM on the 5 December and said he is downsizing, still had a few bits and pieces available
  5. No worries steve, I did see that they had them also. Hopefully someone out there can help us out
  6. I'm chasing a handful of these guys, 5 or so would be good, please PM if you have any or no someone who does. Thanks Rob
  7. I have 2 young colonies for sale Neolamprologus Pulcher Daffodil x 5 ( 4-6 cm ) $75 Julidochromis Regani x 6 ( 4-6cm ) $75 Nice young healthy fish , pretty good odds to get some pairs . Making room for other things , Photos of actual fish.
  8. Use a power head pump, drop it in your drum put the hose in your tank, easy. doesn't have to be anything thing with massive power, 300-400 LH shouldn't disturb your gravel much
  9. Hello all, I am looking at placing a power head into my cichlid tank which is a 4x2x2. It has a 1000 L/H Eheim canister filter. The design of the tank is a rock pile in the centre. my concern is a build up of debris in the rear section of the tank behind the rock pile. I would like to place a power head to create water flow at the rear of the tank behind the rock pile to toward the intake nozzle of the filter. It will be stocked with Tangs so I don't want them to get pounded to much by the current that will be created. So my question is what size power head should I use? I read that the general rule of thumb is 3 x your volume in the tank which should be something around 1200 L/H. will this be to extreme? I am more inclined to go a little lower maybe 600 L/H or 420 L/H The last thing I want is to blast my fish into the other side of the tank but want enough flow to ensure movement and push any debris build up that will occur. your advice and experience would really be appreciated before I pull the trigger and buy something
  10. I tied a rock to it with some fishing line and buried the rock under the substrate.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
