  2. wow they didn't waste any time, well done.
  3. Well its seems after adding some driftwood & plants I have picked up some worms in a couple of my tanks. First ones I am pretty sure are leeches which are crawling on glass. Second ones I think may be Nematodes as they are small hair like white worms 5-10mm long very thin & they swim in the water like snakes. I tried treating water with Big L Pig & Poultry but has had no effect on either. I am guessing its going to be full strip downs & potassium permanganate. Any idea what dosage because I would assume its going to be treating everything. Tanks are run on sponge filters which were only new so will they need to be thrown?. Fortunately there are very few fish in the affected tanks but I don't want a spread to all of my tanks.
  4. My Frontosa wouldn't touch it but the Kribs eat it. I don't believe I would buy it again.
  5. I don't believe you can import any fish food as a private buyer. I know when I ordered some snail traps from USA I had to get the bait sample removed so it would clear customs. However I am not an expert and as mentioned you should check with customs.
  6. Move stereo near fish tank, turn down lights and play some Barry White
  7. Well considering you see them living happily in local creeks and dams from careless owners deciding to "set them free", I would imagine there would be no issues with them living in ponds.
  8. With so many available I was wondering if anyone could recommend based on quality accuracy and price a brand or type of thermometer and the same for a digital ph test pen. I know I have bought a batch of 5 glass thermometers before and all showed different temperatures when they were supposed to be high quality.
  9. Cheers, looked it up and yes thats what it seems to be. Its good stuff keeps the water crystal clear.
  10. I bought a large amount of gear a year or more ago of an old hungarian man who was a tropical fish breeder. Included were a number of bags of resin. They seem to be like purigen however he recharged them using water with just a few pinches of salt in a big bottle etc which was then shaken. Are they purigen or is there another type of resin?. When running clean water through them water is clear however when cleaning on recharge the water its washed in with salt is dark urine brown.
  11. Oh and I ended up wasting a whole bag of pea and prawn mix from smiths. Fed the Frontosa and sat to watch them eat, lost concentration and walked off then found the bag of thawed mush the next day. Silly me.
  12. I never did update this. All frontosa are happy & healthy. The wounds have healed and they finally ended up eating regularly after a few weeks of settling in. Thank you all for your help.

  14. Agreed I find the ARU tanks very satisfactory for the price, haven't had a bad one yet and I have at least 10 of my tanks from them.
  15. Just got home from work and same female now has a big scratch down her side. I have taken those pots out as they do have sharp edges. Still worried they wont eat properly, have fed them fresh peeled and chopped prawns and fish fillets and they have dived on them chewed them a little and spat them out so I removed the food. Tried some pellets I had and they did the same, got a sample of some Hakari food from Smiths my LFS and they dived on them but spat them out as well after a couple of chews. The only thing they have definately eaten is frozen blood worms. I will get some NLS Thera A tomorrow as thats one of the foods they were fed by previous owner. They still seem healthy enough apart from the scratches on 1.
  16. These are a relatively new arrival for me & the tank is only a temporary cycled quarantine tank until they get a new 6x2x2. There is a UV on filter & tank also has geo liquid. They may still be a little stressed with the new surroundings as its only been 2 weeks. They are being very fussy with food too but I am guessing that's stress too. Water quality is good and clean bottom. The caves are from there original tank so let them keep them to try and make them feel at home.
  17. Just noticed one of my Moba females has a small wound on her head, I am thinking just a scrape or fight wound. What do you guys think and recommend?. She is in a tank with 2 other females her size and a large male.
  18. If they don't kick the eggs leave them with dad
  19. Yes you do need a license and you cannot collect them from the wild, you need to keep a log book on where they came from etc.
  20. I put around 500 platies in my turtle tank a month ago and there are about 70 left now. I expected them to be eaten and they were all pond breed so was not too concerned. Yes turtles love catching their own food and even the fastest fish sleep sometimes. On the upside it keeps the turtles active. PS Turtles also love to eat your favourite plants.
