  1. Apistos with geos

    Has anyone ordered off livefish.com.au before?
  2. Apistos with geos

    Haven't even started looking at which type. Just wanted to hear some peoples experiences. My geos have been with the tetra school for about 4 months now and all fish have grown a considerable amount, not a single torn fin anywhere. Might get 2 pairs. Not worried about breeding, have 3 plecos in there that eat all the geos eggs, not interested in going into breeding again, but if it happens it happens.
  3. Wanting to add a couple of apistogrammas to my Orange head tapajos tank. Cant find enough info on the net of these guys together. There are 7 geos ranging from 3-4 inch and 27 buenos aires tetras, plenty of wood, adding plants every week. Will redo tank if they are compatible and make more hiding areas. Has anyone had any luck with these guys? Thanks
  4. Were they fertile this time? Is it always the same fish that pair up?
  5. Maybe they just need more practice.
  6. Bloody rabbits!! @Lockymck how are your eggs going? Suprised mine keep dropping eggs they are all 7-10cms
  7. Which plant fertiliser to use?

    Thanks for the replys guys, going to try easy life first since i have ordered it already, will try that for a month then give all that dry ferts a go and see which I prefer. Thanks!!!

    Place a airstone close enough to stop debris going near the eggs, but not too close.

    Maybe once fertile just put the parents back with the others and move the divider over so its just the wood and eggs, then once free swimming use a piece of airline to create a suction and move them to another tank. Thats what i would do that way the water parameters stay the same. Or just submerge a bucket and put the whole piece of wood in the bucket and move to another tank so no eggs leave the water.

    Jeez that will be a bloodbath! Have they done any damage to each other yet? I would try to wait till the eggs are fertile then separate the eggs completely.
  11. Which plant fertiliser to use?

    https://www.thetechden.com.au/Easy_Life_ProFito_1_Liter_EasyLife_Universal_Pla_p/pro1000.htm?CartID=2 This one sounds good. Does this cover everything?
  12. Never really kept plants, Have started Stocking java fern and anubias, noticed one leaf on my anubias starting to show clacium and potassium deficiencies. No idea what fertiliser to use, want to use a liquid one as all my plants are on wood. Also would purigen affect fertiliser and would it affect any types of fish/plecos as well. Let me know your experiences. Thanks!
  13. Found some wood in the garage and redone the scape, prefer this one much more. Just need to buy more plants, the geos now have the whole floor to sift. Wish i got the last of the black gravel out before i added sand, makes the substrate look dirty, ill save that for another day.
