  1. Pure Mantilla male 25+ cm $800
  2. Lighting

    Anybody know what brand lights would be the best and brightest lighting for my 12 x 5 x 2 1/2 ?
  3. Lighting

    Thanks for your help guys
  4. Just wondering which brand of pump would be the best (most reliable) to run in a sump system (10 000 litre per hour pump)? I am running a 12 ft x 5 ft tank with 2 sumps and having all sorts of problems with new DCP-10000 Jebao pumps, from seized impellers to electrical boxes.
  5. What's the best pump?

    Thanks for all the replies. I appreciate it .
  6. Jebao pumps

    Anybody had problems with Jebao pumps. I bought 2 of 10 000 lph pumps and one lasted 24hours Got a new pump replacement today ( a week later) and plugged it in and it ran for 1 hr .Wasn't the pump or control box this time ,it was the power box which also comes with it .
  7. Clark rubber sells Dacron on a roll.
  8. Forum Colours

    Who cares what colour!Isn't it good enough just to have a forum like this running?
  9. seriously

    Totally agree with you.Unfortunately it's becoming the way of the world.Everyone wants everything for nothing.So sad but true.
  10. Anyone know how much 20 cm Leopard Cactus's and 20 cm Watermelons would be worth?
  11. L 114 and L 330.

    Not into L 047's sorry mate.Thanks anyway.
  12. best paint - back of tank

    Head down to your local sign writers and get some black sticker.They will cut some off their rolls for you.Like jcumpstay said.Use soapy water in a spray bottle.Spray the sticky side with your soapy water and then place it on your clean glass,then use a flat soft plastic applicator or even a squeegee and run it across your sticker to remove the water under the sticker. It's that easy.It won't flake off either. Good luck. Warren
  13. tank cleaners

    If they can fit in your clown loaches mouth,they will try and eat them.I had loaches eat a complete batch of fire mouth fry years ago.They even picked off my albino bristlenose fry as well.Little buggers.Learnt my lesson pretty quick.
  14. JD's both female??

    Totally agree with you there Kasman.
  15. help with picking cichilds

    Maybe try some Kribensis and Rams.Some smaller geophagus species also.You don't really want fish that are quarrelsome,especially in a 4 ft tank.Some people will argue with that of course.Don't overstock with the same species either as they will probably fight a lot amongst themselves.Maybe you need harmonious first tank until you get the gist of things otherwise you might go through a few fish.Good luck with your fish hunting.
  16. I feed all my fish Spectrum which I get from you guys at Age of Aquariums.Also need the driftwood as Watermelons eat timber as a part of their diets. Every 2 weeks i'll throw in some chopped up fresh "Saltwater" prawns which I take the shells off.I soak the prawns in fresh water for about an hour before feeding them which takes a little salt out.The L114 leopards love them.I don't use algae wafers to feed my plecos at all.Spectrum has loads enough ingredients in it to suffice.My Americans eat it and all my various pleco species eat it.I pretty much swear by the stuff.
  17. changing colour

    Why not try a couple of wrasse species.If you really want to be tricky you could get a small octopus.
  18. Flagtail Racisim????

    My guess is that your fish think your flagtail has come of age to be eaten.They are a Brazilian bait fish at the end of the day.
  19. Poor thing :(

    Could be nuclear fallout.
  20. Starting a petshop/ fish shop

    Not being negative,but i wouldn't bother wasting my time unless you have bucket loads of money to waste.Power is going up thanks to foreign owners and if you haven't noticed,people getting out of fish in winter because of excess power.You can buy cheap fish on this site for example.I do agree with evilpierre when he said buy an existing shop.Look at smiths.Mark must be doing alright after Bill exited the shop.Hence the prices of fish,staff wearing pretty shirts, etc.I know he's trying to make a living ,but he's to pricey for me,but to each is own.I tell it how it is.Don't care if i offend.The truth hurts sometimes.I suppose he's in a "Yuppy" area though, so he might be paying bucket loads of rent?.At the end of the day,it's hard earned money people throw away,which was ok 20 years ago.These days it's a battle just making ends meet.I'd go to exotic fish or old mate a Darra.Oh no!Should i have said that?Can't wait for the feedback on this one.Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha...................Bring it! Trouble making Wozza.Gotta love it.:flame:
  21. Rate my fish tank standard is a bit low?

    I'll send a picture of my toilet with my fighters breeding in it.I'm on tank water so the chlorine doesn't hurt them.Lol.Only kidding.
  22. I'd try cichlasoma grammodes,cichlasoma beani or cichlasoma motaguense.Good luck. Wozza.
  23. Poor thing :(

    It's got the virus.Don't ask me what virus,but it's got one.Lol
