  2. Nice wanna sell some ?
  3. Hey pete can u inbox me your number please i'll be in brissy tomorrow heading back up the coast in the arvo, interested to have a look at some plants, honeys and rhads if thats cool? Cheers, jake.
  4. Hi im looking for some nice natives that arent readilly available to collect myself in se. Qld. Even some nice different rainbows like splendidas, trifectas, threadfins, gobies, png species Or the Gymnothorax polyuranodon would be grouse! Im in brisbane on sunday 19th if anyone has anything of interedt, cheers!
  5. Vallisneria, cambola, elodea, hydrilla, bladderwort, hornwort, lillies, water milfoil, heaps of other natives and pests are readilly found in our creeks and look great in an aquarium.
  6. I have 2x ibc plumbed with 2x 32mm drains skimming the top being gravity fed into the bottom of a 60lt bin full of media that sits on bricks then spills into another 60lt bin with more media and a return pump 7000lph 25mm pipe spliced at a T intersection with one pipe going back into each ibc, the return pipe is angled just under the water level with a T piece on the end with the open end facing into the air to suck in air and work like a venturi return which agetates the surface and adds lots of oxygen bubbles. Seems to work pretty well except build of gunk on the bottom of the tanks, if i was to replumb i would use a syphon with a syphon break below the desired level spilling into gravity fed overflow.
  7. Ive got a spangled gudgeon i will trade for north australian rainbows or local rhads
  8. There are still wild jp in some of the upper reaches of the major river systems on the sunshine coast so if you really wanted a nice specimen you could always go for a fish, i wont tell you were tho.cause.there rare as f@rk and that ruins the fun
  9. Snakeheads are for sale now and then, it helps if you have some contacts.. spangled gudgeon can be collected around maryborough tho! And as far south as noosa i collected one in the river in the last lot of heavy rains, very random but its in my tank now lol
  10. I brought some plants back from picnic creek in the sunny coast, my tank is now infested with the buggers, about to drain the tank and bleach it
  11. Ok , i had a collect around little yabba creek The other day, got a great haul of rainbows, pbe, empires, striped gudgeon, shrimp, glass perchlet, psg and unfortunatley amoungnst the 100+ beautiful natives, 1 single lone swordtail. Very dissapointing day for the mary river. Also seen heaps of fw mullet and juvey spangs swimmin around.
  12. Blue eyes and rhads will get eaten by gudgeons
  13. Hi, just enquiring to see if you have any jacks or know of anywhere to buy them, thanks Ryan

  14. Ive had 2 sootys before, both were viscous beasts, both killed numerous larger fish like my 2'+ leichardtii :/ would definatley recomend them, grew to 45cm and fat as
  15. I recently collected some ultra rare rhads, colours like ive never seen before on any internet pics, and want to show em off but my 5mp phone camera just doesnt cut it . Looking to spend $100> any links for online shopping? Btw the rhads pectoral / anal fin is likecan african violet colour, more purple, with black edging, and the dorsal is light blue, with the electric blue strip down the back, slightly transperic pink cheeks
