  8. https://www.livefish.com.au/tropicals/shrimp-and-crays/lamington-spiny-crayfish-euastacus-sulcatus.html lamington spiny cray, well I'm glad to see them but I cant afford them. a few years ago I talked to the dpi about breeding a spiny cray from NSW, euastacus valentulus, where I could legally collect them but there was to much involved for me to bother going along with it. all spiny crayfish are protected in qld but I would happily pay $50 each for these guys aquacultured and I would buy a few.

    Mountain Minnows 80L

    I don't know about ghost shrimp but you can keep glass shrimp https://www.livefish.com.au/tropicals/shrimp-and-crays/glass-shrimp.html or you could catch your own river shrimp. they also have crimson spot rainbows and murray river rainbows which you could keep without a heater, or ofcourse you could catch your own local ones.
  10. hey ive gotten anchor worms from introducing wild caught fish to my tanks/ponds. I got rid of them completely by physically removing any I found, may be harder in a big pond tho.

    Cichlid identification

    doubt it is ahli, not sure even if we have them in aus. I was thinking more along the lines of protomelas spilonotus or similar.

    Cichlid identification

    first of all I wouldn't call it a female, it looks to be male. im not sure if its a peacock or not but maybe another similar hap.

    Outdoor fish pond

    I think a pond liner from ebay or Bunnings would be the cheapest for something new. you can also post an add in the dry goods trader for a pond and grab one second hand.
  17. I didn't feel it, I scrubbed it with a tooth brush I wouldnt say it was rubbery tho, it was very easy to remove.
  18. hey noticed this growth of something that looks like fungus on my anubias and wood. ive seen it before but don't know how to completely get rid of it. heres a photo of it and a second photo of after I scraped most of it off with an old tooth brush.cheers mick
