  1. yer the silver perch farmers purge their fish in clean water for 7-10 days.
  2. hey mate the two main types are African and american, do a bit of research to see what direction you want to go in.
  3. unfortunately this all in one tank had a decent gap across the back that i didnt think about. well 2 got out the other night, and one of those died, the only male. ok so he has been replaced now and have worked something out to stop it happening again. here's the whole tank its a bit strange having fake plants but real ones would just get eaten. tried to give them as much cover as possible.
  4. have a boat? somerset trip.
  5. i think it might work ok if you were breeding them for feeders.
  6. i want to keep them again in my 6x2x2 but its them or plants and ive been growing a heaps of anubias on driftwood for a while now. if you check my other thread you can see i have gotten a little bit back into crayfish again with some cherax albidus.
  7. well i started with large individuals to begin with they did more breeding than growing but the fry grew pretty fast. i ended up giving away 90% of them to a local bloke and just kept a trio. i had 1 super fast growing female that moulted many times but i eventuality lost her to cannibalism.
  8. yer we get sulcatus on the western side of the great divide too just their rusty brown red colors. ive kept some very large valentulus, or the strong crayfish. they were caught in nsw were you are allowed to catch them. i actually inquired about breeding and selling them with the qld dpi, and it was a hole heap of bullshit to do it. been a few years now.

  10. um the fish just guessing were 12 months plus, the crayfish were in a smaller container, he was feeding the same food as the jades because that what the supplier of his fish and crays told him. i tried to get him to get sinking pellets but he didn't. a bigger tank and cray or sinking pellets would help. i also think redclaw do better in dams, although i kept the blue strain of redclaw in a 6x2x2 and some grew ok and they were great breeders.
  11. i know someone that had jade perch/barcoo grunter and redclaw, the red claw didn't really grow much but they did breed, the fish grew but weren't nice compared to the fish we catch ourselves and eat.
  12. definetly not. malawi x malawi definitely, but should be avoided.
  13. yer i think thats where livefish gets thier lungfish from, as well as the $600 lamington spiny crayfish they had. if only they didnt take 8 years to reach maturity and didnt like roaming the forest floor when it rains. ive feed the same species (rusty colored form from a different location) when they were on land one rainy night they were eating fish chunks i gave them out of water on the foot path.
  14. http://www.jardiniinternational.com/fish-collection i was actually going to buy the yellow tandanus in pic 11 and 14th, but got on the piss so went to pic up a day latter but he told me it was no longer in salable condition and died. i would of thought that someone would be breeding those light colored tandanus by now seeing as they have popped up in different places.
  15. im just cheating now... albino murray turtle
  16. just run into a few of these on the net lately so i thought i would save as many as i could on the computer. sorry some of these have already been posted here but now they'll be all together so people can see the possibilities for natives out their.
  17. the others possibly Dwarf rainbowfish - Melanotaenia maccullochi
  18. looks like a crimson spot on the top right.
  19. these guys came today. just getting used to artificial plants as these would eat the real ones i had in there.
  20. just going through camera and found these (been using phone instead now for years). my electric yellows i was breeding from Dfishkeepers line on the goldcoast.
  21. jungle perch going well, he especially likes the little skinks my cat brings in and moths too.
  22. my clown loaches cleared these out but i had some of your type that they didn't take care of and i had to take out whenever i saw them, i may still have some in my filter.
