    there's plenty of wild goldfish in the condamine and leslie dam, mostly wild coloration but I have caught a colored one below leslie dam and another colored one in a creek in Toowoomba, bigger than any goldfish from a tank.

    Border Collie meets Goldfish
    Small problem today.... the BC went for a long throw ball in the backyard and hit the wading pool. As its been in the sun for 2years the pool promptly split washing flappy goldfish at the Dog. Who just as fast turned tail and ran from the deluge.
    I now have 6 free large pond goldfish to go to good home. Send me a PM, else I will throw them back in the Billabong with the GPGs.
    Cheers. Grover

    QldMick reacted to Brad11 in Bristlenose Catfish Breeding   
    Hi all
    I'm a newbie looking after my wife's 60 litre aquarium which started off with what we thought were two male catfish, but one must have been female, as it has now become a Bristlenose breeding ground, with many small fry and several which are surviving to become around 2cm long. I'm not in this hobby to breed Bristlenose, nor do I have the capacity. Is anyone out there interested in adopting them, including the female? I can't tell exactly how many there are but it's at least a dozen or more. I just want to go keep one or two male catfish. I've included a few photos.
    regards
    Brad

    QldMick reacted to Cicho in EOI - Champsochromis spilorhynchus colony   
    HI all, 
    I have a small group of Champsochromis spilorhynchus (4 fish) I am looking to move on. 
    They are roughly 15 to 18cm in length with a couple of definite males and the other 2 are unknown. 
    These guys need a fair bit of space, and when they fully mature, are spectacular. 
    Pm me if you have any interest. Not really sure on value given they are not hugely common. 
    Can send picks if requested. 
    Cheers, Craig

    Hi all,
    It is waterproofed with a pond sealer and yes I heated and curved the perspex myself. That was a mission but next time will be a tonne easier.
    I have a vacuum for press that i ended up using to heat the perspex until it was pliable, then i shaped to suit.
    I don't have fish in it atm as i tried to aquascape it (unsuccessfully) and have just removed all of the crap in it to go back to a simple setup. I will however probably screw a piece of driftwood with an Anubis on it to the side for a little flare. 
    I have a number of guppies (which have just had around 25 fry) which i will most likely put in there.
     
    I also used some devils ivy for a little aquaponic setup to help with maintenance which is running from one of these.

    I also have one of these air bubble filters

    Hi Guys,
    I am new to the hobby and the site. I started to get interested in aquariums recently and being somewhat 'handy', I decided to have a crack at a unique aquarium build.
    I ended up building an aquarium from a full size wine barrel and putting a perspex porthole in the front for viewing.
    I'd love to get some feedback from you guys on your thoughts and potential issues going forward just please keep in mind that I am a builder/cabinet maker/creator and not a seasoned aquarium enthusiast. I just had an idea and wanted to get into the hobby.
    I wouldn't mind making a few of these for people either, if there was some interest.
     
    Thanks in advance.
    (First and last images are of the tank empty)

    QldMick reacted to DFishkeeper in Electric Yellow Legal Import?   
    Well, I have just seen a video of some 8 - 9cm imported electric yellows currently in a tank in Melbourne. To be honest, I found them very disappointing and there is no way I will be obtaining any to use as breeding stock,  in my humble opinion my own strain are far better quality, both in colouration and body shape. I do not know where the ones in the video were imported from, but I am assuming Asia.

     My understanding is that electric yellows are not collected wild from the lake and exported nowadays. Presumably importers therefore will have the option of importing quality German stock or cheap stock from Asia, much like with Cyrtocara moori (aka blue dolphins) which have been an allowable import for many years. In my personal experience the German blue dolphins are far better quality than the cheap Asian ones and I assume this will also be the case with electric yellows. So I'm expecting there may be the odd small import of the quality German lines which will sell at a premium, probably mainly to serious breeders. But I expect the bulk of imports will be cheap Asian stock by major wholesalers which while admittedly bringing some new blood into the country, I do not expect to add any appreciable quality to current stocks.

    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.

    QldMick reacted to Paul_cad44 in Rebuilding stand due to water leak   
    Hi all
     
    Just wanted to post my diy effort of rebuilding a stand. I had a store mdf stand as part of the aqua one package. My filter must have leaked as I noticed that the mdf was swelling. I panicked and immediately broke down the tank and moved the fish to my second tank. It had 500kg of weight on it and I didn't want to be cleaning that up.
    I managed to salvage the doors, top and side panel. I followed the online guides and built a new internal frame from structural pine. Recladded the frame with the salvaged panels. I think it looks the same so mission accomplished. Cost about $120 for timber and paint.
    Let me know your thoughts.
