    mines about 7.8 and I've always kept albino bristlenose with them. I also have clown loaches and a red tailed black shark.

    Hi everyone,
    Nice to be here. Recently moved up from Melbourne. Been keeping all kinds of fish for 20 years, moving more into the marine realm lately. Have two tanks running atm, hoping to fill both with soft corals as they mature. 
    Adopted the barramundi cod from someone who had it in a 100L tank. Will upgrade down the track.
    Sorry about the quality of the photos, had to reduce to post!

    The following morning i was up and managed to get the filter installed with the CO2 kit.
    I've kept them out from under the cabinet for now, so i could monitor everything.
    Initially, there was a leak from the inline diffused - i just hadn't screwed it up tightly.
    The tank was running well, however, i noticed a bit of evaporation over the following few days.  After closer inspect, i found a very very small leak in the eheim inlet, where it connects into the bottom of the canister. Given this was installed a manufacture, i assumed it was not something that i could deal with. In the end, i had to take the filter back for a replacement, with no dramas from the replacement so far.
    I also managed to head out and find some plants, including a red tiger lotus and some tissue cultures of glassostigma.

    Hi All,
    I'm new here but thought i'd start up a thread about a project i've just started.
    I'm planning a 24" x 18" x 18" planted tank. The tank is about 17 years old, and hasn't held water for at least 14 years.  Recent test seems to show it is still water tight though.
    I've just finished building a new cabinet for it. Made of 70mm x 35mm MGP10 pine from Bunnings.
    I needs a LOT of filler around the trim and a coat of paint. Hope to start putting together hardware for the tank next month.
    Thanks for looking. Comments and critiques welcome.

    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

    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 

     
     
    Some more images from the build............

    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)
