  1. thanks I have Melanotaenia fluviatilis but I don't think many. If you want the rest of the fish and plants take them as I think I am going to hav to just take a hammer to the tank unfortunately.
  2. Hi all, I have a fish tank with hood and stand (black) to give away ASAP as I am relocating house interstate. Location: Brisbane City Tank comes with heaps plants including azolla, val, swords, crypts, driftwood and aquasoil. Also contains rainbows, purple spotted gudgeons, agazzi's glass fish and glass shrimp. The tank would need a big makeover as it has been outside for a year used as a pond but contains over $1000 of plants (all would need a dip in potassium permanganate). Substrate is about 150l of aquasoil. If no takes urgently, I will have to dump it and really don't want to have to do this! Will need quite a few blokes to lift!! Pictures attached in current state (also photos from better times of what it can look like - also this side of the cupboard has now been covered in wood and painted black has cut outs for sump and cords) Please contact me on 0423384426 if you want!

    Toad Tadpoles

    Go for gold! Feed those fishes!
  4. I got mycobacterium granuloma a few years ago! Don't ever put a bleeding wound or cut into a fish tank. Apparently the water contains the free floating bacteria. Similar to legionaries and soil. If fish are stressed or poor water conditions they are susceptible to getting it and certain species more likely to get it than others (Bettas). Very hard to get rid of after you get it! I was on doxycline for 9 months and saw an infectious disease specialist at the wesley but the antibiotics ruined my immune system. If you have it take kefir! or eat lots of naturally fermented foods. regarding aquariums, heavy bleach and alcohol and leave empty for a long time! bacteria are highly resistant. bloody rigid cell walls!! good luck!
  5. WTB Microworm and/or a Vinegar Eel Culture if anyone has any close to Brisbane City? Would love to pick up ASAP! Please text me on 0423384426 if anyone has any cultures they are willing to sell. Thanks, Anine

    Rod Lewis's discus

    Hi I am looking to buy about 5 juvenile discus, does anyone know of anyone currently breeding? I am interested in any strains. Thanks, Anine
  7. Well I got pathology results from a lump on my finger, took 4 weeks to culture but I now have a mycobacterium confirmed infection which I got from a cut in one of my fish tanks outside. Not such a 'rarity' as one would think. Now have to splash a fortune on seeing an infectious disease specialist. IF you think it's TB ensure you where gloves when cleaning etc, use ethanol to clean followed by bleach than ethanol once again. Bleach wont kill it, it is an extremelllyyy slow growing bacteria but it is highly resistant to antibiotics and most cleaners. GOod luck and cross fingers it's not TB, but as unlucky as I and some of my fish are I am about to set up a 6x2x2 and cannot wait! Nothing will stop me from enjoying my hobby!
  8. Hi I was just wondering what the hourly pay rate was? My partner is currently looking for work
  9. Yeah I did some research prior to doctor who agreed with me so glad I did!
  10. God what a horrible story! Can't beat a cycled tank (excuse the pun) I hope he is ok now.
  11. Thanks for the head up! Been doing my research too, grossed myself out knowing I once swam in a green swimming pool, don't ask me why! My partner is even more against my hobby now haha ohwell it's not going to stop me!
  12. Hey guys please be aware of the dangers lurking in your fish tanks!! About 6 weeks ago I cut my finger on a tin can and stupid me before it had healed completely put my hands in one of my tanks... 2 weeks later after the cut had finally healed I developed a small bump with a little pustule on it, didn't think much of it but since than I have been to the docs.. After much deliberation and after a script of antibiotics we are thinking Aquarium tank granuloma. Please be aware this is a highly resistant bacterial strain (Mycobacterium Marinum) and the only 'cure' is multiple doses of antibiotics for 3 + months depending on it's severity. Before I take this course I am getting a punch biopsy done to confirm! BUT BE AWARE! For more information - FlippersandFins.net Fish Tank Granuloma
  13. Hey guys, I have decided to upgrade my planted 4 foot tank and bought myself a 6ft monster! I currently have plants in my 4ft and it looks nice, all healthy using aquasoil as substrate, dosing each week with Seachem flourish and excel daily, but I've decided if I am going to set up my dream tank filled with heaps of plants I think it's finally about time to get into C02. Can anyone give me any tips on using it? I am trying to find a good quality unit or is it better to source the parts separately? I have noticed some products on the market are only up to a certain amount of litres and I can't find anything that's probably more suitable for my size set up. Anyone know of any great C02 units or where I can get them from for a tank 680l with a larger cylinder capacity to hold more C02 so I don't have to refill too often.
