  1. Pulled out all the plants, apparently there's only 3 corys and no Otto. Price drop remaining 11 fish for $50
  2. 2x habgood river trifasciata adult males, 1x boesmani adult male, 6 sterbai Cory (4 Adult, 2 juvie), 5 or so decent size SAE and possibly an Otto. $80 the lot, pick up Rothwell. 0413707183 text only please.
  3. Also, i bought a cheap ebay regulator and it is to performing well. I just have to tweek the needle valve once a month or so. I've heard co2 art is the bomb though.
  4. Looking good. Personally, I'm not a believer in overpriced plant substrates. I've always used a relatively coarse sand, like a river sand, pool filter sand etc. in conjuction with a quality water column fertiliser. Liverpool creek aquariums all in one being my favourite. From what i have seen, there isnt much you cant achieve with sand, a decent light and LCA all in one.
  5. A bigger diameter hose. I think mine is 25 or 32mm from bunnings, drains my tanks in no time. Either that or attach a pump to your existing hose, i vote the first option.
  6. Smiths had a very good selection last time i was there. Looks like they have a good variety in stock too ( according to their website )
  7. Hi, i have looked at Smiths. That's actually where i bought the habgood river trifasciata from. I just thought I'd try my luck with local breeders first. They don't seem to be very popular, it's looking like Smiths or Livefish might be my best bet. Cheers
  8. Hey guys, are there any rainbow breeders out there? I have two tanks that i want to stock with single species of melanotaenia in each. I am set on Herbertaxelrodi for one tank and pretty open for the other. I currently have 12 good sized Trifasciata 'Habgood River' and i am willing to swap 3-4 of them for another species, as theyre are outgrowing their 4x15x18 tank. Cheers.
  9. This is what i've been using, dosing once a week after a water change. I was also recommended the Liverpool Creek 'all in one'. I can't remember why i chose the easy life, but i've been happy with it so far ( I have java fern and anubias also).
  10. I have some you could have. Bought it from the tech den for anyone interested.
  11. I havent clad it yet. I left it open, so it was easier to spot where any leaks/bowing/movement were. After 4 or so months of trouble free operation, i will probably finish it off soon. The liner is folded in the corners, however cutting and joining wouldnt be a big job. It just increases the likelyhood of a leak if done incorrectly.
  12. Pine frame, mdf box and pond liner was the cheapest way i could find to do it (whilst still considering strength and longevity). However mine is only 1400L. I would happily build one with a much larger footprint this way, but i would definitley make a few changes if it were 1m in height+
  13. Little update. Some new additions and brighter lights, enjoy...
