  1. is that sand? if it is you might need to do some reading into anaerobic bacteria I'd recommend aqua soil, Ive always had better results using aqua soils. in a thriving planted tank gravel vacs are not possible, you'll expose the roots. pretty much the best you can do is siphon off the crud accumulating on the surface
  2. see attached document - pretty good rundown of all the fish you'll find around your area. let me know what you catch! NQDT Freshwater Fishes of the Burdekin Dry Tropics 2010.pdf
  3. Reckon it’s safe to say they’re goneskis?
  4. Take a really close look at them, if they appear to have small dots all over their body, resembling tiny air bubbles, they might have white Spot which you will have to act fast to cure. Fish typically behave this way when they’re uncomfortable, either from parasitic infection or even just change in water parameters. Also worth checking ammonia ph nitrates and nitrates as well
  5. i find the cheapest source of glass for aquarium repair is damaged aquariums on gumtree
  6. its absolutey possible. the only reasons you wouldn't do it is -because the processing power is overkill for the task at hand -and it would be just as much work in terms of programming as using a rasberry pi. -the easiest way to relay between sensors/outputs and your PC would be through a microcontroller so by the time you'd got your microcontroler you might as well just hook up a monitor and keyboard to that and start coding thats not to say you shouldnt do it though, go for gold! thats just why it probably(?) isnt a common practice. public aquariums probably use microcontrollers at each system that feed info into the local network and the information and outputs can be controlled from a PC
  7. this, go to one of those cheap variety stores craft section. you can get 500ml tubs for like $4
  8. i don't know much about heximita but i feel like fish are more susceptible to illness when they're stressed. ive bought fish home from heavily stocked tanks and they get stressed out a fair bit just because there's no other fish around like they're used too. if it is heximita then i wouldnt risk it with anything other than the cheapest natives or guppies gumtree has to offer. then of course you risk getting further infection from unquarenteened fish, so its sort of a catch 22.
  9. did you try live blackworms? mossie larva? live shrimp? get some cheap natives as dithers, maybe hes just stressed from being moved from a fry tank with 50 other fish to a lightly stocked tank. blue eyes can usually be found on gum tree around the 1-2$ mark
  10. probably popular as feeders or something
  11. yeah, my case the geos were adult size and didn't grow up with smaller fish around, im trying to remember what species apisto it was but just cant remember... (it was def one of the smaller ones) what species apisto are you thinking harris?
  12. ha, i tried it once and shortly after there was a geo getting round with a tail sticking out of its mouth
  13. bunnings rarely stock anything less than 10cm, better off looking at local nurseries
