  1. A lot of the time these types of threads are left high and dry. Crosses, mislabelling or just the fact that there are too many experts with different points of view that lead to arguments. Easier to just stay out off it and not give an opinion. Nice fish by the way.

  10. I dont know anything about fish in those countries, but is it possible that there were no rainbows in that particular waterway. One water hole probably isn't enough to say there are no rainbows in the country at all. Just something to ponder until someone can confirm.
  11. @none yeah, some people would probably share your opinion, I would gladly keep a couple of natives over the bristlenose, except for my favourites, the peppermints. Maybe not the shrimp but other natives. I have only one fish in one of my 6fts that is not a peppermint, and its a purple spot. He has the tank all to himself, well kind off. He does have to share it with ALOT of peppermints.
  12. I think you already know the answer to your own question...........keep 3 creek caught shrimp or your breeding bristlenose and fry...............its a no brainer. You could always set up another tank for your shrimp as an option.

  16. Sad to hear but life still goes on...............This just means you will have more time to play around with your tanks. Thank you for giving up your free time to make sure the forum runs smoothly.
  17. yeah, I also do 50% water changes weekly on one of my tanks with out crashing the filter, I just get the feeling that this issue is still some how a filter issue. If there were any toxins leeching from the rocks the toxins would have killed all the fish and possibly the bacteria in the filter. It is possible though that the massive water changes may have saved the remaining fish. Tuff one to call without knowing exactly if it was the rocks or not.
  18. It almost sounds like you rushed it a little bit with adding all your fish. The biological bacteria may not of had enough time to build up in your canister filter, and with the massive water changes, add the possibly toxic rock and bang, disaster........New Tank Syndrome. You could also try adding something like Easy Life to your water. One thing that's also baffling me is why you use the out put of your canister filter to pump water out. Its just pumping clear, clean water out after going through the filter process meaning your just pumping the good stuff away and not really sucking the poo's and left over food out off your tank. Maybe something worth thinking about. I probably wouldn't think that the rocks are leaching toxins unless they have been bleached, collected out of a creek or you know something about the rocks that we don't. It just sounds like new tank syndrome to me. Don't worry mate we all do it at some point, even when we know we are doing it.
  19. Heat could have something to do with it, like already mentioned above, increase oxygen in the tank and see how they go.
  20. they should rename the creek, purple spot creek. Amazing, I have never seen so many purple spots together at once in the wild and no other fish. They must be living off bugs and insects that hit the water.
