  1. Is it just my phone or has all the Australian and PNG Native section been removed? Where is the section on collecting?
  2. Johnbetta lol!!! It's best not to confuse avid fishermen and the like. What you are saying is that it's illegal to go fishing in saltwater.... Read the link I posted above. If it's not clear keep looking under the daf website. Everything is there in black and white.
  3. https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/fisheries/recreational/rules-regulations/gear-fresh-waters It's never been illegal to collect your own fish. Its the same as fishing. You can either eat your catch, put it in an aquarium or anything except sell it. You cannot collect live coral even if for own aquarium.
  4. No it's not illegal. Bag limits and methods of fishing apply. A quick google search will get you the facts. You cannot catch and sell. Collecting your own natives for the aquarium is a very rewarding and fun hobby.
  5. I wanted to post this in the Australian Native section but it looks like its been removed. I caught 4 juvenile Mouth Almighties approximately 15mm long from the Ross River in Townsville, along with a Speckled or Wilsons Goby. I got them back home to Brisbane and released them into my smaller Native community tank. Next morning, all gone!!! Now, in this tank are glassfish (adult and juvenile), Empire & Purple Spotted Gudgeons, and a Juvenile Sleepy Cod I caught in Lake Maraboon in Emerald. The biggest of these are approximately 6cm long. I wouldn't have thought any of these would touch the new fish especially when there are smaller glassfish in the tank. Oh well, lesson learned.
  6. Thanks for the detailed replies. I'm going to try tri sulfa and reduce their feeding to 1 in 3 days Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks for feedback so far. 2nd treatment of Protozin seemed to reduce it. However still present on some fish. No more deaths yet. 1. Temp varies between 24-26. 2. PH 7.2 to 7.6 3. Water change every 4 weeks or when nitrates get to about 20. 4. 540 litre tank with about 4 rainbows, 6-8 glassfish, 2 juvenile archers, 6 empire, 6 purple spot, couple of firetails, 4 gobies, couple of blue eyes and hardyheads. 5. They get fed 2 out of 3 days on brine shrimp or bloodworms or hikari carnivore pellets or flakes. Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
  8. All mine are wild caught. Have had these guys for a couple of years though. Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
  9. Hoping someone can help with treatments. Some fish get a white fungal growth, others get what looks like an exposed wound. I've lost 5 adult crimson spot rainbows over the last 3 months. They seem to get it one at a time. Their breathing rates increase and later die. So far I have tried the following: 1. Water changes. (approx 3gms salt per litre). 2. Full treatment of Protozin (correct doseage and recommended treatments). 3. Full treatment of Myxazin. 4. Commenced second treatment of Protozin. Each treatment has water changes in between. I have no carbon or purigen in the filter. Nitrates are low with the water changes. Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
  10. Nice one. Love the caboolture river and the country around it. Pitty about all the new acreage estates around its upper reaches. Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah I see him. That's fantastic! It's a long shot but he looks like one of the following gobies: False Celebes, dwarf or concave? Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
  12. Might have to put a little bit in the corner for them. Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk
