  1. Still some available
  2. Ki Kaida, Did you end up getting rid of everything? Cheers, Jason
  3. New batch ready for sale. 3-5cm sizes. $25 each or 6 for $120.
  4. Hi All, I have some L270 Chocolate Zebra Plecos for sale. Some good size ones in the mix but most are around the 4-6cm size. $30ea or 6 for $150. I'll sort out some photos over the weekend. Location - North Lakes Contact via PM or email burtbouvier@hotmail.com Cheers, Jason
  5. WOW! Fantastic. That's an easy question now.... keep buying as many as you like until your happy with stocking amounts. Can't wait to see some more photos as you put more and more fish in there Cheers, Jason
  6. Hi @wadedidit. Agree 100% with @gingerbeer and @MFF tetras go crazy with numbers... in a 6x2x2 the more the better! I'm surprised nobody has asked what filtration you are running on your tank? That would be the first question I'd ask when answering a question about stocking numbers. I had a display tank 5x2x700high with a dozen discus, 30 rummy nose and about 60 cardinals (was hard to count exact numbers as I'd lost track of what I'd put in there). I'm also of the opinion that greater numbers look better than the same numbers with a mixture of tetras. Best of luck with your tank and your next shopping trip Cheers, Jason
  7. Apple snail... a million times easier to control in an aquarium than the Malaysian trumpet snail. I swear they'd survive life in the Chernobyl reactor!!
  8. Hi and welcome to the site. Probably not going to like this but I'd actually say all males I'd love to see photos of the three of them from underneath, especially the one on the bottom in the first photo (this is the only one that I'd possibly question but it's still a pretty consistent taper from head to tail). I use a combination of top photos and more accurately vent sexing. The males have a more pointed genital while the females are rounded or even tubular in shape. Reminds me to catch my L201's at some stage and sex. Cheers, Jason
  9. Hi Frank, I keep a variety of sizes in all my L tanks and let them decide on which they like. I suppose odd size ones don't look the best and can certainly see an advantage of having all the same size. I will say that my L134's and L066's I rarely see in the 12 x 5 x 2.5's (in saying that I've never given them the option of just that size). The L201's/L270's seem to use this size the most. I'd perhaps suggest on maybe looking at a couple of slightly bigger in 14 x 6 x 3.5's or I even use the medium oval shaped for the larger L's and bigger peppermints. I also have had a lot of success with the rectangular style caves. I'm pretty sure most of mine were Zig Zag brand which are a darker colour to the others but I'm not even sure if you can still get this type anywhere. Best of luck. Cheers, Jason
  10. I know someone with truck loads of them adults and fry! They'll go nicely in the stingray tank Ray. Missing the plates.... but must admit the salt tank does look the goods!!
  11. @Jase86uxb Have never tried the Shogun but always kept eyes and ears out on any comments I see about them. Schego heaters are the beez neez but we aren't all made of cash unfortunately
  12. Jager 300w will do the job. I've got a Jager 300w on a 630L aquarium set @ 29deg and it holds it at that higher temp. Wouldn't need it that high for africans. Also assuming that Gladstone's min temps would be a couple of degrees warmer than down here in Brisbane so the difference between room temp and required aquarium temp would be less.
  13. I guess that’s the advantage of different opinions [emoji106] Never had that problem (yet). I’ve got smaller fish in with my geos than apistos that they’ve never looked twice at. I love keeping apistos with them as a size and colour contrast. Had plenty of people visit and see first hand them happy together. Just my experience... not saying it’s right or wrong. That’s what fish keeping is all about... asking questions and finding out what works for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hi Harris, No problems at all, they work perfectly together. I've kept various types of apistogrammas with geos. The apisto's do a great job of keeping the geos away during and after spawning. And vice versa, if the geos happen to spawn they quickly learn to stay clear of that area. Best of luck. Cheers, Jason
  15. Not much more I can add except I agree with Paul and Lloyd. Impossible to say any Tropheus won't cross breed from my experience. I've read lots of articles and spoken to people that have moorii's in with sp black or duboisi and say they have no issues. Personally I'm just a fan of having one type per tank. I always figured I had lots of $$$ tied up and didn't make any sense to me to risk mixing variants together. Just my 2c worth
