  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Snail ID Please

    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!!
  4. L201 pleco genders?

    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
  5. Cheapest place to get pleco caves

    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
  6. No facebook here either! I'll send you a PM.
  7. Hi MFF, Easy question to answer. Only one person I'd go to for what you are after. Search TropheusJim on youtube and have a look at the videos of his wild caught duboisi maswa https://www.facebook.com/jim.marinos.96 You'd need shipping from Sydney but if you are after quality fish I'd suggest contacting Jim and checking if he has any duboisi fry for sale. Cheers, Jason

  13. @raycam01_au I turned the lights out mate.. tend to get a bit more fiesty. Good to show colour and shape as they tend to swim around more and go into each others territories. "SORRY... didn't realise this video was so dark, it looked OK on the phone." I've deleted it so people don't waste their time downloading!
