  1. Hi Steve & Jules, Sorry for the slow response, all the adults are in the pics above, there are 5 adult longfins, there are a few larger sub adults in with the fry, these are in the second last pic (9) Average size of the fry would be easy 3.5cm + i can take some more pics if you like.
  2. *UPDATE* - I've had 2 offers, (one for the adults and one for the fry), both of which i agreed to, but sale ever eventuated. All fish are still for sale. price for the lot is now $400 or $100 for the adults and $300 for the fry
  3. All 5 Adult longfin are all on hold
  4. Hi mate 

    Do you still have the Albino Longfin with spot on it 

    Also do you ever come down North lakes or brissy way

      Sorry mate all the adult longfins are on hold

  5. Hi all, I've decided to have a break from BN for a while and wish to send my fish on to new homes. i got individual pics of most the adults but i missed a few. im located at Currimundi on the sunshine coast. these fish have bread like crazy in the past, i've previously sold 2 batches of fry, 400 fish in one lot and 800 in the second, however in more recent time i've had all the males in a take together as i havent wanted to deal with another batch of fry. for anyone that buys bulk ill throw in a 100L fish transport tub. 1- ill start off with the big one, im fairly sure he his the reason a few of the other's fins are a little worse for ware. $20 for him and the rest of the adults are $15 ea or make me an offer as i want them gone 2 2- this guy looks a little odd these days as a few pigment spots have appeared on him about a year ago 3- this one look like he's had a bit of a tough time in with the other males so would appreciate some room 4- common LF, again his fins are a bit worse for ware 5- another smaller common male 6- large common LF female 7- smaller common FL female 8- another common LF female 9- in here there are 5 or 6 smaller females and some of the fry, there are approx 170 fish. Fry are a mix of common and albino, some normal and some long finned. $225 10- last pic, another tub of fry, approx 150 fish. Fry are a mix of common and albino, some normal and some long finned. $200
  6. The stuff from bunnings is normally pre cut in lengths and coiled up. The problem is, it's usually kinked at least once... Drives me nuts! Best to try and find somewhere that sell it off the roll.
  7. I really thought this thread would have got more replies... I really like the idea of being able to turn up the flow rate as I add tanks to raise fry, the when I sell them I can shut the tanks down and dial the pump back
  8. I have just about the opposite situation... Mine are just about impossible to kill. Last weekend I moved my tanks around and started a new sump. 100% water change straight from the town water hose. My biggest problem was the temp shock, my system was about 25 degrees, and the new water was 20 or 21... I lost some tetras, a little loach and a small peppermint... Now still struggling to get the temp back up. I have a batch of 2cm bn and a lot of 2.5 to 3cm... Didn't see any losses... Even had 2 lots eggs in a tumbler and I think 1/2 of them hatched. My only guess is they may not be getting enough food, if your getting heaps hatch... They'll plough through food, With warm water you can easily feed 4 algae wafers morning and night. I have drift wood and try to have the odd plant, more surface area for the little suckers... But no gravel
  9. Yeah I'm planning in using 25mm poly pipe for the bulk then for each outlet I've got a reducing T to 13mm and a 13mm poly valve.
  10. I'm thinking of getting one too so would love to hear some feed back on the waveline or other 10000lph + dc pumps
  11. I've often wondered this myself, but my limited basic knowledge and understanding of how long the air would last and how it would be easily regulated, has restricted further exploration. not to mention I acquired a hiblow 40 that I'm continually plugging additional air driven equipment into and I feel I'm still far from finding its limits. "If" an air compressor were to be used, for me the most obvious issue would be to ensure that there was enough tank capacity to ENSURE that the compressor would not fire up for a refill whist you are sleeping! A friend of mine owns a compressor of this design (sadly it isn't for fish usage) however it's design is 2 large airs tanks(approx full size oxy bottles) filled by a comparatively small compressor (I'll try and get a pic over the weekend). For me this ideal solution is where the theoretical concept seems to go pear shaped in reality. As my friend had his compressor custom made.... At mates rates, and I think the real world cost of this solution would see it quickly excluded as a possibility. The other fact is the compressor takes up a heap of space when compared to and air pump. I also have no idea about the differences in efficiency. That said I'll try and pic of what I think would be ideal and a cost estimate
  12. I'd say yes, often a big water change will get my me going, and they are happier when the water is 25+
  13. Great to see all the generous offers!!

  15. you probably wont find many people who have had tanks from both, I don't think you'll got wrong either way. I've used Dennison in the past for some breeding tanks, they just breeding tanks but they are better built than any "off the shelf tank". if... scratch that.. when I need more tanks ill be heading to Dennison again.
