  1. Just wondering what would be better? I would like a 3ft tank as I already have a 4ft. I was looking at one that's around 250 litres/66 gallons which is in the middle of the 55-75 gallon recommendations I've read for a single Oscar. Would this be suitable or would a 4ft tank that holds a similar amount of water be better? Cheers
  2. I am interested in purchasing a 2nd hand marine setup all ready to move on growing coral and adding fish. Needs to be minimum 4ft with full cabinet. Ideally sump/skimmer/chiller/lighting etc. Will consider live rock and stock also. If anyone knows of any systems under $2,000 that are available please contact me. Must be Gold Coast or Brisbane (ideally south).

  9. Ok so the tank is 120cm x 30cm (w) x 35cm (H). Unusual size The substrate is a mix between river sand and bunnings play sand (PAIN IN THE BOTTOM).

Feedback would be awesome This one is all my work, adam has not even seen the tank yet.
  10. I just got a new 4ft, and this one will be going in my room. So I want one fish (not an oscar) that has a bit of a personality. I would love a saratoga but they would get a bit to big wouldnt they? I would love suggestions please.

  17. Hey guys, Bought a new 4ftx2ftx2ft setup off a friend last weekend. Set it up, with sump, all media and fully plumbed (4500 ltr/hour pump), and it's running great, but.... Have been racking my brain trying to think of what i want to put in it, So heres the ideas i have come up with so far... I've always wanted to do a native tank, so i was thinking about putting in some rainbows, kinda want to try to keep it as close as i can to my local streams/rivers. 4 to 6 Crimson-spotted rainbows (Melanotaenia duboulayi) 4 to 6 Ornates (Rhadinocentrus ornatus) ...or more of both if they will fit was toying with the idea of a tandanus or 2, but have heard they grow rather large. or possibly a couple of blue yabbies. The other idea i had was to put in a couple of archers but atm i have no hood, and have to do some modifications to the glass lids, or get some new ones cut, to get a better fit. Am open to suggestions, the only stipulation from the wife is some of them need to be "pretty" Tim....
  18. hey guys here is some updated pics of my 4ft american setup thanks for looking tyler
  19. Im very proud of this tank, had him a while and i've now got 12 corydoras trilineatus, and a handful of longfin comman bristle nose. Also got the odd swordies and guppies hanging round. So decided to do it up... Got river pebbles covered with sand as a way to hold my plants rooted, heaps of anubis on driftwood too, finished doing this up yesterday And already my longfins have breed and I have eggs, first time too! Didnt take a pic of the other end of tank as I have fry savers set up... What do you guys think ? Jemma
  20. as i statedd coldwater aggressive fish for a 4ft?
  21. I rescaped it. It needed a good clean and i wanted something a bit different. So no terracotta in here this time
  22. So i have my 1200x350x700 (LWH) about 350L, and at the moment im running an Aquaone aquis 1200. It doesnt seem to be doing as good a job as id like, so im looking to upgrade. Its an American display tank, with a festae (8cm), Brazilensis (13cm) and soon to be a gold sev and EBJD if i can find one, as well as 5 clown loaches (6-7cm), 2 plecos (28cm sailfin, 17cm goldspot...they shit everywhere!!!), and about 7 various bristlenose around the 5-8cm mark (pepps, albino & common). This said, the tank gets pretty messy, so what would be my ideal option of filtration, and please refrain from saying an fx5 cause thats the obvious choice. Cheers, Corbi.
  23. To anyone that has or has had a sunsun; On the top of the hood there's a little panel that comes off and inside there's like a push button that clicks in and out. Does anyone know what this is for?
