  1. My Tank: When they were bubs (3-4 months ago..?): Bit older: Now (the keeper):
  2. Last nightat 8PM i purchased 4 blue rams from SSDISCUS. I came home from work today at 5:30 to discover this. ( if you look closely you can see the egg shoot protruding from her body). On one of the leaves there are tiny dark red/brown eggs. Its a testiment to the health and quality of shauns stock IMO. Great guy. Anywho, this amazed me. I dont expect the eggs to last, as there are loaches in the tank. But still pretty cool! Thought id share. PS sorry for the Iphone pictures, its all i have right now PPS i included a photo of his amazing discus as well. Just because i can

  8. hey all, i bought a breeding pair a little over a week ago. After watching them dance for a few days i discovered they have laid eggs on the side of a leaf of a palm tree ornament! This is the first time i have ever bred any fish i was just wondering if anyone has experiance with blue acaras and had any tips to ensure the survival of the fry? Should the parents be seperated away from the fry after a certain amount of time? Any help appreciated :)
  9. First , Hello All I have browsed a few forums and subscribed to a few but never posted until now. I have a 3ft planted tank with 5x Gourami, 1x Angel, 2x Ottos, 1xCAE, 2xSEA 1x Blue Ram. I'm running an Ehim 2135 Ehim heater and diy co2. All seems to be doing fine. However this post is not about my 3ft its my 600x330x330 home made tank, I running an internal powerhead with a FoamFilter attached and heater. I read about these little stunners called Blue Rams, I went a looking and seen Ble and gold and neon Rams. the Blue Rams took my eye. So i decided ( after a lot of reading ) to try keeping/Breeding them. In My 2ft tank i had 4xColumbian Tetra and a few barbs in so I relocated them and scaped it a little with a few hiding places and tester the water { 6.7PH - 34C - GH 80 mg/l - KH 30 mg/l } . Im new to testing and reading test results but all seems close to what I need. I read a lot of Different views about water changes. Normally i do 30% weekly and seems to be keeping other tanks nice, Rams like good water quality so more water changes ? I popped out and purchaced 2x Blue Rams Im pretty sure that one is female but the other will not show me his fin properly so I cant be 100% sure, time will tell. I uploaded a few picks, Please tell me what you think. Female > http://img191.imageshack.us/i/ramfemale.jpg/ Full tank shot > http://img11.imageshack.us/i/img0313ck.jpg/ Tank on stand > http://img651.imageshack.us/i/tankonstand.jpg/ I will update my first thread when there is more to see or hear, when the rams settle I will get some better shots. If anyone thinks i could be doing something better, or just from experience a different way then please feel free to comment > As i said i new to Rams, if they wont breed it will not be the end of the world but it would be nice .. thankyou in advance for comments and advice
  10. hey every on i was just wondering if ther is a easy way to start a colony of aficans as i am trying to start two colonys of different fish and i am looking for a 5ft fish tank with stand light and hood near the ipswich region Thanks heaps
  11. Hey I bought 6 blue saph angels at the auction last night and over today I have lost two of them, did a 50% water change before putting them in, and acclimated them over 45 minutes, ph, nitrites, nitrates all stable. Lost two angels but the two discus I got are fine as are the cardinals, whips and pepps? They are a little cramped right now but I'm supercharging a tank cycle right now in another tank I set up last night with sponges, an internal from another tank and the half a tank of water i took out of the ones I put them into. Double dosed the fresh water with prime last night and I also dosed them with melafix around lunch time today. Really don't want to lose any more of these beautiful fish. I've also thrown in my battery air pump to help oxygenate the water since they have been gasping at the surface Any and all help is appreciated, Cheers, Chester

  24. Hey all, Today I walked into the fish room to see my blue ram pair with a cloud of fry around them, I then saw the mother picking them off one by one So I got the fry into thier own tank in about 3.5 seconds lol I put them in a tank with the same water and a sponge filter. They were all a bit shocked at first, sitting on the bottom but they are starting to liven up. Anyway these are by far the smallest fry I have ever tried to raise, I need some help with, well everything. I tried feeding frozen spirulina brine shrimp and crushed nls grow. They havent had a good go at it yet but I'm hoping they will. I'm just after any tips and advice on raising fry so small. Cheers
