  1. Hey My name is Nathan and I have a 4ft marine tank with a breeding pair of ocellaris, they have only recently started breeding with 2 failed attempts at having any hatch. This it the 3rd batch of eggs and the female seems to have the eggs coming out of her "vent" but seem to be stuck as they have been hanging there for a couple of days, and has stretched her vent to approx 3-4mm in size. I was wondering is there anything I can do to help her like maybe try to gently baggage them out or cotton bud then gently to try and remove them? She was my very first fish from 4yeara ago and I really dont want to loose her!! Can anyone please help?!

  5. Hey guys, So i found a clutch of eggs in the middle of my tank, so not sure what happened there but either way... So i put them in an egg tumbler that i got off jgarner But despite people claiming the egg tumblers have a 100% survival rate, when i got up this morning alot of the eggs had white fungus on them. So my question is.. what more can i do to ensure survival?? I dont really wanna loose a whole clutch of peppermints. Cheers Alex
  6. Morning everyone. I obtained 10 beautifull JD's off Henk last weekend, apparently they should be splits. Anyways I noticed a female heavily guarding a rock structre for the last couple of days but her boyfriend doesnt seem super interested in her, so after some good advice from Dan (neyund2) I added some mangrove roots to add naturall barriers. Came down this morning and she has laid eggs all over the rock top, I'm just wondering if these eggs are good or not? as they arn't yellow like a bristlenose's but more kinda clearish, they aren't mouldy or white yet, but I'm wondering if they have been fertilised?? Also if I were to move the eggs(on rock) with the pair or just female to another tank to hatch and raise the fry would this upset the pair or female that she wouldnt care for the eggs/fry? Thanks guys, sorry again for the novel. This is my first attempt breeding Americans (well really any fish other than catfish) So any help is greatly appriciated.

  8. I think my Kribensis is egg bound? Does anyone know how I can help her? I have heard a couple of stories about using tweezers to help release the eggs but I not sure if that is the right thing to do? If anyone could help me out I would really apprecaite it.

  14. Just bought a tumbler from jgarner447, great design, anyway, i am just wondering how many eggs I can put in here. I have 20 lombardoi eggs with tails in there at the moment and have just discovered that my blue zeb is holding too. Looks like about 20 or so eggs as well. Would these be right in the same tumbler as the first lot are only just starting to change into fish. Also how much water movement should there be in the tumbler? shold they be constantly tumbling or just moving every so often. Thanks.

  18. Hey guys, Just wondering if an African Butterfly Fish would be able to co-exist with my fully grown cardinals, and black neons? Ive heard they wont pester anything that hovers below the surface, however I remain skeptical. Any thoughts? Also, I was recently told about Egg Crates. I feel silly asking, but what are their purpose? I cant seem to find any information on them anywhere. Ive heard they can distribute light across aquariums, act as stands for rockery or be used as grids to stop jumping fish. Is this right? Thanks in advance. Chris

  20. Quick question of a egg tumbler. I have a mixture of larvae and eggs. I have set up an ice-cream container (in the tank of course), with a floating strainer holding the eggs etc, and have placed an air stone under it (the strainer). IS this suitable, and what sort of air movement is needed for best results. Cheers
  21. Hello all, after doing some searching in this forum i have found nothing on egg tumblers.... I have tried to create a few different styles and all have failed What does everyone else do? Does anyone have some designs? pics? ideas? anything would be great cheers Nick
  22. Hey all, Got bored a few weeks ago and headed to ebay as you do. Ended up buying an egg tumbler from america. got it yesterday and milked one of my holding girls today. at this stage seems to be working quite well. Anyone else bought one of these and used it? success rates? Trent
  23. Does anyone know where to find plastic egg crate (ie the stuff you see in office ceilings protecting the fluoro lighting?) in the Brisbane area ? I tried at Bunnings but they didn't have any. I'm trying to make some tank dividers so I can catch the fish easier if and when I have to transfer them to a breeding/rearing tank. Catching fish in a 6 footer is rather difficult/time consuming/frustrating, as I had to take out all of the rockwork from the tank yesterday to strip a female of eggs (which I think were unfertilised anyway, but that's another story!). If anyone can point me in the right direction for the egg crates (or could even give me a better idea for a temporary tank divider) it would be very much appreciated.... Doug
  24. Left my last lot of fry in with male a bit longer than normal and both of the females are due to sparn, but havn't yet, one is very large and the other is getting bigger. Is she egg bound or will she lay the eggs ? Is there anything i can do ? No other females are like this.
