  1. Just need to share my love for one of the great misunderstood cichlid families from the great Lake Tanganyika.... Yep its the Lepidiolamprologus family... Have to say I really am appreciating this group of super aggressive(ok you do "if your lucky" get the odd peaceful individual)underwater hunters and I don't know if its the fish or the challenge the fish themselves pose when it comes to their care and maintenance that has me hooked..either way as adults they are striking fish and will demand your viewing time when looking at a tank..I prefer the bigger open water members of the family personally but they are a very unique and interesting group of fish...from the big Profundicola to the little shell dwelling Hecqui.. Here is a quick excerpt from Practical Fish Keeping: "There are currently seven(?) valid species in Lepidiolamprologus: attenuatus, cunningtoni, elongatus, kendali, mimicus, nkambae and profundicola. All share the same elongate shape and predatory mouth, and range from 15-30cm/6-12” in length, so large as Lamprologine cichlids go. They become impressive as they grow and mature, with highly visible teeth, and a 30cm L.elongatus must be a terrifying sight for any small fish unlucky enough to share the same habitat." Well now here's a look at some of the family members.. Lepidiolamprologus Profundicola (believed to be here in Oz and if so very very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Elongatus (very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Kendali (uncommon/rare) Lepidiolamprologus Nkambae (rare/very rare) Very hard to spot differences between Kendalli and Nkambae but DNA tests prove they are separate varieties. Lepidiolamprologus Attenuatus (very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Cunningtoni (very rare) Lepidiolamprologus Mimicus (not available!?) Lepidiolamprologus Kamambae (newly discovered and not available!) And here's some of the smaller guys....yep still with some serious attitude Lepidiolamprologus Lemairii (uncommon) Lepidiolamprologus Pleuromaculatus (very rare/not available!?) Lepidiolamprologus Boulengeri (uncommon) Lepidiolamprologus Hecqui (uncommon)
  2. We have some super cheap prices top quality cichlid rocks/breeding wedges and bn logs and logs starting from $6.95 less your discount. To fill you in on the details we have been dealing with ZigZagFish caves and rocks for some time now and his designs were taken to China to be reproduced. As a business that heavily supports Australian Made we are doing a huge push to make sure we do not loose a Australian Business due to his designs being replicated. The person behind ZigZagFish has a fish hobbyist background and pottery is in the family and all came about over 5 years ago when he made some caves for himself and people then wanted what he was making and turned it into his own business and works full time doing it. He built it from the ground up. These are hand made BN logs now starting from $6.95 less your QLDAF discount. They are terracotta and fired at 1100 degrees which means you get a top quality long lasting product. Help get behind us on this as it is becoming more common to have Australian designs taken to China and we loose jobs and businesses. Here is a link to all the ZigZagFish Caves and Logs. ZigZagFish Breeding Logs and Caves We have over 300 more caves and rocks coming in another two weeks so if we run out - which will happen, they will not be too far off. Here is a couple of examples of his items.

  4. I am really pissed off at the moment. I have had 1 Red Devil, 3 Oscars, 2 Pleco's and 1 Convict in the same tank for over a year and have never had much of a problem with them together except the RD being a little pushy. I came home the other day to find my RD has bashed the absolute **** out of my Convict, (probably my favorite). I know Convicts are cheap and some people would probably think pfft he's just a cheap fish but I really liked him because of his docile temperament and just the fact that he looks cool. I pulled him out of the tank and have put him in a tank on his own but he is really not doing well at all. He has this mucousy looking like substance over his body and looks like he is not going to survive. Can anyone please tell me what I can do for him because it's really not looking good.
  5. Unfortunately a little to the right of the flashes so not perfectly lit but I think the attitude captured in this action shot more than makes up for it. I'll throw in this one from last night for something a little different too.

  9. Hey guys I'm about to move my afri juvies into a bigger tank. And thought it a good time to pull out any that arent going to fair well long term. I have 4 Pulpican males only 4cm long, but these guys go at it non-stop amongst themselves. Its all harmless atm. Everyone else gets along fine. Are these guys in general known for their aggressiveness more so than other mbuna?? If so Ill remove a few of them now to save the trouble later. Thanks Matt.
  10. Today my black ghost knife fish was half eaton before i got to it by my silver dollar. Is this normal for a silver dollar to eat other fish? Is it because i dont feed it enough or is it just natural for a silver dollar to eat other fish? All the information i read about silver dollars didnt mention about eating other fish. Richie
