  14. Just to let the ANGFA members know, the field trip to the sunshine coast this Sunday (21st April 2013) is still on. We will be going to lower Martins Creek. THis is the creek the runs through Buderum Falls (see first photo of the falls i took last weekend) The second site is the South Maroochy River below the Wappa Falls (see otehr photos). Should be a good trip, finishing with a BYO picnic/BBQ at Wappa Dam at 1pm. Hope a few members can come along and see what we can find after the recent flooding. The creeks certainly look in good condition and there are plenty of regular suspects around (rainbows and gudgeons).

  22. Another rewarding and down right fun month of aandtsociety free diving marine fish and invert collecting trips in Brisbanes south of Aus and some scuba diving as well. We got some video of friendly manta ray we swam with and a shy leopard shark and heaps of underwater pics. There were five trips we have actually completed threads on this month and two were simply fantastic conditions. Two trips were in Open Ocean,one standard depth trip at 7 to 17 metres deep, one low tide trip and the other to a very lovely club spot in only 1 to 3 metres of water alive with fish and corals. These are just a small amount of the pics copied over from the clubs site for all to see some of our collecting trip and fun dive pics for March.
  23. Another great trip and an equally beautiful day. There are more trips to come out soon and we are having a trip to in about 2 hours. This time a few clowns were the order of the day. Firstly the (perideraion) pink clowns, we call them skunk clowns, were not originally noticed as there colours blend in so well with in the large bubble anemones that they prefer to inhabit, so they were the last ones noticed,they were in around 35 feet. The brown clowns were from a group of around 12 all up, as they don’t seem to mind living in large communities, so just a few akindynos were taken,they were in around 18 feet deep. Down a little deeper in 38 feet of water was a young couple of latezonatus clowns, luckily not to bright for latz,as they can be classed as a hard clown fish to catch in that they will run from there anemone to allude capture and you only have so long on a breath to catch them once you have lined them up. Luckily they normally use the same ways to avoid you, which can make it easy for capture with some practise. The large bubble anemones were 24 to 30 inches across and had a few pairs of porcelain crabs living at their bases, but they were not wanted so they were left, still nice to see them though. One unusual bubble was,what seemed like a combo of the maroon clown bubble,orange/red,in colour,we see a few of these and the very pretty green bubble variety as well. This one had orange bubbles and very bright green tips with red lines running up and down each bubble,you could see it as far away as the water was clear enough to see,that one will be remembered,hopefully it will be still there next time to see and find who has made it there new home for us to either look at or catch. Trying to pin down most of the clubbies to get some pics of collected species is very hard,this is all i could get from them. The latz went to Kits tank,shes quarantining them for a while before they go into the big tank. They have such a lovely nature the latz,there is rarely a single problem with them in a comunity tank. One of the akindynus and the little olivaceous from another trip went to another clubbies tank. The pinks went to Shanes tank and on and on.
  24. If any one is interested this link will take you to our water sports forum and click on the late april blue tang collecting trip and some photos and video. http://seqaquariumkeepers.aforumfree.co ... a-life-f5/
