  10. Anyone keeping medium/large Australian bass? What are you feeding them apart from pellets and they happy by them selves or in a small group?
  11. Hey guys just recently bought 10 peacock bass at around 5 cm and thought id do a thread on their growth rate, I have raised fry before so I know they grow quick but this time I'm doing it a little different. Different diet and bigger tank. I will update each month with some pics and just and update on their diet and behavior. Currently in an 8ft with water temp at 28 degrees , ph is 7.4 and I've added a nice big peice of drift wood with Anubis as I found last time it brought the green out more and just somewhere for them to hide Their current behavior is standard for bass this size and they just hide and sook until feeding time. I've also attached a photo of the father as he has beautiful colors Their diet for this first week has been brine shrimp and bloodworms , will be moving them onto new era very soon as it's a softer pellet for them to start with.
  12. so we all know its a bad bad thing when a wholesaler gets their grips on an exotic species usually in the next year or two to follow the market is flooded and demand is gone being able to pick up peacock bass at $8 each is ridiculous, so silver arows? just take a gander over at bayfish... the good news is it probably wont be long until we can all afford a silver or two in our tanks thoughts?
  13. .Looking for peacock bass breeders around brisbane any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  14. .Are these around in aus? look much like our mangrove jack but different
  15. .Hey guys I brought myself a peacock bass today at a local pet shop it is only small, once I put it in my tank it has just sat at the bottom of the tank and has not moved. I even tried putting a few blood worms in to entice it but didn't budge. Any ideas ? thanks
  16. Both male haha they might have been displaying for the girls there were a batch of eggs a few days later Both
  17. Hey every one I need some help with my peacock bass so I purchased 12 p bass about a month and a half ago and had the intention of selling on about half of them down the track. So about 3 weeks ago I lost one and the week after another and just today I noticed another resting on the bottom breather heavy and darker in colour and can't for the life of me figure out what's happening I did feed them some live gudgeons about a week before I lost the first one which might point towards parasites or worms 5x2x2 tank with 700mm sump/ internal filter 2x jäger 300w Size. 10-12cm Tank mates. Large gold spot Have been doing frequent water changes every 2-3 days at the moment. I have been using water out of my laundry tub mixer and bringing it to around 26/27 degrees for the water changes Feeding carnivore and hikari koi pellets more carnivore pellets at the moment Ammonia. Very little to none Nitrite. Very little to none Nitrate. 10-20 ppm Ph. 7.2-7.6 Any advice will be much appreciated
  18. Hey all, Being an avid bass angler and always aiming for that big 50cm girl it got me wondering if anyone had kept an aussie bass that long in an aqaurium that it's reached a large size like 45cm+? Being the slow growers they are I know not many people would get em this big but was just curious to see how big people have gotten them! I have a 15cm one at the moment which I bought from mappins about a week and a half ago and he's still quite shy and skittish and hides and sulks when I'm near the tank. I've kept bass before and they've always become pretty tame and followed me round the tank within the first week or so. Wondering how I can bring him out of his shell a little or is it just a matter of playing the waiting game and having him come around in his own time? Thanks for any input, Andrew.
  19. I've recently picked up a bunch of Peacock Bass which are roughly at the 5 cm mark. I've been feeding them bloodworm and some small cichlid pellets which I had sitting around although they won't eat the pellet. I did a little research into which pellet would suit them better but I still wouldn't mind some advice from some people who keep them. Cheers
  20. I need any advice on keeping my Peacock bass fry alive and growing Any advice is appreciated. I have had my first batch going for 3 weeks now, I have been feeding them newly hatched live baby brine shrimp and pureed blood worms. They were going fine until Tuesday just gone they have been dropping like flies. after they became free swimming I took the parents out and on Wednesday I noticed more dying so with there water I moved them into a smaller tank (2foot) with just a sponge filter. The fry look like they are going weak, struggling to swim and dying. I have been feeding them at least 4 to 5 times a day minimum parents bred in a 5x2x2 now they are in a 8x2.5x2 Thanks Luke
  21. I've recently bought 20 juvie bass @ 5-7 cm (my first real go). One week has past I've noticed that the growth of some has been 1-2 cm. Is this common? They are getting fed very well in a 6x2, temp is at 31 deg (plenty of aeration) Do bass normally slow down at a certain size(if so what length?) or do they only slow down due to tank size limiting their growth? Thanks in advance
  22. Hey all, I have a 4x2 and I'm looking to get some peacock bass fry. I know the 4x2 isn't big enough for the peacock bass but I'm just curious as to how long the4x2 would last before I start looking to upgrade. Any helps appriciated! Thanks andrew
