  1. My girlfriends bullrout passed away this morning, due to an infection that seems to pop up in her tank only. R.I.P Winston. In an attempt to move him to a hospital tank, to treat him, he managed to hit me. I must say that it was one hell of an experience. Anyone else got bullrout tails of pain and heartache.
  2. Hey all, I have a 6x2x2 with an external canister filter and an internal jet filter with an air hose keeping everything oxygenated. I have 3 barra around the 8-10cm mark who are happy as Larry, an archer fish who doesn't stop all day, a native rainbow fish who hangs round the surface keeping the film clean and my two little bullrout, about 10-12. Good rock cave and drift wood set up with numerous options to hide. Oh, and about 10 wild caught fresh water shrimp who have made the rocks and logs their home. Before and after work I check my freshwater bait trap for guppies and shrimp to ultimately meet their doom. The bigger shrimp survive and find a place to hide, which is what I was hoping would happen so my bullrout have something to stalk at night. I'm not sure if my bullrout are eating at all. The barra demolish 20 guppies with in minutes so the bullrout don't get a chance so I was hoping that the shrimp who make it to the sand would eventually get eaten by the rout but I don't think it'd happening. Is there anyone who keeps bullrout that can help me? Should I get a long set of tweezers and try enticing them with dead food incontinence of their nose? Thanks in advance. Ps. The water is fine for the fish, I get it checked every two weeks and I do my own testing in between...

  7. hey Everyone im new to your forum and look forward to sharing with everyone and happy to take some needed advice as a newbie to native pet fish. ive been fishing for many years and has been my main hobby now and since i started. however i have started a light freshwater natives tank consisting of a bass barra pleco. only about 8-10 each, pleco is smaller. and just went down to my creek to collect my fish traps and shrimp pots to have found a bullrout in 1, Awesome ive been wanting one for ages after a mate showed me his eating a large shrimp. he is about 15cm in length and had a shrimp in his gob haha. after putting him into the new tank ive notices he was a bit drowsy and leaning to one side a bit. he is extremely full of shrimp by the looks of it so i wasn't surprised by his behaviour, however on closer inspection ive noticed some parasitic worms on his tail and body. ive been reading some of the other responses to worms on freshwater natives and did some googling, however i have been unable to find the correct match to the parasitic worm on my newly caught bullrout :/ they're about 1cm long (varying) and black with small white stripes so not anchor worms. they don't seem to have caused any swelling to him but worried if it will hurt/kill him :/ im sure someone on this forum could help me out Cheers Hamish
