  1. Hey guys and girls, Lately i've noticed Petbarn's prices and stock varieties of tropical fish have been quite good compared to fancy aquarium shops around Brisbane. What are peoples thoughts on shopping and buying fish at a petbarn rather then their LFS? They have a policy if the fish dies and your waters ok they will replace or give u a discount on your replace fish within a few weeks apparently. I know you'd never go there for the advice but the fish stock seem 90% healthy not to many dead or sickies in there and pretty clean tanks. Curious who shops there for fish or aquarium products bc of price or shorter travel times and their thoughts on how it compares to their LFS cheers,
  2. I got a free 2ft tank with a filter I bought and I would like to try a green water culture and then get some daphnia. Online there are so many instructions and each one seems different I was hoping to get some clarity here. Or would it be better to just buy a culture? Here are my questions: 1. To start the culture I read to blend some lettuce and leave it outside for 24hrs then put that into the water. Is this correct? 2. Do you need an air stone with green water? 3. Someone said to put some endlers in there? What is this for? 4. Outside in partial sun ok? 5. Will it need a heater? Any tips would be great if I can't get it to work I might turn it into a brine shrimp hatchery instead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Hi Guys, I need some help, please. I'm looking for double wire hose clamps for Marine-flex hose. Could you recommend me a place where I can buy about five of them in 40mm diameter? I have already tried the Bunnings (they have only smaller), Super Cheap Auto, Repco, Mitre 10, BCF without any success around the Logan area. I'm using the standard clamps now but for this kind of hose would be better the double wired I think. (http://www.bunnings.com.au/aquapro-12mm-hose-clamp-4-pack_p2810212) Or if you know an alternative solution I'm open for it. Thanks in advance! Regards, Jani
  5. So I'm about to buy a used filter, and I'm considering getting either an aquavital avc 1000, or an Ehiem 2213. (They will both cost the same). I haven't seen too many reviews around the internet for the aquavital, buy Ehiem is a pretty reputable brand. Which filter would you guys recommend, and is there anything else that I should bear in mind? Thanks for your help

  7. Just wondering if anyone has ever had dramas with buying a salt water tank and changing it to fresh water. In know how stupid this may sound. But wondering if the salt affects the condition of the glass and silicon differently.
  8. Evening guys. This one is for our tank building buddies, Its been a fair few years since I resealed any tanks, used to buy the stuff from mary's aquarium. Who is my best contact for this these days? On the south side would be easiest. Any help appreciated. Craigo
  9. We have a rule about buying and selling fish: The aim of this rule was very much about the folks who want to buy from a wholesaler and on sell at a profit. It does not fit in with what the board is for being for hobbyists to interact with other hobbyists. However where is the line. I have noticed with the increased number of places to buy and sell there are some who take free , or cheap fish from one location and then on sell at another for a profit. This is a tricky one, as many fold with a big spawn may have nowhere to keep them, or need to free a tank and sell at a cheap price to someone else who has space to store, and take the time to sell. Not much wrong with that. Other times fish that are perhaps intended as feeders or not sold as quality specimens, can end up being sold as quality fish. Interested in opinions and thoughts but please leave any names out of the conversation!

  12. Hi Just making inquiries as to where I can buy good quality tank water to fill my house water tanks. I am requiring soft low pH water free from the usual chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals etc. My tanks have run dry and require quality soft water by the truck load to fill my tanks. My tank water is only used for water changes and the fish I keep require soft chemical free water. Does anyone know where i can buy water to fill two 5000lt water tanks? Doing a rain dance in the backyard not working ATM and neighbors bit over me chanting LOL

  16. Hello all, I'm bout to upgrade my tank and was needing some advice. Ive been maintaining a 4ft tank with african cichlids for about a year now but still very novice to it all. I would like a tank with dimensions of 8ft x 2ft x 2ft roughly to fit in the designated space but was unsure how to go about it. Should i get custom made or is there a generic 8ft tank size that would be a cheaper option? Im a carpenter so i could make a hood and stand but is it going to be one of those things that its not worth the time to make and just easier and just as cheap to buy? Essentially i would like to buy the tank then build the rest myself. If anyone could offer some of their wisdom to steer me in the right direction it would be most appreciated. I'm located in Brisbane Thanks
  17. im buying a new eheim after having my fx5 constantly stopping and losing flow rate. im either gonna buy the classic 2260 or the pro3 2080. i would like to hear what the eheim owners have to say about both of these canisters. maybe how you have yours set up and any problems (if any) you have had with either canisters.. im buying next weekend so all comments welcome before i go and buy... thanks
  18. Hi i am looking at up grading my canister filter in my 3ft tank, its just a cheap ebay 800l a hour one. But now the tank has a decent stocking of l numbers I want to get something that i can trust and if it breaks down i can get parts aswell. It also runs and internal ehiem 2010 pickup for the mechanical side of things. so the external part will mainly be for the biological side of filtering. So if anyone has any recommendation's it would be much appreciated.

  24. Looking at building a display cabinet, and need a collection of tanks... Would like around 16x 200x200x400 (LxWxH) tanks (slightly flexible on dimensions). Since they are so small, and the same dimensions, do you all think it would be easier to buy them, get them built or buy the glass pre cut and put them together myself? I've found one place that sells them for $60 each! I can't afford $960 just for tanks... seems a bit steep. Anyone? Felix
  25. Hey Guys. I'm looking at buying a brand new 6x2x2 with a weir in the middle of the tank and drilled in the bottom. I'v been doing a bit of research on different companies and stores that make custom tank but havn't really come accross anything that stands out, so I'v decided to ask everyone elses oppinions! If you have had a tank made by a LFS or someone else that made a GREAT quality tank and fairly well priced, leave me a message telling me their store name please Cheers, Matt
