  1. Ive grown up being told that 3cm is the size to reach before selling BN catfish, be it any type. I'm now at a stage that my peppermints are breeding like crazy, and by the time their fry are 1.5cm (in a separate tank) they have hatched another batch (in our community tank). My question is, what size is to small to sell? I understand when they have their egg sacks, thats crazy too small. But what about 1.5cm? They are bigger, eating solids.. Whats your thoughts? xx Cheers, BNgirl
  2. What large catfish ( 30cm+ ) do we have in Australia? besides the natives the only types I've seen are the occasional red tail and false tigrinus... what other species are out there?

  4. First I need a positive ID on this guy please. Second is this strange habit its started in last few weeks. Added airstone thinking it might want air, even though all other fish were behaving normally. I now believe its doing this on purpose. Barstard aims at us. Lol. Thoughts?? Watch "Squirty squirt." on YouTube
  5. Every time I buy these guys the last a day or two. My tank is is of high ph, plenty of O2 and other tank mates are happy - fronies,trophies,mbunas. Your advice is very welcomed.
