  1. Where is the best aquarium store in Brisbane? I have been doing most of my purchases from Exotic Connections Rocklea near the Brisbane Markets. But I find that store to be small and does not have any variety. Its stock is alright, but the variety is limited to the basic freshwater fish, and even lacks some of those. I live in the south west suburbs (Indooroopilly, Toowong) etc. I don't want to travel to the outer rural regions. Whilst on a holiday to melbourne, I visited the LFS, it was 80m long, underground store with so many tanks, so many varieties of fish, aswell as supplies etc. They even sold rare bettas for $25. The type you get imported for $40+. And it made me sad because I have never seen any shops like those in brisbane that I know of. Also would like some cherry shrimp... any sellers close to those suburbs mentioned? reply below
  2. As anyone knows quality fish food is ridiculously expensive 50 plus per kg. Very easy and cheap method it making your own is to buy a cheap grinder, mine came from Kmart for $35. Last night I done a 4kg batch of food they go nuts for for less than 12 per kg. I have been doing this for the last year without any issues, recipe always varies but always similar Get Zucchini Carrot Fish filets Garlic Prawn Marinara mix Salt And use some of your usual pellets to improve consistancy Food Grinder [ATTACH=CONFIG] From here it about half an hours work, the smaller you cut the meat up the quicker the grinder will work Befor you know it you have this Then product ready to freeze

  4. Hey everyone I'm looking for about 50m of 50x50x2mm thick box section steel anyone know some places north brassy that sells it cheap
  5. Sorry I have not been on much - Telstra has been fixing the problem for some time now....... I think our hobby has a problem. Our desire for cheap fish. Downwards pressure on price means the seller has to source fish cheaper to meet the demand. The end result is we get the bottom of the barrel fish. We do not get the best, we get at best the mediocre. I have heard people say that Asian fish are not good quality. However when I have been in Asia I have seen great fish. Maybe our desire for cheap means we do not get the quality fish sent here. If goes further to the commercial breeder. The breeder to make a dollar when downwards pressure is on may not be culling as he would desire. He needs to raise enough dollars to cover his cost of raising the fry. This may not affect the hobbyist, who is not as concerned about profit, but does those who depend on the $$$$$ There are places you can get quality at a great price, but do not expect it to be cheap! Remember you do get what you pay for!

  24. For those that do not rely on algae and there are many of you, this is for you! Lanthanum chloride results from use of my own and speaking to others that swears by it for their phosphate issues as well. This common form of salt that is used as a chemical binder that they use in the pool industry is sometimes labelled starver. It may also be part of the make up of phos buster,no one knows for sure. What it does is precipitates phosphate into an inert compound in the aquarium rendering the phosphate harmless in a very short time. From my playing with this in my tubs with all kinds of feeding regimes, life forms and extra polluting left over foods including results from two others that use it and the use of rowaphos etc,etc,this is what I have found. The use of starver is extremely affective and should be used via heavily diluting it in RO water and adding this liquid into a filter sock or behind a filter barrier slowly and in small doses so that it does bind with phosphate. This gentle approach should be used any way but more so if you have small gill plated fish in particular like the zebrasoma species of tangs being the worst for reacting to this via aquarium algae up taking the substance and they consume it creating a toxic build up in them and their possible reaction from their small gill functions, either way it needs to be used gently. If you use it to rapidly to remove the phos the sudden reduction of phos can put stress on clams coralline algae’s and basic algae. The more interesting aspect of this was the speed at which the cyano croaked that I had in patches on the plastic walls of the tubs intentionally for this. So for quick absolute phos removal I used starver with absolute perfection with sps in there as well as most everything else and the on going after some weeks of this to get rid of most of the phos that is leaching from bio medias. I tried some of the guys rowaphos and three other brands and the one that was the best for on going support was the salifert phosphate killer type of gfh. It was gentle,easy to use and kept the phos under 0.03 down to 0.01. Oh and I tried the hanna and salifert tests against each other and the salifert was the same as the hanna each and every time. One of our guys that has a ton of sps he buys from cairns marine that are always thriving with a lot of frags and amazing growth rates, he has used the starver and never had an issue, but remember to use it gently!
