  7. Hello all Everyone know I breed Demasoni before but recently I got rid of my breeding colony and only have some fry left from the the last mouth fully. Through out the years I never came across with one that went nuts everytime the bubbles is on which very funny and weird, he can do this for hours so check it out the video. Cheers:) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_P3uDQXp0dc PS: Can anyone show me how to do the direct link? Got it!!!!!
  8. Hi all, I'm fairly new to fishkeeping, I currently have one Veiltail Betta (male) and ten Neon Tetras. Over the last week the Neon Tetras have been spawning like crazy! There are clusters of eggs everywhere, I'm not sure what I need to do. The Betta just looks at the eggs and swims away, he's not quite sure what he's looking at... LOL. Any tips on what I can do about these babies? I only have the one 20L tank, and have nowhere to put them, I don't really want to move the eggs.
  9. Ok, so after my last post I took everyones advise and sold my two beautiful Fronnies I am so so so considering selling off all my mbuna's, I think mbuna's are too aggressive for me. I always feel sorry for the under dog. I am interested in restocking as a Tang tank with: 2 x Calvus Black (already have 1) 2 x Calvus White 2 x Gold Comps 2 x Neolamprologus Tretocephalus and a few Julidochromis ornatus or something similar. Tank Dimensions are: Size: 85W x 44D x 54H Filter type: Biological Wet & Dry Filter Filter Flow: 1000L/W Its an Aquaone AR-850 all in one unit This time I really want to get the compatibility/ mix right as want a drama/aggression free tank that I can enjoy instead of stressing over all the time. Could you please comment on the above stock list. Any additions/ reductions information would be great as well as stock quantities as I dont want to over/ under stock it either. I am wanting to start with juvis (my current calvus black is only 4cm) and create a happy little community that is still colourful. I also want the whole tank to be used, not just the bottom so need something that is either a schooling fish or top/mid section fish as well. Finally, if anyone has any of these fish for sale and close to Bribie/ Caboolture could you please let me know. Thanks
  10. i have a sgjd pair that have fry and sometimes when i walk up to the tank or turn the bedroom light on they go crazy, for example they swim around really quickly and splash at the surface of the water please help i really love this pair all help is thanked Cheers
  11. Hi, Im fairly new to africans and purchased several juvi's which are now about 8cm and starting to be dominant and aggressive towards each other. My tank is 165 Litres and is stocked with the following: 2 x Cobalts 2 x Blueberry Zebs 2 x Electric Yellows 1 x Red Empress 2 x Fronnies 1 x Black Calvus (only about 4cm) I originally had 5 x cobalts and 5 x yellows but recently removed three of each to try and reduce the aggression. This has not worked and now there is one aggressive cobalt & one aggressive yellow that both rule the tank. My tank is an all male tank (except the fronnies which are I think 1m & 1f and the Black Calvus which is sex unknown) I know that africans are aggressive and in particular Mbunas, let alone all male tanks but I thought by removing the excess cobalts & yellows it would fix the problem but has not. At the moment the smaller cobalt & yellow are always hiding behind the filter and as soon as they come out the dominant cobalt & yellow chase them around the tank until the go back. Poor things, not much of a life for them. So, basically I think I have two options: Option 1/ Remove one more cobalt and yellow to reduce numbers to only one of each african. Only thing is I dont know whether the remaining cobalt and yellow will then start picking on the other fish as they dont at the moment except for the occasional nipping. Option 2/ Remove all the more aggressive fish ie. cobalts, yellows & blueberries and only keep my 2 Fronnies, Black Calvus, Ruben Red Peacock & Red Empress as these seem to be more placid. If I did this I would like to get another Calvis, maybe white but as they are so hard to sex at a young age I am worried that it would be the same sex as my existing one and the fighting would start all over again. I believe that the Fronnies & Calvus are less aggressive and would be ok together but would really appreciate someones advise. I have HEAPS of caves etc so there should be plenty of room for each fish to have its own hidey whole but it always seems like the dominant fish want 70% of the tank to themself. I know that the fronnies will outgrow a 165 Litre tank but as they are currently only about 8cm I will worry about that when the time comes. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I just want a nice happy little community that is nice to watch without worrying about a fish being harrassed constantly. Thanks

  15. Was thinking about these guys the other day. Does anyone know of a supplier? Also has anyone tried to breed them yet? I had never considered it until the other.... if I am going to go to the effort of tracking some down, I may as well have a bash at breeding them.
  16. I was thinking about how some fish are just crazy and act oddly at times. This is a corydoras I have and when I got her she had a short stumpy tail (which is now all grown back) but this made her stay on her own quite abit from the other corys for quite a few months. She used to like to sleep on a Java Moss Ball which was hung up near the top of the tank on a golden vine branch. She is the only cory I have ever had that likes to sleep on a comfy java moss bed. Her name is Snowball (as she is white and likes to sleep on a moss ball) I am glad to report she is now hanging out with the other corys. Anyone else have any crazy fish pics?
  17. The other night i reported two of my discus spawned for the first time and ate their eggs the next day. So tonight one of the discus that bred the other night teamed up with a totally different diacus n there is a stak more eggs this time on the surface of a flat river rock. Plenty of practice here :-). And to top if off danny (dirty07) is moping round the house wearin his mega grumpy pamts mmourning the death of our stud tangerine peacock named tanga the ranga. RIP tanga :-(
  18. I'm having a massive algae and snail explosion and I really can't figure out why. I can't even figure out what the algae is! It started as dark brown spots on the edges of leaves which couldn't be removed even by scraping with a fingernail. It doesn't really look like the images of black spot algae I see online. Anyway, then it moved from my baby tears to my amazon sword, java fern and eventually even my anubia. Then hair-like algae grew in the same spots up to maybe 2cm long. I also got some beard algae in places and some green hair algae which are both easily removed. At the same time, I have had a snail explosion. I went from seeing a couple of pond snails around which always got crushed, to seeing maybe 3 types of small snail everywhere. Now, I've never had much/any of an algae problem. I know I probably overfeed my fish by accident, however it's never caused an issue. I have a 1200lph canister filter on my 80L tank. It was *clean*. Regular water changes etc. I recently added a new 20W light so there are now about 2W/gal on my tank because I had a nicely planted tank. I was using flourish and flourish excel for that reason though since getting the algae issue I stopped with the flourish and only use excel, now every day since I read somewhere that helps. For the past week I haven't had any fish in there besides 2 adult bristlenose and some fry in the cave so there hasn't even been any fish food floating around as I figure the BNs have enough bloody algae. I also did a 50% water change last week and regular 10% changes since then. I'm at my wits end, I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong or how to fix this. I am ready to rip everything out and start again because it all looks like crap. I'm sorry this is long but I'm going crazy, does anyone have any suggestions?
  19. im 17 and parents said im only allowed one heated tank -.- "when you pay the eletricity bill you can have as many tanks as you like"- quote from mum ok so by the weekend my 6x2x2 will be set up with my golden severums and oscar and possibly a few texas(if im lucky) thats my display tank its going to be planted have a few feeders and RCS my 4ftx15"Wx18"H will be empty(and my new non heated tank) so what can i breed in there that breeeds quick or slow but i want large ammounts of fry (to feed my displays with occasionally)breeding feeders would make low quality fish even lower quality because theyd be breeding with there own siblings by chance :S ! so ideass on what to breed would be greatly appreciated! cheers .

  23. Hi guys, I am writing this article as more of a warning rather than a plea for help. As some of you may have seen, I had some discus recently imported from overseas. I came home last week to discover one dead on the floor and shrugged it off (not happily) as an unfortunate fluke. The next day I returned home at approximately 5pm to notice one of my other discus wedged behind the filter intake. My suspicion was immediately aroused as this particular discus was known to hide behind one of my pots and venture out generally only for food. At approximately 9pm that same night, I was watching TV and was interrupted by huge crashing and splashing sound. I immediately rushed to my tanks to find the discus that had previously wedged itself behind the filter intake rushing around the tank, bumping into everything and trying to jump out of the water. I was in complete shock and went into Dr mode and immediately checked all my water parameters to find absolutely nothing wrong. N.B No new plants or fish had been introduced for at least 4 weeks. After checking my water parameters and finding nothing wrong, I thought it best to wait until first thing the next morning to get some advice from a local discus expert / friend. Before I had a chance to even wake up I was awoken by a friend coincidently sleeping on a couch near the fish. He was banging frantically on my door saying ‘not good not good!’. I immediately rushed out to find that same discus on the floor, thankfully still alive. I managed to get him back in the tank without an issue and he didn’t seem to be too stressed. N.B I had lids tightly secured except for one small section which was being covered with a light. The fish had to have jumped so hard as to knock the light out of place and out of the tank. I rushed down to the LFS where a friend works and as I suspected, he suggested an immediate treatment for external parasites. The treatment of choice was Cupramine. I arrived home at approximately 12pm and dosed the entire tank immediately. Several hours later the fish was dead. The cupramine treatment was continued to ensure no spread of the expected external parasites. As mentioned, this happened approximately one week ago. Yesterday afternoon I once again heard splashing and banging in my tank and once again rushed to the tank to find yet another discus doing the same thing. I was determined to not let this fish die as it has recently shown signs of pairing off with the dominant male. I sat at my computer for hours last night trying to find any related article with no success. Until I eventually came across this link: http://www.myfishtank.net/forum/discus- ... iscus.html I rushed once again down to the LFS and sat with the owner (who actually shut the shop for me) for nearly an hour trying to work out what exactly it could be that is affecting this fish. We deduced that it must be an internal parasite, but we were unsure as to the behaviour the fish were displaying and why it was happening to only one fish at a time. We then concluded that it must be some sort of internal parasite that is targeting the brain of the host fish and moving on once the fish is dead. I got home and straight away moved the discus into a quarantine tank and dosed the tank with Praziquantel. I had a feeling this would not be strong enough and due to the information given in the above article, I was not about to risk it. This morning I went down the local vet and had an appointment with an exotic vet specialising in fish and birds. I mentioned my course of action, and even she was stumped. She advised that the best thing to do would be to dose the tank with metronidazole. I am now eagerly awaiting the results… I hope this information helps anyone else that finds themselves in this situation. To my knowledge, it apparently only effects discus, and is very uncommon. I will update as much as possible to hopefully be able to suggest a cure to this thing. Cheers, Chris
