  1. Ok tonight I got a letter from Energex, informing me that on the 13th of June they are going to cut the power for 6 hrs from 8.30 am till 2.30 pm. In the middle of bloody winter. FFS !!!!! My situation. 1:a rack of 9 2ft tanks all on sponge filters with a large aerator powering the lot through a loop of irrigation pipe. - said rack has 6 cold water rainbow tanks (rhads, blue eyes) and 3 tropical tanks (PNG Rainbows). - non of these tanks are over stocked, so I am not worried about a lack of air for 6 hours nor am I worried about heat as two of the tropical tanks contain Boesmani that until the beginning of May were in an out door pond. In any case my rack and garage are well insulated. 2:Where I am worried is my planted indoor display tank, which is a mixed tropical tank. - it contains about $300 dollars worth of Tetras, Hatchet Fish and miscellaneous tropicals and nerite snails. - It is a Juwel 120 Lido - I have a jaeger 100w on it. - I have an Eheim 2213 on it. - and aeration from an aerator and obviously no CO2. -the tank is planted. - the tank can best be described as heavily stocked for effect. Given that it is the middle of winter, my main concerns are. -Heat or lack of. -The bacteria dying in the canister. -a lack of oxygen due to the heavy stocking of the tank. Obviously I can add a battery powered aerator. That isn't the issue. I am more concerned about a canister full of dead bacteria. Should I be concerned for 6 hours ? I have heard you can request a generator from Energex for this eventuality. Should I be worried or just go with it for 6 hours, its not that long really. Thoughts people.
  2. .I have some 6mm glass lids that I need to remove a 1cm strip from to make them fit. Can I do this with a glass cutter or do I need to get a glazier to do it with a machine ?
  3. Hey guys, I'm looking at setting up an IBC cut in half inside a 2.1x1.5x2m bird aviary that's closed in 3 out of the four sides. Looking at housing a Macquarie short neck turtle in one with local caught gudgeons, the other half will be rainbow fish and gudgeons together. My question is, "Am I able to use an IBC cut in half as a pond, as in both sides useable?" I will have a fly screen cover over both that will be latched done with hinges in one side, a t8 duel baton 4 foot light with reptile globes over the turtle side and just 12v led Cree spot lights over the other side. I'm thinking of a canister for each and heaters as well, and some 700lph internals to keep the water always moving. Is this at all feasible? Or am I just dreaming? I could buy two! the turtle ones the important one as we have two! Both were in a 4.5 foot tank and the male has bitten off the toes of the female, so she gets the pond and he can live in the tank! Both turtles are my sisters, I'm the fish dude, but I've offered to take her off her hands, she's currently in a 2 foot =[ keep in mind they are only just over palm sized at the moment. I will also get a Bigger turtle dock for her, plus that "pond" will only be 3/4 full at most. Regards! Nathan =]
  4. things were getting very crowded so i got a pair of scissors to my top tanks halimeda and all other coralline algae forms along with a few the things tost out, it’s looking a little bald, like me now,lol. Morphs multiplying,tubastraea multiplying and algae going nuts, the few acans and stony corals in here don’t have much room any more, so I think I am going to loose some of those as they get squeezed to death. The long tendril cream morphs are already finding it hard to have space, its not looking good for them, the purple/blues are much stronger and forcing them out by covering them.

  15. Hey everyone Sorry, I'm new to all this, and really don't know what to do. It looked like my betta had lost a few of the scales on his chest 2 days ago (it looked pearly white) - and I thought he might have scratched himself or something... Anyway, today there's like white meat dangling from his chest :( Do I put him in a hospital tank or something so he can't scratch himself more? And do I need to give him anything to help him heal? He looks happy still, but it just looks really terrible... I tried putting up a picture but it keeps failing Thanks so much Jen
