  1. The easiest way, to make a trees day, is to tip a bucket of aquarium water that has had a filter squeezed out in it, all around the trees base. Its the best fertilizer on the market. Destroying a filters bacteria colony by cleaning filter media in straight tap water results in 2 weeks of ammonia and nitrite smashing your fish. Best case scenario you get stuck doing epic water changes every few days and wasting hours testing water. That is the best thing that can happen. The worst is you lose your fish and just give up. The tiny mistake of cleaning filter media in tap water is something we see every day at AOA. And.... every day we help people go into damage control, and get themselves back to the point where they can be lazy again. Its not even like its a big mistake, its just a little one with big consequences. Long ago, someone pulled me up on cleaning filters in tap water. Gave me a lecture. And that marked the beginning for me of keeping fish long term, rather than just buying them. When I stopped treating my filter like something I had to get clean.... and instead realised that gunk growing in the filter was the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU NEEDED TO HAVE TO ACHIEVE AN AWESOME AQUARIUM. All filters are just homes for bacteria. Cleaning a filter means pruning back the bacteria culture so that water can flow through the media. It does not mean killing it all and making the place sparkle. The most reliable way to maintain good bio filtration, is to clean filters in a bucket of aquarium water taken from the aquarium the filter was running on. Its a small thing, but it decides the fate of the little underwater world you have created

  4. QFAS have cancelled the Market Day for 9th July. But I was wondering if I booked the hall and ran the market day not QFAS, would anyone still turn up? If I can get 6 people who say they want to sell at the Market Day I can charge $20 per space and still break even on the hall rental. So if you let me know before the end of the week I will go ahead and book the hall instead of QFAS. Graeme
  5. Looks like another great store is closing down. R&J Aquatics in Lismore is closing today at 5.00 pm. If you are in the area duck in and grab some bargains and help them out. Address is 91 Magellan St Lismore. John and Rheia ran a fantastic store and were pure hobbyists, running a rescue service for fish from there store. They walked the walk in terms of the ethic of fish keeping, and are always happy to advise the new hobbyist or the experienced. We certainly wish them the best as John, Rheia and the kids work towards the next steps in life. Give them a hug from QLDAF.

  8. http://www.qldaf.com/forums/qldaf-events-calendar-announcements-38/qfas-market-day-satudary-9th-july-129874/ I am happy to pay for a stall for QLDAF members to sell at the auction day. The last one seemed like a great event and a lot of fish changed hand. If I have a handful of members who wish to bring some fish and sell them, we will do this. A great chance to get together and have a chat. You will need to bring some change with you for the buying public. (To state the obvious, if you have lots of fish to sell get a stall (they are dirt cheap). Can anyone interested please reply below or shoot me a message. Steve
  9. Hi all, There is a function on my automatic feeder which will let you choose "days" from 0-99. Not quite sure what this function is for. I worked out how to set feeding times and the amount of scoops. Not sure about the days tho. Want the feeder to feed the fish every day while i am at work. The feeder has no name otherwise i would have googled instructions. Help is much appreciated.

  25. Evening all. I just thought I would throw up a post to share my opinion & get others opinions on the market day that was on today at Springwood. Firstly this is the first market day I have dropped into & I must say I liked the idea. Definitely a base to work from. To me these market days are the exact opposite of the auctions (which I have given up on) and that is a good thing. Instead on having to go out on a Saturday night & sit there all evening/morning just hoping that something I was after would pop up, I was able to peruse all items at my leisure. I knew what time & suburb it was on (in the middle of the day, perfect) & could plan my day around it. I used the opportunity to ride the daisy hill mountain bike trails before going down to the Market day. But even if it was further afield for me I could easily plan a day out with the family & still drop past. I feel this can make these types of events more accessible to more people. One of the reasons I don't go to auctions anymore is that Im not going to drag my son out all night nor do I want to miss a weekend family dinner, without all the busyness that comes with weekdays. Instead of having to listen to auctioneers (one in particular) dribble on & on about rubbish & how we don't appreciate all the hard work they put in blah blah blah, I was able to walk around & talk casually to the sellers, which was really nice & they (you guys on here mostly) are always nice people & anybody who knows me knows I like a chit chat. I was able to view the fish, I knew what the expected price was & could carry on looking & come back if I wanted too. And I did. Everything there was very well priced, bargains even. Even had a chat with old mate (josh?) from AOA & grabbed some food I just had dent had time to get to his shop to buy yet, perfect. I would like to hear feedback from sellers from today, as this is only my experience but this was definitely the nail in the auction coffin for me. Come auction time I usually entertain the idea of going but then don't, for many reasons. From now on I will just wait till next market day. Only thing I can think that may need improvement is advertising, how do you go about making this kind of event more publicised for buyers & sellers? Facebook? Cheers guys.
