  1. Hey guys, Nate here, I've finally got my license back, so keen as mustard to go out looking for some native shrimp for a nano I've got I'm most after glass or riffles. I live in the Logan area, but keen to go for a little drive, set up 2-3 traps, then come back in the morning to check on them I'll be using just the normal rectangular bait traps with probably a can of cat food or tuna in each with a few hours poked in Regards, Nathan Aka BarryToucher

  3. This reference area is for any one to look at and if any body wants to find out the correct Latin names for the ones not named yet, that would be wonderful. Obviously the larger creatures that are not for marine aquariums in some of the references will not have a guide for use in the aquarium.lol. As time goes by all will be described as to how they respond in reef or fish only aquarium situations or the non suitability for either. The bases for this reference centre is SEQ only,its finished and the tidying of all references and further additions begins now. http://southeastqueenslandm.aforumfree.com/f20-fish-invertebrates-found-in-seq
  4. Over the last month or so there have been some top collecting trips the club has organised, especially for the new members to start stocking their tanks with some local marine life to add to the species they have bought. This is just a few pics of the collected species in their tanks and of the sport of recreational collecting we carry out to keep the aandtsociety,once the diverse Aquarium and Terrarium Society of Queensland, now south east Queensland aquarium society with only marine/reef aquarium keepers these days. Some of these photos are from some recent trips the club members have been on to collect their own reef aquarium life forms and enjoy the southeast’s free dive sites and low tide rock pool spots as well. One of the better sunrises as we arrived at the water for a low tide trip. Two boat loads of us on our way to collect and appreciate the ocean on a club collecting trip. Some colourful variations of zoanthids seen on our trips. This season has had some chunky muddies at our collection sites.
  5. Nice to meet you all, Big fan of your discussions but first time poster (please be gentle I've seen many comments made about keeping ghost shrimp/glass shrimp/grass shrimp with guppies and the risk that guppy fry may be eaten. The problem is that there are many different types of shrimp referred to as above, American species e.t.c. I have captured some glass shrimp (pretty sure that they're Paratya australiensis) in my creek and put them in a tank with my guppy fry to clean up sinking food/waste. These are the same species that are sold on livefish which claims that they are unlikely to harm even the smallest fish. My question is - for people who have bought glass shrimp from livefish or caught their own shrimp in the Brisbane region, do THEIR shrimp eat the fry of livebearers (guppies, platys e.t.c)? Thanks Andrew
  6. Hi all, Recently acquired a nice second hand 6 footer from Justin69 (thanks bud and can't beat the price). Thought I would post up a build journal of a SE Qld Biotype I am attempting. Will be going low tech on this. No CO2 gas, minimal ferts, basic lighting and filtration. Tank Basic 6 footer (180cm x 45cm x 45cm) with lids Tank Stand Basic Pine 6 legger (what else can I say) Substrate Mix of Coarse Potting sand, Coffs Gravel and some mixed black gravel with Calcium Carbonate chips through it Home made mix of 1 part garden loam, 1 part Laterite, hand full of calcium carb substrate/coral/shell grit spread only in section of tanl were rooted, hungry plants are going (rear corners and back basically) Filtration 1 x Resun 280U • Dacron wool • Ceremic rubble • Purigen (once tank is cycled) Lighting 1 x Aqua-One T5HO 4 Foot Light (But will ikely add another 3 footer to suppliment this once plants are in) Heating 1 x Jager 250 W Fertilisers Will be using Dino-pee and spit once plants established. Suppliment substrate with Manutec Water Garden tablets or DunoDung Hardscape Three nice pieces of Melaleuca Roots Assorted small rocks for substrate mounding and some varaition in substrate type for fish. Plants Still investigating and colleccting speciemens from the wild, but will be a mix of Vallisneria Hydrilla Ceratophyllum Myriophyllum Hydrocotyle Aponogeton Fish 1 x Saratoga (ring in but will persist for now) 2 x Jungle Perch Rainbows (M. doubolayi) Gudgeons (M. adspersa, H. galii, H. compressus) Blue Eyes (P. signifer) Hardiheads (c. stercusmuscarum) May alter this to drop the rainbows and Purple Spot in place of a large shool of Ornate Rainbows (Rhadinocentrus ornatus). Foods Mixtures of pellets, flake, and frozen foods supplemented with live Daphnia, mosquito larvae, bloodworms and black worms. So anyway here are some progress shots. Week 1 - Test the tank, and size up the driftwood Week 2 - Hardscape the tank
  7. These are a few pics from our Brisbane,Logan and The Redlands clubs recent activities with mainly free diving, there will be some low tide walks collecting more so into winter as the tides get smaller, exposing more areas to observe for the collecting of peppermint and boxer shrimps,a part from many other rock pool variaties. There have been 6 trips during the holidays since the last post on here and these are just a few pics out of the many from those trips to show a tiny amount what we do a part from the standard aquarium club and marine aquarium keeping activities. Hundreds of these surgeons ,well it appears like thousands at two of our trips, heaps around at several sites this season, as with the olivacius as well, they are quite small as well yet. Another hepatus surgeon,a few caught lately this one was caught accidentally while trying to catch a hawk fish over the stags. Lots of lovely inverts around at the sites we frequent. A young Moorish idle caught; the last one kept is huge now in Marks tank, it looks obese! Hope you like them and until a few are taken out of trips next time for you to put on here,enjoy the reef keeping!
  8. There hasn’t been much in the way of free diving or scuba trips for the club over recent months due to our pres moving home and the main trip organiser having to deal with serious family issues,plus there were some pretty ordinary weather and water conditions over the last 6 to 8 months as well. The last month or so things have picked up quite a bit and 25 plus metres vis and warm water will be enjoyed amongst heaps of trips to just look or collect for sure over the next few months,now that things are much better. These are just a few pics of a few collected species and the areas within two spots the club made do with while conditions were not so good. Finaly some nice weather to enjoy. The vis on the last two trips. Some underwater pics of the two spots from Ian and Danny,much better ones from now on with a bit of luck due to ocean conditions becoming very nice. more in the next reply.
  9. There was a pm to me about collecting around bris. we have a page on our aandtsociety website that shows all sites in queenslands south east. This page is from several lots of brain picking and accounts for at least 30 plus years of acute local knowledge. If the moderators don't think it is a good thing to be on here,just remove it,it doesn't matter,it will become a good referance over time anyway. This is the link to the page! http://www.aandtsociety.org.au/SEQ%20dive%20spots.htm
