  8. More from the south east of Queenslands ocean areas and the sport hobby combo the aandtsociety participates in. Firstly just a couple off useless facts. Over fishing of edible species, which on average are predators to near all aquarium fish, results in more than a reef can handle of popular aquarium fish species inhabiting the reefs and subsequently eating the corals/anemones at a greater rate, most angelfish and all chaetodons/butterfly fish eat corals/anemones, others do as well but they are the main culprits, hence the need for balance with reef regulations. Over collection of aquarium species actually enhances the reefs invertebrate content a great deal, predators will find foods other than the food chain popular aquarium fish species! Here are a few examples of what is around the south east that we get to see, take home and a few oceanic facts. Some of the club members went for a collecting trip out wide, a few weeks back, sadly I couldn’t make that trip,but one of the guys likes this thing in particular he collected from the day,yuk,only a mother could love that face,lol,some like the frog and angler fish types, not all of us though. This is an actual anglerfish out of three main types we find around the southeast. When you take them out of the water at all, you have to literally burp them by rubbing their lower organ cavity area upwards while submersed in their new home or they get an air bubble blockage inside that will kill them via not being able to eat, its easy to fix this issue! Its like something the commercial guys and us at rare times have to do, with more so the two local types of pomacanthus angel fish, they are the worst, the latezonatus clown fish are prone as well in particular that are brought up to quick or the water temps are below 20c,this slows down their swim bladder functions and they get bent we call it, the swim bladder can not expel the oxygen they take from the water quick enough as you come to the surface with them. The swim bladder expands far quicker then they can expel the trapped oxygen with in it,ours are never this bad but its sought of the same as the more xtreme example of a fish type with a swim bladder brought up from great depths on a fishing line,the bladder may show pertruding from their backside,they puff up and their eyes may bulge,not a pretty sight with line caught fish from waters over a hundred feet deep. The first for me was around 26 years back when I was free diving and caught an adult pomacanthus imperator angel fish,in just over 40 feet of water, it was in winter and winter water temps back then were regularly 14c to 16c, so its swim bladder couldn’t expel as quick as I assended,so it got bent,luckily the commercial guy I was diving with (,I had finished my time on hookah and went off for some free diving to not get sick in the boat at anchor,) had a hyperthermic and iodine on board, it was dipped and has to be inserted the right way and extract the air and they are fine, it went to a Melbourne business and started life with the owners other already 35 year old imperator! These are the recent adult imperator and semicirculatus pomacanthus that are quite easy to get bent,seen on our trips.

  12. The month of February hasn’t been that great with the weather and all, but we still got a couple of trips in at a few of the fantastic spots we frequent here in Queenslands South East near Brisbane. There has been heaps of rain and it has wiped out more or less half of all the aquarium life in the estuaries around here, in one or two all quality aquarium life is dead and gone from the rains. This happens quite a lot,the best we have had for many years was about 10 years back,there were two years with in that drought time that the estuaries had two years to build up life and it was something to see. We had excellent reef life in common estuaries to enjoy and collect, sadly it was all killed off again as usual by rains that exceed a certain level over a 24 hour period reducing salinity not letting the tide come in and wiping out billions of beautiful life forms. Out of the few trips we did our trip threads on a few pics have been selected and put in this thread to just show a bit of what has been done as an extra thing with in our aquarium club apart from just keeping the fish and inverts we collect for our tanks and subsequently learn so much about how they live in the wild ever since the club started trips like this in the late 1920s to use this info in the keeping of them. There are quite a few underwater pics and videos but this will show a little of what we get to do in the south east on our trips. Whether we get them for mates or fellow clubbies or our own tanks this is a small amount of what we do over each month. Just a few of the tank creatures collected. One of the clubbies relaxing on a discarded seat between collecting and spearing.
  13. Hi all you marine keepers, just a little more showing off our club trips. Firstly some photos of some of the species we caught in these February trips, four trips all up. One was a boat trip and three were to different spots down the gold coast. There are one or two videos the spearo’s among us will drool about. On one trip we got nothing as no one wanted any thing, than when we had the last club meeting and the clubbies saw what was there on the video, that was it, everyone said what they wanted and we had several car loads of clubbies ready to have a ball. The boat trip had only three on board which was a shame as Dave’s boat takes seven legally and conditions were very good, the video of the medium sized semi angel fish was in 12 metres as was the tube worms and the whaler shark was at nearly 18 metres, from this trip and there are more from this trip and the others but just have a look if you want. There is a pic of the smooth water at the back of the boat as we go along, than a couple of semi angelfish and some lion fishes, etc, from other trips in feb. We all got heaps, mainly for Marks swimming pool tank and his new five foot tanks that have just been put on the same system as the swimming pool, it’s huge! The banner fish should look great as they are all going in the same tank at Marks, similar to Danny’s school of banners in his 6 foot tank. We hope you enjoy the pics and videos. http://s678.photobucket.com/albums/vv14 ... g%20trips/ http://s678.photobucket.com/albums/vv14 ... %20videos/
