  1. There is feeder shrimp breeding in there too, so was just thinking fire tail gudgeons as they'll stay closer to the surface away from the shrimp ? Any suggestions welcome.
  2. Just after some suggestions as to what fish you think would be suitable for breeding to keep a somewhat steady supply of feeders available... must be easy to breed and produce a large number of preferably quick growing fry, and be able to be housed in a 2-3ft tank rack system... or would breeding freshwater crayfish/yabbys be a better option? the consumer will be a single mangrove jack
  3. Hi brains trust, I want to breed small feeders for my little bass. I have tried RC shrimp, but they are too cool, so they got their own tank What sort of species should I go for? Cheers Ez
  4. I was recommended to feed the following to rainbows geophagious braziliensis. What other fish are easy breeders that won't grow to big that I can also feed to Rainbows. I'm currentlyfeeding them bloodworms, garden compost worms.
  5. Hey guys, Just a quick question about what to do if you were away for a week. I've seen the vacation feeder blocks and such, as well as auto feeders. Has anyone had any experience with them? How do you care for your fish when you're away for an extended period? Might have to go away for a week or so later in the year, and getting someone to feed my babies isn't a possibility. Any hints or tips? Would have to feed a 3x1, 5x2, 2" and a 1". I was reading that the small pyramid feeders can last up to 3 days depending on temp/PH ect. I'd be more confident putting those in with the smaller guys, but not for the bigger guys in the 3x1 and my 5x2. Cheers Adam
  6. Hi all i Wondered if i could tap you for some ideas/suggestions. what bottom feeders to go with my guppies and not eat the baby fry ? I have a 60L Hex tank that is has fine gravel, full of plants and currently housing 1 female and 6 fry.lost all the others due to over feeding (big rookie mistake:baby:) Id like to put some little bottom feeders of some description in there to help clean up and catch the bits the guppies dont bother with. What would you put in there and that wont also grow too big. Any ideas welcome! Many thanks
  7. Who here uses an automatic feeder. I'm looking at getting one but it needs to hold a decent amount of food. I'm talking at least 2 to 4 Kg and 6mm pellets. All the ones I have looked at are battery powered which I don't really like but will buy if I really have to. Any feed back would be great. Cheers
  8. So I have a Mangrove Jack in my 7x2.5x2 Tank now. Been feeding him just the feeder gudgeons from the local City Farmers (50 for $10). Will try and get him on mix of pellets some time when he gets a bit larger. Only about 9cm at the moment. Anyhow, my question/situation is, I have a spare 3ft Tank in my garage, how hard would it be to keep some species of fish that breeds rapidly and would be a good cheap breeder to supply me with a good amount of feeder fish for my mangrove jack? Tried searching for info on here but didn't find anything that related? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Tim.
