  1. Does anyone know if you can still purchase small fry powder foods such as golden pearls or larval fry foods in Australia. I know golden pearls were popular a few years back but seem hard to find now. I have been buying my fry starter powder online from a marine shop but postage gets expensive for 20g food as they stock only marine and coral foods. I am looking for the very small size food ie 50-100 micron and 100-200 micron size to feed till they are big enough to take nls fry powder which is about 300 or so micron from memory.

  6. .I bought a peacock which was displaying a blue head & yellow body,looked nice & thought it would be a nice male.for my tank,after a few months it's Brown & has a mouthful of eggs,do shops feed them something which brings out colours even in females?makes it difficult for the average person to be fooled into buying fish they never intended to purchase.
  7. .Where would i go to buy live foods for baby axolotls, an online shop that posts in australia would be best or anything in queensland cheers guys.
  8. You dont want average when it comes to the shrimp side of the hobby. You want something created by an insane shrimp scientist* fixated on creating the perfect shrimp food. After exhaustive testing of batches on a large range of shrimps to ensure correct levels of the little things needed for each breed to look their best. We now have the result, a food that unites the essentials with the desired optionals. Nutrients loaded with minerals! If shrimp are getting their minerals from their food, then maintaining an exact GH in a shrimp aquarium becomes less essential. This is probably the trickiest part of the more challenging shrimp types, and frequently requires maths to get optimal. So very handy to have a food that gets the job done. This stuff is also FRESH and made with the best organic ingredients. It drags the tanks shrimp to it, so place it in the perfect location, and snap some good pictures of them all feeding. Once they get a taste for it...... no other food can compare. And that is how it got its street name. Age of Aquariums - Shrimp Crack 30gm I cant help but think this would be a potent treat for larger crayfish or even crab species. *may not actually be an insane shrimp scientist......... but if you described an insane shrimp scientist....... he would tick most the boxes. In a good way XD

  16. Hey just wanting to know if people use any local or native dried leaves in their tanks. Know the usual people mentioned like Almond and Mulberry, but if is just the "slime" off the leaves they are eating wouldn't anything do? Adam
  17. Evening all, Since my lovely 7 bars are getting quiet big these days I am wondering about different foods for them as pellets would get boring and frozen brine shrimp are getting abit small. I was reading up that they can eat krill, smaller fish (but mine wont touch fish), and worms. Just wondering what sort of worms blood worms, meal worms etc? I just want to start giving them different foods. If any of you can help that would be great. In the mean time ill keep looking around on the internet for more info. Cheers Shane
  18. Went to pet city today and bought some of the new Ocean Nutrition Frozen Food line to try out I already feed my fish Ocean nutrition spirulina flake and hatch baby brine shrimp everyday For a while now I've stopped feeding Hikari mysis shrimp once I ran out ... Now I bought 5 packets of OS mysis, a packet of krill superba and a packet of spinich First I fed the OS mysis, the mysis shrimp were much smaller than the ones I was used to but they were perfect feeding for my fish regardless, much better that they are smaller actually. So it fit into all the little fishes mouths! The cubes weren't very watery either which was a good thing But about 30mins ago I fed my fish again, this time it was a mixture of 3 cubes of krill and 3 cubes of spinich. HOLY MOLY! I was blown away by the quality, consistency and just the plain look/smell of the food! this is the kind of quality food people should be buying and feeding their fish. I was very amazed by the exceptional sheer quality of the frozen foods and I'll definitely be stocking up on it

  20. Gday all, Ok I have researched reasearch and researched and yet I can not find any parasites or diseases that derive form feeding your fish Processed foods like ALgae waffers and Flake foods. The reason for my search is that another member has just lost his complete tank of cichlids and B/N's and he beleives that this is due to the introduction of new type of algae waffer into his feeding routine. The person in question origianly belived it to be gill fluke, My research has drawn me to understand that "fluke" is a parasite that has a 24hr life cycle and can only be carried either through water changes or anything that contains infected water ie river rocks, fish, weed ect. I have found some rough info that there are claims that such parasites can be transfered via frozen foods, This information was on other forums and not by any research faciclity. The symptoms of the fish as far as I am aware are " gill flaring", "lathargic fish" and "gasping". I am very keen to hear everyones thoughts on this. Cheers Johno
  21. Got this email and this is on there site? It is with great sadness that we have to make the following announcement. Due to unforseen circumstances and the general economic climate, we are sad to announce that Prestige Aquatics Foods & Aquatic Goods will be closing business very soon. This will also include the Prestige Aquatics Discussion Boards. We would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG THANKS to all those who have supported Prestige Aquatics by way of purchases or active membership here on site. This site will be closed down on or before 31/08/10 and will also be placed in parking for possible future use. This will mean that only the Site Team will have access to this site for general upkeep. In light of this we have now got the AFF [Australian Fish Friends] site up to the point where it is ready to be promoted in order to get things happening. So why not copy and paste the following www into your computer's favs: The AUSTRALIAN FISH FRIENDS - Preserving the Piscatorial Passion

  23. Hey, Has been on my mind for a while, as people say this and that. The food that im mainly reffering to is White Crane, Do you have a problem with it? Reasons:- Cons - May turn fish steril (Only Heard Rumours) - Does not promote Breeding, therefore not fed to breeding fish - Fish may have a shorter life span (Rumours) - Fish may suffer intestinal damage (Rumours) - Promotes Aggression Pros - Promotes vivid colour - Makes for great display fish Obviously there are alot of rumours goin around. ------------------------------------- So Would/Do you:- Recommend it to people? Use it yourself? Do you like Store's using it? Or would you put a cross besides the above questions? Imo it is great for display fish and nothing else. Looking forward to your comments. Seph
