  3. We did a direct comparison between the Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 and the Fluval Aqualife Plant LED and the Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 comes out a easy winner and price wise it is perfect. When I did the Youtube I did have my phone on Auto and when I pressed the Fresh 2.0 to reduce the light my tricky phone decided to adjust the lighting on the phone and although it does not look like a big change it does make a big change in real life. For pricing and availability on the Fresh 2.0 here is a link to our web site. Lighting
  4. Hello all I am going to be moving back to fresh from a reef tank shortly and would like some advice on what fresh water fish to go into a planted 6x2x2. My last fresh setup was mainly africans cichlids. and I have a small planted nano that I will decommission shortly that has just one otocinclus and I love the work it does to maintain your tank. So basically I havent really had anything to do with fresh inn over 10 years so I am a little out of wack and would love some input on a fish list please TIA Florix
  5. What can I say, Fluval have done their homework on the new range of the Fresh and Plant LED lights. The previous Aqualife and Plant were great lights but they have set the mark and come forward with some great improvements. I have been waiting for these lights to hit Australia since I saw the release in the US market and I could not wait. Normally a new model will have a bit of new shine to an older model but they have gone to town. They only landed in Australia in the last couple of days and we are expecting our stock Tuesday - I am hoping for Monday. So what is the big deal? Well I will leave the most impressive for last but here is what they have done... They have improved the lumens with up to 50% on the previous and naturally this has a small effect on increasing the wattage - nothing major but there is an increase. They have gone to a nice neat soft touch control on the top of the light to give a better personal experience on lighting and making the most of their 5 unique LEDS with full spectrum exposure. You can still rely on the German Engineered light with 3 year warranty. The lights are IPX7 waterproof, splash em - no problem, even accidentally drop it in your tank and you will still be safe. On the two foot model they have not changed the 24"-36" but they have catered for what so many people were asking for on the 36" light. The old model was 36"-46" which was just short of fitting on a 4 foot tank and so many people would say to me "wouldn't it have been nice if it went to 48" and fitted on a 4 foot tank" Well they must have heard as the new model is 36" extendable to 48" and will now nicely fit on a 122cm 4 foot tank. Thanks Mr Fluval. Finally and as I am a gadget person they have added WiFi compatibility - but do not get too excited just yet - it is a "ADDITIONAL ACCESSORY (AVAILABLE SEPARATELY):" and eagerly await its release. Not only will it work on the Apple OS it will also work on the Android OS. If you get too excited and get two of the 2.0 lights - yes it will control two lights. Can't wait for these to rock in the door and just a couple more sleeps... Oh and if you thought that all these massive improvements would come with massive increase in price - your wrong...even with the Aussie dollar doing as poorly as it currently is... Big thumbs up from me....nice work Mr Fluval. For more information please visit the two links below to our website and remember - if your keen pop your email address in the top right hand side where it says "email me when in stock" so we can shoot you an email as soon as they are available and be one of the first to own the new Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 2 foot Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 Full Spectrum 46w LED 36"-48" 3 foot Fluval Fresh and Plant 2.0 Full Spectrum 46w LED 36"-48"

  7. Hey guys and gals, Assuming I were to purchase the dry goods and salt necessary to run a Marine reef tank what else would I have to do to make the change over to marine? Would I have to sell all my lava rock I have or would I be able to use that as base rock for growing corals etc? What size sump would you recommend for a 4x2x2 and are there overflow boxes that don't require drilling the tank or is drilling the only way? Cheers, Adam
  8. Just wondering if anyone has ever had dramas with buying a salt water tank and changing it to fresh water. In know how stupid this may sound. But wondering if the salt affects the condition of the glass and silicon differently.
  9. hiya, I am interested in starting a fresh water crab tank, but need some guidance as to what would be the easiest type of crab to start with and what the costs would be. Thanks in advance.

  12. Hey guys just curious on who has kept fresh water crabs and what you think about them in the aquarium quite intereted in these lil guys.
  13. Hi all, How long should I leave fresh veggies in the tank for my shrimp to eat before I pull it out so it doesn't spoil the water? Cheers, Tess
  14. Hey guys im a newbie to keeping fish but I do have a strong interest in it I'm about to purchase a tank and will run it with plants and cichlids. I am struggling with the choice to get a 4 or a 3 foot tank. I am from the sunny coast!
  15. I spend a lot of time working in extremely rural areas and just lately I thought I saw what appeared to be a small stingray the area is extremely fresh water from a mountain, has any one heard rumours of a wild population in north Queensland
  16. hi there i have a 4 ft tank with american fish in it when i got the tank of one a friend it had 3 holes drilled in the top left side of the tank and was wondering if i could use them for a sump ill get a pic up when i get home. and i was wondering if someone can explain what all of the parts do for a salt water tank like a protein skimmer?? thanks for the help.
  17. HEY GUYS! IM HAPPY NOW. TANK IS ALL SET UP AS OF YESTERDAY BEEN SLACK WITH POSTING I KNOW. a mate helped me out and gave be aged water and filter media so im happy and waiting a few days before the first inhabitants are inside. I am using the standard aqua-one filter unit overhead, with some aged k1 in there, and filter wool with new filter wool (from my mate) as for my stocking im sure you are all desperate to know, and so am i the kind of thing that i am going for in this tank is a "big fishy little fishy" scheme. the idea being: One large (compared to the others) centre-piece fish (attaining no less than 10cm) and many smaller fish such as serpae tetras (i decided on these) I have been weighing up my options and tempted for salvini (i know it wont end well) but having second thoughts in these devils in disguise. Then i look at rainbow cichlids but i think again and want harmony at its finest. really main thing is i am VERY BOTHERED about one fish going missing ever now and then. its something i cannot tollerate, im looking for a setup that will last a good 5 years. so at the moment. i am open to all and any of your suggestions. volume of the tank is 165L dimensions= 33 x 17 x 22 substrate is play sand
  18. I had a phone call earlier from a hair dressing salon asking for my advise. He wants to set up a salt water tank in his hairdressing shop.. what would you guys advise him? I dont know much about saltwater tanks and he tells me he knows nothing about fish.. considering he wanted saltwater, I asked if he wanted live coral and he says yes, then i asked what size tank and he said it holds 1200 litres of water and is built into the wall. What would he need for filtration and what other equipment would be needed for a saltwater tank? Or would it be better to have a freshwater tank with fish like say africans or something colorful, vibrant and active? Keep in mind Gympie is a small town, was just thinking of maintenance of a salt water tank vs freshwater in a small hair salon? Any suggestions are welcomed thanks
  19. I have some nice black hawaiian substrate that is live (bacteria), it's really nice substrate and Im going back to fresh water fish keeping due to lack of time, I'm setting up a new aquarium for a mangrove jack and wondering if there would be any problems with using this substrate, I will give it a good wash out first,
  20. Got some freshwater crabs in. They are soooo cute! They do like cooler water. I was told that they can be kept with goldies but their crabby brains joined forces and created a stacked tower of pinchy-ness. They had a few fantail snacks, so I would definitely recommend NOT putting them with fish that you love. Now they just go to glass partitions and stare longingly at the fish in the tanks next to them. They are eating Spectrum Wafers. If you are looking for something a little weird for yourself or have a spare tank for the kiddies I think these would be a cute little creature to bring home!
  21. While on my last trip to get some shrimp i caught a few small fresh water mullet about 3cm long. Question is do these live long in a tank atm they are swiming as a schoool very nice to look at but if they wont live long id prefer to put them back.
  22. Im "thinking" of converting my 70gal (250l) OR 100gal (380l) to salt. Just trying to study as much as I can first. Anyone got any pointers for me? I havnt bought anything, yet... Will this be a massive step up in fish keeping? And whats the easiest fish to keep?
  23. hey i have had this fish for about 8 months it is about 9cm with really rice colours but i am unsure if what it is hoping someone can tell me and how much it would be worth??
  24. Hey everyone. I see that everyone on here recognizes the benefit of BBShrimp for fry but has anyone here had dealings with Fairy Shrimp. They seem a lot easier to use as they grow in fresh cold water. I am going to try and raise them myself as I am interested in feeding them to my Americans after they have laid the eggs of their next generation. To save you searching here is a link with a lot of info about them and how to raise them. (Its the ebay listing I brought them off) FAIRY SHRIMP EGGS FISH,FRY FOOD 4 BETTA,GUPPY 5000 eggs (eBay item 400153188736 end time 07-Aug-11 21:52:29 AEST) : Pet Supplies Any way just wanted to see if anyone has used them before.
