  1. Hey guys, I'd like to introduce myself, i'm Tim from Holland where i still live currently. I'm about to move to Cairns QLD next year because my GF lives over there. So might as well look up some info about what kind of predatory fish are legal to keep in an aquarium. I'm an experienced fishkeeper, i have had predatory fish for over a decade. I own a well known aquarium webshop here in Holland and i'm involved in a lot of aquarium projects for companies. Last month i did the lighting for a zoo's shark tank. I own a rare piranha now. a black piranha " Serrasalmus Rhombeus" full grown: 42cm. A real monster and very agressive. I've had an Golden Xback Asian arowana and some BDx stingrays in the past. The good thing is there are basically no restrictions on fishkeeping over here. I read that rules in OZ are a lot stricter so i'm happy to read what is possible over there. My dream is to build a massive wooden- epoxy aquarium in Cairns in wich i can house the biggest predatory fish like stingrays and peacock bass. I build an aquarium like that already on a small scale for practice. and want to do it on a monster scale when we have a house in Cairns. PS: sorry for my english, since it isn't flawless yet.
  2. Hey All Dale Here really old member getting back into my fish just got 6'X2'X2' gonna do an African setup. i came back on here to get some knowledge back and some new ideas from new people any help i can get is allways appreciated
  3. A mate of mine is giving me two saratoga that he no longer wants and I don't know what other fish would be okay to put with them or should I put it in the same tank that I have bass and rainbow trout in? Any suggestions would be great ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. A big shout out for the boys at AOA, a few weeks ago I bought a bar of dog wash soap for our new pooch, Eddie. Washbar, I think its called. http://washbar.nz/products/original-washbar-soap-for-dogs/ Neem and tea tree oil. Finally got to use it on Friday, as we had some purina puppy wash to use up before we got to the soap. Well the results are amazing, his coat is the best it has ever been, and he still smells great 3 days on, no hint of dog anywhere . What a great product. I hope you continue to stock it. Especially impressed with its Anti-Flea, lice and tick properties too. Once again you guys know how to pick a great product . Two thumbs up and thanks again. Grubby.

  7. The other day I saw a gorgeous coris gaimard in 20ish feet of water, it was just getting adult colour, this was while spear fishing and I carry my collecting and camera gear always while hunting for dinner and the coris too big to catch, so when trying it get it to tolerate me taking pics, out popped a common little flavissima/vrolikii centropyge hybrid, a cute little one, you don’t see many little hybrids! The silly coris wasn’t letting me take pics, maybe it was the spear gun, lol, so the little guy was the right size and was to be a new addition to my bottom tank/angel fish tank. The massive male anthia I gave Danny, it was causing trouble in his tank by stealing every ones food, he was fed up with it so I put it in the bottom tank, why I have no idea, it’s a pig!! These are the new guys, they hang under the same section of coralline.
  8. Some time ago I chucked in a bit of algae and stupidly introduced hair alga and turf algae! It was annoying to use tweezers as in the past to pull it out from time to time so i put in these guys along with my tub cleaning crew land mine urchins and the green is near non existent and so far no coralline has been touched as well. It’s not easy to find just little urchins, but with some help after an hour or two in the rock pools, its all good. Their work result.

  15. Hi there, New to the hobby, have started doing a bit of online reading. Just wondering if people can give me some information/do's and don't's about setting up a Saltwater Aquarium. I'd be looking at a 5ft setup and this will be a hobby of mine. I'd basically be looking at a (I'm sure you've heard it a lot) Nemo type setup (clownfish, yellow/blue tangs, bannerfish). Is this achieveable in a 5ft setup, if so what sort of population would I be looking at? Next off would be the equipment as to what I would need as from the research I've done there are quite a few bits and people's opinions differ quite a lot. If there's anything I've missed or anything I should be doing before looking at equipment, please advise me as I'm all ears. Thank you and I look forward to meeting/hearing from some of you, Michael.
  16. Here is one of the Bristlenose i picked up at my LFS. They are feeding really well on tank algae, driftwood & Algae wafers. I threw a couple of shelled peas in turned of the lights & in the morning they were gone. Not sure if the Bristlenoses got them or the Flying foxes & Cory's.
  17. Now or soon we will not need our chillers, so its time for serious maintenance ready for next years cooking prevention time! Time to get those bearings on the fan motor, cleaned out and repack with Vaseline or some GP grease. Hey I bought a boat and trailer, both built in 87 and I put a grease nipple on the bearing caps, I drilled and put in and those bearing lasted the 19 years I had that boat, it pays to keep the lube up with bearings! I did my chillers fan shaft bearings today, after the cloths washing of course, but I put in some actual bearings rather then the cheap rubbish bush bearings my cheap chiller came with, but still bush or roller bearings, they need repacking each year or one day that fan will stop and by, by healthy chiller. So if you don’t, you will have to buy another chiller at the worst time possible usually, or get some expensive labour done on it. I would prefer not to be lazy and get it a part and get into it. These are mine freshly packed with woollies vas,lol. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10201450566817316&set=a.10201316219978729.1073741840.1569796931&type=3&theater

  19. I seem to have fallen into breeding gourami's for a hobbie and these are my tanks. Green as grass as I've been at this for a month. My largest tads are 1 inch. Yes they ate the mosquito larvae hatchlings.
  20. Guys over period of time I have accidently picked up some guppies, possibly come in with some plants or something. They are breeding like mad at the moment. I always thought that guppies were collourful little fish, however the ones i have only have black on them . The big female is a greenish colour with a black spotted tail,a couple of smaller males have only black tails but they are too small for me to see the tail shape. Can someone tell me what type of guppies they could be. Regards
