  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.

  5. 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
  6. :beer: big hello new guy here im into saltwater,shrimps,planted tanks and much more...
  7. Just a heads up that AOA is back. Kudos to all who have stuck with us during the trials of the swap over. Lots of changes incoming, but for now we are almost back to where we were lol. Lot of good feedback has been reviewed. New systems setup, contacts made and changed. Plenty of bumps ahead, but times are good and we are going to have a lot of fun together
  8. Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. I think I made an account here a while ago to try and see if anyone had pure Trimacs for sale in the trade section Anyway, I'm currently running 8 tanks of SA/CA cichlids. This whole addiction thing's got out of hand. 6x2x2 no. 1 has 1 tiger oscar, 1 green sev (white spot is a scar from before I got her) and 9 SDs: My other 6x2x2 has my juvenile Umbee. Poor thing is getting over a small bacterial infection in his dorsal spine (totally my fault that one, long story, treatment for it is working well though). He's around 6 - 6.5" (~15cm). Got him when he was around 1.5". He's been missing the dorsal spine since I got him - another juvie Umbee bit it off when he was at the pet store. Yes, he is alone in this 6x2x2. Got some WEIRD looks from the guy who helped set up the tank for this tiny little fish What else do I have. Oh right, I've got a male jag rescue (8 - 8.5") in a 5x18. He's got HITH from how his previous owner kept him, but it's improving slowly. Going to upgrade him to a 5x2x2 in a couple of months then upgrade one of my other fish to his tank. Also got a small Freddy in a 4x18 (another Gumtree rescue). Only had those two for a few weeks. Finally, I've also got 4 RD mutts (from Hazelwood) I was given for free. Each of them has their own tank, got the smaller two in standard 4fts and the larger two in a 5x18 and 4x2x18 respectively. So yeah. Happy to provide more pictures of the gang, but that just about covers it.
  9. Hi all, I'm fairly new to the hobby, I recently set up a 2ft tank and a small betta tank on a student budget (uncomfortably tight). Enjoying it a lot, so much to learn. Ideally within a couple of years I'd like to get a 4ft planted community tank up and running. Also if anyone in brisbane would like to gift me some hardy plants to get me going, I would love you haha. Thanks

  11. Hi, So as you can all tell i am new to this space, have moved up from south Australia about 6 years ago where a had to sell up my beloved marine set up. i am currently looking around for another, nothing that big again just a little something like the Aquareef 195? i was in MLFS (Pet city Mt Gravatt) the other day and noticed that they had one at a really good price, a price i would happily pay, all this is well and good but i have been out of the game for some time now and being out of the game means im not up to date with "what's hot and what's not" I have a few questions that i am sure all of you can shed some light on. Soooo is it a good bit of kit? I have heard that the Skimmer is not that flash? Lighting... T5 is not too bad but i would like to grow some nice Coral, should i upgrade? i used to use halide and now i see a lot of LED?? Sump, is it any good for mods? or should i sell it on and get a custom one made? Thanks in advance for all your imput. oh also, is there another model or brand/unit out there that is better as such? Thanks, Ben

  13. Hey all, just got back from 5 weeks in Spain, saw some amazing things over there. Went to the Oceanographic in Valencia, all marine stuff, saw a Sunfish in the flesh, will post images when I am less jet lagged. Did loads of snorkelling, its bloody hot over there. Aquariumwise didn't see anything to write home about, went into one Pet barn like place called Animal Mundo (Animal world) and the best thing I saw was a Red Bellied Pirahna. Photos soon. What have I missed besides the ANGFA meeting ? Grubby
  14. Hey, Just joined the forum, it looks awesome. Got 4 pythons and just wanted to get into fish, just brought my first tank, its a 6x1.5x1.5. Painted the back of the tank black and got 50kg of black gravel in there, I then put some rocks in there to make a few little caves and started to fill it. I ended up putting a internal filter, 1500 lph and one external filter that does 900lph, 250w heater. Made my own spray bar for the external so I didn't have to give the pet shop an arm and a leg. After letting everything settle for a bit went out and got some cichlids. Ended up with: 2x electric yellows 2x electric blues 2x dolphins 2x Ob peacocks 3x venutus 3x dragon blood peacocks 2x hongis 2x red fin kangadoos 2x saulosis 1x pleco I think I covered them all, but yeah anyways that is my set up, thanks for having me
  15. Hey everyone, my name is joey, and I have a couple of fish tanks, I have a crayfish, bristle nose, rainbow shark, some tetras, Im 11 years old. thanks for reading.
  16. hey everyone Im about to purchase my first proper beginner fish aquarium, ive been looking at roughly the 60L size long style tank. i have come across the Juwel Korall 60 Age of Aquariums - Juwel Korall 60 - Tropical Starter Kit and it seems pretty basic and "cheap" but its only to get me started and work out whats what in the aquarium work haha. im also open to other tank options but keep in mind this one will cost me $150 which isnt all that bad. im planning on putting a big Navy Carrier ship in there which i have found at Pet City in Mt Gravatt. it just fits in there so i might look for a smaller one or bigger tank. i will have some Java Moss growing in there too. the fish im not totally sure on yet. atm i have a small tank with 5 neons, 4 cherry shrimp and a bristlenose. im going to try and score about 50 or so more cherry shrimp for this tank and maybe some more bristlenose aswell but other fish have not been chosen as of yet, so im open to ideas. anyway im glad my Dad (richierichhsv) put me onto this forum as i have seen alot of very helpful posts and comments. cheers
