  1. Just wondering if anyone is keeping a small native nano tank, if so do they have any pics? Really in two minds of setting up a nano for a handful of nano natives, curious to see set ups and what people are keeping. Thanks.
  2. Wondering if there are any other South Australian fish keepers on here besides myself, if so, what are you keeping, where did you get them from, cheers.
  3. Hi Guys, I have been doing a lot of research on how to look after my Tropheus in the last 2 weeks... Just thought to start a new thread where we can share any good information relating to websites, books etc. I will start with the following, What to feed your Tropheus and how to treat bloat. Malawi Bloat | dreaded Cichlid disease Keep them coming ... Thanks guys..
  4. These are some of the electric blue Dempsey I have kept to grow out and now they are getting some decent size...they are just damn sexy fish ..these guys are closing in on 10cm now & keeping pace with split/normal guys from the same spawn...anyways i'll shut up..enjoy the fish
  5. Look at all these fools on gumtree, I find it sad that they buy 4 oscars and a barramundi and then put it in a 3 foot fish tank they should do there research before buying fish that can grow very large. I found one a couple days ago where someone had 3 oscars in a 2 foot fish tank. I mean seriously how bad can they get? its a good thing they are selling them though, but they should never have put them in there in the first place. some examples: Oscar | Fish | Gumtree Australia Brisbane North East - Chermside West | 1035439461 twin deck fish tank stand | Fish | Gumtree Australia Cairns City - Bungalow | 1035464670 post all the links of bad fish keepers please. It is very interesting to see what they are doing.

  7. I just read this article and had to share: 10 things that non-fishkeepers just don
  8. All these things Eric speaks of are why I gave up on live rock in the eighties and use completely life or dead tissue free dead coral and try to tell others there are so many non testable substances in your waters and fish drink this water and these substances get into your fish and to a lesser extent,your corals as well. If algae are present in abundance it can be the most affective chemical filter imaginable via osmotic intake, that’s why I push the use of affective algae environments with in your systems. The bit on bubbles is not right, the types of coralsregularly in heavy bubble areas of a reef are not small polyp species. If they are there they receive at a least half the tidetimes,(half of a 24 hour period) of still waters to feed in. Plus the commercial collectors collect the corals youbuy,(as I have been a part of that for years in the past), from near dead stillareas in relation to waves and bubbles, still current affected though. Eric’s points of extreme importance to me from the article. What kills virtually all marine aquarium species. 1.All too often, the fish dies, because while it may not have ammonia to contend with, it has water filled with chemicals we can't and don't test for. The problems with zoas and other forms of corals. 2.The problem with the rationale, seemingly logical though it may be, is that success of these type species may make the tank even more incompatible for the success of stony corals because they are typically superior competitors (usually by secreting waterborne chemicals that inhibit or kill the stony corals or by the capability of overgrowing them). Why I do not use a skimmer and rely on algae instead. 2.My point is that once nutrient levels are low and conducive to a healthy aquarium, and until other secondarily important aspects of protein skimming are experimentally validated and quantified, any skimming over that required to maintain low levels of organic and inorganic pollutants is overskimming. Why? Because if the water is cleared of those things that are detrimental, it is also likely to be equally cleared of things that are beneficial. The article.

  9. Just a quick heads-up. Ravi is doing a final import this month. Details can be obtained by contacting Ravi via Aquatic Escape aquarium. I know where my tax return is going.
  10. Hi everyone is there anyone on the southside or there bouts who breed or have colony's of either Kigoma,burundi etc. Who doesn't mind passing on some advice. Im tryin to get my water conditions ideal for breeding my colony of kigoma. Would be appreciated. Cheers
  11. i arrived home last night to find that 150 litres of water had leaked all over my carpeted floor bedroom. there was only about and inche or 2 of water left inside my tank. my tank contained my colony of tropheus, breeding pair of white calvus and 5 or 6 little frontosa. thankfully all the fish in the tank were ok but just very scraed and gasping for air. i then realised that i had a breeder box in the top of the tank where there was no water. inside that breeder box was my white calvus breeding female that had a batch of fry in her shell with her. they were all dead. i tipped out the shell to find 40-50 white calvus fry. all my other fish were ok and are now in different tanks. the water leaked through an air tube that some how came disconnected fomr my air pump and then some how started siphoning out water. and tomorrow i leave to go on hoilday for 2 weeks. how could i prevent this next time?

  13. so if your sick of your current scape and wanna acheive something different. how i rescaped my 5x2x2 on a budget 2 x 20litre buckets full of 100-150mm river rocks from your local rock joint. (about $1.50 a bucket) i like the red ones do just went and picked some nice ones out. 2 x broken pots from bunnings ($0.60) were cracked bargain!!!! so i broke them more. and plants i had lying around im sure most people would. also in there is 2 drilled cave rocks they cost me about $20 but lets not include that realisticly thoughyou are looking at from $5-$20 depending on the size tanks but this is ideal for africans just like to share. so post any cheap rescapes or ideas you guys have stumbled upon.
  14. OMG I WANNNNNNT ITTTTT! Just had to share with you all. :laugh: http://www.loaches.com/articles/clown-l ... al-finnage
