  1. So after much deliberation and persuasion (Fiancé) I have managed to agree on a new display tank. I originally wanted to get a custom tank made L 3ft x W 3ft x H 2ft sadly I was struggling to get a cabinet maker to make a cabinet. My DIY skills and lack of time also hindered my ability to build a quality ADA styled cabinet and I estimated that a DIY cabinet would cost a minimum of $500 in materials. So I opted for the below. Concept Art: The basics: 4ft Aqua Serene 340L Tank and Cabinet in White includes filter - $1169 Black Vinyl Self-adhesive Wrap for Background - $20 3 x 20kg Bunnings play sand - $23 Approx. 30Kg of Texas Holey Rock - $210 White Egg Grate - $18 Otto PF2000N filter - $45 Approx. 20 Tonna Tesselata Shells - $16 Filter media for supplied Aqua One Nautilus 1400: 125ml Purigen – 250ml bought for swapping during recharging - $28 Purigen the bag - $15 Coral rubble 10mm 2kg - $8 Filter mesh bag - $7 Standard filter media including sponges and ceramic rings inc. in filter – bio balls replaced with coral rubble. Estimated total cost (excluding delivery costs, additional stock and plants): $ 1559 Stock: 8 x Paracyprichromis nigripinnis + (Dependant on successful breeding) 2 x Synodontis Perticola 3 x Neolamprologus caudopunctatus (to be replaced by the Neolamprologus Leleupi as I suspect the caudos have a year left of their life) 10 x Cyprichromis Leptosoma or equivalent (need to buy) 2 x Black Calvus (need to buy an additional Calvus) 4 x Neolamprologus Leleupi (need to buy) Breeding Colony of Shelldweller (need to buy) Rock Style: Loosely based on Iwagumi – http://aquascapinglove.com/basics/introduction-iwagumi-layout/ Plants: Vallis – Limited use behind large rocks Anubias – Mid / Foreground of Rockwork Example rockwork and shells purchased to date: Comments to date: The tank is sadly out of stock at the distributor and will take 3-4 weeks to be delivered expected mid-July. On a positive note it does leave time for the bacteria on the filter media to grow. Spare ceramic rings and coral rubble are sitting in my filter in my other tank since 16/06/2016 to enable growth of beneficial bacteria to aid with cycling. I will be transferring the Paracyprichromis nigripinnis at a later date, I have a few females who are holding and would like to grow a small colony – sadly the fry are being eaten by either my Calvus or the Synodontis catfish in my old tank. The black vinyl wrap is 900cm long by 60cm high, I only need 120cm and a further 100cm for my other tank. Maybe available for sale after i have set up. Shout outs and thanks to: The TechDen – For offering an extremely easy and professional service. Nothing was too much trouble even when I phoned and asked for specific sized pieces of Texas holey rock. They sent MMS to me of different rocks and I bought the rocks I wanted over the phone 20 minutes later. Exceptional service. Collecting and buying additional rocks from them this weekend. Petcity – For providing an unbeatable price on the tank. @Shon982 – For providing advice and quality Paracyprichromis nigripinnis who have been rock solid and started breeding. J Other QLDAF community members from posts: Sand: http://www.qldaf.com/forums/showthread.php?t=130001 I will update this with more pictures and steps once I get the tank.

  17. We have been commissioned to setup and stock a Rift Lake tank for a customer. The tank measures 200 x 70 x 70 and will be filtered with a 400lt sump and an FX5. I was given free reign as to stocking and the aquascape. I wasn't able to visit the Malawian Lake bottom for inspiration. I did get to visit the Kaikoura coastline of the South Island of New Zealand and found plenty of inspiration. I spent a long time collecting rocks that were of the same type and varying sizes. We then measured out the dimensions of the aquarium on the ground and placed the rocks into formations within boundaries. I would spend some time considering each placement until it just worked. Once we were happy with layout we started the process of placing the rocks into the aquarium. Not easy considering the waiting of two of the boulders (32kg each). The setup process is still going on. I will be connecting the plumbing for the sump in the next few days. I am very excited about it all. Thanks for looking.
  18. I'm thinking of going on a trip to Africa in a few years and going to the lakes like Malawi and tanganika. Has anyone gone there before? If so was it good?
  19. I was down at Lake Kurwongbah on the weekend and I was in shock when two massive bright orange Oscars swam past my feet. They were chasing the small fish all over the place. I'm not sure what to do?? A: Leave them in peace as they look like they have been there for years. Or B: Try and net them and put them in a mates tank?? What does everyone think on this matter??
