  1. QLDAF is moving...... We are moving the forum to a new server. The forum has had some slow times and caused dreaded chat-lag. Chatters have noticed and have been heard to say chat lags particularly around 10.00 pm. While that is past my bedtime, we need to address this. To combat this we are moving to a secure solid state server with monitored security. The expectation is this will give us 10x the current speeds. This will come at a cost, so we are declaring the move towards 10 Sponsors. That means there are 4 spots open. If you own a store, and are interested, or if you know a great store who is interested let them know that spots are available. We already have some applicants, but want to ensure that the correct choice is made to ensure that they are focused on our members, and also compliment the values and standard are existing sponsors have set. Applications are to be made confidentially to either myself or webmaster.... feel free to send a PM or give us a call. Please do not reply here. Please bear with us during the move.... hopefully we all survive to the other side.....
  2. Ok, I have done a summary of the project. Personally I would like to see these moved from sticky threads as they are pretty dead. see below. I do however think they are a great idea, but perhaps need a bit more thought into the execution & clarity to see future projects survive & prosper. I would be keen to see a new group of projects launched & this also might breath some life into the species specific sections...? I myself would prefer a more varied species list, all the Malawi's were mbuna. Nothing wrong with it just saying, and the Tangs seemed to be out of everybodys reach. or maybe that is the point of the 'rare' project, everybody wants some but few have the $$... What does everybody think? Metraclima sp. 'zebra gold'"Charo" Last post  09-04-2013 Matt A – acquired some, nobody else replied. Fish appears available but not prevalent. [h=2]Cynotilapia zebroides "cobue"[/h] Last post  18-10-2013 Steveandjules had fry available  17-10-2013 Nobody else replied. [h=2]Cynotilapia zebroides "chewere"[/h] Last post  27-11-2013 No body obtained the fish. Appears the fish is lost? [h=2]Metriaclima pulpican[/h] Last post  07-08-2014 No body on the thread obtained the fish. Stated that the fish was prevalent but needed some quality control. [h=2]Neolamprologus kungweensis[/h] Last post  09-04-2015 No body in the thread obtained the fish Stated that the fish were being breed in Sydney, still appears rare. [h=2]Altolamprologus compressiceps "Muzu"[/h] Last post  06-05-2015 Too much reading about the collection location & what is actually available & what fish this ‘project’ was supposed to be targeting. From a quick skim, Waltec breed them, Shon knew a bloke with 2 pairs & Ian had some, I could be wrong, I quickly skimmed through (looked at piccies) [h=2]Cynotilapia sp 'hara'[/h] Last post  29-06-2015  Michael_M had fry available -  28-03-2014 These fish are available interstate (perhaps locally) in small numbers, I cannot speak for quality.

  6. I need to move in the next few months, all are right, except the tank. Any tips to move as it is 6x2x70 full of plants, around diy substrate: 80kg bunnings sand, dino dung, etc... Fish looks fine except some small peppermint BNs and shrimps, not sure how to find them, but plants and substrate are my most concern as I may need a few weekend to take out plants, move, and set it back ;( I have a 2ft guppy, which i can try to select some best plants to move first just to be sure. A 200l drum to store the big fish.... Anyone done before has some tips for me or notes to beware? Thanks...

  18. Ok after keeping freshwater fish for 30 yrs on and off, am thinking of converting my 6x2x2 African tank into saltwater. Brengun your partly to blame after seeing your recent additions!! So I have started the research and seems a little daunting with mixed views on the whole cost and mainteance side of things. Just wanted to get some of your feedback guys. Is it that hard and or expensive? First off was thinking of starting with fish and live rock only. So am I right in thinking I just need to add a skimmer to my sump (4x1x1 3500l pump) and couple of wave makers for filtration hardware? And with water was going to collect from seaway every fornight. Any input welcomed. Oh and DFF I know you will be reading every post lol, so wouldn't mind comming up to Pet city for a look and chat if thats alright, if so what days you on mate. Cheers Shane

Just wondering how big they have to be before i can move them into their own tank when the shock of moving them wont kill them/stress them out? They are blue pindani's and i have about 40 of them at the moment.

  22. I have been fighting a loosing battle with some trumpet snails for a while now so i have decided to do a full clean and move. My office is where i have my main tank a small 3 footer with a number of tetras an some run of the mill BN. The tank has been in the office for about 2 years never been moved or had a full clean so i need some help here guys. My plan is to do a complete scrub and clean with new gravel complete filter clean so on and so forth. I have a smaller 2 foot cube with filtration and lights that i was going to get up and seed with water from the main tank as not too shock the fish. but alas it stands empty atm with no gravel. My Plan is to ask for help then start in about 6 or 7 days as i have some time off from work. Please guys any help with the basics to doing this task would be greatly appreciated. What gear other than the usual buckets and such should i be looking for and what would be the best stuff to clean the tank back to something near new. If the fish are happy in the smaller tank then i will keep them there and get the main tank up and where i want it to be instead of what im looking at now. My plan is to start a colony of endlers and maybe some shrimp but the endlers are where i want to start. I want to have a number of plants for young to hide and hopefully start selling them to the LFG (charges 8 bucks each) but i want to get over this clean and move first. Thanks in advance guys. Damo
