  6. Have x2 sailfin plecos for sale 20cm (around about) $50 ono each need gone due to too big for my tank
  7. Hi Guys, Im new to the forum. I have a couple of questions 1. What is the best Driftwood to get for L080's? My tank has driftwood in it tho it had a piece of mangrove root. I moved it to a new tank and the growth of my pleco seems to have stopped and also seems to have lost his odontodes. 2. My L080 has been doing the same behaviour about 8pm at night for last couple of weeks. Up and down in the left corner then swims across threw the air stone bubbles. Then swims along the the top near the water back to the other side. My water is fine i do weekly 20% water changes. I enjoy seeing him out and about just concerned. This started happening after i took the driftwood out. I really enjoy seeing him out and about. He is my favourite fish so i guys im just a little worried.
  8. Hey guys, Ive tried google, but im not having much luck. How much would it cost for grown l046 pleco's, i understand 3-4 cm fry go for about 500 on average? Are they easily attainable in QLD? Would love to get afew, idealy a breeding pair lol. But i don't know how much it would set me back, hoping someone can share some light. cheers giles
  9. anyone out there want any plecos
  10. I currently have my 3 plecos up for sale, a 33cm Albino Gibb, 32cm Goldspot and 20cm common Sailfin. I've been offered $35 each for them by people and one of my lfs but to me if I sold them for that I'd basically be giving them away. So is this a reasonable offer or would I be getting ripped off? I was looking for 70 each for the big 2 and 50 for the Common. Am I pushing my luck? Let me know please because I need the space. Cheers
  11. Hey All. Bit of a general question. Hoping to get some some opinions on the topic. I've got a cichlid tank. The PH sits at 8.4. I've been thinking about adding a pleco. I've got an L002 Tiger pleco in another tank atm with some common bristlenose where the PH is 7.6. Everyone online seems to have catfish and plecos in cichlid tanks. I'm just wondering if the PH difference will cause any illness etc if I decide to add one. Would like to hear general opinions or experiences, good or bad, and any advice in general, on if it's not too big of a PH jump for them. Thanks

  20. About 6 months ago I bought both a mature male and female bristlenose. The whole time I've had them, they have not gotten along. Each time the female approaches the male, he chases her away. Well tonight I saw one of them was inside the ceramic log I've had in there for months. Upon closer inspection, I can see it's also full of eggs! Obviously the female (who has been quite plump looking for the past week) laid them in the past 24 hours, and the male is now taking care of business. I cannot find the female anywhere but assume she'll show up at some time. It was tonight I realised the male and female can successfully breed without ever touching each other (hence the lack of need for them to get amorous). Anyway, pic attached - I'm very excited. Will now research what I should do next to accommodate the birthing :-)
  21. arrtthh me hearties:p couldnt let it all go, had my arm twisted to keep one tank lol. always considered using one of them awesome lego pirate ships as a tank feature and seeing i just took delivery of four nice L 168's decided to put together a pirate pleco seascape lol. decided to keep the aquaworld allinone tank which is about 75-80 ltrs with a fantastic built in filtration. supplemented that with standard sponge filter, some mixed white/blue substrate and a nice plant/driftwood for the plecs to nibble on. Added ten neon tetras for a bit of color in the upper reaches and thats about it. The 168's are as happy as, plenty of hidey spots and they have settled in well with ferocious appetites. as matter of interest, these ships do float which i had expected as there are many airpockets during construction, so adding some weight helps keep them down...i got lazy and shoveled few scoops of substrate inside lol...well they gotta swab the decks with something lol.
  22. This one is for the pleco fanatics.... Can I treat a tank with these 2 meds that contains L202s and Peps without them being affected. Should I change the dosing of 1ml per 14L of big L (stronger one) and 1ml per 40L of panacur? I also have a couple clown loaches in the tank as well.. The reason behind this is that I have noticed a fish with camilanus worms. There hasnt been any new fish added to this tank in quite a few months and it has only just shown signs of it. The tank contains about 30 or so tetras and danios and some blue steel apistos as well.. One of the apistos has the worms protruding and I think it would be best to treat them all. I dont want to risk loosing the peps and the L202's though. If someone can offer some advice based on experience and not on a hunch.....
  23. im wanting to know how to setup a pond to breed plecos. all ive been gathering is they dig so idk how i can them to do this without causing a whole in the pond. im stuck and id really like to try so if anyone can help me ill be greatful corey
  24. Hi guys, I posted in the Apisto section a site that is dedicated to Apistos, however it is also dedicated to many other fish. It is in another nationality (Japanese? I am unsure) Anyways the aim of the game is to click on the navigation bar on the left hand side to load up a new page that allows you to click in the page that loads to various links of images of fish. Sometimes there are multiple names of the same fish however they are all different pictures so do not be shy and click all of them. You will be at this site for ages. Sometimes there is no navigation on the left hand side and is in one of the links on the page so click anywhere haha!
