  2. Hello all I am going to be moving back to fresh from a reef tank shortly and would like some advice on what fresh water fish to go into a planted 6x2x2. My last fresh setup was mainly africans cichlids. and I have a small planted nano that I will decommission shortly that has just one otocinclus and I love the work it does to maintain your tank. So basically I havent really had anything to do with fresh inn over 10 years so I am a little out of wack and would love some input on a fish list please TIA Florix

  9. I currently have 3 clusters of eggs in separate tanks, one is fine the are free swimming and doing well, i have another in a tank with a young male who is fanning away from the eggs and I'm not sure if air is getting to them, there is an air stone right beside the log will that help? And I have another batch that's in my small colony 2m 4f but the eggs have been split in two bunches one portion is still in the log with the male fanning them the other is just out in the open beside a sponge filter. I had a crack at making my own tumbler but I made it to small for all the eggs lol, I was thinking I could get a piece of pvp pipe maybe 80mm diameter and a new chux and rubber band around one end,sit the eggs in the pipe with an air stone underneath on low and affix the pipe maybe 10-15 cm above the air stone. Would this work? Or alternatively should I buy a ''real'' egg tumbler? If so anyone know where to get one on the gold coast? e Thanks for any input and advice its much appreciated! Cheers Mike

  13. hey guys, i have a 3000L system that i mainly use for african cichlid fry however, i ended up throwing some fish in i got from random fish shops. Soon the fry started dropping off, some would lie listless on the bottom before dieing and most would loose a bit of colour too, within 24hrs of these symptoms the fish is dead and now normally has both its eye's popping out (not noticed pre death). seems to only affact certain species of fish and at sizes, from 10mm-50mm. fry would drop off at rate of 1-4 fish per day depending on species and then slowly stabilize with about 20-30% of the original batch surviving. (whilst the fish are dieing at a rate of 1-4 the rest of the batch seem to be in perfect health.) this system i ended up bombing with chlorine which quickly fixed the problem however it has now popped up in a 5x2 fry tank. im pretty sure this is not a water quality issue it may play a part but there is something else there that I would love some help identifying... any input much appreciated have tried treating with full and half doses of formalin and multi purpose but no change

  17. A few questions for those knowledgable in the field of catfish (plecos/bristenose). I am starting a 4ft coral african cichlid tank (mainly male peacocks).. I have 3 juvi peps atm and am keen to get more peps & different plecos if I can. Also see if theres any chance of em breeding too. My questions are; Q1/ I have coral grit substrate & coral in tank - I was going to make some caves out of clay for the peps, disguised in coral grit... would that keep them happy or do i need driftwood (just worried about tannins colouring my water and heard some need wood to eat). 3/ I was thinking of getting juvi plecs and grow them out (see what sex end up with) as im on a bit of a budget and I seem to have bloody expensive taste... I figure (say getting 4 peps) I have some chance of getting mixed sex? 4/ What types do you think are available that would go well in my tank. See I want to make it like a reef tank and dont really like the brown ones.. and see all the unusual ones are up there in $$. I see you may have some L066 in future.. what would they be worth for eg? And would they suit? Can you think of any non-brown ones, available in australia & not worth more than gold that would do ok in my setup? I have looked at the L numbers and.. so many numbers, similarities, rarities, $$!.. its a bit overwhelming to someone thats just starting out! 5/ How many do you think i could have in a 4ft stocked with africans? 6/ Can you mix say two different types (males/females of each) in one tank? Would they cross breed? (eg. peps & ...) Any other reccomendations for me and my (seemingly unusual) setup of africans in a coral tank? Thanks for your time in advance..
