  1. Hello all, Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Aquarium background: I grew up with pet gold fish and guppies till I was 9. Set up a 3ft x 2ft x 2ft freshwater native tank when I moved up to Cairns with the ex back in 2005ish, had a few rainbow fish, an archer fish and 2 tiny barramundi in it plus a few other fish I can't quite remember. I had to separate the archer fish and the rainbows after about 2 months as the Barra grew pretty quick. They all went well and survived once separated ha ha! 2008ish I sold the lot to a mate for cheap and went travelling throughout Australia. We (the missus, and our now 4 year old son) bought a house last year back up here, (well near Tully, it's between Cairns and Townsville) and just picked up a 1200mm x 365mm x 430mm (internal measurements) tank with stand, filter and a single feisty and healthy ~230mm red tiger Oscar fish. Wish he wasn't alone though, but probably too big to add another few Oscars or other fish unless they are the same size (?). Maybe if I could put another tank right next to his with other fish in it so they get used to eachother before putting them in the same tank?? Not sure? We didn't plan on getting an Oscar but has worked out well, sort of, (from what I have learnt/read up on them, they eat all insects in the wild) so he eats every grasshopper I find in the yard (they smash our citrus trees we are trying to get growing in the yard, heaps of the buggers around at the moment!), caught another two gh's today, (1 was 75mm long (gone instantly), the other about 100mm that he is still struggling with, but he's getting through it slowly ha ha!). He's been named Big Bad Barry by our son. He is sort of our pet now (he has heaps of character!), but I really want Natives again so not sure what to do... Would really love a Mangrove Jack, but Barra are much easier (and heaps cheaper!) to find... Not sure what to do... Keep him, get more fish in there with him, get another tank with natives or just sell him?... Hmmm... We would never let the Oscar go in the wild either way! So yeah, that's basically my whole aquarium knowledge background so far. Looking forward to learning more from the wealth of knowledge on this forum from all of you! Kind regards Steve

  12. ANGFA Qld has ditched it's clunky old website and is working on a new model that will hopefully be a lot more useful for everyone. As part of the change we've also decided to have a 12 month trial of making our monthly magazine 'In-Stream' publicly accessible and if after 12 months we've retained enough members, we're hoping to keep it that way. In-Stream covers a wide range of topics, including aquatic habitats and conservation, fish profiles, general husbandry, and travel stories. We've still got work to do, but if you're not familiar with ANGFA it might be worth a sticky beak. We're always looking for more articles so if you've got something interesting you'd like to share, let us know. I'm also happy to put up announcements and calendar entries from the fish-keeping community to let other ANGFA members know about them if you want to pass them on to me. At our meetings we have guest speakers, a shop with dry goods and books, and a (small) auction after the talk. There are always some fantastic bargains - last time we had display quality adult Bosemani breeders selling out at well under $10 each. The next meeting is June 12 and new faces are always welcome. It would be great to see some of you there.
  13. I have had someone ask me if Female Paradise Fish (Macropodus opercularis) Allowed in Qld ? any info would be appreciated to pass on. Also if they are allowed and you have some for sale please let me know and I will pass it on also.
  14. I have two feeders in a 60litre tub outside (mini pond) will they freeze over winter???! How cold can the water get before they die??

  16. Hi everyone, I'm after some quality African Cichlid breeders in qld. I want to have a few to buy my stock from in order to build top notch Cichlid colonies for breeding and show. Any help is appreciated.
  17. I was reading the QLD government's Non-indigenous-prescribed list and I read what appears to say only male paradise fish can legally be kept in captivity. Has anybody heard anything about this before? Here is the link: Non-indigenous fish - prescribed list | Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry | Queensland Government

  20. Hey guys my partner is moving to Brisbane From Bendigo Vic around the 23/9/12 she has a 8x5 cage trailer that is approx ¾ full so we have a little room there as well as in the car, and are offering to help transport your items at a fair price, could fit a Engine or gearbox or multiple smaller items. I will be flying to Melbourne and travelling with her back to Brisbane I’ll be staying one night in Bendigo and the next morning will be leaving and be driving straight threw, only stopping for fuel so will be in Brisbane early hours the next morning approx 20 hours travel time can pick items up in some areas of Melbourne when I fly in. Together we have good experience and knowledge of car parts, Snakes (have current reptile license)and Fish (ill be bringing some up for myself) we are happy to transport any of these items at a good price to help us cover cost of the trip. We will be looking to travel the coastal root but may detour if it’s worth our while to do so we would prefer items are dropped to her address in Bendigo and picked up from our home address in Brisbane, but can how ever make some other arrangements if the price is right or we are happy to pick something up along the root travelled no detours will be taken unless adequately compensated to do so, also we will not be waiting extended periods for someone to meet up. We are happy for you to pay when you pick your item/animal up from us but will do it a little cheaper if you pre pay we will not store your item for any extended time we would expect them to be picked up within a few days, if it’s a animal pickup will be the day of us reaching Brisbane we will text you to update expected arrival time but as was said it’s expected to be early hours the following morning from leaving Bendigo. I understand some people may be concerned with trusting a un known person with their item or animal I am happy for anyone to visit me at my home address and view my licence to verify who I am and where I live, If items are been dropped to Bendigo address we would prefer it to be a few days prior to this date so it can be loaded on the trailer when her other items are as well to help workout optimum loading. You can pm me your questions or for a faster response you are welcome to call me on 0432 712 253 Prefer cash however may barter
  21. The ANGFA Qld April Meeting is being held this Friday (April 13 - details HERE). The talks should be good and the auction for the last couple of meetings have included a good range of blue eyes and rainbows (Australian and New Guinea) going for a couple of dollars each or less. There's usually a good selection of plants at the auction as well and the shop has discounted dry goods (foods, ferts, bags, books etc). It'd be great to see some new faces. Non-members are welcome to come along and check it out.

  24. The next Australian and New Guinea Fishes Association (ANGFA) QLD meeting is programmed for Friday 13 April. Gavin Brown will be speaking about turtles and Greg Ure will speak about his fish-farm tours in Singapore (following Aquarama). ANGFA QLD meetings are held at the Bar Jai Hall in Clayfield, Brisbane (Alexandra St, near the intersection with Sandgate Road). Meetings are held on the second Friday of every second month, starting in February (unless they clash with a public holiday or long weekend). Meetings start at 8.00 pm and usually end at around 11.00 pm. Meetings generally consist of two talks and end with an auction of fish and plants. We run a drink stall, a raffle, and a small shop that sells fish food, plastic bags, nets, books, etc. We conduct Field trips at various times during the year so that our members can catch their own. You can find the ANGFA QLD website here: The Home of ANGFA(Qld) - Home
