  2. I have used a couple of old ehiem U-pipes with strainers and taps, and a link to the garden hose for the last few years, and broke them both in one weekend. I feel the need to reinvent the system. Criteria, must attach to a garden hose to go out to the garden and in again. Wonder if I can do two tanks at the same time? If they had a common system would hydrostatic pressure equalise the depths? Any ideas welcome.
  3. So I went to the Doctor's today with Mum to get her blood results back that were taken on Tuesday and results came back with (after many years of being unwell) Hashimoto's Disease, after 42 years of nursing, Mum has never treated or even heard of Hashimoto's Disease, it has attacked Mum's thyroid which is now non existent and is the cause of why she has been so ill for years, the disease also shuts down organs in the body, so she is now on medication to help stop or even slow down the disease. So, as the thread says, "A quick trip to the Doctor's turns into..." Mum going into the local fish store to get some crickets for her two Green Tree Frogs and then walking out with 6 Blind Cave Tetras (Mexican Tetras/Astyanax mexicanus/A. mexicanus), after me shutting down the native tank in the lounge due to mainly funds and putting all plants and Desert Gobies in the pond outside in the garden, Mum get's in the car and tells me she wants the tank set up because she bought some fish, I ask what she got and tells me "Pretty pink fish", I have a look when we get home and see that she has gotten Blind Cave Tetras, she wanted them because they were pretty pink and also blind, so I have set the tank up again, which I have to admit I'm a bit pissed off about because I want native fish in the tank, not normal local fish store fish, haha, but I guess it's better than nothing. So she comes home with Blind Cave Tetras, bags of aqaurium gravel, tap water conditioner and tells me to set the tank up again, so now we have a tank back in the lounge with no natives, damn it! I want natives! haha.

  10. Have 3 copies for some lucky cichlid finatics. There are 3 copies of Celebrating Cichlids book is personally signed by Ad Konings in El Paso so if you are quick you might be able to pick up something a little special. This took a lot of work and effort to make it happen and rather than sell them dearer and profiteer from it we would like to see a couple of lucky QLDAF members pick up this great book and enjoy it and be a bit of a talking point. Please note that you can not purchase more than one. https://www.thetechden.com.au/Celebrating_Cichlids_by_Ad_Konings_p/celeb-cich.htm

  20. Hey guys, I need an air pump for my 6 x2 x 2. I went to set up several of the ones I own last night...none of them pump air towards the bottom... SO the question is.. can anyone recommend one that will blast the crap out of the water at that deep? I want two valves so I can have at least two sponge filters going...but any airstone will do, I just need to oxygenate the water. Reason for quick reply, I am going to age of aquariums in the next hour!
