  2. EOI. I'm Looking for rare large growing Americans, cheers.
  3. 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.

  5. Welcome guys. We had 6 members indicate that they desired to work with this fish so here is your section to discuss your work. The success of this project is in their hands. This fish is commonly known as Cynotilapia Hara "Gallifry Reef", however I am told the above name is correct and beleive we should try and use the correct name. (Thanks matt). I suspect the challange will be seeking fish (I think there is a few colonies in NSW?) and ensuring we have fish from different sources, and sharing the details of how to breed successfully, how to raise successfully and the required culling to ensure that Quality fish are produced. If the 6 members could all introduce themselves and there involvement with the fish as a starting point. Any other members are free to join, and ofcourse members are free to leave at any time. Steve
  6. Love all the weird and wonderful fish,etc that inhabit this great planet of ours and thought id share some of these guys I found after reading into some pretty rare and unique ones recently ... Gymnotus Coatesi (Very rare and no 'common name' as yet) Flash Tiger Knifefish (Gymnotus tigre) Reticulated or Arowana Knifefish (Papyrocranus afer) Dragon Knifefish (Parapteronotus Hasemani) Royal Knifefish (Chitala Blanchi) Clown Knifefish (Chitala Chitala)
  7. Welcome guys. We had 8 members indicate that they desired to work with this fish so here is your section to discuss your work. The success of this project is in their hands. The biggest challenge is going to be to find this fish, as they have became very rare. Last I saw were at Pet City about 4 years ago...... If the members could all introduce themselves and there involvement with the fish as a starting point. Any other members are free to join, and ofcourse members are free to leave at any time. Steve
  8. All the threads are raised for the fish that members have elected to work with as our named projects. Altolamprologus compressiceps "Muzi" Boulenger, 1898 Betta macrostoma Regan, 1910 Gymnogeophagus balzanii Perugia, 1981 Cynotilapia sp. 'hara' Not yet described Neolamprologus kungweensis Poll, 1956 Metriaclima sp. 'zebra gold' "Charo" Not yet described Cynotilapia zebroides "Chewere" Johnson, 1975 Cynotilapia zebroides "Cobue" Johnson, 1975 Metriaclima pulpican Tawil, 2002 The first challenge is sourcing fish, and preferably fish from different lines, and then ensuring that our practices are producing quality, maybe by trading spare males, maybe swapping fry. I thought I would raise this as some members have had some interesting things to say to me about hwo to approach this project. This is a member driven project so I thought we could allow this section for a general discussion of ways to progress and ideas. Steve
  9. Welcome guys. We had 5 members indicate that they desired to work with this fish so here is your section to discuss your work. The success of this project is in their hands.

  10. you know how this works. Missus wants pretty for starters lol and rare is they only way to go which I try to tend to buy. I have a spare 6x2x2 for something but what. I do like the look of the Lichnochromis acuticeps but don't think the missus is a big fan. thoughts? Keep in mind......rare and pretty lol
  11. Desperately seeking these Adoketas and Laetacara Dorsigeras that have TRULY RED breasts as opposed to purply-black.Willing to help others track down rare central and South Americans,dwarf and otherwise,in melbourne.
  12. The old list can be found here Info: Rare Fish List, Breeding attention required!! (Please Read!) PLease note that I did not compile this list. I have only tried to update the status of the fishes in the new list. Updated List July 2013 This list does not say what fishes are in Australia in total, but only the rarer fishes. It also does not include species that can be imported. This list can be particularly useful to bring back the very rare-probably lost species back to less common status. But it will take time, patience and motivated breeders. Common to Rare can be found in shops Very rare to Probably lost are the ones that need some work It still needs work as I do not know everything ... So please come forward to chip in if you have some details. Thank you.
  13. Just thought it'd be a cool idea to let people show off their rare or not so commonly seen fish, whether it be bichirs, Wakins or wild type bettas! Post pics up with what you've got, I'm really interested to see what's around! And I'm sorry I can't start the ball rolling, but the rarest fish I have at the moment is probably a white cloud lol Buuuut, here's a pic of a Robertsoni off the net anyway, haven't seen any around for a while...
  14. Rare fully black flower horn. Found this on gumtree. RARE FULLY BLACK FLOWERHORN FULLY GROWN | Fish | Gumtree Australia Logan Area - Greenbank | 1039291589
  15. I have this Trio of Spear tails The male has a green face a red patch near neck blue saddle yellow tux and a flame pattern tail. I've asked experts in Thailand and USA and I've been told it a unique colour form and rare because they have not seen it before and there are no photos on the net of it. here are some average photos of the trio.
  16. Here are some shots of my new flame angel, an Aberrant morph. Very different and awesome! basically they lack most to all black pigment. This guys like a red hot fire cracker under the lights!
  17. Welcome guys. We had 5 members indicate that they desired to work with this fish so here is your section to discuss your work. The success of this project is in their hands. This fish is commonly known as Cynotilapia afra (chewere), however I am told the above name is correct and beleive we should try and use the correct name. (Thanks matt). I suspect the challenge will be seeking fish knowing Tutters has been seeking this one for a while.

  21. I just wanna get a couple of names I can add to my breeding collection hopefully that are on the rarer side not crazy rare just not really popular ones I have Umbees Festae Freddie's Would love to add a couple more pairs to my collection just not sure which type
  22. The time has come to put your hand up if you wish to committ to the project. I am open to the way the group working with a species wishes to work together, and there will be a pinned thread for the species nominated based on the people who are putting there hand up. Please only vote for a fish you are willing to committ to. I would invisage that for rare species we can as a group seek out the fish from any sources in this state or interstate to secure breeding groups within Queensland. I would hope that for the hobbyist with more modest pockets, the opportunity to share in shipping costs, and also if you end up with all one sex swap amongst the group, will help encourage involvement. I invisage that we name between 3 to 5 species to work with based on numbers interested, and hope to see a mix of fish to seek all budgets and tastes.
  23. QLDAF is primarily based on hobbyists supporting others hobbyists. We often here of fish species that have been lost or became very rare in the hobby, or that the quality has declined over the years. We would like as a group to try and address this with the Rare and Quality Fish Project. Our aim is as a group to name a number of species of fish in need of quality improvements through selective breeding, and a number species that have became rare in the project. The fish will be named based on the number of people who will commit to the project for that species. We cannot make it happen with one person. Once a fish is named the project thread for that species will be raised and stickied in the appropriate species section by a moderator. Included will be the names of the people involved in the project. For a Rare Species Project, once the thread for that species has been raised. Any source for the fish is invited to be either posted directly or informed to one of the moderation team. The aim is to find the species and propagate them for the good of the hobby. For a Fish Quality Project, once the thread has been raised it is expected that photos of what is considered to be a quality example are raised and highlighted by the team, and sources of quality fish sought out and shared. Please nominate fish species for consideration for either Project in this thread and we will examine the species and attempt as a group to give something back to the hobby.
