  1. Hi guys, After seeing many cool threads on planted forums and other forums utilizing cool rock scapes I am trying to find a wide range of rocks. I know I am not the only one in search as there are many of my friends in Sydney, Melbourne and also on the Gold Coast (points to zane ) all in search of quality rocks. Where can we find rocks in SE QLD such as; 1. 2. 3. 4.
  2. Hey guys how long does it usually take for holey rocks to stop clouding the water? I think they must have been brand new I bought them off a private seller. My tank is very cloudy lol to the point I can't see the back of it and it's only 2 foot wide. I have done 2× 50% water changes and added a bottle of clarity (which did absolutely nothing haha). Any other suggestions?
  3. Experiences with tropheus guys. Rocks or no rocks for brreding or flat rocks?
  4. .Hey guys i have a 6x3x700 high freshwater Central/South American cichlid tank. I currently have nearly 100kg of Tahitian moon sand in there. I have decorated with thank with some small driftwood pieces and a very large piece. I'm looking to change it around and put some large rocks in the tank. I only have some of that blue rock used for quarries and retaining walls and some brown rocks i collected from my uncles farm out west which i later found out contained fools gold and tin (now being used as door stoppers and paper weights). So I'm looking for some pieces that would complement the sand and sand complement the rocks. Only one i could think of that would look nice is Texas holey rock but i don't want that to raise my Ph. So any idea's I would greatly appreciate.

  6. looking at buying heaps of dark rocks for a 10ft. any ideas what type of rock I should be looking for. not wanting lava rock.
  7. Last week I added some rocks from the garden, after several hours of making rock soup with them of course. I immediately noticed that a couple looked like they might have some rust going on. After a week however, the fish are all happy and water quality *seems* fine (full master test kit coming soon). Is this just a rock colouration or do I need to get it out, stat?
  8. Hello, Late in life we are venturing into a freshwater tropical fish aquarium. We are setting up and have a sand base, some live plants, driftwood and two lava rocks. No fish yet. Potential problem! Today I purchased four Spaghetti rocks. I have been advised not to put them into the aquarium because they make the water go alkaline. Also the holes and little crevices collect debris and waste and need to be cleaned out often. The label attached to the rock says the rock 'will enhance any aquarium.' It doesn't say for salt water aquariums only. Does anyone have Spaghetti rocks in their freshwater aquarium? Any advice or opinions will be appreciated. TIA.

  12. Hi everyone, I read a little while back some posts relating to an off the shelf, cost effective putty, for attaching corals to base rock or attaching rocks together. Can anyone tell me the name of it, as I don't seem to be able to find the thread. Pretty sure I had bookmarked it but its gone. I believe it may have been a selleys product. Cheers Gary

  17. I'm just wondering if anyone knows whether it is legal to take rocks and wood from riverways to use in a fishtank? Obviously, it would not be allowed if the area was a national park, but is there anything stopping me from going down to my local creek and helping myself (within reason of coarse)? Does anybody else do this?
  18. Hi i recently just today had been to the beach in sunny coast and have chose some nice rocks and a bit of drift wood to display in my home cichlid aquarium.
