  1. I am looking for royal whiptails and red lizard whiptails for a colony tank I am setting up. They will be the only catfish in the tank with some non-agressive fish.
  2. I am trying to chase some bright blue cherry shrimp does any one have any for sale cheers
  3. This is a smallish spawn with 25 -30 fry. A good number to work with and getting great growth rates. They are only 9 weeks old. Should be ready to jar in 2 -3 weeks. Just love when they recognize you as the bringer of food and swarm the corner of the tank you're on. Used that to my advantage last night to take some photos, so dunked my finger in. Have to say, they all had a taste to make sure I wasn't food. Some power behind some of those little nips too!
  4. Just wondering what are suitable tankmates for a pair of whiptail catfish? They will be housed in a standard 4ft tank

  7. I thought I had a pair of Royal Whiptails, the male is the smaller of the 2 and has had definite bristles for months now (first pic). The larger one I thought was female seems to be developing very fine hairs on "her" snout (second pic). Do females get any bristles or none at all?

  9. Bought a couple of whiptails the other day and was wondering a few things like what size do they mature to breed ? Do they do better as a larger group? How long can they live .didnt buy them to breed they just look cool and hopefully when they grow i can put in with my bg knife ?
  10. Gday guys, Im after a royal pleco (L190/L191). Specifically a female to try and pair with my male. Small to medium but may contemplate an adult if its age is known. I have already been around looking and it seems no ones got them at the moment. I know they are hard to find so just looking at the moment and i should be ready to buy in about a month or so, but if one pops up now i will take it. Any help appreciated Thanks Ted.

  18. Hi guys, Thought some might appreciate these pictures;
  19. Hi everyone, in light of my upcoming fish shed (more space for new fishes), I have been thinking about fish I would like to eventually keep. The royal panaque has always been one of those one-of-these-days fish, but really I know very little about keeping catfish (though allot about keeping various exotics). Could any of the people who have experience with this species give me some info? Recommended diet, tankmates (if possible), growth rate, where to source etc. Any info would be great. Also if anyone could advise on similar species that have long whiskers, as they are one of my favourite features. I wouldn't be close minded on other similar fish if you have suggestions/personal favourites. though the panaque price is the limit on what i would spend. they are pretty special so i wouldnt sneeze at it. thanks

  21. I was disappointed to find the pair of royal whips I brought from the auction on Saturday were dead in my tank last night. They seemed ok on Sunday as they were munching on some wood, but not sure what happened after that. They were in a quarantine tank with my other purchases and they were the only ones that were dead. All others happily eating etc. Other fish included pair texas, pair angels, three baby plecs and pair long fin b/nose. Quarantine tank is 4'x18"x18" I am a little stumped as to what was the cause of the death, but both had bloody marks around their fins and a bit on their belly. NOt sure if this was pre or post death. I have seen similar on hoplo catfish that have died - normally from being harassed by a breeding male. I am interested to know if the other two pairs of royal whips that were sold on the night are still OK. If anyone out there has any ideas on why the royals went belly up, I would be happy to hear your thoughts. Might help me for future purchases.
  22. Just thought id share this pic with everyone as im pretty impressed with this shot considering my digital camera is about 6 years old lol, let me know what you think Jase...
  23. I have 5 of these about 7cm not including tails, would they be OK in a community tank with a sail-fin pleco, a colony of albino afra and a colony of yellow tail acei? I just want to make sure they will be compatible with my cichlids. Thanks
  24. Does anyone have any for sale? what's the going price? Anyone ever bred these in captivity? I find these very interesting and wouldn't mind getting some
