  1. Wednesday someone is coming to cut up some pieces of lattice panels to shape with an opening in the middle to place over the bathtub ponds, the opening in the centre of the lattice panels so plants that are in there can stick out, once those pieces are done and in place I'll look into ordering more fish for both tubs as I only have 3 Murray River Rainbows left in one tub and none in the other, so question is, what do I go with? Do I get more Murray River Rainbows, should I look into getting Threadfin Rainbows, Spotted Blue Eyes, Honey Blue Eyes, Empire Gudgeons.

  3. Hey everyone, I am new to owning an aquarium, so far i had cycled my tank and i have introduced 2 new fish, a Red Terror cichlid, aswell as a Oscar cichlid. Orignally they were in my first tank which is a 2.5ft (90L) and i was getting some advice from my cousin, knowing i had to upgrade tanks to keep them about 4 days after getting these fish i had gotten a 4ftx2ftx2ft and it holds 450 liters, i was just wondering if it is safe to keep these 2 fish in the same tank? i have some terracotta pots for them to use as protection, at first the RT would nip at my oscar, but since changing to my new tank (2 days ago) it seems he hasnt been attacking him. but im not so sure if i can keep them in the same tank especially when they get bigger. My RT is almost always hiding under his pot but recently started coming out, and everytime i feed them my oscar will eat rarely with me watching, and my RT never seems to eat, i leave floating pellets in there at night and morning but im never sure if he eats, i have tried sinking pellets but he doesnt even go for them just watches them sink, is there anything wrong? or are they still frightened after moving? Thanks, Travis

  6. Hi all, First of all hope I'm in the right place here, am more than happy to be shifted if the mods think it better suited in another thread. As the title suggests, I've been stalking various fish forums for sometime now. Have picked up a couple of goods buys through this one's trading section, and have done quite a deal of reading via this and others. I now have a 6x2x2 set up with an FX5 and a 300W jager heater. Its currently pumping away in the lounge, cycling with 4 comet goldfish hopefully 'filthing' up the system and developing the necessary bacteria for me. Been on the go with fish for about 2 weeks now. The filter came second hand, and was only off line for about 12 or so hours, so I'm hoping I've managed to keep some culture working there. I've found what I think is a nice piece of wood, cleaned it up and soaked it for 2 weeks, and its now in with some pool filter sand and river rocks. I'm hoping to set up a SA river system of sorts. Don't have any planting yet, as the stock list will probably dictate whether that will be a waste of time anyway. With that in mind, I've now come to stocking and that's my question here for now. I have an older tank (picked up from a relative years ago, about 3") and it currently has 3 x 'Orange heads' geos (the largest, male I think, about 3", others about 2", have seen two batches of eggs from a pair. gobbled up in time by tankmates), 2 x native rainbows (each about 3"), 2 x clown loaches (about the 3" mark) and 3 x black tetras. Pretty sure the loaches have dined on some cavier here! My intention is to take the Geos out and put them into the 6"er, along with some mates. My current thoughts are: 3 x Orange head Geos (existing) + another 3 Some Jurapari Geos 4 or so Severum Blue Acara Uaru some dithers (tetras?) How does this sound? Am I overstocking? Am I mixing species that won't stand each other (I understand that egg laying can provide a whole new set of issues here.)? Any suggestions/advice are/is welcome. Thanks for the read, Cheers, Geoff.
  7. Hello everyone, First of all, I’d like to apologise for not being very active on this forum apart from the buying & selling section and mostly being a CD-ROM on here. Basically, I’m looking after a friend’s aquarium while he’s away. When I had a closer look at his fishes (after vaguely recall his partner mentioned a recent yet consistent drop in fish numbers), I’ve noticed a few irregular characteristic (Photo 1 to 7) on some of his fishes (Neon/Cardinal Tetras mostly). Photo 1. Possible fin rot or fungus growth. Photo 2. Taken with flashes on possibly diseased Neon/Cardinal. Photo 3. Irregular fin and head shape on another Neon/Cardinal Tetra. Photo 4. Relatively healthy looking Neon/Cardinal Tetra within his tank. Photo 5. Possibly diseased Neon/Cardinal Tetra. Photo 6. More possibly diseased Neon/Cardinal Tetra. Photo 7. More possibly diseased Neon/Cardinal Tetra. 3 weeks ago, I’ve transferred a small patch of Java Moss & a few shrimp from his tank to my own. The mosses appeared to be growing healthily, but the three shrimp had disappeared overnight and one was found beside the tank the next morning. Nothing suspicious could be recalled and related to today's suspicion. Today, I’ve noticed that fins on my neon tetras are shredding, I’m suspecting I might have brought over some sort of diseases or bacteria from his tank to mine. Photo 8. The most severely damaged Neon among my tank. I’m just trying to identify what’s wrong with them and hopefully treat them. On another note, prior to this, I’ve also lost a colored widow from unconfirmed causes with signs possibly suggesting a bacteria related disease or aggressive territorial behaviours Water parameter had comes back perfect from 2 different shops with small amount of Nitrite found in both testes. Water change prior to the water tests was 2 months ago, the person who ran the testes had indicated an impression on the readings from the test and the frequency of water changes. Ph:- 6.8 Ammonia:- close to nil, <0.02ppm Nitrate:- close to nil, <0.02ppm Nitrite:- acceptable range of nitrite present but will be absorbed by plants. Gh:- N/A Kh:- 161.1ppm Size of tank:- 18” x 9” x 11” Approx. 26L Temperature °C:- 27oC Been running for:- 4 months Filtration:- Internal Filter Fish in tank:- Colored widows x 5, Neon Tetras x 11, feeder fishes x 11 and Kuhli loaches x 3 Plants in Tank:- Water cress (Nasturtium microphyllum), Water Spinach (Ipomoea aquatic), Java Moss Feeding:- Flakes, once a day Last water change:- 3 days ago Water change every Monthly or longer

  9. My poor old 3ft community tank had seen better days. The gravel was so deep, I couldn't vac it well. The plants were being eaten by clownloaches amonst others. This before photo was taken when things weren't too bad, it went downhill from then. I started a new tank and the featherfins and danios are gone from the 3ft community and the angelfish, SAE and clowns will be going to the new tank when its stable. I plan to put my 4 common bristlenoses in this 3ft tank so I thought I would spruce it up a bit. Not a lot of point to fixing plants atm but they will get some attention later. I spent hours painstakingly removing the thick gravel and it was chockers full of rubbish. I vac'd and carefully netted it out but at times, I couldn't even see the fish! I installed a canister filter, aquaworld 1100 and that cleared a lot of my mess, together with the large sponge filter and power filter. To hold back the remaining gravel and to make it look like a beach retaining wall, I put smooth pebbles against it. Then I put in sand and a soaked piece of driftwood. I had sawn it to fit a few days ago and the saw marks haven't faded down yet. I also added a new jager heater, complete with heaterguard for when the bristlenose get moved in.
