  1. Hey guys and gals. surprised I couldnt find one of these threads already. Thought this would be a good opportunity for members to show us their pride and joy. I get my computer next week so my little friends photos will have to wait. Feel free to show off more than one if you wish.. would love to see great pics of a wide range of species. Hope you all have a good weekend and i look forward to some spectacular fish photos.
  2. Many thanks to all the BA club members who contributed to the set up and running of the BA National IBA show held in conjunction with QAH at the Caboolture show, June 2016. Congratulations to Fishchick Aquatics, Team Powerwow and Team Tofu Teddies on taking out the major prizes. Huge thanks to QAH for generously providing the venue and support, the Caboolture show society for prize money and ribbons, and Splen Bettas for sponsoring the GC trophy. Well done all!
  3. I'm curious to see everyone's DIYs. What have you done that works and possibly even failed DIYs :-).
  4. keen to see everyones sump setups, ive never setup/ran a sump before and need ideas! every detail would be great. The sump will be for a 5x3x2.5 (Lwh) and it has 3 40mm holes drilled at the top of the tank, 2 slighty higher than the other one. The stocklist for the tank will be motoro ray pups and maybe a few other things untill they grow out then into the 8x4x2.5 when it gets built. I know rays need clean water. I have had one before. What size sump tank should i use? what size return pump? What brands are the best? What media does everyone use/like? looking at a shogun 500w heater for it, what does everyone think of these? Pictures would be good. Cheers !

  21. Just a reminder to everyone that we have a working bee set down for the 2nd May to finish getting ready for the show. As you can see from the below list, there is a heap of things to get finished so we will be there most of the day. We will need as many helpers as possible even if it only for few hours, so if you are able to get there please do so. Some of the things that need to get done are; 1/ Finish fixing the fencing around the ATM machine. Install Good neighbour fence and cut and weld wire gates. 2/ Painting the old Beer & Wine section and installing Betta stand in the cupboards. Inside cupboards flat black the same as the betta stands and outside the same blue as the show stands. Also paint around ATM to match. 3/ Finish building the BEtta Stands for the smaller mobile stand. 4/ Build sides and backs onto the mobile Betta stands and put doors on bottom at the back of one. 5/ Also cut and fit clear acrylic front panels to these stands. 6/ Work out the layout for the barrier fence and cut and modify as needed. 7/ Build new stands for empty tanks behind show stands at southern end. 8/ Rebuild drainage pipes for draining tanks under these new stands. 9/ Cut new fronts for show stands - need some new 2 and 3 foot fronts. 10/ Paint new fronts and touch up rest of stands. 11/ Seal end of building new 3 phase entry. On top of all of this Cary is totally redoing all the electrical for the show stands. Graeme
