  1. Hi does any one know whats happened to my Jag, he looks as though he wants to be a Blackbelt. He has developed this black patch on his side over night, I do weekly water changes except for last week I missed one nitrates got up to over 40ppm. ?
  2. Hey ppl, I am setting up a few 6' x 18" x 18" breeding setups and am thinking of air driven side drop filters or Poret foam corner filters, am leaning towards the corner filter as I can utilise both corners of the tank for flow and can place marine pure balls behind the foam for a clean look. Air driven for cost and ease of maintenance, what do you think? Sam.

  4. Hey I just came down Moorak St, Taringa and there was a corner spa on the footpath for council collection. It would make a good pond if anyone is looking for one. I would hurry though. https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Moorak+St,+Taringa+QLD+4068/@-27.4905407,152.9791072,19z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x6b9150fa0f416fbf:0xd762fed16eab0b51?hl=en

  6. So a few weeks ago i got four 4x2x18 tanks build by mick on the gold coast, with side drop filters built in. Very happy with how they turned out and they are working a treat. Im running all 4 tanks off a blagdon KA65 and the flow is great.
  7. Hi Guys, Im about to get some new 4x2x18s made up and want to do a side drop or corner drop filters. Would any one recommend either one over the other. If i go corner drops it will be both back corners with them. And suggestions on filter media and layout?
  8. Can anyone point me to a detailed side drop filter design? From what I've seen, these look like a very efficient air powered filter and I'm contemplating them for some 5ft tanks. Who runs side drops and loves them?
  9. On the north side were used to going to visit aquarium stores and being somewhat disappointed with what we saw but yesterday while we're staying on the south side we went around and visited two of the sites sponsors. Age of Aquariums and Pet City. It was incredible, completely and utterly impressed. Great stock, large range and very friendly staff! Would actually consider looking at moving to the south side instead of the north side just for the great stores around.
  10. Ok so my DG has been acting weird, she was only in a corner and swiming up and down and then she will lay on the bottom of the tank, she is very weak. any thoughts of what it is and how i can help he. (she still eats, not much, but she does). She is my only female and i want to try to breed, its really is hard to find a female. (is the any dwarf gourami breeders out there that are willing to sell to me.)
  11. I need 2 new sheets of glass to replace some front panels on some tanks im rebuilding. I need 2 off 900mmx450mm. Have called a few glaziers, prices vary but last mob I called wanted $35 per sheet of 6mm 900x450. Of course Im just some guy off the street with a tiny order, but still, I think $35 per sheet is a bit steep. Can anyone recomend somewhere North side, prefferably around Brendale/Strathpine area? Thanks.
  12. Sometime this year I will be getting my oscars a bigger tank. Once I do I want to convert my 75 or 100 over to marine. Think I'll start with maybe just some clowns, but what size tank would be better? Is marine the same as fresh, bigger tank more mistakes it can handle? Any tips or links appreciated, im total new at marine :-)

  18. I finally got africans. Sorry dad. These are my first africans, but there the good ones, tangs lol. I got these from melbourne and i drove there !! it took 5 and a half hours to drive there. And about 5 to get back. I left at 5am and got home at 5.30 pm. All the fish survived the trip thank fully. So in the tank is 17 xenotilapia ochrogenys 'mzuri'. Soon to be less. The tank he had them in was filthy. So a few deformed fry from poor water quality. So my mission tomorrow is to catch the deformed ones out. Also have 4 paracyprichromis nigripinnis. One has a sunken stomach and is currently floating around the tank, so after this post ill catch him out and put him to sleep. Now for the pics.

  20. My red devil is floating at the top of the tank on his side. I think he has SBD and I wanted to see if anyone else has had and cured a similar problem in the past? I have read that peas / cod liver oil is a good combo to get his guy functioning properly but it seems a little unsupported so far. So, if you have had this problem and cured it, please let me know what you did. FYI - all tank parameters look good but the tank is running a little cool at the moment - maybe around 22degrees. I plan on adding another heater today and get it up around 26degrees. Mick

  23. Two days ago all was fine - now my Crimson tide has an opaque left eye and looks kind of fluffy on that side. He is one of the dominent fish in the tank and, up until yesterday, kept every other fish away from his side of the tank. Today he has the opaque eye and is staying down the bottom of the tank and looks like he has been nipped at. All other fish are OK, all levels are good, 25% rain water change every week, PH 8.5, hardness OK. HELP I love the little fistey fella. He is currently in a floating hospital container in his tank. What do I do to keep him going?????????????
  24. I'm down in Brisbane for a couple of days and wouldn't mind checking out some shops on the way home to the Sunny Coast to see if I can find some fish that take my fancy - more specifically looking for African males for a display tank. Probably Haps and Peacocks. Just wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some good stores down this way that I should check out?
