  1. .Hi All For everyone who is contemplating at tank repair or reseal, I found a place in Acacia Ridge called Glaziers Hardware Supplies. They are located in 12 Lombank St. Price $8.50 per tube and they also have a silicon remover from glass called GHS Supersolve ($11.00 per can), it works at treat if the directions on can are followed. I had hells own trouble in finding a supply for myself and stumbled across them by accident. Give them a go. I hope someone will benefit from this information. Enjoy. Greg

  9. Has anybody encountered one of these little fellas? I just noticed one in my tank and want to know what's the best way to get it out? I noticed it in the skimmer section of the sump. If I get a fairy wrasse will it eat it up really quick or will it get hit by the skimmer first? I have CBS in the display but it's 1.9m long and I am just thinking it will take them ages to find it. I can completely empty the skimmer section of water and top it back up but I am also thinking he will survive no water for a long time. Can somebody help me on this one please? Thanks
  10. hi folks just a query on how i can remove silicon marks on the inside of my tank. i bought the tank and it had been seperated into sections but the glass was removed. its a 5x2x2 and on the front and back panels is where the marks are. i have tried using a scraper to peel it off but it didnt work. a guy at the pet shop told me to use mineral turps and steel wool and he said it wouldnt scrath the glass and to give it a good rinse after using the turps on it. im just wondering if this is the way to do it or if there is a better way of remove it? any help will be appreciated cheers guys

  16. I need to silicon a fake rock into place (i hate the fact that the fish hide behind it) ... Problem: It has a heap of juv fish in it ... Where can i put them for a few days while the silicon cures? Will a big tubby thing from bunnings with an internal filter work? How long will it take the silicon to cure and be safe to fill with water? I will use the same filters (uncleaned) and the same substrate, and alot of the same water too ... Thanks in advance Hamza
