  1. Been having people looking at my fronts and pointing out white spots above the middle bars saying y bars or could split or something? What does this mean?
  2. Hey guys... Just wanted to throw this up so you guy can give me some feed back. Let me know what you think.
  3. Over the past few weeks, I've noticed a film has appeared on top of the tank. I've removed it once, but it's returned. The only thing I can imagine is it's oil from the Eheim 2213. There's not oil slick rainbow, and when disturbed by fingers or food it separates into fragments. Any ideas what it might be?
  4. And tips how to raise fry correctly:
  5. So I bought some Peppered Cory's yesterday and put them in my 60L tank and they keep swimming to the top of the tank, would this be due to lack of oxygen in the water? Live plants and silk plants. Other fish in the tank are 1 fighter and 9 Tetras and what seems to be only 1 cherry shrimp.
  6. If you are looking for a particular species of fish.....and aren't able to locate them in your LFS or privately Current Stock - Aquarium Industries & Home Page - Premier Pet Pty Ltd Are 2 of the biggest fish wholesalers in Australia....I've provided links to their websites They both update their stock lists regularly...... Simply watch their sites and if a fish appears you are chasing ask your LFS if they will get them in for you many are Happy to do so.... many will order in more than you need so you get to select the best I much prefer this as i have on occasion also refused to purchase the fish if they aren't an acceptable quality without any complaint....it works for me....and sometimes you educate the LFS to get in species they wouldn't normally stock
  7. Nice price on the Fluval Plant Nano Light - $99 and the Fluval Sea Nano $125 Get in quick at this price.... For more information and availability Fluval Nano Plant and Fluval Nano Sea <----Click Here
  8. …with excellent service! I have bought from John before, only twice I think & only when work had me driving past. Now I work on Stradbroke Island, I can't get anywhere anymore. Long story short I needed fish food fast. I emailed John last night to ask if he was still offering same day postage, after he responded to my emails super quickly (after Hrs) he explained they do not as the courier service was not 100% spot on with same day, I still placed the order at say 9pm. He then emailed me this morning to let me know all was done on his behalf & it had been sent with the courier, then again this arvo stating it had been left at my door at 4:30 (or whenever) and there it was waiting for me when I got home I am a horrible customer, you don't give me service I don't care if you the only supplier on the face of the planet, I won't buy from you again. Well I did not expect service to this level from ANY retailer! let alone an online one! Nor will I expect it again, to such a high level, as he really did go beyond what was required from himself. I did stress that if it came in the normal 2 days its not going to be an issue, but mate you excelled! And my fishes are thanking you! Your a legend, and I will be defiantly buying again, in the near future! Peace out! PS: @ The Tech Den any chance you would be looking at carrying the 'Tropical' Brand of cichlid food that everybody is banging on about? there is a local online store, but my god it is expensive!
  9. Does anyone have any experience with aquarium top filters please? Looking for filters for a std 4ft planted native tank and Im considering using 2 x 700lph HY303D models. The reasons why Im considering these filters are: The aquarium will be open topped so they will be no issues to fit These filters appear to have a trickle flow rather than the destructive currents of internal powerhead filters Only the pickup tube and powerhead are in the tank and are black (same as my background) I can load one with ceramic rings and the other with zeolite Will only cost $35 each plus media Am I missing something? The tank will not be heavily stocked. I also plan to run duckweed/frogbit on the surface.
  10. http://m.youtube.com/?#/watch?v=KkKBYWXRAUw In the above video i have a sump running on my 4x18x18 ebjd and split pair tank. I built it for some5hing else but decided to run it on this tank instead as it was already drilled. I have my min and max marks on the sump and as you can see in the video its below my min. I topped this up 4days ago to the max line and through evaporation has gone done quite abit. I am asking for ideas on an automatic water top up system for this. Only because its a pain to fill b3cause of the positioning of it i have to hold a bucket above my head and syphon down into it. I know i could cover the sump to minimise evaporation but if anyone has any experience with diy top ups please share. I will be needing this info anyway in the near future for other sumped racks that im in the process of setting up as i want to automate water changes. (Drip system) NB. I am still running the eheim cannister on this tank aswell until im happy the new sump media has seeded properly. Cheers John.

  12. .Until now I've been using rainwater to top off my pico marine I did notice that the pH would drop over time and just assumed that high nitrates were the main contributing factor, I have started using deionised water which has a pH of 6.0 which bothers me more than the rainwater I was using before registered at about 6.8 i did try using coral bone to alter the rainwaters pH prior to top off but stopped because I knew I was only adding to my 6gallon/pico's General Hardness since I'm adding more deionised water over the hotter Queensland climate, the only thought that comes to mind is acid rain.. should I be using pH balanced RO water or is altering the pH with calcium carbonate sufficient..? keeping in mind that I rarely do marine water changes maybe once every 6 months or so lol
  13. . Bottom tank is finished and the top one is as well. Its taken near a few months for this, but finally the flower garden affect is complete and the competition for space is in full swing.
  14. All the talk about bloodlines and breeding,etc has got me keen to share a goldfish variety that has a deep history of bloodlines and is known in the goldfish world as the "king" of goldfish.....the TVR or topview ranchu.....It is a product of japanese breeding efforts and came from the lionhead goldfish (China back in the 1800s)...it is pretty much the "true" ranchu and it has deep established bloodlines that are not easily "bought" as they have cultural significance which is viewed as more important than the commercial value(something nice to see in the aquarium hobby if you ask me)...this might also be the reason why people in general are unaware of these guys..they havent been pushed around the world with profits in mind..it is hard to get the bloodlines and not cheap either...and yet some true breeders give the fry or baby black ranchu(called this due to their dark colour before they begin to "colour" up) away for free to young students of the "game". ...so heres some examples of the topview ranchu....
  15. Hey everyone I'm looking to remove the black top part of our blue planet 100l Kingdom like this one. Has anyone done something like this before? My only 2 concerns is, will the tank remain strong? Will the top of the glass be unattractive or should I expect a clean edge? If you have done something like this could I hear your story and why you needed to do? My process will be to use a Stanley knife/snap blade to cut the silicone. Cheers
  16. Hey everyone, we have a Blue Planet 100L Kingdom tank that we started out aquarium hobby with and now that we know alot more and prefer things a different way we have decided to remove the top to have a rimless tank. Has anyone removed the siliconed top off a tank before? Besides a blade, what are my options? Here is a picture of what our tank is but this isn't ours Cheers.
  17. Hi, I know there are a million sump designs on the net but due to the space I have I hope to do something different. I want to set up a 10ft marine but I have no room under the tank. Just wondering if anyone has a design for a kick ass sump that sits above the tank. I have found a couple of videos of people doing smaller style DIY plastic things but nothing really pro. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  19. Hey guys and gals, I recently made the change from coral sand to some fine black sand. I washed the sand for approx 40 mins and when I put it in the tank it still managed to cloud up the tank it has cleared up now and I did a 20% water change on sunday to help the problem. But I still have a layer of what appears to be sediment/dust from the sand sitting on the top of the water. What would be the best way to get rid of it without the use of chemicals? I'm running a Aqua One 1400 and an internal filter that does 700L/h. Cheers, Adam
  20. things were getting very crowded so i got a pair of scissors to my top tanks halimeda and all other coralline algae forms along with a few the things tost out, it’s looking a little bald, like me now,lol. Morphs multiplying,tubastraea multiplying and algae going nuts, the few acans and stony corals in here don’t have much room any more, so I think I am going to loose some of those as they get squeezed to death. The long tendril cream morphs are already finding it hard to have space, its not looking good for them, the purple/blues are much stronger and forcing them out by covering them.
