Hey guys I haven't been on here much in the last year or two, minimised alot and don't have much spare time for fish unfortunately. Over the weekend I was up in caloundra visiting family so the plan was to venture to some rock pools and try turn my empty LumiQ into something marine but really really basic, I plan on doing weekly water changes and that's probably it. Collected some sand / shell grit kind of substrate and water out of a healthy pool along with a couple snails/ hermit crabs, a Sergeant major, and some bad ass looking waratah anemomes. Pretty happy with it so far except for the fact the anemomes will not get off the hermit crab, and ride shotgun everywhere he goes. This photo should show the depth in the scape ive gone for a little better.
What next? Come One, Come All, to the GPG Breeding Venture! Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Aquariaists of all ages! You are about to witness a daring and risky journey – a “pioneering venture into little-known waters" ! Err… got a bit carried away there… sorry First, an explanation. As I mentioned in closing out my first (and only) thread, “Giant Pink Gourami “Baby” updates”, I was really surprised by and appreciative of the interest shown by so many people in what my pack of hoodlum GPGs were up to over the past few years. Having 1,400+ views of a thread after I closed it suggests that I should do what I’m doing here – start another thread You also know that I’m not just ‘collecting’ trophy fish – I fully intend to do what I can with what I have to breed GPGs. There you are – a Mission Statement!! Secondly, Nothing breeding-wise was ever going to happen in a kiddy-wink wading pool. I realise I could be mistaken about this, but I have a feeling that enormous fish probably want a very large amount of room to play in. Hence the “Pool Phase II”, and the intention of using a 10ft swimming pool as the “TOP Pool” for breeding experiments! Thirdly, You can’t do much with just 1 fish (apologies to @JayPee and ‘Walter’ – although did I see 2 other GPGs in one of JayPee’s photos a while back?), so I have been buying Giant Pink Gouramis with not too much concern for $ price. And yes, @th3f0rg0t3n, I may have accumulated a few too many in the past, but I have now stopped. My daughter has threatened to extract $50 out of me for each fish if I buy any more. She doesn't read threads on QLDAF, so little does she know that I now have 20+ Lastly, There will be a plan for all this; just as soon as I sit down and draw one. As @beencees tells me – my plans remind him of Wiley E. Coyote’s brilliant designs to catch The Road Runner. I have had trouble sourcing appropriate “ACME” equipment and tend to rely on eBay instead! This is where we came from... http://www.qldaf.com/forums/monster-rare-exotic-fish-49/giant-pink-gourami-baby-updates-77649/ This is where we are going now... Enjoy the trip
