  1. Ok ive got red cherries that my bgks absolutely love as a snack ,but ive been thinkin of putting my empty 2 ft tanks to some use . Was thinking of a shot at crs or cbs or something else shrimpy, but unsure of ideal ph ,gh etc Also whats the best way to maintain the ph ? Whats best substrate ? All that sort of stuff Temp isnt a problem my tanks downstairs never get above 24 even in mid summer Are sponges best filters?, i would think they would carry organisms the shrimp feed on cos my cherries seem to be all over their sponge filter Any info is greatly appreciated cos the internet just pours out too many variables and i reckon most sites plugging stuff they say is best are owned by the suppliers or manufacturers [MENTION=885]smicko[/MENTION] , [MENTION=2388]Daydream[/MENTION] @ Brissy damn i put post here by accident ,was looking at who bred shrimp !@Webmaster [MENTION=231]gingerbeer[/MENTION] can one of you guys put it in the shrimp section and remove from here thx

  14. Took my kids for a visit yesterday and while it was really exciting to see the freshwater section and get a reminder of how big some of these fish can get. I have to say though I was a little concerned as to the state of some of the fish. I'm not going to be critical on them without all the facts but it really looked like poor water quality and overcrowding was becoming a bit of an issue especially in the barra and pacu tanks. When I was there the water was fairly cloudy and I could see a lot of their eyes were clouded over as well as seeing other physical signs of not being in the best of health. The pacu tank in particular looked like someone said we need more colour so lets cram in as many red devils as we can. Now to be fair I am guessing that lots of these fish could be rescued fish and as a result they did not get to them in good condition in the first place and that perhaps there was a feeding time just prior which would explain a bit of the cloudiness, and that some of these big guys must be fairly old and might be showing signs of age, but I was wondering if anyone else noticed the same thing with these 2 tanks. Kicking myself for not taking some pics to post but I am sure if anyone has been recently you would notice the same thing. Don't get me wrong most of the other displays were in great condition but these 2 tanks really surprised me. I guess in some ways I am comparing it to the freshwater exhibit in Bali Safari and Marine Park which I thought had an awesome display. Again not being critical without all the facts as I am sure they do a fantastic job at most things. *Sorry just realised I posted this in the wrong section - mods feel free to move it*

  16. Wow! What fish do you think he stocked it with?
  17. hey guys went to underwater world today because i was already holidaying at mooloolabah and i was very dissapointed with the african and american display tanks... thought they could have done alot better... the american tank had 3 pbass around 10cm with two motoro rays , tang tank was just fronotosa and the malawi tank had dolphins, electric yellows and venustus... i have friends with nicer tanks... even the tanks that had the lungfish were very shallow and over stocked in my opinion... it was 35 dollars to get in so it wasnt too bad but if your looking forward to seeing some cool cichlids your in for dissapointment, any body else been there lately ?
  18. Just some happy snaps of my newest members to my community. Its amazing what goes on when your not looking. Hopefully they grow up as big and strong as dad
  19. We spent last week up at Coloundra and visited Underwater World while we were up that way. Overall, I have to say I am somewhat disappointed with the place compared to previous visits especially when it comes to the freshwater exhibits. They have gone downhill in a big way. Apart from the red devils, there were no big American cichlids on display at all and many of the larger fish like the barra, pacu and paroon sharks etc are looking in very poor condition. I would have captured more but many of the specimens weren't even worth shooting due to their poor condition. Sad really. Anyway, I did manage a few keepers from there so I thought I'd share. The Jack has grown a fair bit since last time I saw it. My partner was a little surprised by it's size. Now she has a real understanding of what size jacks are capable of attaining. I threw in a few of the seals. They are always good value although again, I was disappointed overall here too. The show they put on fell very short of what I have seen in the past. Maybe they do different shows on the weekend to what they do during the week?
  20. Looking at the hardiest fish you know or have kept,etc...my entry is Telmatochromis Dhonti...damn...how do you kill these guys.... I sold off the last(or so I thought:confused:)of my guys awhile back..and anyways true to form as they have done in the past...some miracle fry left in the sand...I gave most away with the adult fish but there might have been about 6 or 7 little eyelash sized guys left...anyways giving them a crack at life..I chucked them in a laundry tub(about 8 or so litres I'd say) with no filter,no airstone but hey at least they got some sand and a few rocks as i know they love to bash each other(to death:rolleyes:)...and so left them there...for 4 MONTHS:eek:...and fed whenever I remembered they were even there so not daily(maybe even missed a week here or there:eek:)....no water changes....no this isnt a lesson in fish cruelty:confused: it was some guys who I didnt care made it or not but hey I gave them a crack and yep now they are about 5cm in length and looking like happy little dhonti...the 6 little guys now got the 5 star upgrade with a water change and are now part of the regular fish getting fed cycle and its also given me the love for the Dhonti again...so a little tank and filtration etc is on its way....damn little hard nuts...they are tough as nails both with their chemistry/demeanour and now as they have shown me with their survival instinct....tough cookies.... Reckon there would be a few stories out there...sump survivors etc.....I had a baby goldfish i bred that got stuck under some driftwood in an outdoor growout pond and lived there!!! for a month or 2...eating whatever must of floated past its head :confused: but yeah lets say muscle definition was a little missing on one side of the body so once I found little fella he had to go to the big pond in the sky..... Hardiest fish stories guys???????????
  21. Hi all, We have just begun our adventure into the salt water world and expect to bring our aquareef 400 home within 3 months which will allow additional research time so the reef aquarium gets all I can give it to see it successful and stable and thrive. Have read lots about possible upgrade needs, chillers, refugiums, different lights, power heads or other wave makers and lots of acronyms that of course mean between little and nothing to me lol! Im hoping that the combined knowledge of our members will assist me in knowing what of my aquareef 400 package will suffice, what needs to change fairly soon and what to change eventually. My setup will be in the lounge of a small unit right beside a bed - have read the system is noisy and can do things to quieten it down. BTW, I'm not particularly handy but can follow instruction. My order includes 1kg LR and a bag of live sand. What's the general concensus on RO system? then I read about the necessity of a quarantine tank! OMG, what's going to be suitable for that? Soooo many questions, so many opinions, can't believe I layed awake thinking about it for hours last night! Sure ill sleep better tonight - I'm buggered lol!
