  1. Hi all, Hope this finds you all well. Firstly, not sure if this is the right section to post this in as I am new to the forum. Sorry in advance if it is moderators... I have a ~3 year old, really healthy Red Tiger Oscar that's ~230mm long. He is really healthy, happy, has heaps of character, great colour patterns, no worms or diseases etc. He currently lives by himself in a 4ft 189 litre tank with a 20mm rocky pebble base that he likes to rearrange a fair bit. I'm wanting to sell him to a loving home if possible. I will not be letting him go into the wild either way! Even though some idiots have already done this in Townsvilles Ross river from what I have heard... So what are they roughly worth at this age, health and length/size? Thanks for the help, info and advice in advance! Kind regards Steve

  5. We have received in the new Rossmount Pumps, they are Italian made with a 3 Year Warranty. Prices start at just $125 http://www.thetechden.com.au/Rossmount_s/2234.htm They have two series - The M series and the MX Series and the M series will attach to glass magnetically to hold them in place up to 15mm glass and the MX will go up to a 19mm glass. There is also a option for a controller that is due later in the month if you want to control them. Size wise they they are physically smaller than the Tunze pumps and they have two unique features where they have two different output methods where they can be set to either 60 degree flow for stronger flow over a smaller area and 120 degree flow for a softer wider area. The other thing that is really good is the reduced maintenance with ACS The Auto Cleaning System it's a set of windows and openings positioned in particular points of the pump. By a specific path, the water recirculates correctly in a forced way and eliminates the residual air inside, thus lubricating and cleaning continuously every part of the pump that normally would consume rapidly due to debris, calcium deposits or salt. The Rossmount pumps also have a VAS system which reduces vibration. We have tried the M3400 and been very happy with the running and results with the tests we performed.
  6. With slight fear I put out the challenge, show me the thread of the year on QLDAF. Must have been made in the last 12 months by some other member. Please bump the thread with a tag "thread of the year" and quote thread here........

  8. Big Happy New Year fellow fish,shrimp,plant,coral or animal lovers! Make it a great one for yourselves....Just curious as to what everyone is up to fish wise in the new year?.. big plans?.. fish your hunting down?... me personally I'm rebuilding slow and steady with the fish collection and would love to really have a go at breeding some marine guys along with a few big predators and as always the fancy goldfish ....2015 should be good :beer:
  9. The way my bottom tank looked and was performing till late January 2013 was great, it was a bit more work then I would prefer keeping it like that, till that Aus day catastrophic power outage from Cyclone Oswald killed most all of it. So from my stupidity in trusting our power supply and not getting a generator, it was back to square one! From coming up here in 1977 I can not remember the power off for more then 4 hours, till then! A cheap one from aldi fixed all that. These are pics of how I screwed up by trusting that I will always have power reduced to a nothing tank, to not such a hard work tank any more. As always-another screw up of the thousands I have made is hopefully learnt from. I am also changing everything and all out of my top tank as it am getting bored with it, for me having mostly sps in that one is so boring! This first pic was 2 weeks before Oswald. A few weeks after Oswald. Morphs go in. Morphs and much more doing well Sun corals the next day from introduction just before lights out doing well. Sponge and some more algae in. Now.

  12. Hi Getting back into the game after a long break....2 munchkins now older and its time for this mum to focus on her interests as well. So currently have a 4ft tank sitting empty as I ponder setup and research low tech planted tanks. Researching substrate is enough to cause a brain overload let alone a CC meltdown at some of the options. one calculator suggested 9 bags of flourite sand...ouch $$ just for substrate. Not in a rush to have fish, I know it will take several weeks till I start stocking. Looking forward to joining in. Cheers Nicole
  13. hiya..smiths mentioned that it might be on again soon..i went last year had a blast..any info wood be great ty
  14. Hey guys, I am finally back into cichlids from a 4 year stint since I have moved to Townsville from the sunnycoast, my old handle was brad2828 I believe. nearly have my new custom 5x2x2 setup complete. cost me a small fortune but its far from a pet shop style timber pine set up. what do you reckon. I have from what the builder tells me a pretty decent bio filtration sump with a 4200l/p hour pump. I got a lot of little extras put on like stainless hinges, soft touch opening doors, polished glass edges, quick release tap water change function . And hopefully if all goes to plan my 5 wild caught Moba frontosa to arrive this Thursday
  15. With the end of the year drawing near would like to take an opportunity to thank everyone. It has been a massive year for us and it would not be possible without the support that we have received. You have helped take us from our humble beginnings back in March 2012 with our online website and our first order from Kasman and had a range of about 30 aquarium products to where we are now with over 800 items and growing fast and the introduction of our shop that opened in September and proud to say it is going great guns and giving us an opportunity to meet members face to face and have a chat and a bit of show and tell too. We hope to carry this forward into the new year and have some great things planned - including stocking Eheim and due to receive our order on Thursday. Can happily say "living the dream" with the hobby that I enjoy and being able to share, being my best job ever. There are just too many people to name that have helped us on our way and just can not say enough the gratitude, appreciation and thanks that we sincerely have. QLDAF have played a major roll in this all too so a big thanks to Russ and the Ubber Mods and of course all the great members that make up this fantastic addictive forum. Have a awesome New Year everyone and hope it brings everything that you want it to and more.

  21. The other day I bought a baby Clown Loach and stuck him in the QT, but this morning he completely vanished. I frantically began searching around the tank in the hope that he had only just jumped out and was still alive, but half an hour later I still couldn't find him, so I looked in his tank again a little more closely; to my amazement I saw a tiny orange tail barely visible through a hole going straight through a piece of driftwood, wedged in tight by his ocular spines. Anyway, after savaging the piece of wood and carefully scraping around him, I managed to softly pull on his tail which made him start wriggling enough to get free These were taken after I had broken the end off and cut away the wood all around him. I have no idea what compelled him to go foraging inside a tunnel as small as he is, but thankfully he's safe and happy now as if nothing ever happened
  22. Hey Gang, its that time of year again, the snakes are about, I was helping the Moggil Creek Catchment group out at Brookfield this morning and came across a good sized Brown Snake sunning himself across a track that I was using. When you are collecting, be really careful as they are very active with the heat. Stomp around is not a bad approach or tap the ground in front of you with a stick. If you find one, don't attempt ot kill it as most people who get bit were trying to kill the snake. Remember leave them well alone and they will leave you well alone. Saw this in the paper, hope the old guy pulls through. http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/man-80-bitten-several-times-by-brown-snake-at-boonah-south-of-ipswich/story-e6freoof-1226528364412
