Guys! Guys!  (and Ladies!)

How to say this???

I counted 24 or 25 as the water is clearing - so perhaps I've been greedy?   Or I can't count very well, and double-counted some!

 

We need to take a vote over the weekend - results Monday!

  1. Who thinks I need more GPGs        :clap2:   
  2. and Who thinx I have enough ?   :fish:

(mind you, Mt Cotton is only a short drive away from Stafford...   umm...   )

 

one 1 :clap2: one 1 :clap2:one 1 :clap2:

Do i detect a note of confusion?

since when has enough ever been enough ?       feed the addiction

Having to ask us is like asking a drunk if he wants more wine

notice i said wine not whine, thats the noise the wife makes when she gets informed theres more fish coming home

Seriously don't you think you have enough to try and breed, or are you after Australia's largest collection?

Thanx @QldMick  !!

That's wot I thought too.

Really, there's not a big call for another Australian Icon - "The Big Gourami" to go with the "Big Prawn", the "Big Banana", and the "Big Trout".

I think I'll stop at 25 and just try to keep entertaining you lot with the trials and tribulations of a swimming-pool full of fish.

(swearing off buying another GPG for the moment)

Aaargles. ..

Of course the plumbing blows a major leak as you're trying to leave for work!!!

However...

The good news is that I now know that Loctite GO2 Gel (Tm of Henkel PL) and purchased from your friendly LFS (aka "Bunnings") joins Ag pipe with a piece of PVC pipe that has rock-hard blue glue already welded into it (a la the above picture).

So it's all systems back to filtering :-)

(He's also starting to see more GPGs in the Billabong - up to a dozen at one time! Photos to come .)

Back to the Goldfish Removal Dept ...

Sadly, it seems that the "Minnow/Bait/Shrimp/Net is just too small.

Some of the goldfish are now at least 20cm.

Maybe one of these will work...

(Able to breed goldfish no worries, GPGs are proving slightly trickier to multiply ! )
