    Replacement 5ft Light

    Thanks Guy's. I have contacted Dalua and am hoping to have it repaired. If that doesn't happen, I won't be spending $500 on a light again and will go with EBay or Beamworks. Regards Peter

    NSWCS MAJOR AUCTION 2nd November 2019

    Hasn't been a club auction in a few months. I'm hoping that this will result in some better quality / less prolific species coming through. Anyone planning on bringing anything new through?

    Replacement 5ft Light

    Hi guys I bought some cheap 4 foot led lights off eBay about 18 months ago now and no regrets. I have 'Beamworks' and 'Aquarien Eco' brand. Both branded units seem to be identical, only difference was the power adaptor/cabling. I went with only the white/blue led units. Family members have also bought the same off eBay and are happy with it too. My cousin has been running the full colour spectrum ones on his setup for a few months and they look great. See his lights in action:

    Replacement 5ft Light

    I'll follow this topic with interest because I'll shortly be in the market for a 5ft light too. I was looking on eBay earlier today and came across Beamworks, one store selling them currently has 20% on eBay.

    Fish ID Help Please

    Hi, I have just inherited some fish and the owner doesn't know what they are and I am not sure either. They would be about 6 inch fish and they would be about 6 years old. To me they look like something from Lake Victoria.... any help would be appreciated identifying them. Lisa.
  13. Hi All, I'm not new to the hobby (20 Years) but i'm new to african cichlids. Ive been researching and debating cichlids or discus and have taken the plunge. I cycled up a 6 foot, 275 lt tank with sand substrate, some texas holey rock (not a lot) and FX6 filter with coral rubble and bio home over the past two months and went out and grabbed some cichlids today; 1 X Aulonacara baenchi 1 X Aulonacara blue neon 1 X Aulonacara Eureka red 1 X Aulonacara maulana 1 X Aulonacara maleri 2 X Cuckoo Synos I guess my question would be that as the bio in the filter rises to meet the load, i'll be adding in more. Im looking for recommendations on good peacocks and some smaller haps maybe to complement the tank. Looking to add 4 - 5 at a time. Thanks in advance for your wisdom. Cheers

    Swimming Upside Down

    Thanks all....I haven’t seen him eating but will try again today. Will keep posted

    Swimming Upside Down

    Yeah I agree, I dont think I've had a fish come back from that before, unfortunately. Is it still eating? If so, I'd probably keep him going (My thinking is that he cant be in too much distress if he is still eating - though I'm no expert)

    nice

    Swimming Upside Down

    Tough one to deal with I would think swim bladder as well, probably from a fight or something. To be honest i have never had a fish come back from it But in saying that i would give him as long as you can, separate in hospital tank and add salt, feed shelled peas if he eats just in case it is caused by constipation You might be lucky, keep us posted Cheers

    L200a

    Hi guys, Been a while since I have posted. I got an opportune photograph this afternoon of one of my L200a Green Phantom Plecos (and one not so great) so thought I'd post them both. At the moment, I have both L134 and the L200a. The L200a seem alot more comfortable in moving about during the day. Cheers Joel

    Swimming Upside Down

    I have an awesome male “white lips” which is one of my favourite fish. He was doing great, and then I woke up about 4 days ago and found him swimming upside down. All other fish in the tank are doing great, and the water parameters are all fine (ph 7.8, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 40). I did a big water change and have also treated the tank with metro. He is still moving and very active, but just swimming upside down......I am not sure what else to do. I thought I would leave him for a few days and see whether he gets better. I assume it is his swim bladder.....should I put him out of his misery or give him a few more days?

    NSWCS meeting 7/9/19

    Did anyone get along to the meeting? I'm curious how Mo's talks were.
  23. Hi guys, Im looking into keeping a tank of South Americans, Geophagus particularly. Can anyone help me locate them in the Sydney area? Whether it be breeders, local fish shops, etc. I haven’t decided on a specific type as yet, just curious as to what is out there and available. Thanks James.

  25. Hi guys I have a 56 Litre tank I have lost a bunch of bristle nose and other fish as I had some issues when using continuum fraction, for some reason it was causing my PH to drop to 6 or lower a day or 2 after water changes, but have now switched to prime and my ph is stable. Tank is now 4 months old with a PH of around 7.5 and KH is 3, Ammonia, Nitrates and Nitrites are all zero Substrate is small black gravel and i have some plants and small amount of driftwood. 4 tetras and a pair of bettas and some cherry shrimp in the tank all alive and healthy. They get fed once a day and eat all that is fed within 2 minutes except the Aqua One Vege Wafer Food i put for the bn before bed that I remove the next day if any is left My problem is my bristle nose keep dying. I put another 4 albinos bn in around 5 days ago 5-6cm in size and 3 have died. I have noticed the belly internals looking through the skin look black after they are dead and There is a small amount of brown algae in the tank but other than that I have no idea on whats causing them to die off. Any advice is most appreciated as i mainly set this tank up for keeping some BN Thanks in advance
