    Breeding Bristle-nose Catfish

    Assuming you have at least 1 male and at least 1 female given the right conditions they should breed.

    Breeding Bristle-nose Catfish

    G'day, I have 5 Bristle Nose Catfish from the same parents. When they are older will they breed? Cheers Perry
  4. No worries, thanks for letting me know.
  5. Generally most users on the forum use an external hosting service e.g. Flickr and Photobucket and link to the images. If the image is deleted or the account with the hosting service is closed you won't be able to see the images anymore. In this case it looks like the OP edited the post back in 2017 so he possibly removed the link to the photos.
  6. Is there a reason why i can't see any of the images people are commenting on. I'd love to see peoples set ups in regards to breeding Green Horse Face. CHeers Matt

    Sick Fish help

    Hi All, sorry about the long read... I have a 4ft tank with bolivian rams, Tetras, a few platys and a trio of L333 cats. About 6 weeks back the rams started occasional flashing so i treated the tank with rapid whitespot remedy and raising the temp and followed up with a repeat treatment. All seemed going well until 3 weeks ago i started to notice white stringy poo from a few fish and also becoming quite lethargic. On advice from the LFS i treated the tank with praziquantel for 2 weeks but no change. Next trip to LFS I picked up some dimetridazole which i have mixed into a batch of food and started feeding but my issue is the L333 cats dont feed at the same time and leaving food in tank overnight I assume ineffective as the meds would dissolve from the pellets so they would still carry the issue to spread again. Also one of the fish now wont eat. Any advice? Tank ph 7, nitrate is about 10ppm.
  8. Hi All, Looking for Shrimp breeders Penrith area , not as popular as they were a couple of years ago and getting harder to find Any help would be appreciated Cheers

    Hi yes they are outside all year round and survive perfectly fine I do find they breed a lot in the warmer months though

    Welcome to the Dark Side Adam I will have some Almond leaves available at the meeting if you want some
  15. Unfortunately Rusty has had a bad injury at home while cleaning leaves from his roof and gutters and managed to break his hip badly enough to require a rod and screws This serves as a timely reminder to every one about the dangers of ladders and cleaning gutters The NSWCS will be now running a mini auction on the night and look to have a short talk by a guest speaker yet to be confirmed The usual Members Xmas Hamper give away plus Pizza and Drink will still be on, as will the monthly raffle of fish and dry goods Looking forward to seeing you there
  16. See pictures. This is in an established but newly planted 5g aquarium. Stocked with guppies and cherry shrimp and various plants. The plants and driftwood are new additions. No other algae present in the tank after having planted 3 weeks ago. Normal weekly maintenance, daily ferts, 6hrs lighting per day, NO CO2. The algae growth started within the first week and has grown reasonably slowly but I’d like to remove or defeat it. I’m pretty sure it’s not BBA. It’s only growing on the driftwood. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Sicj. Very interesting. On a side note do you leave your shrimp outside all year round? From what I briefly read about cherry shrimp a while back I thought they were very delicate with temperature? Is that not really the case? I couldn’t help myself on the weekend and I picked up some apistogramma pairs for the tanks. I’m enjoying observing them, might need to make room for another tank or 2 for some more. 😎

    I have cherry shrimp outside and the gun leaves fall in and they are all doing really well still. Not sure if this helps but shrimp are usually sensitive to things and they are thriving and breeding.

    Thanks all for your responses. I will have to keep a lookout at parks, etc nearby for them. Skippy, I thought the same thing as you re eucalyptus oil in gum leaves which is why I posed the question. I actually put some in a tank for 2 days before posting and put the canaries (guppies) in to see if it would effect them but it didn't. I put them in for water parameters, but also because I like the effect it has on the breaking up the lighting in the tank when they are scattered floating on top. They sunk after 24 or so hours though.

    I'm no expert but I would expect eucalyptus leaves to leach a lot of oil I'm not sure what effect that would have on the water's chemistry

    I was just about to make a post asking this question. Was also looking at almond leaves but due to how much they cost might look at getting an almond tree. Banana leaves is a good idea but might be too big. In regards to other leaves such as eucalyptus will they be ok if they are old / dried?

    you could use Beech or Oak also but wrong time of year to go looking for them they are an autumn project you can grow Almond trees in Sydney

    Swamp Bloodwood leaves or Dried banana leaves
  24. Hi all I have reset a few of my tang tanks as I want to venture into dwarf americans. 😎 I am setting up 3 american tanks and plan on getting rams and apistos. I want to add some leaf litter for water parameters and also decoration, however, I am looking for something more economical than buying almond leaves. Does anyone know if using gumtree leaves and bark will have a negative impact on water quality? Cheers!
