  3. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    Ok so my mind has changed again, and i think that i am going to go for a male display tank. Mainly mbuna but i am going add a black calvus and gold comps. Against all the research that i have done if i go 2 males from the same species and having about 14 fish in total would there be enough distractions and hiding places to stop a massive blood bath. Potential list Lab nakali Patriki chiclid Tetrastigma Yellow belly albert Parlmut Black calvus Gold compress. Any thoughts??? Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

  11. Reactive ion OH, how is it formed?

    Thanks for the replies. Might be time for a to try a adding a refugium.

    I would say it is a Juvenile Uaru.

  15. Reactive ion OH, how is it formed?

    Good article humbug. It's basically forming hydroxide particles to react with ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. Considering the biological filters can already handle the first two, the nitrate reduction appears to be the only benefit of such a system.  There's no reason, why this isn't successful. You don't see half the freshwater systems having refugiums now do you? It's a fact they work, yet why aren't the applied in all systems?? - Likely because the fish/corals in marine systems will die, whereas in freshwater, the organisms will suffer long term affects that just aren't noticeable to warrant the use of such methods.  
  16. Reactive ion OH, how is it formed?

    H3O also known as hydronium typically exists in acidic environments, meaning there is additional hydrogen ions present in the water. In neutral water (H2O), your acid (H+) and base (OH-) are in equal concentrations, giving a pH of 7. When you add extra hydrogen ions into the equation, they can bond to the oxygen atom to form H3O (3 hydrogens, 1 oxygen). As you can see from the regular water molecule, you have both H and OH, which make up a standard water molecule of H2O. All your article is saying is that in the clouds, your hydronium ion (H3O) is kicking off a hydroxide particle (OH-) in the prescence of an election. How this has any relation to filtration, makes little connection to me . Hydroxide has many different occurrences and can exist for many, many different reasons. 
  17. Reactive ion OH, how is it formed?

    I assume you’ve seen this one? https://hydrawayblog.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/hydro-pure-technology-an-introduction/ The “technology” has been around for many years.  I looked into it a while back.  Only tests I could find which I felt seemed to have any degree of science behind them were ones published on the manufacturer’s site, and appeared to my reading to demonstrate that the technology didn’t work in the medium to longer term.  I can’t seem to locate them now – perhaps been removed?  I thought it was interesting at the time.  It seemed more that they were trying to baffle pundits with science rather than provide proof of the effectiveness of the product.  I know that in reading reviews on forums I kept seeing a recurring theme.  If the technology was as good as they claim, then why hasn’t this type of filtration revolutionised the market?  Why are we not seeing sound, independent, scientific results that support the manufacturer’s claims? Surely the technology would have implications in fields such as aquaculture, and appear in the literature there? If you are able to dig up anything concrete to back up the claims I’d be very interested to read it!

  19. Reactive ion OH, how is it formed?

    Just read a somewhat confusing article about the use of OH in filtration of aquarium water.  Had never come across this before so. yep, googled it and found this.   The •OH radical is linked with the production of H2O in molecular clouds. Studies of •OH distribution in Taurus Molecular Cloud-1 (TMC-1)[23] suggest that in dense gas, •OH is mainly formed by dissociative recombination of H3O+. Dissociative recombination is the reaction in which a molecular ion recombines with an electron and dissociates into neutral fragments . I cannot for the life of me work out how this is produced in water.

    Hey sweendog87, there is a guy on the Gold Coast Qld selling Rotkeils at the moment, he is on Qldaf forum under name of lazybonezz, 3.5-4cm at $85ea , $75ea  for 5 or more, $65ea for 10 or more. You don't see these for sale very often and he will freight Aust wide airport-airport.
  21. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    Loaches are usually fine as long as they have structure they can hide under, and get enough food. Pays to remember that these displays are simulations of nature, and not an actual slice of a rift lake. Adding girls does add some complication to the aquarium. More fights and...  the possibility of needing another aquarium for fry :D
  22. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    I know i cant wait for the tank to be ready. I must have changed my list 1000 times. But i am pretty sure i want male and female. Not really for breeding but more just about wanting a more natural feel in the environment if that makes sense. With the loaches would putting mature fish in the tank help with their resiliance? I was also thinking about some petricola catfish Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk
  23. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    Well loaches are one of those fish, like bristlenose that probably shouldnt work, but that I find work great. The big drawback to adding loaches is that you will then need more expensive meds in the horrible situation you have a disease. Loaches tend to be more delicate to medications. Once adjusted to the tank though, they are quite robust and will usually be out begging at food time with the rest.   To get that top level movement, you need to get the rocks up high. Height being the hardest thing to achieve with texas rock. Looking back at that fish list, I'd definitely slim it down lol, got a tad carried away there. Theres some cool fish out there if you are not looking for just a simple colour mix....  if you can find them of course!   1 Pseudotropheus Barlowi male 1 mbamba male 1 albino pindani 1 Pundamilia nyererei male 1 afra cobwe male 1 Otopharynx lithobate male 1 red dragon blood peacock 3 clown loaches 1 bristlenose   Making up stocking lists is like the best thing in the world.      
  24. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    I luv the ramble AoA (i hope you dont mind) And the kicking around the ideas, isnt that what pages like this are all.about. How would the loaches go with the cichlids? Aren't they a bit shy and i would see them?? Along with the colour movement at all levels is important to me i think? Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk
  25. It's a shame your not in 

    Melbourne :(

  26. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

      OK feel free to ignore, but a ramble for you   Afra will certainly be the dominant fish. Tricky to sex electric yellows and acei....  its a bit of a gamble. Must admit to being a msuli fan here they seem to be the most friendly of the acei in my experience. Most the black fish, especially the black and blues, tend to be rather aggro. Theres no real chilled out option although the purple/black mbamba come closest to fitting the bill. Not mpanga.....  lol mbamba! As far as a small blue fish, I'd be tempted to go blue pindani, just because they are like a colour reversed electric yellow and less aggro than the afra. Red and orange are trickier to get. Theres 2 options that are less obvious but well worth consideration IMHO the first is clown loaches and the second is lelupi.   So while your list is good......  if I was doing it I would go with, 4 electric yellows 4 mbamba 4 pindani 4 lelupi 3 clown loaches 1 bristlenose   Is that over stocked? hell yes But nothing good aeration and weekly water changes couldnt handle. Also theres gonna be plenty of aggro between the mbuna and who knows what sort of m/f ratio you'd end up with lol. Would they cross? maybe. Probably best not to sell any fry from these guys BUT you'd certainly end up with a few "hills have eyes" mongrels kicking around the rock work.   Never forget its your tank, we just kicking around the ball!
  27. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    My bad i ment to say that i would replace the msuli with the ngara. And then look for 4 red or orange ones. The afra would be the blues. Cheers Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk

    Hi Brad the problem seems to be none compatibility with the pair and that usually means putting a divider in the tank and then there is a rock and/or large pot so something with a wide footprint becomes necessary with flow from the males side to wash over any eggs laid BTW we are guessing at the size of the fish but assume they are around 20cm size
