  1. Hybrids

    Brad the P saulosi and L. caeruleus will definitely cross breed. It is highly likely that it will also cross L. sp. "Hongi".  You shouldn't keep Labidochromis species together as they will also cross.  Here is a video I found           
  2. What is this?

    Photoshopping to that extent is ridiculous and potentially put people off cichlids. If a beginner expected their fish to colour up to that extent I suspect they would be extremely disappointed. 
  3. aulonocara gertrudae masinje

    Colouring up nicely. 
  4. aulonocara gertrudae masinje

    Certainly a nice looking fish. There are been a few people that have brought these in but they have been in small numbers. 
  5. Stripping Saulosi?

    Always found that Saulosi had excellent surval and growth rates.  Increasing the size of the fry saver is a great way to maintain the growth rate. I have seen fry kept in savers that are too small and as a result the fry are undersized for the days. 
  6. Zeolite have increased filtering capacity due to their shape provides increased surface area compared to normal sand grains I woul exercise caution on using this product. The chemical composition varies from product to product and there is a lack of information for Hy-chlor on this particular product. You could contact them and request a copy of the MSDS but in the end the use of normal sand is the safer option. 
  7. You should be looking for dry silica sand. It will need a very good wash before use. Brands will vary as they generally are sourced locally    
  8. Fussorochromis Rostratus

     Fossos tend not to be super aggressive but as with lots of species there is diversity in agrees ion from one individual to the next.  There are a couple of things that you will need to consider such as filtration on you tank and current size of existing fish.  Is it any all male tank?
  9. Pop into Poolside Shepparton in Benalla Road to see if they stock pool sand. 
  10. updated model for imported fish PIAA

    I had also heard that they were not supporting the new requirements.  It may limit fish species to a small number of popular species. 
  11. My 6ft setup

    Beautiful setup and superb photograph. I hope you are enjoying ACE.
  12. Hols2

    They should be fine. Just request that the fish don't get fed for a day or two before the return trip. 
  13. Mandril bends

    Ingenious.  Have you got photos?
