     Yes that was some of the others ...my brain is still hurting  from Saturday   Manacapura Angels... (.Red Shoulders )  2 bags of 5 young fish and 2 bags of 2  medium fish Only 1 Green Petenia  splendida  which we don't see often in the auctions

     The ones I saw were  Hoplarchus psitticus   ( True Parrot ) Cichla monoculus  ( Peacock Bass ) There  probably were others that I did not see go thru There was a pretty good range of species  this auction

    Thank you for the reply Can you please send the auction lot number to a committee member so we can look into the Red Empress issue for you . In regard to the Albino  Mbuna , I agree with you completely  that there seems to be a lot of them coming thru nowadays, but until proven otherwise  there is not  a lot we can do. The Albino Afra cobue are certainly a new one and are coming from the same member. Please raise the matter at a meeting so we can discuss the Albino  issue you have raised Kevin

     Sorry but again what do you base this statement on ? and yes as you have stated it is basically impossible to prove what an "albino "actually is , and until we have some kind of proof we have to take peoples word as to what they actually are ! If you feel this strongly please bring it up at  a meeting so we can discuss it...I personally would have no issues banning all the albino form mbuna or any other species that is questionable if that is what the     members want! But  people need to remember that "albinos" do appear naturally and can be bred to  only produce  albino off spring eg. Albino Neolamprologus brichardi  as one species . I personally have a few  albino Julidochromis ornatus,  that came from one spawn   and with  a lot of time  and some work it may be possible to get them to throw pure albino fry ..Then someone can call them hybrids as well I guess. Regards Kevin  
  7. Black calvus

     2  girls from me also Top pic is 100%  girl At least adding  a male is easier but you will need  a bigger tank

     Hope it all works out for you

     Hi Fisho.. you may also want to have a look on the map ( if you have not already ) and  get an idea of how far it is from Manly to the Airport or to Campsie where Labyrinth is . The shipping part is easy.... the travel is going to be  your problem  I would guess. Kevin  
  10. MAJOR AUCTION

      450 odd lots I think  ...very few passed in ...a good range of species...and I was driving out the gate at 10pm
  11. Is it worth repairing a broken bridge ?

    Bridges are an easy fix ...just clean off all the old silastic  , refit the bridge with aquarium safe  glazing silastic and  tape from front to back with  duct tape in  a few spots  to pull it back into shape  and leave on for  a couple of days  till it sets .  
  12. The only thing I bought were raffle tickets  lol Fish sold well generally  
  13. Jalo reef

    Please resist the temptation to add any more fish until things stabilise for at least a few weeks and then only a couple at a time .
  14. Jalo reef

    So you are still sorting out and stabilising your tank and water chemistry and adding new fish at the same time ?
  15. Jalo reef

    Unfortunately it does seem that we have at least found out why the deaths have occurred. The fish have come out of higher Ph and Hardness and slowly died from being placed in the wrong water chemistry for them . We all make the same sort of mistakes in the beginning and have to learn the hard way . Get your self a test kit and test the water hardness ,if you do not add any sort of hardness generator and you live in Sydney area the tap water is very low hardness and totally not suitable for Malawi or Tangs. If you do get a buffer to increase the Ph and hardness ..remember to only do the increases very slowly over a long period or you will most likely kill all the other fish with the shock . Always remember if in doubt or you don't know ask on one of the forums and someone will help you out . Kev
