    Canister Filter Reccomendation

    I always used Eheim or Fluval canister filters in the past and they pretty much lasted forever. I have tried some other brands but didn’t find them as long lasting. That is my experience.
  2. I also bought some raffle tickets. They were meant to be lucky ones lol. I bought a bag I johnjansonae and some julidochromis. I didn't arrive till late after work and missed some good fish apparently.
  3. How did everyone go at the auction last night?

    Ice cream container filter?

    The one I was thinking of sits inside the tank. Running the same as a sponge filter but with the rocks and media inside the ice cream container. i forget the process of how it all went together.

    Ice cream container filter?

    Hi all i remember a little whole back at the cichlid society meeting Chris showing some different types of filters There was an ice cream container filled with rocks or media and a tube coming out. Does anyone have any instruction on making these? wouldnt mind making a couple for some of my tanks.

    Hi Buccal whete can I get the sheets from?
  10. Hi all i currently rent and I have my fish tanks in a detached garage. it is freezing in there and I really would like to insulate it to help keep warm this winter and cooler in summer. I need an idea with a type of insulation that I can remove when I leave with ease and no fuss. My he structure of the building is made of wood and walls of fibro. Any my help would be great. John
  11. Hi Chris Was speaking to you the other night at the meeting regarding building a fishroom and how to keep electricity costs down. Looking to keep a mix Some tangs Some Malawi Maybe a pair of polleni. Miss breeding them and the relaxation I used to get from it. Plus you get to meet some great people in the hobby too.
  12. Looking to get back into it soon and just been looking around on the different forums and also went to the NSWCS meeting on Saturday. Seems like a lot of people have left or lost interest? John.

  14. I was wondering what rare cichlids we have here in Australia? Is there a list of rare or species which are lost or nearly lost? Cheers John
