  1. Spacing

    What spacing does everyone have between their shelves on their pallet racking? Biggest tank that will be on my racks will be 2ft tall. Whats a good working height area.
  2. Pseudotropheus Polit

    Sort of the reason i want to get these from my mate. The males are stunning and if lost it would be ashame. I dont have the connetion you have to them. I cant say that i "love" them in the way i do other species but they seem to be getting harder to find. Thought if i got some and were able to breed and get some fry growing id be able to move easy and help restock them within the hobby. Ill possibly still get them and just raise a few batches of fry and see how i go with moving them on and if i cant atleast ive still got a cool fish im my garage. What ratios do you have mate? Im unsure what my mate has i think he said he had 6 in total with fry so im guessing ill get a less then ideal ratio to begin with.
  3. Pseudotropheus Polit

    Are these sought after in the hobby? Ive been thinking of buying some from a mate whos wanting out of the hobby but he has found it hard to move fry on. He doesn't really travel to major cities like newcastle or sydney to try and sell and i seem to go there abit. Be nice if i knew i could move fry on before taking them on.
  4. Brine shrimp and fronts

    Yeah they are getting some size females range from about 12cm to about 23cm and the male is about 32cm so yeah. Still settling in i had to move them from a standard 6fter they shared with other fish to my 4x2x2 by themselves. My 6fter sprung a leak friday. Was not happy.
  5. Brine shrimp and fronts

    Ive got hikari gold, dainichi, sera discus which i found the really condition my geos and haps well and frozen brine. I have been mixing the dainichi and hikari gold when i feed because both the previous ownera fed hikari but i usually buy dainichi lol so trying to ween them onto my staple for my fish. I like feeding the brine just wasn't sure if its a good treat or something that can be feed abit more regular. Was going to try them on some cooked prawns as well. Get them nice and fat and hopefully they will start breeding for me.
  6. Brine shrimp and fronts

    Wondering if brine is ok a couple times a week? I have access to mysis as well. Abit of conflicting info on line about what holds more nutritional value and hoe often is ok to feed. I understand they can get hooked if feed to much. Ive never really offered frozen to any of my fish so abit unsure. Cheers people
  7. Side drop filters

    Perfect that will do me then. Wont be a massive bioload. 6 fronts to begin with more if i can find more females if not will be a few calvus or comps. 10mm glass is what i ordered today should be fine hopefully.
  8. Side drop filters

    Pick up my 6x2x2 off a mate next weekend and im going to be making up a side drop for it. Wondering what thickness glass you would recommend? Also what % of the tank should the side drop consist of? Was thinking 15%. So about 24cm of the 180cm sound about right?
  9. Waste in cyps

    Got send some Enrofloxacin and dimetridazole from sydney and mixed in with some nls food hoping this will cure it
  10. Waste in cyps

    I feed what ever powder andrew from labyrinth gave me when i bought them cant remember brand sorry. I also feed dianichi xl pro grow pellets also brine shrimp. I use continuum to buffer the ph and hardness of my water. I feed usually 2 or 3 times a day but have figured out thats probably not enough. Water parameters are. Nitrates never go over 20ppm but vary depending on how many times a week i feed the brine. Seems to raise the nitrates more. Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Ph 8.8 Kh around 20 Gh around 18 depending on how much of a heap i do of the teaspoons with the continuum. My tap water is around that 7.8 to 8 level and gh and kh of about 15 so i dont use alot really. I do 2 water changes a week of 50% and just temp match as close as i can with my hands.
  11. Waste in cyps

    Anyone have an things that have worked to cure waste in cyprichromis? I lost a cyp today and i believe i have about 3 more that may have it. Not sure about what has caused it as water is A1. Some have suggested temp swings but im not sure. Ive read iodine dosing can help. Looking after any suggestions really im at abit of a loss dont wanna loose more $$ worth of fish.
  12. Aquarium Removalist

    Seen an add on aquariums nsw or Sydney on facebook with a bloke offering to move large tanks for a fee. He didnt state pricings or anyrhing but may be worth a look.
  13. Fronts kigoma

    Hey mate yeah that would be good if you could inbox me a price etc we can discuss then. The bloke im ment to be buyingthe females off is kinda stuffing me around now but if we can organize everything then its settled before hand etc lol.
  14. Fronts kigoma

    Do kigoma get the nice blues etc you see on other fronts colour patterns? Im not a massive fan of fronts so ive never really looked into them but ive been offered some big females for cheap and if they get some blue on their fins etc would probably make me appreciate them abit more lol. Id have to source a male aswell so not sure how hard that will be to find either.
  15. 3 foot- 40 gal stocking question

    Tank that size id keep it species orientated. Salousi would be a good choice for variations in colour from male to female. Demasoni are relatively small mbuna but not sure if your area has them if your limited for variety.
