  1. Glass thickness 8x2.5x2

    Yeh Steve was really helpful. And built it exactly like I wanted.
  2. Glass thickness 8x2.5x2

    All up it cost me $2100 for the tank and sump. Tank is 8x2.5x2.5 ft 12mm all around with 6mm lids. Back was covered with black vinyl with 3 40mm hole drilled with weir covered in black acrylic. The sump is 5x2x2 with 10mm base and 6mm sides and divisions and 4mm lids. Plus delivery.
  3. NSWCS October Major Auction

    Seen few guys from Adelaide with Maison reef. One is trying to establish a colony but not sure where he sourced his colony from .
  4. NSWCS October Major Auction

    Been looking for N. meleagris, metriaclima fainzilberi maison reef and exochochromis anagenys.
  5. Glass thickness 8x2.5x2

    You won’t be disappointed. The tank also came with a 5x2x2 sump.
  6. Glass thickness 8x2.5x2

    I got a custom 8ft tank (8x2.5x2.5) made by Steve from Western Sydney Aquarium which was 12mm on all side.
  7. Otopharynx tetrastigma body shape

    Hey ducksta thank you for the reply and sharing the info. Yeh I am willing to grow him out and see how he turns up. Hopefully he starts colouring up soon. I do have the lot number and maybe next auction I’ll inform them.
  8. Otopharynx tetrastigma body shape

    Next time I’ll know better to check the fish before I buy. But it was double bagged and plus I didn’t have any clue what tetrastigma looks like. Maybe I’ll ask one of the guys who runs the auction and see what’s up with that.
  9. Otopharynx tetrastigma body shape

    Like it mentioned previously I purchased him from the NSW cichlid society auction. It’s meant to be an adult approximately 6-7cm maybe even bigger. But i was surprised when I looked at his body in the morning when I turned the light on. He looks a bit deformed to me. But then again I’m no expert that’s why I am here looking for answers. Thank you for the reply Roos. I hope your tank is going well.
  10. Otopharynx tetrastigma body shape

    Can someone shed some light regarding the body shape of Otopharynx tetrastigma. I got a tetrastigma from the auction last night. It appears to have a short body. I did a google search and appears to have longer body shape. I have attached some pictures for reference.
  11. My Malawi set up

    Keep doing weekly water changes and give them a good diet and they will get massive in no time
  12. Firemouth fry with parents

    Great looking firemouths. I would be interested to get few of the fry once they grow up.
  13. My Malawi set up

    Thank you. I can’t believe they grew so quick.
  14. My Malawi set up

    So this is my 5x2x2 set up. Bought majority of them from NSW cichlid auctions in March. Few were purchased from local breeders. All these fish were purchased as juveniles. The pictures are roughly 8months apart. Looking to upgrade into 7x2.5x2.5 set up. Thought I would share it here.
  15. Looking For Steve From Dapto
