  1. Hey Folks, The new kid on the block is at it again. Another question you may ask ... 🤯.. Fist of all, apologies for all the questions. I will try to contribute later when I am bit more qualified to help others. I have a few Red Lava rocks I have had for years in one of my tanks. Its nothing fancy, but I have heard they can be good for the aquariums help reduce No3 etc. I have also heard Texas Holey are good. Here comes the questions. 1. Are Lava rocks good as some claim them to be ? Also what are the negatives (if any) ? 2. Texas Holey rocks - What are the benefits of having them in an aquarium ? Any drawbacks ? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I keep Tanganyika cichlids, so the questions are relating to Tanganyika tanks. Cheers M

    Thanks @brucem I am thinking of getting some of the smaller types later on as I only have 2 tanks going at the moment. Looking at Daffodil, Mustax or Regani (or similar) to keep in a shared tank. When I get more tanks going probably looking at shell dwellers.

    Thanks Bruce ...I assume you meant Neolamprologus caudopunctatus ? Sorry I am new to this .. hence the novice question. They are the tiny Cichlids right?

    @Link2Hell Thanks buddy ! Yes I have spoken to Lloyd. He only had WC at the moment and I didn't want to drop a few grand at this point as I am starting out. The member you mentioned located in Wollongong, I think that's who I got my Chumbu from. I have 10 at the moment. I wanted some other varieties to keep it interesting. Thanks for the reply..

    @yanke Thanks mate. Driving to Newcastle might not work for me 🤣.. I was too lazy to go to Campsie.. If you ship fish, then we can talk .. They look good.. specially the ophthal motilapia ventralis..

    Hey Adam, Thanks for the reply mate. I know what you mean... I am definitely not looking for Tropeus as I had them before (lost them all 50 + to bloat). What I was thinking is to mix it up a bit. Have some bottom dwellers, some that like to stay on the top.. Shellie are definitely interesting.. I like interesting species than the readily available varieties. Also colours interest me as well. I have a 3x2x2, 4x2x3 and a 6x2.5x2.5 on its way .. so a few types I can accommodate.. Cheers M
  13. Hey Folks, I am in the process of settling up 2 tanks for Tangs at the moment. I have Frontosa Chumbu in one tank and the other is empty. Now is the time to look for more fish. Any suggestions ?.. Also please let me know if you are a Tang breeder or know any good breeders in Sydney. I am happy to get them shipped to Sydney as well. cheers M
