  1. I am not sure mate... I had them for about 8 months now. Some are about 15 cm.. some are about 8 cm .. I think they are between 12 to 18 months .. just a guess ..
  2. @expat701 Welcome to the forum and back into fish keeping. Are you looking for a display tank or a breeding set up ? I have a cade tank, its a good tank but the cost is on the higher side. You can negotiate price etc. Juwel is also very good from a quality perspective. I have gone through this process (tank, lights, filters, heaters etc) a few months back. If you research and happy to take time, you can get a significant discounts off retail prices.
  3. Oh okay.. I know what you mean.. tank space is the issue.. I wish I had unlimited space to have a small indoor aquarium ðŸĪŠ I am trying to convince my wife to extend the house a bit so I can put a few more tanks. But the house is only 2 years old.. so she is not keen .. oh well.
  4. @adamgatt Hey Adam, Here is the list of species I have in the tanks ..(created last night to track what I have) - 6 x Yellow Moshi (Petrochromis yellow moshi) - 10 x Frontosa Chumbu - 5 x Tropheus – Moliro Red (Tropheus Species Red ) - 9 x Tropheus Moorii chipimbi - 2 x Neolamprologus leleupi (Lemon Cichlid) - 6 x Neolamprologus Pulcher Daffodil - 5 x Neolamprologus Mustax - 6 x Paracyprichromis Nigripinnis - 3 x Ophthalmotilapia Ventralis Kambwimba - 10 x Tropheus Moorii Chaitika Blue Rainbow - 2 x Gnathochromis permaxillaris (pair) - 3 x Ophthalmotilapia ventralis "Chaitika" (Trio) - 3 x Julidochromis transcriptus (Masked Julie) I have decided to keep Tangs exclusively.. so hopefully I can breed some fry and contribute to the hobby..
  5. I thought that may have been the case when you asked the question. Yes yes I get it.. I will definitely join the club and pay a visit when things are back to normal.
  6. Yes Adam .. I did .. 😃
  7. Thanks Adam .. took long enough to get the tank and enjoy it.
  8. @boonahsider Hey mate.. Yes they are.. not directly from Jim but F2s..
  9. Thanks Bruce .. sticking with Tangs for the time being .. I love their colours and character..
  10. @Link2Hell I have the following .. Tropheus moorii chipimbi, Petrochromis sp. Moshi Yellow, Chumbu Frontosa, Neolamprologus leleupi and Julidochromis marlieri.. Petro and Frontosa would go in to separate tanks once they are bigger ..
  11. Hey Folks, Few trys at taking some pictures.. some Frontosa, Tropheus and Petros..
  12. Hey Mate, Sorry to hear about your fish. As for the tank, I would do a clean up and get it cycled again given you medicated with antibacterial meds. That is my personal view. Clean start to the tank system. If you have other tanks you can use some water from those tanks to kick start the process. Good luck ..
  13. @Link2Hell Thank you .. I know it is a bit of a weird mix of species.. As for food I feed them NLS and Tropical food .. I know about he orange byproduct.. lets see how I go .. Decisions 🙃
  14. Finally the tank is up and running (start cycling last Sunday). Filled with some of my old tank water + running the back up Fluval from my other tank to get it running. I am also using one of the internal filters as a temp measure to polish water. I need to think about the rock set up. Unfortunately I am not the most creative so need to find ideas to inspire new layout ideas. Once completely up and running it would be running with the following. 1 x FX4 1x Fluval 307 12000 air pump (Aqua One) 2 x AI Prime HD lights 40 Kg of coral sand ~ $40 Kg of rocks 300W Eheim heater 200W back up heater Any ideas for plants ? Tank would be a Lake Tanganyika tank with Frontosa, Tropheus and Petros (until they get big)
