  1. those tubs are what mine sites and large contractors get oil in i pump them out for a living (they are actually call palletcoms) engine oils and lubratcants go in it
  2. If you are going to drill the tank get it done professionally cause if they break it its up to them to replace and not you if you attempt it. Nice size tank to you get a good deal on it ?
  3. Thanks so much your a real help ill look at those sites and see how i go cheers
  4. thanks for the info as far as the shutter speed i have a a75 canon and have looked all over the camera and cant find one functon to change this. do you mean macro i dont know what i even means could someone explain for me in simple terms (real simple).
  5. first time pic poster go easy i have photoshop 7 any advise on how to use this would be great as i have no idea at all
  6. and thats all you can do is try for the safety of the fish
  7. If i owned a LFS and the above happened in my store i would be wee wEEed off nothing was said to buyer and seller. As for the LFS i would have asked he/she to have a word on the side away from other customers and explain to them what has happened and your opinion in the matter. Why away from other customers because this makes you look more professional over the matter most people new to the hobby assume LFS are the best people with information and what they say is correct so by proving them wrong the could possibly lose customers, which is not what you want to do it will only add heat to the discussion. Hopefully the will see you have acted in a reasonable manner and will take your info onboard. I believe LFS make most of there profits on people returning to the stores for purchases, and getting a good customer base and reputation most of LFS advertisement is done buy word of mouth so its in there best interest to do the right thing As for the customer money does matter so they want to know that they have a bargin or a good purchase so with out making them sound dumb explain gently about what they are going to have to do to care for this fish, and then from there they can make the decision to wether they keep it or not. I would do this outside the store or away from any ear length of the LFS staff you want nothing more that an agurment in public. all in all everyone is responsible for the correct keeping and survival of fish wether they are expensive or not, rare or in abundance, gold fish or cichlid. so Yes bring it up with bother parties but at the right time, tone and manner. just my opinion sorry about the rant
  8. Funny this I had fish in the lounge room and were quite active always out swiming and always saw people never a problem i got rid of that tank and put them in one in the shed until i move house (real soon i hope) so now they only see me for feeding time once a day and boy have they got timid all run (lol) swim and hide when i enter the shed. doesn't bother me at all cause i know once they are in the new house we brought they will come good over time. I have also found adding new fish can help the older fish calm down a bit but as for the new ones it takes a few months for them to settel in their new homes also
