  4. wild caught v tank bred

    hey guys been out of the scene for a few years now but never even looked at getting wild caught fish b4 and am just curios as to what the differences between buying these would be, besides the water quality. like the colours of wild would be better or worse than tank bred. and any other differences. thanks in advance

  9. i'm going up to coffs harbour

    hi there about the only good one is in woolgoolga bout 20 ks north of coffs called "just fish".just be wary once you get in there the owner steve will talk your ears off. he would have the best range of cichlids in the area.the only other shop any good is the discount pet wharehouse in the homebase centre on the north side of coffs.lots of tanks but mainly peacefuls.to get to the one in woopi go from coffs north on the highway till you get to woopi(woolgoolga)take first right follow to t intersection turn right then go to centre of town,just before the islands in middle of road turn right and staight away turn left .on the right there is an arcade with a friut shop and video shop at the front just walk between these and you will see it.anyway i live in grafton 80ks north of coffs and when we go south thats where we go .hth iain & mell ps if you go to just fish in woopi can you tell us what you thought. thanks

  12. For the Electrician's out there

    hi nigel im an electriciain but its been about ten years since ive worked on single phase cap start motors.it looks ok but that green wire coming out of the motor thats connected to the positive from the incoming lead doesnt look right as green normally represents earth.but like i said its been ages for these little motors. on thinking more there is two windings in a single phase motor one for start the other for run so dissregard what i said about that green wire from the internals i think that if u had them the wrong way it could either burn out or just not run.hey get a three phase one then i could be of more help.sorry mate.if in doubt turn it on and off really quick,if it goes your laughin if not, back to taking it to someone but that would be your best bet anyway,might cost a few dollars but better safe than sorry anyway like old mate said next time before shots would be handy or write the terminations down then you got no probs sorry cant be more help c ya iain if you dont need it till later in the week i will take a copy of the photo into work and get a second spark to have look as he finished his apprenticeship 18 months ago so this stuff will be fresh in his mind so to speak
