  1. A Walk Down Memory Lane

    found this in the old posts and thought it needed a rebirth ………… so what are some of your starting memories we all know where Andrew ended up nice to have Labyrinth (Riverside from the old days) as a sponsor
  2. Beginner question about water prep

    Pre conditioning water is easiest done in a drum depending on the amount of water you require, what size tank do you have, these can be 80lt or 200 lt sizes make sure that previous contents were foodstuff so there is no residual chemicals that could cause problems if leached from the plastic Buy a cheap pump and some hose, a tap near the outlet nozzle is handy for shutting off the water supply if you don't have an assistant or the power point is too far away Dechlorinators are personal choice but I prefer Seachem Safe powder version of Prime With 8.0 pH I would just look at buffering the hardness there are many on the market Seachem, Aqua-pics, API, Aquasonic, Continum personally I believe a conditioning salt mix better than just a kH buffer as it also supplies trace elements Keeping the kH (carbonate levels) up helps stabilise the water parameters Use an airstone and/or the pump to circulate the water and mix the buffer and dechlorinator in the drum Depending on water temp, time of year and where the drum is situated will determine if you use a heater or just add boiling water from the kettle to get the temp right, a couple of degree drop isn't normally going to worry the fish and you will only be doing 30% water change normally
  3. Is this a Electric Blue?

    looks like a White Night these are supposed to be a derivative of Electric Blue but the origin and history is still debatable
  4. A slow return to the hobby

    Welcome back Adam AoA is still going just google Labyrinth (was Riverside) is still on 9th Ave Campsie and Andrew is always happy to talk cichlids there are also smaller Centrals like Sajica and Septemfasciatus around if you want to go that way I still like my Eheims and prefer a cannister over an internal on a stand alone set up unless it is large and a sump is an option plenty of good pick ups in the classifieds, Petlink, Gumtree and various Facebook groups You know you can't just stop at one
  5. Is Aquaholics still in business?

  13. Help Needed

    Hi Chappells welcome to ACE the fish are bloated this usually this comes from feeding too much of the wrong food for the fish's digestive system what have you been feeding them and how often ? Metronidazole based drugs are usually used to treat this but when it is at this stage injection the drug into the stomach cavity would be the most efficient way to introduce it Andrew at Labyrinth in Campsie would be a good place to visit, give him a call 8068 4853
  14. Identifying some Malawis

    top one could be Aulonocara Fort Maguire Aulonocara hansbaenschi middle ????? bottom looks to be Nkhomo Benga Peacock Aulonocara baenschi with an OB Peacock in the tank they could also be just Asian peacock hybrids
  15. What fish is this? Is it a cross?

    Yep if you're not sure what they look like do a quick search first cost is the same to feed them or the true ones
