  1. I know it may sound dumb but ……………. you do have the taps open
  2. @pride there is more in the water than what we test for and that is what will irritate them I think also the pH buffing will have minimal difference as Sydney water is approx 7.2 but soft and you are buffing to tank parameters, some are more sensitive than others
  3. @pride usually they do this if they have some sort of irritation and is like having a scratch water chemistry after a WC seems to be a popular time for them to do it also
  4. Seeing as we have missed the revised distancing rules by a few days committee has decided to cancel December meeting and look to holding meetings from February 2021 Enjoy the festive season and stay safe people If you need to buy fish food Ray will be in the school car park with stock available from 7pm to 8pm Saturday 5/12/2020 Nuwarra Public School
  5. Well that could be a problem I'm guessing it could be secondary bacterial but unless you can figure that out you can recommend a treatment metronidazole is used to treat hole in the head and may work
  6. @aymenz I would suggest bagging him up and take a trip to Labyrinth Andrew could take a scaping on se what comes up under the microscope that way you would have abetter idea of what is going on and how to treat it just give Andrew a call 8068 4853 to work out a day
  7. @Net welcome to ACE can you add a location to your profile please regarding your Convicts where is the swelling and is the fish male or female ?
  8. Just a reminder if you need your cichlid meeting fix with Sydney being cancelled until further notice and don't mind a drive to Wollongong Saturday 14/11/2020 6.30pm start Koonawarra Primary School Cnr Fowler & Byamee Sts Dapto See on Facebook for details - there is a limit of 50 people in the hall and I'm told this fills fast A talk on filtration by Alan Tracey Raffle - trade table and an AUCTION
  9. @expat701 hi and welcome back what part of Sydney are you in ? Western Sydney Aquariums do nice tanks and are reasonably priced based at Penrith but like most businesses travel to do install work
  10. @Beaz seems to be working well and you have brought a good thought up also with the food flavouring the crickets BTW I think it might be Mrs Polleni
  11. Hi All I know everyone is hanging to get to a meeting but once again the committee has decided to cancel the meeting due to the ongoing restrictions we have on use not only with distancing but the school itself The way things are going I'm wondering if Santa will even make it this year stay tuned for monthly updates Illawarra will still be holding their meeting on 14/11/20 as far as I know at Koonawarra Primary School See on Facebook for details - there is a limit of 50 people in the hall and I'm told this fills fast
  12. @crawf you could try Andrew at Labyrinth Aquarium in Sydney 02 8068 4853 he got them in when the last fry came up for sale in Melb but that was a while ago don't know if he kept any back they pop up in Gumtree sometimes or in some of the online groups
  13. @MattG_Sydney what else do you have in there
  14. once again I get to advise you that the monthly meeting has been cancelled due to the risks not being acceptable yet so NO October meeting when we should have had a major auction but before we can think of these again we need to have a meeting to hold the AGM, but I don't think we will get to hold the fish raffle with it like usual we are all hanging to get to some normality in our monthly routine again for the first Saturday of the month but until things change with restriction it has been deemed not viable for health and safety of members and guests plus the economic factor if there is a positive case Hang in there guys it will change but we just don't know when
  15. Never used the brand but doing a quick google search I came up with this states does not contain sex hormones claims it can bring a fish to full colour in 14 days nothing outstanding in ingredients list but nothing to tell you what premix or attractans are usually can tell quality of the food by the first 4 ingredients and this leaves me wondering if it is floor sweepings from a cereal factory bottom line you get what you pay for but @ $29.00 for 150g I would want a better menu list Absolute Color Enhancer Food 150g Absolute colour fish food is ideal for enhancing fish to their full colours. It is a sinking pellet fish food for all fish from small fish to large fish. As well as its colour enhancing vitamins, it also contains high protein for fish growth. Guaranteed to colour your fish to its full colours in 14 days. See feeding instructions below. Recommended/feeding instructions Feed your fish once or twice per day continuously for 14 days. Your fish will reach its full colour after 14 days. After this 14 day period, continue to feed your fish with Absolute colour fish food 3 or 4 times per week to maintain the full colour of your fish. Ingredients: fish meal, products and by products of cereal, fishoil, premix, attractans Vitamin C Source: Ascorbic cid, Polyphosphate This food does not contain sex hormone.
  16. Frontosa /Gibberosa like the feel of a cave like structure and are piscavores Tropheus like open water with flat surfaced rocks to grazed on and are vegetarian so require a lower protein based food to process through their long intestinal tract Petrochomis are the same NLS claim their food is a balanced diet for both and it is a good food but I dislike the orange byproduct you are left with after it is digested in your substrate and filters Personally I would go one way or the other depending on what species you like most
  17. @AndrewM mate where do I start the OB D Comp are hybrids hence why there is variation The C caeruleus looks more like C spilorhynchus The L hongi is an Aulonacara possible Ngara flametail I have serious doubts about the knowledge of wherever you got them from and their sales ethics
  18. @MFF you have found the problem with Perspex sheets https://www.bunnings.com.au/suntuf-sunlite-8mm-x-610mm-x-2-4m-clear-twinwall-polycarbonate-roofing_p1010564 this is a better option as it won't warp
  19. UV has a place but ………….. I feel it creates lack of resistance in anti bodies in fish if you have algae or disease problems then they are benificial good if you run a multi tank system on a sump
  20. @AndrewM what part of Melb are you in Andrew ? consider VCS and EDAS clubs if you want to network they will be itching to get back to meetings I know we are in Sydney with NSWCS
  21. sera flora flakes, dainichi veggie deluxe in baby size, repashay gel super green some small quantities of mozzie wrigglers in summer there are other veggie based foods that are quite good also
  22. good stuff FYI they will try to things 2/3 their size
  23. Petenia splendida won't bother any plants as they are a pure piscivore and don't dig they do use plants as cover while hunting which colour form are you looking at the Green or the Red
