  1. Glass thickness 8x2.5x2

    From memory 10mm thick up to 30inch high was safe. Its been awhile since I have had a tank built
  2. How much are my fish worth?

    Ballpark for all of them, in my opinion would be $100-$150. The Msobo, if they are pure, would be the the pick of them and would probably bring the best money. The others would be harder to sell and you may them herd to even give away. Good luck. Josh
  3. 8x3x2' Reef Tank Journal

    The fake/real rock looks the goods. I did a bit of a search for it and seems to get good reviews. I also seen its about half the price of the real thing. Are you going to use it as a base then add live rock or just use this rock as is?
  4. It will send it further underground. I noticed the article mentions animals sold at "markets". I wonder if The NSWCS has had a read of the current rules to see if what they do is legal.
  5. Spacing

    You need to work out how much room you need to get your arm all the way to the bottom of the tank if needed. I would start at around 250mm and see how that fits.
  6. Pseudotropheus Polit

    I had Polits years ago and they are great little fish. Males can be super hard on their girls. There was a large problem years ago when some suspect cross breeds were floating around. I think someone mixed some Rusties into them from memory. They also lost some of their charm when the Membe Deep turned up as the females were more colorful in the Membe's. I haven't seen either fish for a long time now
  7. Super red bristlenose catfish

    You must know what you paid for them. I am not a catfish person, but they look like Albinos feed on pumpkin
  8. Are African Cichilds right for my tank???

    Go Dwarfs, the only draw back would be the height of the tank and having fish that will fill the entire tank. I bred Demasoni for most of my fish keeping life. They are the nastiest little fish I have ever seen. If you want to do it in a tank that size give them heaps of places to hide and have a heap of fish in the tank. I was breeding in a 36x18x18 and had a minimum of 50 fish in the tank and a floor covered in 20mm PVC pipe.
  9. Large tanks and rental properties

    I never asked about it when I used to rent. I also never had an issue with a tank causing problems.
  10. Electric eel

    Works for me? or did you pay the $500?
  11. P. saulosi breeders - need help

    These were always a favorite of mine and I did breed them for many years. As Doug has said it is completely plausible that the females will look the way you have described and act the way they are.
  12. Help my tank is leaking!

    I would do as Foti said and wait until the new tank is there, move it all into a container, set up new tank and fill. Filters will be fine and it would be done in a day easy.
  13. Multi agression - not sure what to do

    Maybe not. They will turn up if there is more. They are very good parents.
  14. Multi agression - not sure what to do

    Get rid of the rocks and split the shells into a few groups with a sand mound in between. You can get away with one shell per fish and a few spares. The other option is get a heap more. I had nearly 100 in a 48x18x18 when I was breeding them. It may be to late if they have bred, but the dominate male is protecting his fry that's all. Its going to be hard to do in a small tank.
