  1. I was just looking at his page and read something amusing. He says he has 30 fry from fish sourced in OZ...... Marbled Vieja fenestrata........Did he fly home with them in his luggage?
  2. There are some really good points in that post Chuck. I Moderate here but my hands are tied to the amount of access I have. Basically I can remove posts and lock them if shit hits the fan. Ged logs in maybe once a year and that usually coincides with the forum shutting down because someone hasn't paid the bill. I have been here since the day it change from the Sydney Cichlid page and tried to evolve into a national forum. I have seen it then trying to evolve from a Cichlid specific forum to a general aquarium forum and I don't think it has ever really found its place. All of the super busy forums that I used to use have long gone. Tropheus Fanatics is now face book based, Frontosa fanatic is gone, QLD cichlid forum gone, Pleco fanatics gone, boronia, Drumpak (LOL), they are all gone. There is plenty more that I cant think of right now. Years ago Sydney was the main stage and I think now the place to be seems to be over west. I am NSW based, so this place has always been home to me. I will add that I believe that the clubs are having similar issues when it comes to patronage. I have never seen a Facebook page that offers what good forum can offer. Most are run to support the owners of the pages views and anyone who dares to argue gets punted. Maybe some of the rules are old and probably do need updating. A forum is only ever as good as the community that uses it. If people don't engage here then the forum will die out.
  3. From memory 10mm thick up to 30inch high was safe. Its been awhile since I have had a tank built
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. 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.

    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.

    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
  9. You must know what you paid for them. I am not a catfish person, but they look like Albinos feed on pumpkin
  10. 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.
  11. I never asked about it when I used to rent. I also never had an issue with a tank causing problems.

    Electric eel

    Works for me? or did you pay the $500?
  13. 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.
