  1. Hi Everyone, I hope you are keeping safe and well. I wanted to ask if shade cloth was safe to use cut up into strips for breeder tanks (female hide outs). I bought a roll (coloroo) which I am hesitant to open just yet. I figure if you can use this as shade for vegi gardens then surely nothing nasty should leach out ? I could be wrong Thank you, UCB
  2. Steve & Ren are fantastic to deal with and do a great job with tank install +1 Western Sydney Aquariums Regards, Mo
  3. thanks for the video, looking forward to the updates.
  4. I was thinking about Membe Deep, earlier today, the last time I saw them was around 2013/14 - I believe John was successful in breeding them. I never saw them since, I would love a group to breed
  5. my friendly advice is keep what you love, all fish go in cycles, whats not "hot" today becomes "hot" tomorrow. Great quality polits shouldn't be that hard to sell, they look amazing.
  6. Sounds like you have an excellent variety :D, In my opinion a few days of frozen won't hurt. I have noticed though, that once Frontosa get large, they loose interest in eating every day, so don't freak out if that happens from time to time.
  7. Brine is fine, I love the Hikari Brine and Spiralina mix. I feed my frontosa a combination of frozen (Brine included) and dry foods and brine shrimp is fine to feed. Currently my favorite is the Hikari Jumbo Mysis.
  8. cheers brad - still open to more options.
  9. Hi Guys, I am looking at purchasing a large tank and can't move it myself, does anybody no any one who does it professionally. Cheers
  10. Bradc - @brucem has some of the nicest kigoma around and spare males for sale. Disclaimer, they were mine and I raised them for 4 years from 5cm to 28cm, still very nice specimens Don't expect anywhere near the blues you find on Zaire Frontosa - Kigoma do have some signs of blue though with a lovely golden yellow on the fins. I posted a video of more than likely what to expect, they are a pleasure to breed and raise.
  11. L2H is right. Depending on their size, I would put them in a 5x2x2 or larger.
  12. You are able to agitate the surface with the return of your canister filter. I personally use them and add sponge filters - extra oxygen and filtration :D. With African Cichlid, people tend to overstock/increase numbers in order to limit aggression on one specific fish. more fish results into extra waste and less oxygen so it won't hurt to have an air stone or two. brand is of personal choice - something like a twist outlet 200LPH or higher could be used. I also use airpumps to connect my air driven breeder boxes which house fry and circulates water from the main tank into the
  13. I built a 3ft fish section in my sump - so sump for me
  14. I use a cheap stick on glass thermometer (similar to below) - I put it on the opposite side of the tank where heater is placed. https://www.thetechden.com.au/Pet_Worx_Glass_Thermometer_p/ak01.htm They are digital alternatives which also are priced reasonably well. Other Alternatives https://www.thetechden.com.au/searchresults.asp?Search=thermometer Your local LFS should most likely have these, I have only used thetechden as a reference.
