  1. The NSW Cichlid Society committee is committed to following the advice of NSW Health and providing a safe environment for our members and guests. As a result, the committee has decided to cancel the upcoming Annual General Meeting and Mega Fish Raffle on 7 August 2021. The committee will post updates regarding future meetings, including the September meeting that was planned for Saturday 4 September 2021 closer to the date as the situation may change. Please check the NSWCS Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/nswcs) and website (http://nswcs.org
  2. Sounds exciting. Depends on your own interests I guess, but if I was setting up a big tank like that I would do a Tanganyikan community. I could see it having a dedicated shellbed on one end, with a tall rockpile beside it, then an expansive open water sandbed across to a shallower rockpile on the other end. I'd probably stock it with: A small group of Multis/Similis for the shellbed A group of Xeno Bathy for the open sandbed A school of Cyprichmomis for the open water For the rockpiles, I'd probably go with a pair of Juli Ornatus, a pair of Daffodils/brichard
  3. Thanks all. I have seen a couple more in my tank with black marks on the body and fins too. I might try and put them aside and try to breed them amongst themselves.
  4. Come along, become a member, have a chat with others about fish, grab some snacks at the supper table and buy some raffle tickets. You might get lucky and come home with some good fish.
  5. Hi Dravyn Hope to see you at the meeting this weekend! Just noting that if you intend on coming in August that there is no mini-auction in August as we have the AGM and a mega members raffle.
  6. It was a great day for both sellers and buyers. The auctioneers did a great job. I am happy with the fish I brought home; a new pair of apistogramma, some sandsifters and a group of caudopuncts. Hoping to breed and share them back through the club. Fingers crossed.
  7. Hopefully expensive ones. 😁 Not sure yet what colours I will put in.
  8. Nice, Rob. Welcome back. Africans seem to be much more popular than south Americans lately, with a good selection of both Malawi and Tangs. Catfish have become pretty popular of late too. I plan on putting some tangs, apistos and bristlenose through. See you there!
  9. Just saw them on the Allfish2u website. Ain't cheap... Looks like you are in Melbourne, I believe they ship. https://allfish2u.com/collections/live-fish/african-cichlid?page=3
  10. Hi Winston Very interesting and detailed post. I am working on setting up a new fishroom and am also looking at automated water change options. Thanks for sharing the information!!!
  11. Hi gang Has anyone seen an albino bristlenose before with black markings on it? I noticed one in my tank today with black on one of the fins and under belly. Interested to hear how this could happen genetically?
  12. I have 4 3 foot 'Aquarium Eco' branded eBay lights and my cousin has 8 of them. No issues for either of us so far after a few years. Can't go past the price. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/30-200cm-Full-Spectrum-Aquarium-LED-Light-Aqua-Plant-Fish-Tank-Lamp-Lighting-Bar-/233865080486?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 You can see what they look like in our fish rooms on my cousins YouTube channel by checking out the fish room tour videos, and also on this video specifically about the lights. I am building an expansion to my fish room and I plan to use these cheaper lights fo
  13. I don't know about bloat, but I personally wouldn't be feeding that to my fish. I try and avoid food that is mainly made up of 'meal' and extracts as I think they are mainly just fillers? I remember hearing at a meeting that usually the first 3 ingredients listed are the primary ingredients.
