  2. Great choice by the way. Those are the 2 first species of cichlid I kept and don't plan on getting rid of.
  3. Nice. I don't think you will have a problem then. Put a small rock pile on one end for the brichardi, and a shell bed on the other side with open space in between and I reckon they will be fine. If the brichardi are older / much larger than the multis I'd probably release them first and let them get comfortable on the shell bed before putting the brichardi in.
  4. What's the dimensions/footprint of the tank?
  5. No worries, Chris @Link2Hell. I have been filming my progress and Jason has been putting it on YouTube every so often. I've finally finished the building works and have started with the fun bit, the fish stuff. 😎 I've really enjoyed the planning and designing of it too. Can't wait until it is done so that I can get some additional species.
  6. Many thanks again Winston for sharing your knowledge. I was originally planning to have large storage tanks/drums outside and then pump in from them (that's what I do in my current setup). After doing more research though and reading your posts I am now likely going to go straight from the tap with the inline filtration as you have described. I just got most of my supplies delivered today to build the stands and run the drainage/overflows. I'll share some progress and the end result back here as I progress with it. Thanks again.
  7. Hi Winston I have been reading your post over and over again. It has some great info. I am looking at inline filters to take the approach you mentioned, straight from the tap to refill my tanks. I was just wondering if you could provide a link to the inline filters you use, or if you think something like this would be suitable? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/324712753931?hash=item4b9a636b0b:g:y-4AAOSwfrJg7T0i Also wondering, how did you heat the water? Did you use an inline heater? I am considering using the right mix of hot and cold water to deliver the right temperature. I'd appr

  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
