    I've always found that elodea has never done well in my heated tanks.

    We don't tend to hold one during the colder months. It's just too cold for the fish.

    You're right Lisa. Shemma's house is literally only a couple of minutes away from Fountain Gate & there's probably a pretty good chance it's one of his fish.

    I've used lead fishing sinkers to weight down plants before & never had a problem. I still have some in the tank with my breeding BN & they don't seem to have caused any issues.

    I wouldn't stress. Most of my fellas had no bubblenest (or a poor excuse for one), but that certainly never stopped them from spawning. They just made it up as they went along.

    Jess I don't think the baby cory's survived being left on that table in the direct sunlight. Too bright & too hot.

    I'd put an air stone or something like that along the back wall. I always think a curtain of air bubbles looks good.

    Oh Mitch, I'm really sorry to hear that. I was kind of hoping I was wrong. Also google "malawi bloat". I was told it has similar symptoms as dropsy, but other people say it's just another name for dropsy. You may get some better ideas for treatment that way before you think about euthanising him. Good luck!

    I can't give any definite diagnosis, but when you say the scales ares sometimes at a 90degree angle that straight away makes me think of dropsy. Would you say it looks like a pine cone? Google it & see what you think, but if it is dropsy, it's near impossible to cure.

    Here's a link to one of my CT's who died as a result of dropsy. There's a couple of photos there.dropsy

    I have to say I had an awesome day. Great weather, fantastic food, excellent company.....

    A HUGE thank you to Shemma & his lovely wife Layla for being such wonderful hosts. Shemma, your fish are AMAZING! You should be very proud.

    It was also lovely to catch up with people, meet some new friends & put some faces to names - I hope Lisa & Mike had a nice time & arrived home safely.

    Jess well done on the photos. They were great. & if you makes you feel any better, Nina got very sunburnt too!

    Looking forward to the next meet!

    Bettarazzi MAY have some spare beanie boxes, that way all you have to do is bag your fish to get them there. You'd have to ask him very nicely! lol

    I don't like your chances for public tansport out to Avalon. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere. Although I've looked on their website & they say there is a shuttle bus from Southern Cross Station to Avalon but you'd want to check the times & prices of that one. Here's their website: http://www.sitacoaches.com.au/avalon/

    Not to be crude, but they look like little sperms with eyes. They should be hanging tails down & if you watch really closely, you might see one dart out & go back again or dad should collect it & put it back.

About Me

There are 3 things that I'm mad about:

1. My family; especially my partner Rob & our 2 beautiful babies, Joshua & Ella

2. Our Mustang (my 3rd baby) or anything that goes fast

3. My fish! (my 4th, 5th, 6th etc... babies! lol)

That's me in a nut shell!
