    Hi all, I'm in the outer eastern 'burbs of Melbourne, had fish as a kid, then recent-ish-ly I decided a few goldfish in a pond would be nice. I got a few 3cm uncoloured feeders, then my ex gave me his 65L curved front aquarium that his fish had outgrown and, sucker that I am, I bought the goldfish inside that winter so they wouldn't get too cold... They learnt to beg for food, a year later they're now brightly coloured ~7 inch long piggies (yes, the tank is overstocked, I'm upgrading the pond to something significantly bigger and booting them back outside). I've got a 2 foot dirted planted tank as well, mosquitoes decided to take an interest while the plants were establishing so I bought 6 feeder guppies to eat the mosquitoes and a day later, 3 of them decided to have half a billion babies. (For a bunch of feeders, they certainly make some very pretty babies. And yes, buying feeder fish and keeping them as pets is a theme.) I've since gotten two pre-loved tanks (3 and 4 foot), resealed the 3 foot one and have just recently set up a deep sand bed with Matten filter and a straight-trunked forest hardscape in it. The chemistry side of things interests me greatly, and I'm more interested in functioning ecosystems needing minimal input than pristine display tanks (pest snails and duckweed are deliberately added to all my tanks, and I use the duckweed to make my own fishfood), which is why the idea of a deep sand bed was so appealing. The 4 foot tank will need Some Work to get it to a point where I can reseal it, and I have no idea what I'm going to put in it (guppies?!) but I'm sure I'll work it out... I feel like a lot of people aren't interested in my level of fish-nerdery, but if anyone knows of IRL groups local to me, let me know?

  4. Great looking tank! Sadly, only the first video works. It seems a lot of pics are now defunct in threads. Corys are such a pleasure to have in any tank!
  5. Hi all, My name's Sass and I'm from Adelaide (Inner North East). My son and I started with one simple Neon Tetra and shrimp tank afew years ago and were both instantly hooked. We've kept a wide range of fish over the last few years, from Bettas to Rainbow fish, Pakistani loaches to breeding Emerald Corydoras. We currently have 2x cichlid tanks (one is more aggressive), plus a grow-out tank for our Saratoga Leichardti, plus Platys & fry, and Tetras. Our 4ft cichlid community tank includes: Ellioti, Bolivian Butterflies, Gouramis, Albino Bristlenoses, Corydoras and an L333 Pleco. Our more aggressive 6ft tank focuses on Jaguar cichlids, and is mostly juveniles. These include: Jaguars, Green Terror, Super Green Texas, Jack Dempsey, Gold Spot Pleco, Clown loaches, Silver Dollars and Filament Barbs. As these grow and mature, we will need to adjust the stock, but for now it's working well. We intend to breed the Ellioti in the future, and one dabble with a marine tank, depending on finance. I absolutely love the hobby and we both find it gives us a lot of peace and relaxation. You'll often find us having fallen asleep next to a tank! Looking forward to getting to know you all & being part of this community. Thanks, Sass

  11. Hello everyone, I am new to this hobby. looking to start with a betta. my fish tank(90x45x35cm) is cycling as of now. If any hobbyists from Melbourne wish to share their care tips(considering colder temps and sudden changes), please help a mate out. I would also like to get in touch with breeders who like to sell their bettas. finally, i hope to get info regarding how to change my fish tank to a community tank as i am planning to add more fish over the course of the time( my betta permitting :D)
  12. Sorry to hear that. It’s hard to know what could have caused that.
  13. I would give him a complete water change immediately. It sounds like a bad reaction to something in his water. Save some old water and take it to an aquarium shop to get tested. They should be able to advise you further. Good luck.
  14. Hi, I would appreciate your urgent help. My betta is not well. He hasn’t been moving around like he usually does since last 3 days. He stays at one place and is clearly struggling. He stays at the bottom of the tank in the same position. He has developed a white pale skin around his neck and his gills are also looking very white. Could you please advise what could be wrong? and how can we treat him.
  15. Hi Betta_Addict Welcome to the forum. You should be able to find a koi or salamander pair pretty easily. There seem to be plenty around.
  16. I especially like kois and salamanders, I've only ever kept plakat, and my fave fin types are spade tail, EE, and double tail. I am currently seeking to get a salamander breeding pair to start attempting to breed. Im hoping for double or spade tail EEs
