  1. Actually I think the video did load after all. It’s not showing a thumbnail but I can click it to play. @Trashlass keep an eye on those neons. I had some neons completely shred the fins of one of my males once.

  2. Hi Trashlass, lovely Bettas you have there! They look quite happy in their tank set-ups. Can't wait to see what you do with Ernie's tank - I'm sure the shrimp will appreciate the addition of more places to seek refuge I'll definitely go check out your insta! PS: Your video didn't upload. We can't upload video directly to the forum. I find it easiest to upload to youtube and share the link here.

  4. Congrats on no Facebook. You’re not missing much. As I said they can’t openly sell fish on Facebook so it’s not always clear who’s got fish available. Definitely not like they put up a list. I'm really only familiar with the shops near me, which are Amazing Amazon in Glen Waverley and Hi Fin Aquarium in Mount Waverley. Both look after their bettas well. They’re in decent sized tanks with filtration. But just because the bettas are in cups doesn’t necessarily mean they have a terrible life. Shops with really high turnover might only have the bettas for a short time before sale. For me there

  5. Hi there Trashlass. Welcome to the forum. I think I saw in the Melbourne Betta Breeders group on Facebook that a couple people had spawns. The problem is you have to be careful how you ask on Facebook because talking about buying or selling live animals wil cause the group to be shutdown. You could try sending individuals a private message. I saw a beautiful little white halfmoon male at Amazing Amazon on the weekend. It’s worth scouring the shops. You never know what gems you might find. What colours and tail types are you particularly fond of?

  6. Sometimes fishkeeping doesn’t quite look like you expected. But here’s a tip that I really need to record for myself more than anything—get Bunnings (or whichever hardware store you use) to cut your wood for you. Unless you’re a skilled carpenter with all the tools and knowledge on how to use them, you’ll save yourself a lot of hassle. After cutting all the bits I’d bought I discover I needed more. This time I used their cutting service. He did in 10 minutes what would have taken me a month of Sundays. Doing it myself with only a handheld power saw takes so long to setup, measure, clamp, measu

  7. Planning on doing a fair bit of work in the fishroom this weekend. Went to Bunnings yesterday to get all the MDF I’ll need for the racks that still don’t have a shelf. Even though the tanks fit fine on the rails it makes it hard when you want to move tanks around. As you pull a tank away there’s nothing to support it but your hands. Also with a board on the rails you can put smaller tanks in that spot if you want. MDF is highly toxic so a mask is mandatory. It also not tolerant of water so will need to be sealed. I’m being given a 4ft tank today that I’m planning on using as a sump for a recir

  8. Wow! How slack am I? My last post in this thread was 24/07/2013 and I never took the final photos. Of course "final" is completely misleading. It just means the point where I had to stop building and start fishkeeping. So let's do a bit of catch up on what's been happening in here. I did finish the final central rack and it held my beanie boxes for jarring males. I did not set up a recirculating filtration system for the beanie boxes. So I just had to do individual water changes and we all know how tough that is. I had planned to set up two big tubs for ageing water. This did not get done

  11. Hi all. I live on the Central Coast of NSW and have been in the Hobby for a bit over 25 years. I started out with a mixed STH American Chiclid aquarium and have since tried most other locations. I think i peaked a few years ago with a 200Gal High Tech Planted Discus tank but this burnt me out. Have always had tanks but the last few years it was back to basics and only kept 1 Tanganyika 4 foot and another 4 foot with Rainbows. In the last year or so i have really taken a liking to Nano tanks and their inhabitants and currently have 3 Nano tanks a 3 foot Bookshelf that i
