    All aquatics life forms.<br />I absolutley adore my;<br />14inch Red Oscar - Oscar<br />3ft Silver Eel - George<br /><br />and all of my Betta lines -<br />Lavender BF Halfmoon/Halfmoon Plakat<br />Black Copper Halfmoon<br /><br />I am a member of the 2007 Frankston Softball Association Victorian champions and many other titles throughout the Waverly Vipers Softball Squad. - Recently retired from Softball after 10 years of activity.
  1. ahhh its ROB mate. lol anyway your forgiven. Im glad you made it. We are all wonderful people and avid collectors. let me know when you are thinking of breeding and ill gladly set you up with a starter culture of micro worm free of charge. take care.
  2. Welcome back to the betta world. Everything is nice and colourful and full of aggression. Enjoy your stay and get collecting!!
  3. They do best in cooler water but will do well in temperatures upto 20c. It does shorten their life span plus unless you have a monster tank for some goldfish then they are best left in ponds. By keeping them in a confined space such as a tank you are stunting their growth. When this occurs They may appear to stop growing externally but their internal organ continue to grow until cardiac arrest.
  4. look for whih fish is missing its gravid spot behind the belly. A young female will not have a huge batch. Batch size depends further on age and number of batches prior to the current one. Congrats on the fry. I would suggest just feeding ground flake and finley chopped blood worm instead of egg yolk. It is messy and if used then use it sparingly. Even better if you could get some micro worm to feed for the first week or some grindal worm. another note on identifying the female that gae birth. Even if you wait for the fry to grow and in hope they turn out like the female you suspect.
  5. loks to be a cobra male. Of course it probebly is a cross breed of something else but the cobra patterning is definately there. I first started with these guys as well. many years ago. beautiful specimen.
  6. Platies, sword tails and mollies are live bearers just like guppies. They are all easy breeders. Corydoras are slightly more challenging. Bristlenose are easy. Pakistani loaches are difficult. gourami are bred just like Betta with the use of a bubble nest. I would use these fish in a community tank together but if breeding guppies or any of the other, i would keep species only tanks with guppies in their own tank reeding and vice versa. Where abouts are you from? If you are near me then ill definatley get some guppies of you in future.
  7. As fr as fish with your guppies in the community tank. I would suggest some Corydora catfish Bristlenose Pakistani loaches Flying fix (Siamese algea eater) Platties Sword tails Dwarf gourami These are just some of the more basic community fish for you to think about. Considering your only just starting up again its best to keep it simple. Plants that i would suggest for a simple low light aquarium Java moss Java fern Anubia Amazon swords Vallisneria Cryptocoryne Banana lilly
  8. Hi Gulp, Nice of you to join us here at AusAua. Maybe you ould post some pictures of some of your finer guppies in the fish show room. take care
  9. id be able to give you some cheap java moss, java fern and some duck weed if you wanted to drive over. Im in springvale south, 3172 Java moss and fern are by far the easiest plants to care for. Simply put them into your tank and off you go. You can attach java moss and fern to wood and rocks which look nice once grown in. You can also make a moss wall or lawn using java moss and some plastic mesh. If this is your first time using plants in aquatics then id suggest you skip c02 for now. It is not needed for java fern and the likes. These are all low light plants and grow well enough wit
  10. Be sure to have lots of vinegar eel or microworm onside as well as brine shrimp cysts.
  11. welcome to AusAqua Danielle. Glad you could join us. There is alot to learn from all of the fine people here and we wish you the best. When you are looking for some plants let me know or post a wanting to buy ad in the classifieds. Im sure there are a heap of us here that have some tanks in need of a good prune. Are you planning on breeding anytime soon?
  12. where do i go to get some of this stuff? not in any aquariums in melbourne..
  13. define bad? as far as im aware i think guppies are good to be cross bred over a space of 6 or 8 generations with out any real deformities, hough dont hold me to this nor ask me where ive heard his from. as far as colouring. I dont think ive ever witnessed or heard a case of a generation of guppy that has been left with no colouration directly aused by cross breeding.
  14. ive got a 4ft planted display that currently holds 1x flying fox algea eater (the real one) 30x neon tetras 10x rummy nose tetras 4x corydora aeneus 2x corydora jullii 2x pakistani loaches (yoyo loach) and one lonley accidental harlequin rasbora (was accidently netted at the shops. Has happily joined the school of neons and is doing fine). soon to add 10x blue emperor tetra as far as your tannin concern with your wood. Keep up the egular water changes and this will gradually get rid of the ammount of tannin in the tank. Tetras love this sort of water, although i would be care
  15. hay jordon. nice to hear from you. I love the display. Its basic and sophisticated. your cod is doing just fine and feeding happily. glad you could be here.
