  1. Happy Birthday Cassi. We miss seeing you around the forum :)

  2. Happy birthday Cassi!

  3. So glad to hear!

    Hope you have a great year to follow! :)

  4. Thanks Sarah!! I'm having a wonderful time so far. I've come down south to chilly VIC to visit with my sister for the week of my birthday! It's been great!

  5. Happy Birthday Cassi!

    Hope you have a fantabiulous day. :D

  6. I would remove that moss, it looks dead to me and it can't be saved in my opinion. I, like Joan, have java moss in my shrimp tank and can't STOP it from growing. I have to thin it out every few months or I lose track of my shrimp... I also know there's a driftwood piece in there with java fern attached but I can't see it any longer due to the abundance of moss! I don't do anything to my shrimp tank at all. It has a 2ft light, that I rarely remember to put on, a sponge filter and a TON of shrimp that are probably over populating the tank as we speak. I almost NEVER suction vac the floor of the

      I have eggs too!!! from two different females....

      the winning combo seems to be dropping the heater temp (tank is sitting around 26°C-27°C), give them a really good feed. Heaps of algae pellets, some fresh foods too eg zucchini/cucumber and just wait. A largish WC doesn't hurt either..and of course a breeding cave!

      Congratulations! I love BN, and just recently my dad got me one for a 2ft tank of mine, and it was my very first one. Sadly he died 2days later.. not sure why. R.I.P. Mr. Squiggle.

  8. I have guppy fry!!! I suspsect the opaline gourami's have been eating any dropped fry up till now. Now I have the hatchery set up we should have more guppy-endlers to add to the community tank in a few weeks!

  9. I don't think they will self-regulate. I started with almost 50 shrimp in my 3.4ft tank but my cichlids got to them and annihilated the population down to 8. I managed to save those and put them into a 2ft species tank with java moss, hornwort, sponge filter and some driftwood (with java fern attached) and within a month those 8 had grown to around 30 in number, now 3 months later I have well over 150 (only time I attempted to count them all I got to 130 and there were still more!) I know I need to get rid of some, and soon. They are over populating the tank. Everywhere you look there are adul
  10. I'd also be worried about the variation in temperature from the direct sunlight. Bettas like consistent temps and being in direct sunlight would vary it, clouds crossing as an example and as the sun progresses across the sky. Just a thought.
  11. My Black Dragon PK is dying :(

      That's no good. Was he a Blacksmith?

    3. Anasfire


      nah, he was a Peta spawn. Freebie fishie. Both his sib sisters died before I could spawn them with him, and as soon as I was offered another sib sister (that Kandee has) to borrow to spawn with him, he died on me! Typical.

      Sorry Cassi. I've had no luck with his siblings either, the last one died over night. I hope someone got to breed them, they were nice looking fish.

  12. The java moss in my shrimp tank has been getting this white cottony stuff growing on it of late and I don't know what it is Does anyone know what it is? It doesn't appear to be hurting the plant and the shrimp seem to like eating it whatever it is, I'm just curious...
  13. True! Yeah, I asked a friend what song said 'extreme sports' to her and she sent me that one so I used it. I actually filmed it sideways...but found out how to turn video's around using my video editing software, hence all the black around the outsides. Mr Extremo was at it again this morning, but according to my son, he had his head right down inside the grey part Maybe the more intense bubbles feel better?! lol
  14. What do you do if you were born a fish, but you also love extreme sports? You do EXTREME BRISTLENOSING! "Just one seconds lapse in concentration dude and those bubbles will propel you out of the water and into the air man, then god only knows where you'll end up! Extreme dude, totally" PS my son Kaleb gave this little BN the name Mr Extremo. He does this all the time too, it's not a once off occurrence. The bubbles must feel good. It cracks me up!
  15. I'll link you next time you are on to some diffusers that are $6.80ea, locally, and they combine shipping..but if you can wait I'll be getting some stuff from them soon and I'll bring it up when I come see ya when I get my car back!
