  1. I have called bayfish, but alas we have to go through a retailer to actually get the fish themselves :-( I agree, they are great as a display fish. Hopefully we can produce them in some numbers so more people can enjoy them like that :)
  2. I don't think Bayfish would be too impressed either, they may have trouble shifting those last few males! I am stoked that Bay has gotten German killies in several times this year tho Let's hope they keep it up in 2011!!
  3. The females seem to have disappeared by Saturday or Sunday, except for one that was on hold yesterday.
  4. Just to make sure I catch everyone who might be interested, I am planning an order of these fish for interested people in Sydney. Due to the small numbers of these fish imported, we're having to do it in a hurry. But for those interested, please contact me tonight either PM, email or phone on 0425 312 347 for details. If all goes to plan, I'll place the order tmw morning and we'll have the fish by Friday!
  5. As some of you guys know, the native fish group ANGFA had a field trip up at Cairns recently, and I was lucky enough to be able to make it. I will be giving a really informal presentation on the trip at the meeting Saturday. It'll probably just consist of looking through the photos from the trip and chatting about whatever interests people. So I dunno if that prospect is an incentive or disincentive to come, but there you have it! I look forward to catching up with as many of you as are able to make it :)
  6. Be there or be . . . elsewhere :)
  7. Going to the koi show!!

      Take PHOTOS!!!!

      Did any of us take photos? It was a Future Champions show so the fish were all 1' or less in length. I was really impressed with the quality, given the shrinking gene pool we have to work with in Australia.

  8. I would definitely say a boy, and a nice wild type, in finnage and colour. Good find!
  9. Congrats on the babies! All thousands of them :)
  10. That would be freezing them in our fridge! :)
  11. Yay! Great that you guys can make it. I think the raffle wouldn't normally take place till around 4pm or so, and I'm sure we can make sure it's so :D
  12. Ooh, good point! I transferred my eggs to a glass Moccona jar.
  13. Yan, plants will be fine in a small airtight container or bag, if you are at all worried you can put a few mils of water in w them to make sure they don't dry out. Looking forward to the lilies! :D
  14. I would put the whole tin in the freezer, but put a week or two's worth in another small airtight container and put these in the fridge or in a cool place near your bss hatching setup. This saves opening the tin too often, and each time letting in air and moisture. I'm not sure that the lid on the tin provides a great seal, maybe a different container would be better.
