  8. dose any one know how long it will take for magrove roots to dry out to be safe to use in my fish tanks these are fresh from the mud flats (just so im clear these are the dead stumps not living tree roots) and is there anything else that i will need to do to them ? i would show you a pic but photobucket is not working for me i have tried 4 times to upload it but i will try again latter Aaron finally nineth try but here it is
  9. :P its not looking like i will make this one either i will be moving this week so wont have any spare money to get down there let alone buy anything and so much for forward planing the money i had saved is needed for the bond and the money i get this week will be used to do the moving. my hopes to ever make a BBG are getting smaller but time will tell something has to go right for me one of these days

    magrove roots

    well it took me a bit longer than id hoped for but got one in Peter no ill effects as of yet, no tannins that i can see if there is its minimal the roots sat in the wether for near six months and the bark was easy to remove after the first soak and here is what ive done with it a few days after the plants and fish went in better shot of the log and finaly what it looks like today its had a small alteration when i got some new plants

    some new additions

    hi all i spent a few weeks at my sisters to help babysit while she was in hopital with number 5 and while i was there i cought myself 6 red claws they range in size the smallest is 5-6 cm and the largest is 7-8 cm and now they have settled thought i would share them with you the tank is nothing fancy but i think it works with the plastic plants i had sitting in around

    some new additions

    i used to have a pair of blue crays when younger and within months was over run with babys good times lol. i want to get something a little more fancy later on and thought these would be good to start with sadly after i had moved it onto a new stand the tank sprung a major leak and i lost half the water onto my bedroom floor its sad cause i was really really happy with how id set it up,the crays are fine and were moved to a tank on the varander they will have to stay there untill i get the tank fixed :)
  15. hi all im after some advice on some easy to find and care for plants for my tank its looking a little empty tank does not need to look overly pretty as it is a grow out tank but it dose need something the tank is located near window and gets morning sun and if a door left open afternoon as well i dont have a good light on this tank but it is one the list as is a lot of things occupants are BN fry from three spawns that range from a month to 1 week olds and two boys a HM and PK ( that got moved when we had some cold wether ) i like the log with the plants in front but think it needs some thing behind it that runs towords the other side any sugestions welcome
  16. having it the same day as the auctions sounds like a plan only thing is i have a realy horrible feeling i will be in the prosess of moving house lease runs out about then. if i am i will happily take the day off to make it this time lol
  17. sounds like you all had a good time not to worry guess it will teach me for not getting there
  18. hope you all have a great day tomorrow and get what your after at the auctions cheaply so you can get lots more lol that will only work if your the only one who brings a camra :lookaround:

    lost and found fish

    at the begining of spring i decided to set up an empty tank i have for mozzies and to keep some plants scraps that broke off and where floating on top of my tank i had two spawns going so i needed the wrigglers fast so i decided where i wanted the tank outside set it all up and whent to clean fry tanks so i could use the old water for out side i checked for fry as one dose staring in a bucket for anything that moves nothing dose at first but i later pull two out and replace them in thier tank after a bout 5 - 10 min i figure ive got them all so i take the bucket outside and tip it in the tank and walk away now i have been colecting rafts and wrigglers since and topping it up as it gets low, because this tank gets full afternoon sun it has gone green so there is no hope of seing the bottom , today i was out there collecting and who do you think was staring at me this little fish, that took my 20 min to net the only thing is that i dont know what spawn it came from i know the male but i spawned him to more than one female. sorry for bad pic but i put ( her i think ) in a tank inside and she wont leave the back of it
