  1. Happy Birthday Nina. Hope you are having a lovely day. Best wishes from Ann, Carmel and Sherrie.
  2. I would be happy to lend him or sell him to someone who wants to breed him. I love his colours. They came out well in the photos of him.
  3. Do you have a filter in the tank, or any aeration?
  4. Happy to have a critique of them, thanks Lilli
  5. Here are photos of two new boys from Nicebettas. Photos used with permission from Vinita from Nicebettas. She is such a lovely person to deal with. Mainly bought as 'show ponies', as I loved their colours. But I will probably get some girls from her to go with them. They have arrived at Jodie's last night. So I'm excited about getting them soon.
  6. I looked these up on their website, and they only increase the temp. by approx. 2 degrees. So it would depend on how cold your room got at night. I've been looking at them as well. Age of Aquariums seems to be the cheapest for these and the 25watts, and they will beat any cheaper price found. Has anyone found them cheaper? 7.5 watt $24.00 25 watt mini heater $18.00 At least the 25watt is fully adjustable, so I think I will go with that one.
  7. makes you think twice about these pretty marbles on Aquabid. To change that much in colour is amazing. I had a foal that changed colour 6 times. He is still growing out into a lovely boy, Jo.
  8. Wow, fantastic Holly!!!! I love this: "Then my 4 year old came running & threw his arms around me & said "I'm so proud of you Mummy!". That was so lovely. We have fry hatching this morning, from an VT with long fin extensions (he looks like some sort of crossbred), and a Green Snow HMPK girl.
  9. Lovely photos. There are some other nice ones in the background as well, esp. the blue and yellow one.
  10. We never change all their water at once. 25 to 50% at a time, at the most. Not sure if you meant you changed all their water at once?
  11. we also have an orange one here. His fins aren't quite as long, but they are a lot wider. If anyone wishes to use them, they are most welcome
  12. Hi Lilli, one day at a time is the best way to do it. I was a bit disapointed today, as I thought they had died, or been eaten by dad. But we put the light on them tonight, and they are still swimming around. Makes you wonder how something so tiny could survive at all in the wild. Thanks Jo, have deleted some messages.

    Our male was building a nest, so we put a girl in with him, They seemed over excited, and destroyed the nest, mainly with him chasing her. She had slightly torn fins. Then we sat the girl in a jar next to the male's tank, so they could get used to each other. He had an average bubble nest, but when we put her next to him, he built a huge bubble nest. Then when we put them back together, they accepted each other really well. They spawned within a day. There was no further damage to her fins.
  14. Jo. I know every fish, what they are, and what they look like, lots of observation and attention. But there is no way I am going to count them. Far to frightening. Lots of work to maintain them, but fun.. Most of them were at the Melb meeting, but we bought more there too. Also my imports should arrive at Louise's on Thursday. Can't wait. I'll be bringing some of them to the next Melb. meeting. Hopefully there will be some babies from them to bring as well. Winterwhite, I'll keep you updated on your's.
