  1. The 2014 QFAS Market day is being held at Springwood Road State School on Saturday,July 26 from 10:00 am til 2:00 pm. (facebook event here or hashtag QFAS) Easy access from the Southeast Freeway and plenty of parking right at the door. FOR SELLERS If you would like to hire a site to sell product then you need to contact Peter Johnson either by pm or by email (peterrjohnson@hotmail.com). Setup from 9:00 am. Costs are; powered sites $35.00 unpowered sites $30.00. There are also aprox 12 tables available for hire at $10.00 per table. Guidelines: Any Aquarium Hobby related item may be sold. The seller can use all or part of the space allocated for the sale of items. Sellers can have a table or multiple tables but they must NOT spread outside the allocated area. If a seller requires more space they can take out a second space providing one is available, otherwise they must refill their space from their car. Prices must be clearly marked for every item sold. All Fish should be of a saleable size, minimum 4cm Total length (from tip of nose to end of tail) unless a dwarf species of fish then they should be a minimum of 2.5cm. Q.F.A.S. will NOT accept any more than 5 fish in any one bag unless they are small fish (under 6cm) or the bag is a very large bag. This is for the health of the fish. Large fish must be in suitably sized containers not squashed up in small bags, buckets etc. All fish should be in a healthy condition, No sick or deformed fish to be sold. There no number limits, so if you wanted to you could have 100 electric yellows for sale etc. How fish are displayed, sold and bagged is up to the seller. Be aware that Q.F.A.S. considers the health and welfare of the fish to be paramount and anyone who does the wrong thing in this regard, will be asked to clean up their act ONCE and if they fail to rectify the situation will be asked to stop selling, pack up and leave. In this situation no refund would apply. All chemicals must be sealed and not out of date. No half empty containers. No electrical goods of any kind. No potted plants (pots with synthetic media excluded). No gravel smaller than 10mm, shell grit, coral sand, sand or any item containing dirt or gravel will be sold. This will help in stopping the spread of Fire Ants. Sellers MUST provide their own change. Clubs and Shops welcome to put in tables.
  2. BCC has organised permits from DAFF and asked ANGFA Qld to co-host a pest fish information day at Forest Lake on May 25. BCC Pest Fish Education Event Hope to see some locals there .
  3. Some of you may have seen Adam Kereszy present at ANGFA Qld meetings or conventions. He's been working hard on red-finned blue-eye conservation (Australia's most endangered freshwater fish) for many years. He's back in the news as Bush Heritage Australia is hoping to get permission to establish captive populations this year. Push to move threatened outback fish into captivity
  4. Reminder for tomorrow, it'd be great to see some of you there!
  5. ANGFA Queenslands first meeting for 2014 takes place at the Bar Jai on Friday Night (14/2/2014). PREVIEW This meeting will include two talks about live foods for home aquarists. The shop will be open with discount books, fish food, and other supplies and there'll be the short (ultra cheap) auction after the talks. Should be a great outing for the missus on valentine's day , though if you're single then what better way to spend valentine's than talking fish! Visitors welcome, starts 7:30.

  6. The Queensland Federation of Aquarium Societies (QFAS) is holding another combined clubs super auction this Saturday! The combined clubs auctions are some of the biggest events on the aquarium hobby calendar for the greater Brisbane area. At QFAS Super Auction you can expect to see a lot of speciality fish, plants, aquarium furnishings, and lots of other hobby related odds and ends – much of which you’re not likely to find in a pet shop. Many club members maintain lineages that aren’t available commercially and/or regularly produce champion fish for our local shows, and bring their surplus along to the auction. It’s a great social outing and if you’re new to the hobby, a great opportunity to seek out some advice, with more fishkeepers in one place than you’d hope to see anywhere else. There’s bound to be plenty of bargains. As well as independent hobbyists there’ll be plenty of members from: Betta Australis; the Brisbane, Redlands, Logan Marine Aquarium Society; Queensland Aquarium Hobbyists; the Queensland Cichlid Group; the Gold Coast Aquarium Society; and ANGFA Qld. There’ll be plants, live foods, Australian & PNG natives, Africans, Americans, Bettas, livebearers, catfish, community tropicals and who knows what else… And it’s all staffed by volunteers, so all of the funds raised through commissions and the canteen go directly towards supporting the clubs that support the hobby. If you are Selling enter via Kate Street where the signs for Indooroopilly Montessori & RiverGlenn (seller check in from 2:00-5:00pm). Follow the road around to the pool on your left, there is a small bus shelter on right for drop off and hall is behind. There are 2 paths the one on the right hand side doesn’t have steps. If you are buying or just looking go to Witton Road into Bridge street Car park on the right. Nudgee Junior College, Kate st Indooroopilly. Fish & other items in at 2.00pm-5pm. Auction starts 4.00pm.
  7. November In-Stream is available now.
  8. Sounds like there will be plenty to choose from http://www.angfaqld.org.au/aqp/blog/2013/10/23/qfas-first-ever-market-day/
  9. Should be a good one Friday night (18/10/2013). Next meeting: convention debrief and blast from the past » ANGFA Queensland
  10. On top of everything else there was a bug stopping some people from getting the download. It's been sorted now so if you had hassles before please give it another go.
  11. The 2013 revision of Adrian Tappin's book A Fishkeeper’s Guide to Mycobacteriosis is now available at ANGFA Qld. Worth checking out since it's an insidious disease that can infect both fish and fishkeepers...
  12. October In-Stream is out . I had to look twice before I spotted who was on the cover.
  13. I should've mentioned, members who had accounts with the old website will need to re-register (you should get a prompt near the e-book), the accounts were lost when the old website died. Sorry for any inconvenience.
  14. Gunther Schmida and ANGFA Qld are providing access to one of his e-books (Hardyheads, Rainbowfish and Blue-eyes) free to members. The photographs are absolutley stunning (of course) and Gunther also provides a lot of other useful information. I'd heard him talk about the rainbowfish groupings and differences in body shape, but seeing it presented graphically makes it much easier to understand.
