  1. Welcome Meg, last time I was in Mackay I was meant to go and check out a LFS there to see what it's like..... no idea which one it was though - I drive down on the odd occassion to see a mate of mine. Pond sounds cool! hope you enjoy the forum :(
  2. hmm, well it wasnt whitespot as shown in the pic you posted neffy, it was MUCH smaller.... hopefully it doesnt come back again..... thanks for those 2 pics though, good for future reference :)
  3. Thanks for the kind words! thankfully the fish are very happy in this tank, there are next to no fights, the rams are estabilishing their territories now which is good - 10 of them = a bit of bickering but nothing major. if anyone is wondering why i have 3 golds and 3 blues is because there are 2 males in each of the 3, meaning 1 of the males will become the alpha male in each colouration and are VERY bright!!!!
  4. Well, As most of you all know, I have 2 tanks in my room....... 1 being my fighter tank which belongs on my dresser.... and the other is my pride and joy... a 3ft 170od litre community (i guess) tank.... since I signed up here, the inhabbitants of the tank have changed...... a little... heres a quick rundown of it as it sits right now. Size: 3ft x 1.5ft x 2ft (i think) Filteration: Fluval U4 Internal Filter Heater: Ehiem Jager 125w Light: 3ft Aqua 1 with Life-Glo bulb Substrate: Silica Sand Houses: 3 Blue Rams 3 Gold Rams 4 Neon Blue Rams 2 Siamese Flying Fox 2 Bristle
  5. here's the new male........ hes a PITA to get a pic of flaring! I spoke to one of the "specialist" LFS's in town yesterday before I got home to find my male dead, he stated that due to the current drop in temps at night its highly likely that the lice etc have come out from that..... he mentioned that he had been fighting a lot of white spot aswell over the past week or so...... (different shop to this male is from)
  6. what i could gather, looked like small grains of white sand (funnily enough I have that in my 3 ft tank), he would rub up against the anubia and hair grass which gave the indication of it being lice...... he probably had 15 od "specs" on him if my new male wasnt so skittish i would have a picture of him already. will try again now.
  7. Well... I am rather unhappy at the moment, Friday afternoon I noticed my male acting VERY strange, had a closer look at him and it seemed to be covered in lice. I did a prompt dosing for it aswell as 90% water change, but unfortunately when I returned home yesterday he was no more seems it was a very bad case of lice and stressed him out way too quickly for me to treat in time... I will get another CT copper mustard when someone gets one in to match the female (who is a complete bitch of a fish) but for now, I have purchased a red CT from the newest LFS in town..... I have been eyeing this
  8. Lisa, you should be able to specify it as a required field for registration. :D
  9. Welcome! what colouration is he? I have bought 3 fish from someone in Brisbane - very nice fish!!! www.youtube.com/fishchick65 - she is currently away in Thailand though....
  10. what kind of wire is it? I've been told wire affects the water due to being bare metal/metalic
  11. Well, I am currently looking into getting another tank 304x203x175mm made up to match my current tank that is divided into 2 which houses this pair...... IF I can EVER get a hold of a pair of "Black Devil" HM's they will be snapped up instantly (pending money of course) and put into the same setup as this pair are in at the moment. I havent taken any new photo's lately as I havent had a lot of time to myself, they are going well, I might take the divider out of the tank to see how nicely they play with each other, but not overly sure just yet.
  12. I should really stop clicking this thread, It's making me want a tank of Cherry or Fire Shrimp :D
  13. LOL @ that pic! I am inlove with your tank. kinda want it!!!!
  14. As I said in your intro thread, beautiful tank! that really does look awesome!!
  15. beatiful tank!!!!!!! that looks really awesome! especially broken up with the tree branches going through it! well done! also, welcome to AAQ hope you enjoy it!
  16. www.livefish.com.au seem to have a good range, not sure what they are like to buy from though - been toying with the idea for some time LOL Red Honey Dwarf, Honey Dwarf, Flameback Dwarf, Coral Blue Dwarf, Dwarf Gourami..... there are heaps you can pick! I haven't seen the reds come up on full colour yet which I am waiting for..... mum's tank just isnt bringing it out as fast as mine does!
  17. what gouramis are you going to look into? if dwarves are by far the prettiest I find, If I could be bothered Id get you a picture of my pair of honey's..... they are in full colour as always when the light is on. as for new fish - videos will probably be made LOL
  18. Dwarf gourami's if its a small tank seem to like bugging fighters...... in my 3ft tank though, they are awesome! offtopic - apisto's to be ordered rather soon LOL with another form of cichlid :P
  19. molly's are the same as everythign else you have listed, will be fine if yo uwere closer you could buy 90% of my fish LOL - i want to get Apisto's/kribs/more rams
  20. wow, thats not a lot of fish in a 3ft! they will all be fine together, just watch the dwarf gouramis, depending on which ones you pick, some can be nippy as such.... we have 2 coral blue 2 dwarf and 2 red honey dwarves one tank by themselves, they are fine.... when they were with tetra they would stalk them.... BN you will hardly see lol. the cories.... they will be fine aswell, just watch the BN doesnt get too big and start bossing them around... female fighters should be fine! what are you using as substrate - plants etc? Even though I have a "small fish" community, they do

    if you dont mind a filter in the tank, Fluval U series filters are AWESOME! I have one in my 3ft but I may upgrade to a Fluval 305 soonish....

    welcome to AAQ Forums... nice looking tank - doesnt look like it would be the hardest to keep clean. what filter system are you using on it?
  23. i found it almost impossible to keep plants buried with my U4 powering through the top level of water, it generally dragged plants straight out of the ground, once they got roots growing properly they were fine, i have a sword thats got roots about 8 inches each side of the plant! Hmmmmm, spose i should stop being so lazy and trying to make things easy for myself LOL. overall, I have a lot more pleasure looking at my tank over the others in the household which all have gravel....
