  1. How did this go guys? Lots of interest and enthusiasm? Cheers, J
  2. The next shipment from Thailand is due the week of 17th June. Please finalise all Aquabid/private purchases and forward a list and payment ASAP. We will continue to do private imports. However, payment for importing and local shipping must be received before the fish are shipped. A list of all fish and seller details must be received 10 days before shipment. We will no longer hold fish. As soon as they clear quarantine they will be shipped. Please ensure you are able to receive your stock. Best regards, someone
  3. Nice photographic work, colours are great. I usually don't comment on some of the odd things/lies/slander/fabrications etc I see written about me, but this is so bizarre I have to say something. Personally, I very much doubt the bettas have been imported from Germany. It seems an odd thing to do when the world's biggest producer of bettas (Thailand) is a lot closer, and a lot cheaper. However, it may be that the importer in question gets some of the HM stock from the German supplier when they order in other fish. The German supplier brings in the Bettas from Thailand, so your boys have

  12. Some info from Victoria http://bettysplendens.com/articles/page.imp?articleid=2985 We are going to set up one of the original stands with 2 x 2L and 4L glass tanks for the wild pairs. Small, agressive pairs like smaragdina can be housed in 2 x 2L, whereas compatible pairs like channoides can be housed in a 4L tank. Big, mouthbrooding pairs can be housed in 2 x 4L tanks. Tanks will have floating ketapang leaves and floating plants to keep the fish comfortable. Please let the Show Chair, ie me, know ASAP if you intend to enter wilds so we can arrange enough tanks. It is common in Area
  13. Information re showing wilds http://www.users.on.net/~someone/IBC%20Show%20Stds/ Cheers, someone
  14. we have single pk males - copper, fancy etc. Keep an eye on the youtube channel.

    Cheers, someone

  15. Phillip Shaddock (world leader in guppy genetics) has just published a new book "Guppy Colour Manual" We have a couple of copies on the way. Unfortunately there was a slight mix-up with the printing. There are a couple of copies left, being offered at a discount. You can read about it and order a copy of the manual here: http://www.guppydesigner.com/index.php/blog/49-color-manual-disaster If you are keen on breeding guppies, showing, understanding colour combinations etc this is a must have. The humble guppy is far more than meets the eye! Best regards, someone
  16. It is pleasing to see the fish looking so nice Ken. You are doing a good job. The Mustard gas and Mustard dragon at the top are from the breeder Thitipong (Patsayawan) in Thailand. Nice guy and his fish are strong on form. You need small, young females to help with ease of spawning. We always ask for sibling females if they are available. At the very least they will be from the same strain (brother spawns etc) The bottom 2 pics are fish from Pichet (Interfish) The last fish was not sold as a Dumbo. However, Pichet produces many Dumbo colour strains (HMPK and HM) (and is our main sup
  17. Hi All, just a quick note to let you know the store will close at 4pm today (Wed 18th April 2012). Business as per usual tomorrow. Apologies for any inconvenience. Best regards, someone
  18. No, not released from Q until later in the week. May be in store the following week. Have to sort out all the pre-orders first. Cheers, someone
  19. Quick videos of some of the male guppies in quarantine yesterday. enjoy! someone (Wasn't quite sure where to put this on this forum, so please move/delete if not appropriate)
  20. I think this is a midnight blue, or metallic blue. You can make "fancy" guppies from any LFS stock. It comes down to having a goal in mind when breeding, and being prepared to cull heavily (even if this means just giving your non-keep stock to a store.) It will take several generations. Plenty of time to research guppy genetics! Work out what you want to produce. Select for the traits you like. For example: If you want to produce a guppy with a black body and red tail, look for fish showing this trait, with nice, clean demarkation between the black and red, and as vibrant colours as pos
  21. I'm looking forward to this! Am wondering if anyone else on here can remember the first "Betta Grooming Comp" that we tried on the old Betta Forum? Would have been in early 2006. Anyone else remember the god-awful yellow CT from the "Great" Henry YIn? Cheers, someone
  22. Sad news, but at least the show will go on. I wholeheartedly thank Lisa and the team for a pleasant, well run forum. Wishing you all many happy years ahead. Kind regards, someone
  23. most important - go back to using dechlorinated tap water. Rain water is too soft and acidic for guppies. They require hard, alkaline water. If your tap water is not pH 7 or greater use buffers and/or livebearer salts. Cheers, someone
