  1. I is a very happy camper currently Chi's fishus got to me finally! 4 male half moons 6 female half moons 5 black orchid double crowntails ^_^/> i think 3 have defiant egg spots the other two are too little to tell yet me thinks ok lets see: this boy i hopes just a colour pattern lol he is already named Pirate :)/> will have to upload in bits :)/>
  2. yeh i got my fish safe silicone at bunnings i think it was yeh $8-$10 for a tube, my issue is Baby brain mixed with house move and at least 6 different ets of handds i can no longer find said tube or chalking gun >.< Ness whats the mess you used? im currently using a craft mesh but its not very tall. And i get the display folders that the spin swings off piviot at top, i pull it off and find the mesh slides into it very easily, being white its hard to see through and if needed i use the plastic off the folder to card them (slid inbeside the mesh) havent had any issues with water parm's going crazy and 2 fish have lived this way quite happily for several months (in 20 litre tanks, filtered and heaters)

    Ok so the only *decent* set up is the 4 foot. everything else is just temp set up cause of the move. Not the best quality images cause thems off the mobile phone. Here is "Moostash" my white/clear CTone eye is dark the other is light and he has a moostash/lipstick and one of my Reticulate "yoyo" Loaches For the time being i will be setting my 2foot wide x 2 foot tall x 1 foot deep tank up on the floor yes it's going to be a PITA when it comes to move it again (will need 100% draining due to empty weight) but then i can set up my 6 foot tall 5 shelf stand and put my tanks back onto that. then i can work at setting up my 20liter tanks 100% and plant them out. also this means i can work in the 2 foot without relying on a freind to help cause i physically *even standing on a chair* cannot reach the bottom.
  8. long time back again with new fish new house and a baby on the way ^_^

  9. This be Blob. Blob thinks himself very pretty :)
  10. Yeh added u, my boy is a bay tb never raced. but has awesome bloodlines.

  11. Yeh i think i have....currently got 5 from their stock, and they are bringing in more between 8-10th lol. horses in ur interests, defiantly hit me up i just got a new horse :D

  12. He told me he gets them from the import room up in Brissy. but oh well i like the colours and have had bubble nests yesterday off both boys.
  13. Picked up a pair of males yesterday ($55 each) Kunopegos, is an Emerald Dragon HM Morax, is a Mosaic Dragon HM Both boys are imported from Germany, apparently my LFS gets first dibs to the same person that sells to Fishchicks.
  14. So I had Ananke in spawn tank (Red VT girl quite large) i put Phanes in, he made epic nest i had her out last night and back in this morning, i didnt see a wrapping or anything but she was quite eggy. so i took her back cause shes quite ill and after speaking to the lfs he wanted to return her to the breeder, i came home Phanes was adding to his nest its beyond epic size now. So out of curiosity i put another girl in the intro jar, but he wanted nothing to do with her. i released her. he was defending the nest quite plainy any time she got close he would hunt her off. ive taken her out, it was just to see if the reaction he had to Ananke in the end was the same as the reaction to Atlanta. Now he wont leave the nest alone. adding bubbles and just circiling under it. Is it possible that he got some eggs out of Ananke (the fatty who looked ready to blow up) she didnt look any more deflated but its got me curious cause hes hardly moving away from nest. he seems to be trolling to see if Atlanta is gone but keeps returning to the nest???

    New fish room

    nah no extending or building up. i saw PLENTY of back yard area, the dogs dont need THAT much back yard, stick another shed in my partners kinda getting the same way not wanting more tanks, i have: 14 bay 4foot tank (empty needs repairing) 1x 2foot (female bettas and snail) 1x 20liter (1 male betta, a few guppies, snail and 1 brstlenose catfish) 5x small tanks (4 have 1 male in them, 5th is spare) 6 bay 2foot (currently with 4 males) 1x square 1 foot spawn tank 1x 1.5 foot 4 bay tank tonight im picking up a normal 4 foot (likely to need resealing) in a few weeks i have another bay tank comming.... then ofcourse ive got a few plastic tanks for qt, two big fish bowls...
  16. So Einstein (now called Pan) his black has bled out, now with the white mixed through looks all black with almost silver rays. when i get one spawn started he will likely be part of the second spawn. fingers crossed
  17. OK so i got all excited and bought two more females. Then with all the guppie issues bf had pointed out a blue vt he liked the last visit, so i went back and got that for him went down to the next town and got my refund on the dodgy guppies, and went to another store and found a white and red double tail male ok the girls. ones actually a male >.< not what i wanted or needed hes chasing the 7 girls around. The girl she settled in ok (Despite the man chasing her, but he seems obsessed with Eos lol) BFS male (Poseidon) aka Bluey is just your plain old vt hes very laid back but tries to show Vin up. Helios (double tail) has a little damage to the upper tail but TLC should fix that. heilos Poseidon cant get pics of the other two (girl and boy) too fast >.< Today i also was given 4 x 4 litre tanks, left over betta food and 4 IAL I was also given a 4 foot long, bit over 1 foot deep and roughly 20-25 cm high (no lids at present needs a crack on the back fixed and new filter media and pumps.it has a built in filter bay right along the back, and 14 bays. correct diamentions to come tomorrow when bfs sober enough to find his tape measure :giggle: I set up a stand for some of these tanks (cause my dining room and kitchens running out of room lol) GUPPY ISSUE UPDATE: found another dead female in the QT tank (she had been looking like death warmed up today and yesterday) she had red spotting on the belly/sides a hole in her underside had a funny look to it so i squeezed it gently and ended up delivering 12 still born babies only a few days off being born ;( so. Helios is in a qt/ 4 litre tank beside the 6 bay looking interested in everything (gravel and some plants) "Athena" aka the male..... is in another 4 litre tank bare on the set up stand, i dont know what I'll do with him just yet hes thrown my ratio out was 8 girls 7 boys now its 8 boys 7 girls. spoke to LFS bout "Athena" and shes more then displeased this isnt the first time its happened in the last three shipments.
  18. Today i added two more male and two more females to the tribe, lord help me, also picked up 4 small single tanks and a 14 bay tank....the bay tankws used when the lady was breeding chilids so bays can be divided into 4 (to hold 56) for fry. Ill b buying dark plastic folders to create cardable bays.
  19. Hey, happy birthday to Jarrod From HisGirl and many fishys

  21. Hi guys, Einny is actually a LFS betta, I have actually touched base with Jim in regards to getting him a girlfriend heading to said petstore again tomorrow (Never buying guppies there again, guppies have introduced fungus into female tank and killed off 7guppies, girls seem to be ok so far treating tank.) so they owe me $20 for the guppies, im picking up 4 tanks tomorrow and likely a good chance possiblity of a new fish IF They have any lookers;)
