  1. Annubias is pretty much betta keepers favourite plants. Can't imagine tanks without them nowdays
  2. Even the most experienced still get thrown off by genetics Bt is probably one of the best with working out genetics, far better than I ever could be

    endlers in aus

    I feel this is a similar topic to that with wild bettas. I feel that unless you bought your endlers as a wild strain, you shouldn't try to label them as such. Label them as aquarium strain. Or just as the colour pattern they are. Again just my view, prefer to keep things correct rather than guessing.

    Water PH

    Everyone is asking about substrate. What rocks are in your tank? That picture makes me feel the rocks are raising your ph

    If you want big fish you can look at some locally bred unimac complex fish. There's a few hobbyists breeding and selling some stunning fish for cheap prices

    If youve never kept wilds before I'd suggest starting on a different species. For the price Macs are, it would be very sad to see anything happen to them. There are some species very similar but much lower price tag where you can learn from any mistakes. My first wilds were betta Unimaculata. We bought 5. Put them in a tank, cling wrapped the whole thing, then put cover glass on. The next morning we found two dried up on the ground. Found they had jumped onto a ledge, crawled along some glass, and then out of the tank.

    Yo im new :)

    Welcome Liam. You mention too many tank syndrome. How many tanks have you got and what's in them all? Also so you know, no such thing as too many tanks.
  11. Quick tip, most lights with blue lights are designed for marine so the Kelvin rating is much higher than you would generally have if you were growing plants. If no plants, to my knowledge it won't make much difference. We aim got 800k to 10000k for all our tanks, and on for 8 hours a day with an hour break in the middle
  12. If you speak to Leslie dear on Facebook his planning to become an accredited guppy judge so he may be good to answer your questions.
  13. The night of the water changes we/mostly maddie did every tank inside (15 tanks) and a few of the outside tanks. And it's only effected the one tank which makes we feel it wasn't the water supply but something external. My thought was possibly shock from being in very very green water, to clean water, with the algeacide made it too much for the bettas in the tank. But that still makes it odd the clown killis in the same tank were fine. Hopefully of the ones who survived we have a few good lookers among it to get a decent f2 out of them.
  14. Is this another place we aren't allowed to use any form of logic?

    Maddie can update all of ours soon. We have run out of beanie boxes so need to order more and set up more housing. Hard to measure in poly boxes
