  1. Thinking about one for a tank I am setting up as there are some online for $5 :-)Good idea or go with a sponge? 200L per hour
  2. Okies, so if i set it up and as long as there are bubbles coming out the top of the spone filter (ie age of aquariums type) I should assume its workin enough?
  3. Hi All, I have this cute little air pump here doing nothing, so am going to set up a sponge filter in my betta tank (which is minus a betta at the moment!). Just wondering if anyone knows whether it will be gutsy enough to run a sponge filter with, or whether I am better off getting rid of it and getting something more powerful? They only cost $5 to buy on the net so I can't imagine its very strong... (not sure how much is enough!)?
  4. Hey everyone, ok, I don't know if my betta ate it, or he just left it somewhere, but my albino cory is minus one eye, and just has the .. cavity there.. its like something out of a horror film! what happened to my lil man!
  5. Hey everyone Stupid question, but just wondering if you had a sponge filter going ie one of these http://www.theaquariumshop.com.au/images/t...Mini_Filter.jpg and you turned it off for a few hours a day (ie when in the lounge room trying to watch a movie!) would it be a problem? or do they need to be on 24/7 ? I want to put one in my betta tank in the lounge room to ease how many water changes I'm doing, but the noise is the problem! I could leave it on all day from 6am till about 7pm... then would want to turn it off for a bit.. if it isn't possible, i just wont get one, or consider
  6. I've never had barbs before - will look them up :-) Anyone around our area breed guppies that you know of Calla?
  7. :-) guppies are up the top of my list - how many in this size tank?
  8. Big thanks to Calla who gave me my old tank back, this is it so far. Just wondering what anyone suggest in terms of more decoration/ornaments/plants etc.. and stocking suggestions. I was given some free albino convicts (in pic) however I don't really want them long term.. will give away to someone who wants them -they will grow too big for this tank anyway! They are too aggressive to put anything else in there with them. I want something with a fair bit of colour in there.. This tank is in my office -which doubles as my room away from the world to do meditation and relax.. so I want
  9. Not sure if anyone else here has Kribs - but just wondering if I should be ok to put some guppies in my community tank with him + the platies already in there?
  10. Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm going to try some khulis I think, as I can't find otos anywhere..
  11. I love it! heheh I've been asking if I can have a 4 foot for ages, but scott won't have any of it lol
  12. awesome! cant wait to see a pic ab! Can you put a net or something in there and save any of them, and grow me a baby or 5 heheh
  13. Thanks for the replies, will go somewhere else and see how I go (and yep, will check their policies first!)
  14. I think I should be allowed to name it - I wasn't defaming it,just stating that I was upset at their lack of help! Anyhoo - sucks to hear it happens a lot!
  15. Hi all well, I went to a LFS on Sunday, and got 3 gorgeous platies, a snail and a spiny eel (eel upon advice of the sales person there!). Did all my testing, did the whole intro correctly etc.. 3 platies and snail are fine, but eel wasn't well that night and died yesterday. I contacted the store and was bluntly and unapologetically told that they couldn't' help me and I would not be getting a refund or anything given in exchange. I'm really annoyed because I did everything right my end, and obviously the poor thing was already weak or sick. Feel hard done by cos he cost me $8.95 and I spend
