Recommended Posts

Hi All

Aquarium Life forum members have informed they would like a swap meet.

If any of you would like to do a swap meet please find below the details of the meet

Date: Saturday, 23rd June 2012

Place: My place at Lidcombe (It's around 2000 steps from Lidcombe station so if you are wanting a healthy stroll you are more then welcome to) please pm for details

(I will let you know my address about 1pm on the day so it will only guarantee those who are coming)..please pm me your mobile number as I will sms it across

You will get a confirmation at 10am on the day.

Time: 2-5pm

Anyone can come along to swap and purchase.

If you are a beginner come along as well.

However, I need to cap it to 30 people only or thereabouts.

Some of the highlights of the day are:

* Fishrooms tour

* Infusoria Culturing

* Blackworms culturing

Also if you want you can raid the veggie yard as we have a few extra asian greens.

There might be a few surprises for those who rsvp early..

If my pm gets too full please sms me on 0433784171

Hope to see as many of you as possible.

PS: If you have already came along to my place, don't worry about rsvping just come along :)

Also just bring a SMALL plate of food or a bottle of drink to share

Hey gang..

Thanks for all those who responded. Think there is around 15 people coming so far...so more or less halfway there..

It would be good to see some new and old faces again

Also if you can bring some portable chairs for you to sit on that will be great as we don't have that many chairs.

For those interested you can grab some of the water plants that i have around the house as a swap or for purchase.

Also I am also thinking of holding a mini raffle on a DIY LED strip that contains a 25cm IP68 Cool White 6500K and also a 15cm IP67 UV 400nm strip. Will post pics soon..

Looking forward to meeting you all.

Thanks again

Hi again all..

For those coming to the swap meet you can have a chance to win the below

Light ON:


Light OFF:


Raffle will be sold on the day (Sam hensen2476 will be the man to see..if he agrees ;D)

Not sure of prices

The specs are:

25cm Cool White LED Strip IP68 (6500K) <1.2W

15cm UV 400nm LED Strip IP67 < 0.5W

These LEDs has been especially created for me direct from the manufacturers.

They will not degrade or loose wattage as time goes on..I have got some dodgy once you get from eBay for comparison (for those who come along to the swap meet)

It will light up a 45 cm tank and you will be able to grow plenty of plants on it (but please note that it cannot grow light hungry plants like hc)

In another life I would've moved to Melbourne...such a great sense of culture down there...perhaps one day soon

I will be visiting Melbourne on November though ;)

And will be visiting it twice at 2013 due to ANGFA Conference and another conference ;)
